A word for you
 Perhaps your vision of God’s purpose for your life has been clouded by a wish list that you have expected God to dutifully fulfill. Perhaps, you have fervently hoped that God would create a world that unfolds according to your wishes, not His. If so, you have probably experienced more disappointment than satisfaction and more frustration than peace. A better strategy is to conform your will to God’s (and not to struggle vainly in an attempt to conform His will to yours).Sometimes, God’s plans and purposes may seem unmistakably clear to you. If so, push ahead. But other times, He may lead you through the wilderness before He directs you to the Promised Land. So be patient and keep seeking His will for your life. When you do, you’ll be amazed at the marvelous things that an all-powerful, all-knowing God can do.
God will make obstacles serve His purpose. – Mrs. Charles E.Cowman
Underneath each trouble there is a faithful purpose. – C. H. Spurgeon

God does not discipline us to subdue us, but to condition us for a life of usefulness and blessedness. – Billy Graham

Have a blessed day

Zambia

We were privileged to meet and dine with a group of visiting journalists from leading Israeli media outlets including one attached to the Prime Minister’s office. Some among the group asked Fay and I to pray for them and bless them and we did it in the name of Yeshua.

Congregations.

We are so glad to report that G-d through Beth Messiah Messianic Synagogue in Sarasota has given us a Torah Scroll and we will be dedicating it on September 5th. Hallelujah!!!!

The Luwingu congregation in northern Zambia was under threat of attacks from the tribal leader who even took parts of the congregational land. The congregation is not new to attacks. It lives alongside a very hostile community who are against many biblical teachings. A few years ago the congregation was attacked by villagers using machetes and other primitive weapons. G-d has been protecting the congregation and so far no attacks have been made against our people. We have also appealed to the senior most tribal leader to intervene.

Our Chinkuli congregation was also drawn into a dispute by the new tribal leader which has since been resolved.

Thank you for your generous prayers.

Orphanage.

We briefly housed at our orphanage some young girls rescued from a brothel in Lusaka. Many young girls are being drawn into prostitution due to poverty and lack of schools.

We have another new child coming to our orphanage and others about to come in when the paper work is cleared by the Zambian government. We are so grateful to all those sponsoring orphans at our orphanage and those who are on the waiting list to sponsor a child into the orphanage. Sponsoring a child at the orphanage is $80 a month.

The Day School

We have a new head of school at the day school Barbara Chanda. The children have had a very full and exciting time. We are so grateful to all who are supporting these children enabling them to have a chance to aquire an education, healthy meals and to learn about our Wonderful Heavenly Father. We have over 140 children at the day school with girls being in the majority. We still have many kids in need of the $25 sponsorship at the day school.

Graciousness Extended Project

Occasionally we have the opportunity to extend graciousness to children that have special needs or have graduated from our day school but have no support. Some of the children who have graduated from the 7th grade no longer are given a meal or assistance to go on further with their education.  We have developed a new program to help care for these children who do not fall under our school and feeding program. If you were sponsoring a child who has since graduated and you would like to continue sponsoring the same child this is for you.

 

Praise reports

PRAYER POINTS- Please join us in prayer for the following:

  • The Luwingu congregation are in need of a new roof costing $900.
  • The greatest numerical growth of Bible believers in the world is currently taking place in Africa and African believers are facing an increased level of persecutions from Muslims. Beheadings, shootings, bomb attacks, kidnapping, slavery, forced conversion, acid attacks and many other evil things are being committed against God’s children. Please pray for the Body of Messiah in Africa especially in Nigeria, Kenya and Somalia.
