Praise and Prayer

Praise: A revival is occurring in northern Mozambique, where word has spread that "Jesus is in Marromeu" according to Friday Fax. "They all knew of their sin, they all wanted Jesus. Hundreds of them were baptized, even in pools full of leeches," the report continued. "Churches are springing up everywhere; in June 2001, we counted 1,200 new Christian churches." Though the people were under witchcraft and syncretism, and know religious legalism from centuries of colonialism, "catastrophic floods in early 2001 started a deep hunger for God in the refugee camps, and the gospel is spreading like wildfire -even in Islamic regions. Everyone wants Jesus, and thousands bow their hearts before the King."
