During our conference here (April 24 to May 2), I received a report and pictures from our colleague, Pastor Yusufu, in Tanzania of a conference ongoing in Geita district (NW Tanzania) with 34 participants using the Swahili “Models”. Of course, the training in different cultures, languages and contexts will look different than here and we’re OK with that as long as the fundamental commitment to the eternal truth of the scripture remains. As we continue to train disciple-makers, that network will expand. The compounding dynamic of the Father’s strategy for His church can be dizzying. Fortunately, I don’t have to know the results, just the command.

One week before our guests arrived for the international pastors training, I was taken to the hospital with what my staff thought was a stroke. It wasn’t, but I was unable to speak in coherent sentences. It was too late to postpone the conference so we prayed and kept preparing. The diagnosis was low sodium due to one of the meds I was taking. God’s divine power enabled me to teach with vigor and strong voice throughout.

My ongoing job as president is to keep the main thing the main thing: Go and make disciples.I expect to finish well. Do I hear an Amen?
