Last month we invited you to pray for training happening throughout Africa in February.
Here is a snapshot of how God answered those prayers:
What is a Reach Out FORUM?
Forums train youth leaders to REfocus on Jesus' simple, life-changing approach to ministry. At a Forum, a trainee will discover how to . . .
Go Deeper with Christ
Pray with Passion
Penetrate the Culture
Create Outreach Opportunities
As a result of these Forums, leaders and disciples multiply! Here are the fruits from the training in Africa . . .
In Kenya, 26 new Eagle Leaders were certified!
Who are EAGLE LEADERS?
Once trained leaders have implemented Jesus-Focused Youth Ministry, they may be certified by a regional or country leader. An Eagle Leader is a trainer who trains/mentors other youth leaders.
After attending a Forum, this young woman says God used this training to teach her father to pray.
This pastor said, after being trained in Jesus-Focused Youth ministry,
"We are not the same. We are going to teach other people to make more disciples."

Here’s a quick look at one member of our incredible African team who is hosting Forums, Reuben Zivagwe, Country Leader for Zimbabwe. Read Reuben's bio here, and continue to pray for his leadership!
Through sports evangelism, youth leaders in Burundi are answering the question:
"How do we equip and mobilize volunteers, parents, and students to bring Jesus into the student culture?"

A BIG “THANK YOU” FROM OUR AFRICAN REACH OUT COUNTRY LEADERS!
Your prayers and financial gifts continue to propel our leaders, in spite of adversity, toward experiencing the reality of seeing students’ lives transformed through the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Whether through sports evangelism in Burundi or a fired up Malawi-pastor’s heart to make disciples within the next generation, God is using Reach Out to reach the youth of Africa! See the Praise + Prayer list below for a look at how God used your partnership in Africa last year!
We are combining our monthly newsletter with the monthly prayer letter, providing even more people the opportunity to join us as we pray over the needs and thank God for the blessings throughout this ministry each month.
