Changing Lives Today
In the Gospels, we often see how Jesus reached out and changed a person’s life. He healed the sick, made the lame walk, the blind see, and freed those who are in spiritual bondage. We read those stories and marvel at His power and compassion.
Well, today Jesus is still changing lives.
Stories from the Democratic Republic of Congo illustrate His power and His compassion in action. These stories come from disciple-makers and church planters who were trained and sent out through our Global Disciples partner programs.
In one village, where a woman heard the disciple-makers talking about Jesus’ love and power, she rushed home and came back with her lame child. She had heard from everyone around her that there is no way her son would ever walk. He was too crippled. But she believed Jesus could do it. And the church planters prayed for her child in the name of Jesus. Within a month, the boy started to walk!
During another time of outreach, the church planters met Rose. She was suffering from terrible inflammation in her knee. When they laid hands on her and prayed in the name of Jesus for her healing, she was healed. The pain disappeared! And three days later the inflammation was completely gone. Even better, Rose believed in Jesus Christ as her Savior and was soon baptized.
One team of church planters met three people who were possessed by demons. They shared the Gospel with them, prayed for them in the name of Jesus, and all three were set free from the forces of Satan!
Matana had been chased from her home because of demonic forces in her life. When she heard the message of Jesus, she too gave her life to Jesus. And destroyed all her tools for witchcraft. Another life was touched and set free, in the powerful name of Jesus.
Yes, Jesus is working in powerful and miraculous ways today, in some of the hardest and least-reached places. He’s setting people free, drawing them to a new life of hope, freedom, grace, and power.
Praise His powerful name!
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 when 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!
The Beauty of Local Sustainability
Global Disciples believes local sustainability means indigenous churches around the world can fulfill their part in the Great Commission.
Biblical Truth – Allowing the Word of God to Speak to Us
The Word of God is used by the Holy Spirit to convict us of sin, lead us to salvation, and teach us how to follow Jesus in daily life.
Leading Discipleship from the Kitchen
Jesus Christ did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. A servant leader is a Christ-like leader.
