Pray for Student Church Planting Movement




Dear Prayer Team,

I am currently at the International House of Prayer in Kansas City (www.ihop.org) and just finished our first 2 weeks of training 15 AMAZING student missionaries from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Canada and United States. The Lord never ceases to amaze me and challenge me in new ways every day. I read a quote once saying, "To see God in everything makes life the greatest adventure!" Well, these past 14 days have been quite an adventure! Thank you for your prayers because we were able to equip these student missionaries with important inner life foundations that will give them the staying power to be life long missionaries in East Asia & Back to Jerusalem: Intimacy w/ Christ, Bridal Paradigm, Fellowshipping w/ the Holy Spirit, Father Heart of God, Core Identity, Eschatology, Intercession, Cross Cultural Missions Dynamics, Back to Jerusalem strategy/vision & nightly spending 4 hours in the IHOP prayer room.

All 15 of these student missionaries have challenged my own walk with the Lord. It has been evident that the Spirit of God has hand picked each one, put a passion for missions in their heart, to the point many of these students have honestly shared that through the last 14 days the Lord has been calling them to literally be willing to lay down their lives as lovers, even martyrs for the Gospel if called to it. I am deeply humbled by their authentic love for Jesus, selfless abandonment & passion to partner with God in His mission. I want to thank you each for praying for this very first "AFF" (Antioch Forerunner Foundation)

Thank you each for praying & supporting this AFF student missions training program! I'm realizing how IMPORTANT this training is to the future of God's end time mission movement. We are literally forging a new work of "prayer and mission" together in order to raise up a new student volunteer movement that will preach the Gospel of the kingdom to every tribe, nation and tounge! We thank God for IHOP partnering with us in AFF so that these students would receive the call to make priority the first and greatest commandment to love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength (Matt 22:37). We can not fulfill the Great Commission (Matt 28:18-20) without first obeying the Great Commandment (Matt 22:37) and that is why AFF is so crucial to student missions because it establishes the heart in intimacy, before we release the vessel in authority & mission.

Today, we transition into the second half of AFF which is Student CPX. We will be taking the 15 student missionaries of AFF and joining them with 20 other student church planters from 13 states and over 5 countries to plant student churches at the largest First Nations Native American University in North America "Haskell University" in Lawrence Kansas. We will need your dedicated intercessions as we pioneer a new work for Christ and establish His kingdom w/ blessings to the first nations students of our nation. We are believing through these next 2 weeks at Haskell University we will see the BIRTHING and BEGINNING of new wave of student church planting movements on campuses across Nth America and into every nation of the earth, specifcally reaching those in the 10/40 window.

Please keep the 40 students & staff in prayer for AFF & Student CPX in your prayer daily from July 20 - Aug 2. This is a new apostolic work that has never been done before in our time. It is exciting, but also very sobering. We desperately need CHRIST to be UPLIFTED in our nation(s) and in this generation. Let's believe God in prayer for another student volunteer missions movement to reach every campus, every city and every nation!

Please also do keep me personally in prayer. My body has been very fatigued since arrival in KC for the past two weeks. It could be the weather change, having to oversee the long days of training and also the spritiual dynamics involved, but I know I'm going to need more prayers for God's angels to give me strength, wisdom and His spirit to finish leading this training well. God's also been humbling me in different ways, I will share in another post what He has been speaking to me. Good stuff fosho! =)

For the Great Commandment and Great Commission,

Jaeson Ma

Will lift all those in prayers. There's a Janice from Malaysia among the team of students in the training right? Hehe..could you send my love to her and said 'hi' for me and I'm keeping her in prayers :)

It's just so amazing to be able to even be a witness to what God is doing thru this generation. Keep the posts coming!
