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

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?

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!

“We thank God for the work He is doing through our discipleship-mission training,” Mukisa wrote from Uganda where he leads one of Global Disciples’ partner programs. He was excited to report on what he’s seen God do through the first disciple-makers they trained and sent out.

For the outreach part of the training, the nine disciple-makers went in several directions. Mukisa took three with him. He said, “The Lord led us to do outreach among an unreached people group over the border in Tanzania. In that place they are mostly Muslim.”

While Mukisa and his team followed the Lord’s direction, they had a small problem. When they reached their destination they had no place to stay!

Within the context, visitors usually stay with someone they know—even if it’s only a vague connection. But they knew no one! So Mukisa found a guest house for a few nights but they didn’t have money to pay for rooms for an extended stay.

“We believed God would provide,” he said. “The second day as we went to witness about Jesus to people in the community, we met a woman who raised chickens. She was upset because a wild cat was disturbing and eating her chickens.”

Mukisa and his disciple-makers prayed with the woman, asking God to help her and take care of the problem. Within a short time, the wild cat was gone! The chickens were left in peace. And grateful for God’s help, the woman helped the outreach team with support and provided a place for them to stay.

And God blessed their evangelism—they saw over thirty people came to faith in Jesus Christ in that little Muslim village!

Mukisa rejoiced, “God has saved them. And now our church understands the need to reach unreached people. Before, it was outside our thinking but now we know we can do it! And we will continue!”

We rejoice with Mukisa—to see these disciple-makers and this church in Uganda embrace the mission to reach the least-reached with the Good News of Jesus Christ.
