Luke 2:8, NKJV
Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.

Pray that the Father will help us to expect great things from Him as we attempt great things for Him! Pray that we will never see anyone as being too insignificant to hear the gospel.

North African Breakthroughs

by CMW

John and Rachel Miller have so much love for the Zaila people of North Africa that they drove nine treacherous days to reach their remote village. They traversed miles of sand dunes with no cellular reception. Beset by multiple breakdowns, the Millers finally arrived at their new home, a hut that offered little protection from the 120-degree weather. As their village did not have a market for fresh food, the Millers brought their own supply of dehydrated vegetables, fruit, and meat, which they rationed very carefully.
The village chief told John that his people were hungry and did not have a produce market. He asked John, an agriculturist, to help start a garden. The chief also invited Rachel to “help staff a small clinic that offered the only medical care within a three-day radius in any direction.”
The Zaila people receive indoctrination by Islamic radicals. Following a week of special teaching by Islamic religious leaders, the Zailas turned cold towards John and Rachel. Still, the Millers persist in showing God’s love to the Zailas. John continues his work in the community garden. Rachel has seen three children healed through prayer in Jesus’ name.

Pray that God would soften the hearts of the Zailas to Christ and His servants. Pray that they would recognize the provision of fresh food and medical healing as God’s blessings. Ask God to reveal Jesus as the Truth and their only hope.
