However, there’s another story we must share. Speaking of Jesus, “the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.” Network Beyond teams work in these places of need and some 24 countries around the world. Your prayers and support make it possible.
What does Jesus’ light look like in the darkness? Recently, twenty-two people in a Horn of Africa site professed Jesus as Savior, with many others hearing the message and receiving needed health care. Venezuelan Christians join many others as graduates of our ITI training. Asian children and young women rescued from brothels are loved and cared for in safe places. Meanwhile hundreds of Middle Eastern children from another religion regularly hear about Jesus. In fact, a prominent Imam now trains others in the way of Jesus. There are Sudanese trained by Egyptian and courageous Iraqi pastors—both “firsts” in Network Beyond (NB) ministry, as the work expands. As you read this, other NB teams work in Latin America, Africa, and Asia.
We hope this encourages and calls you to pray. We need you! Network Beyond leadership desires to enter through doors God has opened by expanding our network of intercessors, givers, churches, and participants. It is exciting and daunting. Here is one example of how you can make a difference: for $5000, the ITI can be offered to pastors in one of the countries mentioned or to a new people group requesting our training. We are grateful!
