August Prayer Points

August 27, 2014

Thank you for your continued partnership through prayer. Here are our August Prayer Points:

  • After many years of fostering-to-adopt, we are scheduled to go to high court tomorrow, Thursday the 28th, in the morning to obtain the final adoption orders of Zulea and Miriam. Please pray that our lawyer and the judge show up and the judge grants us a positive ruling.

  • Our teacher, Rebekah Wissink, arrived on the 21st! Please pray that she may adjust and settle smoothly.

  • The collaboration of JobMax, The Freedom Boys (featured in our last newsletter) and Children of the Light Gospel Choir and the filming of the two music videos has been a success so far! The videos are currently being edited, the songs are currently being played on all the major radio stations in Kampala, and interviews are being done by TV stations, radio stations and newspapers! Click here to see photos and stay tuned for the videos! Please pray for the promotion process and the launch, that corporate sponsors may catch the rhythm and the vision!

  • Pius Emesu, featured in our March newsletter, has been performing very well at Africa Bible University. Here is something he recently wrote us: “Truly speaking I do not have words to express my gratitude for the interest and the steps you have taken in my personal and intellectual well being and I take seriously the mandate given to me to study the word God. I intend to work hard to maintain and improve upon my current academic record and to strive to become a contributing and frank member of the body of Christ in any place He will send me after this place… I will be praising God for the support you are always giving me, that is making me to learn the treasures of God. I really consider this a great blessing to me.” If you would like to financially contribute to his education, please let us know.
  • Our teammates and good friends, Ruudy and Beckie Olupot, got married just over a year ago and have since moved to Jinja to join another organization in training local church leaders (read more here). We praise God for the 3 years Beckie spent as a single and the 1 year she spent together with Ruudy on Team Beyond walking alongside and impacting young people in Kamuda, Amuria and Soroti, and establishing a focus community in Amuria. Most of all, we praise God for, and look forward to many more years of, their friendship and their partnership in the gospel. Please pray for them as they head to America next month for Ruudy’s first time, and that in doing so their marriage may grow more and more to reflect that of Christ and the church.

  • We have narrowed in on land to buy for Beyond (see our scouting photos here) and are ready to head full-force into Phase 1 of Beyond’s development plan. Once the plan is approved by the Senior Leadership of International Teams, we purchase the land and begin our first self-sustainability project: floating fish cages!

“The child asks of the Father whom he knows. Thus, the essence of Christian prayer is not general adoration, but definite, concrete petition. The right way to approach God is to stretch out our hands and ask of One who we know has the heart of a Father.” ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Cost of Discipleship

Praying with you,
Tim & Angie Sliedrecht
