REPORT FROM THE HARVEST FIELD
“When I see how God is using our teaching (planting and watering through God’s Plan for His Church training manual), in the way of Christ and the Apostles, I feel like I want to get a loud speaker and tell the church, PLEASE LET'S RETURN TO THE SCRIPTURES! It really works! Today's church and mission gets further and further away from the Scripture alone and continues to do the "same-old-same-old" expecting different results. I will concede to another model other than the biblical model if you can find one that can reach the same size area and diverse people that the early church reached from Jerusalem to Rome in 25 years. I will also concede to another missionary strategy if it can reach from Antioch throughout Asia Minor in 11 years, and I will even let them use phones, planes, motorbikes, e-mail, etc. If this is not possible, then let us return to the biblical model! Return to an indigenous and self-sustaining model that depends on the Holy Spirit, increases the Headship and Lordship of Christ and builds on the sufficiency and authority of God's Word alone!
“How do we communicate this philosophy”, I asked the Lord this morning. He seemed to indicate that we continue to plant and water with the assurance that He knows what we are doing and He knows what works, and this time-tested biblical philosophy can only be revealed by the Holy Spirit to those open for such teaching, otherwise it remains hidden. Regardless, I believe with all my heart and soul that we are on the right track, so let us press on. I do believe we have got to be careful and selective in who we teach and when, in order to be as effective as possible. This cannot just be a course to add onto some existing western program. Rather it requires a complete and total paradigm shift accomplished ONLY by the Holy Spirit through the authority and sufficiency of God’s Word.” Tim

Thank you so much for your work and words of encouragement to all who will listen, read, and believe. GOD and his word the BIBLE are the only true path for any of us to reap, plant, gain understanding and wisdom, for our lives and to assist the lost. May the HOLY SPIRIT go on before you and illuminate your path and of others likeminded.
