Changing Lives Who Will Change Nations

People ask us what is our main job or ministry on the mission field. My answer, developing leaders. Training up the next generation of missionaries.

Last week we had an incredible opportunity to train twenty one Filipino missionaries.

In order to become a full-time missionary with our agency, you must first complete Missionary Preparation Orientation at the Go To Nations world headquarters in Jacksonville, FL. Chris and I completed this training back in 2003.

This week Go To Nations held their first ever Missionary Preparation Orientation outside of their world headquarters, actually their first ever orientation outside of the United States. At the Sonshine Center, here in Iloilo, we held Missionary (Affiliate) Preparation Orientation with twenty one candidates.

Cities, regions, nations and continents were represented by this class. I believe history was made this week. I also believe that this will be the first of many such missionary trainings to come.

For decades missionary work has been poured into the Philippines. Now I see God is getting a return on that investment with Filipinos becoming full time missionaries to other nations.
