We have been here in South Africa for over 3 months now. When we arrived I really sought the Lord for his will for me during this season. I asked him what he wanted to do IN me, TO me and THROUGH me so that I could be obedient to Him. I heard several things from the Lord. One of them was that I was to actively disciple several young men. It may surprise you to hear this, but as a Pastor I never really discipled people. Maybe a few folks in our Small Group, but not much more than that. I would meet with people once, maybe twice and that was it. That aint discipleship.
Since beginning ministry here I have formed 3 significant discipling relationships. I meet with each of them weekly for mentoring, accountability, teaching, and to share what we are learning in Scripture. It has been enormously life-giving. All 3 of the guys that I am discipling are also discipling others. This is what it is all about. We must make disciples who make disciples who make disciples.
Pray with me for Siba, Quaid and John. I am excited about the 3 disciples God has brought into my life in our first 3 months here. Excited to meet more people of peace who are spiritually hungry.
