"During these courses I was impressed and moved, but God has worked on my character more than anything."
I was thinking about this statement from this young lady and I was telling myself, “If we are striving to equip people for mission why was her answer, "my character was formed more than anything.”
I thought to myself, “if these are the results, the atmosphere is in fact a holy one,” since before gifts, abilities, or mission strategy, we are and must be holy because we are following Christ’s footsteps. This has brought much joy to my soul because the Scripture says, "Be holy, for I am holy" (1 Peter 1:16).
In preparation for service in the mission field, we must be like the One who sends us on mission.
Before telling people about God, we must copy Him in His character and His way of being. If the E2E program centers on God changing the students lives, then it is more than just an equipment program; it is a context in which the participants know about God and are aware that they are being changed by God, then God’s work continues and He is glorified.
I want to thank you once again for your support, your involvement in prayer, and your encouragement! Please continue to call for God's Name over these students, over our courses and service, that God can be seen both in the lives of the learners and those who facilitate this program!
