CGBCI Foreign Missions Praise and Prayer – May 2012

CHANGES AND UPDATES REGARDING FINANCES

Please remember that Pastor Steve Burns will become the new Treasurer of CGBCI Foreign Missions officially on July 1, 2012.  So, beginning July 2, 2012, please (there’s no way to overemphasize this) send all funds to:

CGBCI Foreign Missions
P.O. Box 217
Grimes, IA  50111

At that time, the Foreign Missions finances will also operate on a Conference year (as their fiscal year) just as Home Missions does.

CAMEROON
Afoni writes:  Thanks very much for the desire the Lord has put in your heart to always pray and support orphans in Cameroon.  I lost my father when I was almost 13 years old and had to face a lot of mountains in life not knowing that the Lord was leading into the  path of preaching the word today.  Ever since then, the Lord has always put a burden in my heart to assist others in the hope that through their own sufferings the Lord might draw them in the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. For the last 10 years I have struggled to do just a little as there are many helpless children around us.  We now operate through volunteers who can house the target population only. Our wish is to support in fees, books, uniform, clothing and medical care. As you know the program survives through free will donations through Christians like you. The program works with 100 orphans across the North West region of Cameroon.

I went to Bamenda over the weekend to buy 8 study bibles for our Practorium students in thenorth west…we shall need to buy two more. Continue at all times to pray that the Lord would raise faithful men to do the ministry and that lord should empower all churches to pay pastors so the ministry can be attractive.  We are planning to hold a revival  and prayer meetings for all pastors here at Njikijem to see how the ministry can move forward in one spirit. I’m going to Nkambe for three days to continue the courses.  Ndop ministry is still struggling to locate a public place for worship and to acquire land to  construct the church building. Yesterday, Pastor Isaiah’s wife gave birth to a bouncing baby girl at the regional hospital Ndop. Continue to pray for that family the Lord would give them more joy in serving even in difficult conditions.

INDIA
Brother Paul sends the following prayer requests:

1. Praise God for meeting the financial support need of church planters and please pray for the new church planters and their needs.

2. Praise God who enabled us to launch the Bicycle Project and the first bicycle was donated by Paul’s family to Lakpati Sipka.  The Coimbatore church has raise INR  2000.00 ($40 American dollars) for the second one.

3. Pray for Brother Junas and other new church planters as the need of drinking water is increasing in Odisha.  Pray that the organization which is planning to drill in Odisha will get started soon.

4. Pray concerning the problems caused by a terrorist group called Maoists.  They recently kidnapped a Christian District Collector in Chattisgarh state which is close to Odisha.  If we want to go to Odisha, we have to land atRAIPURairport which is the capital of Chattisgarh state.  They have yet to also release an Italian tourist who was abducted more than a month ago.

5. The churches are praying that the Lord will raise up 2 more church planters (a team) to plant a church in southern Tamil Nadu in the area of Sivakasi – Srivilliputhur.
