Sub-Saharan African Peoples
Muslims of South Africa

The city of Cape Town has the largest group of indigenous Muslim people in South Africa. They trace their cultural and religious heritage back to Muslims brought from Indonesia to work for the colonial Dutch back in the 1600s. They have lived right next door to Christianity for 400 years and yet are one of the most insular and unreached populations in South Africa. Pray that they will see dreams and visions that point them to Christ. Pray that the Christians of Cape Town will reach out to them with the truth of the gospel! Pray that the veil will be lifted and that they will encounter the love of the Father through Jesus Christ, the Son.

Mombasa City, Kenya

(mahm-BAH-suh) - Workers write: "After six weeks of walking alongside and doing ministry with us, the group of college students will be returning to their homeland later this month. Most people come to the mission field to change others' lives, but time and time again, we see that the Lord is also radically transforming us inside and out. The Lord promises to instruct and teach us (Psalm 32:8), and His Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path (Psalm 119:105). It is our prayer that this radical transformation and guidance will not stop here in Africa but will continue in each of these college students' lives, wherever the Lord may direct their steps. Join us in praying that ending well here will not be the end of their continued growth and love for the nations."

Kampala, Uganda

(kahm-PAH-lah) - "There continues to be a lot of conversation among church leaders in Kampala and elsewhere in Uganda on the topic of leadership development," writes a Kampala Urban Team member. "Healthy leaders can be used of God to help churches become and remain healthy. These same leaders will be the ones who plant more churches and then train others to do the same. Recently, two pastors shared with me about their burden for training leaders. They are actively developing curriculum and are looking for people to be trainers. Please ask God to provide the curriculum, trainers, and resources needed to maximize the number of leaders being trained both in Kampala and throughout Uganda. Pray that the overflow of this fruit will be healthy churches, more churches planted, and missionaries sent out from Uganda churches. Pray for endurance for the trainers and trainees."

Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC)

The Congo Team asks you to pray as a group of Congolese partners leads a workshop on false prophets on July 15-18. They write: "Our team has identified this as a great need because people do not realize that this is a danger. If a person calls himself or herself a pastor, then they are listened to and trusted. The first part of the workshop will be a call to discernment, and then practical steps will be given on learning how to identify if something is consistent or not with the whole counsel of Scripture."

Sub-Saharan African Peoples
Pedi of South Africa

(PEH-dee) - There are several churches among the Pedi that mix true and false doctrines. Those who participate in these churches are basing their salvation on the works required by their church. Sadly, these church members have not been saved, but have become "twice as much a son of hell" (Matthew 23:15 NKJV). Pray that the light of the one true gospel of Jesus Christ will illuminate the darkness of their current beliefs and that they will become true children of God on His terms. "Jesus said to him, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me'" (John 14:6 NKJV).
