Lou Ann and I send heartfelt greetings to you in Jesus Name.
The mission of theis to “make ” of everyone, everywhere, until the end of time, I.E. all our lives.
We are to do this locally as we are all the missionaries Christ has sent to the people we rub shoulders with everyday (5:17-21). We are also to have a heart for those outside our immediate circle of relationships (Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth).
I continue to be convinced that the best, most optimum way to effectively make disciples in other cultures is by coming along side thein that culture. Indigenous missions is the most effective way to obey the worldwide mandate of the Gospel to make disciples. Linguistically, culturally and financially it just makes sense and IT WORKS.
You working together with us and the believers in Zambia has been a fruitful experience. As we provide training and equip key leaders they in turn are training and equipping more leaders who are training and equipping their congregations to take the Saving Gospel of to their own people. AND they are multiplying churches which means people are being saved! .
WE are asking you to remain with us in the coming years as we continue to work in indigenous missions with Hope Builders Ministries.
Your prayers and financial support sustain us and enable us to continue working with hundreds of indigenous missionaries who are reaching thousands with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your partnership with us.
As you can see our website has changed and we are now using WordPress. I have a lot of work to do on it. Patience Please and IDEAS are welcome.
