Are you standing up for Israel?
Dated: 27 January, 2019
Dear Brother and Sisters in Christ.
I know that it is a long time since you have heard from your Archbishop but since the passing of my wife I have really struggled to stay afloat. I am convinced that it is only through your prayers and those of Bishop Hopewell and his family that I am here to tell you all that your Archbishop is back. Praise the Lord. The power of PRAYER IS MIGHTY, never ever doubt this, no matter what.
Now the time has come for us all to march forward towards the goals that each of us have set ourselves. It is all important to set GOALS, and once achieved then new and fresh goals NEED TO BE SET. As a young man just out of College I set myself 10 Goals all of which seemed impossible to achieve at the time of setting them, however over time I achieved all of those Goals. One was to meet Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11, well 25 years after setting this goal I did have a one to one meeting alone with Her Majesty. Another was to write and illustrate a successful book. This I did, and this book became a "BEST SELLER", and so on. So, no matter what goals you set with the help of Prayer, and others, you can achieve all of your goals.
It just takes time, dedication, inspiration, motivation and above all believing not only in yourself but also in Our Lord, who will be there with you every part of your journey towards the goal you set yourself. Next time I write to you all I shall write about Goal setting and pray that my words will help each of you attain what you seek. In closing this re-introduction of myself may I in my Capacity as your Archbishop BLESS each of you, and never lose your belief in Our Lord Jesus Christ.

We are calling for a 40 Day Global prayer for the world starting from the 1st day of February - 10 March, 2019 to ask God to show mercy and deliver us from all the current economic, political and natural disasters currently plaguing our world. There are intense poltical problems in Europe, with riots in France, Far Right movement rearing its ugly head again in Germany, riots in Sudan, chaos in Venezuela, Colunbia and Brazil. Donald Trump's policies are affecting many and dividing many opinions, North Korea remains a threat to the whole world and teher is turmoil in Gaza & great Palestinian unrest with stones and rockets being fired into Israel also. Let us pray fpr healing in our world.
It is written: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." - 2 Chronicles 7v14. Let us therefore seek God for His timely intervention that He may heal our land & nations. Only God is the answer! He is mighty to save us all!Travel Announcement: Travel To Israel

Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. 14 Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. - James 5v13-16
