“In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.” – 1 Peter 1:6-7
You are asking yourself, how much longer will this lock down last?📷Yes. It does seem like a long time for us all to be “shut down.”
Even though most of us have not been affected by the virus through sickness or death we have all been affected by the lockdown. We at Warriors for Christ have been in lockdown for 2 months, but are able to minister in new ways through the internet.How are you doing in this Corona crisis? Can we pray for you and your family? Please email your requests and we will post them on the Warriors for Christ Facebook page.We have temporarily had to put off traveling to Arizona and Indian Bible College, but the Lord has opened other doors of ministry for Warriors for Christ. With so many staying home we have new ministry possibilities to reach so many through Warriors for Christ Online.God has gives Warriors for Christ both challenges, but also new opportunities. We are adding new videos for our WFC Online channel on YouTube; on the playlist Light for the Path. Our purpose is to both minister and instruct. Also we are now “live streaming” them on Facebook. In this way we can answer questions bringing the Word in a personal way.📷We are continuing to add Google slides (like PowerPoint) for each lesson to help make our discipleship course easy to use – another tool for Pastors and Native leaders. We are also adding more videos to YouTube, on Walking the New Path discipleship course. Each lesson will have four parts (videos), again another tool for training and teaching.
