|Prayer Meeting May 2011|
Ever wish you could just hop on a plane and join us for our weekly prayer meeting? Ok, maybe you didn't know we have a weekly prayer meeting- but if you did- you'd want to join us. Really, though, if you covenant to pray for WGM Uganda at any point of the week, you're here in spirit.
This week we decided to pray BIG for God's glory! Here are the requests that were lifted up:
- Trip to Pokot, Uganda (414 kilometers). AGC Kenya is transferring 4 churches that they have planted on the Uganda side, to AGC Uganda. Jonathan Mayo, Bishop Keffa Masiga, Pastor James Ouma, Pastor Emmy Mugisha and Kennedy Kirui will be traveling Feb 17-19 to visit, encourage and welcome these churches.
- While in Pokot, the men will try and connect with Shadrach (a former student at KIU involved with the ministry of United Faith Chapel) to see how the Lord might have us partner together.
- Arua Team East Africa Expedition. See details here.
- John and Beth Muehleisen are in Kenya til the end of the month leading a work team.
- Pastoral Training of Trainers will be held Feb 27
- Josh Hallahan and Kennedy Kirui are beginning to plan trips out to where university ministries have already been planted around Uganda, Kenya, and Tanzania.
- Heritage Seniors- there aren't any strong Christian leaders in this class and they are setting the tone for the secondary block.
- Raymond and Nicole Leisure are continuing to fund-raise despite many challenges.
- Matt and Joy Burke are scheduled to arrive in Uganda March 26, beginning the cross-cultural transition of packing and saying goodbyes.
Interested in starting your own missions prayer meeting? There are some awesome resources at www.prayermeetings.org And this is what K.P. Yohannan says about missions prayer meetings:
In early 1976, when the Lord began to break my heart over the lostness of the world, one of the first things we did as a family was to call a few of our friends and start a prayer meeting in our home. That Tuesday night meeting still continues without fail after all these years. We spend the first part of the evening in worship and praise with brief testimonies and thanksgivings. We don't spend the time chatting but hear reports from different countries of the world, individuals, tribes and unreached people groups. We read prayer letters and requests from all over the United States and Canada, as well as overseas. Frequently we will pause to break into small groups or pairs to pray over each request. In this way, we have seen hundreds and hundreds of specific answers to prayer. If there is not a missions prayer band in your church or neighborhood, why not start one? If one already exists, why not go and add your faith and warmth to that group.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
