Current Requests

Partnering in Zambia

May 22nd, 2017

AFCI’s Hayward and Barbara Paul had the recent opportunity to partner with AFCI Zambia for ministry.  Pastor’s training conferences were scheduled in three cities, and at each venue, many more pastors attended the than were expected.  Barbara taught in three classes for women and Hayward spoke in three classes for men.  All the participants appreciated the sound biblical instruction from Genesis on which Hayward spoke, and also learned much on the authority of God’s word.  Pray the pastors and their wives who attended will continue to be strengthened in their faith as a result of the material covered in the conferences.  Pray none will grow weary in the doing of good.

When Hearts Are Open

May 22nd, 2017

AFCI Paraguay’s Emi Monges continues to conduct follow-up training for the many women involved in the Focus On the Heart (FOH) ministry. During a recent session at the eastern side of Asuncion, Emi met with four women who all prayed to receive Christ as their savior.  Through conversations at a baby shower, another woman committed her life to Christ, and then, a different woman who had fallen away in her faith, recommitted her life to Christ.  Pray for the spiritual growth of those who have made these commitments.  Pray the Lord will continue to provide Emi with the energy and the funds to effectively minister with the FOH material.

Heart Freedom

May 22nd, 2017

At a recent gathering in Atlanta, AFCI’s Chris Hanak had the joy of leading the Focus On the Heart (FOH) Heart Freedom 2 course to a group of nine women.  Chris is also working with AFCI country leaders from three nations to adapt the FOH material for a men’s ministry.  Pray God will grant the leaders wisdom and insight as they review and alter the materials for men.  Pray the Lord would expand this adaptation of the FOH principles to additional AFCI ministries around the world in His perfect timing.

Late Change Opens Instant Doors

May 22nd, 2017

AFCI Australia’s John North recently traveled to Fiji for ministry.  Though a seminar was cancelled at the last minute, God opened the door for John to meet with several church leaders.  Along with AFCI evangelist, Kaipati Tekavei, who resides in Fiji, the AFCI team members were able to introduce the EvangelismSHIFT program to various church leaders.  One leader expressed a desire to attend training in Australia.  Pray God will use John and Kaipati to train many leaders for the ministry.  Pray church leaders would remain to the EvangelismSHIFT program.
