Generations of Disciples Across Decades and Miles

Xiao Mei* started following Jesus while attending a university in Australia and was initially discipled by Navigators there. When she returned to her home in a “closed country” in Asia, she met Lou Choat, who began to mentor her spiritually.

The coronavirus restrictions are changing me. Good things are resulting from staying at home. These are re-setting weeks. God’s Spirit is with me, making itself known in the quietness of these at-home days. When the pandemic has passed, I hope I don’t return to my former ways! Many of the

Creating a Birthday to Remember

Part of our ministry centers around our neighborhood. We have had the privilege of reaching out to many young couples. Recently I have loved using A Woman’s Journey of Discipleship Navigator studies with two young moms in our cul-de-sac. We praise God that one of them, “Mary,” accepted Christ as her Lord and
