We have worked hard, but at the end of the day, it was not our work, our methods, or our abilities. God provided all things, He led us to where He was at work, and He deserves all the credit. Thank you Jesus for your love and work in and through us! It is such a privilege to be a butler for Jesus, opening the door for others, and encouraging them to pay forward what was paid into them.

First Stream to the 4th Generation!
Jesus has used the Disciples at Fort Leonard Wood to break the 4th Generation barrier! We are praying we will see 30 such streams in our network in order to see 2020 groups and churches by the year 2020. Continue to pray through our vision of
1 - One Vision
2 - 2020 by 2020
3 - 30 streams of reproducing churches to the
4 - 4th generation
Pray, Pray, Pray, and Train, Train, Train!
Jesus is calling many of us to shift focus from college campuses and military bases to the harder fields inside U.S. and foreign cities.
These strong-holds will in part be taken using laborers pipelined in from fruitful military and collegiate ministries who then recruit, train, and mobilize local laborers who are already there.
Nehemiah and Aquilla & Priscilla stand alongside Jesus to show us how it's done.

I've been investing in Michael Noel for about three years since he's been at Fort Benning (I am not the first to invest in him by any stretch). Mike led Sean Minton to Christ a few months ago. Mike trained Sean to share the gospel and start a community with a worthy man. Sean has since led two men to Christ on Fort Benning (one with Mike's help): Mike Maldonado and Matt Arnold. Sean has also started a community with those new disciples and is leading them. Pray for men like Sean and for the men he is discipling that we'd see the next generation formed through Mike and Matt!

Patrick helped start a Bible Study on the boxing team that AK started attending, and through which he dedicated his life to following Christ. Over winter break AK went home to share his faith in Jesus with his immediate family. AK’s father is a devout Muslim man in Kazakhstan, and his mother is Buddhist. We spent significant time praying with and for AK through the month of December. As AK humbly shared about his decision to follow Christ, his father, while not yet believing himself, accepted his Son and respected his decision. On 27 December AK’s father celebrated Christmas with the family for the first time ever to recognize AK’s decision to follow Jesus. We pray that his family would come to Jesus through AK.

Two Minute Testimony and Gospel of the Kingdom

Thoughts from my time with Jesus from Luke 8:15 But the ones that fell on the good ground are those, who having heard the word with a noble and good heart, keep it and bear fruit with patience Luke does not mention how much fruit the good soil person bears. Rather, He focuses on the principles of bearing fruit
1.) Keeping the Word-abiding in Jesus (John 15:1-17)
2.) Patiently-walking in the Holy Spirit (Eph. 5:16-26)
