“The Gospel Faith Messenger” Ministry
and Rodney & Jean Francis
Prayer Support Letter
We have so much to thank the Lord for as we consider what is happening in East and Central Africa right now. May the reports inspire and challenge you to be “all out” for Jesus. In spite of the dangers, Christians are trusting God with their lives as they hold secret meetings and distribute books produced by this Ministry. May God give us more totally-committed Christians who are prepared to “love not their lives to the death” (Revelation 12:11 ; Acts 15:26 ). It is that kind of commitment to Jesus that gets the Gospel Message to places where it has not gone before. Jesus will not come again until the Gospel has been preached in all nations (Matthew 24:14 ). Let us all be more committed to the will of God in these needy times. What is your part in the spreading of the Gospel? God bless you ~ Rodney W. Francis.
MOZAMBIQUE: Thank you so much for praying for our recent trip to Mozambique! Jesus used your prayers mightily to impact many lives for the Kingdom. We have seen God doing amazing things in the lives of the people and I am confident in the days to come that this great nation of Mozambique will experience a great Spiritual Awakening ~ it is indeed so ripe for harvest! Every day and night the churches were packed with hungry believers eager for a touch from Jesus Christ ~ the one true God! I am already planning to go back to a different city there for the School Of The Holy Spirit, Bible Correspondences and prophetic Ministry.
Reaching the world with the Gospel is not an impossibility. If it were, Jesus would never have given us the Great Commission. But it requires commitment to the task. I have witnessed the power of the printed page changing the world. The potential of good Christian literature is limitless! We have distributed the 10,000 “School Of The Holy Spirit” Manuals to over 100 church leaders in places where we might never personally be able to go and preach, and we believe wherever men, women and children will open their hearts to receive the written message, the Holy Spirit is right there to meet with them, and to reveal JESUS. ~ Pastor Jones Chamangwana (GFM Representative in Malawi).
SOMALI: The Somali Mission was so successful in spite of high tension due to the kind of threats to any Christian in that country. Everything went well and ended on a high Holy Ghost powered prayer in which over 200 spoke in tongues and prophesied; something that had never happened before. This happened after allowing group book reading of “Developing Prophetic Ministry” for three hours before a one hour meeting in the morning. Through the books and small groups study the power of the Holy Spirit swept through like a burning bush. It started with one old man and went from one to another and swept through. Over 540 leaders attended and all promised not to reveal the secret of our meetings. They came from 14 districts. The meeting was done one hour in the morning before 9:00 a.m.; this was for security reasons. This was the first ever Christian meeting in that country. 10,000 books were given out, each getting according to the area he represents. The meeting ended without deaths; this was a miracle, because almost any meeting of such number ends with some deaths. God loves His people and through your books His message is reaching where it would have been impossible to reach. Public meetings, church services or distribution of Bibles are never allowed here. The books were printed appearing like the Quran of Islam. It has been a long journey, but God is good. The books were distributed to men and women by Christians, all dressed in Islamic attires; this helped a lot to confuse the militants ~ it was like people going for humanitarian aid in a UN Camp. Your books are the only preacher of the true Gospel in Somali. Blessings ~ Pastor Charles Mwanda (Mombasa, Kenya ~ our GFM book distributor representative for East Africa).
