EE Asia – Marked with God’s power and grace posted by jwatson on Mar 17, 2011

EE Vice President for Asia, Tom Mangham, works side-by-side with his wife, Barb, as they seek to lead the EE ministry across this prodigious continent. They coordinate a number of initiatives and assist a host of continental and regional directors in their passion to solidify EE and the Gospel across all of Asia.

Working in northeast Asia alone including countries like China, Japan, and Mongolia would be a life-long endeavor. Yet, they also help establish EE ministries across the many countries of south Asia, the Middle East, and southeast Asia.

One of their greatest hopes and prayers is to see countries with established EE ministries (multiplying nations) such as Malaysia, South Korea, Philippines, and India come alongside our growing nations like Japan, Vietnam, Jordan, and Cambodia to adopt and then help assist their growth.

Today, EE training events are taking place across the entire continent. During one training event in Battambang Province of Cambodia, 23 people representing seven different churches were equipped to train others. During Middle East EE training in Lebanon last month, 60 people were equipped and saw 18 professions of faith during practical witnessing experiences. Multiply those numbers in the many EE training events across Asia and the results are staggering.

Tom and Barb’s prayer is that their EE Asia team will experience continued filling and anointing of the Holy Spirit. They add, “Pray also our relationship with Jesus will deepen so our ministry will be marked with power and grace.”

NEPAL

In the life of Gopal
Gopal has been serving EE Asia in Nepal since 2002. He is now the National Director there. Nepal may be most famous for its Himalayan mountains including the tallest of them all, Everest. Gopal has helped EE reach great spiritual heights in Nepal. When EE is introduced in Nepal churches, the rate of implementation is very high, 60 percent.

Says Gopal, “I was born for EE and die for EE.” But Gopal finds the going rough due to a lack of funding. The Nepal churches interested in EE have little money. Gopal goes to train but does without meals, at times, so the money can go toward training and materials.

EE President John Sorensen sees this battle during his global travels. “We have absolutely no problem in getting people to go,” he says. “Our challenge is getting them the funds to send them.”

EE workers like Gopal cannot move forward without financial support, especially in countries like Nepal where, due to a lack of funds, “fundraising is impossible,” Gopal says.

IRAQ

Multiplication in the Middle East
EE spreads the Gospel in the Middle East, but perseverance, wisdom, and courage is needed for EE leaders there. They live as minorities with much discrimination, oppression, and even persecution. Yet, they are compelled by the Holy Spirit to press on.

no education, no problem
An un-educated woman attended EE training in Iraq. She was very excited about learning how to share her faith. Following the training, she went back to her church and trained another woman. These two women became very active in sharing their faith.

The second woman shared her faith in a nearby town with much success. To follow-up the new believers, she asked her pastor for a small bus to bring the new believers to church. Months later, they needed a larger bus to transport an even larger number of new believers.

This faithful witness was a blessing to church members and to those who made professions of faith in Christ. The results were amazing, especially when considering that her trainer was uneducated. When people are trained to be a trainer of other witnesses the impact for God’s Kingdom can be tremendous.

The Gospel moves forward in Iraq.

CHINA

EE making inroads in China
Here is one example of what EE is accomplishing across the vast continent of China. During one recent EE training event, 35 pastors/lay leaders were equipped. During practical witnessing experiences, the group saw 53 people make professions of faith in Christ.

EE’s China Initiative continues to bring collaboration among EE ministries, churches, organizations, and individuals to see that 10 million Chinese will profess Christ as Lord and Savior by 2020.

PAKISTAN

Only of God
EE VP for Asia, Tom Mangham, calls these photos “remarkable.” He says,

“They are not the clearest pictures, but they represent EE’s growth in Pakistan, a nation that is in turmoil. And yet, God is at work here through EE.”

Former EE VP for Asia, Gary Letchworth, and his wife, Joyce, continue to pour their lives into the EE training in Pakistan, and Tom is quick to point out their involvement. “They have been the ones who have sacrificed much to ensure EE is established in Pakistan.”
