How did you first hear about the Good News of Jesus? Probably when someone told you—someone who cared enough to share it with you. Like those at the heart of this Global Story…
Welcome to “The Global Story,” a weekly glimpse into how God is at work through the global Body of Christ. This is Galen from Global Disciples.
It’s wonderful to have a passion for reaching people with the Gospel. And it’s even better to share that passion with others and equip them to join you in taking the Good News of Jesus to those who need to hear it. As Global Disciples, we have the joy of working alongside Christian brothers and sisters around the world who share this passion and are dedicated to equipping others to be disciple-makers among the least-reached.
Hming directs a discipleship-mission training program in South Asia. And in a recent report, he talked about those who came for training. “Most of them are young people; they really do not know how important it is for the Gospel to reach the least-reached areas,” Hming said. “But God opened their hearts through the lessons they learned, and the Holy Spirit empowered them, so they were eager to go on the outreach ministry. We were blessed spiritually and physically.”
Hming sent the disciple-makers out in 2 groups into predominantly Buddhist communities that he described as uneducated, undeveloped, and where there is no Christian church. The disciple-makers taught the Gospel, using action songs to help communicate the message. One woman had been suffering from mental problems and deep-seated fears but when Hming’s team prayed for her, she was healed immediately. Now at peace, she accepted Jesus as her Savior. And three others also accepted Jesus when they witnessed her miraculous healing.
Hming said, “Many people came to understand the love of God through what Jesus has done for them. When they know what God has done by His great salvation—not by their good work but by faith—they ask God’s forgiveness and glorify Him. More are willing to hear the Gospel, and we have further opportunities in this area. We are hopeful we can plant two new fellowships in this area,” he said.
This passion for sharing the Gospel has led Hming to train others, and it’s exciting to hear how God is multiplying the Kingdom as a result.
