2013 North Africa: Redefining Dependence

Week 2 

From day one, we witnessed a different kind of dependence on the Lord...

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; 
for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

"The believers here pray before any decision is made, 

before we start anything, before we go to work. 

They prayed for a scheduling meeting for our team. 

They prayed for the weather one day for their daughter to take a test. 

They prayed over material we brought, just in receiving it!!

It's completely different from the way Americans view prayer here…. 

Look at our American lifestyle: We wake up every morning and get in our cars, drive to work, take care of the kids, etc. ---We don't need any help with that..
