Last year, I had the privilege and honor of mentoring a young man from New Zealand, Eli Savill, who was finishing up his education from Moody Bible College before returning to plant churches in his native land. Eight years ago, I was on New Zealand soil, praying with hundreds of others that God would raise up a new generation of young people to start the next great worldwide church planting movement.
Here’s a story from that time. I hope it does four things:
Causes your heart to sing with praise for a God who changes murders into good news prophets.
Stimulates you to know your God by passionately pursuing Him in the pages of His word.
Encourages you to live passionately for Him by being obedient to all His commands.
Causes you to pray for Eli and his young bride and son, all of them, answers to prayers from 8 years ago. (Link is below)
