“The Gospel Faith Messenger” Ministry
and Rodney & Jean Francis
Prayer Support Letter
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 had 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.
Special thanks to all those who are praying for this Ministry, and for those who are financially supporting it. We are partners together in touching lives around the world. Love in Jesus ~ Rodney W. Francis.
Mombasa Prophetic Conference, Kenya: Dear Rodney, I thank God for His mercies. The Mombasa Conference (17th-19th May) was most powerful and so many people attended where we had over 170 churches being represented. Each pastor sent at least 10 leaders. In the conference we had the area Government Commissioner in attendance in all the three days. We could not fit in our church so we moved to a big social building. The second day was a day of impartation where 80 percent of attendees spoke in tongues. This was the first meeting ever where such numbers of people spoke in tongues. We bought together three leading Theological Colleges who were so happy to be introduced to Prophetic Ministry. We thank God for such a great meeting. ~ Charles Mwanda (King Jesus Ministries, Mombasa, Kenya). (Charles is one of The GFM Representatives in Kenya ~ 5,000 copies of Rodney’s book “Developing Prophetic Ministry” were distributed at that Conference).
Holy Spirit Weekend at Petone Baptist Church, NZ (15th-17th June)(Rodney and Barry Sluiters ministered): “Thank you so much for your investment into the spiritual growth of our church community. This was a really special weekend and there were many people deeply impacted and activated by the words of encouragement that they received from the Lord!!!! Many people have echoed and agreed with the words that this is a ‘new beginning’ for our church. For me it was especially exciting and an answer to prayer to see our elders and congregation receive breakthrough in the gifts of the Spirit!!! Your words for me, Rodney, were also very encouraging. Karen and I both feel we have a ministry releasing the Spirit to other nations and we have been praying about this. Very exciting times. Here are some testimonies from our church:
“I went to Friday and Saturday and both were great. I was really impacted by Rodney and Barry's stories and their gentle way of encouraging us to work in the Holy Spirit and impart that to others. There wasn't any hype or pressure. It was gentle and real. I received and gave words of encouragement/prophecy. The words given to me were very accurate and impacting, and lined-up with words I had been given by others in the last year. I feel like this has been really valuable for us as a church and I'm excited by where it's going. God is good” (Dan).
“I was impressed by Barry and Rodney's humility on the weekend. It was quickly obvious from the stories they told and how they operated that they believed God was the source of their confidence. I was personally blessed and encouraged by the stories and personal ministry. I would recommend them if they were to come again.” (Derek).
“It was great having Rodney and Barry come to PBC to share, minister and encourage us to step out in responding to the Rhema word of God. It was awesome to see people in our congregation learning and being encouraged to step out in the small groups - giving accurate and encouraging words from God to others and seeing them be wowed when thoughts and images in their own minds were confirmed by others and that they were in fact hearing from, and ministering through the Holy Spirit. I'm really excited to see what happens in this next season as a result of this equipping and encouraging time. Thank you so much to Rodney and Barry for your time and commitment to us at PBC.” (Sialei).
Rodney and Barry, I bless you, I bless the work of your hands, I bless every enterprise that you are involved with; may they prosper. I bless your household, your marriage, and I bless the relationships between family members. I bless the gifts that God has given you. I bless you with wisdom to make good decisions and to develop your full potential in Christ. Grace and Peace ~ Glen Molloy (Pastor).

THOUGHTS:“A revelation is a new thing, creative thought or understanding of the things of God we did not know before. It comes through the Holy Spirit speaking to us” . . . "Every great man and woman in the Bible started out as a total unknown nobody, until one event happened in the life of them all: they all heard the voice of God and obeyed it! And then they became well-known somebodies to the glory of God!" ~ Rodney W. Francis.
