GTC STARMAN
Home from Rwanda and Back to Africa
MISSION SOS MADAGASCAR


There is a clear voice of supernatural ministry rising over the continent of Africa. The "dark continent" is now clearly set aside by God to be a source of light. We returned from the recent Africa Teen Challenge Leadership Training (over 286 registered from 27 nations) with such excitement about what God is doing, As you read this. we are back to Africa. We are here in Antananarivo, Madagascar for the SOS Signs and Wonders Festival with international evangelist, Johannes Amritzer, and a team of 289 missionaries from around the world, including some amazing TC leaders.

With your help, God has made a way for 17 Teen Challenge leaders from across Africa to join us in “Tana” for the street meetings and Festival at Alahora Stadium. We are expecting over 100,000 people at the main soccer stadium. We appreciate your prayers as we go.

The founder of Mission SOS, Johannes, is a graduate of Sweden Teen Challenge over 25 years ago. We are delighted to partner and connect our TC team with this amazing paradigm of supernatural ministry. This is my fourth festival. God has spoken to the team and Mission SOS is hosting festivals in the capitol cites of every African nation. Perhaps your TC, church or a team would like to join us in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia November 4-14, or Kigali, Rwanda in 2018.

TEEN CHALLENGE AFRICA
JOINS MISSION SOS IN MADAGASCAR

Our Africa team, led by Jacobus Nomdoe, Africa Regional Director, along with Willy Rumenera, East Africa Regional Director (Rwanda) and other leaders from South Africa, Cote D'Ivoire, Kenya, and Uganda will join 289 missionaries around the world. in Antananarivo. Please pray for the MISSION SOS team, Evangelist Johannes and our TC leaders. As significant as the impact of the Festival- on the nation, all of us will carry that call to supernatural ministry back to our nations and TC Centers.

IWAWA ISLAND CORRECTIONAL FACILITY
I have to take a moment to revisit the minitry at IWAWA. The impact of the prison outreach continues to be felt across the nation as Rwanda TC Director, Willy Rumenera is working closely with the Prison Director and federal leadership to cast vision for a dynamic partnership between Teen Challenge, Living Free, and the prisons.

Human Rights Watch
has called the remote prison complex the Alcatraz of Rwanda. Some call it Guantanamo. It was a five hour drive from Kigali Rwanda through the volcanoes of the Virunga Mountains then 90 minutes across Lake Kivo in police launches.
Despite the long drive, rough waters and challenging trip, we were amazed at how God touched the hearts of the men. At first, many were cold, aloof and distant until their hearts hearts were softened by the powerful testimony of the TC men and the moving of God's spirit. At the altar call, thousands responded to ask Jesus into their hearts. I pray you will enjoy the video link as we take you across the water, behind the barbed wire of Rwanda, then on to the Philippines & Syrian Refugee Camps as you continue to send us to Unleash the Hope.

We are expecting over 100,000 people and believing God for more than 30,000 confessions of faith. It is our heart to see the Holy Spirit reconcile religious, tribal, and political differences in this politically torn nation. Madagascar has experienced a decline in most social and economic indicators, and remains one of the poorest countries in the world. Though a large segment of the population has long experienced frequent disruptions stemming from natural disasters, international economic shocks, malnutrition or sickness, the situation has deteriorated considerably since 2013. The five-year transitional period has been characterized by institutional decay, widespread corruption and illegal trafficking - - The huge cyclone that hit earlier this year has made things only worse. Pray for safety, Please pray for travel connections -for sound –light and for the move of God as we Reach out to the lost And connect with men of vision to pioneer a new teen challenge center in this genuinely needy country.

E-VOTION

God's answer to,
"What if?"

Bern


18 He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me.
2 Samuel 22:18

Have you ever felt like your life is in a constant state of conflict against overwhelming odds?

Is it only me, or do you sometimes have a sense of frustration as wave after wave of opposition breaks over your life. Sometimes, even in times of blessing, I'm not sure if I'm healing up from the last battle or getting ready for the next one. It's not your size--it's your source. That's why the promise of this scripture is so significant to all of us. You are not alone.

God has called us together for fellowship. Brother Don Wilkerson once defined fellowship as "two fellows on a ship." The only problem is most of us think we are on a cruise ship when we are on a battle ship. In today's paradigm, we have forgotten about warfare. When the enemy is at war with our soul we cannot live as though everything is normal. As long as children die and Satan labors to kill steal and destroy, creation is in a state of perpetual warfare. We dare not think anything is normal.

Never forget, this is not the LOVE BOAT, it is the LIFE boat. God is calling us to real-life and His priority is not comfort, it is character. That can only be forged in the fire of conflict. Don't think when the battle comes, there must something wrong with you. The greater the battle- the greater the victory, the greater the resistance, the greater the life. The devil never wastes bullets on dead soldiers. 

You are not alone if you feel your task is too great. Remember a small shepherd facing a giant or a childless 99 year old man shopping for baby furniture with an aging wife "past the years." The Scripture is full of people whose comfortable world was interrupted by the supernatural call of God. I love the story of Moses. As God shared the promise that he would use Moses as a vessel of deliverance, Moses begins to pepper God with his doubts as he listed one excuse after the other.

Gods answer to, "What if?" was answered simply with 5 words to to Moses, "What is in your hand.?"

Whether it's a staff, a snake, a pen, or an empty hand, with the promise of God to fill it, there will always be more than enough. As 2 Samuel shares, your enemy may appear more powerful than our human strength. But he is NEVER stronger than our God.

Stop comparing your enemy with your strength. Compare the opposition to God's promise and then step out.

God's answer to, "What if?" are still the words He gave to Moses, "What is in your hand?"

What is in YOUR hand? Put it in His hand. Its not the conflict its the call. It is not your size, It is your source.

PRAYER

FOCUS

Again I say
unto you,
That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done
for them of
my Father which is in heaven.

1) ANTANANARIVO, MADAGASCAR MISSION SOS

We are inviting our E-ntercession partners to join the Global team from Mission SOS for and prayer. Please pray for the upcoming Mission SOS Festival in Antananarivo, Madagascar.  As you read this we left Friday noon and will arrive Antananarivo Midnight Saturday- Lance Stoddard, Fernando well as our Cote D'Ivior The South Africa Team have already arrived.

Please pray for traveling blessings for the Global Teen Challenge team and all of the 289 missionaries who are traveling to Madagascar for the Mission SOS signs and Wonders Festival. Pray that God will use them to minister to the lost, broken and hurting. "LIKE" TC Mainline Evangelism on Facebook for daily updates and prayer declarations. (sorry to those who have been unable to friend me on Face-book as I have reached my 5,000 limit, but you can join us on TC Mainline EVANGELSIM)

Pray for over 200 Sunday services as the team members minister in local churches across Antananarivo to Launch MISSION SOS ANTANANRIVO 2017.

Pray that God will work in and through each member of the Global Teen Challenge team as we take the amazing love of The Father to the streets of Antananarivo. .Intercessors, Festival Coordinator Fernando Declarative asked that we begin by focusing on these prayed declarations:

  • John 6:44 - The God will "draw" the lost to the field
  • Joel 3:14 - Those is "valley of decision" would say yes to the Gospel
  • Joshua 8:1 - For God to deliver us to us the king (strongman) of Tana and those held captive would be set free. 
  • Mark 4:39 - For the festival field to be dry from rain - We need great weather!
  • John 4:34 - Team, Evangelist and leaders FOCUS!

2) LONDON: Greenfeld Tower Fire


So grateful for God's protection over Teen Challenge. Please pray for Phil Hills, President if TC United Kingdom and Javier director TC London as they they minister to needs. Please pray for the families and victims in the Greenfell Tower tragedy.
This furious inferno in a 24 story Apartment in London left at least 30 dead, 78 injured and over 100 still missing, including entire families. Families are searching for loved ones have blanketed the area near the tower with posters searching for answers, and sorrow is quickly turning to anger over whether recent building works were properly done. Pray for God's protection on those that may still be trapped inside, wisdom for workers still sifting through the rubble.

3) FAVOR FOR THE GOSPEL

TC Centers in nations around the world are facing increasing opposition. From Pakistan to India to the Eastern Bloc both religiious and politcal oppostion are raising threats against the proclaimation of the Word.

For example, one sensitive nation writes:

We'd like to ask you to please pray for us.  Although the ministry is going forward and people continue to come to the Lord, last week a horrible letter was written about our us on the internet. The person who wrote the article complained to the news (in the capitol) concerning our literature. The woman who has written lies about us ministry was interviewed and also someone from our minitry. 

Would you please pray against the lies of the enemy, and that what was meant for evil will actually turn out for good.  Please pray that somehow the Lord would be glorified through this attack. Thank you!  It's very serious.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Religious persection, government oppostition and a hostile press have made serious attacks in a number nations in the laast 4 weeks Will you stand with us that the Lord will cause the enemy who has raised up these attacks against the proclaiamation of the Gospel to be defeated before them … as he comes in against them in one way, he will flee before in seven ways, in the name of Jesus!  Deuteronomy 28:7

What the enemy has meant for evil, Lord, you will turn around for good in all of the nations for the saving of many lives, as they receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  Genesis 50: 20

Pray that God will strengthen and encourage the believers at TC because Jesus said,"Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for my sake."  Matthew 5:10.

I truly believe that In spite of the escalating dangerous circumstances, that God is in control. Even what the enemy means for evil God will use and turn the enemy’s attack against him. The more they attack,  the more people with a heart for truth will see that TC has a word of freedom fr this hour and a promise of LIFE!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pray with us for the global advance of the gospel. Pray for workers for the Harvest ...Teen Challenge Centers in 120 countries need staff and we currently have invitations to start Teen Challenge in over 32 new nations. They are crying out for help. They need the power of God to meet a pressing social need... but we know it has a SPIRITUAL ROOT.
We offer SPIRITUAL RESOURCES to meet PRACTICAL needs.
MATTHEW 9: 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. 38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”
