My testimony is how great God is doing wonders here. Seeing hundreds of people prophesying is unexpected here and nobody could dream that one day such a thing will come to happen. More than 30 churches have fully embraced the prophetic teachings and have put into practice, and through this, miracles are happening and God is speaking so clearly to us. The ministry of The GFM is not a mistake ~ and it is not in vain what the books are doing. No preacher can do that and can reach such a big number of people who read both in English and Swahili. The book is the permanent file and which can be revisited anytime. We are praying for you. ~ Bishop David Kitui (Kimilili, Kenya).
Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ! I have been fascinated and have been following your ministry for quite some time now, reading almost everything I can lay my hands on. I am indeed blessed and lifted; the Lord has by it restored my joy in the service of the Kingdom. I am from Nigeria but right now I am in Ghana. I will love to be a part of your ministry by way of extension here in West Africa. I will be willing to work with you and abide by the tenets of the faith guiding your ministry, as I am convinced that it is a pure Biblical and heaven-bound ministry. GOD bless you richly ~ Evangelist Kingsley Diala.

Greetings in the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ! I've been blessed by the books you sent me. They have left my faith on a different level, but have left me hungering for more of your books, man of God. I've found what my spirit has been longing for, GROWTH in the WORD of God. Please help ~ Martin Sibanda (Bulawayo, Zimbabwe).
Rodney thanks. You have certainly sowed many seeds and left a great legacy in many nations. May the work continue to go forward! Blessings to you and Jean ~ Ken & Marianne Legg (Elanora, Queensland, Australia).
Thank you very much! I DO HONOUR your good heart and compassion for the Body of Christ. The more I read your books or e-mails the more my heart is longing for God's love. You make me cry (in a good way) and I want more of Jesus! I am so hungry! Thank you for everything you share with us. Blessings to you, your wife and The GFM Ministry. With gratitude ~ Laura O’Connell (Peachtree City, Georgia, USA).
Dear Brother Rodney and Jean, God bless you man of God! Thank you for your encouraging teachings. God placed you here to help His needy flock to understand His word. We appreciate your teachings so much. We are praying for you that God will give you more years to help humanity here on earth; also we have used your materials to teach my Church members. We also helping other leaders who can't access the internet to receive materials. ~ Pastor Philip Omare (Kisii, Kenya).
Thank you for the message which really made me feel His presence. Your inspiration is God-given and I do share with my fellow ministers all what you send to me. We are highly blessed and we need your books to help us grow spiritually. Smile, ~ Norman Wakumelo Sifuniso (Lusaka, Zambia).
Dear Pastor Rodney and Jean, Thank you for your email and your message.. I thank God for contacting you. I pray for your ministry across the world that the Lord will bless your ministry and souls would be won to Christ through your ministry. God bless you. ~ Solomon Thang Khang (Yangon, Myanmar).
Thank you, Dad (Rodney); you are making me joyful; I was down and discouraged but you have brought back joy, and I am never the same again. My ministry has been revived. I really appreciate you and your Team for your concern in my life and this has sharpened my focus in the ministry. Actually I lack words because you have shown me how faith can turn things around. May God bless you so much. ~ Pastor Aggrey Maende (Eldoret, Kenya).
Dear Rodney and Jean .... As a matter of fact, it is very clear that you are called to ministry. I thank God for the prophetic revelation He has imparted on you; and through studying your materials and books, has now put me and others within Kisumu and other remote areas onto another level. Many blessings ~ Pastor Erick and Milly Akach (Kisumu, Kenya).
Dear friends, This is all what our Heavenly Father intended for this country. God has been with us protecting us from terrorists. No incidents have happened and the secret mission of reaching to the interior community has been very successful. Thanks for Pastor Dick (Tonny) for printing books with a cover without words and putting them inside. This has helped us and those we give to, to be safe. Keep praying ~ Rev. Hassan Katana (Garrisa, Kenya) (distributor of books into Somalia and Southern Sudan).
Dear Rodney, Thank you so much for this very powerful word, FAITH COMES BY HEARING (BB~191). I have shared with my contact friends. This message is for all to hear. Faith is the basic of our salvation and we have to understand the teachings. FAITH IS AN ACTION is the best teachings. Thank you so much. ~ Pastor Charles Mwanda (Mombasa, Kenya).
Hello Rodney, I think the knowledge of the Holy Spirit that led you to put all these writings down is from God’s revelation by the Spirit of God. May God add to you more to inspire His people around the world. ~ Pastor Justine Elianu (Soroti, Uganda).
I am blessed with the teachings that you send to me. Some of them I print so that they may help me in my preaching and teaching. In few words I say, “Thank You, Jesus, for using Rodney Francis to empower me.” ~ Evangelist Jean Bosco Ngendakumana (Bujumbura, Burundi).
Dear Rodney, Jackie (Hodges) kindly sent me a copy of your new book, “The Urgency Of The Hour!” It's just great. I had tears in my eyes all the way through. It is ‘spot on’. Blessings ~ Eleanor Goodall (Hamilton, New Zealand).
Hi Rodney, I just want to thank you for giving me a copy of your latest book, “The Urgency Of The Hour!” I couldn’t put it down once I started reading it and it has given me a new sense of purpose. So, a big thank you for all you are doing. Blessings to you and Jean ~ Maureen MacDonald (Lower Hutt, New Zealand).
Dear Rodney and Jean, Thanks very much for the Barnabas Bulletins. I am learning new things every time you send me the bulletin; and I am becoming a good and successful leader through the word of encouragement you are sending to me. Continue to equip me through these inspiring words of God (success and failure is measured by what you do). I like this so much, and am waiting to learn more from your ministry. Love and blessings ~ Pastor Bright & Gertrude Bottoman (Malawi).
Thanks, Rodney, for this E-Book, “It’s Time To Prophesy!!” It has transformed me. With warm regards ~ Esther Waithera Njoroge (Nairobi, Kenya).
I have started reading your book (“An Encounter With God”) and am already up to page 21 – you have no idea how timely this is for my life and I am so grateful to you for sending it. Only the Holy Spirit could have known how greatly I needed this now. Thank you!! I am hungry to read it all. Bless you. ~ Ingrid Turner (Karratha, Western Australia).
Thank you very much for your inspiration. Your Gospel tract, “A Challenge To You!” has been the means of two Muslims being converted into Christianity. Thank you for your generous support to Malawi. The Anglican Church has requested more tracts. ~ Pastor Jones Chamangwana (Balaka, Malawi – our GFM Representative in Malawi).
Dear Rodney, Thank you for the feedback. Today I was at one of the local churches in Malawi rejoicing in the resurrection LORD! Death could not hold Him. After the services l was sharing the few tracts of "A Challenge To You!" and again today many souls give their life to Jesus. Remember your tracts have inspiration and bring more impact to Malawi. May God provide for more funding. Kind regards ~ Rev. Jones Chamangwana (Balaka, Malawi – our GFM Representative in Malawi).
Dear Rodney, I write to express my profound gratitude to you. Every gift you have sent to me and my ministry has been a blessing. The last book, entitled “An Encounter With God,” brought a spiritual revival to my life. ~ Pastor Johnson Shadare (Serrekunda, The Gambia).
I love your book, “You Can Measure Your Love For God.” Wow! Awesome! When a friend of mine loaned me your book, gee, as soon as I saw it, I knew the Lord wanted me to read it – and not just that, I have nearly practically written it all out by hand! . . . I am also interested in your “Bible Basics” manual for the ‘lambs’ that need nurturing. I believe your studies will greatly impact their lives . . . ~ Sonia Mitchell (Taumarunui, New Zealand).
Once again you have spoken DIRECTLY into my spirit and life. Thank you. Yesterday I was challenged: are you willing to pay the price? Yes; my only response but aware that ‘faith’ is spelt ‘risk’ and costly! Then today I read your latest BB and was stunned: the content and timing, the pin-pointed accuracy, all is amazing – only God’s doing; I am SO encouraged. It is okay and it is good to pray as Elisha did: I am released to do so! You dispelled some real anxieties for me about how I can and should now pray. The whole BB was so full of encouragement and direction: thank you! The Scriptures you offer give direction and form to my prayers. Please pray God's purposes are fulfilled. ~ Jonathan Rendall (Hereford, England).
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for this message (A Wounded Spirit). Your words speak very clearly and directly to the wounds which we have allowed to hold us back from our true nature and calling. May this short note give you encouragement that God is using your ministry to touch the lives of people...even half a world away. ~ Michael (USA).
I have studied your web site, and I found it the most wonderful site to get right to the True Word of God. ~ Faheem Qaiser (Pakistan).
Rodney, it has been a long time and I mean many years 20+since I have sat under the Knowledge and Encouragement of an older man that I can TRUST in the practical teachings of Jesus and hearing the gentle wee voice of God in the power of the Holy Spirit. I felt like the young Jesus in the temple soaking up the Word from the Priests and I could have sat there all day and night and listened to God’s appointed prophet. ~ Bob & Heather (New Zealand).
I have been healed from a wounded spirit through your website. I sense Him drawing me to newness, to Life. It is a New Hallelujah! Bless you all, ~ J R Williams.
Amazing how God is working through the literature you are sharing. The book you sent me, “An Encounter With God" is powerful. I have read it now for the fourth time. God has used me to share from it during the daily morning devotion at the church ~ powerful move of the Spirit of God. Amen ~ Dr. David Kamchacha (Lilongwe, Malawi)
I’m the one who you baptized in Hamilton in one of the Conferences . . . I was the one that was told by the doctors that I couldn’t have any children after I lost my daughter. However, 9 months after the Holy Spirit Conference in Hamilton I gave birth to a healthy daughter. I believe the Holy Spirit healed me and blessed me. God bless you both from me and my family. Love always ~ Bunty Karan (formerly of Fiji, now living in Wanganui, NZ).
If one-tenth of Christ’s great preachers in this world teaches like you put it, this planet earth would turn around overnight. May the good Lord bless the work of your hands and ministry ~ Bison M. Paraffin (Nsanje, Malawi).
I just want to thank you so much because, being a young man of 24 in ministry, I fear a lot to tell people what God is saying about them; but since reading your books, “Developing Prophetic Ministry,” “God Wants To Set Your Future Up!” and “The School Of The Holy Spirit”, ministry has become less burdensome to me. So Daddy, once again I say, May God bless you and you ministry. ~ Rev. Sefadzi Adisu-Kuwadah (Denu, Ghana).
Testimonies From a Kenya Prison:
It is interesting to know that a wonderful work of God is taking place within the prisons of Kenya. The authorities desire that every prisoner in Kenya (over 55,000) go through The GFM Bible Courses as they have seen such positive changes in the lives of those several thousands who have already been through the Courses (they are in the King James Version of the Bible). This ministry is headed up by Pastor Peter Ndegwa (Nairobi) who does a great work of visiting the prisons and distributing Lessons, books and Bibles for the inmates to go through the Courses and also get established in the faith of Jesus Christ. Prisoners have also been trained to mark the Lessons of other inmates. Please keep this ministry in your prayers. Thank you ~ Rodney W. Francis.
Praise the Lord! My name is Aggrey Mmbayi Injaga. I entered in to prison as a sinner. I used to rob people of their properties, but after I was arrested and imprisoned, God through His saving grace and unmerited favour, saved me. After I was saved The GFM materials were brought in to Kamiti Maximum Prison where currently I am detained. When I went through these Courses I came to learn more about Jesus and these Lessons helped me to go through the Bible; I have covered “The Gospel of John”, “The Book of Ephesians”, and “Divine Healing”. The Lessons brought the thirst and zeal to read the Bible and enlightened me. The Lessons have been of great importance and helped my spiritual maturity. I have also learned more about divine healing and the benefit we get through the word of God. The books I got, such as “Counseling and Deliverance” and “Bible Basics” have helped me much. Thanks a lot, Rodney Francis and The GFM Ministry Team as the work you have done in my life is awesome. The GFM Lessons and gifts of Rodney’s books have equipped me to minister and evangelize better to my fellow inmates. Let me say the books (which came along while graduating) are very good and beneficial in ministry work. Real transformation is realized through these Lessons and the only effective transformation in a person’s life is when a person changes on the inside and outside. When the heart of a person changes, transformation takes place. God bless all who are involved in making possible these Lessons that are reaching many people, especially prisoners. Yours in Christ’s Service ~ Aggrey Mmbayi Injage (GFM Co-ordinator, Kamiti Maximum Prison).
My name is Michael Mutisya Kamei. Jesus is my personal Saviour! These Courses of The Gospel Faith Messenger Ministry made me to learn more from the Lessons on “The Gospel of John”, “The Book of Ephesians” and “Divine Healing”. These Lessons helped me to study the Bible using the King James Bible and to get the answer to the questions. I have learned a lot from the three Rodney Francis books donated to me, together with The GFM Certificates of Completion. I have learned a lot from the “Bible Basics” manual ~ topics about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, Holy Communion, etc. I am now strong in my journey of faith in God. I recommend these Lessons, King James Bibles and pens to be taken across prisons in our country Kenya as they are a great tool for changing inmates’ lives and also help to cut recidivzm (“the tendency of a convicted criminal to reoffend”). May our good Lord provide the resources needed to make these Lessons reach many prison inmates. ~ Michael Mutisya Kamei (Kamiti Maximum Security Prison, Nairobi, Kenya).
My name is Samuel Wafula Wanyonyi. It is my great privilege to testify about The GFM Bible Course Lessons, how they have transformed my life, and are changing others’ lives as well. The Lessons started as rain drops and ended as a flood. When I underwent these Courses, especially “The Gospel of John”, it enabled me to study through that book; and it inspired my life as I was answering the questions relating to lives of other people and how Jesus ministered to them. As I was to drug addiction The GFM Bible Courses have made me addicted to reading the word of God ~ and the most inspired books like “Counselling and Deliverance” on how to deal with peoples’ lives, and to solve others problems.
The “Bible Basics” manual is one of the most interesting manuals, with titles that help one to grow spiritually. I am interested in the manner these Bible Courses are being run. Simply they have been brought to us inmates through the leadership of Pastor Peter Ndegwa. This has helped me personally to engage in the work of the ministry and how to manage and keep following up people. Through these Courses I am one of the markers. When I received a letter from the Founder of The GFM Ministry Rodney Francis, I felt like I have been released from prison. It was a great motivation, not only in me but to my other fellow inmates ~ and also to my family members. Through these Courses I have continued practicing reading the Bible. Thank you for these Lessons. They have inspired me to study the Bible and also seek to get others involved. May the Lord bless you as you continue to make these Lessons reach many prisons. ~ Samuel Wafula Wanyonyi (Kamiti Medium Prison, Nairobi, Kenya).
My name is Teddy Wawire Odera. I am an alumni (“former student”) of The Gospel Faith Messenger Bible Correspondence Courses. I am now in Nairobi Kamiti Medium Prison. I joined The GFM Bible Courses in 2015 while in a prison in Rift Valley (part of our country’s Naivasha Maximum Prison). Through The GFM Bible Courses and reading Rodney’s books, “An Encounter With God”, “Counselling and Deliverance” and “Bible Basics” manual I have learned to surrender my life to the Holy Spirit to guide me. I am now better placed to enjoy the blessings of God through submission, obedience and faithfulness. There is one thing that I learned that hinders Christians from knowing the will of God in their lives. It is the lack of knowing or reading the word of God. These Bible Courses helped me when I was in the Maximum Prison before I was transferred to serve a few years in Nairobi Kamiti Medium Prison, where I am now looking forwards to be set free. We thank all who have sacrificed their money through The Gospel Faith Messenger Ministry and enabling these Lessons to reach many prisons in Kenya. We also thank Pastor Peter Ndegwa who has voluntary given his time to see the Lessons, King James Bibles, books and pens reach the inmates. This is a worthy cause which has brought much impact to many lives across our prisons. ~ Teddy Wawire Odera
Dear Brother, I am totally delighted and very happy for what God is doing. It is really amazing what God can do when He lives in those He uses to fulfil His purpose and will. This is the voice of God speaking across the nations and God wants to bring total transformation. I have just returned from a long trip in many areas and my heart is blessed and inspired when I witness how people have changed as they have embraced the message in the books. Those who were fortunate enough to have gone through “The School Of The Holy Spirit” and have received other titles, a firm foundation is laid and the new structure is going up. Many churches which were teaching against speaking in tongues have totally changed their tune and now are listening to voice of God. Much resistance is coming from mainstream churches, mostly in city centres. They have been the major hindrances in some regions. We have not given up but are soldiering on. We shall keep you and the Team in our continuous prayers. ~ Charles Wanyonyi Mwanda (Senior Pastor King Jesus Worship Center, Mombasa, Kenya). (Charles and his wife, Justine, are the major distributors of Rodney’s books that are printed in Mombasa, Kenya).
Greetings! It is my greatest thanks for what God has done to us. Yesterday (9th July 2015) our local chief came to me holding a book “The School of the Holy Spirit”. He told me that he was forced to start reading the book (which he had confiscated from church members thinking it was of bad teaching). He had been told the book is a devil's material. After withholding the book for two months, last Sunday when he went to his local church and the pastor started preaching, his daughter who always carries his church Bible and note books was seated next to him, and when the pastor asked members to take out their Bibles and lift them up, his daughter unknowingly took the book "The School Of The Holy Spirit" and without even feeling its largeness nothing entered her mind that it was not the Bible. She was blinded by the power of the Holy Spirit. When the pastor saw the large book he asked the girl if what she was holding was a Bible ~ and when the chief looked he saw it was the book that he had confiscated and kept in his bedroom ~ he took the book from the daughter, but the pastor insisted to have a look at the book (something which had never been done before). The sermon was instantly interrupted and the chief gave out the book. When the pastor opened the book immediately something struck him and he started speaking in tongues and half of the church started speaking in tongues and the whole services was a revival. It is now a story in our location. The chief came with a book to me and asked for forgiveness. Right now he is encouraging people to study and pray. May the Name of God be praised for what is happening with these books. ~ Overseer Sylivia Kakawanga (Kilifi, Kenya).
Greetings, God is so good this morning to have made it possible for me to e-mail you. I cannot have enough words to thank God for the immense work the book “The School of The Holy Spirit” has done in our 32 centres . It is an amazing testimony that people who could never speak in tongues can now rightly speak and prophesy. The churches which were totally against anything to do with change have now seen what God is doing through those who accepted the truth of prophecy and now they are humbling themselves. When a child of one elder (who was the leader of critics) was very sick and was in dire need of help in the middle of the night called his neighbour asking for a motor-bike to take his son to hospital. When the neighbour picked up the call he gave no positive response but instead directed him to call a motor-bike rider who was a worship leader in one of the leading prophetic ministries.
It was terrible for this old man, because the rider had been on his number one list as a wanted man who (he believed) has converted people into a devil worshipping ministry speaking words people could not understand (tongues). But after being convinced by his wife and seeing the condition of his son, he finally called the worship leader who immediately responded and within five minutes was in the house of this old man.
Immediately he knocked on the door the old man opened with shame all over his face. The worship leader went straight to where the boy was laying and started speaking in tongues; and the boy called and asked for food and that was it. Healed!
Such stories and many other miracles are spreading like fire and many are asking how they can get books. Please this is an opportunity and the only time that God is using books to reach out to His own. Please do something because the old man and his friends are daily asking for Swahili books. ~ Bishop Mary Mayama (Webuye, Kenya).
I am E-Mailing because of what just happened in December (24th) with the book “The School Of The Holy Spirit”. I am one of the pastors in this area which has about 200 churches and it happened that one Pastor, Emanuel, just changed the way he programmes and runs the church. I have been trying to find out what happened as his church now speaks in tongues and even young children give prophecies, something never seen here ever before. But yesterday (1st Feb. 2016), when I visited his church to minister, I was totally shocked how God speaks and how the whole church exercises spiritual giftings. When I tried to inquire the pastor just gave me the book “The School Of The Holy Spirit”. I have gone through the book and everybody here is just crying to have a copy. Imagine in this area: this is the first book ever, just one copy. Please help us to get books for the people of God. This is what nobody should never miss if he wants to grow and have the right direction of his ministry. Please add me to your E-Mails. ~ Bishop Faith Kariuki (Tala, Kenya).
Dear Servant of God, I am the overseer of Church of God Ministries Kenya. I came across your ministry last week when my friend from Kisumu gave me his book authored by you "THE SCHOOL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT”. When I went through the book yesterday I shared the content with our council and we have concluded that the book is an important tool in changing the whole system of our preaching and to destroy what missionaries had built in this ministry. We had been long thinking of when and how we do this until I came across this book. So we have decided to give the printing papers worth 320,000 Kenya Shillings (approx. $NZ4,725.00 or $US3,135.00) for the printing of the book. The papers had been donated to us from Dubai. We can happily give out the papers with the hope that we shall be given as good number of books since we have 340 churches under our ministry and each church has a good number of those ready to start. Please let me know as soon as possible so that I may answer and see how we can plan our distribution of the books. ~ Rev. Benard Kaningu (Church of God Ministry, Kenya). (6,000 copies have been printed, and this Church Movement continues to supply paper and ink for more printings for distribution in other places in East Africa).
I am so happy that on Saturday I received 240 copies of the much-awaited manuals of “School Of The Holy Spirit.” Already 178 leaders have taken copies to their churches. It takes a big heart to bring anything to us here. I understand why it has to take long since very few buses come our way and the network for mobile phones is very poor here. So getting these books is the work of God. The growth of The GFM teaching here is just so big, and we are witnessing the kind of services that we had never seen. The teachings in the churches are best, mostly on what we are learning. May God bless you all. ~ Senior Pastor Anet (Kilifi, Kenya).
I thank God for the recent visit of Justine (wife of Pastor Charles Mwanda) to our church. It was a big blessing as we had a wonderful teaching and learning how to listen to and hear the voice of God. Nothing was so joyful as people who could not speak in tongues began speaking in tongues. Also we had some leaders who were critical of the ministry of prophecy and speaking in tongues and were completely changed and gave testimonies. The “School of the Holy Spirit” manual (which we received last week) are just amazingly a big blessing as it has been an eye-opener to many who could not understand how the Holy Spirit functions. I have heard that Pastor Dick is in the process of reprinting the “Equipping For Leadership” book. That is a big thanks, as we have been waiting for more of these books. In His Service ~ Pastor Emanuel Wasike Otukai (Kimilili, Kenya).
I am very excited with what God has done to have enabled me to get your book "The School Of The Holy Spirit". This is not just a miracle but a big miracle for such a gift of books to such very poor people. I am among the few Christian leaders who have been doing evangelism house-to-house and teaching from house-to-house.
Through this book the work of the Gospel is going on very well. Some of the villages here lack a single Bible. Now these books are helping in training and upbringing of new leaders. Please if it is possible we need more of the books to reach so many that did not get. ~ Missionary Kuhu Asilwa (USIAd Cordinator, Power House Ministry, Wahu, South Sudan).
|Dear Brother, It is of great love that God has enabled us. Please I am E-mailing you, having the need of prayer for the need we have for books. God is doing what very few ever believed could happen. On Monday (12th September 2016) before I left a camp in Somali two right-wing militants had joined the Christian cell in a secret house situated in an Amason Camp. This is the most successful step ever in Somali. They accepted Jesus, after they got a book “School Of The Holy Spirit” in a house which they had raided and burnt down; the few things they stole the book was among them. One of them decided to read the book in his free time and that is when he was convicted and shared with his friends who came in the camp desiring more of prayers and change. Please pray that we may receive more books for greater mission in Somalia. ~ Apostle Jesse Omar (Kenya).|
Dear Rodney, “School Of The Holy Spirit” manuals teach us to recognize the voice of the Holy Spirit, understand Who He is, what He does and how He desires to communicate with us. The Holy Spirit was given to empower the Church to win the lost. As Believers we need the fire of God to fulfil the Great Commission and move in the power of the Holy Spirit.
“School of the Holy Spirit” releases us to operate in the gifts and ministries in the power of the Spirit, with Holy Spirit boldness and confidence; we have learnt a lot from the manuals. We had practical sessions, and participants are encouraged to step out and practice the gifts of the Holy Spirit in a safe, secure environment.The whole book is so Holy Spirit-orientated that there is real freedom from the very beginning.
40 of our staff members, including managers, attended the workshop facilitated By Rev. Jones Chamangwana (The GFM Representative in Malawi). Since then we have lots of testimonies of people being challenged by the word of God. I was encouraged that so many sensed God leading them into new areas of ministry. We believe many people have grasped the freedom and truth of ‘The GFM Ministry’ because we have preached on it. They need a safe space and time to understand and use the gifts given by the Spirit; as well as the teaching that accompanies The GFM Ministry. I fully recommend the “School Of The Holy Spirit” as an opportunity to encounter God afresh. We have shared the books in our community and all our regional offices for free distribution ~ Henry (“World Vision,” Malawi).
Impact of Books :
Dear Servants of God, I would like to inform you that a lot has been happening here after Prophetic Ministry started. Muslims have started distributing a lot of Islamic materials, setting up tables on every street and reaching out almost to everybody walking on the street. This is a wake-up call to us to stop this highly planned move to stop Prophetic Ministry and the Gospel. They are doing these things after seeing the “School Of The Holy Spirit” manual in one of their own houses. Since no Christian book has ever been seen in this district it was like a thunderbolt for them and they held a meeting on how to stop Christianity. It is my prayer that we have books as soon as possible to help us strengthen our people so that they may not fall to Islamic ways. ~ Apostle Betty Ndinti (Wajir, Kenya). (29th January, 2018).
Greetings, May Our Lord God bless you in a big way. We have now started two new study centers which is hosting three days per week those who are going through books, speaking in tongues and giving prophecy. Most of the Christians who are attending in these two were sent away from their church ~ the reason being the churches don't allow anything to do with speaking in tongues or power in the Holy Spirit. God is doing a new thing in this country and its very inspiring to be part of it. ~ Brother Gabriel Singarimana (Apostolic Ministry, Kahi, Umutara Province, Rwanda). (1st February, 2018).
Dear Brother, It is beyond human comprehension of what God is doing through your books which we got last year. At least people can have something to read for them to grow spiritually and prophetically. God's time is the best and it came when he used you to bring books for us. It is exciting that thousands can now sit in groups every Thursday and Saturday to pray and speak in tongues and give prophecy. Peace is with us for the past three month because of prophetic prayers. WE ARE NOW WAITING FOR OUR LARGE GATHERING ONCE AGAIN TO BE IMPACTED AND THOUSANDS BE REACHED. ~ Pastor Patrick Egiringe (Ulang and Nasir District, South Sudan). (4th February, 2018).
Dear Rodney, I am glad God has brought us this far. He is Faithful and Loving. It is now the order of every Sunday and every service that people speak in tongues and give prophecy. We are proud to be part of this GFM ministry. Many churches and believers are eager to have books in order to be part of this ministry. God is manifesting Himself in a big way. The prophetic change is so powerful, diminishing every force against the truth. ~ Sister Veronicah Khaikwa (Chief Secretary, Divine Congregations, Webuye, Kenya). (20th February, 2018).
Dear Man of God, I have no words to thank God for your ministry. I am among those that received your books during last year's conference here in Burundi. It has resulted in 23 churches being reformed, and the power of the Holy Spirit is at work. It has never been seen before in Burundi to get the whole church speaking in tongues and giving prophecy. It is an experience never seen. Mine is to say thank you. Much thanks ~ Goddy Sijarafani (Army of The Lord Ministry, Burundi). (23rd February, 2018).
Dear Brother, May God bless you for being our father in the faith concerning prophetic ministry. Yesterday two witches who had refused to confess their deeds were ambushed by a mass of people who wanted to kill them with stones. They ran and took refuge in our congregation during prophetic prayers when all were speaking in tongues. When they entered they were afraid and fear was all over their faces. I stood out at the door and requested the mob to forgive them and allow them to change. When the mob of people left, immediately the witches knelt down, confessed and received salvation. This is a mile-stone of what God is doing in prophetic ministry. Everybody is amazed at the working of GOD THROUGH THE WRITTEN WORD. Much Thanks. Blessings. ~ Apostle Dazakelo Omwami (Tanga, Tanzania). (25th February, 2018).
We send our greetings to you hoping that you are fine in the Lord Jesus Christ? We are glad to inform you that your teachings have been so encouraging to us in our Bible School and many people have changed. God bless ~ Rev. James and Rose Midenga (Kisumu, Kenya). (1st March, 2018).
Dear Rodney, I am so happy for the books that we received on Wednesday which were brought by Pastor Dick from Kenya. I am a soldier in the Amision Peace Keepers in Somali. I have been asked by my colleagues to thank you for the 5,000 copies of “Developing Prophetic Ministry” which we received and are being distributed. The meeting was attended by all the soldiers and humanitarian officials. This is very powerful. As we move in the field we need your prayers of protection as these books are being the only tool to bring peace in this country. God has a reason for these books in this country. We as front line men, we understand the importance of these books. ~ Orposhim Joseph (Northern Camp, Somali). (Received 3rd March, 2018).
Brother, it is like a thunderstorm to have received books for my friends and family. It is a miracle come true! Through reading “Developing Prophetic Ministry” book we have deeper insight of what God requires of us. The book is going to be our great partner. This is because we cannot dare go public with Christian books unless we want death. We believe in the Bible but never have we been reached with books or Bibles until recently when I attended the Mogadish meeting. I was blessed to be in the camp where the meeting took place. Please add me to your contacts although it is so hard to communicate in this country. No internet connection in most places. We need God's protection. ~ Zaikhe Msidanyi (South Jubaland, Somali). (Received 6th March, 2018).
Hi Rodney, It’s really good to hear from you, hope you’re keeping well. We are continually refreshed in our endeavours here in Llanelli (Wales) when we talk together about your prophetic words over us back in 1997 about “pioneering new concepts of ministry”; it has been an anchor when others have challenged, questioned or sown doubt. We frequently remember you in our prayers of thanks giving. We also teach people how to hear Holy Spirit just as you taught us...... you have a legacy here in West Wales ???? Thank you for all you do, have done and will continue to do. Be blessed my friend ~ Pastor Bill Chapman (Llanelli, Wales). (Received 10th March, 2018).
Dear Rodney, I am really happy and blessed to be part of this ministry. In my region today we met 23 churches which have become prophetic. Speaking in tongues and giving prophecy is daily order. This is a big miracle ~ Bishop Joel Okaka (Kwale, Kenya). (Received 12th March, 2018).
Dear Rev. Rodney and brothers, God has done it today. We had a first day of our district prophetic impartation meeting and I was shocked and thankful to God for witnessing over 100 people speaking in tongues and prophesying. This has never happened and nobody thought will ever happen in Chwele. During this season many people who heard what God was doing came from their farms and we had conversions of 65 people. They gave their lives to Christ. This is a big miracle. God is at work through prophetic books. ~ Bishop Tito Makhanu (Glory Church Center, Chwele, Kenya). (Received 25th March, 2018).
Dear Brother, I am blessed today that God has brought us this far. We are witnessing miracles through speaking in tongues and giving prophecy never seen before. People are getting salvation; diseases are being healed in a way I cannot tell. Last Sunday two men were healed; one from stomach ulcers which had eaten him for 7 years; another was healed from abnormal urine which had made him lonely; nobody ever wanted to associate with him. This is God. Many are imagining how powerful is the written word. ~ Pastor Gilbert Oranga Wekesa (House Of Prayer Center, Pokoti, Kenya). (Received 28th March, 2018).
Brother, I lack enough words to say thank you. I have travelled for 4 hours to get to the nearest cyber cafe where I could e-mail you and tell you I am so happy, and my people are blessed to have your books. These are the first-ever books seen in this place. We are happy that we are going to lay a foundation based on prophetic ministry. We have now moved from dark to light. I was given 98 books. Please add me to your friends. ~ Apostle Flusham Machar (Mundri West, Sudan). (Received 1st April, 2018).
Today we held the biggest government official prophetic 7 hours seminar, never seen before in the District of Alghazal. Bringing together two opposing sides was a big breakthrough. GFM has done it again. Two Heads of Districts brought Government Officials for a Prophetic Impartation prayer time. This is history that 124 men and women accepted to receive the Holy Spirit and spoke in tongues. They promised to impart the same to their juniors. God is surely awesome. ~ Apostle Degdan Ogorepo (Darfur, Southern Sudan). (Received 11th April, 2018).
The first day we received your books was the day we began to slowly recover from our darkness. Actually, your books have made our eyes to start seeing the truth Of God. May God bless you as you reach many souls around the world. We have also received amazing testimonies from Pastors who have read your books. ~ Pastor Rael Odongo and her Team of 48 Pastors ("Seekers Of His Face Ministry", Eldoret, Kenya). (Received 12th January 2018).
Your ministry through books has made our faith to become stronger, and our love for God has increased tremendously. I thank God because through your ministry many eyes (including mine) have been opened so as to see "the riches of his glorious inheritance in us" and also to His love for us. I'm a Local Missionary/Overseer who is ministering mainly in rural areas here in Turbo with more than 17 churches under me. ~ Martin Leakey (Turbo, Kenya). (Received 12th January, 2018).
I would like to inform you that our Lord has opened doors through prophetic teachings and miracle manifestations to plant the first church in a Muslim dominated village. It is through the Grace of God when a prophetic word came to be true on an Islamic tuberculosis ailing Islamic council chief. His family had used a lot of money for his healing in vain. They had just arrived from Tanzania visiting a traditional medicine man, but the ailment was still high. When one of our group members spoke a word of prophecy she prophesied of an old man with tuberculosis to be brought in for prayers. Very interestingly the man with his daughter were just passing by the house and heard repeatedly of the call, his daughter forced him to the house where we were praying. Immediately we laid hands on him and he was instantly healed. The following day he came testifying of what God had done and offered us a large piece of land to start a new church. Today we had the first church meeting with 36 new converts. This is a big miracle. ~ Bishop Joel Okaka (Kwale, Kenya). (Received 12th January, 2018)
The books we received last year have done what no preacher has ever done in this village since creation. People have come to the knowledge of the word of God and are now realizing the deep secret things of God spiritually. ~ Prophet Gabriel Bangeliwa (Apostolic Mission, Northern Al Gazal, South Sudan). (Received 26th January, 2018).
It is beyond human comprehension of what God is doing through your books which we got last year. At least people can have something to read for them to grow spiritually and prophetically. God's time is the best and it came when he used you to bring books for us. It is exciting that thousands can now sit in groups every Thursday and Saturday to pray and speak in tongues and give prophecy. ~ Pastor Patrick Egiringe (Ulang and Nasir District, South Sudan). (Received 4th February, 2018).
I am among those that received your books during last year's conference here in Burundi. It has been all through reformation in 23 churches and the power of the Holy Spirit is at work. It has never been seen before in Burundi to get the whole church speaking in tongues and giving prophecy. It is an experience never seen. Much thanks ~ Goddy Sijarafani (Army of The Lord Ministry, Burundi). (Received 23rd February, 2018).
Yesterday two witches who had refused to confess their deeds were ambushed by a mass of people who wanted to kill them with stones. They ran and took refuge in our congregation during prophetic prayers when all were speaking in tongues. When they entered they were afraid and fear was all over their faces. I stood out at the door and requested the mob to forgive them and allow them to change. When the mob of people left, immediately the witches knelt down, confessed and received salvation. This is a mile-stone of what God is doing in prophetic ministry. Everybody is amazed at the working of God through the written word. ~ Apostle Dazakelo Omwami (Tanga, Tanzania). (Received 25th February, 2018).
We are glad to inform you that your teachings have been so encouraging to us in our Bible School and many people have changed. God bless ~ Rev. James and Rose Midenga (Kisumu, Kenya). (Received 1st March, 2018).

The printer, Pastor Dickson Tonny (Mombasa, Kenya) said this about the books: “I thank Almighty Father for this far He has enabled The GFM to reach. It was beyond our expectation to see a big number of churches and leaders having a great hunger for The GFM books. When first started we never anticipated this, and what we are seeing is God-ordained. To change the perception of men and women is very hard, but through such a unique miracle of Rodney’s books the focus of many has changed. There is now a new thinking and believing towards prophecy and speaking in tongues. Such is not because Rodney brought the books free but it is because God is willing to reach His people. Many books have been given ~ authored by other ministers ~ but have never been desired or liked like The GFM books.Daily we are receiving requests for more books like “Developing Prophetic Ministry”, “Voices, Worms And The Prophetic Ministry”, “Some God Happenings In My Life”, and “The Urgency Of The Hour!” etc. ~ Dick.
One very powerful testimony was when Sister Kathy from Kwale who did not have any desire to read the book, “The ‘Dunamis’ Power of God!” and had kept it in her purse carrying it unknowingly wherever she went. On Monday this week (1st June, 2015) ~ when she had just come out of a public service bus and standing on the bus station waiting for the motorbike rider to take her to her house ~ she saw people carrying a young man who was unconscious and bleeding from the mouth. The people who were with him were unbelievers; they came to her as they did not know how to help the young man (who was her cousin). She checked in her purse to take out a phone, but what came out was the book "The ‘Dunamis’ Power Of God!" She didn't even understand the meaning of dunamis, but she repeated those words loudly: "The ‘Dunamis’ Power Of God!” In The name Of Jesus Heal this Brother!" She repeated several times and the most amazing of all is the man coughed, stood up and the bleeding stopped. People followed her, for they wanted that miracle book, thinking the book was a magic book. She took those unbelievers to her pastor who explained to them about Jesus. Almost the whole community is now joining the church because of the miracle. This is just one of many miracles. ~ Bishop Charles Wanyonyi Mwanda (King Jesus Worship Centre, Mombasa, Kenya ~ Charles is one of the main GFM workers in Kenya, who does a marvellous job of distributing Rodney’s books there).
When my son (who was a drug addict and outlaw in the society) came one day in March with the book called the “School Of The Holy Spirit”, I was so mad at him because it was so dangerous for one to be found with any Christian material. But after I realized that it was a Christian book I asked God to use it to change my son. I left him alone. Last week (Tuesday) when I was sweeping the house I heard some noise from the boy’s room which I could not understand. I stood outside the room confused. After ten minutes the noise went quiet and then I knocked at the door. It opened and my son stood their sweating. He told me that after going through the book he started feeling something speaking to him in a silent voice. On that day, when he was about to go out for a robbery venture, he decided to pray for safety during the robbery because most of his friends had been killed doing the same. But when he started praying something overcame him and he was swept to another world. In fact he did not know that he was speaking in tongues. My son immediately confessed and completely changed! Yesterday he was baptized. I lack words to thank God for changing my son. Through the testimony hundreds are requesting for the book. ~ Sister Carolyne Khadija (Kaloleni, Kenya). (Received 14th May, 2016)
l have received the book you sent me (“Some God Happenings In My Life”). Again I went home and read your book last night. Few days back I was moved to tears and wept profusely for my unsaved family members as well as for other lost people in general so I was still very burdened and kept praying for an open door to witness to someone. I went to the Young Men’s Christian Association -YMCA - to pick up a son. While I was waiting for him, I noticed that the lady sitting next to me was nervously wringing her hands. Moved with compassion, I began to talk with her. She opened up about some very difficult problems she is facing. By God's grace, the conversation turned naturally to the Lord. After a substantial discussion when l showed her this book and read passages from it, she readily admitted that she was a lost sinner in need of salvation. With tears streaming down her face, she confessed those sins to Jesus Christ and received Him as her Saviour. What a blessing. Thanks so much for this book you shared with me!"~ Sister Debila Oliw (Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria).
We are very thankful for your website! Thank you so much for spreading the TRUE Word of God to the nations! To date we have wonderful “Bible Basics” manuals from The GFM and I would like to let you know that we are very pleased with the manuals. Thank you for being available to those who are searching for the Lord Jesus Christ. May God add to you more knowledge of the Holy Spirit to give us more revelations by the Spirit of God to inspire His people around the world.~ World Vision staff (Malawi) (10,000 copies of “Bible Basics” manual were recently printed in Malawi).
I do appreciate what God has been doing and it is a great blessing to see how imparting are your books to the Body of Christ. The power bestowed upon the“School Of The Holy Spirit” manual is so immense and very revealing. I truly thank God for every effort put in and every contribution done towards this very cause. It is not easy (unless just a miracle) for the community of Christianity to sit down to study a book and then start practicing what is in it. This is surely God's doing. 21 churches within our association are fully working in the Giftings of the Holy Spirit. The set-up start groups have grown into nine small Prophetic Cell Groups which are functioning in Prophetic Ministry and, through that, miracles (which have never been witnessed here) are being seen. In one centre a three-year-old child was fully healed from spinal defection which had bedridden him for one year, and a lady who was not even a leader, spoke a prophetic word, touched the child and healing took place. We thank God for His doing. ~ Pastor Evans Walukana (Kamukuywa, Kenya).
I came across your book,“Divine Healing ~ A Key To The Growth Of The Christian Church”! I was given this book by my church member and it is a book that carries the anointing and power of God. I have three testimonies - by sharing with people this book they have received healing. One person was healed of a stomach ulcer; the second was healed of back pain, and the third from severe head pain. After reading with them this book they believed, and as I prayed with them they received total healing. Your name is walking in our villages in a very mighty way and I, and many people are interested to receive more teachings from you. Your Brother in Christ ~ Bishop David Wakoli ("Ebenezer International Gospel Churches," Kenya).
I am very happy to testify that God is doing great things in the ministry of prophecy. Nothing can stop what God desires to do. Yesterday was the first service ever where the giftings of the Holy Spirit were fully in operation. I was amazed to see the whole church speaking in tongues. It was a miracle to all who attended and to the new believers who could not even understand, but all spoke in tongues. Rodney, things have completely changed and taken a new dimension; our Sunday Service has changed and it is being only led by God through prophecy and the working of the Holy Spirit. The Manual, “The School Of The Holy Spirit” has a lot to reveal to believers and once it is put into practice things change. Thanks very much for accepting to be used by God in such a big way. ~ Pastor Mourine Wekesa (Kwale, Kenya).
I am E-Mailing because of what just happened in December (24th) with the book “The School Of The Holy Spirit”. I am one of the pastors in this area which has about 200 churches and it happened that one Pastor, Emanuel, just changed the way he programmes and runs the church. I have been trying to find out what happened as his church now speaks in tongues and even young children give prophecies, something never seen here ever before. But yesterday (1st Feb. 2016), when I visited his church to minister, I was totally shocked how God speaks and how the whole church exercises spiritual giftings. When I tried to inquire the pastor just gave me the book “The School Of The Holy Spirit”. I have gone through the book and everybody here is just crying to have a copy. Imagine in this area: this is the first book ever, just one copy. Please help us to get books for the people of God. This is what nobody should never miss if he wants to grow and have the right direction of his ministry. ~ Bishop Faith Kariuki (Tala, Kenya).
We are very happy and daily praying that our Lord God continues to sustain you and The GFM Ministry and the Team that stands with you. We are very much blessed with the copies of books we have so far received: “The School Of The Holy Spirit” and “Voices, Worms and The Prophetic Ministry”. On Sunday we witnessed an overwhelming flow of the Holy Spirit which allowed even people as old as 75 years to speak in tongues; the instance never seen before. A little girl of 16 years stood up and gave a prophecy of how God wants to use Brother Rodney in a very new way to transform God's people and churches in Kenya. God has done a very new thing that people can humble and listen to the voice of prophecy, even from the young girl. Churches here are now talking in a new dimension that are bringing spiritual transformation in a big way. We pray that these teachings keep on without stopping. New people are joining at very high speed. ~ Rev. Margaret Liambila (Kitale, Kenya).
Months back l went to a local church near my village to worship God. As l made my way out of the door of the church l noticed scattered near the exit door of the church was a table filled with books; some l picked up and discovered among these books were printed papers from your website: www.gospel.org.nz At that time l was quite ignorant of the way of salvation and knew nothing of my own lost life. Those printed papers were so used of God to my good that my eyes were opened to God. I was led to the Bible and, I believe, the Lord through it. And now my family and I have a great desire to read whatever other materials of yours since we have none. Those printed papers were also used to change the life of my brother, who was unhappily getting beyond my poor mother’s power to control, which was very painful to my poor mother. ~ Sister Fayose Fayo (Benin City, Edo State, Nigeria).
Thanks so much for the books, “Developing Prophetic Ministry.” They are the greatest help I have ever found in my ministry. The churches here are so happy that God has done it again. Brother Rodney, may God bless you and all the members of The GFM Ministry. We shall come to the PES in Nairobi in August. We really need books of “School Of The Holy Spirit” in big numbers here as the numbers are swelling daily. ~ Denis Ballock (Salvation Army, Moi's Bridge, Kenya).
We are so grateful to God for The GFM to minister to us as a family and the nation through correspondences, books and tracts. There is joy in the journey of ministering. I have known Rodney Francis from my youth and am delighted to say I am what am today because of The GFM. Your challenges to us demonstrate the love of God through our lives and a success for Malawi. You brought to us many powerful prophetic messages of salvation and tremendous encouragement into our lives. All what l heard from you l preach to my people. May God continue to bless you more abundantly. Congratulations for 50 years in ministry in The GFM. With love ~ Pastor Jones & Rhodas Chamangwana (Balaka, Malawi – The GFM representatives in Malawi). (Jones went through The GFM Bible Courses when 16 years old).
Bula vinaka, Mr and Mrs Francis. Praise God for your book, “Some God Happenings In My Life”. I stayed up till 2.30 a.m. to finish reading it, and tears were just running down my face after God spoke to me through the testimonies and some of your comments (“It is not until we obey that we see the works of the Holy Spirit unfolded in us”). I pray that God will supply His gifts in His time to help me in ministering to my relatives. Right now, it’s just encouragement and edification from the Word (Bible). May our ALMIGHTY FATHER continue showering His blessings and opening doors to enlarge your territory in ministering to lost souls and edifying Christians and taking them to another level in knowing God. Praise God for you all…… ~ Venina Bukateci (Lautoka, Fiji Islands).
God bless you, Rodney and Jean Francis. I just want to say how deeply thankful I am to you, your wife, your family and ministry and how much you have impacted my personal walk with God. My Christian experience has been empowered and enriched through your testimonies, books and videos. I am beginning to realize experientially how vital hearing, walking and living by the voice of God is. I believe God is going to multiply the seed of your ministry through my life here in Papua New Guinea exponentially. Thank you, and God be ever with you and your household. ~ William Muap (Kavieng, Papua New Guinea).
I feel a great sense of excitement at completing these Bible Correspondence Course Lessons. Yet I also feel a great sense of emptiness. I am going to really miss doing these Lessons. Until now, I did not realize how much. But, as I have said before, I will engulf myself in your teachings continuously via every mode available. Your Ministry has breathed into me a greater understanding of my relationship with Jesus Christ and of the boundless opportunities that come with it. My faith and confidence have increased tremendously since I began with you. I am more excited than ever before to live for and to serve Him. THANK YOU! I LOVE YOU ALL!!! ~ Margaret Wheeler (West Monroe, LA., USA).
Dear Rodney, It is my joy to inform you that God is doing great things here. The transformation is enormous that churches are now witnessing true miracles which were never there before. We are seeing a big change in the way the reading habit has grown. It was almost impossible to think that people of different churches could come together and study one common goal. Brother, Now we are praying that this ministry reaches the whole of Kenya in the shortest time possible. The hunger that is growing is just beyond any human understanding. God bless you ~ Minister Charo Mwaringa (Voi, Kenya).
Dear Pastor Rodney and Jean: With all my heart I would like to say thank you so much for covering me in my prophetic calling and mentoring me for God's glory. Both of your lives are God's special gift. We are now using the books that you are sending to us in our discipleship training and for the School of the Holy Spirit. The church is growing so fast ~ last month (September) for only 3 weeks we were able to baptized 100 people, glory to God. I love you both, even though I haven't see you face to face, but your prayers and love encourage me to move on according to my specific calling. Love, ~ Pastor Leanette Jabano (Iloilo, Philippines).
God is doing new things everyday here in Somalia and we are witnessing the unexpected. The threats are so high, killings, murder and rape is the order of the day, but we are standing firm in our secret church cells to spread the good news. My knowing Christ was so miraculous and I have found total peace in following Jesus than blindly following Islam (which is very dangerous indeed and spreading very bad teachings especially to youths). The books from your ministry have awakened thousands who are carrying them in paper bags, and under their shorts and shirts. We need books now more than any other time ever. ~ Evangelist Godfrey Muhamed (but am known here publicly as Issa Muhamed Khaliff). (Somalia).
Thank you for your monthly newsletter the Barnabas Bulletin; it is so amazingly encouraging and, over recent months it has been such a blessing to me concerning different situations in my life! A word from fellow Christians at the right time inspired by the Holy Spirit is such a comfort and inspirational, that it always increases your faith and belief in the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you. Regards ~ Liz Eaton (Dunedin, New Zealand)..
I don't know if you remember me, having been on death row (in prison) when I began your Bible Course Lessons which inspired me to go to college to get a Diploma in World Missions and later on to a university where I got a Bachelor of Theology in Leadership and Practical Theology. I am your product and don't forget me in everything because I am a tool ready to be used here in Zambia, especially in Prison Ministry. ~ Pastor Justine Chanda Mulenga (Chisamba, Zambia).
