I stepped into the ballroom and immediately it felt different. To my eyes I saw a lot more color in the room. To my ears I heard many new accents. I struggled with names that to my tongue were challenging to say. It was the beginning of a week long conference our ministry calls the Global Leadership Conference (GLC). What fun it has been to be part of my new team called the Global Development Team.
One focus of our team is to help our leaders and our staff all around the world find and develop the resources they need to respond to God's vision and God's commission to tell everyone about Jesus. You could say we are about teaching and training our international communities how to fish and become less dependent on gifts from what we call phase three countries (US, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, etc.).
Thank you for those who pray and give through us to help fulfill the Great Commission. You know that as a part of the campus ministry sending students to reach the world for Christ has always been a central part of our ministry. Now we are getting a chance to be part of a team that has a direct ministry to the international community. What fun it is. Again thank you.
