“C 2 C” … Africa (by Debbie Anderes)

Dear PTH Friends,


I’ll go where you want me to go, dear Lord;
Over mountain or plain or sea.
I’ll say what you want me to say, dear Lord;
I’ll be what you want me to be.

On the evening of May 25th Nancy, Sarah, and yes, you and I, will be heading to Africa.  A long journey of more than 6 weeks.
We are going from C 2 C, The Cape to Cairo, Africa.

Isaiah 6:8 – Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,
Whom shall I send?  And who will go for us?  
And I said, HERE AM I.  SEND ME…

Jeremiah 1:9 – Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, 
And the Lord said to me;  “Behold, I have put My Word in your mouth, see,
I have this day set you over the Nations and over the Kingdoms, 
To root out and to pull down,
To destroy and to throw down, 
To build and to plant.

My Lord has need of me!

I love traveling along in these assignments in prayer over mountain or plain or sea.  You may not actually be traveling, but I ask you to go with me in prayer as if you there.  You, too, will be considered world travelers and doing the very thing Jeremiah 1:9 says. To root out, pull down, destroy, throw down, then build and plant.  

The assignment is huge and the mandate from heaven pushes them forward.  We covet your prayers that put wind under their feet.  

This assignment has rough terrain, and some places could be more dangerous than places they have been before.  The chances of difficulties are higher than ever.  However, we do not go out in fear, but your prayers will keep them hidden and strong to complete what God has asked them to do. 


Prayer tips:
* Wisdom and understanding in the knowledge of Him;
* Protection and safety for both N & S and their families; 
* Health and wellbeing; energy, strength and right focus;
* Traveling mercies; 
* Divine appointments, favor, and open doors; 
* Provision. 

My strategy: 
* Learn all you can about Africa.
* Follow along and mark your calendar.
* Get a map of Africa and ask God how He wants you to pray or what to concentrate on. 
* Google and study the area that gives tips, as if you were right there.
* Check the weather; they will be adjusting to climate changes.
* Set your phone clock to fit the time zone where they are traveling, to cover them more effectively.

Something fun:  
Get something that reminds you of Africa; a colorful journal, a piece of jewelry, and wear it as a reminder to pray. Yes even a colorful scarf, artwork or music. 

Even in your sleep God will be praying through you through dreams or visions.  If you have a dream or vision concerning these things, I encourage you to send it to Debbie Grimes. At times they may be a warning or a direction or a change of plans.  Be sensitive, because even if it doesn’t make sense to you, it may be the piece that makes the picture complete.

And remember, we are going to Africa!  Let’s go plow & plant the seeds for The Kingdom of God. God loves Africa!  
Whom shall I send?  And who will go with us?  

Ephesians 3:20, 21 – Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, 
According to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen
