Africa’s Leadership Team to Convene Strategic Summit

The following is an adapted excerpt of an article by Dr. Chris Braun, the Alliance regional director for Africa, published in the Africa Regional Newsletter December issue.

Alliance field leaders in Africa will meet to seek God’s guidance for future ministry on the continent during the Africa Regional Leadership/Church Planting Conference in Senegal, December 9-16. Pray that God will speak at this conference and that we will hear Him.

Spreading Christmas Joy

Africa’s Alliance leadership has a huge responsibility before us-to make Jesus known among lost peoples so they do not continue to perish without access to the gospel. We can’t let their Christmases continue to be void of the good news we so richly enjoy. We need the Lord’s wisdom for how to reach Africa’s least-reached peoples.

This continent is blessed with millions of people who follow Jesus-nations in which The Alliance has ministered for decades generally have fairly large Christian communities. We praise God for the rich ways that He has used Alliance international workers and African church members to build His Church in these countries.

However, a number of African nations are places where Jesus is hardly known. Most people in these countries do not know Christians, and they have no understanding of who Jesus is or the glorious work He would love to do in them.

Prayer Needed!

Pray for God’s direction on how we can be more instrumental-bearing light to nations inundated by hopeless, spiritual darkness. Pray for His continuing leadership in Strategic Field Reviews planned for Burkina Faso (January 22-26), Mali (January 27-31), and Guinea (February 4-8).

Above all, pray that God will send His witnesses to the African nations where people don’t know Jesus. Pray that His good news will be spoken forth and that He will be seen in His glory—that there will be a major turning to Him across these long—resistant countries.

Finally, pray, remembering that He is our God who is able to do far more abundantly than all we ask or think. Thank you.

What You Can Do

Pray. And as you’re led, give to Alliance Great Commission Ministries. In doing so, you partner with overseas workers, like our teams in Africa, to spread the good news of Christ’s love to the far corners of our world where many have had no opportunity to hear the good news.
