Praise Report from India Trip — July 28-August 11, 2017

Once more the Lord has shown Himself merciful in granting me such abundant favor in my teaching trip to India! After flying round trip for a total of 37 hours and teaching 45 hours in very humid classrooms, I arrived back home from India last night, safe, healthy, exhausted, and humbled by the opportunity to make large deposits of Biblical truth into the lives of young men who have so little, if any training. For eight consecutive years I have been privileged by Dr. Ron Herrod to teach these students at the two RHEMA Bible Institutes in India on how to be more passionate and productive in obeying the Great Commandment and fulfilling the Great Commission.

Here are a few of the many testimonies from the students: “I thank the Lord for letting me join the discipleship class which really change my whole outlook and understanding towards Christian living and life. I was not taught ore even aware that disciple-making was the work of all believers. I really thank the Lord for Wade Trimmer’s life and for using him to open my eyes to these truths.”

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors and supporters that helped Pastor Wade to come to the RHEMA Institute and give us such an important teaching. Every day of the week, I learned so many things I had never even heard of before. I learned how Jesus made disciples and what a Jesus Standard disciple looks like. I learned how to preach the gospel to others and share my testimony. After all of this teaching, I found out that my thinking was very wrong and my vision was very small, but now I know I must have a global vision which is huge!”

One more out of the 50 or more testimonies that was handwritten and given to me: ” Dear Sir, for teaching us Discipleship subject, which I found very interesting because I learned something new and uncommon. Although I am doing pastoral ministry as well as evangelistic ministry, I had never heard these practical lessons. So I am very, very grateful  and I am going to apply all these new ideas in my personal ministry.”

The directors of the Institutes in the two cities of India do such a great job of overseeing all the necessary tasks that makes for such excellent schools. A special thanks is in order for Jaison, Abraham, Heera and Raj for the self-less and sacrificial work they do in running these Institutes. Please continue to pray that out of these two Institutes, several “Timothy” type disciples will emerge from each that will run with Jesus’ Standard and deposit their love, life, and learning into faithful men who will be able to teach others, Others, OTHERS, until disciples have been made of all people groups on the earth (2 Tim. 2:2).

Pray for continued favor, fruit, health, and financial blessings for Dr. Ron Herrod and the RHEMA Bible Institutes that his ministry underwrites. (Thanks, Dr. Ron, for once again giving me the opportunity to invest in these men!)

Again with profound gratitude, I thank Pastor Brian Fields, Bro. Paul and Billie Tsika, and all the saints of Grace Fellowship, as well as all of you on our mailing lists for your continuing involvement, investments, and intercession for me and Training for Reigning Institute of Disciple-making.

 

Prayer Request for the India Trip — July 28 — August 12, 2017

Yours prayers are coveted as I (Wade Trimmer) leave Friday, July 28, for India. I will be teaching disciple-making all day (6-7 hours daily) in a non-air-conditioned room, for five days, in each of the RHEMA Bible Institutes being held in these cities.

Pray for all connections to be made, for good seats, for safety and protection, and health and physical stamina for this old body, (with layovers, highway travels, etc. it takes over 36 hours to get there!). Pray for Anne as she stays by the “stuff” at home. Ask Father God for Holy Spirit anointing to fall on both the teacher and the students. Ask for the Holy Spirit to grant the gift of communication of truth, illumination for the students, and life on life impartation during all our training sessions. Ask the Lord to grant that some of these young men will be captured and consumed by the Master and His Mandate; becoming disciples who make disciples with total world impact in view.

Pray for continued health, favor, fruit, and financial blessings for Dr. Ron Herrod and all the RHEMA Bible Institutes that his ministry underwrites. (Thanks, Dr. Ron, for once again giving me the opportunity to invest in these men!)

A special thanks goes to Pastor Brian Fields and the saints at Grace Fellowship of Augusta for your continuing involvement, investments, and intercession for me and Training for Reigning Institute of Disciple-making.

 

Praise Report from the Kenya, East Africa Trip — May 1-12, 2017

May 17, 2017 by

Thank you for praying, and the Lord for granting your request, for me (Wade Trimmer) and Kevin Twisdale.  This was a 12 day, 16,000-mile round trip assignment that took us across the equator twice. The two three-day conferences, training key leaders on employing Jesus’ standard of disciple-making in the cities of Eldama Ravine and Nakuru, Kenya, was fruitful and filled with great potential for a disciple-making movement to begin. We left with the confidence that a number of potential disciples who will make disciples emerged. The preaching services on Sunday saw 6-8 persons profess faith in Christ.

The following statement is from the organizer and director of the conferences, Pastor Hassar Omega:

“Halo Wade. Thank you for coming to us at such a crucial time to teach the Church. I’ve heard so many good feedback from pastors and church leaders who attended both Conferences, in Eldama Ravine and Nakuru. The Church needs these powerful teachings on Disciple Making. Adopting the Strategy of Jesus! This will break stagnation and false teachings, and using mostly Satan’s substitute strategy! The teachings will grow a powerful worldwide church! Pastors in Eldama Ravine are asking for more! Some missed because they were in the farms planting for the rains had just come. Those who attended have started putting into practice what they got. Some say they thought they were useless because they don’t do crusades! They are now able to reach one person and grow! I was in Nakuru, and Bishop George, the pastor of the church where the conference was held, says, “the teachings were deeper, wider and clearer than he thought!” They have stopped the system they were using to adopt the Jesus Strategy of Disciple-making! Glory to God! They are asking for more meetings!

Many Pastors are asking for Full Board Conference in the future so they can concentrate on the teachings. They don’t mind leaving their homes just to be in one place even for three or four days!”

Thanks again for your prayers and support.

I have just added a new section to our main top menu. Look on the second line, to the left of Wade’s Weekly Word, and you will see a new VIDEOS section. I just added two links, in that section, to videos that Pastor Wade wanted to make available ASAP.

May the Kingdom of Jesus come more fully and His will be done more each day in our lives. May He help each of us to have disciples and learn to make disciples who make more disciples.

Praise Report for Accra, Ghana Mission — Jan. 20-27, 2017

January 30, 2017 by

Thank you for praying for the training efforts of pastors and key leaders in Accra, Ghana. First cousins, Kevin and Keith Twisdale teamed up with me (Wade Trimmer) for an excellent five days of training church leaders in how to better fulfill the Great Commission. Although the teaching environment was challenging because of the heat and inconsistent electricity to run a few ceiling fans, the Lord gave both teachers and students physical stamina, spiritual power and a fervent desire to get to know HIM deeper and make HIM known more pervasively by reproducing multiplying disciples who will make the Fame of HIS Name spread to the ends of the earth!.

This conference was organized and administered by one choice, capable, servant of God, Pastor Benjamin Ofori Nyame. I will let Ben give a  brief testimony in his own words:

“Dad,

“Praise God. We deeply appreciate your labor of love and example obedience to the Great Commission. Your close contact with us with your team has made great impact in the disciples God gathered for Himself from six countries within West Africa. This is our praise report to say thank you Jesus and ask for God’s blessings upon loved ones who stand by you in prayer and support.”

Ben’s Word about the Training Team

“Praise God for Pastor Wade and his team (Kevin and Keith Twisdale) time with us in Ghana. God gathered 46 disciples from six West Africa Countries for five days intensive training (23-27/1/17). The countries include Nigeria, Benin, Togo, Ghana, Cote D’ivoire and Guinea Conakry.

“Confessions were made by the students on how Jesus’ strategy had been substituted with Satan’s strategy in their ministry assignment. Testimonies were shared and decision to be True Disciples making Disciples that will be reproducing  disciples were made. God made provision for the upkeep of all the disciples for their feeding and extra accommodation through Pastor Wade and Brother Kevin. The disciples praise God for such kindness and are keeping our loved ones who shown us such kindness on knees before God. Please keep the trained disciples in prayer to keep us abiding in Christ to reproduce beyond four generations to the end of the world, till the end of the age.”

Other Testimonies from the Students:

“My name is Josue Kohu. I am 52 years old and although my language is French, I will try to write this brief testimony in English, by the grace of God. My country is Cote D’ivoire (Ivory Coast) and I am presently in Ghana since 2011 as a refuge from the civil war in my country. I am married and have 7 children. Before I came to this program (training), God had send me to make disciples, but I don’t know how to make disciples, when to make disciples, who must make disciples, and where to make disciples. So, through this training, I have received the answer to all these questions. God has transformed my life through the teachings of His servants.”

Evangelist Ziza Benjamin, living in a refugee camp in Ghana, writes: “”I can assure you that I had never received such of training within my 10 years of ministry. It was like a veil was lifted off my eyes, a motivation of my entire being, and a new beginning in my pastoral life.”

“I am Twene Jacob from Ghana. I’m an evangelists and I have preached for many years and unfortunately I never trained a single disciple. I thought I was doing the right thing. I learned a lot in this seminar on how to train disciples for generational multiplication. I am very happy for this seminar.”

Peter Gamy from Guinea Conakry, West Africa: “My thanks goes to the Almighty God who send His servants, Wade Trimmer and Kevin and Keith Twisdale to train us in disciple-making course. After this course, my life has been completely changed. Now I know what is my assignment and what I should do to obey the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. I also understand the meaning of proper vision and the deeply information about the Gospel. May God strongly bless His servants for this powerful work.”

Please continue to pray that the Holy Spirit will cause a number of “Timothy” type disciples (2 Timothy 2:2) to emerge from this group of pastors.

Thank you so much for your continuing intercession and investment in our ministry efforts. I am humbled and highly honored by the Lord to have you as my partners in kingdom extension for the Fame of the Name of our great King!

Praise Report from the Lome, Togo, West Africa Trip — Dec 2-10, 2016

December 11, 2016 by  
Filed under News

Thanks to the Lord’s answer to your prayers, I made it home from Lome, Togo, exhausted, but refreshed and encouraged in the opportunities the Lord gave me to minister the Word in several different venues, including a wedding, preaching at a church service, a baby dedication, and four days of training pastors in how to better fulfill the Great Commission by following Jesus’ standard and strategy. Overall I think this was one of the best groups of pastors (34 in number) I have ever attempted to teach based on their readiness to receive the teachings, take copious notes, ask intelligent questions, beg for me to do more and longer teaching times, and then express such gratitude for my labors. Dr. Kouami Midekor, the key leader of this network of men and churches, did an excellent job in working out all the logistics for the conference, translating for me, and then, along with his sweet wife, Afi, showing me such gracious hospitality as a guest in their home.

I taught for around 18 hours on how to make disciple who make other disciples with the vision of doing so in every people group in the world. Almost to a person, all the men said we have never heard this teaching before.  One said it was worth more to him than all his time in Bible college.

The leader in charge, Pastor Kouami, shared this note: “It was wonderful to have Pastor Trimmer here in Togo. His teachings, were so inspiring, edifying, and deep. We appreciate him much and look forward for his return to teach us more. The testimonies from the Pastors here, thought provoking, and very considerate. We needed training, and that is what we had for 4 days. God bless Pastor Trimmer and all those who invested in his coming to Togo. PLEASE SEND HIM AGAIN AND THE NEXT TIME WITH ONE WAY TICKET. GOD BLESS YOU ALL.”

One of my translators, Pastor Emile, wrote: “Dear Brother Wade, we do thank the Lord for your coming to Togo. It was a confirmation to me that I was on the right path only I did not know how to walk on it. The Lord has shown me a long time ago that discipleship is the key for a successful ministry. But I did not understand the concept as you explained it to us. And since I did not understand the concept I failed every time I tried to disciple believers.

“But now, since I saw in your teaching where I failed to understand and to do, I’m better equipped to start all over again, with one to three, as you said.

“I was impressed with the idea of DMD (disciples making disciples) with TWI (total world impact). I did not have that in the beginning. I will do all my effort to construct my ministry now on, base on Jesus strategy. I really like the concept of Jesus strategy, when I saw it demonstrated in the Bible.

“My evangelistic ministry did not produce the fruits as I expected. We go out every Saturday mornings knocking on every door with no, or very few success. I was asking myself if there were not a better method. I did not know the man of peace and the house of peace concept. I shared it with my wife, and my son, our youth pastor. And we both decided to start praying and looking for these. And progressively change the way we do evangelism, starting with myself, my wife, my son and his wife and when we have disciples teach them to do so.

“In sum, we have decided to shape progressively our whole ministry base on the task of making disciples that will make disciple with the goal of multiplications of disciple that will eventually result in multiplication of churches. We will start now and slow, as you taught us.  I will keep you informed of how it is going and maybe you can mentor me, though we will be thousands of miles away from each other.

“Thanks Brother Wade  for coming to Togo. Pastor Homawoo Emile.”

Please continue to pray that the Holy Spirit will cause a few “Timothy” type disciples to emerge from this group of pastors.

Thank you so much for your continuing to intercede and invest in our ministry efforts. I am humbled and highly honored by the Lord to have you as my partners in kingdom extension for the fame of the Name of our great King!

Praise Report from the Mission to Siguatepeque, Honduras — Nov. 5-12, 2016

November 13, 2016 by  
Filed under News

Praise the Lord for another fruitful mission to the children of Destino del Reino Christian School in respect to their dental needs. Dentist, Dr. Bill Wright, dental assistant, Jackie Tucker, and dental hygienists, Sharon McGowan and Lena Roberts made up one of the best dental teams I have ever worked with. It was an honor and delight to be with them for the week. They worked hard from Saturday through Thursday and rendered quality dental care and love to many patients, children and adults alike. Thanks guys!

This was my 36th trip to Honduras! I (Wade Trimmer) preached at Destino church on Sunday and Wednesday, and then did a one day conference on Friday with 200 in attendance. School was dismissed for the day and the older teenagers and teachers, plus family and friends attended. The service on Wednesday night, with 600 persons present, was a Spirit-anointed time. Likewise, the conference meetings on Friday were a time of edification, liberation, and spiritual refreshing from the Lord.

Please continue to pray for our sister, Rhonda Jackson, the director of this great ministry, who is being mightily used of the Lord. She continues to astound and amaze me with her child-like trust of the Lord and the miraculous, daily ways Father provides for her and the ministry’s needs. Pray for her personal health and safety, as well as all the funds, resources, and personnel needed to continue to equip future generations of young men and women who will impact, not only Honduras, but the world! Thank you for your ongoing intercession and investment in Training for Reigning Institute of Disciple-making and Pastor Wade Trimmer.
