We’re part of something much bigger…
A team of US staff has just returned from Indonesia, where they were part of the third Congress of Nations. This triennial international meeting was attended by representatives of EE ministries from every continent. It was such an amazing experience to be part of this gathering of EE leaders, each speaking and worshiping in their own language, but all with a common purpose of glorifying God and working to see the Great Commission fulfilled!
President John Sorensen welcomes 15 new nations as members of the EE International Congress of Nations.
It’s easy to get so engrossed in our efforts to reach the lost in America that we forget we are part of something much bigger – the international effort of this great ministry to train men and women, boys and girls, all over the world, to bring the hope of Jesus to those living in darkness.
Your support of the EE USA ministry is making a difference in so many lives – I can’t thank you enough. As we equip people here, we see US churches sending strong leaders to other nations to help train their church leaders to equip their lay people. We’ll tell you more about mission trips in an upcoming newsletter, but we just wanted to share some of the photos from the Congress and let you know that our team is back home, safe and sound and re-energized to keep leading the way forward for the gospel! Thank you for praying for them.
