Dear AFM Colleague,

1. UP4SA NATIONAL PRAYER INITIATIVE

It is not necessary to mention that South Africa is experiencing challenges on many levels. The Covid-19 pandemic has only intensified or accelerated these challenges to a higher level of urgency. The main responsibility of Christians is to pray earnestly and faithfully to God.

The UP4SA is a National Prayer Initiative that is running for its 6th year. We invite all AFM congregations to join this prayer action on Sunday, 28 March 2021 which will be broadcasted on Wild Coast FM 98.6 FM (www.wildcoastfm.co.za) between 7h00 and 8h00. One representative from all 9 our provinces will lead in prayer. The programme will also include a 10-minute encouragement and prayer session lead by Angus Buchan.

I want to encourage you to register your AFM Assembly with the UP4SA Prayer Initiative by sending a message to:

082 462 1540 or 073 899 2323

There is also a need for lunchboxes.
