Living Out the Mission of Jesus
A few years ago, Kofi was ready to give up.
A church leader in Ethiopia, he was discouraged and frustrated with his ministry in seeing only limited results.
“I was about to leave all my ministry engagements,” he said, “and then I came to a Global Disciples Directors training.”
The Lord began to move in Kofi’s heart and mind, changing his attitude and renewing his call to reach others with the Gospel.
Kofi said, “I shared my situation with one of the Global Disciples staff members, and he prayed for me. My life and my attitude changed; I was strengthened to serve the Lord for the rest of my life.”
Kofi returned to his church responsibilities renewed in mind and spirit. And he began a discipleship-mission training program with the help of Global Disciples. As he trains and sends out disciple-makers and church planters, he sees God moving others’ hearts too.
‘This year, 99 people came to salvation in Christ,” Kofi said. “We have baptized 77 of them, with more to come. Since we began, more than 450 people have received Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord. And we have planted 16 new fellowships of believers!”
What joy for Kofi—and for us—to see the change in his life and in the lives of so many others.
On the other side of Ethiopia, Yonas is also seeing God at work. He leads a discipleship- mission training with a focus on reaching a Muslim-dominated region. It’s just the second year of the program—Yonas reported that over two thousand people heard the Gospel of Jesus. He said, “Two hundred and six accepted Jesus as Savior and Lord, and 65 of them have been baptized so far.”
He also saw God heal a prominent Muslim, known by many people in that region. This demonstration of God’s power and compassion has opened doors, and as a result, many Muslims are coming to faith in Jesus.
Praise God for touching the hearts of these men and empowering them to equip and send out disciples of Jesus who are multiplying disciples—not only in Ethiopia but around the world.
Global Disciples Canada is a Christian missions 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!
