Prayer Support Letter 

August  2018

 Greetings to you in the All-Powerful Name of Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords! In these days of much turmoil, deception and indifference to the Kingdom of God principles, it is essential for us Christians to know the way and will of God for our daily living. Without His guidance and strength in our life we will surely succumb to the anti-Christ and unbelieving of the Bible that is so noticeable these days. We are called to live a very different life to that of the world. To live in Christ’s victory day after day we need to know that it demands a total commitment of our life to Him so that He is truly Lord of all of our lives. Discipleship is a total yielding of our all to Jesus the Lord. His ways are right, and it is only as we submit to His ways and obey what He asks of us that we are able to overcome all “the wiles of the wicked one” (Ephesians 6:10-20 ). Make no mistake about it: there is a battle raging today for the souls of mankind from the world, the flesh and the devil (see 1 John 2:15-20 ). The key to living in Christ’s Victory is to abide in the anointing of the Holy Spirit ~ that same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead! He now lives inside of every born-again believer on Jesus Christ. Let Him have His way in you! Hallelujah!

Books Ministry: My books continue to make a big impact in a number of nations, especially those nations where books are quite scarce. Many write to tell us that receiving a book from The GFM Ministry is the first book they have ever had. Many do not have Bibles and the Lord is using the books to fill people with the Holy Spirit, speaking in other tongues and prophesying. It is all very new for many of the people. May God open our eyes more and more to see the power of the printed page and what it can accomplish when placed into the hands of hungry people. Here is just one recent report received:  

“I am e-mailing with a heavy heart. I had never known that this could be true. Here in Somali it is a miracle come true. We have been in the dark, walking to hell without anyone to show us the way. Thanks so much for what you have sacrificed for us. We are grateful. We know God has been faithful to us. May Jesus bless your work. Peace which has never been seen can now be felt, because people have started praying, speaking in tongues and giving prophetic words (although very secretively) but God is protecting us” ~ Orposhim Joseph(Northern Camp, Somali).

Together we can make a huge and positive difference in needy nations like Somali. Let us all be active in doing the Master’s business; that of getting His Message out to the nations. It is not too late! God bless you ~ Rodney W. Francis.


  • Matamata and Morrinsville Presbyterian Ministry: “We were blessed to have Rodney and David (Hepworth – from Kapiti Coast) leading our Spiritual Refreshment Seminar at the end of June. This was a lovely weekend of discovery and learning in God. We give thanks that people were touched deeply as they encountered the love of God. Many experienced giving a prophetic word of encouragement for the first time. This blessed them as well. The words used to describe the impact of this weekend were:  encouraging, supportive, profound, enjoyable, challenging, informative. We look forward to seeing the love of God and the continued work of the Holy Spirit amongst us all. Thank you Jesus!!” ~ Sandra Warner (Minister, Morrinsville Presbyterian Church, New Zealand).

  • First ever Prophetic Conference in Arusha, Tanzania: “The conference was so powerful, a lot happened that I could not believe. God moved mightily and touched so many. The desire and demand for the books is overwhelming, God is changing thousands who are coming to the truth. The last day of impartation brought a town to standstill as almost all who attended spoke in tongues and it became like a sea of different waves. May God keep us strong. ~ Pastor Charles Mwanda (King Jesus Ministries, Mombasa, Kenya). (The GFM Ministry provided 5,000 copies of Rodney’s book “Developing Prophetic Ministry” book that were distributed at the Conference).

  • For the printing of Rodney’s manuals, “School Of The Holy Spirit” and “Bible Basics” (5,000 copies of each) for distribution at the Phalura Assemblies Of God Conference (13th-15th July). Special thanks to Phalura AOG Church for paying half the printing costs. Enquiries to: Pastor Jones Chamangwana, E-Mail: This email address is being protected from spambots.

  • For the printing of 2,000 copies of our three Bible Correspondence Courses (total of 38 Lessons) and 2,000 copies of “Bible Basics” manual (in Swahili language) for use in the Kenya Prisons Ministry.

THOUGHTS: "If it is in the Bible, it is so. It's not even to be prayed about. It's to be received and acted upon. Inactivity is a robber which steals blessings. Increase comes by action, by using what we have and know. Your life must be one of going on from faith to faith" ~ Smith Wigglesworth . . . “Religion resists change while revelation requires it” ~ David Tait (Webuye, Kenya) . . . "If we once get above our Bibles, and cease making the written Word of God sole rule both as to faith and practice, we shall soon lie open to all manner of delusion, and be in great danger of making shipwreck of faith and a good conscience. Our blessed Lord, though He had the Spirit of God without measure, yet always was governed by, and fought the devil with, 'It is written.'" ~ George Whitefield.
