Pray for NLM in Albania

June 30, 2013

NLM's first show in Albania was in what is considered one the "Mecca” of Albania. The local partners told us that it is a city of 18,000 people and with only 15 known Christians.

The concert site was opposite a large mosque. A crowd of around 500 people gathered (plus a large group of people watching from the mosque across the street). Throughout the show, several fights broke out and the atmosphere was tense.

When the show finished, Ben was able to preach from the stage, calling the crowd to follow the Jesus who had come to pay the penalty for the bad things they'd done.  Aaron was able to invite those who wanted to know more about Jesus to join him off the stage. A large group came to the fire and listened to Aaron share about following Jesus.

As Aaron was sharing, an angry man started walking through the crowd yelling at all the people to stop listening to us. He was telling them that they were Muslims and that they followed Allah. It was a very tense moment and though it was clear that many wanted to listen, things soon started breaking up. This man started yelling, saying that they already know God and that He is Allah.

Then this man rallied a group of around 100 people for an impromptu Islamic rally in front of the mosque. They began chanting "allahu akbar" and other Islamic phrases, clapping and working themselves up.  Despite all this going on, the team was able to pray and talk with many people.  Over 40 people filled out surveys because they wanted to receive more information about Jesus - very significant in a town of only 15 believers! Our local church partners will pray and follow up with each one of them.

We are very thankful for God's protection and even more aware that we are in a battle for people's souls. We do not fight against flesh and blood, but powers and principalities. Please pray for the tour, that God would stir up hearts to sink him.  Pray too for protection for the band and team.

Chatting the gospel

June 15, 2013

The team is in a town east of Ankara where they played music and were involved in many conversations.  There's been at least one invite for breakfast to share more!  Pray that these 'gospel chats' would bear fruit.

Great answers already!

Thank you so much for praying! Smiles and relationships are restored in Kazakhstan and things are getting moving.  The team in Kyrgyzstan had an excellent day of rehearsal and Chris, one of the singers, has proven to be an amazing sound man!  What a blessing. Keep up the prayers! Great music is good but a clear presentation of the gospel fallling on fertile, hungry hearts is even better.

Prayer needed in Kazakhstan

May 15, 2013

Our team member leading an outreach in Kazakhstan is having a specific difficulty today – please do pray for this. There is some disunity with the local organizer over financial issues regarding the tour. There is some anger and distrust at the moment. Would you please ask God to give a spiritual breakthrough?   UPDATEGod has answered your prayers!!  Good relationships seem to be restored and communication is now clearer.  Thank you for praying!  Keep it up - two full weeks of attacking the enemy's kingdom only starting!

Off to Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan

May 14, 2013

Please pray for two different teams who will be ministering in Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan for the next 2 weeks or so. Especially pray for team unity as new relationships are formed and people cope with the stress of being in a new country with a new bunch of people.
