The core purpose of the Mathetes Trust is to help make disciples of Jesus in the local church. That means that we long to see churches whose members are learning to:
Love God and love one another
Live as Jesus lived
Pray as Jesus prayed
Minister to others in the power of the Spirit
Proclaim the gospel in word and deed
We know that prayer is a fundamental part of the Christian life, and we sometimes invite you to pray with us for particular things. So we are issuing our first prayer diary. It’s modelled on the longstanding Rooted in Jesus prayer diary, which it will now replace; it covers the next three months, starting with the Rooted in Jesus team currently working in Kenya.
An exciting update
A few weeks ago we invited you to pray with us for the Diocese of Kajo-Keji in South Sudan, where Bishop Emmanuel Murye and his colleagues are ministering to all those who have fled their homes for refugee camps in Uganda. As a result of your generosity we were able to send a financial contribution and replacement RinJ books to Uganda, and we are overjoyed to learn that Coordinator Nelson Saya has been able to train 35 Rooted in Jesus group leaders in the camps. Nelson writes:
To the glory of God we visited twelve churches in Morobi refugee camp in four places, we finish the program well and the people were able to testify that these program will bring revival because it has awakened them in their faith since they flee to the camp and it has comforted them. It gives them assurance that God is with them and also enables them to know that God cares for them more than any other creature on this earth.
We continue to pray for them, as for the many other churches with which we are in touch. You will find many of them in the prayer diary – including the two UK parish missions which we are helping with in the autumn.
Pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Eph 6.18.
Thank you for your prayer and support.
