Prayers & Praises
. . . we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous. — 1 John 2:1 (NLT)
The Right Time! International Consultant David Lall of Damoh, India, asked for prayer for their strategic meetings this month. Pray for God’s guidance in their important decisions and for safe travel during the monsoons. David says, “This is the time for what we are doing with videos and social media. God’s Word gets around faster. This is the right time to do more.”
Grateful to God! Protus Sibukule of the NOMaD team in Eldoret, Kenya, writes, “We are so grateful to God for providing International Director Bob Sartoris and Director of Development Matt Brock with this wonderful opportunity to visit us and especially in encouraging and blessing us. We are so very much thankful to you all and may the Almighty God bless you more highly. On behalf of the Pokot people, I want to say thank you a trillion times! The people of Pokot continue to thank God because of your specific prayers for rain. The area has continuously been receiving a good amount of rainfall and life is returning to normal. Meanwhile, I will be uploading the finished youth series to you soon, and I’m also in the process of refining the Pokot drama, Shida ya Samweli. Thank you so very much for your continued support and prayers.”
Our Greatest Joy! Sergei Golovin of GNPI-Ukraine writes, “Usually the main focus of apologetics ministry is preparing the soil for the seeds to produce proper harvest in the future. Nevertheless our greatest joy on this side of the Kingdom is definitely to see a harvest (as we’ve seen some friends choose to follow Jesus as Savior in the last month). What a great joy to be a part of the work the Lord is doing. May the name of the Lord be praised!”
Sowing the Seeds! TP of GNPI-SE Asia writes, “Evangelists are distributing our tracts in several parts of the country. Evangelist ZDK gave me some photos of his opportunities for sharing the True God in one of the local languages. Using the GNPI resources, he said many unbelievers in several villages accepted him and invited him to visit them often. He is sowing the seeds of eternal life in his home state. Praise the Lord!”
Blessing for the Church Plants! Isaac Sanyu of the Kampala Church of Christ in Uganda writes, “While in Mbale, a blessing brewed up for Kampala Church of Christ. Two Solar Kits were given to us to bless the church plants of Wakiso and Mityana. The kits were presented to Mbazira of the Wakiso Church plant and Michael of Mityana Church of Christ. The kits will be used to show videos and Bible teaching documentaries in the communities of Wakiso and Mityana.” Praise God for the opportunity to bless these new churches in Uganda.
