Prayer Support Letter 

April 2018

This month I want to share with you how just one contact can lead to touching multiplied thousands of lives. Back in 2002-2004 time period, we were contacted by Moses Muguro, who at that time was working with the Bible Society Of Kenya in Nairobi, Kenya. From that contact things grew and I went to Kenya for the first time in 2004, fulfilling a life-long ambition to minister in Africa. Little did we realize at that time how God would use this contact to grow and grow into a wonderful visitation of God that has spread throughout East and Central African nations ~ and still continues to grow ~ that has touched multiplied thousands of lives, even in nations that have been closed to the Christian Gospel. Amazing transformations have taken place as the Holy Spirit has moved through my books and ministry, filling people with the Holy Spirit and they being released to speak in other tongues, prophesy, etc. Even a national leader in a Muslim nation ~ who recently got saved through reading my “School Of The Holy Spirit” manual gave permission for four churches to start for the first time! Recently the soldiers in Somali all heard the Gospel and received a copy of a book. Hallelujah!

We just do not know that the next contact you or I receive or have may be the beginnings of something that can grow to impact multiplied thousands of lives. Having a Website to share Jesus can be a wonderful means of a new contact coming your way that will release you to minister to thousands in the times ahead. Never under-estimate what the Holy Spirit can do when we will be obedient to Him. ~ Rodney W. Francis.

Here is Moses comment about that first contact:

“Hi Dad Rodney, I am inspired and blessed by the miracles that Jesus brings along our paths when we listen to and obey His voice and do whatever Jesus tells us to do. When we hear and obey Jesus, the rest is a breakthrough. 

I vividly remember the miracle of the first encounter with you through Internet and, after writing to you, you graciously responded and even came all the way to Kenya after my invite. Our God is amazingly wonderful and miraculous. I recall searching through the web for a ministry that could help nourish me and my fellow pastors and ministers in Africa, and the Lord made the search engine bump into The GFM ministry.

THE REST IS HISTORY. You sent me your books, spiritual materials and everything I needed for growth ~ and I was nourished and had to share with others. I was introduced to your books, and after I gave you an invite ~ you joyfully and gracefully came to Kenya through Tanzania, and I picked you up from a shuttle at one of the Nairobi town stage’s and you stayed in a Catholic Sisters Guest House (they thought you were a Catholic Father from New Zealand – smile). You are an amazing man of faith ~ you risked your life into Africa for the sake of many ministers and Christians in Kenya and Africa. 

Dad Rodney, even in your old age, we pray that the Lord will continue to strengthen you and bless you and Mum Jean. May the Lord reward your commitment and Gospel efforts in amazing ways. Kindly know that we are indebted by your love and passion for equipping the church in Africa, and we appreciate your large heart that had blessed many lives in  Africa in amazing ways. 

In my encounter with you, you stirred up my vision for church and ministry in Africa, and our PEFA Utawala church is a living miracle touching lives here in Africa ~ We have seen God’s amazing faithfulness. Thanks for all the powerful prophetic insights and input into our lives. May the Lord bless you. Your son in Kenya” ~ Rev. Moses Nganga Muguro (Pastor-PEFA Utawala Church). (Moses is one of The GFM Representatives in Kenya).
