 We Support The impoverished Romani Youth in Nou

  • We finance their transport to get to school and career training
  • We help purchase stationary
  • We work through the local Baptist church in Nou under compassionate and evangelistic Pastor CornellMissions Month 2017.2
  • We are part of a larger group knitting blankets and clothing for Nou
  • We pray for Pastor Cornell, the church, its mission and the youth

Most of our fundraising during missions month takes place through ‘self-denial’ that is where individuals and families deny themselves, coffee, puddings, outings etc. for the month and put that

money into a gift at the end of May. People can also make a donation in an envelope marked “Nou”.
Occasionally people fundraise by selling craft.

 Prayer Points:

  • God’s Holy Spirit on the church and those that come for help through the church in Nou.
  • Salvations not just amongst the youth but whole families.
  • Whole families to be better off economically
  • Strength, wisdom and power on Pastor Cornell and his team as there is a large group of youth coming up through the scheme.
  • Godly relationships amongst the youth and church

Two of the original youth have now become leaders in the church.  Several have been saved. Many are now in jobs and their families out of poverty because of Ranui Baptist Church. Children are being born into homes that can feed them.
Pastor Cornell will now require all beneficiaries to come to bible study

40 Days of Prayer  

Prayer logo - Missions Month 2017

 

Our Heavenly Father is calling all of us to an intensive time of prayer for the lost and found.

How long will we pray for?
We will be praying for 40 days.
How will we do that?
We will use prewritten prayers.
What are these prayers based on?
These prayers are based on God’s Word. They are written from our Heavenly Dad’s desire that none should perish.
Who will we be praying for?
We will be praying for those people in our lives who do not know the saving grace of Jesus (the lost), and for those people in our lives who do (the found), including our church, and the church in Nou.
When do we start?
Monday 1st May 2017 as part of Mission Month.
Who is it for?
Anyone from about 10 up, who wants to pray for the love of God to touch their friends and family, and those they work with, or go to school with.
How many people do we pray for?
You can pray for one person, a group of people, or any number in between. You can pray for the youth of Ranui, the people who come to Mainly Music, the care group on Fridays, or people in prison. Basically, whoever God puts on your heart to pray for.
How long will it take?
It will take under 10 minutes per day if you pray only once.

Let us embrace this Prayer Intensive with thanksgiving, zeal and a heart of love.
