Who is on the Lord’s side? Who will serve the King?
Who will be His helpers, other lives to bring?

In 1877, Frances Havergal penned this song which stirred the hearts of many Christians to become engaged to actively live for and share the gospel. The song depicts the call to action to go and actively share the Great News of what Jesus did for every person on this planet - rectifying our sinful state before the Father - that we might reside with Him forever – If each would but trust in Him as our Savior and Lord. A message for all of time - for all man. But who will communicate this? He calls and chooses you!

A large part of this world speaks French. Would you please pray that His Word would go forth to reach the Francophone world for Christ? Thank you.

May God richly bless you as you pray and praise!

For BLF Canada ...

- This week our focus is on Mali. Please pray that President Ibrahim Boubacar Keďta, and Prime Minister Modibo Keďta would have divine wisdom to know how to provide health, education and employment to their people. Since 2013, elections and a new government have brought a peace process to Mali. Still, much division and instability between the north and south remains following the attempted military coup in the south in 2012. Mali has overcome huge challenges of high child mortality and malnutrition due to desertification of its land. 20% of children do not survive beyond age five and of those, 1 in 3 will be malnourished.

Although Mali is spiritually open and the church is taking root slowly, its peoples remain mostly unreached (2/3 of Malians are unevangelized). In a population of 13.3 million, 352,000 consider themselves Christians (including 93,600 evangelicals). Many who make decisions for Christ eventually return to their former religion. Praise God that around 700 evangelical congregations exist. However, most congregations today do not reach out or evangelize. Pray for an awakening and a movement of the Holy Spirit to capture hearts anew leading to discipleship and evangelism.
