A Promise in Action
John 12:32, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”
Jesus said if I be lifted up then I will draw all men unto me. I am continually amazed at how our Latin American church planters take this simple promise to heart and put it into concrete actions. Last year we trained more than 850 church planters and this year we are going to train and send out more than 1500 church planters. Praise the Lord!
The passion and complete abandonment for Jesus of these church planters continues to inspire me. Listen to some of their testimonies:
From Uruguay: “God has given us great goals for the church we are planting. We hope to have 80 members within 6 months and within 1 year; we plan to open a feeding center for children. Please pray for all of these things to happen in Jesus’ name.”
From Bolivia: “I used to be the type of man who spent his time drinking with his friends. When I came to know Christ, my life changed completely. Now I am working for the Kingdom of God as a Pastor. Please pray for our church to continue to grow and multiply.”
From Columbia: “I used to be an abusive drunk. God shed His mercy on me and saved me and changed my life completely. Now I use the things I experienced to help others come to know Christ. God helps me to preach salvation and do His work. I pray He will help me to reach my town for Him.”
I hope that their stories touched your heart like they touched mine. I pray that these testimonies challenge you “Lift Jesus up” this week.
We are approaching our goal to plant 8000 churches throughout Latin America. If you would like to partner with us in training and sending church planters, please contact us or send a donation. Please pray for me as I will be in Honduras next week to launch an initiative to plant 3500 new churches in Central America. Later this month I will lead a team of pastors to preach in 30 new churches that we have planted in the past 2 years.
Thank you for supporting our work to plant new churches UNTIL ALL HAVE HEARD!!
