Discipleship in Action
I’m beaming inside as I share with you another milestone in our ministry in Papua New Guinea. These three young men just recently finished the One2One discipleship track with Ptr. Sherwin. The One2One booklet is a discipleship tool that we are using in Every Nation to help a person understand and apply the basics of the Christian faith.
Laurie, Sammy and Emmanuel have also gone through Victory Weekend, a two-day seminar that facilitates topics on the freedom we as believers have in Christ. It is a life-changing moment as they surrendered their lives fully to the Lordship of Jesus and made the commitment to follow him. We know that in a few weeks’ or months’ time, they themselves will also be leading others to Jesus.
I would also like to introduce you to Bernadette. She is one of the students that we were able to reach out to last August. Just like Natasha, she is also going through One2One with Ate Roda, the wife of Ptr. Sherwin. This is worth praising God for because this represents another life changed by the Gospel, a life that will touch many more lives. We envision Bernadette as a future leader who will also do One2One with her classmates and friends. This is the domino effect of knowing Jesus personally; it doesn’t just end with us.
Meanwhile, Natasha is continuously meeting with Ate Roda for One2One. The amazing thing is that she was already able to encourage her family to attend church with her. In fact, Ptr. Sherwin and Ate Roda are building relationships with her parents and we are praying that they will also be open to go through One2One discipleship.
Kindly pray for Natasha because she reportedly has a lump on her breast. Let’s pray that Jesus will heal her completely and that through this, she will be more assured of God’s love for her.
Praise God for the lives of these young men and women who are slowly growing deeper in their faith. And I want to acknowledge you for the investments you are making in their lives. The joy is yours as much as ours. Thank you so much for making all of these possible!
EN Campus Staff Summit 2016
Last Nov 8-10 I had the privilege of being part of the annual Every Nation Campus Staff Summit- a gathering of around 400 Campus Missionaries in the Philippines. During this event, we were reminded of the mission we are called to, why we’re doing it, and how best we can accomplish it together.
