It Was 20 Years Ago Today...

tims blogI went to church expecting business as usual. I remained clueless even after Nelly insisted that she wanted to teach the morning lesson (something rarer than proverbial hen's teeth). When I saw our attendance had doubled, I figured they'd come to hear about the trip to Africa. I did think it strange when I saw TWO boxes of fresh donuts by the coffeepot, but even that went over my head. It was only after the songservice when I turned the meeting over to Nelly that she announced that we were celebrating the 20th anniversary of Workers Together With Him. With cake!


tims blogSeveral testimonials had been collected and they were read for everyone to hear. Even this old Tin Man was touched beyond measure. Thanks to all of you who participated and made this a very special day for me!
I hope you enjoy these:


This lovely poem comes from Cyndi Diamond, in London, England:

Happy 20th Anniversary WTWH
Twenty years of delivering God's Word throughout the world....

Reaching those people far and near,
Some with love, some with emotional tears,
Touching hearts and reaching souls,
Introducing them to the Lord is always the goal.

Our Lord Jesus said be fisherman of men,
So up jumped Tim and a list of friends,
Took planes, trains and automobiles,
Travelled around the world in all styles.

With such dedication to the work of the Lord,
The importance of it all, taken on board,
For you and the family it is not always easy,
But you soldier on with the Lord's blessing freely.

The achievements made, the lives you touched,
The things done over the years means so much,
To individuals, to some and to many,
Given them a chance, a choice to get ready.

The Lord will call the obedient ones,
The ones that walked and talked with the Lord becomes,
The saved, the raised who will have eternal life,
Until then we live in hope and even strife.

To serve the Lord well, our Majesty,
Is highly treasured and leaves a legacy,
Tim is so humble I hope he understands,
His achievements done are so grand.

Congratulations you led the way,
A great example in so many ways,
May God bless you, your family and friends,
All our love and God's blessings we send.

Love to all our brothers and sisters in Christ
Cyndi Diamond

From Daniel and Tresa Bucher,
Wattwil, Switzerland:

Tim you visited us in Sydney Australia in 1998 and that’s when you stayed in our house for a few days and then stayed in the Wesley mission lodge. You blessed us with your presence with your knowledge of God’s word and love. You even left a day later as you were supposed to do just I’m sure to bless us. I’m especially thankful that you appreciated my sense of humour. Natasha is blessed to have the only video tape of her Birthday ever made. Thank you for all the times we spend time and laughter together. I thank God that he continues to bless you and your family and that your books may be read (especially by my husband… you know what I mean.) and appreciated all over the world.
Congratulations on the 20th anniversary.
God bless you mightily.

I know my friend Tim and I especially say Friend, for a little bit more than 20 Years. We met in a Hotel in Tucson during a class I took which was hosted by BG and ET Leonard Ministry. I was sharing my Room with a nice looking married Lady which was taking the Class on Gifts of the Spirit. I think the lovely Sister which was the Host of the Class, was not impressed that 2 different married Adults where sharing a Room together and decided that I should share the room with, at that time, a dark haired small black moustache wearing Pastor. Believe me it is a different sight when you wake up in the Morning.
Being both quiet people we tried to start conversations and as I look back it was a similar conversations which you see in today’s reality TV shows like “First Date” etc.
But somehow we got on together from the very first time. Over the Years I have seen Tim growing in his love to our Lord and he has always been an Example and Mentor to me how the relationships with God should be. What is always fascinating to me is that one moment he has his funny sense of Humour but when he stands at the Podium his whole Heart and Mind is fully glorifying God.
I had the privilege to visit Gods people in many different areas in the world and always was very honoured, that Tim would take a person like me, for so important travels. To me Tim shows all the Time that God is  real and taking care of his beloved one, that God is always there when the doubts and challenges start to infiltrate once mind. And God is that Father which protects his Children in difficult Situations.
I thank you Tim for that courage which you took 20 Years ago to continue spreading the Love and Message which our Almighty God and our King of Kings Jesus Christ wants us to hear. I thank you for being not only my Mentor but also a truly good Friend.
My Daughters, my Wife and myself are very honoured to be very good friend with your lovely Family and I know that your  fantastic wife and children always been a strong Backbone during your missions.
I am excited to see what the next 20 Years will have in store for you, but as far as I see it "You are running that good Race." Thank you very much and enjoy the celebration with your fantastic Members of the Church. Our Heart and Prayers are with you.
Your Friend,

From Jay and Jerelyn Pearson
Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA:  

Jay and I met you and Nelly before WTWH officially began. But hindsight reveals that the wheels had already started moving in that direction.
We had heard of a class by B. G. Leonard in Brownsville, Texas. Three of our friends had attended it and spoke very highly of it encouraging us to go. As it worked out, the class came to us at Evan and Nancy's home where we first met y'all and heard you teach the Sunday sermon.
Throughout that class your attention and dedication to the elderly Bro. Leonard was evident, even to the point of physically supporting him so he could stand throughout a long session of individual prophesies.
Early in your WTWH ministry you returned to teach a class at Hemmingbough. At the end of one of the sessions, you asked me to meet with you and Crystal to help her with the gift of speaking in tongues. I wasn't expecting that because of all the people these, I was probably the least experienced. Not long before, Deborah had helped me in the same way. So I was especially blessed and encouraged to be a part of such a special moment.
I can't leave out the experience of traveling with you and Jay to Nairobi. Observing the two of you Working Together ministering to the Bible College students was heart warming and eye opening. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to present a writing class to the teachers at the orphanage. Their eagerness and enthusiasm to participate actively in the lessons was a true blessing. I learned so much from them as they witnessed throught hadship and obstacles their faithfulness to the Lord.
Thank for giving me these opportunities to minister.
Through the years you have authored many books. I have greatly benefitted from your teaching of the content as you developed your work in progress. I always looked forward to reading the finished product. Thanks for allowing me to preview several of your publications as one of your proofreaders, giving me the opportunity not only to be of help but also the privilege to read an advanced copy.
You always encouraged Jay and I to share messages during church, and even to publish some of our teachings. Thanks for nudging up to keep moving in that direction when we tended to stall out, and taking the time to prepare our works for publication.
We've shared so many experiences through the years for which I'm truly grateful.
I thank the Lord for bringing you and your family into our lives and encouraging us to be WORKERS TOGETHER WITH HIM.


One Soldier Speaks

One thing my brother in Christ, Tim Sullivan has been to me is a friend. He has corrected me at times over the years and he has encouraged me along the way. Thank God he has encouraged me more than corrected. Not because I didn’t need more, but he exercised mercy I’m sure. Most of my correction from Tim has been through watching his walk with the Lord and his ministering to others here and on many of the foreign missions I attended with him. He treats every mission like it will be his last opportunity to give his audience the Word they can live by. That door may not be open again. It’s his commitment to the Lord that he carries and takes it very seriously. He has taught me how to be more effective in ministering. How to prepare a lesson. He has been there for my family in good times and bad. He has encouraged me to follow my desires in music and songwriting. I’ve watched him encourage many others also in Word and deed. He has my back and won’t hold his peace if I need council. That’s why I call Tim Sullivan a friend. I have learned more by being next to him than he knows. The Lord said it best in His Word.
Proverbs 27:17:
Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
Thank you, Tim Sullivan and happy 20th Anniversary of WTWH. May the Lord grant you to continue in His love until you finish your course and reach the joy set before you.

Founder Gospel Extension Ministries – GEM in Uganda
Nyanama, Uganda

I came in contact with Workers Together With Him in 2003, in a small town on the border of Tanzania and Malawi. I took me more than 3days from Uganda. It is one of those trips you can say were divinely orchestrated because none of us knew that we would be meeting. There were a lot of things that went on during this trip.
The following year I invited Tim and a team from Workers Together with Him and our relationship kept growing. I had the privilege of Tim doing my wedding and ordaining me in 2007.
Through my contact with this ministry it helped me to become a better minister especially how Tim’s seminars are biblically based. Also being part of WTWH is fun, we have had lots of fun years. For those close to Tim they know how humorous he is.
I want to thank all that have been part of this vision for all these years and keep it going, because as the Bible says, where there is no vision people perish (Proverbs 29:18). I also believe where there are no people the vision perishes.
May God bless you.
Happy 20th Anniversary Workers Together With Him.

From Alois and Regina Eggmann

20 years of WTWH!!

Dear Tim, we congratulate you wholeheartedly on these two wonderful decades since you entered your own ministry.
It was and is a blessing for us to share and experience how so many people have thereby accepted Christ as Lord and found their relationship to the Heavenly Father and to His Son Jesus Christ.
Also in our life, your work together with Him has brought about great things. In our quest to apply all nine gifts of the Spirit in our lives, God sent us to Greece. As we had registered too late, "the Greeks" could not find any other accommodation for us than together with Reverend Tim Sullivan in a rented apartment. Never again will we forget our first encounter with you, Tim. 14 days in this small, hot and noisy city apartment, in the middle of the large city Thessaloniki! Regina's first impression of you: "Oh, it looks like I see Jesus!" Your morning guitar playing, in the room next door, always inspired us when we woke up and compensated for many things. And thanks to your walk with God, even our marriage was saved, which at that time was a pile of broken glass. Also the salt shaker, which you gave Regina as a farewell present, stood in our kitchen until about 2 years ago and was refilled again and again. "ye are the salt of the earth"... We have become friends.
This all happened just before you took up your own ministry and started WTWH.
Many other encounters followed, for example in Vienna, in Kaub (Germany) in October 1999, where you presented your "Weapons of our Warfare" class for the first time in Europe. In July 2000, in a mountain village in Aeschiried (Switzerland), we had the privilege to present you and your class to the Swiss for the first time. But the Swiss were in the minority. And then in May 2002 you promised us to present your class "if ye do these things" in our house. What an event! For 3 days we had 15 people in our house, which would have been impossible without Daniel Bucher as chef, who spoiled us with all kinds of delicacies. It was a great time!
And then in September 2005 again a "Weapons of our Warefare" seminar in Kappelen (Switzerland). In January 2013, in the former ICB (International Church of Berne) we learned in your class "Mapping the Psalms" how great the Book of Psalms is put together. In England we met again several times and finally got to know your Nelly.
We always followed your missions to Africa and later to Nepal with great interest and stood in prayer for success and His protection around you and your family. And I, Alois, am very happy to accompany you on your next mission to Nepal in November 2019. "If ye know these things, happy are ye if ye do them" (John 13:17).
Dear friend, dear Tim, we are looking forward to more “good news” from WTWH ... God willing, until the day of the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Philippians 1:4-6
Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,
For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;
Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.

We would love to be present at the jubilee celebration, in thoughts and with a glass of wine and some bread we will think of you here.
Much love,
Alois and Regina

From Todd Pekel,
Thessaloniki, Greece

Hello all and God bless you! Enjoy the day and each other. Would have loved to be there! The stream of time rolls on as Brother Leonard sang and twenty years of ministry is a real success. When the books are opened may you all be richly rewarded according to what is written therein. Carry on, continue to fight the good fight and congratulations. God speed,

Malachi 3:16
Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.

From Dimitris and Marjo Pelidis and Thassos Christian Fellowship,
Thassos, Greece

Dear Tim together with all the WTWH family, 
Bountiful blessings and shouts of joy on the celebration of the 20th anniversary of WTWH in the name above all names of Christ Jesus our Lord. 
As I think back on how profoundly this ministry has affected my life and service I only have feelings of great gratitude to God and to all who are have been part of it, especially to Tim. We will only find out the true worth of our ministry at the judgment seat on that glorious day when God pronounces the righteous verdict. However, if what the Bible holds in the highest esteem namely, faithfulness, integrity, humility, simplicity, clarity, consistency and genuine love, then WTWH will be greatly honoured and highly rewarded. You are definitely blessed and deeply beloved in His sight.
As for me what where do I start and where do I end speaking of all the blessings I have received over the years? I remember the time when in a scorching heatwave in Thessaloniki we had an amazing upper room experience that changed the course of our lives. The scales of our eyes fell, the chains broke, the hearts soared freely with fervent love for our Redeemer and for the brethren. We discovered with tears streaming from our eyes the great absent ONE, our first love, even our sweet Saviour Jesus. Then a few years later, on the small island of Thassos came the time when by God's grace I was ordained in ministry by brother Tim which defined my life forever and spurred me on to live for Him who died for me. Tim visited Thassos 3 times altogether and each one was loaded with blessed insight, warm fellowship and genuine friendship. What everyone came away with under his teaching was eyes enlightened, hearts full of higher appreciation of God's Word and a deep desire to walk closer to God. On a lighter note when we were turned away by the Greek Orthodox authorities to baptise believers at Philippi, I remember Tim saying in a low voice we "have been shamefully entreated in Philippi" echoing humorously the words of the apostle Paul. When he saw me on the verge of losing my temper he diffused the tension saying "It's too hot to be angry." It was another terribly hot day in Greece which nevertheless was crowned with glory! We were eventually baptised in the sea and got wonderfully refreshed spiritually and physically. To bring us to this day my second son Kyriakos picked Tim's book "The Principles of the Doctrine of Christ" which he thoroughly enjoyed and will be sharing this winter in his youth group in Holland. 
In closing, I want to thank you Tim, Nelly and all the workers together with Him for your faithful, tireless, loving service. May WTWH continue being what its name describes and grow in Godly influence and blessing as it glorifies God in word and deed. Till we meet again in another episode down the road HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! 
With lots of agape
Dimitris and Marjo

To the members of WTWH,
I would like to express my thankful appreciation to all those who have been a part of the WTWH family over these past 20 years. What started with such small and humble beginnings grew into a ministry which touched countless lives across the world with the Word of God and the power of the Lord Jesus Christ. Whether by live teachings, books, correspondence or any number of media devices, it is amazing to consider the wide range of people, cultures and countries that have been touched by WTWH. God's wonderful hand of grace and guidance has been evidenced on many levels in the lives of all those who have faithfully served and contributed to this work. The major principles that I believe guided this work into many fruitful opportunities was the fear of Lord, obedience, and humility. I will always be deeply grateful to WTWH for the friendships that I and my wife have enjoyed with the members through the years, as well as the opportunity to be a part of a mission trip to Tanzania, Africa. I thank God for the faithful and grace filled efforts of all those involved with WTWH, a ministry that truly glorified the Lord Jesus Christ and changed the lives of so many.

To Tim,
I thank God for your life. You have been one of the most influential people in my development as a Christian. I have the deepest respect and admiration for your love, faith and obedience to the Lord. You are a true friend who has been faithful to speak truth into and over my life over 20 years ago and ultimately at my ordination. May God continue to bless and increase your efforts now and may you have rich reward on the other shore.

Last, but certainly not least, this prayer:

WTWH is used by Jesus Christ for people who have eyes, to let them see, and for people who have ears, to let them hear.
WTWH is used by God for people who already see and hear to help them walk in the more excellent way.
May WTWH continue delivering people through the ministry of the Holy Spirit, to let them see and hear nothing than the truth!
"The truth shall make you free." Jesus Christ
