    With your help we are able to train leaders living near least-reached communities to multiply disciples.

Santu grew up Muslim in South Asia. His family is still Muslim. But when he came to understand the Gospel—that Jesus Christ loved him enough to die for his sins—Santu knew he had to put his faith in this Jesus.

“I faced many challenges,” Santu said. “My father threw me out of the house while I was still a student. But I was able to stand firm in my faith.”

Four years ago, Santu heard about Global Disciples. And with the support of local church leaders, we trained him to direct a discipleship-mission program for their churches. Santu shared, “We faced many challenges, and much opposition. It’s difficult to serve the living God in our region when more than 92 percent of people are Muslim. Pray that we will be able to reach them and win them for Jesus.”

At times, they’ve contended with floods and other problems in gathering participants for training and going out to witness and plant churches. But they have seen God’s hand at work, drawing people to Himself.

Santu said, “One day, during our outreach, I saw a group gathering in front of the house. There was a small child in the home who was very sick and close to death. We told them that if they believed in Jesus, when we prayed for the child, he would live. We prayed loudly and waited for the glory of God to be revealed. And after some time the child began moving, and we continued to pray in the name of Jesus.” And soon the child was healed! And for several people there, a new life of faith in Jesus began. Praise God!

Santu is just one of many who found new life in Christ, and now work tirelessly to share the same life-changing Good News with those who are still waiting to hear it. Pray for Santu and the disciple-makers in South Asia as they risk their lives daily to fulfill the mission Jesus gave to His disciples.

Can the Gospel of Jesus Christ reduce the murder and crime rate in an area?

Hawi knows firsthand what’s possible with God.

Hawi is a pastor in Ethiopia. He and his church thought they couldn’t do much for the Kingdom. Then he connected with Global Disciples and he began equipping and sending out disciple-makers to take the Gospel to least-reached people.

He said, “God called us from many nations and languages to serve Him. I have no story to tell other than the story of what God has done.” And it’s a remarkable story.

Hawi’s region of Ethiopia is largely Muslim and Ethiopian Orthodox. It’s known for its high murder rates, crime activity, and witchcraft. So sharing the Gospel there is risky and challenging.

Hawi said, “The first time we trained, we sent out 25 disciple-making church planters to the rugged mountain areas. They planted 5 churches.

In the second training, three more churches were planted. Now we have 15 growing churches, and five more emerging, new fellowships.”

And they’re seeing the Lord moving in a mighty way through this growing number of believers and churches.

“God is transforming our region totally,” Hawi declared. “Those who practiced witchcraft are now in the church; former criminals are now in the church. The local authorities are cooperating with us. They say what they could not control with a gun, is now being controlled by the love of Christ. And it is so good!”

Miracles of healing and demonstrations of God’s power also open eyes and hearts. Hawi said that one day a group brought a very sick man to the church. When Hawi and the believers called on the name of Jesus, the man was healed! He got up and started eating and drinking. About 17 of his friends—mostly Muslim—came to Christ.

In fact, Hawi reported that last year, nearly 400 Muslims came to faith in Jesus and were baptized. And now another 250 are preparing for baptism!

In this dark and difficult place, the light of Jesus is shining through. And God is at work in powerful ways, through people like Hawi.

Praise the Lord for His incredible work of transforming lives for His glory!

“I thank God for calling us to do missions,” Moses began. “My heart is filled with joy for the work God has used us to do.”

Moses directs a discipleship-mission training program in Democratic Republic of Congo—or DRC. He recently shared some of his story with other directors and leaders at a Global Disciples gathering. Like many of those directors, he has faced difficult challenges in conducting the training and the outreach. Years of civil war and conflict have left DRC’s economy in shambles. Infrastructure, highways, power—all things we take for granted—are either minimal or non-existent. They use the Congo River and other waterways to travel long and often dangerous distances.

Yet Moses and his fellow directors persevere. And as Global Disciples, it’s our privilege to come alongside and help them fulfill the vision and mission God’s entrusted to them. Moses said, “Working together with Global Disciples, God helped us plant many new churches. And they now work to reach other tribes and peoples.”

He gave the example of their outreach to one village where about 45 people came to faith in Christ, and started a new fellowship. It became a base for the disciple-makers he trains to continue reaching into the surrounding communities.

Moses is an advocate for our Global Disciples small business training. He said, “With our small business training we have opened a little shop in our village that helps support the ministry. And it gives us an opportunity to interact with people. We’ve also invested in a boat that we use for travel up and down the river for our outreach, and we generate some income as well.”

Other ventures—like a tailoring shop and a library—are contributing to both support the training program and to give them more opportunities to share the Gospel.

Despite the hardships and challenges, Moses knows the joy of mission as he carries on equipping a new wave of disciple-making church planters to share the Good News of Jesus.

“We have experienced the Holy Spirit’s movement and power during our outreach this year,” Chiso said, joy beaming from his face. He directs a discipleship-mission program in Malawi, and was eager to report on how God had worked in and through the young disciple-makers he trained.

Chiso said, “The Lord helped us win a lot of souls to Christ. The number of people who were born again was 713! All these people came to Christ as we went door-to-door and talked with them.” But it hasn’t stopped there!

Chiso also reported how they saw God act in an extraordinary way. One miracle involved a 10 year old boy named Steven. He had been paralyzed since birth, and it affected what he could handle in terms of food or movement. Every night he cried from stomach pain. His parents had looked for help everywhere but no doctor ever found a solution for young Steven’s problems.

When his team met Steven and his family, Chiso said, “We shared the Word of God with them, and we assured them that even though the doctors had no solution for them, God can take care of Steven. He is Jehovah Shammah—the Lord is there. He is present whenever we call to Him. I told them it’s not just about mentioning the name of Jesus or God, but your connection to Him in faith.”

They prayed for Steven then. And instantly, God touched his body and he became strong! The stomach pains left him. He was totally healed! Praise God!”

What a miracle to witness! And it also opened the door for more people to put their faith in Christ.

Since then, this disciple-making team has planted three new and growing churches, and many are being discipled. Chiso said, “We praise the Lord for the multiplication of disciples!”

So do we—we want to people to be touched by the power of God, to see lives transformed by Christ, to see churches planted, and to see disciples of Jesus multiply in Malawi and around the world!

“I give thanks to God and Global Disciples,” Chetan reported. “Since we started our leadership training in 2011, we’ve trained 675 leaders, pastors, and church planters.”

Chetan directs leadership training and discipleship-mission training near his home in Nepal. He’s seen tremendous growth as they reach out and share the Good News of Jesus. Through the discipleship-mission training, he’s trained 6 groups of disciple-makers, averaging about 15 participants per group, and so far, they’ve planted 32 churches in nine different areas of Nepal. The leadership program has multiplied too – planting another 27 churches.

Chetan said, “In our district, there are one hundred fifty churches; our vision is to have a church in every village. One place we preached, 11 people came to Christ. Another group wanted to have a church there so we gladly handed the new believers over to them. In another village, 40 people believed. It’s very far from our base and so the follow up was going to be difficult. But a nearby church offered to help and they are now looking after these believers.”

But it’s not been easy. Chetan reflected on the challenges they face. “When one person believes, there is persecution,” he said, “When one family believes, there’s opposition. One place we planted a church, a local police officer gave us land on a lease to establish a church. Our prayer is to purchase the plot. But the community is circulating a petition to keep us from building a church there.”

At times, those participating in the training were difficult to deal with, Chetan says, “With spiritual training, we must humble ourselves and serve. We spent much of our time in prayer. I have 11 prayer warriors who prayed for 72 hours, and God blessed and worked in this area. The Holy Spirit has helped us develop workers for the ministry.”

With prayer, persistence, and a God-given vision to reach those still waiting for the Gospel, Chetan and those he serves are seeing the Lord do great things in their area of Nepal.

Being a church planter is hard work. And if you’re planting a new church where people are unfamiliar with the Gospel and there’s little support, it gets even harder.

Sanyu trained church planters through a discipleship-mission training in Uganda. He’s seen the struggles and the challenges these men and women face as they seek to reach others with the Good News of Jesus. So he’s incorporated our Global Disciples small business training to help them use business to support their ministry and their families.

Sanyu said, “Some church planters confessed that they actually considered leaving the ministry because they couldn’t support their families. As we talk now, God has opened their eyes to doing business to support their families and many are now happy to continue in the ministry.”

Initially, Sanyu trained 15 church planters to look at what God had placed in their hands that could enable them to do some kind of income-generating business. Several started shops or salons, another has a bakery, and one started a small pharmacy.

One church planter thought he had nothing at all. Sanyu said, “He studied on what’s in your hands. He realized there were brickmakers in his community. He saw an opportunity to start a brickmaking business on his piece of land. He now makes and lays bricks, and his business has enabled him to meet his family expenses.”

Many of these church planters are reaching rural areas in Uganda, and they’re seeing God glorified through the new churches and the impact of these small businesses. It’s just a beginning. Sanyu said, “We need more small business training. Businesses open many avenues to share the Gospel, and help sustain our ministry and outreach efforts.”

Will you join us in praying for and supporting the efforts of Sanyu and many more disciples of Jesus around the world, who are training and equipping the Body of Christ to reach the least-reached with the Good News?

Dawit is a young man in Ethiopia with a heart for sharing the Gospel with people who need to hear it. He was trained as a disciple-maker through a Global Disciples partner program. When it came time to do the outreach portion of the training, Dawit prayed about where he should go. The Holy Spirit directed him to a small village where most of the people are Muslims.

Soon after he arrived, Dawit met Ahmad, another young man and a dedicated follower of Islam. As they talked, the Holy Spirit was working in Ahmad’s heart. When he heard about Jesus Christ, his heart and mind were opened and he received Jesus as his personal Savior.

Overjoyed with his new life, Ahmad went home to his family and shared the news. But his father refused to let him in the house. His brothers beat him and kicked him. Every time he tried to talk with them, his family would abuse him, and they even burned his Bible!

Ahmad went back to his new friend Dawit for help, and soon found a place with live with a family who were disciples of Jesus. He stayed with them as he was being discipled and preparing for baptism.

However, the Holy Spirit was still at work on his behalf. One day, a messenger came to tell Ahmad that his parents and siblings were sick—they wanted him, Ahmad to come and pray for them. He and Dawit went and prayed, and soon his family members were restored to health!

On the day of his baptism, Ahmad’s parents, brothers, and sisters came to watch. They listened to the Gospel, they heard his testimony, and by the end of the day, Ahmad’s entire family—all 16 people—had received Jesus as their Savior too!

Today, Ahmad boldly preaches the Good News of Jesus as Savior! And Dawit continues to follow the Holy Spirit’s guidance as he nurtures the growing church in this village.

Praise God for the way He leads his people and draws others into new life in Christ!

As Global Disciples, we want to see people around the world have the opportunity to choose and follow Jesus Christ. So we get excited when local churches in other countries catch the vision for reaching those still without the Gospel in their own region.

Cho is a church leader in Myanmar—or Burma—who shares our vision. His church is focused on reaching the Buddhist population in a developing city close to them.

“Our hearts were touched by the Holy Spirit,” Cho reported, “and our vision is to reach these people. Their spiritual eyes are blind and they live in a city that has a very dark spirit.”

With the help of Global Disciples, Cho has started a discipleship-mission training program. During the training, he saw the Holy Spirit work in the lives of those who participated. They found their spiritual lives transformed and renewed. Cho said, “They committed their whole lives for Jesus, to share the Good News in least-reached areas.”

For their outreach, Cho and these young disciple-makers went to the city they were concerned about. They shared the Gospel in the local market and the Buddhist temple. He reported, “We talked to families, spoke with women and children, and taught them songs and Bible stories.”

Some people objected, including the local chief. Cho said, “They called us into their office and warned us not to preach anymore. But we went out with our group and kept sharing the Gospel!”

As a result, two new churches were planted and 17 new believers were added. Cho was also rejoicing, saying “This has transformed our church people—they now value the spiritual lives of unreached people, and they are eager and committed to reaching them with the Good News of Jesus.”

Catching the vision, training and sending out workers for the spiritual harvest, and then multiplying new followers of Jesus Christ. That’s exactly what we want to see as Global Disciples!

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?

If someone mentions a “tea garden”—you likely think of something peaceful and idyllic. A beautiful garden filled with flowers and trees, where you can sit and enjoy tea, maybe something good to eat, or a relaxed conversation with friends.

But if you live in north-east India, into Bangladesh, or Nepal…a tea garden is the plantation of tea bushes. It means hard work, walking steep hills, a basket on your back, and long days in the sun and wind.

A tea garden is also a place for discipleship. Tati and his wife live in a tea-growing region and work in the gardens. Recently he participated in a local discipleship-mission training. He said, “I learned many things about God and Jesus Christ, and how to share Jesus with others.”

In his outreach, Tati returned to the tea gardens. He visited 15 plantations in about 40 days. “I shared Jesus Christ among the workers in the tea gardens,” he reported. “We prayed for one child who had a terrible fever and she was healed. Her family put their faith in Christ as they saw this miracle in the name of Jesus. Praise God!”

Tati led six people to faith in Jesus. Now he and his family see it as their mission to share the Gospel among those who are working in the tea gardens.

Hira is also working in the tea gardens alongside her husband and she was encouraged to take the training. Hira said, “I prayed many times to attend; I’ve never learned this way before and I’m very blessed.”

For outreach, she shared the Gospel with the women and children in the tea gardens.

She said, “Two families put their faith in Jesus Christ. It was amazing to see them become children of God. I want to share the Gospel of Jesus with these people until they all receive Him as their Savior!”

Thanks to Tati and Hira and many others like them, disciples are multiplying and Christ is growing His Church in the tea gardens of Asia!
