Prayer for the Calvary Pastors in East Africa

We are so blessed to be here with Senior Pastors and their wives from all over East Africa. We have couples here from Kenya, Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania and the Congo. The theme of the retreat is “Anchored Deep” and it is based upon Hebrews 6:19-20.

Hebrews 6:19-20 (NKJV) 19 This [hope] we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the [Presence] behind the veil, 20 where the forerunner has entered for us, [even] Jesus, having become High Priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek.

Some of these couples have come for the first time and have been so blessed. One couple in particular, Abdul and Lydia are working in a refugee camp and feeling totally alone.

There is so much suffering and hunger where they are and they are trying with almost no money to help the people physically and spiritually. Lydia was weeping with gratitude for the opportunity to be here. She said that she was beginning to wonder if God was still there or still cared about them. Being here has reminded them that God has not abandoned them and never will. Please continue to pray for them as they have such a difficult ministry.

We have had such a sweet time in worship and the teaching of God’s Word. Pastor David Grisanti and Pastor Stephen from Kenya have done a great job of rightly dividing the word of God

You can really see how God is ministering to these couples as so many came in discouraged and exhausted and now are refreshed and revived. Good is so good and faithful!

Please pray for these precious couples as they head back to their home churches and villages tomorrow. Pray that they will take all that the Lord told them and taught them and put it into practice.

Continue to pray for Sarah and Andrew Drey. They have been such a blessing here. Pray that the Lord will show them if this is where they are to be long term.

Thank you all for your prayers!

In Christ,

Gary, Carol, Andrew, Sarah, James, Majok and Laura
