Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we obtained salvation.

Thomas and Gladys Ukwute

On behalf of my family, Ministry and the Students of Project Hope. I want thank you for your prayers and financial support. The year 2020 was a challenging and difficult year but your prayers and financial support have helped us confront the challenges it presented with strength, courage, and hope.

We were able to provide food for over 5000 families who otherwise would have starved during the lockdown and months after the lockdown. But the greatest challenge we face now is the lack of jobs that has left many families still struggling to survive.

In the church many people have not returned back to the church because of the fear of the second wave which has reduced the income of the church about 45%. We have lost so many precious leaders and prominent people to this virus. The fear has increased with the outbreak of Ebola in the West African region which could easily spread to other nations.

We had to close down our skill acquisition center (Project Hope) for two month because of the outbreak of yellow fever which killed over 45 young men and women in matter of weeks. We lost three students during that period. Thanks to God that this has been brought under control after a massive vaccination drive across the State.

When we reopened the school in January 2021 only 60% of our students returned. We are trusting God that the fear the epidemic brought will go away soon to enable others resume.

Despite these challenges we will be graduating and empowering 76 students who have completed their training on the 13th of March 2021. Please keep this in your prayers

We launched an evangelism outreach into the rural areas of Bayelsa, Edo and Delta States for church planting in 2021. Four Crusades have been scheduled in Feb and March. We formed four teams to go into different villages within the period with the Gospel. Please pray for them as they go into these difficult terrains.

Please pray for Nigeria for stability and peace because of the rate at which terrorist are flooding into our forest. There is fear of eminent jihad in this nation which may be worse than Yeman if nothing is done to stop it.

Kidnapping has increased in all the region, killings and violence against farmers and farmland by herders has increased that we may be facing food crisis in the coming months as farmer are afraid to go to their farms.

Please pray for my team and I as the threat against Christian leaders has increased. I now have armed guard outside my house in the village. We need prayers God's protection because this nation seems to be falling apart so quickly.

Thank you very much for all your prayers and financial support. We will continue to pray for His divine abundance upon you and your family. Once again thanks for your prayers and help in making this vision a reality. Together we are affecting the world for the Kingdom of God. God bless you.


In His service,

Thomas & Gladys Ukwute

Farmers ambushed and slaughtered, over 600 children abducted.

Good evening. Nigeria was hit once again by terrorist attacks. A few weeks ago over 100 rice farmers went to harvest their crops when they were ambushed and slaughtered by Boko Haram.

Just few days ago they stormed a boarding school and abducted over 600 children only, 200 have returned home. Please pray for a divine intervention in the rescue of these children. Remember that about 6 years ago over 200 Chibok girls were abducted by the same group, and to date none have been found. It is hard to think about that these children could be sold into slavery because these terrorist are heartless.

Thank you for praying along with us!

The Virus of Covid 19 is  getting out of hand. Please pray for South Africa our beloved Country.

All our hospitals are overcrowded, we don’t have enough ventilators, our people are dying, and doctors and nurses are becoming seriously ill  due to the spread of the virus.   Our people are becoming increasingly desperate  for food and essential supplies.  I have several people in our church that are affected.  In our church, Pastor Bobby Beharie’s wife is critically ill in the I.C.U. Our suburb has become a hotspot… for those of you who are familiar with Chatsworth.

Total Cases  860,964

New cases       7,999

Deaths          23,276

We have seen a rapid spread of the virus in the last week, so much so that there’s a call for a total lock down once again. This means that the number one target, the church, will be asked to close or further restrictions will be imposed.  We have never experienced a season like this before!  However, God is still at work.  At our local church, we baptized 16 people yesterday.  God Can, and God is able!  

Many Thanks!   

Pastor Stanley and Sandra Moodley

Please stop right now and pray for Thomas and the work he oversees, including Project Hope that equips people to support themselves with trades they are taught.

As you may have read, there have been huge violence problems in Nigeria...shootings, robbery, religious unrest, looting, destruction, and more. Brother Thomas Ukwute oversees a net work of GI Churches in Nigeria, and is an incredible apostolic leader. He just sent the following prayer request. Please stop right now and pray for Thomas and the work he oversees, including Project Hope that equips people to support themselves with trades they are taught.


Good evening. Please prayer for the protection of Project Hope. I had to send all students away today but the fate of the complex is hanging in God's hand. The military has been called in to restore peace in the community where we are. I will be heading there tomorrow. The youths are destroying shops and markets as a result of the strange disease that is killing young boys between the age of 15 to 25. They have not been able to ascertain what it is or what is causing it. Surely it is not Covid 19. Please pray for the protection of my night security men, the complex, all our properties and the farm. I am really worried

Thomas Ukwute

Pray and help our brothers and sisters in Nigeria ...

From Brother Thomas Ukwute, Leader of Nigeria:

Please pray for my Churches along River Niger. and Sagbama Creek because of the ravaging flood that is rising by the day in the area. Patani, Tumgbo churches have been submerged. Orua and Agoro churches are under threat right now.

Please pray for my pastors whose houses have been submerged also. The same thing affects all the churches and families in those towns. A humanitarian crisis is looming in these areas needing evacuation and food immediately because houses and farms have been flooded and crops destroyed.

Pray and help.

Thank you for upholding this need and our dear brother / pastor / international minister as he cares for his flock!

Mexico Missions Pablo and Ana Manzewitsch

Update from Grace International Missionaries in Mexico

Dr. Pablo Manzewitsch. Pablo is the apostolic overseer for all the Mission Vision International (MVI) churches in Mexico. He also oversees the missions arm of MVI and a number of other areas. Take time to read Pablo's report, and pray for the ministry. Thanks in advance.

Dear Pastors,

These are days of big challenges, for sure, but also are days of great victories. We are seeing the hand of God moving mightily in the whole world, and specially here in Mexico. The Lord is Protector and Provider for those that trust in Him. Many of our pastors were touched physically, their congregations closed and their finances affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. But as we began to reopen the temples and restart services, we have seen an increase in attendance and baptisms. We have reports of 20 to 30 % growth in most of our congregations, and we are planting new churches. To quote Dickens, it's the worst of times, and the best of times. Truly for the Church is the best time ever.

The level of faith also grew perceptibly among the ministers and members of the churches. I attribute this to the daily prayer meetings that we are having with the MVI churches in all the countries we are present, under the leadership of pastor Juan Carlos Manzewitsch. I believe we are at the forefront of a spiritual awakening in Latin America. I think the Lord is also pleased by our missionary efforts, that increased substantially these past months, not only in Mexico but all over the world.

We have Training Schools in Cuba, India and China, on top of the ones already in Mexico and Argentina. We just finished a International Missions Conference, that gathered churches and missionaries from 30 countries in Africa, South America, Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, Central America, and of course Mexico and USA. We continued to support financially our missions during these trying times.

Thank you dear pastors for your prayers and support. We couldn't do what we are doing without your help and covering. We bless you for that.

Dr. Pablo Manzewitsch
