Not Abandoned (from 2 Corinthians 4:9) is the theme for this year’s Inter- national Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (www.idop.ca), which Intercede helps to organize.

Some of Intercede’s partner ministries face strong persecution from enemies of the Gospel. Please remember our persecuted brothers and sisters in prayer today—and throughout the year.

“With joyous heart, I write that Himalaya Crusade is hosting the Golden Jubilee Celebration in Kalimpong,” reported HIC leader Joseph Sodemba. “The Celebration has been long pending due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the lockdown that continued for two years. Our Board decided to have a thanksgiving celebration before this year ends to commemorate the sovereign Lord’s guidance and faithfulness in the ministry of Himalaya Crusade. Fifty years of ministry is indeed a moment to thank the Lord and all the fellow workers who have toiled in their respective areas and have become torchbearers of this organization.”
8 Tuesday ~ Kenya—Praise Report!
“During our outreach house to house evangelism, one of our pastors was invited to go to pray for a lady who had been sick for several years,” reports Kenya Evangelism Team. “She had a swollen stomach like a pregnant woman. Pastor Stephen testified that when he entered the house of this sick lady where she lives with her daughter, he prayed before he sat down. Then the daughter told the pastor about the sickness of her mother. The daughter said they have tried every way in hospitals, witchdoctors, visited several false prophets who falsely prophesized the sickness of that mother and they paid them a lot of money. But all these did not change anything. This servant of God preached to them that healing comes from God not from man and asked them especially the sick lady because she could hear and talk, just to believe Jesus Christ the Son of God who took away all our sicknesses and diseases and hanged them on the cross. She believed the word of God and confessed her sins asking God to forgive her. She was delivered instantly. She can now walk without any support, her stomach is now normal, she can eat and is gaining strength slowly.”
