A Good News Story

During Ron’s mentoring trip to Central Asia, staff gathered a group of university students who were curious about the Bible. Ron taught from the book of Daniel to the Indian students from Hindu, Muslim, and Christian communities. As a discipling model, he invited local student ministry workers to teach with him. Relating to Daniel in a foreign land, a few Indian students decided to follow Jesus. 

Pray that student seekers come to know Jesus! As new believers return to their home country, ask God to anoint them to be disciple-makers across society.
