“It depends on the work of the Holy Spirit.” Francis, Global Teams Africa Director was talking about some of the difficulties of working with a particular unreached people group in Malawi. He said that material benefits – like oil and rice – can draw people in temporarily, but then they leave. Other times, people truly want to follow Jesus, but they are intimidated by their community. A true movement to Christ depends solely upon the work of the Holy Spirit. “Please pray for us, that we can continue this work.”
May 23rd is the first Sunday of Pentecost, a good time to remember how dependent we are on the Holy Spirit for everything we do.
Our team members are working in a world of turmoil. Please pray that they daily seek the leading and indwelling of the Holy Spirit to do their work. Pray that the Holy Spirit will soften the hearts of the unreached so that they will be receptive to hearing about Jesus.
