Partnering with indigenous national leaders overseas has always been the priority of JL & Patt's ministry. It is through these strategic relationships that they are able to leverage their Kingdom impact in these countries. Here we share updates, newsletters and pictures from those partners so you can hear from them personally and more knowledgeably pray for their ministries

3. EOC leaders Training in the past three month I involved in giving training for 94 EOC minister on biblical knowledge and responsibility of a minister.
In the past three month I preached from 12 Sunday 9 of them in different church.
The respond of the Training
The church leaders after I gave the training and wash their feet everyone is crying and confessing. They wrote to me that they have done God’s work as
a. They like not what God like
b. They used it to get authority and benefit from that, so they decided to change this direction to be servant leaders
c. They were thinking that leadership is as a position above the other but they understood now the church leadership is upside- down serving others.
d. They say that they understood In the past serving is to be on position but now from the training they understood that serving is benefiting others.
e. They decided on themselves to shift from where they are now and what they are doing to where God wants them and to do what God wants them to do.
This year is hard working time but God’s grace was with me.
The new direction International gave me 10 cycles for missionaries who are working in a Hot climate area. So I distributed that to the following area

23 missionaries who are working With KHC churches and other received financial support from Korean church for the past one year. From the 23 missionaries 14 of them were from KHC . as followes
These missionaries were supported by Korean church our SIM office has done coordination work for the open door God gave to the church.
One American family was supporting 3 Evangelists who are working in borena area. The supporting money was coming through one of SIM missionary (Denes ) when she left the area our office to action and communicated with the supporters and they send chaqu to KHC through our office and we give to KHC and send receipts to the donors. This is also the other work we coordinate in our SIM office.
