Surprising? Yes. Because when God led us to launch an international biblical counseling training ministry 11 years ago we didn’t know how to do it or if anyone would support it!
In the meantime we’ve learned a lot – usually through mistakes – and have been amazed at the ways God has provided for us. So far this year our nine missionaries have served Christ in Ch*na, Thailand, Singapore, Philippines, Fiji, Belize, Guatemala, Ecuador, Egypt, Ukraine, Uganda, Russia, Japan, Germany, France, and Hungary. And there are more new countries scheduled in the second half of the year!
And the results? A pastor wrote: “If there’s a country that needs biblical counseling, it’s Uganda. I never knew counseling was pointing people to Christ!”
And one of our graduate students sent this note: “Thank you for your sacrificial commitment in making biblical counseling training available around the world! It has changed my life; I am a better woman, wife, mother and friend because of God’s truth working in me. I have a passion for God’s Word like never before. To God be the glory!”
The story of God’s work through OIC was just published this week as an interview that you can read by clicking on this link.
We are so very grateful for the goodness of God throughout these early years of the ministry of OIC.
