Since our last update we have had 6 short term teams visit. We have traveled to villages in 2 other countries. We have also been working through the grief of many colleagues returning to the USA.
Like everyone else with our organization we have been asked to consider returning to the USA. The process of seeking God’s will for the next season our lives has been exhausting to say the least, but a few weeks after seeking counsel from many godly brothers and sisters and months of prayer, we confirmed that God is calling us to stay put as the team leader for the SEAM people. Although, we miss our family and friends in America and are deeply burdened for the spiritual condition of the USA, we received this calling with joy (and honestly a little relief).
Please pray for us in 2016.
-Pray that we can Love God and Neighbor
-Pray that we can Abide in Christ
-Pray that we can Enter new relationships with lost SEAM people
-Pray that we can Share the Gospel with Persons of Peace
-Pray that we can Disciple new and existing believers
-Pray that we can Gather disciples into Churches
-Pray that we can Train Hmong leaders
-Pray that we can Die to ourselves to make it possible.
In 2016 we challenge each of you to Love, Abide, Enter, Share, Disciple, Gather, Train, and Die to yourself in America. We are deeply concerned for the spiritual state of America. A new POTUS will NOT change that state, only a new KING. It is up to you the Church of North America to introduce your family, friends, and neighbors to their rightful KING.
Looking forward to next year,
The Great Commission Studies (CGCS) is the hub of Southeastern’s Great Commission efforts, helping develop students and faculty members who are Great Commission servants of their local churches. The CGCS serves the Southeastern community in four major areas: academics, research, mobilization, and convention relationships.
