 1 FEB ENG NEWSFLASH

1.  PRAYING TOGETHER AS A CHURCH

To those assemblies that participated in the nation-wide AFM prayer and fasting month of January 2019, I would like to say thank you. We requested that our assemblies pray for specific prayer points, including the South African general elections, the AFMI (AFM International) Conference, the World Pentecostal Conference, the harvest of souls and the transformation of our communities. Praying together as a church is precious and I would like to encourage you to share some feedback with me. Send an e-mail with your feedback to [email protected].

A special note: Please take note that the development of the Diploma in Pentecostal Theology for people who cannot be admitted for the BTH Degree at NWU (North-West University) is in an advanced stage.

I would also like to remind you of two important upcoming events:

  • The NOB Empowerment Visits
  • Up4SA Prayer Initiative
2.  NOB EMPOWERMENT VISITS 2019: A SPECIAL INVITATION

We hereby extend a special invitation to all our pastors, governing body members, national youth and leaders in the church to attend this year’s NOB (National Office Bearers) Empowerment Visits. The format is a combination of pre-recorded video material, live presentations, interactive dialogue sessions and opportunities for networking and fellowship. This year our theme is:

3.  UNITED PRAYER FOR SOUTH AFRICA : PRAYER POINTS

This year will be the 4th consecutive year that we gather as Christians all across South Africa to cover our nation in prayer. In 2018 there were more than 250 prayer points where many local communities united in prayer over the same weekend! Up4SA (United Prayer for South Africa) is a nationwide Prayer initiative on grassroots level. (Grassroots CommUNITY Prayer – Across race and denomination).

As ambassadors of our Lord Jesus we can play a huge roll in unifying our communities! I would like to encourage and challenge you again to take hands with the “Up4SA 2019” team, as we unite in prayer for South Africa! We all acknowledge that 2019 is a very significant year for us as a nation, as it is South Africa’s general election year.

I ask all our pastors and community leaders to prayerfully consider volunteering and co-ordinating a prayer point in your local community. Every community leader that volunteers will receive a resource pack and will be empowered to coordinate the prayer point.
