If I am completely honest, what I am getting to do as part of New Life Global Ministries is better than I ever imagined anything like this could be. Yet, I really should not be surprised. As a young, but zealous follower of Christ, I received a vision from God that one day He would let me be an active part of reaching the Nations. And today, HE is allowing me to do just this as one of the leaders of NLGM!
How can this be? Acts 2:17 provides an answer. As the Apostle Peter responded to the those who did not understand what these uneducated men were doing, he quoted the Prophet Joel when he said, “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” That vision given to a young 19-year-old in the mid-80’s is now being lived out through individuals connected with NLGM, and the dream of seeing The Great Commission fulfilled in my lifetime is becoming a reality!
If you question the validity of this, let me state what God has done, and is doing, in just three short years of our existence as a ministry. We have had the honor of encouraging, equipping and empowering followers of Christ to be disciples who make more multiplying disciples in five different countries, on four different continents, where we now have established partnerships in three different areas, with the potential of reaching 35,000,000 people with the gospel of Jesus Christ just in these regions. Expand the potential of just 1% of these trained, disciple-makers in each of these areas multiplying to other nations and people groups, and you quickly have exponential growth that changes the world. And believe it or not, that is exactly what we are seeing at NLGM – lives are being transformed into faithful ambassadors of Christ who are literally proclaiming His Great Salvation to the people around the earth!
As wonderful as it is to be part of something so much bigger than any of us at NLGM, it is simply quite humbling to know that The Master Plan has always been just this – SIMPLE OBEDIENCE TO THE KING!
Thank you for being part of this over the years. Your prayers, financial support and/or participation in going to others here, there and everywhere is changing the world. I rejoice in all that He has done! But I also know there is still much work to be done in His Name. So, I want to personally invite you to join me (and our NLGM team) in being disciples of Christ who make more disciples of Christ, until there is no place left without the gospel.
