Praise and prayer requests:

  • Thank God our staff and family members have remained safe and free from covid related illnesses. This severe third wave has resulted in more hospitalizations and deaths.
  • Thankfully we are experiencing a more secure situation in the country. With the help of foreign troops, the army has retaken areas taken over by the insurgents. The government is regaining control of Cabo Delgado province, affected by the violent insurgency.
  • Gratefully, God has allowed some campuses to stay active in spite of covid restrictions. Most of the evangelism, discipleship trainings and ministry have been virtual.
  • Praise God for the Significant Women's Ministry activities. The first group of four ladies completed the training cycle.
  • Pray God continues enabling the army to clear the escalated insurgency in the northern province of Cabo Delgado. Pray the LORD will restore peace and stability in the province and the central region of the country.
  • Pray God continues opening ministry opportunities for Student Led Movement and Global Church Movement especially during the fear and uncertainty caused by the pandemic.
  • Please continue to pray for safety and health for our staff team during this time in our country and the world.

Thank you for praying and clicking “YES I’VE PRAYED”.
