This past year has been one of huge transition in the World Mission Centre. Not only have we finally resettled the administration office in South Africa and the USA, but we are also working to better understand how to decentralize the organization in order to get into a position to meet the enormous challenges and opportunities to impact the Kingdom that is coming our way. On another note, Lydia and I have almost completed the building of our home which is being used as a “mentoring” house where we can invite some of our team members to join us for times of intentional mentoring and coaching sessions. The other purpose of the house is to invite senior leaders from around the world to visit us for a time of mutual learning and encouragement which we believe will lead to a better understanding of the challenges that the church is facing. We believe that this interaction will lead to more focused partnerships to reach the unreached.
As we come to the beginning of 2016, our hearts are filled with urgency to see thousands more trained through the Live School to go and present the message of Jesus to those who have not had the opportunity to hear the Good News of the Kingdom.
Jesus said that the Harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. He also said that we are to PRAY the Lord of the harvest to “thrust” out laborers into the harvest fields.
Mass migration and displacement of millions of people as a result of horrific wars, economic uncertainty, social unrest, massive droughts, unusual weather patterns, food insecurity and a lack of good water is causing millions to ask of there is a god out there that really cares for them.
Who else can tell them about the only true God that loved them so much that He sent His Son to open the way for them to have an eternal relationship with a loving Father? Who else can tell them that Jesus is “the way, the truth, and the life: and that no man cometh unto the Father, except by Him” – Except people like you and me that have been given the privilege to hear the Gospel and say yes to His invitation.
We can multiply our efforts thousands of times over if we train and disciple hundreds of thousands of believers that live close to the unreached people of the world so that they in turn can reach millions around them.
The Live School is a unique tool used by the Lord to do just that. Train hundreds of thousands to gather in the harvest.
Thank you for joining us on this exciting journey.
Willie & Lydia Crew
