Brethren, we thank God for our Churches in the United States and South America. The reports in the recent times show that there is a wave of revival, spreading across our assemblies in the USA. We must also thank God that the evils in the society is not overtaking our Church, through the help of God, the testimonies from our brethren are still encouraging.
Recently, GOFAMINT took the gospel to outmost part of the world-Australia. Thank God for our brethren in this other nation also. Above all, we thank God for the vision of our Father-in-the Lord who is championing the course of taking the gospel to the outmost part of the world according to the command of the Master-Jesus.
However, we need to use this season to pray for these Churches, for they too are facing a lot of challenges like the Churches in Nigeria. We want more manifestation of the miraculous in all our Churches both in USA and other continents of the world. We must also pray for the leaders in these Churches that God will brighten their visions and encourage them to continue the work with vigour and strong determination. The gates of hell must not prevail against these Churches. God should favour them, so that their needs can be met in such a way that they too will spread the gospel to other nations around them.
The basic challenges of our foreign Mission is finance; due to poor exchange earnings from local currency we usually send to them. We need to pray that in the same way the Lord helped Apostle Paul for a Regional Network of Churches without depending on the Jerusalem Headquarters Church; the Lord should help our existing foreign fields that they will be self-supporting, self-financing and self-propagating. We must also pray that they will rise to sow seeds into the mother Church back home in Nigeria as the Lord lifts them up.
