In every culture, houses and diets change, but the one constant for all people is our need to know God. Matthew 24:14 presents both God’s passion for all people and the reason Christ has not returned yet. “And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations (ethnos or people groups), and then the end will come.” This gospel that has been entrusted to us MUST be proclaimed to every ethnic group that inhabits this planet. And how can we complete this task to which we are called?
Without God’s Spirit empowering indigenous leaders, we will struggle with human efforts to see this Scripture fulfilled. But as we follow God’s plan laid out in Acts and Paul’s epistles, strong, self-supporting, reproducing churches will spread through every region of every nation. It is this plan lived out in God’s strength that will not only reach all people groups, but speed the second coming of Christ. To this end we pray…to this end we “GO”! ~Randy~
Randy’s report from Thailand:
Brother “T” is the director of the Karen Baptist in Thailand. Even in his advanced years, his father is a church planter and evangelist who travels 8 plus hours to reach people on the boarder of Myanmar. “T” desires to pass along his father’s faith and passion to his own son. Please pray for these leaders as they boldly reach out and plant new churches throughout Thailand.
In the rural villages in the mountains of northern Thailand, the pastors and leaders diligently studied God’s Word, looking for God’s plan for His church. It was exciting to see their discipline in searching the Scriptures and the way they helped one another know God’s truth.
These leaders are reaching into the jungles to bring the gospel of Christ to people who have never heard of Jesus, and plant self-sustaining churches. Please pray for these messengers of good news!
