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

Discover the joy of Holy Spirit transformation as churches multiply and lives are changed in Northern India.

Have you ever thought about this? What brings joy to God? More churches planted? Or a life transformed by His Spirit?

Well, both, of course. Church multiplication is awesome! It reflects the growth of the Body of Christ. And churches are made up of those who follow Jesus, who are being renewed and transformed by His Holy Spirit.

In our Global Disciples approach to equipping disciple-makers, we eagerly expect to see the Holy Spirit do his transforming work. And it often begins during the training as those who believe in Jesus discover what it means to His disciple.

That was Reha’s experience. Read on to find out more!

Reha’s experience of the joy of Holy Spirit Transformation

A young woman from Northeast India, her family are not believers or followers of Jesus.

Now, Reha had claimed to be a Christian—she had even been baptized.

But her relationship with Christ was not reflected in her life, her actions, or her words. “I was known as a very bad girl,” she said.

And so, because her behavior didn’t match what she claimed to believe, her family despised and rejected her Christian faith.

In fact, a friend told her about the discipleship-mission training through a local church cluster and Reha decided to attend.

At first, she was shy and struggled with the training. But as time went on, the Spirit began to work in her heart and change her life.

So, one day, she confessed her sins, and decided to fully follow Christ in every aspect of her life. She also wanted to forgive her parents for their treatment of her. As the training director reported, “She was transformed completely!”

In fact, Reha finished the training and outreach, then returned home to her parents to ask them to forgive her.

A change of heart

Her parents saw profound changes in her words, actions, and attitudes and because of the Spirit’s transforming work, they and the rest of Reha’s family soon placed their faith and trust in Christ as their Savior and Lord.

Did this transformation last? Oh yes! Today, Reha is fully committed to Christ and led by the Spirit.

In fact, she has become a godly example for young people in her community, and a leader in the youth ministry in her local church.

And The Holy Spirit is at work, transforming hearts and lives and empowering His people to be living examples of God’s grace.

Make a difference today!

Did you know that life-changing stories like Reha’s reflect the fruit and impact of Global Disciples’ mission and vision to multiply effective disciple-makers and church planters among least-reached people.

And you can be part of it too—start with THE REACH! Why not become part of our monthly giving community of people who are committed to making it possible for a third of our world to hear about Jesus. Start here.

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!

Did you know there is no age limit to carrying out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ?

We don’t get to leave the mission to the younger generation just because you reach a certain age! And the youth don’t get to leave the responsibility of sharing the Good News of Jesus to the older generation.

The pages of world missions include the accounts of many men and women who actively served all their lives—even into their very old age.

Global Disciples Has No Age Limit

As Global Disciples, our approach to training is appropriate for just about any age group.

Those who participate in our partner training programs are often younger people…but not always. In fact, in some places and cultures, a person with more life experience is better heard and has a level of influence the younger adults don’t have.

Age is certainly not a factor in God’s eyes as a report from a training program in North India reminds us.

The Program Director talked about Gowri, a woman in her mid-50s who participated in the discipleship training. While that doesn’t sound very old, you do stand out when you’re training a bunch of 20-somethings! And there was some concern about her going on outreach, and whether it would be too hard for her.

Gowri And The Great Commission

But when Gowri went into her time of outreach, God used her powerfully!

She was bold in her witness, going up and down the street, door to door, starting conversations, and sharing the Gospel with many people.

In her region, most people are Hindus or Sikhs, and often resistant to Christianity.

But the Holy Spirit moved in Gowri’s testimony and she introduced quite a number of people to Jesus.

The program director reflected, “These participants saw a great move of the Holy Spirit.

The Great Commission And Community Change

They were motivated and received the vision to reach others. And we have seen a great change in the community wherever the Gospel was given. About 20 people came to Christ, and 5 have already been baptized. And new house fellowships have started.”

Young or middle or older—your age doesn’t matter.

What matters is sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. And that happens through disciple-makers empowered by the Holy Spirit of God, in North India or anywhere in the world…including right where God has placed you, in your home and community.

When Husna came to a discipleship-mission training in North India, she had a story to tell. Her path to faith in Jesus Christ was not an easy one.

Husna grew up in a Sikh family, zealous for her faith, and devoted to one of the leading gurus in her religion. Then her grandfather, also a Sikh, became very sick, and every doctor they went to see said he wouldn’t survive.

However, a follower of Jesus met Husna’s family and shared about Jesus and His love for them. The Lord touched Husna’s grandmother first; she went to church and placed her faith in Jesus as Savior. Soon, the rest of the family also put their faith in Christ.

All except Husna. She stubbornly refused, going her own way, clinging to Sikhism. Then she too became sick and nothing helped. Her family prayed for her and shared the Gospel, the pastor visited too, but she still resisted.  Only when she was healed did she reluctantly go along to church.

But her change of heart didn’t last long. Husna went back to her old ways even though they didn’t bring her peace or happiness.

In fact, several times she tried to commit suicide. Once she jumped into a deep canal, but some people passing by pulled her out. Another time, she took poison but her family found her, called the pastor, and prayed for her. And God saved her life. This time she gave her life fully to Jesus, and committed to serving Him.

When Husna had the opportunity to take the discipleship-mission training, she leaped at the chance! Through it, God worked in her once rebellious heart, and her commitment deepened. Husna said, “In this training, God has blessed me, made me strong in my faith, and called me to serve Him to the end of my life.”

And God is keeping His Word to Husna. She has married another Christ-follower, and now they serve as church planters among many unreached people in North India.

Praise God for His wonderful work in Husna’s life and the many who were part of her journey to faith.
