2 Timothy 2:2 principle and Reaching Africa’s Unreached vision:
“Disciples who are shepherds-in-training should begin at once to train others,passing on what they receive from their trainer.”Reproducible Pastoral Training: Church Planting Guidelines from the Teachings of George Patterson (p. 60)Patrick O’Conner
Would you please take some time today and days ahead to pray for 34 young (North) Sudanese men who will be joining us on July 16th – 20 for discipleship training. Their heart is to go back to their own tribes in the Republic of Sudan to plant and shepherd churches. I just received a report from a young man who is headed back to the Nuba Mountains to proclaim the glorious gospel. Most all of the some 90+ Nubian tribes are without a church. This brother had been with us twice for multi-day teaching retreats…I love his heart for Jesus and His mission! Pray for him as well.
Pray also for Pastor Jason Van Bemmel and Bob Brown of Forest Hill Presbyterian (PCA) who will be traveling from Maryland to join us in the teaching.
