Of interest is the following.


1. The following new countries joined the Group. Bangladesh, Brazil, Peru. Solomon Islands.

2. Losses totalled 10 in numbers. We hope and pray that these dear souls will return to the Group and grow in the love of Jesus and accept a more complete understanding of SSA.

3. An incredible growth of 96 members is surely all praise to Almighty God. The interesting part of growth comes from

A 4 new countries bringing 25 new members.

B Incredible growth in Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. These countries are sadly rampant with “rent boys”. Slowly this is being exposed as unhealthy for all concerned.

4 Iran although sadly adverse to SSA, we note a healthy increase by 3 which is amazing given the pressure this country remains under.

The on-line anonymity seems to be helping members by holding firm to their confidences and yet at the same time, opening up to much

Christian understanding and acceptance is increasing with members and a number have surrendered their hearts to Jesus as a result.

With your permission Robert I would like to appoint 6 OVA members who are well verses in SSA and are trusted by the Assembly in all ways to assist in looking after close on 500 SSA members. I should mention that these members of OVA are qualified to undertake the difficulty of this task. This will be of no value to OVA other than in hearing the cries and needs of these poor souls and the offer of guidance. Please advise me Robert.

May almighty God bless you all with love and blessings.

Dear Brethren,

I have been asked to write a short understanding of JASON.

I have personally met JASON and his mother. I know only too well the circumstances behind JASON’s history. Jason was a 17 year old young man who was tormented at his high school because he was suspected of being gay. The suspicion was based on the fact that at 16 years of age he did not have a girlfriend. The interesting point here is that JASON was actually gay but, not a practising homosexual. He was tormented psychologically, emotionally, and beaten without mercy coupled with the most humiliating physical abuse. Pastor Mike, was the man who dealt mainly with JASON. He ministered countless hours to this young man, he dressed wounds that had been inflicted upon JASON. Pastor Les, and myself were involved in a lesser way with JASON. However, knowing JASON as I did I can state clearly that regardless of his young life he achieved much, he touched many lives, and he achieved considerably more in his death then most Christians will ever achieve.

Meeting JASON,s mother I could understand the Christian values that JASON stood firmly on. Admittedly Pastor Mike, Pastor Les, and myself knew nothing in regards to JASON,s father. I can now inform you that I have met his father and have had many conversations with him to the extent that he surrendered his heart to Almighty God and it has been my privilege to have baptised him and given him the right hand of fellowship.

I did not ask him many questions about his marriage with JASON,s mother, because I did not consider that that was at all relevant at this point in time. I only wanted to meet the father and see where he stood on Christian principles. He was loosely associated with Christianity but this became more intense when I explained to him that his son although he took his own life was in many ways a martyr to the church and an amazing influence on a number of people with certain difficulties. The father was most unsympathetic toward homosexuality. However, when I explained that JASON was a homosexual but not a practising one judgementalism was in every way unacceptable critical and sinful. The father asked me to explain why people are homosexuals. I told him that I could not answer that question because I simply do not have an answer to that question. I do not know why people are as they are. My position as a minister of the Gospel is to support love and pray without ceasing for all people regardless of who or what they are, or for that matter what they have done. I explained further that I have ministered in many churches including the offending church that expelled JASON because they were informed that he was homosexual. Is it any wonder why a 17-year-old young man struggled in much pain to be expelled from a Christian church that lacked in every way the principles of Christianity. I agreed with Brother Mike that blood of JASON will be firmly on their hands until they repented of their sins. This did not take place until about two weeks ago when I preached in that church the message of JASON and how his life and death has been rewarded by people struggling to understand same sex attraction. At the end of the meeting I was able to have an altar call and to my extreme pleasure the majority of church members came forward and confessed their sins to Almighty God concerning the harshness, lack of understanding, lack of love toward JASON, and their lack of proving that they are indeed saved by Almighty God. I witnessed considerable joy after that meeting and over she had lunch I was asked numerous questions in regards to JASON MINISTRY. If I recall correctly I arrived home after a morning service about 5:30 PM. I was also able to ask permission from the Pastor of that church if on the following Sunday morning service I could baptise into fellowship JASON,s father. The father is now a member of the church who contributed in a big way to the death of JASON.

I am excited because I have witnessed miracles. The miracle of meeting JASON,s father, the miracle of so many members of a critical church surrendering their hearts again to Almighty God after they repented of what they had done to JASON, the miracle of baptising JASON,s father.

Life can be difficult but we must face reality that regardless of how difficult life is there are people who will openly laugh asked regardless of cost, and help us back onto our feet. But there are also people who care not, and will openly put more barricades in our ways of difficulties. Our duty as Christians is firstly to judge not, to not all grudges, but to pray openly and constantly pray firstly to those who are blessings from Almighty God. Our duty continues to pray and are left those that lack Christian principles and continue to argue against the love that Jesus showed us quite clearly on the cross at Calvary. That is our duty to pray without ceasing regardless of who the person may be, love is easy when we truly love Almighty God, when we truly understand what it is to kneel at the foot of the cross and surrendered daily to Almighty God and ask daily for sustenance in difficult times and to reach out to others regardless of who they are and share the love of Jesus with them. That is our duty, and if we fail in that basic duty on the day of judgement I believe that Jesus will not be impressed with such a failure.

Brethren, I pray daily for you all that you will continue to reach out regardless of cost, but please understand the purpose of the Jason Foundation. Now that you know briefly why Jason ministries have progressed to the extent that they have then the simplicity of understanding the Jason Foundation is a must. I encourage you all to participate more fully, to share your ministry, and your hopes for what the Jason Foundation could possibly achieve to help people in difficulty.

May the Lord bless you all as just reward for your efforts.

Love and blessings.

Archbishop Paul

Brothers,

as you might know, Jason International is the brother ministry of Homosexuals Anonymous. It is named after a young man who was a member of HA in New Zealand and killed himself due to horrific torture and abuse by peers and church members. His pastors remained in contact with us and Jason's mom. She wrote us a letter shortly before her death and was in awe of the good the Lord brought out of her son's death.

Bishop Paul Andrews now managed to trace back Jason's father who did not know of the tragic reasons for his son's death. They had a long conversation. No go figure: His father has same-sex attractions as well! He gave his life to Jesus and now wants to join "his son's group".

More will follow.

Please pray for Jason's father and Bishop Paul.

Thanks.

God bless,

Robert

Of interest is the following:

 

Increase All countries with the exception of the following.

 

No change Nigeria, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Uganda

 

Loss American Samoa, Fiji, Kenya, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea , United Kingdom.

 

This represents an increase of 52since November 2016 Online Group members.

 

Sadly we lost 13 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 and this is represented in their figures.

 

Philippines, Singapore 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 sadly displays an open rejection to SSA. which is punishable by execution. However, almighty God is opening a door for that country to share their concerns and frustrations with SSA. Covert underground church related activity has increased the number of anonymous members to 19 which is an increase 04 members since November 2016.

 

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. One of the joys is that so many have returned to church commitment and are growing even stronger in the daily and spiritual walks.

 

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.

 

I now have assistance that is making this task somewhat lighter on myself. Thank you Jesus.

 

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.

Homosexuals Anonymous Press Release on Donald Trump

Posted on November 14, 2016 at 3:50 PM

Homosexuals Anonymous congratulate the new United States of America's Administration to be lead by President-Elect Donald Trump and Vice President-Elect Michael Pence.

 

It was President-Elect Trump who spoke clearly, "I will do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens." This is in itself a very positive statement and a beacon of hope from the new President-Elect that all LGBTQ citizens might now be able to hold onto and see as a positive and pro-active change in what has been for many years something that has been denied to all who stand firm for gender selection of their own choice.

 

President-Elect Trump, we congratulate you on your election to govern the United States of America. We trust that this challenge will be one that will set the citizens of America on to a new path of hope and prosperity.

Orlando

Posted on June 14, 2016 at 2:15 PM

Sad to see how many people abuse of the drama in Orlando to push their own agenda. While faking emotions, all they seem to have in mind is what else they can wring out of that situation. Shame on you and shame on those who buy that obvious agenda!

Dear Pope Francis,

Posted on April 11, 2016 at 2:05 PM

Dear Pope Francis,

 

I respect, honor and love you as the first among the bishops, as the bishop of Rome, as the Pope.

 

Yet I am saddened to see which way you lead the Church - or better: fail to lead the Church.

 

In crucial and troubled times, when the whole Church - and with her the whole world! - looked up to the successor of Peter to stand up like Peter once did and give the Church clarity and guidance, you fail. You are supposed to steer the ship in difficult times, but you refuse to take over.

 

Reading AMORIS LAETITIA, I wonder what you had in mind when you wrote something like that.

 

All the ifs and buts in unclear situations of moral theology are nothing new. Each person, each act and each sin must be seen in its full context - with all circumstances in order to be able to give a solid judgement. So confusing us with many details and exceptions of exceptions does not really help. I thought my headache was getting a headache when I read that. Maybe I was hoping that you of all would write something a simple man or woman can understand as well. Maybe next time.

 

We also know that it is not up to us to condemn. God is the final judge. However, God did not tell us for nothing that loving one another also includes exhorting one another and bringing one another back on the right track.

 

I spent many years in the gay scene until the Lord set me free by showing me the way to a Christian organization named "Homosexuals Anonymous" (www.homosexuals-anonymous.com). Praise the Lord - I finally found freedom and purpose in my life following Jesus Christ.

 

What I have always appreciated about the Catholic Church was its clarity, especially when it comes to family issues. She stood strong when others failed.

 

As someone who had been on the other side of life, who had fully embraced sin I can only tell you that you do not help people who face difficult situations at all by letting them know that maybe somehow under some circumstances things might be different and they could still come to the table of the Lord. With all due respect, Holy Father, that is utter heresy.

 

You might think that somebody who lives a live apart from the Church (be it in the gay scene or in a relationship whatsoever outside of marriage, as a remarried person or whatever) cannot sin all the time and the circumstances might be so special that he could come to a judgment that allows him to accept the "healing power" of the Eurcharist and that everything else would be "cold". You are so wrong, Holy Father. From my own experience I can only tell you that yes, it is possible to live in a state of constant sin and true love means loving someone enough to tell him the truth. No backdoor, no ifs, no buts. To think that some just don't make it and we need to back down from our high moral standards is a slap in the face of every true believer and finally of Jesus Himself.

 

Yes, EVERYONE can make it. God promised us that there is no temptation that cannot be overcome and that He would finish what He promised us.

 

I only found freedom because some people told me about the true love of God and walked with me all the way until I was there.

 

Everything else is not only poor theology, it is more than dangerous: it is irresponsible and not worthy of the successor of Peter.

 

I call on you and I call on all good Christians to stand up, defend the Christian faith as proclaimed in the Holy Scriptures and finally by the living Word Jesus Himself. Do not back down! Do not lower our believes! Tell people the truth, but also help them to find that truth and to meet that goal God promised each one of us!

 

In times when Church leaders fail, God sometimes calls simple people to stand up for Him, to live out the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.

 

Simple people like Peter once was.

 

God bless,
