“Look at the nations and be utterly amazed! For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe!” – Habakkuk 1:5

Friends, it is no secret that opposition to the gospel is rising around the world. However, in the midst of hardships and challenges, we cling to this unchanging truth: The Light of the World has come! The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness HAS NOT overcome it. The gospel is still GOOD NEWS!

In 2018, we have seen compelling evidence of how HOPE IS RISING in the hearts of God’s people around the world. The following Year in Review highlights this evidence – these are real numbers attached to real people who have committed to doing Kingdom work in their nations. We invite you to study these numbers and celebrate with us - to God be the glory, great things HE has done!
