Not only are we fully committed to praying, but the
third Tuesday of every month 
we celebrate a full day dedicated to the Lord during our
May we invite you to mark those Tuesdays on your calendar to remind yourself of this important day in the month.
Tuesday August 17th 
Fasting starts on Monday the 16th at sunset
and concludes on Tuesday 17th at sunset.
As Scripture teaches: “And there was evening, and there was morning;
the first day.” Genesis 1:3

  • The Lord’s gracious provision of our needs as a ministry. We are so grateful to Him for all the donors and intercessors
  • The team of lesson writers who daily spend hours praying and seeking His direction on how to best write down the truth to be communicated in an age-appropriate manner
  • Open doors to our staff who were able to present Genesis Design to students, church young people and even congregants
  • All the members of the boards and their families and our staff and their families who are well and healthy, protected by the Lord
  • A possible new artist and graphic designer to join our team.
  • The 4&5-year-old lessons which are nearing completion. The goal is to have 12 lessons done and available by the end of the year
  • The twenty-five, 1st Year 9-to-11-Year-old lessons, undergoing revision and editing to be ready by the end of the year for use in 2022
  • The work being done by our website developers to create and launch an e-commerce or shopping platform making it possible to order lessons on-line

  • Thankful for God's knowledge of TRUTH with the peace and joy, assurance and guidance that comes with that, especially during this pandemic
  • Healing and restoration upon those that have been sick
  • God's daily protection against the evil of this world and for us, who are His, to remember Jesus is still in control and on the throne
  • The South African Board had a very successful board meeting in June and the 2021/22 budget was approved. Trust the Lord with us that He will make the funds available 
  • A new board member was appointed in Germany – Nico Schneider. Praise the Lord with us for him and his family who have a deep desire to see the young people in their village and the teens in their church, receiving the Genesis Design teaching 
  • He has also taken over the translation work from Winfried Dörr who resigned. We thank God for Winfried and what he has done for Genesis Design to be established and legally registered in Germany
  • The Namibian Board’s Exco, who held a meeting to appoint a new bookkeeper and bank signatories in the light of Ndemufayo stepping out of the position. We thank God for her faithful and dedicated service

  • The lesson writing team for wisdom and inspiration to keep writing and developing lessons 
  • The next age group we need to focus on to develop lessons for
  • Wisdom as we negotiate with two possible lesson writers to assist in completing all the lessons still to be written and developed.
  • Pray that the Holy Spirit will continue to inspire and enthuse the lesson writing team, with new insights into the Scriptures and following the correct interpretation thereof
  • Saturday August 7th the ExCo members of the Global Council will meet to discuss a number of matters concerning the general development of the ministry and the way forward, both in light of COVID but also should we be able to travel and host training courses in Namibia
  • Ministry plans are being put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic – wisdom as to when and how to re-open the ministry so to speak
  • We are hard pressed financially by the closure of the Head Quarters Training Facility, because we may not use it as a result of the government COVID restrictions
  • We’ve had some requests from churches to send teams to Africa to help teach and train teachers in Genesis Design, but they can’t travel right now
  • How to follow up the contacts we made in South Africa to effectively engage those schools who indicated that they would like to use Genesis Design as their preferred sexuality curriculum 
  • We need to start preparing as to how to negotiate the fast-changing worldview and ideology regarding gender, sexuality and marriage. Even some churches and individual believers think we are too radical in what we teach, but it is the truth and therefore we can’t teach anything else, but the truth from the Scripture
  • Overcoming the difficulties of how to “market and distribute” the completed lessons globally
  • How to use the various social and other media options to promote Genesis Design to the millions who desperately need to hear the message effectively, and implement it in their own lives and communities
  • Please pray for South Africa as we continue with the third wave of high Covid infections; and for peace and calm after the volatile situation of looting and rioting that occurred the past week, with much loss and damage occurring
  • Comfort for those that have lost their loved ones during this pandemic
  • In Uganda, schools remain closed. There are negative effects like idleness and many out of wedlock pregnancies. Please pray for the students and for God to use our government to do the right thing that will be beneficial for all
We are profoundly grateful to the Lord for your commitment to pray and intercede for the ministry of Genesis Design globally. We depend so much on your intercession on our behalf. We are truly thankful to the Lord for each of you. Thank you for standing in the gap on our behalf.
