THE GAMBIA REPORT

10 were baptized in The Gambia; 5 of which were Trinitarian pastors

This baptism occurred after just a few weeks of focused prayer by those who picked up prayer cards at NAYC, and those who attended GoNEXT Seminars in 2019, including the Illinois District Kids Campers who took part in a GoNEXT Kids Seminar. Let’s unite! Our prayers are working!

ERITREA REPORT

God gives direction

Within a few short hours after picking up a country prayer card for Eritrea at the Short-Term Missions booth during NAYC, Katie’s Uber driver gave her loads of information concerning how to pray for that nation. You see, he is a recent immigrant from that very nation. When Katie showed him the prayer card with his flag, he was visibly moved people are praying for his home country. Katie left amazed at God’s provision and precision.

Is NEXT STEPS your next right step?

I wasn’t confident in the giftings God has placed in me throughout my entire life. Now, I know, that as long as I am willing, He will use me in whatever capacity I make myself available to be used. I am in an “in-between” phase at the time being, but I am not afraid. Next Steps gave me direction in the fact that I can grow where God has planted me, and that He will place me in my “next step” in His perfect timing. I do not fear.

2018 Next Steps: Tanzania

I would recommend Next Steps to anyone interested in missions because it is a safe place to immerse yourself in a field without the fear of being left alone not knowing what to do. The team of mentors and friends you gain from the experience is invaluable.

I was abundantly blessed by this experience and I believe that greater things are in store for this program!
