After completing our training of workers for Muslim ministry in Colombia, South America, earlier this year, Pablo declared, “I don’t care if anyone goes with me, I’m going!” Moved to tears by the Spirit’s calling, Pablo was willing to say, “Yes, Lord!”
 
Because of the many people like Pablo, who are answering the call, more Muslims are having the opportunity to hear the good news! Global Initiative is being used by the Lord to see people like Pablo called to this ministry in Colombia as well as Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, El Salvador and Peru!
Papua New Guinea
As Islam spreads throughout the world, so does the opportunity for the Church to arise and declare the good news! Who would have thought there would be a Muslim presence in Papua New Guinea? We were privileged this year to equip the church there to engage Muslims with the gospel!
The students were shocked when they learned it wasn’t just foreigners going to the mosque; people from their own country were going too. They were reminded of the spiritual battle we are all engaged in to see Muslims come to faith in Christ. Now the church in Papua New Guinea is seeking to reach the Muslims in their nation.
Continental Theological Seminary (CTS), Brussels, Belgium
Even before the migration of many refugees this year, a strong Muslim population already existed in a number of Western European countries. Global Initiative in collaboration with CTS is now offering courses to students on how to engage Muslims with the gospel.
Seeing students putting knowledge into practice is exciting. We received a report about one CTS student that has already begun an outreach to a Muslim community, and several Muslims have received Christ and been baptized.
Romania
Global Initiative’s partnership with the national church in Romania has continued to see workers sent to the Muslim world. Several years ago the church in Romania caught the vision to be a “sending” church instead of a “receiving” church. Romanian missionaries are now serving in several African Muslim-majority nations and among Muslims in Central Asia, China, and India.  
The Holy Spirit has used the equipping by Global Initiative to spark their vision to reach Muslims. We have the privilege to return to Romania each year to train and prepare more future missionaries.
We rejoice this Christmas, knowing that many Muslims are celebrating Christmas for the first time, not with the commercialism of Christmas but with the freedom that comes by accepting the Prince of Peace as their Lord and Savior.

On behalf of our team, thank you for your commitment to see Muslims reached everywhere. We pray that 2016 will be one filled with His blessings upon you and your family!
Partner with the Team for 2016!
Partnering with you to reach Muslims,
Mark Brink
International Director
