I want to thank you for standing with us in prayer. The presence of prayerful people on this earth is often underestimated and although we each know how important prayer is, do we really understand the benefits of a prayerful life?
The Spirit of God is working in each one of us to impact our families, our work, our churches and communities, even our Nations and we begin to see this power when we spend time with God.
We hear once again how the earth and everything in it belong to him and we learn we can trust him with everything that is precious to us. We turn our worries into prayers and we can soar with him as he fills our hearts with love for life and for the people he loves. We are reminded how it is He alone who is all knowing and all powerful.
It is such a comfort to know that he can also work with anything that we give to him in prayer.
There is no circumstance, no person, no community that he can not touch and turn around.

“We have the same Spirit of faith that is described in the Scriptures when it says, “First I believed, then I spoke in faith.” So we also first believe then speak in faith. We do this because we are convinced that he who raised Jesus will raise us up with him, and together we will all be brought into his presence. Yes, all things work for your enrichment so that more of God’s marvelous grace will spread to more and more people, resulting in an even greater increase of praise to God, bringing him even more glory! So no wonder we don’t give up. For even though our outer person gradually wears out, our inner being is renewed every single day. We view our slight, short-lived troubles in the light of eternity. We see our difficulties as the substance that produces for us an eternal, weighty glory far beyond all comparison, because we don’t focus our attention on what is seen but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but the unseen realm is eternal.”
2 Corinthians‬ ‭4:14‬ ‭The Passion Translation. (TPT‬‬)

There are no situations too desperate, and no person so far from him that he can not touch. God asks that we engage our hearts and bring them to him
It is for us to bring these needs to God in prayer, trusting in his power to work through us to reveal his glory.

As we move into 2019 we bring the leaders of the Nations and their people to God and ask for revival and for his transforming power to come and for every resource needed. We thank God for the way he will choose to provide for the Nations.  Deborah Irvin

Church Planting

Pray for the church as it shares the good news and leads the way in the service of orphans and the widows. 50 members continue to meet with a vision to reach out with God’s love and be the hands and feet of Jesus.  Please pray especially for the children as they learn about Jesus and seek to follow him. We want to see those who wish to follow Christ receive the support they need to grow in their faith and realise their God-given potential.

Details on the Yao People 

Generating income in Malawi 
Malawi has dropped again three steps down from position 6 last year in 2017 to position 3 this year 2018 as the world most poorest country.*

Please pray for our Moringa crop in the early stages of growth – without the Lord’s protection it will fail. We want to do what the Father is doing – in everything we do – in our efforts to raise income and in being Jesus hands and feet on the ground.

Under 5’s program at Shine Village Early Years
Resources are needed to extend our teaching programme to more villages involving more parents. Please pray for partners to join our Shine Child Sponsorship scheme set up to manage an increasing number of children in need of preschool education across the region.
