IN THE BEGINNING........
A BIBLE....TWO MEN....AND A PLAN
THIS IS ABOUT A BIBLE.....2 MEN OF GOD - NEW FRIENDS - WHOSE PATHS WERE PUT TOGETHER BY GOD TO
CARRY OUT HIS MANDATE TO THEM TO SPREAD HIS MESSAGE AROUND THE WORLD. So many people in the world
had no church or alternatives to hear the Word of God and His Promises due to illness, or political
The men? Gene Newsom and Pastor Bob Joyce. It was agreed that Gene Newsom would start a facebook
page for the Ministry, called Household of Faith Ministries (August 15, 2016); it would be
nondenominational, and all would be welcome to hear Pastor Bob's wonderful sermons and music and members
could join and fellowship, and request intercessory prayers for their needs.
MEMBERS! HOW TO GET MEMBERS? It started with 3. Gene and Annette worked day and night to bring
in members. Suddenly God gave Gene an idea. A Bible! Everyone who became a member and wanted to
participate, would be given a number beside their name and at a certain time, Pastor Bob would have
the numbers in a basket and draw out a number. That person would receive this beautiful Bible.
The day finally arrived on October 30, 2016. In the video below, you will see Pastor Bob having
someone at church select the winning number, he checked the number with a name, and Oscar Idachi Jackait
was the winner of the new Bible - and he lived in Africa! HHFM was already reaching
around the world! God's plan was working!
A website was developed for those who were not on facebook. You will love the MINISTRY website,
Household of Faith Ministries, https://www.householdoffaithministries.org/
The numbers mushroomed until now we have over 16,000 members.
While Gene went home to be with the Lord on 6/28/18, but we can't stop now - the goal was to reach over
100,000 members for Pastor Bob's Minstry for God. There are now many well grounded,
competent, committed Christians working on this site. Patti Allen Helton has been totally committed to holding up this site after Gene's leaving, in addition to expanding her own ministry, as well as other moderators (SUSAN HAMMONS, MICHAEL PAWSON, etc) committed to keeping the Ministry page developing God's Plan.
If each current member just added two friends to the membership, we would very quickly have 50,000
members. Just think how fast God's Word could spread around the world!
THAT'S THE PLAN, ISN'T IT? Let's turn it up! Remember the winning number 157? Check further, google
Luke 157 or Luke 1:57. It talks about (barren) Elizabeth - cousin of Virgin Mary - carrying a child
who would be called John the Baptist. When his ministry was begun, he foretold "THERE IS ONE COMING
WHO IS GREATER THAN ME....". HE BAPTIZED JESUS and SO IT BEGAN...
THIS IS THE ASSIGNMENT GOD GAVE TO PASTOR BOB JOYCE AND GENE NEWSOM TO USE THE INTERNET TO SPREAD
THE WORD OF GOD. LET'S ALL WORK TO MAKE THIS THE LARGEST INTERNET CONGREGATION IN THE WORLD! STAND UP
FOR GOD AND BE A PRAYER WARRIOR! ADD 2 or MORE FRIENDS AND GET GOD'S WORD OUT!
Then check out John 157 - or 1 John 5:7:
