How many people do you speak to each day? Depending on your personality, 5 or 50. How many of those conversations are deep, growing relationships? Two, three … none? With the restrictions of COVID during the last two years, many saw their worlds shrink to the size of their homes. Others seized the opportunity to multiply their impact through online resources.
One Challenge workers Tim and Annette are global nomads, serving anywhere and everywhere they are asked, often working from local coffee shops. They train, mentor, and develop ministry materials for leaders who disciple younger generations. When COVID-19 slowed down their chats at coffee shops and in-person trainings, Tim and Annette stepped up their online connections to continue to multiply their mentoring and training of youth leaders.
Isn’t it an amazing blessing how the technology of the internet multiplied their training and discipling of leaders across the world, just when COVID seemed to be limiting connections?! God’s transforming love is multiplying as more people hear the good news, have access to training, and are given resources to share with others.
Highlights from Last Year
They designed and led internet-based training events … from an academic youth ministry program in Uruguay to a Kuna Indian youth leadership conference in Panama.
Together with their web team, they created and published seven group Bible studies, 292 articles and devotionals, 240 social media posts, and 32 new training videos!
On Monday evenings, 15 Spanish-speaking key leaders from nations around the world (previously trained by Tim and Annette and not able to travel because of COVID restrictions) met via Zoom for a time of fellowship, prayer, and mutual encouragement.
Thank you for helping multiply the impact of Tim and Annette and other OC workers through your prayer and support.
