August 30—Sri Lanka
- Elsie and Danny believe the time of revival for India and Sri Lanka is at hand and all the turmoil over the past couple of years is birth pangs to the great revival God has promised. Pray that Derek’s material provided will be used extensively in Sri Lanka to bring insight and direction for the Church as growth and maturity are greatly needed.
- Pray for Directors Elsie and Danny who are beginning to reach out to youth in India. There is a lot of interest in songs among the youth, but not so much a thirst for the Word. Elsie and Danny will hold three days of training for 50 youth leaders the end of July and then initiate further training to bring them deeper into God’s Word through Derek’s material.
Outreach report India
- A seminar on Spiritual Warfare was held recently in southern India (Tamil Nadu State) where a group of prayer warriors taught on spiritual warfare. This gave insight into praying for the nation and political situations and encouraged all attendees to “stand in the gap” for revival in India and surrounding regions.
- Teaching on From Curse to Blessing has resulted in many testimonies, including that of a woman who had severe asthma and was not sure if she could even come to the meeting. But she did, and she was completely healed as she listened to the teaching!
