• Our hope-filled future is bound up in sharing the story of Jesus, in discipling others, in bringing those disciples together into communities of believers, and in developing and releasing those believers to create other communities... till Jesus the King comes again!

Mission11 Africa Update[2]

Each Mission11 conference is unique.  I am once again amazed by the people that God has brought into the WT community and their passion to “multiply disciples and communities of believers.”  Gathered together in Cameroon for the next few days, here are some highlights from today:

  • Prayer and worship … prayer and worship … prayer and worship.  Mission11 Africa has been full of times of praise to our missional God, and prayers for the spiritual needs of the unreached here as well as in other Areas.  Tonight, WT workers here prayed for WT workers in the Americas.
  • “On community” is a three session workshop looking at what it means to live in community and to experience that kind of community in a small way here.
  • The WT Africa leadership team presented ideas about future project plans in light of our global vision and global currents.
  • Christoph shared from Exodus 17:8ff about how community was demonstrated when Aaron and Hur “held up his [Moses] hands, one on one side and the one on the other side,” as Joshua led the people of Israel into battle; when Moses held up his hand, the people prevailed, but whenever he lowered his hand, the Amalekites prevailed.  Each member of the ‘community’ had their part to play, but together in the power of God they saw God work for His glory.  He applied this truth to us today, by pointing us to Hebrews 12:1-2, and our need as a community to help one another as we face sin in our lives and seek to be transformed by His forgiveness and grace.

More to come ….

  1. We rejoice with the Africa brothers and sisters and send our greetings from Moldova. We once had some friends from the US ask us where in Africa is Moldova :). We may not be close in location, but we praise the Lord for like-minded vision and passion for true discipleship and worship! David I hope you are able to get some “real” coffee there.
