The Joy of Holy Spirit Transformation
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.

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!
