Prayer Request: Week of April 2nd, 2017

The harvest is plenty.

Africa is the world’s second-largest and second-most-populated continent. It was the first new continent to which Islam spread after Muhammad founded the religion. And it’s here, under the hot African sun, that Islam is now experiencing rapid growth. In the next few years, researchers estimate that the number of Muslims in Africa will more than double!  “When we started our ministry, it was an area of resistance,” says Mustafa, a local champion from Ethiopia. But God’s Spirit is moving in Ethiopia and other countries across the African continent. Deep within the minds of the Muslims here, something is stirring. Deep in their heart of hearts, a new faith is awakening. “While resistance is common in this town, the harvest is plenty,” says Mustafa. “At first we got one person coming to us, then three or four people came to us. Now in the past six years, we have baptized more than 2,000 people!”

Please pray for the harvest in Africa!
