Bien Aimées

Nous voulons vous inviter à remercier le Seigneur pour sa grâce sur moi sur mon époux et sur tous les membres de la famille durant toute cette année 2018. Nous louons également le Seigneur pour notre Conférence internationale de l’Afrique Francophone du 7 au 18 Juillet 2018, qu’Il a rendu possible, et pour la réussite même de cette Conférence à Bamako au Mali. Nous Le remercions pour les âmes qui ont été libérées et gagnées à Christ pendant cette période. Nous le Remercions pour la joie et satisfaction que Dieu a données aux participantes de la Conférence, et pour leurs nouveaux engagements de suivre fidèlement le Maître et d’accomplir son œuvre avec zèle et intégrité. Nous prions pour l’organisation des conférences nationales dans chacun de ces 15 pays et que tous les thèmes qui ont été enseignés pendant la Conférence Internationale cette année au Mali soient repris dans ces pays pour une transformation profonde des femmes. Que Dieu vous bénisse, Madeleine Gouentoueu, Leader Tirzah Afrique Francophone.

Dear Beloved Sisters,

We want to invite you to thank the Lord for his grace on me on my husband and on all the members of the family during all this year 2018. We also praise the Lord for our International Conference of Francophone Africa from July 7 to 18, 2018, which He has made possible, and for the very success of this Conference in Bamako, Mali. We thank Him for the souls who were released and won over to Christ during this time. We thank Him for the joy and satisfaction that God has given to the participants of the Conference, and for their new commitments to faithfully follow the Master and accomplish his work with zeal and integrity. We pray for the organization of national conferences in each of these 15 countries and that all the themes that were taught during the International Conference this year in Mali are taken up in these countries for a profound transformation of women.

God bless you.

Dear Sisters,

Our June was busy with visiting doctors, laboratories, back to doctors, because of Victor’s cancer. Every time when we went to the doctor’s office, we were shocked and came out in depression. Only Lord is our hope, and healer. We trust in Him, Thank you for praying for my husband.We didn’t stop with our activities.

  • We start July with tree days retreat for pastors and their wives from Serbia. There are 30 couples registered. Pray for physical and spiritual rest for them. For some of them these days are the only rest during the year. 

  • After this, churches start camps for children and young people all over Serbia. Pray for God’s wisdom for teachers and lots of patience, then protection over children, and that they would experience God's love, and changes in their relationship with the Lord. 

  • Last days of July and first two days in August we are invited to speak to pastors and their wives in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Bosnia is mostly Muslim and they are in the whole country only 600 new born Christians. Pastors need encouragement there. Please pray for this event also, that we could be vessel used by God for them.

MOTIVOS DE GRATIDÃO E PEDIDOS DE ORAÇÃO – JULHO 2019

Gratitude

God be praised for our great achievements in the ministry of Tirzah Brasil. In June we united in prayer for the CMO (World Prayer Campaign). Meetings, vigils, lectures and much prayer during the first week of the month. A very precious time that the Lord has reserved for us to be together in prayer for Brazil and for the whole world. Thank you for prayers for my granddaughter Rebekah. She is developing and improving every day. She is 2 months and 15 days of life.

Prayer requests:

  • Pray for Brazil, its rulers and projects that are in process. May the Lord move the hearts of rulers so that they may look upon the poor and needy.

  • Pray for the care of the care taker. We are having weekly meetings with people who care for the disabled, relatives with cancer and / or psychopathologies. God has been gracious to us. The encounters have helped to ease the burden. Pray for resources for this project that was born in the heart of God.

  • Pray for our work to help the women who live in the riverside region. Since Wednesday, this group of women TIRZAH Pará are in the islands of Marajó giving support and training to new Coordinators. Be praying for us. Some trips are done on this boat. They are made after the services to save time. Because of the distances, I count on your prayers.
