Prayer Support Letter 

October  2018

 What challenging times we live in. The needs of the nations continue to grow and grow. For the Christians we have been given a great commission by God to take His Gospel to the ends of the earth. This is such a task that every Christian needs to be involved in whatever way God has chosen for us. Knowing His will personally for our lives is crucial today. We cannot afford to be drifting along hoping that things will turn out right. As we seek the Lord He will reveal His plans and purposes for our lives to us. When we know what God’s will is ~ and are committed to doing it ~ then we discover that our lives are much more effective than anything we ourselves can think or dream up. We all need to ask ourselves whether or not we are fulfilling the purpose of God for our life, so that if any adjustments need to be made we can make them in order to be more in the centre of His will. This is so important in these days.

  • We need to know that we Christians hold the answers and keys to the real needs of this generation, and that we are doing our part in making those answers known.

The world does not understand the spiritual make-up of a human being, and so only comes up with natural answers (which often make things worse).  

  • Every born-again, Holy Spirit-filled Christian has a vital part to play in this end-time hour. Let us make very sure that we are fulfilling our part.

~ Rodney W. Francis.


  • Report From Conference In Harare, Zimbabwe: The Zimbabwe Conference was birthed with a desire to fulfil the Great Commission; to go into the entire world and preach the Gospel, winning souls to Christ and bringing healing to those who are hurting. Most of the activities at the Conference were of the national peace and reconciliation. The resolution was made to help end the violence following a disputed election and prepared to mediate between Government and opposition. God moved mightily in Harare, and as a result people were healed, bondages were broken and many souls were saved! The Conference brought together all the denominations throughout the country and it turned to be a National Conference. Our God is the God of miracles and He is mighty to be praised! Your support is making a difference around the world! After the teachings and the sermons, 5,000 copies of “School Of The Spirit” manual and 5,000 copies of “Divine Healing ~ A Key To The Growth Of The Christian Church” were distributed to the pastors in order for new believers to be discipled and established in a local church, so that they can grow and mature in Christ! ~ Pastor Jones Chamangwana, E-Mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • Report From Conference In Mozambique: We have been praying for people to become Christians for decades and now it is happening! We are rejoicing with heaven after the Mozambique Conference! We have once again witnessed the wondrous works of the Spirit of God; and it thrills and excites us time after time.  There are reports of massive numbers of Muslims converting to Christianity following the Jesus' teachings. God is leading the followers of the Quran to study the Bible and to accept His Son Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour! God is doing something new in our generation. Muslims are looking for spiritual alternatives. We believe it is the desire of our Saviour to call the lost into the Kingdom of Heaven. We are living in exciting times, and how exciting it is to see how a great harvest of souls is being won for eternal life! We were overjoyed with the many testimonies we received, the Gospel is being proclaimed with greater effectiveness and Jesus Christ is in the business of changing lives.  Our hearts are overwhelmed with such joy, Thank you for your prayers. 5,000 copies of “Equipping For Leadership” book and 5,000 copies of “Unbelief ~ The Power That Needs To Be Broken” were distributed. We are witnessing the hand of God in action here in Africa. ~ Pastor Jones Chamangwana.

THOUGHTS: “Passion and action combine to build God’s Kingdom” . . . “If God knows more than me, shouldn’t I take His advice?” ~David Tait (Webuye, Kenya) . . . “If it is in the Bible, it is so. It’s not even to be prayed about. It’s to be received and acted upon. Inactivity is a robber which steals blessings. Increase comes by action, by using what we have and know. Your life must be one of going on from faith to faith” . . . “God wants His people to be ablaze with Holy Ghost activity” ~ Smith Wigglesworth.
