There are times when we labor in a place and leave without seeing any evidence of God working through introducing God’s Plan for His Church (GPHC). We leave the result to Him. To our surprise, God secretly works and brings about the fruit at a later time. This is very humbling!
We had introduced GPHC in a place in a S. E. Asia country, and left a bit discouraged that work had not been done on the lessons when suddenly we got written reports and pictures from some of the students. I share some of their comments below. They have been edited for understanding.
“When I attended the (GPHC) training, I compared the Early Church to how we are starting a church. It is different to the Early Church. Before I am not attending the training, I used my own experiences. After I attended the training, I know my experiences are not right, so I committed again to be like Early Church. I am praying to develop churches like Early Church.”
“I can hand over to our infant believers what I learned from the Church Planting Training course (GPHC) so they may be able to make good disciples.”
“I am benefiting from God’s Plan for Church Planting training as follows:
1. I know now what I need for the church planting ministry in my life.
2. I have been confirmed through the Church Planting Training.
3. I can do practically and effectively the ministry.
4. I am seeing the importance of conversion of the soul.
5. I will give the gospel to the needy people. After, I will mature them in the Christian life.”
These are clear evidences that God is at work in their hearts. Will you pray with us that God will continue His work in them and they will become strong in the work of the Lord in their country and the people groups around them. We say with Paul, “I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6).
