Africa Region and Around the World

Over 3,000 have died this year already from malaria in Burkina. Pray for our village pastors and their families. With threats of kidnaping just 3 hours north of our home and armed bandits moving around the south, we are feeling some uneasiness in Burkina. With Islamic militants being active in Mali, we are feeling the need to work harder while the doors are still open here.

I just returned from a weekend in the village. God has been good. We had revival services with Living Life Christian Ministries (Oneness Pentecostal) over the weekend, and I had three hours with their leadership on Saturday. 9 received the Holy Ghost and 10 were healed. Glory be to God!   

We request prayer for the safe arrival of our National Superintendent, Steven Benda, on Nov. 2nd from his trip to the United States and the General Conference in St. Louis, MO.

This year's final National Board Meeting was different from the normal board meetings that are normally held each year.  This time it included some special leadership training sessions brought by Missionary Monte Showalter.  The National Board expressed that it was the best meeting they had ever had and left challenged to do more to see greater revival throughout the island nation of Madagascar.  Sis. Dianne Showalter also had a few special sessions for the board wives, and they too were encouraged and challenged to help their husbands work even harder in the responsibilities they have been elected to fulfill.  Business was also accomplished with several new church properties being purchased, assistance to several churches to finish putting a roofs on new church buildings before the rainy season sets in, and even assistance for some churches to help them begin building a new building before long.  The ultimate goal is to eventually have land and buildings for every established UPC congregation all around Madagascar.  Thank the Lord for continued growth and revival!

Pray for new church opening on the island of Rodrigues at AnseQuitor Corail.  There were eight people who received the Holy Ghost during recent crusade at this new location.  One was baptized, and there were twenty first-time visitors.  Also, pray for all workers and their wives.  Pray for AIMer Sister Ikerd. She needs prayer in regard to her "Visa Situation"

Needing prayer for the establishing of new strong churches, also for continued Leadership Training.  Please continue to pray for peace and stability in the country.

During the recent West Nile Conference, there were 78 filled with the Holy Ghost and 17 were baptized in Jesus Name. Two Trinitarian pastors are having Bible Studies. We also had testimonies of many healings. Assisntant Superintendent Christia and Presbyter Mike Ogwal were special speakers.
