Tearing Down Strongholds

p1030452Pray for us as we contend with the spirits of greed, drunken-ness, jealousy, and all forms of selfishness. We are trying to work on behalf of the orphans and vulnerable children in Maloni Village who cannot afford to go to school. The village leaders are discussing our interest in starting some kind of simple business to provide a continual fund for these least of all.

It can work. I just visited Makuni Village where some friends started a garden 2 years ago with the same idea in mind. It is still going and helping tremendously. The school has 1100 kids and 450 of them are orphans!

I have found one wonderful couple in that village who would not steal from such a fund – but most of the leaders we know are corrupt and untrustworthy. This has so far thwarted every effort to help.

I am praying that God will contend for his children here – tear down the strongholds of the enemy and establish righteousness in this village.

Will you pray with me?

And another thought on the well for Justin issue from last blog – rather than paying $10,000 to drill a well, maybe someone can just buy a hand held well driller for about $1000, bring it on the plane, and drill the well themself! That would be a lot cheaper and give someone such a blessing. Then it could be used over and over again. Think about it…
