NEWS FROM S. E. ASIA
Over the years we have been training church planters, pastors and leaders, we have continually kept in mind the principle of leaving behind us faithful Timothys “who will be able to teach others also” (2 Timothy 2:2). These Timothys must be indigenous leaders who can pass on more effectively than we can what they are learning from Scripture.
One such leader has translated God’s Plan for His Church (GPHC) into the Hmong and Dao languages and with his team of Timothys has expanded the training among Hmong and Dao people groups. This is on the border of China where most of the unreached people are located. GPHC provides them with a church planting model that is not only biblical, but it can truly reach people groups for Christ without the cost of buildings, degrees and even money. Among the Hmong and Dao, training is often slow, but effective. Those who seem to have the most difficulty learning are the ones who are most effective and fruitful in planting churches.
Paul said of people like this that “the word of the Lord sounded forth from” them because their “faith in God has gone forth everywhere” (1 Thessalonians 1:8). What joy and thanksgiving this gives us! Please rejoice with us in this news as we praise God for His faithfulness. Since there are hundreds more people groups to reach, we ask that you pray with us that this work might expand even more rapidly until the Lord comes.
