An Outbreak of Prayer

IMG_4743No photograph can capture or express the power of prayer we have been experiencing in our meetings over the last month. In the face of hard trials and painful circumstances the body of Christ has rallied together to seek God. We have met in early morning hours and have stayed late through night vigils. All I can say after this month of such earnest intense seeking, is that God hears His people when they cry.

This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles Psalm 34:6

We have cried out with all our hearts and Jesus has come to NCF church and has begun to pour out His love through our hearts. Experiencing the raw power of the Love of God is not just some sweet thing but is a wrenching and tearing away as we sense God’s broken heart and passion for those who are perishing or those suffering right now for the cause of Jesus Christ. When it seems time has stood still at the altar and no one wants to leave of say Amen, then the earnest intense longings of His Spirit begins to penetrate into every hidden inner place and stamp His image there.

After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly Acts 4:31


Missions in our Back Yard


Our Bhutanese friend is so proud of the sunflowers that surround their home. Our city is rapidly filling with refugee people coming to find a new life here. All our lives we have been told that the mission field begins just outside the doors of the church. How true it has become!

But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?  And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? That is why the Scriptures say, “How beautiful are the feet of messengers who bring good news!”[ Romans 10:14-15

Faces of India

Here are some pictures of us having fun with kids from our project in Chengmari, West Bengal - India.
Aqui estão algumas fotos nossas nos divertindo com as crianças do nosso projeto em Chengmari, Bengala do Oeste - India.

Our Pastor recently returned from another missions trip to the northern border region of India. I was so privileged to go a few years ago but on this time around could only support in prayer. These children are in truth the greatest riches of India and greatly valued by God. When we go in the love of Christ to serve we will discover how precious it is to be a small part of God’s big family!
