Rene Terra Nova Hosting Thousands of Apostles with More to Come
In 2011, Apostle John Kelly traveled to Porto Seguro, Brazil to assist Apostle Rene Terra Nova in forming the Brazilian Coalition of Apostles. Terra Nova, who oversees about 25.000 churches in Brazil, called his network of leaders together to hear about ICA National Coalition. Apostle Kelly's visit was followed a few months later by Mark Pfeifer who joined Apostle Terra Nova in hosting a meeting with well over 1,500 apostles and 9,000 pastors from all 26 states in Brazil. More strategies unfolded regarding the direction and future of the coalition. In 2013, an apostolic gathering is being planned by Apostle Terra Nova in Sao Paulo where he will host even more of the nation's leading apostles in order grow and strengthen the Brazilian Coalition of Apostles. Both John Kelly and Mark Pfeifer plan to attend this meeting and assist Terra Nova and the other apostles to create strategy for the work of God in their nation.
Sydney Stair and Miguel Perez Work Together in creating a model of cooperation in Puerto Rico for Others to Follow
Ambassadorial Apostle Miguel A. Pérez says he has been working alongside Puerto Rican Convening Apostle Sydney Stair, building a strong relationship that will help lead the Puerto Rican Coalition of Apostles. Stair comments on their relationship, "Apostle Miguel Perez has been doing great keeping in touch. We communicate on a weekly basis and I keep him informed of advancements we are making reaching out to key apostles on the island. The religious leaders on the island know that we are here and what we are teaching and they are inviting us to their massive gatherings. This was not so as recent as five years ago." Apostle Kelly has made two trips to the island, conducting the initial summit in February in the city of San Juan where 13 apostles attended. Reaching an agreement to establish the Puerto Rican Coalition of Apostles under the convening leadership of Apostle Sidney Stair, the next apostolic gathering with Apostle Kelly was held in April where even more apostles joined the ranks, determined to move forward with the coalition. Stair and Perez are quickly establishing a model of unity for other nations to follow.
Australian Coalition of Apostles and Prophets Expanding to Other Nations
Representing over 2,000 congregations all over Australia and some 120 participating apostolic leaders, the Australian Coalition of Apostles and Prophets (ACAP) hosted some 50 Apostolic Leaders in their 2012 national gathering with Apostle Kelly. Australia is one of the leading coalitions that, along with Canada, have pioneered apostolic strategies allowing national coalitions to be formed. After seeds for the coalition were planted by Peter Wagner, Mark Pfeifer made several trips to Australia to help formalize it. Convening Apostle for Australia, John Macknamara, soon assumed responsibility to lead the coalition in 2010. Since then, apostles and prophets from across the nation have been working together to see their nation transformed. Here is the latest report from Macknamara:
"Chuck Pierce's Prophecy for Australia continues to be fulfilled TO THE LETTER! Our Intercessors Group have done intense spiritual warfare and made continuous declaration of Chucks' word over our nation. The greatest fires and the greatest floods in Australia's history took place just as the word declared. It also stated that "Australia will be a COVENANT KEEPING NATION......" referring to Marriage Law. Just last week the National House of Representatives voted down the Marriage Equality Bill (Gay Marriage) overwhelmingly 98 votes to 42! The bill which was presented in the Senate was also overwhelmingly defeated! In the same week the State of Tasmania tried to put a Bill through their Senate (against Federal Marriage Law) and it was voted down by the majority. 3 Gay Marriage Bills in one week ALL VOTED DOWN. THIS IS A GREAT VICTORY!! The first 3 predictions have come to pass in order and to the letter! The next and final prediction of Chucks' word is that Australia will experience A GLORY INVASION OF THE NATION!! I believe it has already begun. "I have been Interstate in Adelaide, Perth and Sydney in the past three weeks and unusual miracles are breaking out in each place. In Adelaide a lady came forward who was due in hospital the next week for Open Heart Surgery on her Valves and arteries' prayer for a creative miracle and a NEW HEART. We had a phone call from her the next week during Margaret Courts Victory Life International Conference. The doctors had done final tests on her and were simply amazed and dumbfounded. All the previous damages to her heart were completely gone and her heart was absolutely perfect! No operation needed - an outstanding creative miracle! These are becoming more common-place." Maybe the glory invasion in Australia has already begun! We look forward to hearing more glorious reports from the land down under.
Australian Delegation Visits the Philippines with Remarkable Results
Australian Convening Apostle John Macknamara recently reported on the activities of an apostolic team from the Australian Coalition of Apostles and Prophets (ACAP) that recently ministered in the Philippines. Macknamara write the following:
"It is my great pleasure to report on an exceptional Apostolic Missions by ACAP member David Croker from Yass, New South Wales. An apostolic team along with a number of others from Australian paid a two-week visit as they have been doing each year for several decades now. However, this particular Pastors' Conference & Crusade was one with an incredible difference! "Their mission to Dipolog City was championed by the Mayor, Deputy Mayor & Councilors of the City who are all Christians. David reports that the city is by far the cleanest he has ever seen it in 30 years of ministry there! The Mayor, Deputy & Council Members have drafted a very clear 'BLUEPRINT FOR CHURCH & CITY TRANSFORMATION (6 pages long and too detailed to include here!)' along with a City 'COVENANT STATEMENT' which appears on the wall of every home in Dipolog & reads as follows: 'We, the Multi-Sectoral leaders of Dipolog City, together with our respective constituencies, in one accord, do hereby bind ourselves to accept and fulfill God's call and destiny for Dipolog City and the Dipolognons, to be His vessels, light-bearers, releasers of Life and conduits of His Glory in our families, communities, the Province of Zamboanga del Norte, the Philippines and beyond. That, being grounded on our core value of being God-centered, we commit to be zealous and faithful in pursuing personal intimacy with God, Our Creator. That we shall actively & vigorously work for the realization of the Development Roadmap of Dipolog; That to attain our VISION to become a peaceful, progressive, self-reliant super-city, we acknowledge the wisdom of seeking God always in humility, and living according to His Will; SOAR HIGHER DIPOLOG! Forged this 3rd day of December, 2011 at the Dipolog Boulevard, Dipolog City, Philippines.' "Is it any wonder at all that the Team saw 3,420 first-time commitments to Christ in just 11 days! Further to the above, the Deputy Mayor Roberto N. Pinsoy, once discovering that David Croker had connections to the Australian Coalition of Apostles, expressed a very deep interest in connecting with us. I include a few extracts from his email to me personally: 'Dear Ps. John, I have heard about the existence of the Coalition of Apostles & Prophets of which you are the Leader through Pastor David Croker. He is indeed instrumental that our cries and prayers for an apostolic and prophetic connectivity has
been answered. It is with deep humility therefore that I, on behalf of the Leaders of Dipolog City seeking the true transformation of the church and the city, seek for your counsel and assistance as to how and where we could begin our quest for the fulfillment of God's call for our people, city and nation, understanding fully well that we need the foundation of modern day apostles and prophets to succeed. May this cry of our hearts merit your kindness and understanding. To God be the Glory! Blessings, Robert Pinsoy Deputy Mayor-Dipolog City' "Needless to say I have invited Roberto to the ICA International Conference in Dallas and also to our next Australian Coalition Meeting! Could you all please cover David Croker and Myself in Prayer for this wonderful Kingdom Opportunity!" It is our sincere hope that all of the members of the international body will hold these coalitions up in prayer and cover their activities with earnest intercession.
PAPUA NEW GUINEA
From Australia, Contacts in Papua New Guinea Established
After attending the ACAP national gathering in Canberra this past year, Apostle Phil Spence who has significant influence in Papua New Guinea, wrote ICA and said, "It was great to be with you at the ACAP annual gathering in Canberra, Australia, last week. I was re-energized, refocussed and uplifted by what you shared." Part of that refocusing was a vision for Papua New Guinea (PNG). Spence explains, "My parents went to PNG as missionaries with the Assemblies of God in 1956 and spent two decades there. I was 10 months old when they first arrived there. My Dad planted dozens of churches and my Mum ran schools and was involved in proof reading the Pidgin New Testament. I have inherited great influence in the nation of PNG from my parents who are greatly respected for the work they did there." Since then Phil has been in the process of planning a series of conferences in the provincial capitals for the next two years. The purpose of these conferences is to link together leaders and ministries who are kingdom minded and to develop a coalition
across the country. We look forward to more updates from Apostle Phil over the next few months.
The First Transition and Succession in ICA National Coalitions
Apostle Mel Mullen and the Canadian Coalition of Apostles continue to break new ground in their coalition. This past year, the convening responsibilities for the coalition were transferred from founder Mel Mullen to Apostle George Johnson. This marks the first time that such a transition has been made in the ranks of coalition leaders. Apostle Mel Mullen was the first to conceive the idea of a national coalition. Along with Apostle Kelly, he traversed the country hosting gatherings of apostles in key cities. After a couple years of vision casting with hard work, the Canadian Coalition of Apostles was born. Along with Australia, the Canadian apostles represent the early adaptors and pioneers of ICA National Coalitions. The Canadian Coalition of Apostles has continued unabated throughout the transition and continues connecting apostles across Canada.
Former Professional Baseball Player Connecting to Costa Rica
Former professional baseball player and ICA newcomer Ramon Gimenez is bringing to ICA some strong and established relationships that have been built in Central America. One such relationship is with Yamil Jimenez from Costa Rica who is working with Ramon to establish the Costa Rican Coalition of Apostles. The coalition continues to attract attention as together they lay groundwork for the future. Like the work of Stair and Perez in Puerto Rico, the team of Gimenez and Jimenez are creating an apostolic synergy as they work together for the nation of Costa Rica.
NORWAY AND THAILAND
Norwegian Jan-Aage Torp Works in His Home Nation and in Thailand
Jan-Aage Torp, who spent much of his childhood in Thailand and speaks fluent Thai, traveled to Thailand to experiment with the concept of helping someone start a national coalition for Thailand. While no coalition has been officially formed, the work continues as interested parties are contacted and information shared. In his home nation of Norway, Jan and his wife Aina have been developing a nucleus of activity in his home city of Oslo. Starting in an unlikely location, Jan-Aage explains, "I started a new work on April 22nd in a pub in downtown Oslo, right between the Stock Exchange and the Red Light District. The pub owner is a Sikh from India, and he loves our church, even though he is still not born-again." Explaining the tremendous growth of gathering five-fold ministers on a weekly basis Torp explains, "This summer, God told us to gather 5-fold ministers in Oslo, and we have now grown to 24 from our city alone." Now, apostolic leaders from other European nations are inquiring about these gatherings while Jan and Aina explore options in forming a coalition of apostles for their nation. Meanwhile, people are driving 4 or 5 hours just to be prayed for by Jan-Aage and his team. Focusing on a transformational vision for his city he concludes, "We have also started a Media Forum with some of the top media faces in Norway contributing, with the objectve of raising a true Christian voice in the media of our secularized nation." He even received a letter from the Queen of Norway complimenting him on a recent media event.
MALAYSIA, SINGAPORE AND INDONESIA
Apostle Naomi Dowdy Laying Foundations in Southeast Asia
Apostle Naomi Dowdy continues to work in Malaysia and Singapore to create a National Coalition with Apostle Indri Gautama serving as Convening Apostle of Indonesia. Apostle Naomi has created extended influence and connections in these nations as much of her life has been given to serving the people of this region of the world.
Setbacks in Zimbabwe Delay the Creation of a National Coalition
Ambassadorial Apostle Phil Nordin reports on a dire situation in Zimbabwe. On a personal level, Nordin tells ICA that Convening Apostle Ken Haskins experienced a fire that destroyed his entire office with all records, equipment and furniture. He is requesting prayer for him, his family and staff. Nordin further explains that this event "has naturally taken his attention away from the coalition at this time." But he has encouraged Haskins "to take steps to establish the coalition as best he can." As a nation, the situation in Zimbabwe is desperate. According to Nordin, the United Nations has listed Zimbabwe as the poorest nation on earth. He writes, "Police have check-stops every 60 - 100 miles on the highway to find some small infraction and bribe drivers for money. Unemployment is at an all-time high," says Nordin and "Money is scarce and makes travel difficult." Apostle Phil plans to return to Zimbabwe in April of 2013.
Apostle Naomi Dowdy Sees Progress in Columbia
Working with Columbian leaders for a number of years, Apostle Naomi Dowdy is in perfect position to serve as an ICA ambassador to that nation. In a recent trip to Columbia, she orchestrated a number of changes at the highest levels of leadership in the burgeoning Colombian Coalition. Many of these leaders plan on coming to the United States to attend the ICA International Conference. We welcome them into the ICA family and look forward to working with them.
Briesmeister and Palo Create Early Momentum in Zambia
Andrew Briesmeister reports that Apostle George Palo is moving ahead on the Zambia Coalition of Apostles. Zambia has nine Provinces. So far there are three Provincial chapters of the Zambian Coalition of Apostles. The strategy is then to create relationships with apostles in local districts within these Provinces. Apostle Palo is planning a major nationwide gathering of apostles in Zambia on 12-12-12. He asks that we keep this gathering in prayer.
Ambassadorial Apostle Miguel Perez Returns from Initial Trip to Ecuador
ICA continues to hear from apostles in other nations requesting information on establishing national coalitions in their home nations. Lori Holder recently said, "I have some apostles in Guayaquil, Ecuador very interested in forming a national coalition of apostles. They want us to go there and help them in the process." Miguel Perez, Ambassadorial Apostle to Puerto Rico, recently met with 15 Ecuadorian apostles about starting their coalition. Please pray for wisdom and a clear direction from God as ICA moves forward in establishing coalitions of apostles in these and other nations.
Bishop Okabe Implementing National Strategy for the Ugandan Coalition of Apostles
Ambassadorial Apostle John Macknamara reports that under the Convening Leadership of Bishop Patrick Okabe the Coalition had their second gathering in Kampala, Uganda in September. The first meeting of the Ugandan Coalition of Apostles was in held in Entebbe last year with 20 apostolic leaders attending. Bishop Okabe reported that over 100 apostles attended the latest meeting with many more planning to connect in the future. Okabe writes, "It is wonderful to see the Lord gathering leaders in to the Ugandan Coalition of Apostles. We are building a national apostolic coalition. We have held a meeting in Entebbe with several leaders from Kampala and Entebbe. We have also held another meeting in Eastern Uganda. We plan to have one again in Kampala. As a national convener for apostolic coalition in Uganda, it is my desire to connect with more apostles countrywide." Okabe's team of leaders has embarked on forming regional ICA coalitions throughout Uganda. The first Regional Meeting was held for Eastern Uganda in Mbale Town. They are making arrangements to hold another ICA meeting with apostolic leaders in Northern Uganda, Western Uganda then return to Kampala. Concerning the future Bishop Okabe states, "Next year in 2013, we plan to hold the National conference. I have even had calls to have ICA set up in Kenya, Tanzania and Rwanda. But I am more focused on making it strong in Uganda first." It sounds like his strategy is working!
Apostle Kluane Spake Targets Social Transformation as a Purpose for the Coalition of Apostles in the Solomon Islands
Ambassadorial Apostle Kluane Spake recently appointed Belani Tekulu as ICA Convener of the Solomon Islands. She has instructed him concerning ICA National Coalitions function and released him to build the coalition. Spake summarizes the economic and cultural challenges that people in the Solomon Islands face citing issues like the following: Urban centers, including the capital city of Honiara is relatively undeveloped with hardly any paved roads, sidewalks, or major industries.
Abuse of women is a huge problem with 69% of the citizens involved in continual domestic violence and violation of common women's rights.
Education is limited for young people who roam the streets and highly addicted to the narcotic effects of the betel nut which is ingested by chewing it.
Naturally, with the above issues, there is high poverty, crime rates, teen pregnancies, dropout rates, illiteracy (69.4% - the worst in the Pacific!), infant mortality (4 out of 10 die before age two!), malnutrition, among other debilitating social issues. Apostle Kluane is using her influence and the voice of the burgeoning coalition of apostles in the Solomon Islands to address these social issues with great success. Together, these leaders have created extensive and detailed strategies to address and improve each of these areas. Spake reports progress, "Most of these same pastors now report that they are working in some sort of revenue producing idea. Several now have stores; one has developed a community farm where the proceeds go into the church savings account for emergencies. One has a market for agriculture goods. One went from subsistence fishing to a
fishing business and he also grows huge vegetables. One has now opened 26 Christian schools in the Province of Malaita. Another has several small income businesses. One Honiara member started a cab business and they now they have 26 cabs. The pastors have begun to consider their wives as more equal partners. Many have their wives partnering in their business." These are huge accomplishments considering the considerable weight of culture that resists these changes. Accompanies by Pastor LaVonne Brown, Apostle Kluane convened the first meeting of the Solomon Islands Coalition of Apostles with 30 attendees, most of them relating with Apostle Belani from with the city of Honiaria and from outlying islands. One of the challenges that the coalition faced was local church leaders resisting the idea because it was not a denominational meeting. But Spake was glad to report that "after the first day, everyone was totally on board with the idea! Quite an amazing turnaround!" The Coalition paperwork is now completed and ready to be authorized by ICA.
Resistance to the Apostolic Message in Ethiopia
There has been considerable backlash following the commissioning of Apostle Daniel Makonen in Ethiopia. Ambassadorial Apostle Phil Nordin explains, "The organized church (Coptic) in Ethiopia rose up and wrote articles about Makonen and his 'apostolic authority' in the local papers denouncing him. It created a significant stir." Then in March of this year, Nordin reports, "An Ethiopian Professor from one of the colleges in the United States wrote a lengthy paper about me and the apostolic movement. He then travelled to Ethiopia to gather churches and present the paper. The paper was published to denounce apostles today and any apostolic function they may have. The paper listed a number of lies about me, Peter Wagner and Daniel Makonen." Attempting to set the record straight, Nordin has been interviewed a number of times in Ethiopia and spoke at some national conferences explaining the truth. He concludes, "I did not sense any noticeable damage in my influence there from any of the ministries I relate to - but it has made it considerably more difficult for Daniel to establish a coalition at this time." We must make sure that specific prayers are offered up for Apostle Makonen, Phil Nordin and the other apostolic leaders in Ethiopia.
Convening Apostles Selected
Ambassadorial Apostle Joan Hunter has appointed Brendon & Shelia Hade as Convening Apostles in Ireland. Plans are being created and information shared as the vision of creating the Irish Coalition of Apostles is shared.
Apostle Joan Hunter Reports Great Meetings in Haiti
Last year, Joan Hunter recently selected Apostle Rene Joseph and his wife Dorentia as Convening Apostles of Haiti. Recently she spent several weeks in Haiti with the Josephs. They conducted evangelistic/healing services and laid foundations for the Haitian Coalition of Apostles. She reported at the beginning of the trip that they had 3 services with hundreds of people in attendance and, "everyone that the team or I prayed for got healed!" Later, Joan described another meeting this way: "WOW! There is no way to describe today. Over 2600 crammed inside and out of a building." Later, she would report that over 5,000 people were coming together in other locations to hear the Word of God and for healing. Joan will continue working with the Josephs to identity and gather apostles in the nation very soon.
Convening Apostle Paul Getwaza has Initial Meeting with Interested Apostles
Rwandan Convening Apostle Paul Gitwaza has been working with Canadian Mel Mullen and Norwegian Jan-Agee Torp to create the Rwandan Coalition of Apostles. Getwaza reports, "Concerning the ICA here in Rwanda we are on the embryonic stage. I invited 50 ministers together and shared with them about the need of meeting and forming an Apostolic Coalition. But 34 people attended and seemed interested." He requested prayer support from the ICA membership saying, "We need prayer so people can catch and grasp the vision." Let's stand
with Apostle Getwaza as he requested.
Convening Apostle Selected and the Honduran Coalition Moving Forward
Apostle John Morrow, Ambassadorial Apostle to Honduras, is seeing the Honduran Coalition of Apostles move forward. John informs us, "The convening Apostle in Honduras is Leonardo 'Nayo' Martinez. He is well known throughout Honduras and parts of Central America as well. His church is in San Pedro Sula." After a recent visit, John reports, "I just returned from Honduras where we set up the Honduran Coalition of Apostles with three founding members." They are excited about getting started and will do a good job of nominating others for membership." They have made scheduling plans, created procedural foundation and settled some financial matters as Morrow comments on his leadership team, "These are three quality men of God whom I respect greatly." He then adds, "I will be in frequent contact with them."
The Mexican Coalition of Apostles Forming Quickly
Appointed spokesperson Javier Martinez early in 2012 informed ICA that "We want to start a Coalition of Apostles in Mexico." Working alongside a team of apostles that include Oscar Venegas, Dr. Carlos Gordillo, Carlos Quiroa and others, Javier explained that, "We have agreed in principle that it will be a horizontal organization." In a joint effort that included representatives from the Canadian Coalition of Apostles, Apostle Kelly recently visited Mexico to help oversee the formation of the Mexican Coalition and commented on its formation, "With Oscar Venegas, Carolos Gordillo, Carlos Quiroa, Dave Carson and others, you have begun what appears to be an excellent team." With many Apostles working throughout Mexico, there is little doubt that the Mexican Coalition of Apostles will accomplish great things.
Apostle Joseph Adefarasin Targets Capital Cities for Apostolic Gatherings
The Nigerian Coalition of Apostles has held two meetings designed to share the vision of ICA and give apostles an opportunity to join the coalition. Both meetings were held in Lagos with another planned for Abuja, the Nigerian capital. After that, Convening Apostles Joseph Adefarasin explains that state capitals all over the nation will be systematically targeted for strategic gatherings over the next two years. Adefarasin reports, "There were many expressions of interest, which have translated into about 50 applications for membership. We are expecting a large Nigerian delegation at this year's ICA International Conference." We look forward to welcoming our Nigerian brothers to ICA Conference this year!
Dan Juster Continues to Work on Creating a Coalition of Apostles in Israel
Ambassadorial Apostle Dan Juster in Israel recently told Mark Pfeifer, "I would love to get you connected in Israel." He then adds that he is "still am in dialogue with John Kelly about an international ICA conference in Israel." You can learn more about Juster's ministry in Israel at tikkunministries.org.
TOGO AND GHANA
Apostle Randy Brown Uses Compassionate Ministries to Draw Apostles Together
"Togo and Ghana are doing well," says Ambassadorial Apostles Randy Brown from New York. "We are actually having ICA meetings on each of our trips into Togo West Africa later this year. Our meetings have grown to include about 25 of the Apostles in the nation." Regarding his compassionate outreaches Brown says, " The orphanage is doing also well. There are about 50-75 children ranging in ages from newborn to 18 years old. We are very thankful to the Lord for blessing us to bless the children. The desire of my wife and I is to build a brand new orphanage, school and ministerial training center from the ground up. Our weekly television is going well, too. It is keeping us and the ministry in front of the people of the nation. The hospital that we are sponsoring is in good shape also. We are trusting to do a large delivery sometime next year 2013." Apostle Brown calls the excitement
of the men and women who are connecting to ICA as "Wonderful!" Twenty leaders came together for fellowship with the Browns for two days on a recent trip to Togo. Describing the event Brown says, "We prayed and discussed where we feel the Lord is taking us as an Apostolic voice to reach the nation of Togo."
Key Relationships are Being Built As Coalition Forms
While attending the ICA International Conference last year, Natasha Vermaak from South Africa knew that the time was right to start planning a conference to lay the foundation for the South African Coalition of Apostles. Invitations were sent to several apostolic leaders in South Africa and Apostle Kelly, accompanied by Robert Henderson, traveled to South Africa to meet these leaders and explain the ICA vision for National Coalitions. Presently, details continue to be worked out for the South African Coalition of Apostles as relationships are being built. More information is forthcoming.
Apostle John Morrow Eyes El Salvador as the Next Place to Start a Coalition
Ambassadorial Apostle to Honduras John Morrow recently shared his plans to meet with other apostolic leaders in Central America saying, "I will be identifying and working with some Apostles in El Salvador." He is coming to ICA this year to discuss plans on conducting an apostolic conference in El Salvador early next year. We look forward to hearing more!
Catherine Brown Testing the Waters in Scotland
New ICA member Catherine Brown has been working for a number of years in her nation raising awareness of the purpose and place of apostolic ministry in the church today. Her ministry, Scottish Apostolic Network Enterprises (SANE), is connecting with ICA to create an opportunity for apostles to
emerge and unify for the future of Scotland. Regarding SANE, Brown says, "The network was not only for apostles, but for all in the five-fold ministry and our intention was to raise awareness and understanding about apostolic ministry's functionality across the denominational streams, the church and the market place." So far, she and her team has been able to peak interest among Scottish church leaders and she is hoping that a relationship with ICA will enhance her ability to make apostolic ministry in her nation a reality.
Jonathan Hansen Uses Longtime Contacts to Find Apostolic Leaders in Kenya
After seeing the vision of ICA National Coalitions last year, Apostle Jonathan Hansen went to work in Kenya looking for apostolic leaders to serve as a foundation for the Kenyan Coalition of Apostles. While no coalition has yet been formed, leaders are being thoughtfully and prayerfully vetted so a strong relational foundation can be formed.
The Australian Coalition of Apostles and Prophets Yields Another Possibility
David and Royee Jensen have travelled to and from the nation of Bougainville for many years establishing a work that has benefited the citizens of the island in numerous ways. Their reputation on a national level is renowned. While Apostle Kelly was meeting with the Australia Coalition, Royree expressed interest in creating the Bougainville Coalition of Apostles. If anyone was equipped and ready to lead such a coalition, it would be the Jensens. Please pray for wisdom and guidance as opportunities are explored.
Ambassadorial and Convening Apostles Established in Trinidad
ICA member Kathleen Verna lives with her husband in the
Northeast region of the United States. Originally from Trinidad, Kathleen was moved last year when the vision for national coalitions was given at the ICA conference. After contacting Mark Pfeifer, she began working to form the Trinidadian Coalition of Apostles. After appointing Christopher Douglas and Terrance Honore as Convening Apostles, Verna and her team have been making plans to establish a coalition. We look forward to hearing more about their progress.
SPAIN AND PORTUGAL
ICA Looks to Have Coalitions in Spain and Portugal Sometime Next Year
Amillo Sevilla of Spain and Antonio Cavaleiros of Portugal have both expressed interest in starting coalitions in their respective nations. If you have any connections or influence in these nations, please contact Mark Pfeifer and let him know. Thank you!
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
ICA Looking to Create Regional Convening Centers Across the United States
Apostle John Kelly has been strategizing for over a year concerning the formation of the US Coalition of Apostles. As such, geographical convening centers with convening apostles will be selected across the United States to provide regional opportunities for ICA members to connect and be encouraged. This will provide ICA an opportunity to have an ongoing presence in the lives and ministries of its members across the United States.
NAMBIA, LIBERIA, CROATIA, NEPAL, UKRAINE
ICA members who either live in or have strong connections in these five nations have expressed interest in forming coalitions. Some work has already been done in each one but a coalition has yet to be formed. If you have any connections or influence in these nations and would like to help, please contact Mark
Pfeifer and let him know.
