I began a new coaching relationship today with an SRC colleague in South Asia (via phone and video conferencing) and for security sake, I will call him Isaac.
Isaac's community is predominantly Hindu. His parents found the Lord but Isaac rebelled and did not give his life to Christ as a teenager. After becoming strung out on alcohol and drugs, his mom calmly pleaded with him to give his life to Jesus. That night he prayed with his parents and repented of his sins.
We had another wonderful time of fellowship in our Discipleship Zoom group today.
Last week, I introduced the Church Circle, a teaching tool that covers the basics of being a disciple as well as a church. Going forward, we will dive into each of these topics with the goal of modeling how each of the group members can start a group and go through the same study with existing or new believers.
Today, we focused on the Good News. I learned that one of the students learned that there is no end in sight for their lockdown on campus. They were expecting to be able to get off campus soon but was told it could be months. He can only leave for two hours twice a week so our group is planning to do lunch with him soon and he was very excited about that. Despite this news that was really crushing to hear, he had the opportunity to share the Gospel with one of the students on his campus. This same student recently started a new Discipleship group on his campus.
Praise reports, updates, and just about anything important that is written by someone within our global Silk Road Catalyst family.
