In November, I traveled to Kenya to attend two MentorLink events with dozens of international leaders from the MentorLink Movement. This week I’ll be sharing about the Eastern Africa Gathering.
Leaders from 12 African nations in Eastern Africa gathered Nov. 12-15 to deepen their understanding of developing Christlike leaders and become familiar with the tools available to them from MentorLink. Most had a working knowledge of our Passing It On training but were unaware of some other tools at their disposal. Days with Jesus was wildly received, and a number wanted Days in their own language.
One brother ministers among 300k refugees from South Sudan, located in a camp in Uganda. He recently started 200 Discover Bible Study groups in this camp but is hampered because most don’t know how to read. When he saw Days with Jesus, he immediately pounced on me to get DWJ translated so he could share it in the refugee camp.
There were 35 of us in this Eastern Africa Gathering. The program and conference were organized by Africans. I can assure you that the MentorLink movement in Africa is led by some highly gifted and spiritually mature leaders who have a passion to develop leaders who lead like Jesus throughout the African continent. To God be all the glory!
Would you pray with me for each of the 35 people who attended? Thank the Lord for each person and his/her heart to lead like Jesus. Each one of these men and women is wholeheartedly answering the call to make disciples (Matt. 28:16-20). And pray for the continued advancement of His Kingdom throughout Africa.
What a joy it was to be with my African brothers and sisters!
