RUNNING TOGETHER

Dear Friends,

Your prayers and support for the Liberia consultation trip were absolutely fantastic! Thank you so much. The fruit TJ Addington and I saw borne was truly amazing as we unwrapped truths from Scripture in how disciple-making movement leaders think and act.

Together with over 30 West African leaders, we prayed every morning and evening. As the week unfolded, the Lord graciously moved in all participants to commit to work together. Embracing “bride over brand,” they are earnestly seeking to see the Gospel come in a new way to West Africa through their mutual cooperation.  Collaborative partnership among church leaders is revolutionary among these humble servants. The African church’s propensity is to be hierarchical, territorial, and guard ministry rather than training others and giving ministry away.

The transparency, openness, and candid dialogue were described as “mind blowing” by Pastor David Kiamu.  The concept of using their gifts, skills, and ideas with clear boundaries in their contexts empowers healthy leaders as well as healthy churches. Such a “coalition of the willing” motivates BrookLink to be more
intentional in what we teach and to capture that teaching so that leaders can use these materials in their networks. Our target is more defined around movement leaders who in turn will develop groups of pastors to work alongside other movement for the spread of the gospel. This is a quantum leap in multiplication and
must be matched by our own ability to properly provide the leave-behind tools for these leaders and those they lead. Join me in praying for this coalition for the sake of the gospel in their parts of the world!

Pastor Bramuel Musya is grateful for collaboration among West African leaders.

Pastor George Ebenezer shares how running together makes us run far.

Your prayers are deeply appreciated as I travel to two countries in SE Asia next month. Joined by Ian Lawson and Keith Doyle, we will pour into seminarians and Bible college students, as well as equip pastors in 5 different cities. The potential of reaching 10,000 disciple-making movement leaders in this region is possible through your generosity and prayers, both of which we are exceedingly thankful.

Every blessing,

C. Lee Heyward, Founder & CEO
