"Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;" Romans 15:30
We have many directors and workers in areas of the world that are hostile to the Gospel, these men and women are at the top of our list and covet your prayers for their safety as they literally put their lives on the line for the sake of the Gospel.
Please remember our schools being run all over the world. Pray for these students that Christ would be made real in each heart, and the Spirit of Life would flow like a mighty river affecting everything it touches.
Special Prayer Requests from our Directors
I will be running the School of Christ in Cameroon in early July. The last time the school was run there was in 2004, I am expecting a stirring of hearts and lives. Please also keep in prayer the following schools running this month (July 2011) in Africa. Each school has numerous pastors that can change the moral fabric of society and bring spiritual revival to hearts and lives of many people. Schools will be run in Cameroon, Tanzania, Benin, Zambia, Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia. In Christ, Stephen Cartwright (7-11)

Thank you, Keith Malcomson (5-11)
Here in Viamao, Brazil, there is a special brother that not only is a graduate of the School of Christ, but also gives much of his vacation time from work to assist in many of the Schools we hold here in this country. We were advised just a couple of weeks ago that he was suffering with his kidneys shutting down, only functioning 13%. We were able to visit him this week. He has also had to deal with his intestines shutting down as well. They are now functioning again, but something is severely wrong in his body, and the doctors have not been able to tell him what is really going on. As Paul said, "…we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28) Even though Bro. Marcos and his family are passing through this storm, they are applying everything that they have learned through the School of Christ and the testimonies of Bro. Clendennen and are asking God what He wants to teach them through this time. They know that they are not going through this situation alone. I personally am asking those who read this to join with me in prayer for a complete healing in our brother's body, and that in the end God will receive all the glory for all things He accomplishes through this. God Bless, Brian Larsen (5-11)
An Urgent Call For Prayer. Scattered across all forms of news media are the ongoing events in the nation of Egypt. This not only concerns the world in which we live, but it greatly concerns the spiritual realm. The School of Christ has many students in Egypt and sustains an ongoing school there. What we are witnessing is the birth pangs of the end time events that pastor Clendennen spoke so often to us about. We ask that you would remember Egypt in your prayers, especially the believers. We have nearly two hundred former students there and the direction of the country will have a great impact upon them. We are pleading the blood of Jesus over them as lawlessness runs the streets. The Christians in Egypt have a limited freedom as it is and stand to face great consequences in governmental change. We know that all is in the Lord's hands and He is our Shield and Protector. Middle East Director (4-11)
Please pray for the schools starting this January in Colombo, Sri Lanka and in Mumbai, India. God is doing a mighty work in this part of the world but not without a fight from the Adversary. Also, I will be traveling extensively throughout Asia and covet your prayers for my safety. Thank you and God bless! Josh Hamby (1-11)
I am writing to keep people updated on the schools running in Africa, the purpose is so that people can pray for the directors and the schools they are running. All of our directors are married men and have to leave their families for extended periods of time for the sake of the gospel of Christ, sometimes the way they travel, via bus or car, can put them in inhospitable areas where there is the threat of robbers and injury. One of our directors a while back was travelling by bus and was attacked by a gang of robbers who held up the whole bus at gun point. Two people were killed trying to run from the situation. This is only to highlight the situation and the need to pray for these men who travel to minister the gospel of Christ. Stephen Cartwright (12-10)
Dear brother's in Christ,
Immediate need for prayer! We started a full time school in Ranchi, the capital of Jarkhand, India. Forty-seven students were there. But the unexpected heavy change of climate affected us. Many of our students have already fell ill. Some are forced to go home. It has never happened like this before. Please be in prayer that our Lord will touch us from the heat of the day and chill of the night. Even our director there is sick. Please be praying for us. In HIS mercy, Nelson Thomas (11-10)
