To the Body of Christ,
Greetings! Grace be to you and peace from God, our Father, and from Jesus Christ, our Lord!
For those who may not yet know who we are, may we introduce ourselves? We are Michael and Desire’e Bayles. We are the directors of Mountain Ministries Women’s Program, a year-long, residential, discipleship program helping women and children grow a strong relationship with Jesus and find deliverance from the bondage of addictions. This ministry is located in Rainier, Oregon, and at any given time we may be responsible for as many as 50 women and children. We believe that the only way to reach true freedom from these types of bondages is through immersion in the Word of God and prayer.
We have been given a tremendous opportunity to be a part of that we believe Holy Spirit has confirmed in us. We have been invited to the Philippines to teach and train local pastors. Shiloh Christian Fellowship in Rainier, Oregon, has asked us if we will join their mission trip and speak to the leadership of the local churches. What a Divine privilege, and we believe a Divine call on our lives for such a time as this.
We believe that our God-given objective in going to the Philippines is to strengthen the existing clergy and teach new pastors who are being sent out to establish new churches. We believe that our giftings of teaching and experience in dealing with people in bondage and dealing with strongholds of the enemy are of great value for these ministers of God, They are people who could not normally afford to attend a Bible college or seminary due to their impoverished situation. We will be able to provide for them, education in seminar format, to help them to not only grow their personal lives in Christ, but translate it to establishing and growing churches and caring for the lives God places under their care, as well. This is a great opportunity for multiplication of the Kingdom of God in the Philippines.
While we have been invited to go with Shiloh’s group we are still responsible for our own expenses. God has already moved tremendous mountains in order to make this trip possible for us, however, we are still faced with some financial obstacles that need to be dealt with. We strongly believe that since God has called us it is His responsibility to make the way and bring in the provisions. As our financial deadline draws very close (our trip is scheduled for January 10-25, 2020) we believe that Holy Spirit has instructed us to reach out and ask for support. Scripture is very plain in saying that we “have not because we ask not,” and we believe that it would be wrong to deny the Body of Christ the opportunity to sow into God’s work and in so doing deny them of a blessing. Our remaining need at this time is $3,000.00. We would appreciate any support you can provide. Please help us reach this nation. Please feel free to contact us by phone or e-mail should you have any further questions.
If you are unable to help financially at this time, we greatly covet your prayers over this matter and also for safety and success of this mission for the Glory of God, the Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ.
We thank you for your generosity and prayers,
Michael & Desire’e Bayles
