"God works powerfully in the wake of intense suffering." Jim Shannon, CEO e3 Partners
At our latest e3 Town Hall, our CEO, Jim Shannon, shared some praises about what has been going on in the world. We often say "God is still moving" but to hear stories and see pictures is so incredible. Here are a few praises I wanted to share with you:
In Southern California, several hundred baptisms have taken place, many of those baptized have turned from hardcore witchcraft/occult to the Lord Jesus. They even brought their old occult books and had a book burning ceremony.
Two people groups in Northern India have reported people coming to Christ...these are the first known believers in both of these people groups.
Church planters in Southern India have been praying for and reached out to a unreached, unengaged people group in a Muslim village and a large majority of the village have put their faith in Christ. In one service, 180 baptisms took place.
God never, ever ceases to amaze me. In the midst of the worst worldwide crisis we have had in centuries, the church is growing rapidly. All these people, and so many others, are finding out that what they have long put their hope in, actually provides no hope at all. Then they met Jesus. They walked from death to life and their lives will never be the same because Jesus changes everything! What marvelous things for all of us to celebrate!
Everyone who believes in Him will not be put to shame - Ro 10:11
We are having an online Multiplying Movements Conference at the end of the month...Please join us!
What if the gospel of Jesus Christ went viral on the island of Ireland? What if, for the sake of His name, a movement of disciples of Jesus and healthy churches multiplied, until there was no place left where they could not be found? What would it take for this to happen? Join us over the course of the week, Monday 22nd March-Sunday 28th March as we consider whether this is something God may desire; using ordinary people and simple means to see it happen. Sign up for free and each day you will receive content to watch and read in your email inbox from individuals throughout Ireland and beyond. Then on Sunday 28th March we will be live on Facebook at 8pm with Steve Addison; author of books such as ‘Movements that Change the World’ and ‘What Jesus started’.
Thank you for praying for my parents. While we never know what to expect on this journey, because it changes daily, I do have some praises to share. The residents have been allowed to leave their rooms and interact with one another. My mother has been going down to trivia nights and has made a new friend! These two ladies now sit in the hall each day with each other. This has also been good for my dad to give him some much needed time alone but also to see mom doing better.
As always, thank you for your partnership and prayers. I truly appreciate each and every one of you.
