Assemblies of God missionaries, Skyping in from around the world, will share their testimonies and urgent prayer needs during a focused time of seeking the Lord through the global online World Prayer Meeting coming in May. Recorded live by Cornerstone Church in Bowie, Maryland, with host pastor Mark Lehman, this annual hour-long event begins at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 28 - Ascension Day.

"As we join together in prayer, we anticipate answers to prayer and breakthroughs among unreached peoples who have yet to hear the hope of the gospel," says AGWM Communications Director Randy Hurst. "In 2013, more than 30 percent of AGWM personnel were involved in ministry to unreached people groups. That number continues to grow."

The World Prayer Meeting's first webcast begins at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and available online immediately thereafter.

"Prayer for divine intervention and empowerment in our mission is not an option: It is an absolute necessity," says Greg Mundis, AGWM executive director. "We will only accomplish God's purposes and the specific individual tasks He has for us as a mission if we can marshal a spiritual army of intercessors to pray that God will open doors among the unreached and protect and sustain our missionaries." 

"Individuals are encouraged to participate in this inspiring event," Hurst says, "but if your church has the compatible technical capabilities, please consider projecting the broadcast in the sanctuary and use the prayer meeting in your regular Wednesday evening service."

Jeff Hartensveld, AGWM mobilization director who will be leading the prayer meeting says, "Imagine, if we pray with an urgency to match the times and days we are living in, what the Lord will do!"

To help direct prayers during and following the event, AGWM has created six prayer cards, one from each of the six AGWM geographic regions.

"Each card includes a brief message from the regional director concerning the prayer focus," Hurst explains. "However, if you plan to use these cards in conjunction with the World Prayer Meeting, they must be ordered by May 16." To acquire cards, call (800)-988-6568.

The site of the World Prayer Meeting broadcast is currently being developed, but once the site is ready, the link will be posted on the AGWM home page and in an upcoming AG News release.

Women's Ministries stamp collecting aids libraries

Thu, 04 Dec 2003 - 12:29 PM CST

For more than four decades, Women's Ministries groups around the country have been collecting used postage stamps, donating more than $60,000 from their resale to missions. This ongoing project, called The Library Fund, serves a twofold purpose: providing funds for A/G Bible schools and a nontraditional ministry opportunity for the many retired missionaries and shut-ins who help prepare stamps for sale. The effort began in 1962.

Each year the national Women's Ministries Department receives more than a thousand packages of stamps in varying shapes and sizes. "The Library Fund is a project that appeals to many Women's Ministries groups because it does not require a large amount of finances or fund raising," says Karlene Gannon, office and finance/projects coordinator for the national Women's Ministries Department. "The whole church can be involved in this recycling project."

Women's Ministries groups coordinate the collection, preparation and shipment of the canceled postage stamps to the national Women's Ministries Department for marketing. Some church groups also ask local utility companies and businesses to save envelopes. Postage stamps that are placed lower on the envelope are easier to sell, and large commemorative stamps are more valuable. The 2002 grants totaled $1,700 and benefited nine Bible schools from each of the six Assemblies of God World Missions regions.

"The Women's Ministries and all those who have taken time to collect the used stamps have made it possible for us to purchase much-needed books for our library here at Joy Bible Institute," says Phil Rojak, U.S. A/G missionary in Vanuatu. "Like most Bible schools, our school's funds are at a premium, and often there are not enough funds left over to adequately stock our library. The Library Fund has helped us to better equip our students."
