HM Belarus 2013...
"At the end of July, 36 leaders from 5 different countries gathered just outside Minsk, Belarus. The 8 Core Values of the International Leadership Institute's History Makers Journey were covered by teachers from Russia, Belarus, England, the UAE, and the US.
Prayers were prayed, plans were made, and vision was cast for impacting their spheres of influence for Christ. For many that will mean orphan care, for others, ministry to youth. For still others, church planting efforts await. In each leader a fire has been lit and a community has been formed which will pray, encourage, coach, remind, mentor, and then one day celebrate as these visions become reality.
This is the stuff that makes my palms sweat I tell you."
Nastia is a young Christian leader in her second year at the university. She has a passion for two things: orphans and evangelism. Coming out of our recently completed History Makers Journey in Belarus she had two concrete goals she set in the area of orphan care and personal evangelism. This note below came to me only 6 days after the completion of the journey. She said, “Thank you for prayers. We started to realise our vision. This Sunday in the end of the day we have made a devotional with our orphans. It was blessed. It’s so amazing how open they are. And they were not only playing with us after the service but they were listening to the sermon. When we were going home that same day my friend from college called me. I didn't see her for three years. She was asking for a meeting. And I said yes so she was my first practice after History Makers to share the gospel.”
