Discipling The Nations!
Written by a Favor Field Team Leader
MAY 14, 2014
Dear <<First Name>>,
We are so grateful to God that we are part of what He is doing in this generation. As spiritual darkness increases, our role is to shine the light of God's Word into its midst. We as the body of Christ have a big role to play, doing things we may never have dreamed! Now is the only time we have to rise up and bring transformation and change in our world!
Portable Bible School Graduation Under The Mango Tree
The Great Commission still stands waiting for us to obey. Jesus has never said, “You have done enough, now you can rest and wait for the reward.” Daily, the voice keeps crying out loud and clear, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” Isaiah 6:8. He does not beg, but commands, “Go and make Disciples of all Nations!” Mathew 28:19
Attendees Hungry For The Word
Until the whole world hears the Word of Life, we have no permanent city on earth in which to relax and rest while souls perish and new converts are deceived through lack of discipleship or brainwashed through cultish teaching. The Gospel isn't complete until we have discipled and made ready a mature church, rooted in the Word, and carrying out the will of God on earth in the power of the Holy Spirit to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Each one of us has a role to play, regardless of how small that role may be. We don’t need to be super-evangelists or apostles or great prophets in order to fulfill the call of God upon our life.
In whatever we plan and do, we have the obligation to do it – not to man – but wholeheartedly as unto the Lord. To serve Him is both our blessed opportunity and solemn responsibility. No service rendered to God out of reluctance will ever touch His heart. As long as we wake up and find ourselves alive, we have the privilege to worship Him with our service.
We are so happy to say “thank you” for partnering with us in this great and noble task. We know we can't work alone, but as a team we can achieve much when everyone plays their role.
Discipleship In Action
We are bringing leadership training and discipleship into new local areas and look forward to expanding it beyond the border of Uganda where we have been serving before; places like South Sudan, Congo, Rwanda, and Burundi.
Portable Bible School Graduates
Our greatest joy is to see trained church leaders returning to their communities empowered and equipped for effective service. We see them go with confidence and determination to serve our King. Leaders from all denominations attended one of our training centers in Dokolo, Northern Uganda, and we have heard many of their testimonies about what the Lord is doing in their lives and ministry as a result of the training they are receiving.
A student once said, “We are going to mobilize all our church leaders to come for this training. I didn’t know how much we were missing and what blunders we have been making in the ministry until I came for this equipping. May the Lord have mercy upon us for the ignorance that has caused much destruction and splits in the body of Christ and the backsliding of many members of the church!”
The veil is being rolled away, so they can see clearly. God is taking them to another level of service in holiness, purity, commitment, and understanding of God’s perfect desire and will for each of them.
Students Listening With Open Hearts
Thank you for equipping us, empowering us through your love and prayers, and sending us to send others. Though laborers are few, the Lord Jesus told us in John 4 to “pray to the Lord of the harvest to send more laborers.” For that we pray.

Thank you for laboring with us for the harvest in Uganda, and Northern Africa,

Testimony from a Pastor:
This teaching is reviving me. I was discouraged and sick, but I thank God for bringing this training. The first day happiness came back into my heart as my faith grew, and I was reminded again of the promises from the Lord. The sessions stirred up my heart to pray without ceasing. Even through the group discussions, the Lord healed me. Again there is revival in the Church. I have come to understand praise and worship and desire to walk in it for the rest of my life. Surely I am whom God says I am, and I have what God says I have.
Another Student Testified:
I was asking God to do something good in my life and to heal my heart from the discouragement I had been having for weeks. I was asking myself if I had ever seen anything good in our community, but thanks be to God, He brought this discipleship and training to us, and it IS very good. It is blessing and changing my life and helping me to see the future God has for me. I now see myself as a champion in the Kingdom of God and as His ambassador on earth. This training is a solution to my prayers and to this world.
Testimony from another Pastor:
Because of this training, I have developed a deep desire in my heart to read the Word of God. I started reading the New Testament after watching the teaching on New Testament survey and now even going through the Old Testament is inspiring to me. I had been ignorant in many areas of my life about what the Bible says about the Holy Spirit, authority, angels, and other topics. I thank God for this course on truth, because my eyes have become opened. I now talk to the Holy Spirit like a person. There are “small” sins in my life that I could do and feel comfortable about, but now I can hear His voice convicting me. It’s like all of a sudden my conscience has been awakened. Also, my faith has increased in God through hearing His Word being spoken directly to me.
Testimony from another Pastor:
Through these lessons, I have learned so much and my faith has been lifted from where it was. At one point, I would pray for the sick and see miracles, but somewhere, somehow, my faith had grown cold. After attending the training, specifically “Foundation of Faith”, my own faith was awakened. I am blessed to be part of this equipping because I have come to personally learn more about the Trinity, deeper than before. Through these sessions, I came to learn that the gifts of the Holy Spirit operate by faith in our lives. I have learned about the power of praise and worship in a new way, and how it can affect change in my own life.
