A few weeks ago, we had 28 lepers show up on Sabbath morning for worship. It was an unusually high turnout. The next week, we encouraged our volunteers to pray daily for 30 lepers to come the following Sabbath. To our pleasant surprise, 32 lepers showed up the next Sabbath. We then decided to pray for 35 lepers to come the next Sabbath…and God answered our prayers. We had 35 lepers worshipping with us today! What a joy it was to see lepers coming to worship for the very first time. I can think of only one thing sadder than an abandoned, disfigured leper with missing limbs—an abandoned, disfigured leper with missing limbs who does not know Jesus...
Everything was ready for opening night! I was to conduct a reaping campaign in the city of Malang, Indonesia. In the morning, I did evangelism for the children in our church school. The pastors and our children’s leaders had been working hard to prepare the groundwork, but on the first afternoon after lunch, the sky turned dark and soon it was pouring buckets of water down. Oh, no! Few people would come out to the evangelistic meeting in this kind of rain! There was nothing we could do, but we could pray.
The Australasian Missionary College in Australia opened in 1897. Two years later, right as the college was in the middle of a very important building project, they received bad news from the United States (US). American church members had been supporting the college with special offerings, but this assistance was suddenly cut off because of banking issues. Now the college leadership had a big problem...
A few weeks ago, our Adventist World Radio (AWR) station in Kabwe, Zambia, aired a series of live evangelistic meetings. Mason, an Adventist young man, wanted his grandmother to listen. She was confused about the different religions and days of worship, so he devised a plan. Mason says, “I tuned in every night, and people gathered to listen to my small radio right here in our village...."

Praising God for how He showed up in the 10 Days of Prayer. God called young and old to a revival by the Spirit! We met together to pray in small groups led by elders, and I facilitated from the front to keep young and old engaged. We moved everyone into the fellowship hall for our Sabbath worship service so that the rest of the church could experience 10 Days of Prayer with it’s fellowship, prayer, singing, and testimonies in small groups.
Our 10 Days of Prayer and the all-night prayer session was a blessing. Usually the ending of the all-night begins to slow down. But this time the last couple of hours (led by young people who shared their testimonies) were really powerful!
This was our first time participating in the Ten Days of Prayer. During the ten days, we had a 24-hour prayer chain. Basically, one person prays for an hour and at the end of the hour calls the next prayer warrior to pray. I am in awe of what God did. Chains of anger, unforgiveness, and many more were broken. We are enjoying unity in our church. The twenty-four prayer team members have asked me to keep the team. To God be the glory!
Thank you so much for 10 Days of Prayer. We joined this program in 2013. We wanted to let you know the amazing things that have happened to our church since then. It is revived and growing little by little. Member interest in soul winning activity is growing.
