Life Transforming

MMT gives participants a broader view of what is happening in the world beyond what appears in the news. Exploring different places around the globe, many people finish the week with a deeper sense of purpose and direction. Many testified how God has been stirring their hearts towards committed prayer for the persecuted church or using their finances to support those serving on the missions field.

For God to reveal what I ought to do, how I am to serve Him and where in the world He wants to place me.” This was the theme expressed by the students at Missions Discipleship Training (MDT) in South Africa as one of the main expectations for the training. The six-month training programme aims to let students experience the reality in South Africa and equip them for a missional life wherever God calls them. This is accomplished in a variety of ways: from lectures to outreaches to work duties.

During Missions Mobilizing Training (MMT) week God spoke to many of the students about their next steps in life.

Christopher* a young man from East London, South Africa, expressed how the Logos Hope was the reason he came for MDT, although he wasn’t sold on the idea of joining the ship. During MMT Christopher experienced a moment where God told him where to serve. Together with 12 others, God broke Christopher’s heart for the people of Afghanistan – to serve them with wholeheartedly regardless of the consequences.

At the end of MDT — when the students return to their homes to mobilize their churches, go back to their jobs or continue their education — it is safe to say those who have gone through MDT will never be the same. Whether they go to closed countries halfway around the world or go back to work, their hearts were forever captured by the hands of the Almighty God.
