God of The Unexpected

Have you ever been surprised by God? You anticipate one thing—maybe even dreaded or fear it—and then you see the Lord do the unexpected instead? But God is a God of the unexpected! Read on and find out how Global Disciples Canada is partnering with a miracle working God!

God often chooses to work in unexpected ways.

In fact, Beni experienced one of God’s surprises. He directs a discipleship-mission training program in Kenya, and when it came time for outreach, he and his team of disciple-makers went out to share the Gospel in a large community.

It was going well. Beni said, “Then the Lord told us to move on to the next village.”

However, their host pastor warned them against it. That village was controlled by a gang of rowdy young men, known for substance abuse and alcoholism. And the surrounding communities were all afraid of them.

Beni acted on the warning but “our witness became a huge failure,” he said.

Young men become disciples

“So we went on to that next community where we were received surprisingly well. As we prepared to show the Jesus film, the local boys promised to be our security! They saw to it no one would touch us or our equipment!”

The same young men that everyone feared, God used as security for the visiting disciple- makers!

Even better, many of the gang members turned their lives over to Jesus Christ, as Beni’s team shared the Gospel with them and with the community.

The power of the gospel in action

The power of God broke chains of alcoholism, substance abuse. It began transforming the lives of over one hundred people who put their faith in Jesus.

In fact, the community’s reputation completely changed! Where once there was fear, now neighboring villages were amazed to see what God is doing.

God of the unexpected miracle

Beni reflected back, “God spoke that the work in one village was done, and we should move on to this troubled village. He led, He protected us as ministers in an unexpected way, and He brought many extreme sinners, I mean, those who others had written off, to Himself. When God says something, He knows what He is saying.”

And as Beni discovered, He may surprise us with the unexpected if we obey and follow Him.

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!
