We have just returned from a seventeen days trip to Australia. We did meetings in Sydney, Warrnambool, Portland, and finally in Melbourne. The meetings went well and all who attended were blessed. We saw healings from a torn ACL/meniscus, fractured wrist, fibromyalgia, frozen shoulders, broken foot, arthritis and a host of other things during the meetings. There were also many that received freedom from depression and other emotional illnesses. We made some new connections and are trusting that next year will be even better. We were happy to minister at Dominion Grace Church in Lalor (Melbourne) with Pastor Steve Mann and his wife Rose. Steve and Rose are part of the Dominion Grace Australia team along with Dave and Angelica Tremblay of Sydney, Noel and Ann Meekin of Queensland, and Enzo and Loretta DeVincentis of Melbourne. Rex and Wendy Moeller, also of Dominion Grace Ministries Australia, hosted the meetings in Portland. The message of God’s abundant grace and the finished work of Jesus at the cross were strongly emphasized and those that came were greatly refreshed. We thank all of those that helped us and took good care of us while in Australia.
In October we are headed back to Liberia where we have started building a house and building for Dominion Grace Bible School. The Bible school started last month (April) and there are twelve students enrolled. We are trusting that as time goes on, all of West Africa will partake of the bible school. We are still in need of $2500 to complete the building project. If you choose to donate, please specify that your contribution is for the “Liberian Project”. Anyone wishing to make the trip with us in October is welcome. We are also planning a large pastor’s conference the first of next year in Kenya. We have been in contact with Pastor Chriss Lusweti and he has informed us of pastors attending from Uganda and Rwanda. It should be a good conference and trip. Anyone wanting to come on this trip is also welcome, but please contact us first to make sure of the details. We have not been to Kenya since 2009 and we understand that things have greatly increased since our last trip due to the message of God’s grace. We would like to do the same thing in Kenya East Africa that we are doing in Liberia West Africa with our bible school. We trust the Lord to make everything work out and the right people to be in the mix.
Elsa and I are vey grateful for all of your help and support. We are not a large ministry and don’t have a large following, but with your consistent support we have been able to do what God has called us to do. It means a lot to us and we cherish your friendship in endeavoring to minister to the world this great gospel. My heart is to instill the message of God’s freedom through the finished work of Jesus Christ and establish relationships here in the US and throughout the world to advance the kingdom of our Lord. We started in 1990 and are still going strong. We have much to accomplish and we could not do it without your support in prayer and finances. We are at your service for anything, anytime. We answer all of our e-mails and are available via phone or Skype for any of your needs or just to chat. Check out our websites (joefunaro.com; dominiongrace.org; lifedominion.org) for upcoming news and recent messages. I have finished the second year of our online bible school and we are working on getting that on the web as soon as possible. If you know anyone in the Greater Denver area looking for a church you can refer them to Dominion Life World Outreach Center in North Glenn, Colorado. The web page for the church is lifedominion.org. It is loaded with information, videos and contact information. We are doing everything we know to affect the world for Jesus Christ by sowing our lives into people and teaching and ministering the Word of God. Until next month, love in Christ.
Sincerely, Joe and Elsa Funaro DGM
