Church Planter Chronicles
Happy New Year!
I have goose bumps bigger than ever! I just finished reading one of the many stories we will share with you in the months to come about N.C.F’s church planters.
Listen to this young man’s own words. Tell me if you don’t get goose bumps?
From Regella we were invited where I am serving in to 400 KM distance to the house of woman witchdoctor. This woman has been opposing the good news of our Lord Jesus Christ that nobody has to listen and go the Christian families of communities. She has been known as a qualified trainer for young witch doctors. A married couple who lived with her for a long time have a daughter whose name is Astoria. In the meantime Astoria has been sick and couldn’t be able to be healed. This daughter has been taken to many with doctors to be healed, but there was no help to the girl at all. After her father and mother spent a lot of money for their daughter, they came to discuss with each other saying ” we’ve done our best to restore our daughters health in spending a lot of money, but no help has come. It is better if we could invite these Christian preachers* to come to our home and pray to their God if he could help our daughter If their God help our daughter and get to be healed we well let our daughter to believe their God and we will believe too” So then they called us to their home and told us every thing in details. Then we shared the Lord Jesus Christ to them and told them how Jesus gave His life to them and to all man kind to save from eternal death to eternal life. Then we prayed for a sick daughter asking the kindness mercy, and compassion of the Lord. We prayed as Jesus prayed at the tomb of Lazarus the day he raised him. We prayed, Lord please let us not to be a shamed, that we are here by Your Holy name. would you please honor your great name. Please heal this girl for the sake of your name. The father , the mother and their daughter all received the Lord as their personal savior. Praise God a sick girl whom her family were waiting her death has received a complete healing for the Lord on that same week of their salvation.
The story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead is one of my personal favorites. To see this Church Planter refer to the power that was present when Lazarus was raised from the dead to him calling upon the same Jesus for this little girl. Ohhhh the POWER of God. Doesn’t it make you thrilled this is the same God you serve? We are on God’s team beloved and our days are short. I thank you for your faithfulness in supporting these men and their families. Many of them continue to face very difficult circumstances yet they are thankful to be sent. Bless them! Would you remember them in your prayer this week as we continue to walk by faith.
May I ask you to join me? 15 of these men asked specifically for prayer for more soldiers to come to the frontline. Currently, N.C.F. has 60 men ready to go but the finances are preventing them. Please pray that God would raise the funds to release these willing men to go.
May God Bless you richly in the months to come!
