Just imagine the entire population of Whatcom County (216,228) hearing the great news of Jesus’s love and forgiveness in one year. That’s what happened through LGN pastors in India alone. Our network of 1200 pastors shared Jesus with 234,736 people all over the nation of India. Now imagine all the people living in Blaine, Birch Bay, Lynden, Ferndale, Nooksack, Everson, Sumas and 9,000 people in Bellingham becoming born again Christians in one year. Or in other terms, imagine 53% of all the 87,574 people in Bellingham becoming born again in 2017. That’s what happened through our pastors in Cambodia and India with over 47,000 decisions for Christ.  We saw 123 people come to faith in Christ daily in India alone. Isn’t that amazing? But we are not done yet. Now imagine the entire population of Blaine (5164) and Everson (2634) all getting baptized as new believers in Christ in one year. Despite growing persecution LGN pastors baptized 7,561 new believers in 2017. Isn’t that fantastic! What about new church plants? Imagine the entire number of people in Everson, Nooksack and Sumas (5568). That’s only 99 more people than the 5,469 new churches started by the LGN in India. Our pastors start 15 churches every day. We started several churches in Cambodia as well. But we all know that training leaders is crucial for God’s kingdom to multiply. How did we do there? Our pastors trained more than 20,771 leaders which is more than all the men, women and children in Lynden and Blaine combined (19,116). Please celebrate with us the glorious things God has done!

 

Shout joyful praises to God, all the earth.

Sing about the glory of his name.

Tell the world how glorious he is!    Ps 66:1-2
