Anna Polentas Prayer Request
Good morning, I have developed backache and am going to see a Dr this morning please keep me in your prayers thank you!
Prayer for Legislative Agenda
South African firearm owners are currently subjected to a highly arbitrary, irrational, unconstitutional and expensive law called the Firearms Control Act. This law since its implementation has failed catastrophically a number of times, yet lawmakers continue to maintain its existence, mostly at the urging by an NGO that often lies, manipulates and deceives, to push its gun control agenda. To compound this, the police force has many malicious individuals within its ranks, going to extraordinary lengths to harass and prejudice firearm owners both inside and out of court (with judges almost always literally throwing a book at prosecutors and arresting officers).
I would like to ask for prayer for the leaders within the firearms community, particularly Gun Owners South Africa, and for myself as someone very active within GOSA, for wisdom when engaging government. I would like to ask for prayer to open the eyes and ears of the legislative members to see through this NGO I make reference to, and prayer for the removal of obstacles within the police management which frequently show malicious intent, illegal use of power without consequence, attempt to obstruct and intentionally ignore firearms groups, and general incompetence.
In February, there is a Constitutional Court case to be heard after a High Court ruled against the police and declared sections of the law unconstitutional earlier this year. I would like to ask for prayer for the legal counsel of the various firearm organisations to make a formidable argument that opens the door to declaring the entire law unconstitutional, and forcing the rewrite of the law.
Lastly I would like to ask for prayer for the continued growth and professional reach of GOSA. God has blessed GOSA richly this year with paid membership growth as the organisation formalises and consolidates after 13 long years of slowly cobbling itself together. With almost 3 million non-affiliated firearm owners, we need the resources to reach them to truly become a formidable force that government has ignored/trampled on for so long, and pray that our attempts to partner with large organisations for financial support bear much fruit.
God bless you all and thanks
we continue to ask for prayers of safety for Adam and Dean Beckley, our sons, as they continue to travel in snowy conditions each day from Victor, Idaho to Jackson, Wyoming.Thank you so much
Please pray for our son Nicholas Beckley as he searches and applies for jobs in Winchester/Hedgesville, Virginia.He has left his college town of Morgantown and would like to find a secure job with benefits and the ability to pay down his school loans.Nick informed us that he has a final interview with Home Depot next week...mostly we would like to see Nick placed where God wants him to be, where he can grow closer to our Lord, where he can do good works and see the desires of his heart fulfilled. Thanking you all in advance!

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!

Hi Andreas I have some amazing news I have been hired at a predatory Bird Rescue and rehabilitation center (eagle encounters ) and ill be working under an amazing woman who is also in the faith. 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.
