December 29th, 2014 to January 5th, 2015 Ralph will be ministering for the first time in the city of Sacramento, California. He has been invited to minister over the New Year's holiday celebrations at Melchizedek Church in that city. This is a good size church ministering to both English and Russian speaking members.
Ralph prophesied over a young man a little over 2 years ago while in a church in Moscow, Russia. That word powerfully changed a young man's life. He is now married and living in Sacramento and one of the ministers at the church there. So, he connected Ralph with the senior leader and thus the invitation was issues.
Please pray for Ralph as he travels and ministers for the first time in this northern California city and to Melchizedek Church.
While in Russia recently Ralph met with an old friend whom he first met and ministered with in Kazakhstan. Pastor Igor Shvedov moved back to his native Russia a little over two years ago. The program he moved back under dictated where he must locate his family. For a little over two years he worked and supported his family while actively helping out in a local church plant. Then, when the government requirements were met he was free to move to where God had told him to plant a church.
Pastor Igor and his family are now living in the city of Kazan, Russia and are beginning to pray and prepare to plant the church God has asked him to raise up. His plans include a discipleship school for young people to open in the fall. He has asked Ralph Howe Ministries to be actively involved in the preparation of courses and materials as well as in the overall planning of the school.
Ralph will be visiting the city of Kazan in the fall of 2015 to begin teaching. All other planning will be done via internet and with Pastor Igor coming to other locations in Russia where Ralph will be ministering between now and the start of the school in October, 2015.
Ralph has been asked to be one of the teachers at a new school of ministry being opened by The Upper Room in Cardington, Ohio. Launch Point is for all those who are serious about being a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ and are desiring to be a part what God is doing in the nations today.
A missional discipleship school where students attend classes on several nights a week and receive top quality teachings from the local church leaders and others ‘visiting teachers’ as they are available. They then apply what they are learning during the next week so as to be equipped and trained for ministry here and overseas.
Ralph first teaching sessions will be in early February, 2015.
Ralph has recently returned from a 16 day apostolic trip into the nation of Russia. He left Canada on the 15th of October and returning late on the 31st. Russia is a wonderful country where many are hearing the Gospel and becoming believers. During his time there he ministered in four different cities in several regions of this very large nation.
He flew into Moscow which is a city of 20 million people and literally has four very large international airports. He ministered for three full days in the city of Moscow in Bethel Church - a very active and alive church planted by Armenians living in the city. Of course, they welcome everyone regardless of their nationality but there is a sizeable group of young Armenians in this growing, dynamic church. Ralph also spent a day in a company owned by an Armenia Christian. (Picture: The Kremlin and Red Square)
Our first annual "International School of Apostles and Prophets" will be held in Butler, Ohio (an hour from Ohio's capital city of Columbus). A joint project of Ralph Howe Ministries and Apostle Bill Lewis, the school will be a 10 day event held from October 2nd to the 12, 2015. The school will be using the facilities of The River of Life Church.
With students and their mentors already planning to attend - from Madagascar, Armenia, Russia, Canada, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, United States, and Uzbekistan it is promising to be a very powerful equipping school where teachings and practical hands-on experience come together to train and equip young apostles and prophets in areas they will need to be proficient and effective if they are to fulfil God's call upon their lives.
As well, it is the hope of those involved in the planning that the International School will allow many young people to begin networking with others who share a similar call from God so that there can be the beginning of a worldwide networking of apostles and prophets as the Kingdom moves forward planting the Gospel of the Kingdom where it has never been preached.
Watch for more details and information on how you can become involved in this Kingdom project coming soon...
This building is the future home of a school for apostles and prophets who are called by God into these two foundational ministries. Located in the city of Mt. Ararat, Armenia the building is currently undergoing major renovations. Our current project is to replace all the windows and doors getting it winterized so that work can continue in the winter season on the interior.
Ralph Howe Ministries is actively involved in this project and has been since it was first discussed in the spring of 2013. Ralph is working with Pastor Samvel Kharatyan who is also an apostle-in-training and who is heading up this project. Ralph along with Pastor Bill Lewis of Ohio are working on the courses that will need to be taught. Once the courses have been decided on then the work of writing the material will begin. Ralph and Bill will be joined by others who have expressed an interest in this project (from France, Russia, United States and Africa) in the process of writing the content of some of the courses that will need to be taught. We are hoping to have our first student body actively involved in their studies and being equipped for their ministries by the fall of 2015.
Ralph will be in Mt. Ararat in March of 2015 to work alongside Pastor Samvel for a week as the project continues to be defined and outlined.
Your prayers and financial support fr this project would be greatly appreciated.
