Church growth depends on consistency, courage, and faithfulness. When God’s people persevere, miracles follow.
As I studied the Gospels, it became clear to me that Jesus understood well the principle of reaching the poor. He avoided the major cities, the rich, the famous, and the powerful, concentrating His ministry on the poor laboring class. If we reach the poor, we have touched the masses.
Since 1979, my team and I have ministered to people throughout Asia and Africa, and we have seen mighty miracles. Thousands of suffering and marginalized men and women have found hope in Jesus — often because we refused to give up, persevering in faith instead.
The Right Weapons
The battle against hunger and poverty is really a spiritual battle, not a physical or social one as secularists would have us believe. It is through the love of Christ that we will effectively win the war against disease, hunger, injustice, and poverty in Asia, America, and elsewhere around the world.
