Thank you so much for going before the throne on our behalf. Please keep me informed of your prayer needs as well. I want this to be a two-way street.
Praise Report: Thank you for your prayers for the Teleios Men's Mega Summit in Oxnard, CA this past June. I can't even begin to describe how powerful the conference was. Many men came to faith in Christ, were baptized in the Holy Spirit and transformed to live a life of faithfulness to God. The messages were powerful and the worship was heavenly. Your prayers paved the way for the Holy Spirit to move in power. From the very first service on, the Holy Spirit filled the sanctuary.
As an update, Melina, the worship leader in Australia that we asked you to pray for, went on to be with the Lord one week ago. We could not have anticipated a greater answer to our prayers. For years she stood before Jesus in worship leading others and now she stands before the resurrected Lord worshiping him in His presence.
Here are some of the prayer points for this month.
- Devi, Felipe and I just returned from ministering in a 15 year-old church in Setúbal, Portugal that is experiencing revival. Please pray for continued growth both in numbers and maturity in Christ. Also, pray for Pastor Anderson Carvalho, he is a phenomenal man of integrity and loves his people well yet he is struggling with becoming full-time at the church and resigning from his position in the factory. He fears others perception of taking a salary from the church.
- We also met with Joana and Pedro Correia while in Portugal. They are planting a church in Lisbon, Portugal approximately 50 miles north of Setúbal, Portugal. Pray for he and his wife as they begin the foundational work for this church plant.
- Pray for Abdellah Larage, who is starting a one-month leadership training conference in Morocco. After already being arrested 20 times, pray for protection from authorities and the anointing of the Holy Spirit on there sessions. Abdellah is an incredible man of God facing persecution in this Muslim nation.
- Pray for Ana Paula and Gustavo Bessa and the Men & Women Before the Throne Conference in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, taking place August 4th - 6th.
- Pray for Jeremiah Swaray, in Sierra Leone. He is raising funds for the new church, orphanage, school and youth conferences.
- Please pray for financial increase at KGM. We are in need of $20,000 additional monthly income to meet our financial needs.
Thank you for your prayer support. It means more to us than you can imagine.
I love you,
