It is hard to think of a time that is more exciting than right now! What we are seeing God do in these last days is wonderful to watch and be part of in some little way. I am not just referring to NFI, but I see more and more believers being open to follow the Word of God and without shame live out the gospel. Even though evil abounds, from local schools to branches of government and work places, people are standing up for truth, even in the face of persecution. As a result, many are coming to Jesus as their only hope of salvation.
I thank the Lord for so many we know who are counted among faithful witnesses that spread the gospel because the know the glory of Jesus Christ in the gospel. As Paul puts it, "I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes" (Romans 1:16).
As Tim finishes the training in Yangon, his heart overflows with joy at what God is doing. He says, “First let me say that the GTP training this time was the BEST EVER without a doubt. With this and what I am hearing from Randy in Jos, Nigeria, we can honestly say, GOD IS AT WORK IN A BIG WAY!
I have never sensed so much freedom and power (I hope this is not boasting). Thanks for your prayers particularly after the challenges with the translator. With this in mind and hearing from Randy in Nigeria, it sounds like the Lord is really moving, and HE IS! What an awesome privilege to join Him where He is working! I am eager to get back home and see family but I can also hardly wait until I can get back training and feeding hungry souls.”
This report reminds us of Paul’s feelings toward those in Philippi, the very place he was thrown into prison; “Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand firm thus in the Lord, my beloved” (Philippians 4:1). As great as God’s work is in these places and in every people group we find God at work, the concern is always present that His people stand firm in the Lord! We ask that you pray with us that these who have just finished their training go on to greater maturity in Christ and power in the Holy Spirit.
