Praying for and Discipling the New Generation
Malik and the sports outreach team are still in the middle of their summer season of ministry. They work together to engage youth in group activities and games in order to share the Message of the gospel. They see how God uses this to help young people find truth in the Majority world of the Middle East. Young people are putting their faith in Jesus, and Malik's team is discipling the new generation.
Camp as a Tool for Discipling the New Generation
What does it look like when North American teams come to help Malik and his team at a youth camp?
- They share the Message of the Gospel together in main group meetings.
- They interact about their spiritual questions in small group meetings.
- They get to know each other personally in conversational English activities.
- They play together in sports and games that lead to truth principles.
In the evenings, Malik introduces games to all of the campers.
"The sport team members are still on fire to go and share the Message. What a blessing it is to see them taking the step to responsibility and lead an outreach event, share what God is teaching them and inviting their friends to be part of our team."
The New Generation of Believers in the Middle East
After almost thirty events this summer, Malik said the team saw many people accept Jesus. Some already took steps to join the discipleship program to begin growing in their faith. With about twenty events remaining in this season of ministry, Malik says, "We all try to focus on what God wants us to share with the youth. Would you please pray for this new generation?"
Malik is planning the next camp to bring some young people who don't yet know Jesus to be influenced by those who are already disciples of Christ. He needs people to pray for God to work in hearts, and he needs partners to give to cover the cost of hosting this camp at a simple, secure retreat site in the middle of a Majority neighborhood. You can give a gift to make a difference here.
Pray for Malik Discipling the New Generation:
- leading the sports outreach team in the remaining events of this season
- beginning with discipling the new generation who believed in Jesus this summer
- facing health challenges during this full outreach season
- needing provision of personal support so he can continue to minister full-time
