"To belong to Jesus is to embrace the nations with Him." — John Piper
We are so thankful for you. You have been an instrument of God's faithfulness to us through your faithful prayers and generous giving.
A new year has begun! Many challenges of the past year remain, but new opportunities to engage our mission--Equipping a New Generation--are emerging.
Below see some a testimony, prayer requests, a video update, and message David shared with the Global University staff in chapel on January 20th. I hope you will find it a blessing during this unusual season.
Thank you for your faithful prayers and financial support!

The following message was recently received from a Global University Network Office representative in a highly sensitive country:
1) There is a gentleman who lives in country and he and his wife had adopted a child with special needs. The government found out that they were Christians and said “We would rather the child die than be raised by Christians.” They are now in hiding but the gentleman says that our GU courses are his lifeline to faith and that they have been a huge encouragement to him and his wife.
2) There was a young 19-year-old man who recently converted and is taking courses with GU (Christian Life/Service). He has evangelized almost an entire village at one point this year with courage and boldness. While he was there, a young child who had never walked was brought to him, he prayed, and the child was healed and immediately began to walk.
To God be the glory!

Enjoy this chapel service at Global University recorded on Facebook Live on January 20, 2021. The message begins about 13:30.
Please pray for:
Global University's ministry partners that have been severely limited by the COVID-19 pandemic, some have been stricken themselves.
Despite the pandemic, the planting of hundreds of house churches continues in one sensitive country. Pastors need access to training.
Pastors and church leaders in the USA that are "sharpening their tools" through Global University; may the Lord bring fruit to their faithful ministry.
