Doors Open in India

December 8, 2017 | Light Bearers

It was November of 2001—November 5 to be exact. Sixteen years ago!

That was the last time and the only other time that Light Bearers managed to get a container of gospel literature into India. Now God has again prevailed, this time through a group of super committed believers who went beyond the call of duty to make it happen. One man left his work and home for three weeks and basically camped out at the port of call to get this container full of gospel literature cleared. The custom officials brought up one issue after another, even complaining about the fact that we had sent them used Bibles instead of new ones. (Light Bearers ships donated Bibles that are still in good condition to supplement our literature, so please keep them coming.) Finally, after much prayer and work on the part of our brothers in India, the container was cleared and now the precious gospel literature is making its way into hearts and homes throughout this great country where …

There Is No Greater Power Than the Power of Testimony

June 2, 2017 | Light Bearers

At Riverside Farm Institute we feel that God has been working in many amazing ways, so we just must share some of them with you!

Our Education Department now runs two classes of students each year. Towards the end of each program, before the students graduate, a three-week crusade is held. Three thousand copies of Light Bearers Bible lessons are reserved for the evangelism and lifestyle students who, together, hold the crusade.

In our Evangelism Department, we currently have 47 Bible workers who are based in different provinces of Zambia. These soldiers of the cross gather as much literature as their pockets can hold. They are able to take tracts by the thousands! Various local churches and companies also use thousands of these silent messengers as they run their church and district evangelistic crusades across the country.

These soldiers of the cross gather as much literature as their pockets can hold.

In Zambia, we have various student groups which are active in evangelism. Coming from high schools and universities, the …

Light for A Dark Area

Light for a Dark Area

November 30, 2015 | Light Bearers

Oh, how sweet it was when the barge finally arrived bearing the precious Bible lessons from Light Bearers Ministry! It had been a long journey! Several months before, the container packed with Bible studies in French, Lingala and Swahili had left Jasper, Oregon. After crossing the ocean to Matadi port, the container had to be trucked 220 miles around unnavigable parts of the Congo River. Then, after unloading the Lingala Bible studies in Kinshasa, 600 more miles by barge were needed to reach Kisangani, the home of Congo Frontline Missions.

Congo Frontline Missions (CFM) is a supporting ministry started by Keith Mosier in 2008. It is located near Kisangani, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), a city of about one million in the heart of the Congo River Basin. This area is both unreached and remote, and today, CFM has the only foreign mission staff families within 300 miles. CFM’s focus has been to provide evangelism training for church planters at its training facility. In addition, CFM has a dental clinic, …

Bestseller | The Clifford Goldstein Story

July 4, 2014 | Light Bearers

Clifford Goldstein didn’t believe in much, but one thing he did believe in was Truth. He just didn’t know what it was or where to find it. As the fiery writer traveled Europe and Israel in search of his novel’s soul, his quest for meaning of life continued, leading him to a different kind of altar. Little did he know that one dark night in the summer of 1979, his search would end with a decision that would change his life forever.

China Light: Leprosy Ministry

China Light: Leprosy Ministry

February 1, 2014 | Light Bearers

As a student of the ARISE program, I was blessed with a rich experience of meaningful Bible studies, priceless interactions with classmates, staff, and community, and most importantly, a clearer understanding of the beauty of God’s true character. “It is the darkness of misapprehension of God that is enshrouding the world. Men are losing their knowledge of His character. It has been misunderstood and misinterpreted” (Christ’s Object Lessons, p. 415). As I reflect on the cornerstone text that ARISE is founded on (Isaiah 60:1,2) and references that I’ve come across over and over in the Spirit of Prophecy regarding “Light Bearers,” I am thankful to God for this ministry partnership that reveals the true character of God lived out in the day-to-day lives of godly, loving, growing disciples.

One prime example is David and Ty co-preaching a sermon. I had never heard of, nor had seen, such a thing done before! Imagine two well-known preachers sharing the stage, respectfully taking turns speaking, and even more respectfully interrupting the other, with the …

David Asscherick's Relocation to Australia

Regarding: David Asscherick’s Relocation to Australia

November 21, 2013 | Light Bearers

In 2013, Light Bearers launched ARISE Australia in partnership with the North New South Wales Conference (NNSW) and the Kingscliff Seventh-day Adventist Church . The first program was a glowing success and 24 enthusiastic students graduated on May 10th. This superb start opened the door for a deepening of the partnership between Light Bearers, the NNSW Conference, and the Kingscliff Church.

While David is relocating to Australia to facilitate this opportunity, his role with Light Bearers will not change.

To strategically facilitate this partnership David has accepted the call to be the senior pastor of the Kingscliff Church. He will occupy this position while continuing in his current role with Light Bearers as a speaker, writer, and instructor for our ARISE programs. David will continue to teach the same classes he has taught for Light Bearers at our ARISE programs in the US, speak at our annual convocation , and continue with our new Table Talk television series, among other projects. In other words, while David is relocating to Australia to facilitate this opportunity, his role with Light Bearers will not change.

We are very …
