Calling All Prayer Warriors

Calling All Prayer Warriors

Welcome to February’s newsletter all Prayer for Africa warriors.

 

Over the last year we have been praying for different problems in different African countries, so we have decided led by the Holy Spirit and James 2v14-26 “What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds?”, to move on into putting our faith into action.  We have decided to set up a charity called Africa Hopes in Christ designed to play it’s part in Africa’s spiritual and commercial development and our Prayer for Africa support group will continue to prayer for Africa’s problems and cover the charity’s activities in prayer.

 

We aim to provide:

  • Business Loans and Mentoring   
  • Infra- structure funding
  • Health systems funding
  • Marriage and Family support
  • Local churches overseeing all local activities

 

Our goals and values are

INTEGRITY              LOVE               PROVISION

 

 

 

Our desire is to MAKE A DIFFERENCE and we believe that

Together We Can

 

    • Business Loans and Mentoring

Africans have a massive amount of talent and resources. However lack of knowledge, encouragement and funds hinder many intelligent Africans from achieving their God-given potential.

 

      • Infra-structure funding  Africa according to the African Development Bank is growing economically by leaps and bounds but poor infra structure such as lack of roads, trains, electricity, internet and good tele communication etc are greatly needed to assist continued growth.

 

      • Health systems funding

Incidences like AIDS AND Ebola ,lack of clean water and sanitation has continued to cripple Africa and until good health systems are in place, prosperity remains a myth.

    • Marriage and Family support

The smallest unit of a civilized community is the family. Strengthening family ties, supporting Christian marriages and the bringing up of the next generation in a Godly and Christlike manner is a necessity for all peoples including Africans

 

  • Local churches overseeing all local activities

 

We have decided that the best way to provide assistance is through the local churches, where we can find committed Christians with a passion for their people and directed by the HOLY SPIRIT of CHRIST

 

Why support AHIC?

  • We will liaise with Africans at every step of the process resulting in sustainable and effective assistance

 

  • We will make every effort to understand the culture of every African country we work in treating everyone with dignity and respect

 

  • We appreciate the fact that Africans have many talents and resources at their disposal and that’s all that is sometimes needed is encouragement and access to funds

 

  • Our values of integrity, love and provision permeate throughout all our activities

 

  • All local churches will be carefully selected by recommendation , vetted and agree to be monitored by a multi national accountancy firm operating in the particular country to ensure effective use of funds

 

  • We will provide transparent financial accounts and activities on our website and  monthly newsletter. At present we are still developing our website which will be when completed www.ahic.org.uk

 

  • We aim to play our part in Africa’s spiritual and commercial development. The Prayer for Africa support group covers all the charity’s activities in prayer.

 

We have been inspired by organisations such as Release who practically help and pray for the persecuted church worldwide,  Tearfund who seek to eliminate poverty wherever it finds it and non Christian organisations like AVAAZ (group of socially conscious ordinary people) who campaign successfully against  injustice, inhumane and  unfair practises worldwide. Being a part of these organisations has given us courage and a deep desire to do something likewise.

 

However not only organisations but our  heroes have been individuals like Joni Eareackson Tada, a quadriplegic (paralysed from the neck downwards) who stubbornly clung to the Lord Jesus Christ during the darkest periods of her life and years later, went to college, managed a bookshop, is a public speaker, manages a charity providing wheelchairs for the 3rd world disabled and married the man of her dreams.

 

Looking back and taking inspiration from these people we believe with God anything is possible and my motto is “With Christ in the vessel we will smile at the storm”  So with much trepidation I ask you to join me make a success of Africa Hopes in Christ.  We are  at the moment in the process of registering the charity with the charity commission, setting up a website, social media presence , bank account and contacting our contacts in Africa. We propose to start activities in Sierra Leone, Ghana and South Africa. Starting with funding and mentoring  local business people with great business ideas.

1. Pray for Charity Commission Registration success as this is the most important issue at present

 

2. Donate ( We are in the process of setting up a charity bank account but in the meantime please contact Ymaon 01895 270505 or 07506229064with your donations if so led by the Holy Spirit)
