Ministry Update – Middletons’ Report

Prayer for the Kingdom (Family) of God:

“My response is to get down on my knees before the Father, this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth. I ask him to strengthen you by his Spirit—not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in. And I ask him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love. Reach out and experience the breadth! Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:15-19 The Message (MSG)

Family News:
Lynn and Bob: Mary and I had a wonderful week at a small cabin in Idaho with Lynn and Bob, Josh and Matt and his wife Ashley. Jess and Kent’s 4 children (our great grandchildren) were there from Nashville as well.
Mark and Linda: We camped with Mark and Linda and their 2 children Julia and Steven. Mosetta and Konah (our African grandchildren in Edmonton) plus Paterson (second son of Zizina our African family in Airdrie) who was participating in the Provincial Soccer Tournament that weekend in Edmonton).
Joan and Earl: We camped with Joan and Earl and went fishing. I caught a 29 inch (7 pound) Northern Pike. I have not been fishing for many years. It was quite a thrill. However, I still prefer being a fisher for men! (Matthew 4:19)
Raymond, Joan and Earl’s youngest son is engaged to Kendra Tetley. Pray for them as they plan for their wedding in 2019.

Global DCI Family is made up of our national and international leaders, administration, pastors, people who pray for our ministry, those who invest financially, disciple-makers and disciples. God is using you and people just like you who are working together faithfully doing his/her part so that with God’s empowering we can be a vital part of the greatest endeavour on earth – sharing God’s love and eternal life with our needy world!

The following DCI Reports tell only a small part of what God is doing!
Simeon Oyugi Nairobi, Kenya: Simeon and his team continue to get many requests from all over Africa, wanting him or his team to come and help them develop the Spontaneous Disciple Making Strategy in their country. One of Simeon’s DCI Trainers, Pastor Dan Nyali recently did DCI training sessions in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia. This is a big opening into the southern part of Africa. Pastor Dan reports that he trained 62 Pastors/ Leaders, 26 people prayed to received Jesus Christ as they shared the gospel in the community and they were invited to start 26 Discovery Groups with those who received Jesus and include their family and friends.

Ramananda Imphal, North East India shares: “It is my joy and privilege to let you know that the ten disciples have completed their training and they are now actively and faithfully looking after their own churches/fellowships that they planted. It is a great encouragement to me and my family to see what God has done in the lives of these men and women. At the end of their training as they shared their experiences, they said DCI training is totally different. They also said, that they have been Christians for many years but they have truly been tested in their Christian faith during these discipleship sessions. I
also could see the great changes taking place in their lives day by day! Please continue to pray for them. On July 26th, 2017, I was witnessing Christ in a village called Thamnapokpi and God touched many men and women boys and girls! The old man next to me was moved by the Holy Spirit. He is from a very orthodox fanatic Hindu family. His name is Khwairakpam Herachandra Shing. He was a man who always gave trouble to the Christians in the village. He came on that day not to listen to God’s Word but to find out if I was saying anything against Hinduism. After listening to me, he forgot everything, he forgot even that he came angry! He was crying and said to me, “Son, how are all
these wonderful heart touching words coming out of your mouth?” And he further said that, he has recorded every single word I spoke and he will repeat everything with his family members back at home. He prayed together with me and confessed that “if Christianity truly means what you say then why shouldn’t we all follow Jesus Christ? What a great all-knowing, almighty God we serve!”
Ramananda shares the following vision for the next year:
It is our vision and prayer to reach 6000 non-Christian families, establish at least 20 churches/house fellowships, reproduce at least 200 disciple makers and to give water baptism to 200 believers.”

Moala Kashung shares: “Lots of love to you from the DCI family in India. Nepal, Bangladesh and Myanmar. We are all giving our best for the extension of God’s kingdom in our respective countries. We keep in touch with each other and share our successes and failures, prayer concerns and encourage each other. What a lovely family of DCI! In this spreadsheet below you will come across the name Bhim Deuba of Nepal. Once, he was the Chief of the Maoist Party rebel group against the Monarchy in Nepal. By his own hand, sword (khukri) and gun he murdered hundreds of people. God dramatically caught him to be his messenger in Nepal. God connected us and encouraged us to work together with him for God’s kingdom. Our first step was to bring him to our office and train him in the DCI strategy. So, we have done that successfully and effectively. He has started the work and speedy progress is going on in Nepal. We have invited him to come to India every two months with his ministry report, sharing, prayer time and drawing his salary. We pay him Rs 5000 which is about $80.00 USD per month for his needs. We are compelled to scrape out from every possible hole. God is faithful! We are praying that God will raise up someone to provide! Thank you for your prayer and financial support for the DCI family in India.” The following shows the results of 21 recently sent out Church Planters. Notice that these are Churches (Fellowships) that have planted other churches up to 4 generations of churches. Members only are listed. Attendees would be many more.
