Dear Friends and all who love our wonderful Lord,
Hot prayer item: Evangelist Tre Faulkner [Pictured right in Arusha yesterday with his 3 month bride Kristen!] is with us right now and we are having a wonderful time in the Tanzania mining town of Merurani. 4000 or more were there yesterday [top photo] and many found Christ and were healed last night. The place NEEDS a touch of God- with an estimated 70% HIV infection in the town area people know they have only one hope- that is in Christs salvation gift for us all. Pray with us as Tre works with Lyimo until Sunday 28th Nov 'bringing in the harvest' that is very ripe over here.
Lyimo, Lyndall and I had a great time in Leshoto with 50 leaders in the 'baby' stage of starting to work together in the church. They are strong in prayer and desiring God to move.... but there many doubters and problems to sort out as you can imagine in our work of building the churches together. But God is at work in a special way and He is bringing together those that have a heart and an ear to hear what He is saying today so we are very encouraged.
In Katesh, you can see
[Below right] Gidoris Catholic grandfather 'going for it' with
a Pentecostal pastor and Lutheran pastor ..... sharing how God was
teaching them how to love with Christs
love. It is
not every day that this happens but we sure saw
God move in that place. True unity
HAS to be based on the love of Christ in our hearts ..... otherwise it
will never work. But we are starting to see Jesus prayer in John 17
starting to be fulfilled.
FINALLY! This might be my last update before Christmas..... so God bless you over this season as we remember Gods Love for us again to us in sending the BEST present anyone could give!
Pray with us:
Blessings upon you,
Mike & Lyndall and the Imara Team
PS West Australia trip Feb/March: Lyndall is now coming with me to WA. We will be there at Country Rising in Mount Barker and look forward to seeing our WA South West friends there. We will be spending time with our families while we are back so won't get to see too many church groups. However there is a special missions time being planned by Peter Hack at Cornerstone on the 12th March so, if you would like to see us [we hope so!] maybe we can meet up with you there.
