For the past two weeks, the Willetts have been with the 2021-2022 Guatemala Global Year Team, encouraging, equipping and empowering these amazing followers of Jesus in simple steps of obedience to Christ through a 2nd Touch Training. It has been awesome watching these growing disciple-makers receive and reproduce the lessons and tools of healthy disciple-making from the training sessions we have had with them. But even more, it has been so exciting and rewarding to go out into the harvest fields of Guatemala beside these disciple-makers, prayer-walking, gospeling, and discipling new followers of Christ in the simple principles and practices they have been taught in what it means to be a multiplying disciple. They are no longer those who are just learning how to follow Jesus and make more disciples, they have become the followers of Christ who are training others to do the same!
Times like these (where we are blessed to labor beside growing and reproducing disciple-makers) is what we long for and labor towards each day. When it happens, we can't help but praise the One who saved us and commissioned us to this amazing ministry of reconcilation that demands simple, yet, intentional steps of obedience that sees the making of disciples of Christ multiply. This is why we do what we do as His followers...we simply help others follow Him!
Believe it or not, any person who really follows Christ can experience this (be a disciple who helps make more disciples)...if they will surrender to King Jesus, and let Him use them as a disciple who makes more disciples. And as more and more of us discover the simplicity of following Jesus, more and more people, everywhere, have the opportunity to follow Jesus and see His Word and His Spirit use them as multiplying disciple-makers.
Who's ready to follow Jesus and become the next multiplying disciple-maker? Together, we can and will make more healthy, reproducing disciples that will proclaim the gospel of Christ to the ends of the earth!
P.S. It is hard to convey in words how amazing these two weeks have been. So to help share some of this with you, take a look at some of our most memorable moments captured in pictures (scroll down to see pictures). Glory to God! And thanks to each of you who pray for us, financially partner with us, and help send us to the nations to make more disciples.
