As COVID-19 has shut down travel and many of the training events that were scheduled for this year, we began asking the Lord where we should put our energies. We have put our two books, God’s Plan for His Disciples (GPHD) and God’s Plan for His Church (GPHC) into an interactive format (pdf). This allows the students to place their answers to the reading and questions right in a text box alongside the question. They can also go back to edit, add or change what they wrote.
The value of this format is that students who are more apt to use a computer or electronic device can do so without having to carry another book with them, and it certainly saves on printing costs. The pdf file can be sent and received anywhere in the world that internet is available.
I suggested to one of our “Timothys” that we put the Vietnamese translation into this interactive format so it can be used in S. E. Asia where there might be conditions that security is an issue. He was very excited about the idea. This format was completed last weekend and is now being used to multiply effective training of disciples in that area of the world.
Other languages will also follow this format as soon as possible. Pray for us. Doors are being opened in Africa that are only the work and hand of God. All this reminds us that God is never limited by any conditions that prevail in the world. He said though Isaiah, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:8–9). Let us not forget this, nor limit in our hearts what He can and will do!
