GLOBAL CHURCH GROWTH
2015 Volume 20 Edition 2
Global Church Growth celebrates
20 years in international missions.
How do we
decide on where to work?
policy of our mission is to only go where
we are invited. I will share the Church
Growth System with anyone who will listen. If a person, native, mission, or
church is interested in being trained,
then I will go. If they are in another country or language group, then they must be interested in
translating the first two books in the system. I do not ask anyone to translate my material unless there is interest
first. They must come to me, and they must be a part of getting it translated.
They must be touched by God to want this
material for the work in their culture. This way, I do not go before the Lord, go
where I want to, or translate what I want to. When do we go? When the
first two books and leader’s guide are translated
in the native language, we will then make
our first trip to do training. Once the
translations are finished, we then are open to work with anyone in that
I am happy to announce that the first two books (Most
Precious thing in the world, and Ten Steps to Growth) are now translated into Burmese. Having the finished
translations now opens a new field in Myanmar (formerly Burma). If you,
or anyone you support, work in Myanmar,
please contact us about how we can help them, or you in your ministry. Other
languages that are ready to use with the first two books include Spanish, Polish, Portuguese, and Malamyam
languages translated, or in the process!
Precious in the world is now finished in French, and Ten Steps to Spiritual Growth
is available in Nepalese. Creole, Italian, Russian, three other Indian languages are in the process of being translated.
Most publishers and writers make money from their
publications. That is usually true when someone buys an English book. However,
when I produce, by hand, most of the foreign books there is no money
available unless someone donates. Almost all countries I work with expect to be
given the books, or cannot afford to pay for them. Since there are fourteen
different languages (at this time), and five
books per language, you can see there is a great need for funding. If you have
any missionaries or interest in any of the languages listed above, please consider adopting a language to
help us print and distribute this material so we can make disciples around the
world. Many are being converted and discipled using these books, so please help
us save more.
as we make plans for future trips to:
Jamaica, Myanmar, India, Cuba, Honduras, and Nepal
