On IFES World Student Day

Today is the IFES world student prayer day (although since it’s actually 48 hours long I’m curious about their usage of the word ‘day’)

International Fellowship of Evangelical Students

Check out the funky interactive website thingy (esp. if you can understand and appreciate the French conversation tht appears to be ongoing at the mo) and/or have a glance at the prayer requests for the EPSA region below.

EPSA (English & Portuguese-Speaking Africa) consists of the following countries:

Angola, Botswana, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea Bissau, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia & Zimbabwe.

Some of the key issues in many of these countries include the HIV/AIDS pandemic, poverty and political instability. So please do be praying for the students involved in the movements across our region as they seek to speak the truth of the gospel into all of these difficult situations.

Also, there are plans taking shape currently to implement a gospel project across the region. The movements have access to thousands of copies of John’s Gospel (known as Africa Life) to distribute to students. Please pray for the finances needed to allow this project to work, for the enthusiasm of IFES students to share these gospels with their friends, and for God’s word to impact and change the region.

For more info on the EPSA region (or other IFES regions around the world) go to the IFES website and click on PRAY.

In summary: praying.

  1. Hello there! Thanks so much for being part of the IFES World Student Day – we trust you were as encouraged by it as we were.

    The 48 hours in ONE DAY covers ONE DAY (6 November 2009) as it starts in Tonga, and ends 48 hours later in Samoa, the other side of the international date line. A great opportunity to maximise the prayers in celebration of IFES World Student Day.

    We would love to hear from you with any ideas for how we might continue to grow and improve this event for next year: Friday 5 November 2010.

    Be blessed!
