These are Global Advance partners in India engaged in street evangelism and praying for those they meet. With Global Advance’s assistance, these missionaries hope to plant ten new churches in 2020 in this one region alone. Please continue to pray for our missionaries on the frontlines!
In Northern Nigeria, our team of National-led pastors is meeting to build effective strategies for reaching and planting God’s Church. The persecution of Christians is high both in the northern region and in the Middle Belt. They suffer from violence perpetrated by Islamic extremist groups, such as militant Fulani herdsmen and Boko Haram. Such violence often results in loss of life, physical injury, as well as loss of property. Please pray for our team in Nigeria, and for our ongoing work there.
Meet Pastor Simon, who is gearing up for our upcoming NextGen Conference. He serves as the Associate and Worship Pastor at a thriving local church in the Dallas metroplex.

Pictured are the new sewing machines purchased with your assistance.
We've received a wonderful report from our Rwanda team this week! Following our Global Advance training conference for women last November, women are now convening in the rural community on Saturdays to dive into deeper study using our leadership training resources. Not only does this follow-up provide much needed training; mentoring relationships and a deeper sense of community are being established as they study God's Word together.
It's farming season, so the women must be creative in finding a time to meet each week. Please PRAY as they commit to this life-changing time together!

"At this stage of life, my most fulfilling times of ministry are when I’m imparting my life into younger gospel proclaimers. Last summer, the David Shibley Institute (DSI) was launched in Dallas. I view this annual Institute as something of a capstone on the ministry God has privileged me to steward."

In a small town in rural Uganda, a GA missionary ministers to the needs of women in her community. One woman, one lesson at a time, a movement for Jesus Christ is steadily growing in this nation thanks to your support for Global Advance.
We’ve just returned from our South Asia national team gathering in Sri Lanka, and to say that our hearts are full would be an understatement. We’re so grateful for testimonies like this one, from a pastor who faces great challenges in a high-conflict region in North India:
“I was feeling quite burdened and heavy when I arrived, but during these days my burden has been lifted. I am empowered, refreshed, and motivated to move forward."
This past week in Sri Lanka we gathered key pastoral leaders to train and empower them to accomplish strategic plans to advance the gospel in the region. As we met together, we fixed our thoughts on the Word, opened our hearts to the Father, recommitted our hands to the work, and opened our lips in prayer and worship. What these pastors heard was this, “You are loved, and you are not alone in your work!” Your partnership with Global Advance is propelling these leaders back to their nations with encouraged hearts, anchored hope, and fresh vision to grow the Church in South Asia.
We have now returned from our 2020 SAARC Gathering. It was one of the most rewarding moments to meet and fellowship with top leaders from 7 nations in South Asia.
We had the privilege to sit with our Sri Lanka NextGen team to pray and collaborate for our upcoming NextGen training conference. We learned that there are no training resources focusing on the next generation in this country. Global Advance is honored to partner with the leaders here to bring the first ever training resources for the next generation this year!
Watch this short clip from the team as they share their vision to bring together young leaders from all 25 districts in Sri Lanka. We believe that God has uniquely fashioned the upcoming generation with gifts, talents, and abilities that the world needs. Partner with us as Global Advance champions the next generation of Great Commission leaders!
"All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you. For kingship belongs to the Lord, and he rules over the nations." - Psalm 22:27-28

The Sheb rebel forces in Myanmar have recently started recruiting their army by abducting young men and women and forcing them into their ranks. Thanks to partners of Global Advance and Alpha Relief, a safe house has been established in one of these rural areas. This past month, eleven young people took refuge in this safe house and will soon return to their homes when rebel forces retreat from the region. All of this, because of your support for our efforts!
"The Esther Initiative has just encouraged me so much. Going through the Esther Manual was so uplifting and encouraging in my personal life, which helped me commit to this national vision of taking the Esther Initiative to every church; to every woman... getting them mentored and coached with what the Word of God says. We were blessed to host the first Esther Initiative conference here in my church, and I was in tears as I was listening to the testimonies. Many of them left so encouraged, and they have been begging me; asking me when the next Esther Initiative program will be." - Esther Initiative National Coordinator in South Asia
