Summer 2018 Global Advance Newsletter

F ROM T H E PRESIDENT

Dear Friends and Partners, I have been thinking lately about the power of seeds. The old saying rings true that you can count the number of seeds in an apple, but you never know how many apples are in a seed! Since the beginning, Global Advance has been a seed planting ministry. Hundreds of churches have been planted, and thousands of people have come to Christ in the former Soviet states because of seeds sown in the 1990s. Last week we heard a report from pastors in Senegal; “Tell Global Advance that the churches planted in the past 12 years were a result of God’s Spirit awakening us at the Frontline Pastors Conferences!” I think about a letter we received from a native missionary in India where he stated, “I still remember hearing Dr. David Shibley preach when I was a young man. The message changed my life, and I have been planting new churches and sending missionaries to the unreached ever since.” Vivian, a businesswoman from Vietnam, shared with me, “Global Advance was the seed for me to engage in kingdom business.” Today she owns and operates a major hotel resort and uses her influence to point others to Christ. Many of you reading this newsletter have planted seeds in God’s Kingdom by supporting Global Advance. I want you to know your prayers and financial gifts are making a profound difference throughout the world. One of the most strategic investments we can make in furthering the Gospel’s impact to the ends of the earth is to sow into frontline indigenous leaders. This year we are partnering with the global Church in 35 nations. We are a junior partner, empowering indigenous leaders to do the work of the kingdom. Thank you for helping us plant seeds worldwide. May God’s Spirit water and nurture those seeds for the glory of His Son. Gratefully commissioned,

Jonathan Shibley
