One of the most exciting aspects of this ministry is watching God work in places we least expect. The places where we find extreme poverty, suffering and persecution is where we also find the greatest hunger for God’s Word. When persons in these circumstances discover for themselves what the Bible says about God’s purpose, plan, and power is for them through the Spirit, they realize the power that is theirs to follow the principles of Scripture.
Next week, Randy will be back in a special location in Nigeria for a follow-up training. Remember last time that over 260 showed up from many different backgrounds and denominations. While he worked with EMS (Evangelical Missions Society), as part of ECWA (Evangelical Church Winning All), God is bringing many who want to know God's Word. This location is the very headquarters of a radical group that has killed many Christians! Please pray for these dear brothers and sisters who live every day in the hotbed of oppression.
After leaving there, he will go to Kogon River, a very impoverished area that often is oppressed by a radical people group that are killing Christians, yet God is bringing many of them to Himself! There are many stories of how they watch and are amazed at the way the Christians die. As they kill them, they see brave, peace-filled people who even pray for them and show no signs of hatred. This has impacted many of them, but the persecution still prevails.
Remember the effect of Stephen’s death on Saul. His powerful testimony and “all who sat in the council saw that his face was like the face of an angel” (Acts 6:15). Pray that these believers will have the same powerful witness and lead many to the Savior.
