One of the things I often pray for is that God would lead us to eager and hungry hearts who want to discover what the word of God says. So many use a method of lecture to teach a subject, but the retention and understanding is much less with that method than it is when persons discover for themselves. The method we use in training creates in persons a desire to learn because they are discovering, often for the first time, what God’s Word says about a subject.
Here is a testimony from Myanmar that we just received. It gives a great insight into hearts there.
“It is exciting to train in the Word of God using with GPHD and GPHC. The training was held with 38 people were taking the course under the temperature of 43`C (109 F) for two days. They came from 8 different churches. Some came by bicycling for an hour. The farthest one came from the mountains and traveled over night to come here in Kalaymyo (Kale). The people are wonderful. They are so hungry for the Word of God, and when they study, they study deeply. They have agreed to meet again in August 2019.”
This reminds me of Luke’s comment regarding the Bereans; “Now these Jews were more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so” (Acts 17:11). Let’s promote this attitude, first in ourselves, and then in others.
