A Mother On Mission

There is something powerful about a mother on a mission. Mothers are amazing people, aren’t they?

God gives them hands to touch with love and strength, and feet to take them where they are needed most. Arms to embrace in love or lift the weak. Minds and voices to guide, direct, encourage, and correct. Eyes to see need and ears to hear another’s joys or sorrow. And hearts to love their families, their communities, their God.

A Mother On A Mission

God includes mothers in His amazing work to nurture their children to know and follow him and reach out and nurture new spiritual generations. As Global Disciples, we hear stories of mothers who are part of what God is doing to birth, nurture, and raise His children of faith.

Sarah is one of those mothers on a mission. She came to Christ as a teenager in Tanzania. She pursued her walk with Jesus as she matured. Then, she married a young pastor, and they were blessed with several children. Together they planted churches along the coast, in a challenging Muslim region. Finances were difficult, and during a tough time, Sarah’s husband started an argument. He accused her of having a “poverty spirit”; and that he had not experienced “the blessing of God” since they married. Then he left her and their children.

Heartbroken

Sarah was heartbroken; she and her children had almost nothing. Despite her husband’s cold words, she continued to hold onto the Lord, praying for His help. God answered, prompting her to study more. So, Sarah worked several jobs to feed her children and put herself through university. She became a teacher and enjoyed success in the city for a time.

Then she sensed the Lord leading her to take a teaching job in another region of Tanzania. It’s an area that is considered a center for witchcraft. People from around Tanzania and neighboring countries come to consult the witch doctors and practitioners. Even pastors come to seek help and sacrifice to “grow” their churches. Sarah believed the Lord wanted her there to make disciples and pray for people.

Global Disciples Helps

Sarah’s church cluster connected with Global Disciples and sent her to Discipleship training. She was equipped and then sent to start a discipleship-mission training program in this community steeped in witchcraft and spiritism.

God has opened doors, and Sarah is nurturing and equipping disciples of Jesus Christ. Her training program has become a church plant. Prayer is growing and it’s threatening the power of the witch doctors. They’re fighting back; Sarah is often threatened and opposed. The local authorities released her from her teaching job—not because of her performance but because of her faith in Jesus Christ.

This mother is on a mission—even if it means standing for Christ in a fiery furnace of opposition and spiritual warfare. We honor her as a woman of God and a spiritual mother to a new generation of God’s family in Tanzania.

Global Disciples Canada is a Christian mission organization that trains local leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples for Christ. One-third of our world hasn’t heard the Good News of Jesus. Yet. Global Disciples refers to these as “least-reached” people, and fewer than 10% of all missionaries work among these groups. We live in a time where many of these people are within reach of a local church. Through our simple and effective strategy of training and coaching, believers share the Gospel in their own nations and cultures. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations,” and we’re committed to doing just that. If you are looking for a Christian mission organization to partner with to become a better disciple and help make disciples, connect with us today!
