Africa – The harvest of souls – November 3, 2020
We are so encouraged and grateful for the testimonies from the October outreaches in Burundi. 408 new believers accepted Jesus and 35 have already been baptized. We are praying that they will quickly be taught to be true disciples of Jesus Christ and that many new souls will come into the kingdom through their testimonies.
Jesus said, “But the one who received the seed that fell on good soil is the man who hears and understands it. He produces a crop, yielding a hundred, sixty or thirty times what was sown.” (Matthew 13:23)
That promise would yield either 40,800 or 24,480 or 12,240 new souls.
That is why “teaching them to obey everything Jesus has commanded” is so important. (Matthew 28:20)
There is no crusade or outreach with any more power than one sinner that is made a disciple by repenting and being baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and taught to obey everything that Jesus has commanded. They now have full access to all the authority in heaven and on earth through Jesus Christ.
Jesus said, “And the gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
