Apex, NC Apex is much like many cities in the U.S. A few years ago, it was mainly cow pastures and farms, but now it is a suburb of one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. - Raleigh, NC. Many nations, tribes and tongues are now in this area. We trained a church experiencing this influx of nationalities within its own membership and which has the desire to reach many more throughout the area. 140 people gathered for the training from a variety of ages and backgrounds! We are anxious to hear about the impact those will have in their neighborhoods and in Apex.
Many of you saw the update in our last newsletter about Raju who had worked with teams to share the Gospel 27,000 times in an earthquake zone in Nepal. His team has baptized hundreds and started 6 new churches. Raju has been busy with relief work and sharing the Gospel. We just learned that he has been so busy burying the dead, bandaging the wounded, rebuilding homes, Gospeling, training disciples, and planting churches that he hasn't stopped to fix his own house! He is an inspiring man who has sacrificed much. We are blessed and amazed at his work and love for his people, but Angie is also on his case to love his wife and fix his house, too!
Training in Ecuador
Jeff is in Ecuador this week to conduct a mid-level training for a group of pastors who are seeing disciples multiply and churches beginning to multiply. Pray that this group grabs the vision for No Place Left and begins to preach the Gospel in the darkest, hardest places to go, knowing that God will set them up. Jeff and the workers on the ground there will be coaching and problem-solving this week while walking through the books of Luke and Acts. Join them as they bathe every session in prayer.
2016 Around The Corner
As we have been increasing our prayer efforts, we feel like God is leading us to challenge folks to share the Gospel 100,000 times, train 20,000 people in how to make disciples, increase our prayer and Scripture reading, and engage 20 new Unengaged Unreached People Groups in the U.S. collectively as the No Place Left coalition for 2016. We would love to see thousands come to faith, thousands baptized, and new churches planted, but that is up to God. What we can do is match our attempts to what we believe our God can do. Our God is great, and He desires to reach the nations. God has already promised that the harvest is plentiful! God works powerfully in the midst of suffering, difficulty and the madness the world is currently experiencing. What a platform for God to show off His Son, Jesus Christ, in a big way in 2016!
Ecuador training as mentioned above.
Jeff will be heading to India in December to train with some young men and women from Texas. They will be in NE India. Please pray that no one will have issues with visas and immigration will actually be easy! Jeff is planning 4-6 trips to India next year for training.
We are seeking singles, couples and families to form a team focusing on Charlotte, NC with a strategy of reproducing discipleship.
Join us in praying for and pursuing No Place Left (Rom. 15:23) in the U.S.
