PASTOR WALTER'S FAMILY NEEDS OUR PRAYERS AGAIN
Last week I posted about Pastor Walter. I told you that his family had been robbed. The great news afterwards was that within just a couple of days, so many Christians around the world had chipped in money, that all their financial needs were over and abundantly provided for...even the cow for the church. Read his thank you note at Jumbo's blog post: http://jumbogerber.myadventures.org/?filename=thank-you-from-walter
Today I was saddened to hear that once again Pastor Walter's home was attacked. Here are the details from Jumbo in Swaziland:
"To all of you who are praying so faithfully for us, I just want to thank each one of you. I also want to call each one of you to continue to pray for Pastor Walter and his family. I just got of the phone with Lelo and he informed me that the same guys that robbed Pastor Walter a week ago has returned.
Lelo caught 3 of the five guys that robbed Walter, but the other 2 returned and tried again to get into his house. Because some of you were so gracious to give some money, we were able to secure Walter's house. So they could not get into the house, but they tried to break through the wall with a pick ax and threw stones through the windows. One of the stones hid Nomsa, but she is okay. The family is very shocked. We moved Walter and his family to one of our team houses and they will stay there for now. The past events are very worry some for us and I believe that we need to step up to the plate and start praying against what is happening.
I believe that the jealousy in this community and the attitude of "everyone should rather have nothing, than someone having something" is spiritual strongholds that can be broken through prayer and trusting the Lord to give us the answer. So please join us in spending time with the Lord and praying specifically for the victory over these strongholds in the community.
Thank you that we can share this with you and that we can know that many of you will intercede on behalf of one of our main ministry partners in Swaziland. Let's overcome this giant together. "
