Everyone loves it when a plan comes together. Your ministry through globalLead is designed to focus on ministering, mentoring, and multiplying. Here are some exciting things God made happen recently in Kenya and India through globalLead.
As I am writing this update, I am looking forward to meeting with Festus Omoto. Festus is a dynamic missions pastor in Nairobi, Kenya. We will be talking about his personal plans for his own life and especially his personal soul care. In 2020, Festus was very close to quitting the ministry, but now he is revitalized and not retreating but being proactive in his plans for His life. Festus is one of the more than 1700 leaders that you have impacted this year through globalLead. Not only is Festus being mentored through your globalLead ministry, but he is mentoring others also (Festus is in this photo in the gray sweatshirt in the back. He is part of a mentor group that includes Pastor Nick Korir, front right, long-time partner in globalLead).
globalLead has been actively serving in Nepal for over a decade and impacting other neighboring countries as well. However, since the pandemic, it has not been possible for the teams to travel outside the country. God always has a plan though.
At the beginning of COVID in 2020, our Nepal team trained leaders from the region virtually through Zoom. One of the participants was a volunteer pastor and jewelry store worker (Ser BK) who had moved from Nepal and now lives in Goa, India. Over this time, Ser BK and others went through all the levels of the globalLead trainings virtually. As he implemented the globalLead trainings, his small church has grown.
In August of 2021, they baptized 21 new believers, and they have opened 3 new church fellowships as church plants. He is now a full-time pastor, who is ministering, mentoring, and multiplying. He desires to reach out to other pastors and leaders in his region so he can host more globalLead trainings in 2022!
