Mauritius is home to 1.2 million people that form a mosaic of race, culture and religion.This French-speaking Hindu Island located 2,000 km off East Africa in the Indian Ocean has a diverse, splintered, and militant religious population. It is ranked 2nd in the world for heroin addiction.

This will be strategic time for Mauritius. We will be be doing a National Crusade with the Assemblies of God in Mauritius. Along with the National Crusade, the emerging Mauritius Teen Challenge is coordinating school meetings and evangelistic street rallies in the worst drug areas across the island leading up to the climaxing crusade. I believe that these meetings can be a turning point, not only for lives touched in evangelism, but also for Teen Challenge and the Mauritius Assemblies of God.

As we have fasted and prayed, there is a sense this can go far beyond being just another evangelistic campaign. It has been my heart that this CRUSADE be a catalytic event to impact the entire body of believers on Mauritius across denominational lines and usher in a new season of outreach … that the Holy Spirit would send a fresh outpouring of lifestyle evangelism to energize the whole church to engage the culture of Mauritius for the gospel..

As the church in Mauritius faces  cultural religious persecution from the Hindu and Muslim majority (over 65%). We have a vision of the Body of Christ in Mauritius coming together to engage the real enemy. I see passion-driven, great-commission Christians taking His message and “making disciples.” At the end of this crusade we want to see every new believer "turned on" to the word and "plugged in" to a local expression of the body of Christ, churches growing, and thenation changed. It is our vision that the evangelized will become the evangelists and that God will shake this Island for His glory.


In follow up with Gamaliel Cerda director of Teen Challenge in Mexico City, he tells us that God has protected Mexico Teen Challenge during this recent outbreak of Swine Flu designated H1N1. Its elusive origins seem to center in Mexico. "All around us," He says, "people have died, but it has not touched our homes. You come like the angels to us with your prayers.Many thanks," Gama

Mauritius by air
Bless you keep us in your prayers .. the Mauritius trip will not be without danger.  We will be ministering in PALMA, a Center of persecution and home to the 50,000 member, Voice of Hindu movement. They recently fielded 500 violent  demonstrators and have burned down Assembly of God Churches in the past. This is the principality of the Hindu's - the nerve center- a strategic place - they hold meetings each Tuesday and they have a powerful political lobby. Main Hindu temple (left) built in honor of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami is on the Mountaintop and it is a place of tremendous spiritual bondage. Pray for safety and anointing. We will take on this principality on this turf with the Word of God and pentecostal power! With your prayers God will shake this area. This is when revival will explode in Mauritius.

1) Pray for the ministry in MAURITIUS- in May as we host the crusade and street rallies in the six major drug areas and a climaxing in the nation's capitol. (see detail above). MAURITIUS is a fertile field and I believe God is going to shake that island by HIS power and from there I see the wave rolling like a tsunami of love and grace to Seychelles and then Reunion Island. Hallelujah! CRUSADE COORDINATOR RHAVY asks prayer for:
--b. The - objective of the Rock the Block is to reach out to drug addicts in their own community.
------Pray that many addicts will attend these gatherings and there's a great move of God. They will meet and experience the love of Jesus Christ ,lives will be transformed and we will live in stronger communities.

--c. Pray for the volunteers, as they intercede, distribute flyers, place posters, post of banners, personal invitations, musicians, singers, counselors and many others.
--d. Pray that a large number of people will rise up and volunteer in the different fields.

--e. We further pray that christians do not focus on supporting only their denomination, but see the Kingdom perspective as christians from various local churches across the island join in and support this initiative.
--f. The cost of organizing such event amounts to Rs275,000 and therefore we will require donors and sponsors. A well organized donors program is being put in place to raise sufficient funds. This is a bold step of faith for Teen Challenge Mauritius. Please pray that hearts of people will be touched and they will contribute generously towards this event.
2) Pray for continued protection for Teen Challenge Mexico
3) Pray for Cathy as she holds down the fort, works with Becky on Wedding preparations, and tries to get some meetings book to pay the bills. Having you as a partner is our true blessing. I agree with the Apostle Paul when he says in Romans, ": May the God of hope bless you richly! "
4) Pray for workers for the Harvest ...Teen Challenge Centers in 86 countries need staff and we currently have invitations to start Teen Challenge in 43 nations. They are crying out for help. They need the power of God to meet a pressing social need... but we know it has a SPIRITUAL ROOT.
We offer SPIRITUAL RESOURCES to meet the need.
MATTHEW 9: 37 Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. 38 Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”

Rom 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 ( NASB )
