Mountain Movers Prayer Fellowship – August 2014

Please help us by praying for us.
Then many will give thanks
for the blessing we receive
in answer to all these prayers.

2 Corinthians 1:11


Thank you for your prayers.

They mean everything to us.

God is leading the way for a two day soccer clinic for coaches and students combined with worship workshops in the jungle of Borneo. This news is exciting teenagers from the whole region. Worship teams and local leaders are coming forward to make an impact.

Event leader, Lari, said, This event is definitely bigger than all of us. If God isn’t behind it, it won’t happen. Our greatest need is prayer and finances.”
