In 2014 alone, we saw 6,751 new churches planted. The work that our church planters are doing is impacting the lives of more than 670,000 people! With their faithful dedication, our church planters are bringing eternal hope to the unreached people in their communities.


Cuba is seeing a spiritual revival like never before. Countless people are coming to know Christ, thanks to the devoted church planters and the transformative power of Christ. Many of our church planters specifically work through developing programs such as sports ministries, Sunday Schools, children’s programs, and more. They are bold in their work and commit to personal evangelism and crusades in their communities. The impact these programs are having is truly life changing.

“The communities have been impacted by the power of the Gospel. Many souls have repented and have asked Jesus into their life as their Lord and Savior,” Roberto, one of our Cuban church planters said.


In a nation where hundreds of thousands of religions are practiced, the Lord is moving, and the people continue to grow more receptive to the truth found in the Gospel. Our church planters are committed to training leaders in the church as they to continue to expand their ministries and spread the Gospel throughout the cities and remote villages. Below is a recent testimony from the field:

Menka lives with his two sons in Bhadohi, India. Arvind, one of his sons, was extremely ill and their family did not have enough money to provide him with the medical treatment he needed. Menka was worried his son would not survive this severe illness and began to lose hope . . . desperate for help. 

One day, they met a local church planter who prayed with them for Arvind’s healing. This church planter invited the family to attend church, and through continued prayer, Arvind was healed! Menka and his family now attend church regularly, and he uses this powerful testimony to share with others about the love of Jesus Christ.


Despite facing severe persecution, church planters in China work tirelessly to bring the hope of the Gospel to their communities. Although the risk for imprisonment is high, these congregations are so hungry for the Word of God, they meet secretly in private homes as they cannot openly worship Christ. The church planters also provide Bible training in an effort to prepare leaders in the church to plant new churches, ultimately expanding the Kingdom of God in China.


One of our partners in Nepal recently shared a testimony of how the Lord is impacting people in this nation with the Gospel even through tragedy:

A Christian couple who converted from Buddhism suffered a loss when the wife, Shyam, fell from a tree. She was rushed to the hospital, but the treatment she needed was too expensive than what the family could afford, so she was brought back to the village and passed away soon after.

Though Shyam’s death was tragic, the Lord used this circumstance to bring others to Him. They held a Christian funeral, which was the first one these villagers had ever experienced. Approximately 150 people attended and heard the Gospel message for the first time. God was able to turn this tragedy into an opportunity to spread hope in this village.

There are so many stories, just like these, that are made possible through the faithful work of these committed church planters and your continued support. Thank you for your eternal investment in spreading the Gospel throughout the nations.
