2. Reverend Zuala, SFM India Director as well as the Board and volunteers are very excited to have Jeff coming for a visit! Specifically Reverend Zuala requests prayer for:
a. “Dr. Jeff Stam, International Director is planning to come and there will be one special program for the Mizoram State government officers. We are expecting more than one thousand officers including the Chief Minister (in your location Governor) and his ministers and all important officers will be attended. In this meeting, Dr. Jeff will preach based on the Biblical passage on Amos 5:24.
Therefore, let all the prayer partners all over the SFM family keep praying for the blessings of his trip to Aizawl, and Mizoram India.”
b. Please continue in your prayers for the vital and difficult ministry the volunteers are involved in weekly sharing the gospel and love of Jesus in the hospital and jail.
c. TNT Orphanage, which currently has over 1,000 children faithfully through God’s provision, provides food, clothes, medicine education and the love of Jesus every day. Thank the Lord for the staff and volunteers who serve and give selflessly. Pray that physical, mental, emotional and spiritual strength, joy and wisdom will be experienced and shared and they will be refreshed daily.
d. Continue to pray for the leadership at TNT Orphanage: Rev Papuia and Mr. Mal sawma. Often in their correspondence with me they share truths from God’s Word that is impacting their lives. Here is a recent example that, I am sure, will bless you: “I’d like to share some words, about what happened while Paul and Silas were prisoners at Philippi. While they prayed and were singing hymns to God there was an earthquake, the foundation of the prison was shaken. All the prison doors were opened and all the prisoners’ chain was loosened. This story woke me up, singing hymns with prayers shall set the captives free, it did before, will do tonight and tomorrow. Asking God to set the captives free! Praise the Lord! Hallelujah”
