Although many in the USA are now moving about more freely, many of our friends around the globe are still limited from traveling any distance from their home. Others are limited by a daily curfew. With all of these trying circumstances, it is easy to retreat rather than move forward. We are reminded that the Apostle Paul faced restrictions in his life as a minister, yet the Gospel was still boldly proclaimed. Paul wrote the following to the believers in Rome, and later in his life he would be in prison and on house arrest in Rome. Being restricted from traveling is nothing new in Christianity.
“For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
Nothing can separate you or me or our ministry leaders around the globe from the love of Christ. In addition, nothing can lock down God’s sovereign and powerful Gospel from going out to those in need. Your ministry in globalLead is helping leaders be reminded of God’s inseparable love during these difficult times, so they can fully serve others. God has been working over the past few months in your ministry with globalLead in the following ways: online ministry to 162 leaders from 11 countries; training via text messages; training in a restricted country during persecution and Covid-19.
