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

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 thank God for answered prayer on behalf of our brother Andrew Columbia. The Lord has opened a major door of utterance for him in New York. He will be taking over as senior Pastor of Mount Carmel Baptist Church. He is in the process of moving up to New York this week.
