Preaching Discipleship to Jesus

Pray that an evangelist and other Rangi believers would be encouraged, equipped, and emboldened during the visit of a missionary today and tomorrow (May 25-26). He’ll be preaching about certain aspects of discipleship from Matthew 10. Pray that the Lord will mightily use the ministry of the Word in the lives of these believers from Muslim backgrounds.

School Children, Church Plots, and Rain

From a Rangi evangelist: “I thank the Lord that in His mercy we were able to teach 57 school children this year. Please pray for those families that have a hard time paying school fees. Please also pray about this: there is a Methodist church that wants to give us property so we can use it for outreach ministry. Of course we’ll need funds to build a building. Lastly, please pray for rain. The farms here are very dry and people are hungry. Thank you for your prayers.”

Now They are Open

A Christian School’s Inspection

From a Rangi evangelist: “Please pray for a school inspection that I will be having. The government leaders have promised to come and have a look at the state of the school to see if it has met the requirements. If so, they could register the school, if not they will remove it from the list. Also I have a vision to get a Compassion International center on some church land, to continue that ministry. Please also pray in general for the ministry of the school and the church.” Pray for Rangi Muslims to come to faith in Christ through these efforts.

Training and outreach

You prayed…He answered

On Oct 24, 2017 you prayed for this request: “Thank God for his blessing, because we are already roofing a classroom, and now join me to pray for finishing the floor, windows, doors and plaster. This is a place for Muslim high school students to come after school for tutoring and to learn about Jesus Christ.” And God answered: “I want to thank God for the building of a classroom, we are now finishing and planning to open it officially on the graduation day.”

I have talked with the chief of Busi and he accepted to be the guest of honor.

You prayed…He answered

The following request you prayed for about a certain Rangi man named Yusuph: ” Jan 17, 2018 Please pray for Yusuph. He needs a job that will support him till God opens the way to attend Bible school.”
Sep 17, 2018 “We praise God for one Rangi student and four from other Muslim UPGs who have joined Majahida Bible college for Bible Training. Yusuph from the Rangi people is zealous to reach his own as soon as he finishes school.”
And God answered: “We praise God for Yusuph, he’s now in school and he is doing very well in his studies. God has also provided supporters for his school fees. Thank you.” Praise the Lord.

Salvation For Neighbors

Please pray for the salvation of Zaruna and Bisania, Muslim neighbors to a Christian family among the Rangi.

Requesting prayer

I thank God Zaruna came to church. Continue to pray for him. Pray also for ten other people I preached to and prayed for. Now others are continuing to ask for prayers and request we continue to pray for them.

This Far The Lord Has Helped Us

From a Rangi evangelist: “Please join me in thanking the Lord for His help to us here. He helped us build bathrooms for our school.

Pray for the Muslim families who will attend, that they will hear the gospel.” Pray that the school will be a tool in God’s hand for many Rangi families to come to faith in Christ.

A Pastor and His Wife

Pray for a Rangi pastor who came from a Muslim background. Last year he was married. He and his wife began to have problems, and she left him to return to her family. His Muslim father is mocking him for this failure. Now his health is deteriorating. Please pray for this man of God to settle his heart in God. Pray that God will help his wife remember her marriage vows and repent in obedience to God’s Word. Pray that this pastor will have courage, and perseverance as well as mercy and grace as he stays in ministry on his own. Will you also pray for his wife? He doesn’t know what is currently happening with her. He desperately needs God’s direction in this situation. Thank you for your prayers.

Amen!
