Please pray for one Matumbi family who have heard the gospel for almost five years. They deeply love the Bible and Jesus. Please pray that they will confess faith in Christ and be baptised as a family, and that other families will follow their example.
Please pray that the Matumbi will no longer seek the help of witch doctors to relieve them from tormenting evil spirits, but will instead come to Christ for complete freedom and protection, deliverance and power.
Please pray that the people who attended the seminar for Matumbi disciple-makers will continue to spend time reading God’s Word and praying each day, deepening their own relationship with Christ.
We have been praying for more laborers for the Matumbi harvest field and God has answered in an amazing way! The Lord blessed the training of 50 Matumbi disciple makers last week. He broke down walls of division and brought unity among the believers. Five Matumbi Disciple- Making teams were organized by key locations, and each team appointed three representatives/ leaders who our team will be working with to do follow-up and ongoing mentoring and training. They went back to their different villages truly unified in love as one body in the Lord, equipped with a new vision and a practical plan in place to abide in Jesus first & foremost, and to obey the call to make disciples among their own people, together.
Praise God the first day of training in discipleship and disciple-making went well. Pray for the 47 people attending and for the trainer, Juma Richard. May there be lasting fruit!
Please pray for the discipleship training among the Matumbi. More and more believers are asking to attend, from more and more villages. Pray for the Lord to greatly work in that meeting the last week of November, unifying them in their Christian love for one another and making them vibrant witnesses and disciple-makers among their own people.
November 27-Dec 1, about thirty Matumbi believers from five villages will come together for the first time to receive training in discipleship. Some have never met before. Please pray for there to be deep unity among these believers and for the Holy Spirit to give them the vision for reaching their own people, together. Pray for a movement of disciples making disciples among the Matumbi.
Please pray for the logistical hurdles to be overcome for a Matumbi family to begin regularly studying the Bible together. The husband and wife work very long hours and finding a time to meet with them is difficult.
A Matumbi man and his family have made the decision to follow Christ. Recently they received a Bible story book. While their teacher is on leave, pray they will read the book diligently and grow in their confidence that Jesus Christ is trustworthy.
“Father, we ask You to raise up Matumbi disciple makers who will catalyze a movement that will spread throughout the Matumbi hills and beyond.”
