What indicators “ renewed minds and transformed hearts”! We greatly rejoice in our work of engaging and building God fearing leaders who can make a difference in their sphere of influence. Their actions and testimonies during our one month of working revealed that God is doing great things in them and through them. We experienced spiritual and numerical growth. Ten (10) senators and nine (9) parliamentarians effectively took part. Before we give you detail testimonies, below are some key outstanding programs executed during the June-July 2014 session.
PRAYER FORUM FOR LEADERS
As Moses lifted up his hands to God in prayer for the nation of Israel when faced with war, so too, senators personally mobilized themselves and prayed for the nation .The theme of the prayer forum was “When Leaders Pray”. The parliamentarians’ did not attend this particular event as planed because they were busy. They were happy that their friends and brothers in the Lord were able to lift up their hands and voices to God in prayer
LIFE TRANSFORMING BIBLE STUDY
Both senators’ and parliamentarians’ were richly blessed with the word of God they studied during their twice- weekly Bible and prayer meetings: Their participation in these meetings demonstrated their personal desire to grow in their walk with God. The fruits are encouragement to the entire team. God is really shaping them to become His instrument for the transformation of the nation
COLLABORATION WITH MINPROFF
After the distribution of 120 DVDS of Magdalena to staffs of MINPROFF for 2014, we had a first collaboration meeting with some staffs of the Ministry. We are expanding to the higher authorities as we enter an agreement for empowering the senior staffs in their efforts to eliminate and prevent gender base violence done on the Woman and the girl child.
Three MP’s went on mission trip with a boss .One happened to be a member of our discipleship group. This member got into a conversational talk with the boss and the boss asked the following question “Are you a freemason”? The Mp responded “No I am a Christian and a servant of God. The boss answered, “ Ah you can still be a Christian and be a freemason.” The MP outstanding respond was “God cannot be mocked you can’t serve two masters”.
At the end of the conversation to cut it short, the colleague who came in and joined in the conversation made a commitment to follow Christ Jesus while the boss asked for prayer so that one day he too will become a true Christian.
A Ministry partner got it first!
Immediately after wrapping off from our bible study time, on my way, I came across one of our supporters best defined as Ministry partner. After Inquiring on how activities have been unveiling during this June session, he said he was not surprise for this is what he( ministry partner) witness “While in the lift I overheard a conversation from 2 senators and one of the senators talked on the importance of the word of God. He referred to it as his “strength for leadership success” and so he is invited him to be a part of thier weekly bible study.”
some of our MPs have been engaged in evangelism connecting their peers to Christ. One of them on his personal account bought Bibles which he has been distributing to his Peers and even including the Personnel of their lodge as a strategy for following up of those who responded to follow Christ through their effort and our “project Gift to the nation”
He said “ I am so amazed that what God showed me in a dream came to pass”. He testified among the discipleship group members “ In my dream I saw one of my colleague making an effort to change his faith to become a Muslim even with his family members. Waking up the following early morning when I was going to the National Assembly, I meet with him and asked him and he accepted that it was true. When I finished sharing with him, he made up his mind to become a true follower of Christ together with his family members. He visit ed me with his family just to thank God who sent me to him. I am planning to continue to Work with him and his family members.
GLORY BE TO GOD
