AFRICA NETWORK OF PRAYER 
“Prayers lay the tacks down on which God’s power can come. like a mighty locomotive, His power is irresistible, but it cannot reach us without rails”. Watchman Nee 
 
The following are a couple of testimonies of miracles because of prayers made by the Church. I chose to put this in a separate letter because they are lengthy, but I want you to know the results of your prayers. God hears our prayers and He is faithful to answer our cries for help. 
 
THANK YOU FOR PRAYING!!!!!
SOUTH AFRICA
Prayer Requests and Praise Report : Reported by Christelle Smith 
Thank God for connecting us via the global village that the UPCI is!!!  
 
On Jan 5, 2016 the UPCSA General Superintendent received an email from a gentleman in WA, USA. This man was in distress!!! His niece had a horrible parra-sailing accident in Cape Town, South Africa the previous day and he was calling for prayer and assistance. The fact that Brittany Siguenz survived the accident was a miracle, but she was critically injured. 
 
Pastor Smith alerted Pastors in Cape Town area, and SANOP together we began praying for Brittany. When her parents arrived in SA later that week they were met by the UPC Pastors and have forged a special bond in this trying time. As time went by Brittany’s condition improved. Doctors were able to start reconstructive surgery. The bruising of her heart and brain bleeds reduced. Doctors were amazed that they were able to bring her out of the medically induced coma they kept Brittany in. The Pastors and saints rallied around the Siguenza family and we kept on praying.
 
Brittany kept on improving and by Wednesday Jan 27th her mom reported that “…. the last few days have been challenging since Bri has been fully up. She’s very emotional, frustrated, agitated and restless…. She’s no longer on a ventilator, just on the CPAP machine and breathing on her own…. So much progress to thank Jesus for!” 
Brittany had an unforeseen setback on Thursday January 28th and she needed emergency surgery to repair a torn artery at the base of her skull. Thank God, surgery was successful. We continue to pray and ask all to join us.
 
While Pastor Links and others visited with Brittany in ICU – they met the Gomes family from Namibia. Their son, Egdar Gomes – early 20’s – was admitted to ICU in the same hospital in Cape Town, seriously ill, and placed on full life support. Doctors were unable to diagnose the illness and correctly treat Edgar. Edgar’s parents saw the miraculous improvement in Brittany and asked Pastor Links to pray – and have those who are praying for Brittany, also pray for their son. South Africa Network of Prayer (SANOP ) alerted the prayer warriors and we started praying. Days later we received report that Edgar is no longer on life support machines, sitting in a chair, talking to his parents! We continue to pray, believing God for a complete recovery. 
 
Please join with us in praying for these two young people. 
 
ACTS 12:5- …”but fervent prayer was made to God by the church”
Democratic Republic of Congo
We glorify Jesus Christ for the connection established with A.N.O.P
 
Testimony of Victory in the Democratic Republic of Congo
 
1) Here are the results of prayers for the planting of the church at Doko in the Eastern part of the DRC, in spite of the war the Gospel is going forth in all the country. Thank you ANOP for your prayers, and we ask that you continue to pray for us. 
 
2) A young woman whose husband died of AIDS was also diagnosed with AIDS, but after prayer, God healed her and then the results came back negative.  
 
3) For several years, a young lady 18 years old has been diagnosed with internal cancer. Recently the doctor told her that she only had 2 to 3 weeks to live. It was obvious to the church that she had only a short time left to live.   
She was recently converted, and the church wanted her to be born again before she died. She came to the altar and received the Holy Ghost and was baptized in water in Jesus’ name the same day. That evening of the same day, the signs of cancer began to disappear, and now four months later, she attends church and is completely healed and saved too.

The area countries are saying, “God must be a Burkinabe”.  During the recent failed Coop, hostages were taken with bullets riddling not only the nations capital but the missionary’s neighborhood as well.

AFRICA NETWORK OF PRAYER

ERITREA-  NATION FOR FOCUSED PRAYER
                                                        There is still much unreached people and nations:
Nine recognized ethnic groups: Tigrinya 55%, Tigre 30%, Saho 4%, Kunama 2%,Rashaida 2%, Bilen 2%, other (Afar, Beni Amir, Nera) 5% (2010 est.)

                    

 

Eritrea is located in Eastern Africa in the Horn of Africa, to the North of Ethiopia and bordering the Red Sea in Northeast. It has a mixed Afro-Asiatic population that is divided by religion and language. 
The population of Eritrea (6,380,803 2014 est.) is equally divided between Christian (Orthodox Church, Roman Catholic and Lutheran protestants) and Muslim religions. The population of the high plateau (Asmara) is predominantly Christian, whereas that of the lowlands and the coast are predominantly Muslim. Despite contrasts between the Muslim and Christian religions and the potential for conflict, religious groups ( Muslims, Coptic Christians, Roman Catholics and Protestant) have managed to  live in harmony and peace. 
We have no apostolic church established in Eritrea, there is no witness of the saving, transforming message of Acts 2:38, and because God 

answers specific, focused and united prayer: 

Pray ye therefore…that God will raise up and send forth a Missionary and workers into the harvest field of Eritrea.
Pray ye therefore…that God will open minds to receive the saving message of Acts 2:38 and divine wisdom that comes from Him alone. 
Pray ye Therefore…that God will breakdown all barriers that would hinder the establishment of the United Pentecostal Church in Eritrea. 
Pray ye Therefore…for the Lord to reveal Himself to these precious people through dreams and visions.
Pray ye Therefore…for authority over the demonic powers and spiritual principalities that are keeping these unreached groups bound.
Pray ye Therefore…for God to raise up prayer warriors who will begin breaking up the spiritual soil of Eritrea through  prayer, worship and intercession.
Pray ye Therefore…that the Lord will save leaders among these unreached groups.
Pray ye Therefore…that the Lord will raise up a strong Apostolic church in Eritrea.

SEYCHELLES
During our crusade on 4 and 5 July, four people were baptized in Jesus Name

 

LIBERIA
We thank God that revival fires are still burning in the UPC of Liberia after the Ebola outbreak, and we thank God that the Ebola is no longer raging in Liberia. There was a case after WHO declared Liberia Ebola Free, but the government moved quickly to contain it.,  and we are thanking God for that.   
 
TOGO
A young man that was in prison and was baptized in Jesus name and received the Holy Spirit, has now been released from prison and has made an application to come to our Bible School. We praise God for His miraculous transformation he makes in people when they are born again, just the same as He did for Paul in the Book of Acts. 

 

 August 4th —  Pray for the children of Africa                                       

Each day, hundreds of millions of children suffer sexual exploitation, labor in hazardous conditions, or struggle to survive. Pray for the children of Africa, war and fighting can separate children from their families, leaving them vulnerable to exploitation. Children are also forced to join armed rebel groups. Famine and hunger force families to make desperate choices about putting children to work or girls into early marriage, and other forms of harm against children are among the greatest evils in the world. Beseech God to “deliver them from the hand of the wicked (Psalm 82:4) Our hearts need to be broken with the things that break the heart of God. Arise, Lord! Lift up your hand, O God. Do not forget the helpless. Psalm10:12.

SPECIAL PRAYER REQUESTS:
BURUNDI
As violence and instability continue throughout the country tens of thousands have fled the country, and hundreds of thousands have fled the cities for the countryside, and scores have been killed.  Please pray for the safety of the pastors and saints who have been displaced and their lives disrupted by the political violence.  Pray for protection of the UPC of Burundi Orphanage in Bujumbura and Pastor Leonard and his family. Pray that they will have the food and provisions that they need.   

SEYCHELLES
Please pray that during our General Conference all the members will be refreshed and grow in the knowledge of the Word of God, in prayer and holiness.  Pray the Lord may raise more workers to help in the work. Pray also that the Lord open a way for us to get a land to build our church building.  Thank you.

FEATURED NATION FOR FOCUSED PRAYER :  ANGOLA
Total land area: 481,350 sq miles
Population 2014 (est.) : 24,3 million
Capital and largest city: Luanda (6,5 million) 
Official language: Portuguese
Natural Resources: oil, diamonds, iron, phosphates,

copper, feldspar, gold, bauxite and  uranium.  

Most of Angola’s people live in rural areas and work on farms and tend cattle. Many of these farmers live hand to mouth. 

 

2,000 years ago Jesus commanded His disciples,
“Go make disciples of all’nations’.” There are 16,000 ethnic groups living today. More than 6,800 (well over one third) of the 16,000 lack a community of believers with adequate numbers and resources to successfully fulfill His command. Statics show that 1 in 4 people remain without reasonable access to the Gospel, one fourth of the world has no witness of Jesus Christ. These groups are found all around the world, not just in the 10/40 Window. Angola represents one of these people nations without a witness of the saving message of Acts 2:38. 
Our Christian faith is at the center of our identity, prayer is the foundation of all we do as we seek to participate in God’s redemptive work in our world.I believe that persistent, intensive and focused prayer is a vital element that is lacking in reaching the unreached nations with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The minds of people are deceived and cannot see or accept God’s Truth and salvation. “Pray ye therefore…” ask God to open minds to receive divine wisdom that comes from Him alone. Praying is the means by which everyone can be involved in missions. Jesus said, “go into all the world and make disciples of all nations…” (Mt. 28:19-20), that is a command to every believer. He also said that when we accomplish this task, the end will come, but the end will not come until this task is accomplished (Mt. 24:14). Global Missions understands that prayer is the means by which every one of us can be involved in the mission of going “…into all the world…” Prayer isthe “process” which helps every one to “go”. Prayer produces the power to call and send apostolic laborers into the field that will take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to unreached people groups so they can experience God’s salvation and glory. 
Matthew 9:37-38 directly connects harvest and prayer to one another and applies all Christians.Prayer is the key word in the execution of this command. 
In Matthew 9:38 Jesus’ command is to “pray” rather than “therefore go” which is used in Matthew 28:19- 20.  Matthew 28:19-20 and Mark 16:15 contain instructions to those who have been “called by God specifically” to go into the harvest field. It is clear that not everybody is called to preach, but Matthew 9 makes it clear that everybody is called to pray
 
“The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”
(Luke 10:1-3). God calls enough people – the problem is that too few obey the call
Jesus’ solution to the dilemma of the plentiful harvest with few workers is focused prayer.


NIGERIA 

One of our pastors baptized 59 and 47 were filled with the Holy Spirit in Nasawara State, a place where we have no churches. Included in the 59 baptized were 4 pastors who want to now license with the United Pentecostal Church. The day after our pastor left the meeting, 9 more were baptized by one of the newly baptized pastors.

 BURKINA FASSO 
Great things happening in Burkina.  Two villages church have opened up in the south near the Ghanian border, pastured by our GATS graduate, Jeremy.  Also, three more village churches are being built two hours north of us. We are able to be a part of grain distribution in both of these regions. It is a very difficult time for our people now coming out of our hot season waiting for the rains to begin cultivating. Thank you for your prayers support, it is greatly needed. (Missionaries Ken and Ginny Cantrell) 

CAMEROUN
 In Douala in the past few weeks, two people were baptized, two were filled with the Holy Ghost and one renewed in the Holy Ghost.
Two people were baptized in Yaounde and nineteen were baptized in Bamenda during the month of May. 

SIERRA LEONE 
Prayer was made continually by the Church in respect of the Ebola Epidemic and to the Glory of God it has diminished.

LIBERIA
We are thankful to God that WHO has declared Liberia to be Ebola_Free. Now we can once more return to our cultural practices of shaking hands and hugging in times of greetings.
We also Thank God that revival fires are still burning in our local churches of the UPCI of Liberia.

Pray for West Africa Sub-Regional Conference July 8-10                             message of Jesus Christ at an early age. 
  • Pray for the protection and safety of missionaries and other workers, for wisdom, for the anointing of the Holy Spirit, and unity in order to do their work to reach the unreached. 
  • Pray for the church to gain a new vision for mission work. 
  • Pray that missionary information will reach congregations and make them aware of the need that exists. Pray that the ministers/pastors will preach about this matter more regularly and that it will become a matter of urgency in every congregation. 
  • Pray that the church will send out missionaries. There is hardly a congregation that cannot afford to send out and maintain at least one missionary, even if these are only short-term missionaries. 
  • Pray that more and more church members who experience God calling them to do full-time or part-time mission work will actually obey this call. 
  • Pray that missions giving will increase in order that the Gospel may be taken to the unreached. At present the church all over the World gives approximately 10 cents per member per week for the reaching of the unreached. Pray that this amount will increase dramatically.
Sierra Leone Special Prayer Request
Pray that God will settle the Leadership Structure of the Church of Sierra Leone,  and for a Great Revival and to restore the Country as a whole.

 

Democratic Republic of Congo Special Prayer Request

Pray for our dossier at the Justice both in Lubumbash and Kinshasa.
