Prayer & Praise
August 20, 2014
"Thank you for coming here," said the community leader in Guatemala. "I feel very happy because I have received Christ in my heart. May God be blessed for you coming into our community. I encourage you to keep preaching the Word of God. I beg of you, brethren, to keep praying for my wife and children so God can make a miracle in our homes and in our community so they may receive Christ as their Lord and Savior."
Pray for this leader's family to find a personal relationship with Christ.
"Thank God for His faithfulness," said the team member in the Philippines. "With His help, we hosted a film showing with about 200 in attendance. Many souls came to Christ. We have set up two adult Bible studies and one for youth!"
Praise God for His work in the Philippines!
"I found a new reason to live," said 29 year old Sawadogo in Burkina Faso. "All my life, I followed a religion which did not recognize Christ as Lord. I was not a very good follower. I was given to alcohol, and strong drink. I was immersed in the world of violence, theft, rape, assault, and other evil. Seeing the life of Jesus tonight, I've realized this is not the kind of life God created me to live. I realized how unhappy I am in this miserable life. I have accepted forgiveness in Christ. Brothers pray for me."
Pray for the change in this new believer to help others know God's saving love.
