Paul* and Janet* have launched a DOVE church plant on Faza Island. Interesting! Missionaries in DOVE Africa are not usually considered to be church planters as they serve among least-reached people groups, so this is very unique. God has given them favour among other believers on the island as the church focuses on evangelism in the local community. We praise God for this breakthrough.

Pandemic prophetic ministry –
Words of hope from South Africa


Elnie and Ashley Ottow serve as DMI missionaries in Cape Town, South Africa. Despite that nation being ravaged by the COVID pandemic, Elnie and Ashley’s team, Bethesda House, has flourished as people turn to God to ascertain His destiny for their lives. In fact, by the end of April they had delivered 51 prophetic sessions for individuals who were in 17 countries. Furthermore, throughout February and March they were able to teach a prophecy webinar to 30 students from around the world. Such ministry is already continuing in May.

We praise God that despite restrictions on meetings, His word is still bringing life to people online. We thank God for Elnie and Ashley’s resilience in God and their ongoing commitment to bless the nations.

New platform to pray for missionaries

A guide to direct specific prayers for missionaries is now available online. These pages provide prayer requests for missionaries serving from Canada and the USA. We do not post about the missionaries from parts of Africa for security reasons.

Building relationships with parents in Kenya even with schools closed

DOVE’s school in northeastern Kenya had classes for one term this year, then had to close abruptly when the government issued a second pandemic lockdown. DOVE missionaries there have been meeting with parents in small groups to empower them with an understanding of the new learner-centered curriculum in Kenya and also support them with ideas about how they can help their children during this time of being out of school. Their input is one more way to build trust, develop relationship, and share God’s love. The school expects to open its doors again this month as restrictions ease.
