I forgot to add the important part of my update, the figures.

 

Please find the correct report as follows.

 

Jason Ministries Update

 

(Oceania, Africa, Asia, Middle East)

 

COUNTRY August 2016 November 2016 Plus Minus

 

1) Afghanistan 02 03 +1

 

2) American Samoa 16 18 +2

 

3) Australia 11 11

 

4) DC Congo 08 10 +2

 

5) Fiji 04 05 +1

 

6) Ghana 01 03 +2

 

7) Iran 13 15 +2

 

8) Kenya 06 05 -1

 

9)New Caledonia 07 10 +3

 

10) New Zealand 08 07 -1

 

11) Nigeria 02 02

 

12) Papua New Guinea 31 37 +6

 

13) Philippines 58 64 +6

 

14) Republic of the Congo 07 08 +1

 

15) Samoa 19 23 +4

 

16) Singapore 27 30 +3

21) Uganda 00 00

 

22) United Kingdom 03 06 +3

 

23) United States of America 04 08 +4

 

Totals 290 334 +46 -2

 

Of interest is the following:

 

Increase All countries with the exception of the following.

 

No change Australia, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Sudan

 

Loss New Zealand, Kenya

 

This represents an increase of 46 since August 2016 Online Group members.

 

Sadly we lost 2 online members Internationally. We will pray that they return and try again to overcome SSA.

 

A few countries are bucking the trend in their respective countries:

 

Philippines and Thailand are continuing to grow regardless of their openness to "selling sex" now seen as a tourist commodity and unacceptable in the sight of almighty God. Please pray that more people will see the light and desire freedom.

 

Iran is sadly displays an open rejection of SSA. However, almighty God is opening a door for that country to share their concerns and frustrations with SSA.

 

The online anonymity seems to be helping members by holding firm to their confidences and yet at the same time, opening up to much needed sharing with others who are experiencing the same or similar concerns in the lives as far as SSA goes. I am likewise seeing a deepening of Christian understandings by a number within the Group. This is a very difficult thing to achieve given the backgrounds that some have come from given the countries that they live in and the pressures that they live under such as Islamic and other beliefs that have ruled their lives. It is a blessing to see these men opening their hearts to receive the Gospel and indeed starting to talk freely about almighty God.

 

The Lord is continuing to do a mighty work of grace in the above mentioned countries. Oftentimes I have no knowledge as to how these dear souls happen to come across JASON, but I am pleased they do. There is so much hurt, suffering and pain being experienced by these members that they are crying for help and turning to Jesus Christ to turn them from SSA to that which is beautiful in His sight.

 

Let us together uphold these dear people and their countries before the throne of grace and seek blessings on them all from almighty God.

 

God bless.
