We are starting follow-up and outreach to old areas and new areas on the 28th. We have four different teams of 3 going out with the Jesus Film in different directions. Pray for fruitful ministry and many to come to Christ.
Among the Jiye, women are receptive to the gospel, but young men are hostile. These men see themselves as warriors, and drunkenness is a stronghold, along with their traditional beliefs. Pray that they would hear God’s call to be warriors for Him and to be filled with the Spirit rather than with alcohol.
Pray for disciples in Kasengor, Lopyat and Buma among the Jiye.
Pray for peace with neighbors
Pray for God’s provision of desperately needed hospital, schools, and water.
Pray for faithfulness in the disciples’ lives.
Pray for the Jiye disciples in refugee camps.
Just talked to Mark on Sat phone. The 17 disciples being trained the past three months (2 of which were Jiye the rest were Toposa and Nyangatom) have returned to their villages with commitments to engage 74 new villages in their areas. In one Jiye location last month we partnered with IAS and Across and drilled one bore hole. Through that we gained much favor. In that village 2 women of peace were discovered. In the last month these ladies began 6 discovery groups which have become 3 new churches meeting under trees. Also over the past two months there have been 40 new baptisms. 2 of which were Jiye. Pray for these 17 disciples as they begin their ministries in these 74 new locations and fulfill their faith commitments. Pray for the new Jiye believers among these 6 new groups to continue to multiply. Exciting times.
Pray for Joseph and Nakelio who are leading a discipleship training program and follow up among the Jiye for the next 3 months. Pray for much fruit.
Pray for the outreach planned for next week among the Jiye. Ask God to prepare many hearts to hear and respond to the gospel.
Praise the Lord for Jiye who are coming to faith in Christ! Praise the Lord for spreading His Word among the Jiye! Pray for reproducing, indigenous, Christ-centered churches among the Jiye people by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Pray for Peter Peta, the man of peace and elder that first welcomed the mission team that came to do a survey last April, as he trains and equips 10 new Jiye disciples.
Pray for the mission team of Toposa and Nyangatom disciple makers as they prepare to return for a second mission to visit and encourage these new believers and simple churches they have started.
