The Mission to Colombia June 21st -July 3rd 2017

Early in April 2017 Pastor Alvaros Berrios of Nicaragua wrote to us and invited us to join him in Colombia South America at a conference of Youth and Youth Mission Trainers. This was scheduled for June 2017. I had been friends with Pastor Alvaros of Nicaragua for several years and had been planning to minister for him in Nicaragua at a Conference on Unity and the Bride but so far had not been able to do so. This was an opportunity to move into South America which was not to be missed.

Although the event was not particularly about the Bride we felt sure the Lord wanted Call2Come to take part and then see what connections He would build for us for the future in S America. Pastor Henry Lopez who directed this Youth Missionary Training school in Colombia had for years been successfully following a vision to take disadvantaged and troublesome youth into his and his wife’s care and provide for them a sound Christian Education and Missionary Training. He has seen the Lord save them and transform them and build them into an army of dedicated Youth Missionaries. Call2Come was blessed to be a part of his conference and of course a joy to work close with Alvaros Berrios.

Howard was given a young man of God Kenneth Mendivelso Tijo to translate and inerpret for him.This was of Gods doing.

Dr Howard and Kenneth became very close friends and stayed together as ‘Jonathan and David’ for the rest of the Mission. Kenneth is now being prepared as a young prophetic apostolic leaders in Call2Come. He has a passionate desire to raise the Youth as an army of Prophetic leaders who know their Bridal identity, mandate and anointing.

There were Christian Leaders from many South American nations ….Uruguay, Paraquay, Argentina, Venezuela, were also present. In addition there were about 80 youth from Colombia who just loved to worship.

Alvaros contribution at the conference was to encourage everyone to reach for a deeper experience of Christian Unity and warn those attending of the judgement of God coming upon the corruption and self seeking agendas within the Church today.

Howard’s mandate was to share about our End Time Bridal identity and how everything is all centred around Jesus deep desire to awaken His Bride to whom she is and to see her get prepared for the Wedding of the Lamb that He is returning to earth to take Her to. He showed how all  missionary activity and evangelistic outreach was to be seen in this context because reaching the lost for Christ is to offer them Salvation and so offer them inclusion in His greatest of all creation….His precious Bride.

It was so good to be together for these days of teaching and many both young and old received these new challenging revelations with joy. There was much love and humility around and great unity and grace. At one point a dear brother invited us all to sit and allow him to wash each of our feet.

It was such a moving experience

Howard was asked to pray and minister the Holy Spirit to each person and the Lord moved powerfully amongst us.

The Holy Spirit baptised many in power and fire

Conclusion and climax: The Lord takes us by surprise

Normally at the end of a conference we plan to have a plenary or a ‘Where do we go from here?’ session. This time the Lord Himself orchestrated it and took us  by surprise. I was sitting in the circle of the leaders from the many South American nations represented at the conference and I heard to my delight the chairperson declare that he felt strongly that the message of the Bride was the ‘now’ message for the Church today and that this was the Time and Season for South America to receive and embrace this message. More than that, he suggested that a conference declaration be written and signed by everyone stating that belief and declaring their intention and their commitment to spread that message throughout the S American Continent. This was agreed, the declaration was written and signed by all present.

We now need to discuss how that is effectively to be done and we at Call2Come have offered to 1) make available our teachings to each of the leaders or group of leaders, with the full script in Spanish and Portuguese and 2) each accompanied with a Power Point Presentations. 3) to link them up to our website and the Live Streaming Training programme on the website, beginning in January 2018. See www.call2come.org

This is also available in a Live or recorded version on the website or on Facebook and WhatsApp Social Media platforms.

We are also willing to visit each nation and share what God has revealed to us about His eternal purpose and the Bride of Christ.

We felt that this ministry trip had certainly achieved its goal and returned to the UK very satisfied.

About the author: Dr Howard Barnes

Howard Barnes was born in England in 1944 to Salvation Army pastor parents. After secondary education he went to university and studied Theology and subsequently become a Secondary School teacher and served in several London schools as the Head of Divinity. During these years he also was a youth leader and then served as a pastor of a local church in Cornwall, England. In 2003 he retired from teaching, after 37 years’ service, to take up a position as director of an evangelistic ministry called Harvest for Christ but in 2008 he became Co-director of Time Out Mission International and more recently director of The Body and the Bride Network Ministry International (UK). These last two ministries which he co-directed with his close friend and ministry colleague, Michael Pike (Apostle), were deeply passionate about two things. 1) to see the worldwide Church discover the meaning of real unity and so fulfill the prayer of Jesus in Jn 17 v 21 and 23 ….“that they may be One even as we are One” and 2) to understand and embrace its end-time identity as the precious Bride of Christ and to prepare her for the coming Bridegroom King. These experiences have paved the way for the creation of this new ministry called The Call2Come which, while still holding to these emphasis, calls the Church to prepare Herself as His precious Bride and so position Herself to cry the prayer that only the Bride can¬ pray. It is only the “Spirit and the Bride” that can cry Come. Howard has received two honorary doctorates in recognition of his mission and reconciliation/peace work in over 70 nations around the world. He is also an official representative for Foundations for Biblical Farming (FFF) which comes out of Zimbabwe, Africa and for the World Prayer Assembly (WPA). He is a regular speaker at international church conferences and operates under an apostolic mantel. He has been married to Tricia for 50 years who was herself a music teacher, and they have two lovely married children and four beautiful grandchildren. He is both a musician and a gifted artist.
