In the heart of its cities, South Brazil appears to be booming. But underneath the facade of success looms the fractured foundation of a divided nation...
About a month ago I packed up my small carry-on suitcase, made a long list of all the items our crazy family schedule holds these days, kissed my husband and five kids goodbye, and hopped on a plane to go encourage and equip the beautiful women leaders of Punjab State, North India. Our Global Advance Ambassador team had one unified, passionate desire...
Off a dusty road in the State of Chattisgarh India near the Kings mango grove, our Global Advance team convened 341 pastors and leaders, both men and women, for training. These indigenous leaders from multiple states traveled for days to receive training and encouragement for church planting and raising up modern day Esthers...

The pot on the fire contained a simple meal; the work of her aging hands would feed hundreds of hungry children that day who might not otherwise have access to food. Tucked away in a dark corner she faithfully tended to her post, pausing frequently to wipe her sweaty brow with the edge of her skirt.
They came, and didn't stop coming.
Some from across town, and others on buses and planes that traveled for hours and hours across borders in the blazing sun. Hundreds of women from Nicaragua and beyond gathered together under one roof to worship and be filled with life-giving truths breathed straight from God through his Word. This is just a glimpse of what Global Advance does all around the world.
