Dear Praying Friends
Please find attached our June prayer sheet, many thanks for your consistent and earnest prayers,the Lord bless you
The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. Elijah was as human as we are, and yet when he prayed earnestly that no rain would fall, none fell for three and a half years! Then, when he prayed again, the sky sent down rain and the earth began to yield its crops. James gives us an example of what persistent and earnest prayer of the righteous (born again Christian) does, it yields fruit, which is an encouragement for us not to tier from praying. Not giving ourselves rest and not giving God rest until the all Nations bow before Him. James5:16b-18
CAPRO Missions S.A
“It has stirred up a missionary vision in us’ was how Jérémie Ramiandrisoa, an Assemblies of God regional pastor from the port city of Mahajanga described our recent conference in Madagascar.
Years of faithful missionary and indigenous initiatives have raised a large Malagasy Church. But there are still many unreached peoples. Yet the key to evangelising these remaining unreached peoples is the mobilisation and equipping of the Malagasy Church to do it. This was the vision behind the conference tagged ‘ECOMIN - Ecole du
Ministère (School of ministry) Madagascar’ held from the 15th - 21st of August.
It was organised in partnership with the Africa Inland Mission (AIM). Over 60 pastors and leaders gathered in Antananarivo (Tana), the capital, for the week long residential program. They came from 13 different denominations/ministries and from several provinces in the country. It was such a blessed time of teaching, praying and challenging the churches to come together and face the challenge evangelising and transforming that large island as well as the neighbouring islands, while the doors are still open.
Another pastor summarised the sentiments of many this way: "I spent 3 years in Bible school but this one week is more than a school, it is life-transforming and inspiring. My family life and ministry will not be the same again".
We want to see the Church equipped for the remaining missionary work on this large island among the southern forest tribes and the Muslim ethnic groups in the northern parts.
“Living close as we are to the Muslim Comorians and the unreached Sakalava people, this conference has helped in seeing how we can reach them”, Pastor Jérémie added. Pray for next year's conference which has been fixed for September 3-8, 2012. Pray also for us as we consult with our partner mission agency AIM about placing long-term workers on this island.
