Testify of Him!
When the helper comes…he will testify of me. John 15:26
I never cease to be amazed at what God has wrought in the earth through a work He initiated back in 1967. Aglow International celebrates 48 years of ministry this year and continues to reach into the nations of the world to Testify of Him!
The level of commitment, by both women and men, to the ministry of Aglow around the world is unprecedented.
The work of the Holy Spirit
It can only be the work of the Holy Spirit who moves on the hearts of women and men to pray and find a way to begin an Aglow group in their community in nearly 4,000 places around the world.
It can only be God who causes people to step out of their comfort zones to minister in their nations to the lost and hungry, the orphans, the homeless, those in prison – even care for the babies of women in prison. It is all done in faith that God will meet every need.
It can only be God who allows people who live in different nations, different cultures, speak different languages, have different colors of skin to love each other with the deep love of Jesus; and to work together for the sake of reaching people for Christ, testifying of His great love for the world.
It can only be God who draws people from all walks of life including doctors, lawyers, advisors to the Presidents of nations, bankers, educators, to serve Him in a ministry such as Aglow International.
Aglow in the nations
Aglow is in 170 nations that we know of and more are being added. It has been said, “We likely have Aglow in every nation, but we just don’t know it yet!” An example of that happened on June 14 when we received an email from a team of Aglow leaders in UZBEKISTAN that we weren’t aware of! They were requesting a letter of invitation to our upcoming Global Conference. The writer of the letter quickly assured us they would pay their own way and only needed the letter of invitation to apply for their visas.
A woman in ALGERIA has contacted the Aglow office with an interest and a vision for starting an Aglow fellowship in her nation. Circumstances make it difficult, but prayer can make all things possible.
Aglow is being revived in TAIWAN, VANUATU and MAURITIANIA following a time of having no Aglow leadership.
In the DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC OF CONGO, there are currently some 5,000 members.
Aglow International is bringing light in some of the darkest nations of the world.
GameChangers around the world
The GameChanger messages have been taught in Aglow all over the world. Currently, hundreds of small groups in the United States are making a journey through the GameChanger messages and nearly 25 small groups are processing through the LifeChanger messages.
People are catching the vision for upgrading their own walk with God and also a vision for affecting their family, city, and nation in powerful ways.
To date the places outside the U.S. where the GameChanger messages have been taught are:
- European Leader’s Summit with both GameChangers and LifeChangers having been taught.
- Central America Regional Conference in Cancun, Mexico, and again this spring at the Mexico National Conference
- Asia Regional Conference in the Philippines
- All Africa Conference in Zambia
- South America Regional Conference in Paraguay
- Caribbean Regional Conference – 2 of the GC messages were taught
- Graham Cooke himself spoke at the New Zealand National Conference
Over 20 small groups are going through the GameChanger messages in Canada. This month, GameChanger messages will be taught at the national conference in South Korea.
In August, all 5 GameChanger messages will be taught at the national conference in Sri Lanka.
A time to celebrate
You have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nations.
Can you imagine the time in Heaven as those from every tribe and tongue, people and nation celebrate Jesus and all that The Lamb has done?
Why not begin your celebration early and join Aglow International in Indianapolis, November 5-8 as the nations of the world come together…AS ONE… for our Global Conference. It is an experience you will never forget.
