Africa 7 Country Mission with pictures
Dear Family and friends,
RE: AFRICA 7 COUNTRY MISSION
TEXT:"Mt. 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.

Dr. Rose and daughter Jenny will be reaching over 3 million with TV coverage, working medical clinics and evangelistic meetings in 7 countries of Africa.
We want to thank you for your continued prayers and support. We have seen God raise the dead, heal the sick, multiply resources, and change hearts for heaven. I have come to understand that God is so powerful and is just waiting for me to ask Him for blessings. He wants to be "employed". I see that He is limited only by our faith. There is a great privilege in serving Him. I cannot out give Him. I tried but it doesn't work. When my home burned to the ground( 9/14/2005), He moved friends of the mission work to provide food, clothes, shelter, car, replacement home, and furniture. He even gave a piano when I prayed and had my sister provide washer and dryer and dental work for the children and I. You cannot out give the Lord. I think of the widow woman whom God commanded to feed prophet Elijah. He sent the prophet on the day she was going to use the last of her food for her son and herself and then die of starvation. I feel ashamed when God sends me like Elijah to people that are starving to death and they are supposed to feed me as their part of the project. Yet based on what I have seen, you cannot out give the LORD.
TEXT: I Kings 17:9 Arise, get thee to Zarephath, which [belongeth] to Zidon, and dwell there: behold, I have commanded a widow woman there to sustain thee.
How impossible could God make this to show His mighty strength. He sends a strong man to be fed by a poor widow that is out of food. All strong Godly men feel responsible to provide food for a poor widow with a son. Now God is doing a parable for millions to see for thousands of years that God is worthy of our praise and He can be trusted to provide for ALL our needs.
TEXT: 17:13 And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go [and] do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring [it] unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son.
17:14 For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day [that] the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.
17:15 And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat [many] days.
17:16 [And] the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah.
Elijah had to remind her there was no need to be afraid of running out of anything anymore. She was living up to all the light she had, which was not very much. But she was climbing Peter's ladder mentioned in 2 Peter 1. She had charity for she had been giving to others in her village during the famine. Now that she was finished with her supply she expected to die but God wanted the rest of the world to see what He does for those who give. LOOK AT IT!
I saw HIM do the same for my cooking oil and flour. It was 12 more days till pay day and I was out of many items in my kitchen. I needed oil to make a flat bread to feed my 4 children. I prayed that this same widow story blessing be mine. He did it for me. I saw it with my own eyes. I saw Him keep oil in that jug. It was not clear full. It was a tiny drip in the bottom that kept coming out till I had a half of a cup for the recipe of yeast bread I was making. I saw Him put enough in my mix for all the other recipes till it was pay day. I saw it with my own eyes. The same God has the same power today.
I find that when He sends me to a family that is to take care of me, it is because He wants to have an excuse to bless that family. We have seen it now for 14 years. But when we stay in a hotel, we cheat God out of His fun of the 100 fold blessing. It also shows a lack of faith on our part. We need to trust God like Elijah.
God gives back 100 times what you give to Him. That widow woman thought she gave her last but when she looked in the barrel, there was the same amount left to make food for herself and her boy. It was not clear full. It was still a small amount. She used that tiny amount each day and again the next day there was a small amount.
That is exactly what God does for me. I give and know there is nothing left but when I need to give again, I have something provided the last minute. Why the last minute? That way I keep humbly praying and listening for directions.
We are about to depart for Africa and will see many more of these kinds of miracles for we do not have enough funds for the whole 7 country project. The one dollar in my pocket will be like the oil. I know it will. Daily we are praying and studying the WORD so we can reach more people. The ladder mentioned in 2 Peter 1:1-9 is so interesting to me. We climb on this ladder to heaven daily adding more character qualities like Jesus. The last one listed is charity. GIVING till it hurts is the secret of opening heaven's resources. That widow gave till it hurt. Then God provided throughout the whole famine and also raised her son back to life when he died and Elijah prayed.
OUR MIRACLE THIS WEEK
WE moved forward in faith arranging the beginning of our 7 country evangelistic efforts when a good size donation came in August. Trying to make it go a long ways, we spent many days looking for lowest fares and booking the most economic travel.

A special double/triple miracle blessing occurred this week when all donation funds were totally wiped out.
Evidence had to be provided of return trip before visa documents could be ordered. A copy of the tickets or itinerary with confirmation had to be sent to the embassy. To be allowed on the airplane to get to Africa, we have to have a visa for Kenya. We will arrange the DRC and other country visas at those borders. The complicated nature of ticketing has taken 3 weeks to figure. Planes don't travel daily and some of the villages have no airport and involve other methods of travel. For 14 years we have always had these challenges yet this area seems to be our greatest challenge so far.
THE MIRACLES: This week, I knew that God was about to deliver financial help. He always waits till the last minute so we can pray more. There was no more time to wait to apply for visa or the passport would not be back in time for the journey. I spent all day trying to get tickets and print out the forms, the itineraries, and get photos and money orders for the visa application. My dear sister said she would help with my ticketing problem round trip in and out of Dem. Rep. of Congo. With relief, I moved quickly to get the documents ready. It was finally all ready and just enough time to get to the post office. My husband then handed me a letter from my auntie Gwen Howard who had sent just exactly the $200. cash I needed to do the visas for the 2 of us. I thanked God and hurried to the post office. God sent exactly what I needed for Visas for Kenya. (Multiple entry visas cost 100 dollars each and Jenny and I had just what was needed. Since we had to include photos, expediting fees and express postage, we only applied for single entry visa)
The third part of the miracle was that my departure date of Dec. 20 had to be tweaked so that we arrived home on that date to avoid the high cost of travel that is placed on the days around Christmas. Three days earlier than planned, we begin to pack and depart. The miracle was that the debit charge was rejected by my bank for a flight not compatible with the Nairobi exit time. I tried 3 times but it failed. Then I discovered I needed a flight 2 days earlier. God prevented the booking for me. It is His work. He has laid on us this work and He will always help if we continue to dedicate our lives to Him. I will book it later when donation arrives.
At the beginning of this week I only had a one way ticket into Africa. Now It is round trip and we are praying next week we will be able to see God provide for a section from southern tip to mid of DRC. Currently we have no funds for this transport over a great distance. We need to fly. The long journey on land is so painfully slow and consumes time that could be used in serving people and telling of the gospel in the heart of DRC where other missionaries have refused to go. Dr. Matenda is from this region and with tears in his eyes he pleaded for his people to receive this program. src="http://illustratedbible.net/blog/data/upimages/Dr_Matenda.jpg" /> War has caused so much suffering here that starvation and sickness is wiping out his tribe.<br />  A fourth miracle is that my translator in the Philippines is gifted in carpentry and designed a gorgeous sanctuary set. I used it in a large gathering of over 2,000 and then he kept and used it for teaching till now. He is very attached to this work of art but he is on the top rung of Peter's ladder of 2 Peter 1 where charity is in his heart. He just needs help with shipment costs. Western Union will get funds to him easy. With sorrow at parting with the precious treasured tools and joy in his heart he is working hard on a gorgeous candlestick to add to the rest of his completed work. It is being prepared to ship to Africa for our TV coverage in DRC. It has a very beautiful appearance and gets points across in such a fine way. The simple stick model that we assemble in small villages is getting worn out. We have just repainted it and will be using it in Kenya. It is covered with pretty cloth and does a good job. We are so grateful to a very wise and talented carpenter in Tecpatan, Mexico (Joel) living in the mountains. He made my current  set we have used in India, Brazil, Paraguay, Mexico, Philippines, with over 40 program series. It has been assembled and crunched around in airports and still works. It was not burned in our fire because as we came home that night from Mexico, my helpers were too tired to put it in the home. It was at the edge of the fire and did not burn. It has had a hefty work out in many countries in the last 12 months. To transport this new beautiful set from the Philippines will enhance the visual message to reach over a million. It will then go to Rwanda, Burundi etc. <br />  Plan B if funds are not received in time would be to send it direct to Rwanda in January. We need $1,000 plus a little for a fumigation requirement. Want to help? Send me an email if you are donating through Missions Unlimited so I know what to tell Arnold in the Philippines.<br /> <br /> Only 11 days of preparation time remain. We will attend the WANT TO HELP with other things? We still need: 500 more glasses : new reading glasses (found at the dollar store for $1. each but so helpful to those wishing to study the Bible but unable to see) and used prescription glasses, funds for Swahili Bibles, lessons, rental of facilities for preaching, dental supplies and tools like extraction forceps, nature stickers, bookmarks. If you continue to send after we are gone, we will gather these items for the other 5 countries we will serve in Africa. January 9 we return to start in Rwanda. SEND by UPS to:Larose and Jenny McCluskey, 16520 Wolfe Rd., Cheney, WA 99004 or POB 351 Cheney, WA. 99004
Thanks for your prayers and support. You cannot out give the LORD. I tried, but He is always 5 steps ahead of me.

Your fellow co-laborer in the Master's Vineyard,
Dr. Rose
