As Jonathan has completed his visit to Nicaragua, Central America, God has revealed how He is working in hearts to open them to return to the Word of God and the principles that must govern believers and the Church. This is what we have prayed for! Here is part of the report as a result of his visit in Managua.
“Wow, what a week it has been down in Managua, Nicaragua! As you may know, Tim was invited to go down to Central America last month to do an introduction to God’s Plan for His Disciples. What he found was a real hunger for the Word. After meeting with Tim and hearing his experience, I had to go down and see for myself.
I stayed with the same Pastor that Tim stayed with. All I can say is, what a Timothy! David has a real heart to see the brothers and sisters in Managua learn to walk on their own and depend on Christ. We spent many hours in the afternoon heat between our GPHD trainings discussing GPHC.
David is a hungry brother who is yearning to return to the way of the early church. He desires to see the Church in Nicaragua follow Paul’s exhortation; to have “no need to depend on anyone” (1 Thess. 4:12) and see “disciples multiply greatly” (Acts 6:7).
What humbled me most about David is his passion and ability to teach the training material immediately. David talked to three church planters/pastors after dinner. We had just gone over absolutes/non-absolutes that afternoon in his house and a couple hours later he is teaching others. This just reaffirms to me that God is answering our prayers and connecting us with more Timothys who can teach others (2 Timothy 2:2).
Hours before leaving Nicaragua, David was teaching absolutes and non-absolutes. We sat together in the afternoon as I had explained this and his response was; “I wish I had known this earlier because I would have done things differently.” One pastor testified that he had lost the passion to preach but is now inspired to get up early and spend time with Jesus! One sister said that she made a big sacrifice to be here for three days but was encouraged by the Spirit and it was well worth it!”
Will you praise the Lord with us for what He is doing, and at the same time pray that His work will expand and grow beyond what we can imagine.
