Dear Alpha and Omega Family,
I'm sure you have witnessed the horrific images of the catastrophic fires nearby Athens, Greece. Many precious lives have been lost, countless injured and a vast amount of property destroyed.
As you are aware, our ministry has a strong connection to Greece and the Greek people. In times past, I used to travel to Greece three to four times a year, preaching and teaching the Gospel. The nation of Greece is very dear to my heart.
I, therefore, request that you join with me in prayer for God's comfort for the families who have lost loved ones, as well as for speedy recovery for the injured and shelter for those who have been left homeless.
We also pray for the firefighting efforts, that the firefighters receive the assistance they require to extinguish the fires. As well as to those now rendered homeless through this tragedy, that they will be cared for and accommodated.
Lastly, we pray for an outpouring of God’s Spirit upon the nation of Greece according to the word in Acts 2:17-18:
Acts 2:17-18 (NKJV)
‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
And on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days;
And they shall prophesy.
We thank you for joining us in prayer in this urgent matter.
Praise and Request
As I mentioned in prayer on the webinar, I make record of it here. I thank God for his incredible work in brining and mobilising South African gun owners to fund our latest legal crusade.
We have raised R400 000 in just over a week through donations, but need R600 000 more. That said, in the past we have always struggled to make R120 000. I ask and pray that this full amount is realised and that GOSA's name will extend further and further, bringing with it influence and awareness.
I thank God for all that he has done and continues to do.
Favor for Sis Dina Baquirin
Please pray with us for God's favor for our dear sister Dina Baquirin ,a teacher and a member of our congregation. Our mayor wanted to transfer her to a very far school to teach and this because he was not happy with our sister. PLEASE PRAY THAT SHE WILL NOT BE TRANSFERED ANYWHERE. THANK YOU THANK YOU
Blessings for Work
May are you please pray for me for God blessing in myself and good opportunities, I lost my job last month I'm busy send cv and looking for the new job. I need God's favor, Grace and blessings upon my live to have a Job. For me to be able to pay the rent for the church and tithe.
Amen in Jesus name.
Praise and Request
The Constitutional Court case was lost and a bitter blow, but as much as it was in fact unwinnable in retrospect, the aftermath has been in the favour of GOSA and Firearm rights.
I thank God for the newfound desire for the various groups to start talking to each other again, and pray for growing unity.
I thank God for the droves of New members that joined GOSA, and for the fraction of them that joined as paid members; every cent counts. I pray that this continues in intensity.
I thank God for GOSA's ability to hold a productive and good meeting with the police legal team, and trust in God to provide us with the funds to pay off the new legal bill GOSA has incurred, plus the old bill of the past ConCourt battle that is yet to be settled.
Most of all I thank God for GOSA's continued growth in influence and capacity, and long may it continue, and I thank all for their continued prayers of support.

We had a good evening of discussion after Session 1 on Bait of Satan. A good mix of young adults and us older folk, with great participation by all, along with some hearty laughter.

Our dearly beloved Father. In Jesus name and through the power of your Holy Spirit, we give thanks and praise to You for strengthening us in the inner man, to take us through the last year. It's been a difficult year, Lord. We thank you for sustaining, strengthening and protecting us, and for bringing financial breakthrough for us. We look forward to continued growth, in You, Father, knowing that You are our provider and protector. We thank you for Pastor Andreas and his team, Lord.We pray a blessing over Alpha and Omega, for growth in every area of the ministry. In Jesus precious name. Amen.

Some formal feedback on the long winded request from a few weeks ago.
One of the few obstacles in our way that we as GOSA needed removed was malicious forces in the police. I am pleased to say that Major General Bothma, the director of the Firearms Registry, was forced to resign. There are more obstacles in SAPS, but praise be to God for this! We don't know who will replace Bothma yet. A Brigadier General was also slapped with a personal costs order by a court for his arbitrary conduct at the Registry.
The GOSA legal team has also formed a pretty solid case it seems.
We still need prayer for financial support, further moving of obstacles, and for admission to the Court.
Praise be to God for what he has done and is doing!

Thanks to you and everyone here who prayed for me, my prayers have been answered and I am able to do something I love. I have also made a decision about the job opportunity in Mpumalanga I will not take it until I have formed a solid foundation in the spirit (Im just a baby after all) and with The love and guidance from the Wright family I had come to this decision. I can honestly say if it wasn't for all of you I know this would never have happened thank you for your guidance an prayers.
