"For I am confident that He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." -Philippians 1:6
Al has worked with World Partners since 1992; he served in Southeast Asia for almost ten years. There he learned about poverty, equipping indigenous church planters to serve the unreached, and the need for a locally sustainable ministry model. Since 2002, Al has been equipping church planters to minister through business. In 2013, his focus shifted to multiplying local trainers, annually they now equip hundreds of church planters to do business among least reached peoples. Through them, God is multiplying new believers, baptisms, disciples, and churches.
An Ethiopian proverb says, "Little by little the egg walks." God is at work in Al's life, teaching and equipping for multiplication. Please pray for the next step: Regional leaders gifted and called to equip local trainers. Continue praying for the local trainers as they equip and coach; also, for church planters as they connect, serve, and share with their business networks. The vision is for every person to have an opportunity to choose and follow Christ.
