Open Doors to India

Open Doors to India

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”

Ephesians 3:20-21

God is opening doors for our ministry, and the Lord has given me much more than I  had asked for.  We now have an official date for a pilot training of the Kairos course with the National Missionary Cooperation of Paraguay. They are an influential regional partner and are part of the Iberoamerican Missionary Cooperation (COMIBAM).

They will invite key young people to be part of the experience of being mobilized through Kairos. This opportunity will open doors for the mobilization of the Latin American church and beyond.

I had the opportunity to present my vision for an exploratory trip to India to my local church. They were happy and excited to see how the Kairos course is being fulfilled and to be part of a historical moment, as I have the privilege of being the first cross-cultural worker my local church sends out and the first worker from our denomination.

The official board of my local church approved the exploratory trip, and the church will cover my airfare. After I return from the trip and close to my final departure, we will discuss the institutional agreement between the agency, the church, and me.

If the above was not enough, and without seeking or asking for it, we met in the Dominican Republic with Brother Joaquin Vargas, who was there on vacation. He is the founder of Global One80, an organization with whom we have a strategic alliance. He is excited to see another potential missionary to India. He has told us that he is also planning to visit India this year to visit the agency’s missionaries.

God is opening doors already, and I have not even started to promote our ministry. I am excited to be part of history and am open to seeing God’s call on my life. I pray that through this first exploratory trip He will show me the next step.
