Global Partners is deeply grateful to the many Wesleyan churches, pastors and members for their outpouring of support this year. What an encouragement it is to know so many are moved by the need to send people to reach the unreached.
Through your faithful prayers and giving, some of the best leaders have been sent out of your churches. God is truly using what they have surrendered to him to reach the world.
We often refer to the statistic that 4 in 10 persons live without access to the gospel — meaning more than three billion people do not have a witness to the transforming power of Jesus Christ in their community. As Romans 10:14 says, “how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard?” This mission matters. This is why we go.
This year, a missionary couple was mobilized after receiving confirmation from the Lord to serve as missionaries during their experience with NEXT — a mentored cross-cultural immersion internship. Now, not only are they blessed to pour into the hearts of those in Fotizo, they also get to pour into other NEXT interns who visit the field.
In the midst of chaos and uncertainty due to the war in Ukraine, Global Partners’ missionaries and international church leaders have been the hands and feet of Jesus in some of people’s deepest moments of need. They’ve been able to host regular gathering times with food, Polish language classes and fellowship. They’ve been able to bring supplies across the border to Ukraine and they’ve opened a free store to provide food, clothing and basic household items. The stories of impact go on and on.
Our team of missionaries who have been temporarily unable to serve in Haiti due to civil unrest have remained committed as they expectedly wait on being able to return. In the meantime, some of them have been able to serve elsewhere, in Africa. They have felt welcomed into other fields and have felt blessed in their work. We thank God for their generous hearts.
We were able to see international leaders come together in fellowship and worship this past May for an Everywhere to Everywhere conference. These leaders spent intentional time testifying how the Lord is moving around the world. They prayed together, encouraged each other and learned from one another. No one could not deny the fact that the Holy Spirit was present in powerful, tangible ways.
We are deeply grateful for all the ways God is using our team across the globe to Unleash the Kingdom Force in pursuit of reaching the unreached. We praise God for those who have partnered with us along this journey, helping make all these Kingdom Force statistics possible.
