Tafadhali kuomba kwa ajili yetu – These are the words that appear in Swahili at the top of a credit card style two-sided full colour card that Andrew brought with him to Kindu. His plan was to hand the cards out to every pastor he spoke to as a way of encouraging them to pray for his three churches in County Tyrone.

Andrew had produced 250 of these cards the front of which had these words (which mean ‘Please pray for us’). Each card also had a photo of Brackaville, Donaghendry and Ballyclog Churches, a photo of Andrew with the Mothers’ Union ladies and of some of the children. On the reverse there was a quotation from Philippians 4 (v4-7) in both English and Swahili.

Each time Andrew handed out a card he did it in a meaningful and prayerful way by explaining what he was asking the people to do and assuring each one that he and his three churches would be praying regularly for each of them. He handed these out everywhere he went so there are now over 200 people in Kindu, Kasongo and many other villages as well as in Bukavu and Goma praying for Andrew and his churches.

I am truly humbled by this style of prayer. Thanks Mr. Gough. They too need our prayers as a way of asking God to meet their needs. Even though I didn't get that credit card,I am convinced beyond doubt to remember them in prayers. God bless you.
