Other Prayer Requests

CAMEROON - Please pray for our missionaries during the time before and during 04-07 July.  They have been asked to minister in a Convention of another church organization.  The leader of this organization is interested in becoming a part of the UPC of Cameroon.

Also, please pray with us for the final registration of our Church.  We have been having problems in some areas of the country.  We have been told that the papers need to pass the office of the Vice President for his approval.  We believe the Lord can give us wisdom needed to go about this in a right way and that we will be granted the papers needed to operate our churches throughout the country without opposition and pressure put on our churches.

- Pray for the safe arrival of our Area coordinator Rev. and Sister Adams and Rev Sisco, the GATS regional representative as they visit Malabo.

LIBERIA - During the month of July, there will be a Section 4 Ladies Fellowship held at the Solid Rock UPC, Owens' Groove District, Grand Bassa County.  Pray for the Section II Churches especially during this rainy season and farming season that the churches can maintain good attendance.  Finally we ask you to pray for Bishop Dr. Stephen T. Y. Benda, as he moves his leadership from his first-year inauguration into his second year steering the affairs of UPC Liberia into greater challenges.

(Rodrigues Island) - Pray for the visit of Bro. Vijay Balgobin and his wife who will be with us for special services scheduled 04-07 July.  Please also pray for the seven new families who have opened their houses for a "Home Bible Studies."

SENEGAL - Please pray for the Sullys as they go to Senegal for a preliminary, fact-finding trip during the months of July and August. They will also be meeting officials in efforts to ensure that all church documents are in order.

SOUTH AFRICA - 1) Retha, a 19-year-old young lady, was diagnosed with a brain tumor and has already lost sight in one eye. Doctors have given her just a few more days to live. This has been an incredible shock for her and her family.   2) Pastor Mark Chummie (Eldorado Park, Johannesburg) lost his wife last week due to Steven Johnson Syndrome. Their youngest child will be 3 years old later this year. Please pray God will continue to comfort the family and guide them.

SOUTH SUDAN - We need your continued prayer for the spiritual growth and direction for the church.  Pray for reconstruction process of our church in Juba which was recently demolished.

- Help us pray that we can sell our present plot of land so we will be able to buy another piece of property for the building of our Bible School.

Praise Reports

EQUATORIAL GUINEA - Four were baptized in Jesus name and four received the Holy Ghost in the past few weeks.

LIBERIA - We are thankful to God that the sectional conferences have been successful so far. We are encouraged with the attendance from the local churches. Many visitors were invited and were filled with the Holy Ghost.  The services focused on church growth.  We are thankful that our National Superintendent was able to be in all these conferences.  We also are very grateful that our Missionary, Elder Albert Stewart and his wife are still here helping in every way that they can during this transitional time.

MAURITIUS (Rodrigues Island) - We now have three new licensed preachers in Rodrigues.

SOUTH AFRICA - We give praise that Pastor Shaun Visagie (Cape Town) was discharged from hospital after triple-bypass surgery. His recovery is slow and painful. We continue to believe God for his complete recovery.

SOUTH SUDAN - Thank you for praying for Pastor Samuel who is now out of hospital and almost fully recovered.
