This month's theme for prayer and fasting is pride and humility..Pride. The enemy of, the opposite of humility. Pride is the root of much sin and it robs us of intimacy with the Lord and love of others. Scriptures have much to say about humility and pride. Perhaps this is because humility is so instrumental to our spiritual health as disciples of Jesus. Perhaps this is also because the Lord knew how much we can be prone to struggling with pride..As practitioners of disciple making movement principles, we must be especially on guard against pride, both personally and organizationally. Our enemy is so crafty at knowing how to lead us into the trap of pride. In Jeremiah 9:23, we are instructed to not boast in our wisdom. Ephesians 2:8-9 says, “For by such grace you have been saved through faith. This does not come from you; it is the gift of God and not the result of actions, to put a stop to all boasting.” .We must remain on guard to not let the tools we use, nor the principles we embrace and teach become idols. We must continue to ask the Lord to teach us and be eager to learn from others. Let’s remain vigilant to do all that we can to make healthy disciples and let God do what only He can. And then, let’s be sure to give Him the credit and praise He so rightly deserves and deflect any praise away from ourselves and to the Lord. Let us continually lay the Biglife flag down and raise up the banner of Jesus. hubs.la/Q01nPlG30 ... See MoreSee Less

Today, we want to focus prayer on Sao Tome & Principe..Roughly 83% of the population identify as Catholic, with only 4% as Evangelical. Sadly, the worship of ancestors is a common practice even among those who identify as Catholics. .To date, the Lord has not yet supplied a person of peace that would enable Biglife or any of our partnering organizations to provide disciple making movement training within this place.

Recently in a conversation with a friend, it came to mind that one of the hardest parts in disciple making is seeing actual multiplication.
When people ask what I do, I can answer with how I typically respond, "We teach people how to be the body of Christ in a simple way and...
If the lines above sound familiar, they should. Jesus said them. Well maybe he didn't say them exactly like that, but here is what he said, “Truly, Truly, I...

Stories From Around The World
In Cameroon — Africa, due to heavy rains, truck engines catching fire, unpassable roads... our Biglife team could not get to an unreached people group named the Bomwalis for 5 months. But as you can imagine, the Lord made a way and Biglife later learned the Bomwalis had actually evacuated because of flooding and had not been in their homes for 5 months, but had now returned! Not only did Biglife, and our partner, not give up for five months, but the irony is not lost on us that the Bomwalis would not have even been there had they arrived earlier. Is God in control? We know He is! Bomwali believers are now reaching other Bomwalis for Jesus Christ, for the first time ever!
In 2010, the last church building in Afghanistan was destroyed. There may have been as few as 400 Christians in the whole country. But since then, we’ve seen thousands of people give their lives to Jesus Christ in Afghanistan! How? Through the witness of some former Pashtun Muslims, that became fervent Christ followers. These leaders, and other courageous disciples are getting more and more Muslim Outreach Bibles into the hands of truth-seeking Afghans, despite the threat of Taliban and ISIS killers.
Vijaya Lama used to worship Hindu idols in Nepal. He was also a handy thief. But when he stole a Bible, that stolen Word changed his life. He surrendered to Jesus. Now Jesus is using Vijaya to steal hundreds of Hindus back from the grip of idolatry and sin. He travels from village to village in the mountain passes of Nepal, determined that even if the police come to arrest him for sharing the freedom of Jesus, he will not deny Christ. This video tells the story of how God’s Word is changing Nepal, one heart at a time.
Dieu Sanh, a rice farmer and a former Buddhist, has been sharing the love of Jesus with the people of Vietnam for many years. The authorities of Vietnam responded by imprisoning Dieu Sanh for many years. All he had to do to gain his freedom was to promise to stop telling people about Jesus. Though he missed his family, Dieu Sanh refused every time. “I will preach Jesus,” he said. This video shows how Jesus miraculously made a way for Dieu Sanh to go free, and then to go into all Vietnam.
