But this church is on rent and as there were many people attending we did it on the open air under sun shine and later a huge rain came and people were serious wet and the Me but all went well. After the service, there was a Football match for peace and reconciliation. The Match was in between Pygmies and the Bantu. Pygmies are marginalised people in society.

vVellore, Indiaand St Mary’s Old Basing & Lychpit:

Emma Koshi writes:We at Seb's Projects, Vellore, would love to participate and be a part of this time of prayer. I was going through the amazing resources and I am sure it would kindle a spiritual journey in everyone who participates in it. As in the words of your Archbishop.".Prayer is the place where change begins" I often think how our Lord has drawn people together from different parts of the world breaking down barriers and making us one family in Him.I just had a meeting with Seb's Staff and we are on holiday during that week but we have decided to come together on Wednesday the 31st of May. We will invite all our staff, teachers and the women who are part of the GoodBye to paper project and some of our older students who are into higher education to spend a day at our office and have a time of prayer and meditation using some of your resources. Will also invite MBKG family to participate as well.I will encourage my family and friends to be part of the 9 day Novena using the booklet you have sent..That the Holy Spirit would speak and strengthen and recharge our lives.I will also share your mail and the links to our pastor in St. John's Church.

St Apolo’s, Katakala:
ev’d Rocky the Vicar of St. Apolo Kivebulaya Katakala Uganda writes:Members of my Church St. Apolo Kivebulaya Katakala ardently love to participate and be part of this time of prayer. We have encountered moral decadence as a result of Spiritual immaturity . I am very optimistic that the presence and will of God are going to be experienced in everyone's life who participates.A prayer is always a strong weapon which rehabilitates, transforms and restores hope in a situation where people seem to have lost hope. A prayer brings us to a direct connection with God regardless of our education background or the color of our skin. It further breaks the barriers and brings us into a unity of diversity but of the same savior. We shall come together as a family on o1/06/2017 at 17:00 hrs at St. Apolo Church (3pm UK time) and have time of prayer and meditation . During this time l shall encourage and call upon members to be part of the 9 day Novena, l am very positive that the Holy Spirit will shower and recharge our lives with blessings and be in position to discern and continue to live exemplary life as ambassador of Jesus Christ our personal Lord and savior in this contemporary world.Peace and Love. Rev’d Rocky.
