Prayer & Praise
September 17, 2014
"I saw a chance for deliverance from my cursed position," said 28 year old Losseni in Burkina Faso. "When the JESUS Film team visited our home to talk about seeing the film, I felt hopeful. I did things for which I am ashamed. Hearing Jesus changed me. I repented and received Christ as my deliverer!"
Praise God for delivering us from our bad choices, sins, and past!
"We feed the body and spirit," said a team member in the Philippines. "We partner with a church feeding program to share spiritual food. The children number forty and are thrilled to receive the food. We saw happiness and satisfaction on their faces as we also shared about Jesus with them. These little ones are receiving the gift of life!"
Pray for these children to grow into effective sharers of God's Word!
"My daughter has been in critical condition many times," said a mother in the Dominican Republic. "I asked a group of believers to join with me in prayer for her. I thank God my child is in good health now! She and I are planning to be baptized."
Praise the Lord for the health He has given this girl!
Praises & Prayer Requests:
- Praise God!!!! We are over halfway to the $140,000 needed! Since you began to pray last week about the door of opportunity in South Asia for equipment delivery, $71,990 has been received! In the next eight weeks, we have the opportunity to deliver 55 sets of equipment to waiting teams of nationals. One country has requested 40 mini-solar sets at $2,000 each ($80,000), and Sri Lanka has requested 15 solar-powered backpacks at $4,000 each ($60,000). In order to get this equipment to the travel groups in time, we need to have the balance of the funding, $68,010, by September 25th. Please pray for the Lord to supply this need just as He has given us an open door for this Kingdom harvest.
Gifts may be made by credit card by calling 913-663-5700 or checks mailed to JFHP, 15055 W 116th St, Olathe, KS 66062.
