With over 180 iGo Global students currently on foreign soil, the front lines of the Kingdom’s advance overflow with good news. Please continue to pray for our teams as you read through some of the reports.
Where the Nations Have Gathered (Western Europe)
Brad Cardwell and I (Shu) are currently on location in Western Europe where we are getting to see the OK GO Students team, the TX SS team, and the JSI’s (overseas interns) in action. It is hard to describe the greatness of seeing these students embrace the core values and our teaching as they daily engage the work here in Europe among the nations. And by nations, we mean this in a literal sense. The nations are gathered in these gateway cities all throughout Western Europe.
The JSI’s are doing amazing work as they demonstrate servant leadership to the students on the two 1.0 teams. Occasionally I run into different people who think using students on the field is a little bit or a large bit crazy. I wish I could drag all those people over here and let them watch these JSI’s, especially the five students serving as the JSI leaders.
The Tip of the Sword (South Asia)
Our backpacking team in South Asia has checked in again after a few weeks out in some of the most remote villages on the planet. Their team leader reported that a native man volunteered to drive their team to numerous villages right about the time they were wondering how they would get to all the villages they had mapped. They had not asked anyone for help yet. This man just showed up and volunteered.
They were also able to share the good news of Jesus with about 15 people that had never heard His story while sitting in the Buddhist Temple in that village. This team has visited many villages in their time trekking throught the mountains of South Asia. As D.H. (the team leader) said, “Not every village has welcomed us or our message, but every village was brought before our Father.” Keep praying for them as they are used by Father to advance His kingdom.
Everything for His Glory (Central Asia)
We also received news from our team serving in Central Asia this week. Our team leader was glad to report that she had the opportunity to milk a cow and harvest eggs…for the glory of God, of course. Their team has been out serving in a remote village as well, teaching English to the people of that village as well as cooking meals (an extreme adventure in itself). They stay up late and rise very early to accomplish all their tasks, but the team has been able to share the love of Jesus with some people that have not heard the good news. They asked us to pray for their health as several of the team members have been fighting off various sicknesses.
And please continue to pray for all of our teams. This week we have more students serving on the field than at any other time this summer. Thank you for partnering with us in prayer.
Brad and I fought off jetlag by posing for a few hours as tourists.
