God is Using Awana in Latin America, South Asia, and AfricaWe just returned from San Jose Do Rio Preto, Brazil where our global leadership met to discuss and plan for training and equipping leaders to reach kids through the ministry of Awana International, the global arm of Awana.
Ministry updates from Latin America, South Asia and Africa gave testimony of how God is using Awana to reach tens of thousands of children and youth with the gospel message and a deeper biblical understanding. Much of our time was spent discussing our Leader-Based Strategy (LBS) ministry that has been sweeping across several countries training leaders by the 100's. LBS focuses on training and equipping leaders to go back to their local church and train others to reach kids.
Ministry multiplication of leaders and children is the core to the new model. Please see some recent pictures from Nepal that were reported to us at the meeting in Brazil.
The leadership meetings reminded me once more of the uniquely gifted and talented leaders that God has blessed Awana with around the world. There are so many challenges to face by each of these leaders yet they are totally committed to the calling in their lives and are carrying the
light to their continents and countries as ambassadors of the King.
Please remember to pray for Awana International in the days ahead. These are days of great opportunity and great challenge.
