Outpouring of Prayer in Rubavu

Our team arrived here in Rubavu, Rwanda safely. We are all healthy and renewed. The work has started. ‎300 local intercessors are fasting and praying on the site of the Festival Thursday through Sunday, which is when the weeklong festival events kick off. That is powerful!

Churches of all stripes are united in purpose and in prayer (Anglicans, Baptists, Pentecostals, Presbyterians, Charismatic congregations, etc). That is nothing short of a miracle in this day and age of theological polarization. God working! 


Continue to pray with us that God's mighty anointing will work through us to draw thousands to Christ. Pray for utterance to be given to us to make manifest the work and the glory of Christ. Rubavu is a city with a 40% Muslim population, the most concentration of Muslims in all of Rwanda. The Mayor is Muslim and so are a number of public officials.
 
Thankfully, many of them will be attending our events including a special dinner we have planned for the business community that will include the Mayor and regional Governor. Pray for God to change their hearts and the heart of this community. 
 
From the balcony of my hotel room, about a mile away, I can see the city of Goma which is in the Democratic Republic of Congo.  It is a much troubled city that has seen the worst of days in recent years. Hundreds of its residents will be drooping across the border to this side to participate in the Festival events.  Pray that this is the beginning of a mighty revival that brings the fresh wind and fresh fire of the Spirit that heals the wounds of this region.
 
Finally, continue to pray for the outstanding financial provision to help us complete this mission successfully.  If you can, please click on the donate button on the right side panel of this page and follow the link to a secure donation site.  
 
O Lord our God, it is for your glory!  O Lord our God, pour out your Mighty Spirit to heal and to save the lost in Rubavu and Goma.  For you are our hope.  Our firm foundation.  My soul delights in obeying your commands.  I hasten to follow you in your mission for the salvation of humankind.  Our Lord and God, do a new thing in Rubavu that sinners and unbelievers will marvel and therefore repent and glorify you!

Adiedo Embraces Hope

World Evangelist Sammy Wanyonyi preaching in Adiedo, Kenya Orphaned by HIV/AIDS, she rarely speaks, not even to her visiting school sponsor Pam Craig who traveled as part of our team to Adiedo from Spokane Washington.  But last Saturday afternoon in the closing moments of the evangelistic festival, Everline walked over to Pam and asked if she could be introduced to the preacher (me).   For once, she had a smile on her face.  The eleven year-old had just asked Jesus Christ into her heart as Lord and Savior.   Several hundreds of people respond to the invitation to follow Christ on day two of Adiedo Festival All across the soccer-field were stories like Everline's.  I cannot forget a ten year-old young man named Ochieng.  On Friday night, he waited backstage patiently for me to leave the stage and then boldly walked up to me extending his hand to greet me.  Although his clothes were torn here and there, I could tell that he had worn his Sunday best to the meeting. 

My Body Fails Me - #SHINEGlobalMissionChallenge- #MuhangaRwanda2014

Yes, I want to tell you all about what God is doing here in Muhanga but my body fails me.  I want to tell you how He is moving through our Kinderroots team where already several thousands of children have been ministered to over the last two days on hills, plains and valleys surrounding Muhanga.  Where hundreds have already given their lives to Christ. I want to tell you how God is moving through our Prisoners of Hope outreach program to where three thousand prisoners were reached with the love of Christ earlier this afternoon with hundreds of them giving their lives to Christ. Where we delivered supplies worth several thousands of dollars to the delight of the prison officials following a devastating fire at the facility that gutted much of what they had beyond salvaging. How God worked to open doors so our team could go in and bring the Good News of Christ. How doors to another prison with even more inmates are wide open for the gospel tomorrow morning. I want to tell you of s

Yes I am back to Blogging

I've been gone from blogging for several years now.  I am glad to be back.  I am looking forward to keep this blog alive and well.  So much has happened since my last blog.  In addition to the global work of evangelism, we launched a new work here in the Twin Cities.  The initiative is called Merge. More on why the name Merge later. Yes, we have been busy as ever sharing the Good News with thousands around the world. But more so, in the last two years God has shown us that the Nations are also right here in our own backyard.  Over one million first and second generation from over one hundred nations in the Twin Cities alone. Our cities are more and more global. The people speak multiple religious languages.  They carry multiple national identities.  They fall in different social and cultural groups. With such diversity of peoples at our door step we must ask the question: Is the "Great Commission" still Great? Is Jesus' command given a couple millennia ago to &
