But that is not all! News of what God is doing there has reached the Christian Vietnamese community in Southern California. We were contacted by a pastor in Corona indicating their desire that pastors from Vietnam come with us to do the training with their church leaders. How amazing after years of trying to inspire interest in our own country (USA), it takes the work of God in a foreign country to ignite the spark of interest here!
What cause for praise! It wasn’t Jerusalem, but Thessalonica that became the springboard for the gospel to move further into Macedonia and Achaia. Paul says, they “became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and Achaia. For not only has the word of the Lord sounded forth from you in Macedonia and Achaia, but your faith in God has gone forth everywhere” (1 Thessalonians 1:7-8). These dear brethren in Vietnam are truly a present-day Thessalonica!
Rejoice with us! We invite you to visit the “Training Resource” page of this website and look at the manual used to train these believers. If you are interested in experiencing the same dynamic work of the Spirit in your life and church, please contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
