Two members of the NFI team were in a S. E. Asian country recently and were so encouraged. The “Timothys” who use God’s Plan for His Disciples (GPHD) and God’s Plan for His Church (GPHC) as training tools, are living examples of Paul. They both work and are independent of outside support as they seek to follow Paul (2 Thessalonians 3:8-9). They both are trailblazers with the Gospel, with a laser focus of fulfilling the Great Commission; going to hard places where people have never heard the name of Jesus. But most of all, they seek to be faithful, with hearts that have been changed and are continuing to be shaped by the power of the Spirit through the living Word.
The NFI team met with them and talked about their strategy to go to the Hmong, a tribe in the north. They were encouraged as tribesmen, to cross over the border into neighboring areas and reach the many unreached people groups. The Hmong are more equipped to do this work because they are already familiar with the tribal culture and traditions.
Time was spent reviewing GPHD and the importance of Acts 14:21-22. The Gospel paves the way for making disciples and establishing and strengthening them. These men were particularly concerned about those in the church who were not born again and what role GPHD would play in bringing them to Christ. GPHD really exposes the heart and clarifies where a person is with Christ.
As we hear reports like this, we should be reminded that prayer is key to God’s work moving forward. The Early Church learned how important prayer was and devoted themselves to it. We must do the same in order to overcome obstacles and wage the spiritual battle against darkness.
