Narcis and his family have moved to a very hostile environment to extend the Kingdom of God in that place. Keeping specific names of cities censored for their safety, here is an update from them:
As we move into the Spring the weather steadily increases in Iraq. We’ve already hit quite a few 90+ degree days this month and it will only increase from here on in. The temperature is also rising in a couple of other ways.
There have been widespread protests in Iraq over the last 4 months or so between differing sects and political parties. This has unfortunately caused violence in the forms of shootings, roadside and suicide bombings. At least hundreds have been killed! This tension has recently taken a turn for the worse when …, a city just an hour south of us became one of the focal points of the uprising. Prompted by certain acts of violence, government officials fired on protesters a couple of days ago, killing dozens and wounding hundreds.
What seemed to be happening only in the distant southern part of Iraq now seems to be getting closer to the north. This is raising fears in many, that with similar sectarian uprisings in Syria and previously other places, these events might invite radical parties to join and devolve into a revolution. However, as these temperatures rise, one thing is certain. Our God is an All Consuming Fire and Jesus the Life Giving Spirit still holds the office of Baptizer in the Holy Ghost and Fire!
We believe this region is in the cross-hairs of God’s end-time purposes of filling all things with His Son, and we couldn’t be more excited about it!
What’s Been Happening
F… and I just arrived back home a few days ago from a trip to Baghdad. It was wonderful being with brother A W, he and his church are a real source of divine life, presence and relief to Baghdad and Iraq. We were also able to minister in one of the local churches and meet with several of the Pastors from Baghdad to discuss what we might do together towards building the Church and advancing the Kingdom there. After hearing about the planned House of Prayer and Mesopotamian School of Ministry, they asked us if we would be willing to do something similar with them in Baghdad.
We are praying about how we can partner with them in facilitating a network of prayer for Revival along with training that we can do via modular courses and in various other ways. On the home-front, we are still working to get registered in the North and finding a location that would suit our needs. At this point we still need a financial push to be able to do so. Please let us know, if you or someone you know would be potentially interested in sponsoring this project for Jesus’ Glory!
One of the things we feel in our spirits as a team, is that God is going to draw more and more attention to the Middle East in these coming days and years. The same principalities that opposed Daniel in this region are still around, working their best to deceive the nations and sweep literally millions into a Christ-less eternity. One of the ways we would love your involvement is in the place of prayer. We host different “prayer sets” for the region and would more than welcome anyone (preferably a few at a time), that would want to stream in with us and join in agreement for God’s manifest Glory in Iraq and beyond.
If you think of us, please pray for God’s tangible abiding presence, grace, wisdom and favor, signs and wonders, and souls souls! If you are interested in learning more about that please email me back and we can contact you back and see how we can connect. Thank you all precious saints of God for loving Jesus and doing His will. We are so grateful for all of your friendships, prayers and support and pray that God would deeply mark you all with His precious Life, Death, Burial and Resurrection Glory!
