Ministry on Two Fronts

At the end of October and early November, AFCI Slovakia will conduct evangelism in Stiavnika and also teach the Scriptures at the Bible school in Nitra.  Pray the Lord will prepare the hearts of those people who will hear the good news message.  Pray those attending the Bible college will be strengthened in their knowledge of the Word and also garner additional clarity on the future ministries God has for them.

Seeker Receives Salvation

In September, Pavle Cekov of AFCI Slovakia was asked to speak at a church in Hurbanovo.  Pavle was asked to return to speak again in October.  Pray for Pavle as he prepares his messages, and pray the Lord would give him clarity of thought and boldness as he preaches.  Pray God will prepare the hearts and minds of those who will hear his message.

Coming to Saving Faith

October 9th, 2017

August 17-31, National Director of AFCI Slovakia, Pavle Cekov, traveled to SE Macedonia for outreach ministry.  In addition, Pavle and his team had the opportunity to encourage believers at selected church events.  While in Macedonia, Pavle shared the gospel with a woman who was in the midst of family turmoil, and she prayed to receive Christ as her Savior.  Pray God will use a nearby church as a catalyst for her discipleship.  Pray issues within the family can be resolved peacefully.

Summer Day Camp Draws Many Young People

October 9th, 2017

AFCI Slovakia recently sponsored an English Language Summer Day Camp in Nove Zamky, and eighty young people attended.  Pray those that trusted Christ will receive effective follow-up visits and then grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ.  Pray their parents would now see Christ in them and begin to explore the Bible’s teaching on salvation.  Pray these new believers will continue to respond to the leading of the Holy Spirit as they seek to obey the Lord at home, school and in the community.

Macedonian Call

October 9th, 2017

AFCI Slovakia’s Samuel and Ivana Cekov made their move to Macedonia successfully, and have begun their ministry in Kolesino.   Samuel began teaching in the Macedonian language and had the opportunity to speak at different churches who are interested in expanding their own church planting efforts.  Much of the Cekov’s work will be among the youth of the city.   Pray many young people will examine the claims of Christ and then believe on Jesus for salvation.  Pray for Samuel as he assists in the training of those who feel called of God to a church planting ministry.  Pray also for Samuel and Ivana as they will begin a small group Bible study in their home.

Under Construction

AFCI Nigeria continues its development of the Nigerian Chapel Project.  One-third of the funds have come in.  Pray the Lord will raise up the additional funding needed to complete the project.  The facility will serve as a multi-purpose chapel for prayer, teaching, outreach events and as a classroom for students, pastors and lay leaders who are wanting further training in the study of the Scriptures and practical ministry application.

Church Leader Training

October 7th, 2017

November 5-11, AFCI Nigeria will conduct a Church Workers Development Seminar.   Pray each pastor, Sunday school teacher and small group leader will take the principles they will learn from sessions and pass those spiritual and practical truths on to others in their respective flocks.

Outreach Event Draws Nigh

October 7th, 2017

In October, AFCI Nigeria will sponsor a large outreach event.  Pray God would raise up the needed funds for food and travel for all people attending.  Pray also that the Lord would provide the funds needed for medicines and first aid related items, and for clothing to be given away  to those in need.  Pray God will bring the seekers of His choosing to this event and that their hearts would be open to the gospel message.  Pray effective follow-up will take place for new believers once the event is finished.

Bicycles Needed for Travel

A good portion of the AFCI Nigerian ministry of outreach is conducted by team evangelists who use bicycles as their mode of travel.  Pray God would raise up the funds needed for six new bicycles for volunteer workers in the Kamenchi ministry field.  Pray also that the Lord would raise up funding for six megaphones needed for large outreach events.
