Matthew 9:35-38, NET
Then Jesus went throughout all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the Kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were bewildered and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Therefore ask the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest.”

Pray for graduates of Angaza Mission School to have the same compassionate attitude of Jesus, who wants all to have the chance to become part of His family.

Angaza Mission School

by LR

Full of excitement for new opportunities, the African university graduates packed their bags. They knew they were blessed to receive a prized education, and they knew that they were to be a blessing to the nations! After graduation, they had been further trained by Angaza Mission School, and were now headed for a one-month outreach to Kakuma Refugee Camp in northwestern Kenya. The environment of the refugee camp is challenging. It is a semi-arid area with dust storms, high temperature, poisonous snakes and scorpions. But the environment of the Kingdom they bring is full of freedom and hope.
Angaza Mission School mobilizes, trains, and releases a movement of passionate African university graduates to fulfill the Great Commission. They use a variety of ministry techniques in the refugee camp. Students bring Christ’s love to those who have fled wars and violence in many parts of East Africa. Most of the 180,000 refugees have fled from Sudan, and most come from Muslim or tribal religious backgrounds. Some are from places unreached with the gospel. They need the message that God is on their side, delivered by the warm embrace of an African neighbor.

Pray for strength, wisdom, and divine appointments for the students. Pray that God will use this program to empower the emerging mission movement in Africa and raise leaders and laborers for the Great Commission in answer to Matthew 9:35-38.
