For Wednesday, May 3
rd , 2017

Today we are glad to tell you that you can genuinely make history.
Today we are excited to tell you that you can change the future for many.
You are part of the solution to change lives forever.
Consider yourself a stratetic weapon that God will use to defeat the work of the evil one.

How ???

By praying and praising God. You can affect an entire people – the Francophone people throughout the world – if you will but pray.

Thank You!

May God richly bless you as you pray and praise!


For BLF Éditions

- Praise God with us! Mid-April, BLF had another opportunity to host the bookstore at a conference. The D6 family conference was held in Lille on Friday and Saturday to encourage families in the church to live out Deuteronomy 6: "These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe...so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands... (Deut. 6:1-2, NIV)

- Praise Him for a successful weekend of connections and sales.
- Praise Him for the opportunity Philip (Editorial Director) and his wife had to speak on one of his favorite subjects: the parallel between redemption and adoption.
- Please pray for these French-speaking families as they return home to apply what they learned. Pray especially for their children that they learn to love the God.

For BLF USA ...

- Pray for a peaceful presidential election in France on May 7th. Pray for the leadership of France.

- Please pray for Nathan and Annie Phillips as they serve at BLF Éditions in France. Pray also for God's solution for someone to watch their son Ben (8 months old) during the hours Annie works at the warehouse. Their current babysitter was wonderful but had to return to work.

- God’s ways are higher than our ways and we trust Him to accomplish His purposes through the CRAF missions consultation held in Côte d’Ivoire (April 18-22), focused on the unreached peoples of Francophone Africa. Although the BLF books were tied up in customs and could not be distributed during the consultation, we are working with local leaders to ensure they get to as many CRAF participants as possible and to other leaders/institutions as well. Thank God for some encouraging conversations concerning our Sunday school materials for French-speaking Africa. More on that in the weeks to come. Please also continue to pray as we are still in need of funds to print more Sunday school materials.

- We continue to ask for prayer for the leaders of the Francophone world and the countries they lead. This week, our focus is Djibouti, located on the horn of Africa. Pray for President Ismail Omar Guelleh and Prime Minister Abdoulkader Kamil Mohamed.

Strategically located but lacking in natural resources, Djibouti is dependent on French aid and military bases. Please pray for a spiritual breakthrough for this country that faces desperate poverty, spiritual oppression and ethnic tensions. Evangelical fellowships made up of immigrant groups are burdened to reach the Somali and Afar peoples. The few Somali and Afar believers face persecution.
