[18 March 2017, naadg] As much of the US is enthralled in what is called March Madness, the theme of “At the Half” reminds us all that the game cannot be won in the first half of the game. Thus far in our project here we have shared the gospel in 89 venues to an estimated audience of 19,000 individuals. While we are humbled by this we know for certain that the bulk of the work is in front of us.
Saturdays are always a doubled-edged sword for the team while we are on mission in a remote place. It is the day of rest from the week’s hectic schedule, but it also seems very long and uneventful because we have the day light hours off because schools are not in session.
Today we had a gathering of our executive team here for a time of training, coaching, encouragement, and discipleship. Mark Chase did an excellent job in teaching these about investing into the lives of new believers. It was much needed and greatly received by these brothers. In addition to the discipleship training I was able to encourage them about the ongoing work in front of us. It was a time of reflection and remembrance as well as that of reinforcement and responsibility about the ministry ahead of us. These guys live a hard, but humble life of mission and ministry. Please remember to pray for them all.
This next week of ministry is ramping up to be very intense. The dental clinics are now finished as David left for the USA on Saturday morning. Once again we all want to express our gratitude for his ministry.
I trust we can continue to count on your prayers for us as we travel down dusty roads to share Jesus with people who have never before heard the gospel. On behalf of Jeff, Mark and Andy,
I am grateful!
