Hosborn has just completed training to start new churches, with a group of 25 others, “This training sparked something in me. It awakened a fire in me to reach my community for Christ!”
Your support was vital for their training and equipping them with Bibles for the task ahead.
After concluding the first in-class module that focuses on neighbourhood evangelism, Hosborn was so excited that he mobilized a team from his church. Together they embarked on a community campaign of house-to-house and open air evangelism to reach and disciple their community. The skills and resources from his training were working so well!
Then the pandemic restrictions halted ministry activities, and it felt like a huge setback. The same people that had responded so well became hostile as their hunger and frustration with the lockdown grew.
“We realized there was a need to change our strategy. So, instead of just a Bible and conversation, we started carrying small food packages that contained a Bible. As people realized that we understood their trials, they became welcoming again and we had opportunities to disciple families with the Gospel. God provided us with perseverance and insight to continue to serve our community. Food for the body, and food for the soul!” Hosborn says with a smile.
Hosborn requests prayer for himself and the team, for boldness and for open hearts, as they continue to reach into the community.
