July Prayer Points

July 22, 2014

Thank you for your ongoing partnership through prayer. Here are our July Prayer Points:Rebekah Wissink

  • Please continue to pray for our teacher, Rebekah Wissink, as she prepares to come in August – applying with ITeams, going through training, raising support.
  • Praise God for the progress made on the discipleship camp and retreat center, for His continued direction and leading:
      • We have come to a decision on the name for the discipleship camp and retreat center! While it wasn’t at the top of the voting list, we have decided to go with the name “Beyond Transformation Centre,” or BEYOND [location] for short because it is consistent with our team name, Team Beyond; because English is the most common language in Uganda (as opposed to Swahili for the rest of East Africa); and because the word “Beyond,” based on the meaning/rationale, speaks well to what the camp/center is all about. Thank you so much for voting!
      • The more detailed phased plan is complete and submitted to ITeams leadership! Once approved, we can move forward in purchasing land.
      • We are close to purchasing land! We have finalized negotiations on two pieces of land and are working on a couple others. Please continue to pray for discernment, wisdom and sensitivity to God’s leading as we make final decisions on land.
      • Plans for our first self-sustainability project are underway – floating fish farms! More info to come!Job Max
  • We are helping our neighbor, Job Max, a local music artist, produce and promote a couple music videos and an album of self-written songs with positive, Biblical messages. The videos will feature the Freedom Boys (partner street boys ministry of the Soroti Town team) and Children of the Light Gospel Choir (partner ministry of the Pamba team, featured in the Tiesengas’ latest newsletter). Please pray for this collaboration, that it may be successful in spreading truth and encourage people to follow the ways of Jesus. You can view two of his past videos:
      • Watoto, which speaks of the value of children and against child abuse and sacrifice
      • Itunga Luoteso, which speaks of the need to work hard to eat
  • The Beyond Resource Centre is moving to Pamba, a focus community of Team Beyond just outside of Soroti Town, to be part of Team Beyond’s ministry there (featured in the Tiesengas’ latest newsletter). It is in a more central, accessible location where it is expected to be made use of by more people and make greater impact. Please pray it may be so! More info to come!

“We tend to use prayer as a last resort, but God wants it to be our first line of defense. We pray when there’s nothing else we can do, but God wants us to pray before we do anything at all. Most of us would prefer, however, to spend our time doing something that will get immediate results. We don’t want to wait for God to resolve matters in His good time because His idea of ‘good time’ is seldom in sync with ours.” Oswald Chambers

NOTE: We are still accepting digital cameras for the Beyond Photography Program. Please let us know if you have any that you’d like to donate.
