“The Gospel Faith Messenger” Ministry
and Rodney & Jean Francis
Prayer Support Letter
Greetings in the Wonderful and All-Powerful Name of our risen Lord Jesus Christ! How privileged we are to know Jesus in reality and to be able to serve Him and represent Him on the earth in these troublesome times. All Christians need to know that Jesus is still the Answer to all of mankind’s needs and so should be letting our lights shine brightly in a darkened world. In spite of the ongoing breaking- down of society that we hear about in the news ~ and that is going on all around us ~ there are some wonderful things the Holy Spirit is doing in the earth today. In Africa many thousands are coming to a whole new relationship in Jesus Christ through the books that are being printed and distributed there. We are receiving reports of witches repenting and confessing their sins of some horrendous wicked deeds, i.e. sacrificing babies to Satan in Uganda and Tanzania; leaders in Sudan coming under conviction for wrong-doings in holding innocent people in prisons and releasing them (giving them a copy of one of my books as they leave); and of many people being transformed from dead religions through being baptized in the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues and prophesying ~ even young children prophesying in church to the amazement of the leaders. And so we could on. The Holy Spirit makes people realize that Jesus is alive today, and “He is the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8 ). The impact of these happenings is causing many to come to Jesus Christ in a whole new way.
The way God provides for this Ministry continually amazes us. He promised us (at the end of 1999) that if we did what He asks of us, then He would show us what He could do for us. We have experienced God’s faithfulness to His promises day by day ever since. Living by miracle-provision of God is a whole new way to that which we knew before. And The GFM Ministry has continued to grow over that time, enabling us to touch multiplied thousands of lives all around the world. It pays to listen to the voice of God and then do whatever He is asking of us. Then we see something of what our God can do ~ today! All Praise to Him!
Know that you are chosen of God to live in His Victory: “You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world” (1 John 4:4 ). God’s positive promises are endless to those who believe Him! Love and Blessings ~ Rodney W. Francis.
Praise God that Jean and son Mark have been able to develop an online Bible Questionnaire on John’s Gospel (NLT Version). Check it out here:
For the wonderful impact this Ministry is having on thousands of lives in Africa and around the world.
PRAYER FOCUS FOR SEPTEMBER:
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 The GFM International Prayer Team (over 300 members) who faithfully pray for the many requests that come in from around the world. The Prayer Team is co-ordinated by Kathy Nunes-Vaz (Inglewood, New Zealand) who does a wonderful ministry in sending out all the requests.

THOUGHTS: “Faith does not move God, it moves us” – Author Unknown . . . "Don't limit what the Holy Spirit can do in your life. It is dishonouring to God to do nothing, "because I'm just an ordinary nobody." Repent of that negative confession. Focus instead on what the unlimited power of the Holy Spirit can do through your prayers and faith-filled actions!" -Jack Guerin (Waikanae, NZ).
