Don’t Underestimate God’s Choice
As we hear the Good News stories about how God is at work, we’re reminded over and over again that we can never underestimate who or what He may use to accomplish His mission.
Kiran works in Nepal and part of his job is to train and mentor the leaders who direct discipleship-mission training programs.
When he went to visit a church that wanted to start a training, he was surprised to see who they had chosen as a director. Kiran said, “I saw a young man—only 22 years old—and I was disappointed. I expected someone mature, like the pastor!” The young man comes from a group of 35 churches and they decided he was the man for the job!
Since the young man started their training program, he’s trained five groups of disciple-makers—that’s about 75 people! And they’ve planted 8 churches, with between 60 to 90 members.
During one training, some people in the village heard about it and brought a paralyzed woman to them for prayer. When their prayers were answered, the woman was healed, her family accepted Christ and became hosts for one of the new churches!
Evidently God was not worried about the age of this young leader, even if Kiran was!
Kiran also told of a woman who came for small business training to provide support as she helped to plant a church. However, she was shy and felt awkward talking to people in Nepali, which was her second language. But her tailoring business required her to talk to people!
A year later, Kiran said, “I was amazed to hear she had started two new fellowships with about 16 to 18 people attending. And 13 are getting ready for baptism!”
You know, it doesn’t matter if you think you’re too young, or too old, too shy or afraid…never underestimate what God can do with you! Who knows what He may empower you to accomplish? And who you may surprise along the way.
What excuses have you been making about your inability to be used by God?
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!
A Way to Make It Work

Identity and Vocation
Operating a small business as a church planter has economic advantages but also gives the church planter credibility within a community.
Trusting God’s Hand
For Kam and for a group of disciple-makers in Myanmar, following God's lead has led to open doors, new churches, and transformed lives.
