Dear Sublette Family,
As we have endeavored to implement a Kingdom-building media strategy here, we have learned much--a lot through our own trial and error but most recently through the help of others who have walked this path before us. There is currently a team finding great success and building momentum in finding people who are seeking for truth online and discipling them into a relationship with Jesus. Like most, we think there's not much sense in reinventing the wheel! So at the end of the year, when they invited us to come and learn how their operation works as well as offering us some unique tools, we very gratefully said, "YES!" We cannot overstate the significance of this partnership!
It was perfect timing. As we were getting a bit discouraged at the thought of having to come up with all the necessary pieces to implement a successful media strategy, this team open-handedly passed on any and every thing they have worked on. Their YEARS of hard work and trial and error, longs hours away from family, and tens of thousands of dollars in developing the software and websites--gifted. With nothing asked in return accept that we open-handedly share with others whom we come across who are trying to do the same thing. WOW. "Thank you" doesn't begin to cover it.
Since this fateful meeting, we have been busy here building partnerships around the country of like-minded workers and casting vision for what this might look like. God has been graciously opening doors and directing steps in this process. The first step was to continue to work on getting prayer coverage through media. As we cast the vision for getting prayer warriors to commit to praying in groups, the synergy between workers who don't normally have a chance to work together took off! Right now we have a coalition of workers here in country garnering support from ALL OVER THE WORLD to pray specifically for the next steps here. More about that in our next newsletter!
The next steps are to start sowing seed online through Facebook and other avenues to seek out those that God is preparing! You may recall, in the past we put out some Gospel videos online and were overwhelmed by the amount of people who watched and engaged with the message. This time we want to see the engagement reach the next level: face-to-face meeting and discipleship to the Kingdom!
Please be praying that the Lord would be preparing hearts all over the nation and for our media content to be on target and find them. Then pray they are bold in seeking answers and brave in sharing contact information so that we can meet them face-to-face! Pray for those workers who we are partnering with around the country to be ready to receive the call to GO meet these seekers and for wisdom in discipleship. The Lord has been gracious in already answering with a handful of workers excited about the possibility of working with us! And most of all pray for your role in supporting this endeavor in PRAYER first and in finances second. Right now our focus is PRAYER since nothing happens without that. Find out more about how you can partner with us in seeing this movement start here! We couldn't do this without you!
Pray for dreams and visions! Always!
Pray for the translation projects! Continue to pray for the team as they work tirelessly to see the Old Testament completed! And continue to pray that the other books now on shelves around the country continue to sell and be used to bring people into the Kingdom. Pray for us as we continue to seek ways to use media to advertise their existence to get even more people reading and asking questions!
Pray for social and media efforts being made now in both prayer and outreach of the Gospel. We are looking for and finding partners who are helping us make the dream of a vast outreach a reality. Pray for active partners and solid steps forward in tackling this big endeavor! Sign up for the prayer movement online here if you haven't had a chance!
Pray for us as we continue support raising for the next haul of ministry ahead of us. So many exciting things to report! Pray we are clear in our communication and able to cast vision for this next season in BiH!
Pray for the spiritual attacks coming our way. We feel the breakthrough around the corner. Please continue to pray we can not just hold the ground but advance to see victory in this place!
Thank you and love you all! To 15,000 and beyond!
