Africa – Souls and spiritual warfare, May 8, 2017
Jesus said, “And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Mt 24:14) We are asking you to stand with us in prayer against the enemy that wants to prevent the end from coming. “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Eph 6:10-12)
We join with the Father and the heavenly hosts as we remember what Jesus said, “I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” (Lk 15:10) We have received testimonies from only three of our coordinators for the month of April and 903 people have accepted Jesus. Please join with us in prayer for our coordinators and the equipment that God has provided and bind the enemy by the power of the Holy Spirit and the Blood of the Lamb that is out to sabotage our co-laborers and the equipment. In these last few weeks, we have experienced the robbery of all the equipment from Pr. Billy, the E. Uganda coordinator, with threats to kill him in the presence of his family; the mechanical failure of the generator that Pr. Simon uses in N. Kenya and the breakdown of the car that Pr. Martin uses to help meet all the demands of the over-all ministry. We are prayerfully working toward the money needed to repair the car of Pr. Evariste, the Burundi coordinator, ($1,200) and to purchase the generator and remainder of equipment ($1,300) to compliment the sound system and projector that have been provided for the pastor’s alliance in Namaingo in E. Uganda. Unless the Lord recovers the stolen equipment, it’s replacement would be about $3,600, the generator replacement $900 and the car repair $500.
“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” (2 Cor 4:8-9)
