Prayer Support Letter 

September  2018

 Welcome to this month’s Prayer Support Letter. The Lord continues to touch thousands of lives through this Ministry. Daily we are receiving reports and testimonies of what the Lord has done, and is doing. It never ceases to amaze us at what God can do when we are obedient to what He has called us to do.

  • It is so important that Christians know the will of God for their lives.

  • Life is so very different when we are doing what God has saved and called us to do.

  • There is a harvest to be gathered in, and the Lord needs every Christian to be about the Master’s business.

  • You can make a positive difference when living to fulfil God’s will and purpose for you.

There was a huge positive response to the Testimony we sent out about the Government of Uganda Commissioners' Conference and their mentioning The GFM Ministry and the “School Of The Holy Spirit” manual. (That manual was produced out of a Prophetic Equipping School we held in Swansea, Wales, back in 1997. We did not know back there that God would use it to impact multiplied thousands of lives around the world, filling them with the Holy Spirit, speaking in other tongues, and being released into the Spiritual Gifts. God certainly amazes us at what He can do when we are obedient to Him. And the impact of that manual still continues today)! All Praise to Jesus!

Special thanks to all those who are praying for this Ministry, for Jean (who continues to make good progress in her healing from her left knee replacement operation), and for those who are financially supporting it. When we are all doing our part of fulfilling the Great Commission (Mark 16:15-20 ) then the Gospel will soon go to the ends of the earth. It is the Gospel (Good News) of Jesus Christ that this generation desperately needs, and it is only the born-again, Holy Spirit-filled Christians who can share that Message in the way that brings about real eternal results. We are partners together in touching lives around the world.

Let us all be challenged more and more of the importance of making Jesus Christ known, of getting His Message out to the nations. Gospel literature is one of the most powerful ways of doing this, for people only read when their hearts are open to receive. Also, unless the printed word is destroyed, it remains to minister again and again. Our experience is that we are still receiving responses to literature we send out over 20 years later! That is why we are stirred in our hearts to keep the printing presses rolling, so the Message of Jesus Christ can be spread far and wide.

Dear Christian, in a day when the anti-Christ spirit is rising up more and more, do not let it silence you from your devotion to Jesus Christ, or from your being hindered in getting His Message out to the peoples. Know that the Message of Jesus Christ is the only way to God (John 14:6 ; Acts 4:12 ) and know that it is extremely important that people are given an opportunity to accept or reject Him. Eternity with Jesus can only be sure for those who are born-again by the Holy Spirit while still alive on this earth. Let’s get the Message out to the peoples! Together we can make a great difference. Hallelujah! Love in Jesus ~ Rodney W. Francis.

THOUGHTS:“The Kingdom of God is built upon relationship; not organisation” . . . “In Jesus, many talk the walk, but few walk the talk”(David Tait, Webuye, Kenya) . . ."A revival always includes conviction of sin on the part of the church.... Backslidden Christians will be brought to repentance. A revival of God is nothing else than a new beginning of obedience to God"(Charles Finney).
