Our team arrived here in Rubavu, Rwanda safely. We are all healthy and renewed. The work has started. 300 local intercessors are fasting and praying on the site of the Festival Thursday through Sunday, which is when the weeklong festival events kick off. That is powerful!
Churches of all stripes are united in purpose and in prayer (Anglicans, Baptists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Charismatic congregations, etc). That is nothing short of a miracle in this day and age of theological polarization. God working!
Continue to pray with us that God's mighty anointing will work through us to draw thousands to Christ. Pray for utterance to be given to us to make manifest the work and the glory of Christ. Rubavu is a city with a 40% Muslim population, the most concentration of Muslims in all of Rwanda. The Mayor is Muslim and so are a number of public officials.
Thankfully, many of them will be attending our events including a special dinner we have planned for the business community that will include the Mayor and regional Governor. Pray for God to change their hearts and the heart of this community.
From the balcony of my hotel room, about a mile away, I can see the city of Goma which is in the Democratic Republic of Congo. It is a much troubled city that has seen the worst of days in recent years. Hundreds of its residents will be drooping across the border to this side to participate in the Festival events. Pray that this is the beginning of a mighty revival that brings the fresh wind and fresh fire of the Spirit that heals the wounds of this region.
Finally, continue to pray for the outstanding financial provision to help us complete this mission successfully. If you can, please click on the donate button on the right side panel of this page and follow the link to a secure donation site.
O Lord our God, it is for your glory! O Lord our God, pour out your Mighty Spirit to heal and to save the lost in Rubavu and Goma. For you are our hope. Our firm foundation. My soul delights in obeying your commands. I hasten to follow you in your mission for the salvation of humankind. Our Lord and God, do a new thing in Rubavu that sinners and unbelievers will marvel and therefore repent and glorify you!
