Greg Beggs, AGWM Africa regional director, is in Nigeria with our general superintendent, Doug Clay, ministering at the Nigeria AG’s General Council. This national Fellowship is the largest in Africa, with 2.6 million adherents and members worshipping in more than 14,300 churches. There is ongoing church growth across Nigeria, but that nation faces many physical and spiritual attacks. Boko Haram, an Islamic extremist group, is responsible for widespread terrorism over the past 10 years. Would you join me in holding up in prayer Nigeria’s General Superintendent Chidi Okoroafor, pastors and church leaders as they gather and pray for their nation. Let’s believe together for a powerful revival in Nigeria that will burst beyond the walls of AG churches and touch even the lives of Islamic adherents.

In Japan, fewer than 1 percent of the 127 million people know Jesus. Many churches in Japan are severely under-resourced and lack the tools needed to reach this current generation. We want to be a resource and blessing to the church so that, together, we can reach a new generation of believers here. Please pray that God would continue to open doors for AP Media in Japan and pray that He would connect us with more creative Japanese believers who are passionate about reaching their nation through the power of media.

Our church's annual Young Adults Conference was a great beginning of the year for many students. It was encouraging to have Croatians and Serbians attending and ministering together with Bosnians. The youth were involved with leading worship, organizing the conference, and running it. It is very exciting to see them learning to minister among their peers. Please pray for these young adults to grow closer to Jesus and to share their faith in Him.

Please pray with me for Global Initiative, our AGWM ministry that is intentionally reaching out to the Islamic world with the gospel and is training followers of Christ around the world to share their faith with Muslims in their communities. Global Initiative missionaries are continually training and resourcing people around the world to minister to Muslims. Pray for their travels, their training sessions, and for spiritual fruit to come from the resources and materials they are producing. And join them each Friday for the Jumaa Prayer Fellowship, when more than 60,000 people from 81 nations pray together for the souls of Muslims.
