Weekly Prayer Emails

Every Thursday we send out a prayer email with one prayer request that we ask people to lift up. These are usually time sensitive and is a more specific way you can be praying. If you would like to be part of this important team, then please sign up below.

March 2018

East Africa

Thank you for praying for our time in Kenya in February. In Kenya we launched The Garden Project with a large network called Lifeway Mission whose ministry spans ten countries throughout East Africa. We met with their country leaders and presented our first module, “Leadership for a Healthy Church.” This trip will begin our four-year investment that will engage thousands of leaders.

Please pray for the 45 leaders that participated, that they will engage with the leadership principles that they interacted with them during the week. Please pray that it will not just be head knowledge, but something that can truly touch their hearts and their leadership. Pray for us as we cultivate the relationships that we began last month.


Vision Events

Last month we began a series of Freedom to Lead Vision Events to help generate an awareness of what’s God is doing with Freedom to Lead around the world. Please continue to pray as people come to these events that they will be open to how God is leading them as they consider playing a role in this global ministry.


Please pray as we anticipate our next trip to India in early April. A lot of preparation still needs to take place before going. While in India we will be helping with the Oral University of Leadership (see below), specifically helping with a module on Adult Learning and Orality. This university has been a dream for quite some time and we are excited to see national leadership take this and make it their own.

West Africa

Please pray for our partnerships in West Africa and the coordinating of schedules for the late spring and fall of 2018. There are a lot of moving parts because we are working with several regions in Francophone West Africa.

Ongoing Prayer Requests

Oral University of Leadership

Please pray for our colleagues in South Asia (India and Nepal) as they launch an “Oral University of South Asia” (OUSA) in July 2017. This accredited degree program will be the first of its kind to offer the entire curriculum using storycentric methods. The Garden Project – FTL’s leadership development program – will serve as the core content. One key leader of this initiative described the goal for their prospective program participants when he wrote, “The participants will be equipped with both knowledge and experience to lead effectively. They will work in mentoring relationships alongside church planters, pastors, missionaries, and leaders of storycentric communities. They will gain unique understanding into sharing their faith, making disciples, planting churches, and developing other leaders.”


Other Initiatives for 2018

Please pray for the FTL team as we discuss and plan for the growing number of requests for FTL’s ministry. We need discernment and faith to expand the ministry’s infrastructure so that FTL can provide The Garden Project to thousands of under-resourced storycentric communicators.


Funding and Support Raising

FTL Staff are required to raise their own personal financial support, which includes salary and ministry expenses. Please pray for each member of our team as we continue to make relationships with potential people who want to financially partner with us in this ministry. We also are working hard to raise the funds needed to carry out our ministry operations as well as for our projects throughout Asia and Africa. Please pray for favor with individuals, major donors, and foundations.
