First Monday Fast

A quick reminder, confession, and encouragement:

 It was mentioned at Annual General Meeting, that the first Monday of the month is a designated field fasting day (you can fast food, all food, just a meal, fast from media- give up something in order to pray more today).  I am not good at fasting.  But I want to take up the challenge and see how God will move.  I don't want my lack of self-discipline to hinder the work He is longing to do here.  So, here is the encouragement I found today:

"At the heart of the gospel is a cross.  The spirit of Christ is a spirit of self-sacrifice.  The cross, self-sacrifice, self-denial, and fasting are all interrelated.  It is the spirit of putting God first, of seeking God's will and eternal goals, of taking up your cross daily and following Christ.  At the heart of the sanctified life is a crisis of crucifixion, of self-surrender, and of total commitment followed by a crucified life.  The Spirit-filled believer should find joy in fasting for kingdom goals." -Wesley Duewel, Touch the World through Prayer

Will you fast for the ministry in Uganda today?  Leave a comment to let us know you are standing with us.  It would be an encouragement!
