Every morning when I open my emails and read letters with news of people's prayers and gifts, I am deeply moved and encouraged. It builds my faith.
I confess it is quite easy for me to experience unbelief. I don't seem to have to work at it…when I think about the economic mess we experience right now in the world, and when I look at the faith steps we are taking, unbelief tends to creep in.
But when I pray, and when I reflect on the promises of God, and when I remember it is for Africa that we are interceding, then faith stirs in my heart. A friend once said to me, "If you intercede to God for people, then you have authority to intercede to people for people."
It is for Africa that I intercede right now. Not for us, or for a property, but for Africa. So I boldly ask you, would you prayerfully consider a year-end gift for Africa?
If you did not read my last letter, we are trusting God for a leadership training center. We have signed a purchase agreement to buy a property with wonderful facilities. We will use it for leadership training, to house students and emerging leaders, to host outreach teams, and to run a trade school.
There are two ways you can help us:
1. One is to pray. I really mean that – I believe there is power in prayer.
2. The other is to give a gift. I have asked people to consider a gift of $1000 (R10,000), but no gift is too small.
I asked last week for 200 people to give a gift. Quite a few people have responded. Thank you!
Yours for Africa,
