FRUITFULNESS AND ABUNDANCE

2 CORINTHIANS 9:8 SAYS:

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

LET’S TALK ABOUT FRUITFULNESS AS THIS YEAR ENDS AND THE NEW ONE BEGINS.

WHAT IS FRUITFULNESS?

WHAT DO WE LEARN ABOUT GOD FROM THIS VERSE?

WHAT DO WE LEARN ABOUT PEOPLE?

WHAT DOES GOD WANT TO SAY TO US TODAY?

IN JANUARY OF THIS YEAR WE TOOK A TRIP TO SRI LANKA TO TRAIN DISCIPLE MAKERS.

JUST A FEW DAYS AFTER ARRIVING, RICK. HAD A HEART ATTACK AND NEEDED SURGERY.

THE CARDIOLOGIST HERE IN CHICAGO HAS CALLED IT A MIRACLE TWICE SINCE THE SURGERY WAS DONE . THE PART OF THE HEART THAT WAS BLOCKED 90% IS COMMONLY CALLED THE WIDOW MAKER BY CARDIOLOGISTS.

BUT GOD SPARED RICK’S LIFE AND WE WERE ABLE TO CONTINUE OUR TRIP AND DO THE TRAINING EVENTS WE HAD PLANNED.

THE LEADERS COMMITTED THEMSELVES TO MAKING DISCIPLE MAKERS, GOING OUT TO UNREACHED VILLAGES SENDING TEAMS TO FIND PERSONS OF PEACE AND ALSO REACHED OUT TO MANY PASTORS OF ALL DIFFERENT CHURCHES TO SHARE WITH THEM ABOUT MAKING DISCIPLE MAKERS.

SINCE THEN, THEY HAVE MET AT 5AM EVERY WEDNESDAY WITH OVER 20 PASTORS TO PRAY FOR THE LOST IN SRI LANKA TO KNOW JESUS.

2022 HAS BEEN OUR MOST FRUITFUL YEAR AS WE HAVE BEEN TRAINING DISCIPLE MAKERS AND CATALYTIC LEADERS WHO HAVE TEAMS OF PEOPLE TO SEND OUT TO REACH THE UNREACHED IN ALL DIFFERENT AREAS OF INDIA AND SRI LANKA.

WE HAVE BEEN COACHING PEOPLE INDIVIDUALLY, DOING TRAINING ON ZOOM AND THEN MEETING IN PERSON TO TRAIN LARGER NUMBERS OF LEADERS IN VARIOUS STATES IN INDIA AND SRI LANKA.

WE HAVE GOTTEN TO INFLUENCE HUNDREDS OF LEADERS THIS PAST YEAR WHICH HAS MADE THIS THE MOST FRUITFUL YEAR WE HAVE EVER HAD IN THE MINISTRY.

WE ARE HUMBLED BY GOD AND OVERJOYED TO SEE WHAT ALL HE HAS DONE AND LET US BE A PART OF IT.

SO AS WE LOOK FORWARD TO 2023, WE NEED TO SPEND MORE TIME IN PRAYER ASKING GOD WHAT HE DESIRES FOR US TO DO.

EVEN THOUGH RICK HAD HEART SURGERY IN JANUARY, WE WERE ABLE TO GO TO INDIA THREE TIMES THIS LAST YEAR. HIS HEART SHOWS NO SIGN OF DAMAGE ACCORDING TO THE DOCTORS.

WE ARE ALSO HELPING PEOPLE HERE IN THE USA TO LEARN ABOUT HOW TO HEAR GOD’S VOICE AND SHARE A VERY SIMPLE WAY TO HELP SEEKERS REACH THEIR FRIENDS.

OUR PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU ALL TO HAVE A VERY FRUITFUL AND ABUNDANT YEAR AS WE ASK GOD TO HELP US MAKE DISCIPLE MAKERS!

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. – Galatians 6:9

THIS IS OUR PRAYER FOR YOU ALL THIS NEXT YEAR! LET’S GO AND MAKE DISCIPLES!

GOD IS ABLE TO BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY! SO THAT IN ALL THINGS AT ALL TIMES, HAVING ALL THAT YOU NEED, YOU WILL ABOUND IN EVERY GOOD WORK. 2 CORINTHIANS 9:8 NIV
