Prayer Support Letter 

August 2017

When we stop and consider what is happening through The GFM Ministry we can only give praise and thanks to God for His enabling. None of us realized that from very small beginnings back in April 1964, that this Ministry would grow and grow to impact multiplied thousands, even millions (last year alone over half a million visitors looked at our Website). I cannot help but be reminded of the word the Lord spoke to me when He asked Jean and I to step out and live full-time by faith back at the end of 1999. He said to me: “I want you to resign all your church positions and live full-time by faith with The GFM Ministry. Trust Me with your life and future and I will show you what I can do for you”. It was a very challenging time, but we obeyed God and stepped out into full-time living by faith on 1st January 2000, not asking people to support us. At that time The GFM was going into 55 nations; today we are in at least 230 nations. And the Ministry keeps growing daily. We have been amazed at the way the Lord has kept His promise to us and has provided for us all along the way. There are no debts or mortgages, and every month every bill is paid! We have seen the faithfulness of God and His provision to us. Faith works!

It amazes us at the many testimonies and reports we are receiving of the impact of my books that are being printed and distributed in numbers of nations. They tell of transformed lives, of sovereign infillings of the Holy Spirit, speaking in other tongues and prophesying for the first time in peoples’ lives. Even children are prophesying in meetings, which amazes church leaders as to their accuracy. They have not witnessed anything like that before. All Praise to Jesus!

When we will yield ourselves totally to Jesus, listen to His voice and obey what He tells us, then we will see supernatural happenings of God like never before. It is time for us to “let God be GOD” in our midst so our faith will be strong and enable us to do greater exploits as never before: “The people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits (“a bold or daring feat; to make use of - a resource, etc.; derive benefit from; utilize or take advantage” – Oxford Dictionary) (Daniel 11:32 , NKJV).

  • God will use whoever is available and useable!

  • Every Christian needs to experience something of the supernatural of God working in and through our lives.

  • He is a God of signs, wonders and miracles (see Hebrews 2:1-13 ).

May we all desire more of the miraculous power of God to be clearly demonstrated in these days. God bless you. ~ Rodney W. Francis.



  • For God’s wisdom, discernment and provision for us in The GFM Ministry as we endeavour to keep up with the increasing requests for books, advice, help, etc., that continually come in.

  • Pray for all the wonderful financial supporters who help to make this Ministry what it is today. Without them we could not reach the many thousands of people that we do.

  • For The GFM Bible Correspondence Courses Team, headed up by Dougie and Jackie Hodges and Team, who are processing several thousand students from around the world (all with personal letters each time they send their Lessons in for marking). They do a wonderful ministry in processing the Lessons in the three Bible Courses (John’s Gospel – 19 Lessons, The Book of Ephesians – 7 Lessons and Divine Healing – 12 Lessons).

  • Pray for the ministry and protection of The GFM Website – over 280,000 visitors for the year to date. Many are searching for answers to life.

  • Pray for Dougie and Jackie Hodges of The GFM Hamilton Office who are currently ministering in the Fiji Islands.
