What difference does our Global Disciples training make? Let an Indian believer tell you what it’s meant for him, with today’s 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.

“I have done trainings with different organizations,” Nami said. “But Global Disciples’ training stands out for me because its focus is on the Word of God, and on spreading the Gospel.”

Nami directs a discipleship-mission training program in India, launched with the help of Global Disciples. When he had the opportunity to share how God is using their training and disciple-makers, he was eager to talk about God’s hand at work.

Nami said, “The work is spreading. And now we are working in 3 or 4 districts in our state, and a few in the next state. I have trained our young people and others so they can lead our churches when I’m away on outreach.”

As he trains disciple-makers and takes them out to share the Gospel, Nami and his teams have seen many put their faith in Jesus Christ. Several churches have been planted, even some in very difficult places. He reported, “We started a church in one area, but for 2 years we could not go back to them because of the persecution there. In that place there have been many murders but no one is ever arrested.”

Last year, they were able to go again and arrange a meeting. Nami discovered this little church was still going, despite the difficulties and the isolation. They were getting some help and support from several families with resources, and from the local forest rangers. He said, “God has given us favor there, new believers are coming. One man who previously persecuted the Christians has even accepted Christ…and now he’s leading a local fellowship!”

Praise God! Through the power of the Holy Spirit and the faithful witness of His people, He continues to draw least-reached people into new life through Jesus Christ.

Nami is just one of thousands who we serve who are working every day to make sure every person has the opportunity to hear, to choose, and respond to Christ. And we rejoice with him to see disciples multiplied and churches planted in India and around the world.
