Praise and prayer requests:

  • Praise the LORD for His protection for all our staff members in spite of some deaths in the country resulting from civil unrest and Covid 19.
  • Praise God for protecting our office building. Some buildings in towns were burnt and vandalised.
  • Pray for our the staff members to be able to discover and develop faithful ministry partners; so they will have at least 80 % of their financial support goal.
  • Pray for peace and stability in our country. Young people, particularly are not happy with the current government.  Pray our leaders will experience God’s wisdom in dealing with this.
  • Praise God for our partnership with Scripture Union.  A second generation of teachers have graduated from the virtual Multiplying Churches and Communities training.  Pray there will be lasting fruit.
  • LeaderImpact – Please pray for the success of our six months plan which includes vision casting to 40 leaders, trainings, hosting of outreach leaders, follow ups and starting of five LeaderImpact groups.
  • Student Led Movement – Thank God for raising 15 vibrate student leaders after the leaders training in June 2021. They have started implementing the Win-Build Send strategy.

  • African independent churches have gained a following of over half the population especially among men.  Their beliefs  range from an evangelical theological position to a high degree of compromise with polygamy, witchcraft, ancestor veneration and appeasement sacrifices.
  • The large "Zionist" movement strongly emphasizes both Pentecostal gifts and traditional African spiritual customs.  Pray these groups might be shaped by Scripture and directed by the Holy Spirit.  Pray also for increased interaction between Zion and evangelical churches; this will teach and benefit both groups.
