Rocky Twyman, the founder of the Pray at the Pump Movement (PAPM), posted a message on the Find Teleka Facebook page on Jan. 23, 2014, saying a new event to help find missing Michigan doctor, Teleka Patrick will be held this weekend.
A day of fasting and prayer is being organized by PAPM, to take place on Jan. 25 and 26.
In December, PAPM held a vigil for Teleka outside the FBI headquarters in Washington, DC, and just days ago urged gospel singer and pastor, Marvin Sapp, to hold a fundraiser on Martin Luther King Day to help find the young physician.
Sapp filed a personal protective order against Teleka in Sept. 2013 stating she stalked him and claimed him as her husband.
A Sept. 2013 letter apparently written by Sapp to Teleka has also surfaced, informing her that she was being stripped of membership of his church.
In the recent statement released, PAPM is once again appealing to Sapp for help, asking him to “have his church participate in the national prayer crusade this weekend,” noting he “could be a powerful force in finding Teleka.”

Teleka, 30, failed to show up for work on Dec. 6, 2013.
The night prior, police found her car abandoned in an Indiana ditch alongside an interstate about 100 miles away from Kalamazoo where she worked with her wallet still inside the vehicle.
Teleka’s cell phone was left at her place of employment, Borgess Hospital.
According to CNN, Dec. 5 surveillance video from a local Radisson hotel shows Teleka at the front desk just after 7:30 p.m. She is dressed in all black and spends about 10 minutes speaking with the reception desk. Teleka then leaves after failing to book a room.
She can be seen exiting out the hotel’s front doors at about 7:48 p.m. and getting on a shuttle bus, which took her to her car, CNN reports.
Police urge anyone with information about Teleka's whereabouts call the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office at 269-383-8748, or contact Silent Observer at 269-343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.
WWMT reports there is a $15,000 reward for information that leads investigators to Teleka.
