March 2018 Trip to Nigeria – Day 1
The Loving Hands of Our Father
Day one of the journey has been filled with opportunities for the GTG Team (Jim, Brother Obi & Pastor Goodnews) to be the loving hands of our Heavenly Father.
As you are aware, Pastor Louis had a stroke several months ago. It was important to Jim to take the first day to visit with this beloved man of God. Before leaving for Nigeria, many asked him to lay hands on Pastor Louis and pray for a complete restoration of his health. That is exactly what our precious brothers did today. We received pictures and a video of them along with many other saints gathered around Pastor Louis praying for his health to be restored. Glory to God! Please agree with us in prayer as we ask God to heal Pastor Louis from the top of his head to the bottom of his feet – total restoration.
From there they visited the Beth Tory Orphanage. Sixty-five children with special needs and epilepsy live at this children’s home. Our brothers prayed with the children and staff, and in addition to sharing words of encouragement, they were able bless them with a donation. Jesus, thank you for your boundless love of those who are often forgotten! Jim describes this orphanage as one of the Holiest places he has ever been. “Pure religion as its best.”
Pure and unblemished religion [as it is expressed in outward acts] in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit and look after the fatherless and the widows in their distress, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the [secular] world.
James 1:27 (AMP)
God is on the move in Nigeria!
Please continue to pray that He will use the GTG team to bring glory to His name.
