You will be touched by the testimony of a dear brother in Liberia who attended the training in Nairobi, Kenya last week. He gives perspective from a student’s view point on the results.
“I give God glory and praises for you, for the wonderful fellowship we had together and for revealing to us the hindrances that are affecting the today Churches and the Biblical solution through the power of the Holy Spirit.
I once more thank you again for all the care, support and words of encouragement to do ministry that works in line with the practices and function of the Early Church. I personally feel challenged as the only pastor from the western part of Africa to be the one who will carry the vision of "God's Plan for His Church" to my Jerusalem which is my country Liberia, and to Judea and Samaria which are the neighboring countries (Sierra Leone, Guinea & Cōte d’Ivoire) and the uttermost parts of the World.
I thank God for the safe traveling mercy upon all of us that attended the training. My regards to all your families and ministry partners. Thank God for my fellow faithful pastors for the love and fellowship we shared in Christ. The Lord bless the ministry work that He has called us to carry out in our various countries.” (Edited only for clarity)
It should not surprise us that when the Word of God is faithfully proclaimed, the Spirit works with “full conviction”. This was true of the Thessalonians. “Our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit, so that you became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia” (1 Thessalonians 1:5–7). What a powerful result! This is what God is seeking in every ministry, and in every place, so expansion is a natural outcome from the Spirit’s work.
