My dad was a pastor. Every time our family moved to a new assignment, people would warn him of “the trouble-makers.” You know about troublemakers—the ones who give constant grief on committees, in church, or at work. Dad would pay special attention to the cranky, irritable, griping ones. He’d search for the good things in each one and affirm each person for their strengths...
Namibia is one of the most sparsely populated countries of the world, with about two people per square kilometer. One reason for this is that average rainfall is comparable to some parts of the Sahara desert. Here in this region lives a man named Neville. Neville was in charge of planning and coordinating camp meeting. As the time for the camp meeting drew near, he and his family were sitting outside on the veranda talking. As they considered the coming event, they began to get very discouraged. It was very dry. There had been no rain for quite some time. As a result, the animals were in bad shape. There was no food, and camp meeting was looming on the horizon. Speakers had already been invited. Money had already been spent to purchase the tickets. But there was no water. What were they going to do?
During my colporteur work, I met Mr. Sam* - a senior, middle-aged businessman. As soon as I entered his office, I told him the purpose of my visit and presented my wonderful books. I could immediately see that he was not really interested and that there was something else in mind. "Sorry, brother," he said, "I do not want to buy any books today." I quietly prayed, asking God to help me tell him something that would reach him. At that moment he asked me: "Why are you doing this work?"...
A serious dilemma unexpectedly emerged one Friday morning. The architect of our VitaSalus Wellness Center announced that we urgently needed to put up railings around several buildings. “If someone falls, you’ll be in trouble,” he warned. We knew that he was right. VitaSalus — a clinic that works in harmony with the ethical, professional and spiritual values upheld by the Seventh-day Adventist Church — is located atop a mountain near the town of Penela, about 115 miles (185 kilometers) north of Portugal’s capital, Lisbon. The architect put the total cost of the railings at 8,000 euros ($9,850 USD). But he said we could pay only 4,000 euros by restricting the railings to the highest places.

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.
