Have you ever wondered how we select the areas we send distribution teams to once we arrive in a city like Danli?
As we partner with local churches and pastors, we receive insight into which areas represent the greatest need. Then these areas are prayed for and together with the pastors we develop a schedule.
In Acts 1:8 we read, “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Sometimes we joke that we haven’t been to the end of the earth but we could see it from where we were.
What does it take to be a witness for Christ? Simply being obedient to the Holy Spirit.
For those of you who are called to be feet on the ground, if the ends of the earth is your target then we have some locations that will interest you. We seek out those locations where many never travel to serve due to the distance or other physical obstacles. We have driven many miles before exiting our vehicles to board small boats for an hour long trip to a remote village of people. We have driven into the mountains where the road comes to and end before treking the last mile or two on foot. Yes we also go to the barrios of some of the larger cities.
But the ministry is more than just feet on the ground. The Holy Spirit has directed many to be intercessors by continually covering LOLI with prayer. Others have been lead to support the work through financial gifts. No matter how you are directed by the Holy Spirit to get involved the key is just to be obedient.
