Africa prayer requests

January 13th, 2018
Comments Off

We are deeply involved with several African churches. Recently these prayer requests were sent out:

  • Ghana: Please pray for God’s intervention in our favor regarding three cases in court. People are trying to take over several parcels of land we acquired several years ago. We have documents covering each parcel, yet people are invading and trespassing.
  • Burundi: Please pray that God will give us favor so that we are not discriminated against because we are a small and relatively newly registered church in Burundi. The Government of Burundi appointed a new commission in charge of denominations. The commission consists of Bishops from denominations that have existed for a long time in Burundi. These denominations have modern church buildings and large development projects. The commission is requesting that the government close denominations that do not have these things and that request will be reviewed soon by the National Assembly. Please pray that God intervenes.
  • Zambia: Please pray for our jubilee celebrations.

The Ghana situation does not involve Buduburam. Kalengule wrote:

Land in Buduburam is not involved in law suits. However, on the other properties, brethren are in prayer and are fasting for seek God’s favour in these issues concerning land.

We helped purchase land for the Burundi church to have a more secure position in their society. Kalengule wrote:

 Land in Carama, Bujumbura, Burundi does not have a permanent building on it yet.  Brethren have built a temporary structure where they meet for worship services.  Constructing a permanent building is one of the prayers at the top prayer requests list.  A lot of money is needed for the construction.

Greg Williams and Kalengule have been in South Africa for the last week. Kalengule said ‘There is a lot coming up for us.’

For us here important decisions will need to be made for Liberia in the next few months. Please pray for God’s guidance on the priorities for the development of the church there.

Update: Kalengule has asked for prayers as he rides a bus to visit the nation of Malawi. He has just completed talks involving Greg Williams about the future of Africa. He expressed how our area and our support is of great inspiration to him.

From Al Kurawa:

SEP Prayer items

A big “Thank You” to everyone who has been praying for SEP 2018.  As I watched things fall into place with scheduling, housing, budget, and other logistics I could tell there were brothers and sisters all over Australia praying throughout camp preparation.  The start of SEP 2018 is almost here and we would appreciate your prayers during pre-camp (30-31 Dec) and camp (1-9 Jan).  Here are a few items for your prayer list:

We have a camper coming from the US and a couple from Fiji this year.  We are in a new location as well.  Your prayers for our developing relationship with the managers of PGL Campaspe Downs and that we are able to continue to establish a good rapport with them for future endeavours.  Prayers for first time staff.  Prayers for the weather as Campaspe Downs has no air conditioning in any rooms.  The location of Campaspe Downs is known for huge swings in temperature from day to night when we held SEP there in the 1990’s.  Last camp we were inundated with rain for three straight days to begin camp.  Being in a new location it would be really appreciated if we had nice, average weather the entire time we are at camp.  Please pray for the health and wellbeing of the campers and the staff.  Nobody wants to spend their time at SEP in bed sick.  Thanks again for praying for SEP as the staff share the gospel and their lives with campers over 9 days.
