Purposeful Africa’s time at the Finishers Forum in Ft. Collins, CO was such a blessing to us. Check out the picture of our booth! We’re very pleased with the way it looks. There were some great break-out sessions that centered around helping people prepare to do missions and there were at least 4 to 6 topics to choose from for those sessions. We were able to connect with many people who were interested in what Purposeful Africa is hoping to accomplish in West Africa.

In addition we were able to meet and spend a little time with George Verwer, the founder of Operation Mobilization. He was the keynote speaker and did a fantastic job. Thank you for praying for us while we were traveling and attending the Forum.

After two years of development, Crown Financial has just released their brand new film learning experience, “God Provides.” This is an excellent series that should be viewed by leaders in every ministry and organization. We think that leaders everywhere will find this film very valuable.

What is God Provides?

“Throughout history, people have wrestled with the concept of trusting God to meet their needs versus relying on the world. Through stirring accounts found in the Bible, God reveals how He wants to be our ultimate Provider.

This film learning experience offers a rich, dramatic journey through six theater-quality, epic short films and printed companion guide that can be used for individual or group study.”

There is a total of six short films in this series. They are:

  • Widow and Oil (from 2 Kings 4:1-7)
  • Jeremiah’s Call (from Jeremiah 29:1-14)
  • Abraham’s Reward (from Genesis 12-15:6)
  • Abraham and Isaac (from Genesis 22:1-18)
  • Rich Man and Lazarus (from Luke 16:19-31)
  • Lifted Up (from John 3: 1-17)

Order the series today by visiting Crown Financial’s website. This valuable resource is a great investment.

“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”

Phillipians 4:19 (NIV)

Do Questions Lead to Actions?

Filed under: Changing Lives,Partners,Prayer Requests — TimMc @ 1:16 pm

questions

Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you truly love me?” He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Take care of of my sheep.” John 21:16 (NIV)

Take care of my sheep. Peter took a rough, circuitous route to ultimately accomplish what Christ wanted of him…but he finally became ‘the rock’ Christ desired him to be. Peter, after hearing the questions, finally responded with actions that made a positive eternal impact upon our world.

What questions are being asked of you? What are the actions that those questions beg?

Earlier this month, I came across a great article that displays how we process those questions and ultimately respond with actions that make a difference. The article is called “One important question can lead to important actions” and was written by Nigel Alston. I would encourage you to read the article and prayerfully consider what God may be asking of you within your own life and circumstances. What is He calling you to do? How are you going to respond?

For all of us at Purposeful Africa, we know that God has called us to action on behalf of the widows and orphans who are struggling throughout all of West Africa. Our response, our “action” is being formed right now. We are praying for partners who also feel God calling them to act on behalf of the precious lives who are struggling throughout the nations of West Africa. Are you sensing God’s call to minister among these folks with us? If so, know that we are praying for you!

Purposeful Africa is Working with Finishers Project

Filed under: Partners,Prayer Requests — TimMc @ 7:16 pm

Purposeful Africa is serious about people of faith getting involved in Africa and we are actively recruiting to that end. To assist in that effort, we have joined Finishers Project where thousands of people have expressed an interest in serving in missions. Finishers Project is a place for people to match their passion and preferences for serving God with scores of ministry organizations. We anticipate that many people will join Purposeful Africa to be involved in sharing the hope we have in Jesus with the people of the nations in which we will serve.

Colossians 3:23-24 (NIV)
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Please pray that Purposeful Africa will be able to partner with people who have a heart for West Africa and a desire to serve in the roles where we currently have needs. At the moment we need to fill four positions:

Mission Representatives
Marketing Manager
Marketing Sales Personnel
Media Development Specialist (This is the most critical and pressing position at the moment.)

**If you’d like more information about any of these positions, please feel free to contact us at (888) 771-8717 or email tim@purposefulafrica.org.
