31 Days of Prayer for LRI

Dear Friends & Partners,

Colossians 1 and many other passages make it clear that God accomplishes his purposes through prayer and through people. Please, would you join us this year in seeking God for powerful Movements of the Word worldwide?

Our team has written 31 specific prayers connected to what we believe the Lord intends to accomplish through Leadership Resources. Please print this letter and put it on your refrigerator or in your Bible to remind you to pray regularly (even daily!) for us. If you are interested in a set of prayer cards for twelve of the countries in which we work, let us know by sending us a message with the title “Prayer cards.” (Sorry, only available for US addresses.)

Thank you for partnering with us in this most essential way. We so look forward to all that the Lord will do in 2018 as he answers these prayers!

With much gratitude in Christ,

Craig Parro

President

Back to the Future Pedagogy: Discovering the Power of Experiential Learning

A co-worker and I were ensconced in a hotel room for several days in an Asian country that is hostile to Christ and His Church. Every morning, seven tribal pastors arrived one by one, stayed into the evening, and then left one by one, a few minutes apart.

Together, we were wrestling with 1 and 2 Corinthians. One particular aspect of these letters gripped us: Paul’s passionate, personal engagement with these believers.

He had spent 18 months with them, in their homes and their synagogue. After his departure, Paul sent coworkers to further serve and encourage them. He also sent these long, detailed letters. In every way, Paul embraced these dear saints even though they had caused him great heartache.

He praises them, “I give thanks to my God always for you because of the grace of God that was given you in Christ Jesus, that in every way you wee enriched in him in all speech and knowledge…” (1 Cor. 1:4-5). He pleads, “I appeal to you brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree…” (1 Cor. 1:10). He chides, “But I brothers could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ…” (1 Cor. 3:1). He admonishes (see 1 Cor. 4:14) and boldly rebukes, “And you are arrogant! Ought you not rather to mourn?” (1 Cor. 5:2).

And so the letters continue, full of pointed, even harsh critiques, yet at the same time, selfeffacing vulnerability, even more surprising given his strained relationship with the church: “For we were so utterly burdened beyond our strength that we despaired of life itself” (2 Cor. 1:8). Paul admits to struggling with deep discouragement, perhaps even depression. We looked at 2 Corinthians 12 in which Paul boasts of his weaknesses: “So the power of Christ may rest upon me… for when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Cor. 12:9-10).

But this embrace of weakness is only expressed after Paul is driven to boast at length about his accomplishments and apostolic credentials in order to counter the sniping criticisms of the so-called “super apostles” (2 Cor. 11-12).

Paul engages them at a heart level, his emotions never far from the surface. “For I wrote you out of much affliction and anguish of heart and with many tears…” (2 Cor. 2:4). He pleads with them to reciprocate. “We have spoken freely to you Corinthians; our heart is wide open. You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted in your own affections. In return (I speak as to children) widen your hearts also” (2 Cor. 6:11-12).

What is this strange amalgam of emotion and reason, boasting and humility, warnings and affirmations, sarcasm and love? And to what end? What is Paul’s larger purpose? What shepherding intent is he pursuing? For Paul is not merely transmitting information or theological truisms; he is seeking to provoke Spirit-empowered, word-mediated transformation in their lives.

These observations from the Corinthian letters led our small group into a profound discussion about pedagogy. The educational model in their country is typically Asian: information download from the all-knowing professor to the uninformed student. Rote memory, repetition, and regurgitation of facts are standard educational fare.

But how do we break through this cultural model? “It’s impossible!’ some would say. “The top-down model has been used for millennia. The country’s educational system is too deeply engrained to change. The overweening respect for the honorable teacher would never allow for a more engaged, more egalitarian approach to learning.” We all soon discovered that the standard educational model wasn’t so standard after all!

I had remembered that one of the pastors was also a carpenter. “Please stand up, Kueyo. Would you be willing to teach me how to build a chair?” I asked him. His look of puzzled embarrassment spawned a gaggle of giggles. But Kueyo soon warmed to task. “Would you just lecture me?” I asked. “No, of course not,” he answered. “Well then, how would you teach me? And remember, I know nothing about carpentry.”

Kueyo began to describe the process he would use to educate this uneducated westerner. First, he would show me a well-crafted chair. He would have me sit in it and then study it…by lifting it, turning it, feeling it. Next, he would show me the various tools and explain the unique purpose of each. He would place each tool in my hand and cover my hand with his in order to show me the proper way to hold and wield each tool. He would have me practice using some of the tools on scrap pieces of wood, until at last I had demonstrated a minimal level of competency.

The real work of building the chair began with Kueyo, the master craftsman, demonstrating the process. After measuring and cutting the first piece of wood, he would shape and refine it with rasp and file and sandpaper. My turn. “No, that’s not quite right. Try this. Yes, that’s better. No, no, you’ll gouge the wood. Yes, much better. Ah, notice which way the grain runs. Good, you’re getting the hang of it.” Thus, the chair would slowly take shape, with the master providing less direction and more encouragement over time.

What just happened? This man, steeped in a traditional education system, intuitively knew that the most effective way to teach me to build a chair was the classic apprentice-training model. It came naturally to him, for it was the way that he was taught. It was the way that he had learned. This conversation prompted a question which seemed to float about the room: “What does this suggest about how you as pastors might better teach, shepherd, and equip God’s people?”

I then asked another pastor, “When I go back home, I want to tell my wife ‘I love you’ in your language. Please teach me to do that.” Again, there was more embarrassed laughter, but then a revelation came: “We never tell our wives ‘I love you.’ Instead, we communicate love with our eyes and with our tone of voice.” These tribal men already understood the priority and the power of non-verbal communication. It was already rooted in their culture.

“Please, help me learn,” I responded. After a few more bemused twitters, one of the pastors stood up and demonstrated the ‘love look.’ “Like this?” I asked after my pathetic attempt to mimic his facial expression. More laughter. “Is this better? How about this?”

Finally, I asked, “If you catch a thief in one of your villages, how do you teach him to stop stealing?” Another revelation came: in the old days, the village elders would prepare a bed of hot coals and force the offender to walk over them barefoot. Yikes! Nowadays, the elders are more likely to sit the thief down and give him a “talkin’ to.” If necessary, they castigate him publically with the hope that he will bow to the pressure of the community. This tribal group had long ago discovered the power of experiential learning and small group dynamics.

“Think about what you’ve just told me about your culture,” I told them. “You use a wide variety of teaching methods, don’t you? To be sure, your formal educational system tends to be uni-directional with little or no personal engagement. But in the rest of life…in your real world…your teaching process is highly relational and hands-on. It’s full of praxis: action followed by reflection and correction followed by more action and reflection.”

These oral-preference tribal leaders realized that passionate, personal, experiential teaching and learning were already embedded in their culture. They already embraced an adult-education teaching model in the everyday outworking of village life. They discovered that a life-on-life teaching approach is congruent with both their culture and with their Bible.

Rejoice in God’s Life-Giving Word this Christmas

Dear Friends & Partners,

Snowflakes dusted Chicagoland this past weekend. These first flurries are always a bit of a shock for me, after a mild, fragrant Midwest autumn. But then, just as suddenly, the snow reminded me of why Leadership Resources exists.

“For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isa.55:10-11)

Isaiah 55 shapes our ministry, and we hope that these words shape your life as well.
This year, we’ve seen God’s Word accomplishing God’s purposes as we and our partners equipped and empowered more than 5000 pastors to teach God’s Word with God’s heart, in 40 different countries.

How effective is our ministry? Here’s what one mission researcher said after evaluating our work in Russia:

“Your training is like a slow, soaking rain that softens and saturates the ground over a long period of time.” Like the rain and the snow, His Word always succeeds in accomplishing His work.

Through our partnership with you, together, we bless the nations with the written Word that points to the Living Word, our Lord Jesus Christ.

This Christmas, might you rejoice that 2000 years ago the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, fulfilling all of God’s good purposes in Christ.

Filled with much gratitude,

Craig Parro
President

PS: Would you please remember us in your year-end giving? We’ve been s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d this year financially as we’ve done more ministry on fewer dollars. Your generous gift would help us finish the year strong and begin 2018 with great confidence. Donate here.

When Preaching the Word is Costly

To us, preaching the Word is a no-brainer. To people like Pastor John from Kenya, it is a costly choice.

John used to be a “rhema” preacher—that is, one that ‘followed the Spirit’ in preaching—which really meant saying anything that came to his head at the moment. After studying 2 Timothy’s command to “preach the Word” during a TNT (Training National Trainers) workshop, John repented of his preaching approach and began to preach Word-saturated messages, beginning with Jonah.

Many left his church, and one woman even said, “Tell the pastor we’ve had enough of his Bible studies. Can he start preaching the way he used to?”

With this pressure from his church, would John keep preaching the Word?

When Doug Dunton (LRI’s Director of Africa) reconnected with John, he not only confirmed that he was still preaching the Word, but he also shared that his church was growing in ways he had never before seen.

“Where’s this growth coming from?” Doug asked.

“It’s not the same kind of growth, but it is growth of transformation and regeneration in people’s lives…We can see the difference of God’s Word in our lives. “Through new converts,” John said. “It’s not the same kind of growth, but it is growth of transformation and regeneration in people’s lives… We have a church membership now of people who are strongly founded on the Word. We can see the difference of God’s Word in our lives.  And we thank God for where He has taken us.”

John doesn’t want this incredible transformation to stop with him—he is equipping other Kenyan Pentecostal preachers in TNT principles to help them follow God’s command to “preach the word.”

Thanks to the prayers and support of partners like you, courageous men like John can faithfully shepherd their people with God’s Word.

With much gratitude in Christ,

Craig Parro

PS: Doug Dunton told me recently that some of the men we train have the opportunity and desire to pass on TNT principles in South Sudan, even though a civil war is decimating the country. We need to provide funds to cover their expenses for travel and lodging. Would you consider a special gift to help Sudanese pastors learn to preach God’s Word with God’s heart?

Shouldn’t preaching be more than an info dump? Transformational Preaching in the Philippines

Dear Friends and Partners,

Shouldn’t preaching be more than an info dump?

Instead of preaching his own sermons, Pastor Larry read from Bible commentaries for an information-heavy preaching ministry. After beginning TNT, he learned God’s purpose for information in the Bible isn’t only to inform the mind, but to transform lives. Now equipped to study and preach messages for himself, Larry’s preaching brought new, Spirit-backed power.

Cely, a woman in his church battling stage-four bone and liver cancer, took notice of the new Larry. God was changing her life and her church due to her pastor’s TNT-influenced preaching. She soon found out Pastor Larry was training other pastors all over her country, including in her hometown. “How can I help? I want to sponsor the training there because I know what God has done in my life through you.”

Months later, after arriving at the airport in Cely’s hometown to begin TNT training, Pastor Larry and Pastor Neil heard someone shouting their names from a distance while at baggage claim. It was Cely! She had made the trek against her doctor’s orders to join the two and a half day workshop.

Larry asked Cely if her husband, who isn’t a believer, knew she was funding the training. She replied, “It’s actually from him!” Perplexed, Larry said, “He’s not a believer—why would he want to support this?” Cely recounted her husband’s words, “If this type of preaching can bring about this change in my wife, it’s worthy of my financial investment.”

Cely has since gone to be with the Lord. At her wake, her grieving husband told Pastor Larry, “Tell me what you need and I will still support the training.”

Hearing of God’s goodness in the Philippines made our hearts rejoice. Would you join us in prayer for many more Filipino preachers and congregations to be transformed?

Yours in Christ,

Craig Parro

President

PS: Our opportunities to train in SE Asia and the Philippines have outpaced our resources to fulfill them. Would you consider a generous gift to see many more transformed preachers like Larry in SE Asia?

Does Passing On TNT Training Work in the Real World? An Answer from the Jungles of Brazil

Dear Friends and Partners,

You’ve probably played the Telephone Game where a message is whispered from one person to the next. By the end, the final message has morphed into something entirely different, often hilariously so.

I think about the Telephone Game when I’m asked: how much gets lost as your training is passed on to other generations of pastors?

Travel with me to an Amazon village where a TNT (Training National Trainers) graduation took place two years ago. Your mental image is probably pretty accurate: The church has a tin roof—hardly any sides to the building—sitting right along the river. An alligator actually came out of the river during the training. David Merkh, with a twinkle in his eye, told us, “And now he’s starting TNT among the alligators!”

The pastor of the host church was 3rd generation TNT—in other words, he was trained by a pastor, who was trained by a pastor, who was trained by our LRI team. This 3rd generation pastor, who belonged to a remote tribe accessible only by boat, was chosen to give the final message.

David Merkh (see video below)

David Merkh, one of our 1st TNT graduates, told us the story. David is now the leader of TNT in Brazil and so was invited to the graduation. When he first saw the pastor, he wasn’t impressed, thinking: “Hmm, so they chose this guy? I wonder did he really get it after these 4 years???”

The pastor then began to preach from the book of Acts and David was blown away! He told us the pastor “powerfully and boldly preached, explaining the text within it’s context—getting to the heart of God in the passage, and applying it directly to our hearts. He did not mince words.”

This barely-educated pastor, a young man, wasn’t intimated by David and the other leaders coming all the way from São Paulo. Said David, “No, he just said ‘this is God’s Word, it’s God’s authority.’ It was very, very powerful.”

David confessed to us how embarrassed he was by own his lack of faith. He told us, “I guess I wasn’t trusting the training.”

The explanation for the powerful transformation in this young tribal pastor is God’s Word. God’s Word has come to us across many generations and has never lost its power. Thank you for partnering with us to launch Movements of this powerful Word!

With gratitude in Christ,

Craig Parro

President

PS: We have TNT training on-going in 40 countries. Some are significantly under-funded. Please, would you send a gift today so that we might impact remote tribal pastors as well as church leaders serving in the largest, most densely populated cities of the world?

5 Ways to Pray for Us

Dear Partners,

I’m calling on our praying friends to seek the Lord with us these days. The opportunities before us are great, but so are the challenges. We desperately need the Lord to lead and provide this summer. Specifically, would you pray regularly for…

  1. Our ministry—equipping pastors around the world to teach God’s Word with God’s heart—is flourishing. Just this year, I’ve told you stories of pastoral transformation… Andre from Ukraine, Xavier from Ecuador, Omar from Honduras, Eshete from Ethiopia. Join us in praising God for the great fruit He is producing!
  2. The rapid expansion we’ve experienced over the past few years (tripling the # of pastors in training) has caused some strains. Our U.S. staff is struggling to shepherd these Movements of the Word. I’m concerned—we’re understaffed. We need more trainers. We need more support and fund-raising staff. Please ask the Lord of the harvest to provide the right people at the right time for us.
  3. Several staff are under-funded. Six have gotten short paychecks over the past few months. Unfortunately, we don’t have a big pool of dollars that we can dip into to make up the difference. Please pray for them… short checks can be so discouraging.
  4. I’ve recently asked Phil Smith to serve as LRI’s Interim Executive Director. Phil is a very talented leader who thinks in terms of building teams, creating healthy processes, and bringing organizational clarity. He’s helping us re-think our structure so that we better fulfill our mission. Pray for Phil… wisdom, strength, and favor with both God and the men and women of LRI.
  5. We’re the best-kept secret around… unfortunately! Pray that the Lord would enable us to get the word out so that more churches, pastors and individuals who have a deep love for the ministry of God’s Word would learn about us, and maybe, partner with us.

Thank you for partnering with us in the spiritual realms!

With much gratitude in Christ,

Craig Parro

President

 

PS: Although all of these prayer requests are important, “Staff Funding” weighs heaviest on my heart at this time. As you are praying, if the Lord puts it on your heart, would you please respond with a generous gift this month so that we might bless our under-funded staff?

Pastors’ Confidence in God’s Word is Growing in Ukraine

Dear Friends and Partners,

Is it possible for the gospel to advance in Ukraine when a smoldering civil war keeps erupting?

Yes! Yes! Yes! One of our three trainings in Ukraine takes place at a Baptist seminary in L’Viv. Four years ago, the seminary contemplated closing its doors with only forty students enrolled. Today, this seminary is bursting at the seams with 400 students—10x’s growth in only four years!

God is also using TNT training to strengthen the Ukrainian church. One of our Mentor Trainers, Bova, told LRI staff, “You are such a refreshment because you are so confident in God’s Word. The joy and liveliness you bring is great. I want to be just like you.”

Confidence in God’s Word is contagious. Ukrainian pastors’ confidence in God’s Word is growing, propelling them to train others. Here are three quick glimpses:

  • Pastor Andre

    Andre has trained his church’s preachers and Sunday school teachers in Jonah and 2 Timothy. The challenge of aligning schedules means he trains multiple groups of two or three, but Andre sees it as a benefit and opportunity to go deeper. “They’re changing,” Andre said. “They see the Scriptures differently.”

  • Pastor Albert trains a group of five men who collectively shared our Genesis training with a youth camp. His trainees (affectionately called his “Timothys”) are sharing the training at other youth camps as well. “People are tired of experts,” Albert remarked, “but the biggest expert is the Bible—and that is what we want to teach.”
  • Pastor Albert

    Another pastor in our Poltava group replicated our training in Jonah at his church’s three-day retreat.

Confidence in God’s Word is growing! God is using TNT training to strengthen pastors and churches in Ukraine. These three men are a microcosm of LRI’s vision: seeing the Word of God flow powerfully through every church to every nation!

Would you pray with us for the Ukrainian church’s confidence in God and His Word to grow and for the gospel to spread?

Thank you for your prayers and support. None of this would be possible without you.

With gratitude,

Craig Parro

President

PS: Our work in Eastern Europe is new. In addition to three groups in Ukraine, we also equip pastors in Bulgaria and Serbia. Such a strategic part of the world, with much need. We don’t have enough partners to continue and expand the work. Would you please consider a gift today to support Movements of the Word throughout Europe? Thank you!

 

Steadfast in the Face of Persecution

Dear Friends and Partners,

Pastor Timur* knew the police were watching him. He’s a Training National Trainers (TNT) student in Muslim-dominated Central Asia hungry for training and passionate to train other house church pastors like himself. He has also lived in the reality that his Christian activities may bring him trouble.

One day police interrogators knocked on his door to search for “drugs and weapons.” Timur knew what they really sought: evidence to halt his ministry work. Feigning innocence Timur told investigators, “I have no weapons or drugs. Feel free to search.”

Timur previously deleted sermons from his computer knowing this day might come. Even so, he soon remembered one sermon on his computer on how to be a missionary—surely a topic that would implicate him! To his dismay, the interrogators found the sermon and fined him $400. Timur currently awaits a trial that may lead to more fines or jail time.

Although exhausted and ‘shell-shocked’, he doesn’t think he’s doing anything extraordinary—just being faithful to God’s call. In the midst of this major trial and uncertainty, he remains strong, steadfast, and committed to the gospel at any cost.

What a privilege it is to know and partner with courageous pastors like Timur! Would you join us in praying for our persecuted brother?

Pray for Timur and other persecuted pastors that LRI is equipping and encouraging in the Muslim world.

Yours in Christ,

Craig Parro

PS: Would you also consider a gift to help further train pastors like Timur in Central Asia?

*His real name has been withheld for security purposes.

God’s Power for Challenging Times: Xavier’s Story

Dear Friends and Partners,

What’s up with Xavier???

That was the question that puzzled Patricio Paredes and Kevin Halloran when they picked up Pastor Xavier Peñafiel for his final TNT (Training National Trainers) week in Ecuador. Xavier’s usual joy was being crushed by a heavy weight.

Here’s why—earlier that week, a thief broke into his church and made off with a brand new sound system and Xavier’s personal computer, containing all of his personal information and documents. This theft felt like the final straw…the latest in a string of major discouragements for Xavier and his ministry.

How could he go on?

Xavier discovered God’s answer as he listened to example sermons from 1–2 Samuel and worked through the text using the TNT principles of interpretation: God uses humble people in impossible situations to establish his Kingdom on earth.

Consider… 

  • Hannah’s story in 1 Samuel 1:1–2:11. God used the remarkable faith of a rather unremarkable (and barren) woman to bring forth the godly leader, Samuel, that Israel so desperately needed.
  • David’s story in 1 Samuel 17. The narrator bends over backwards to show the unlikeliness of David’s victory: David, a mere shepherd boy (who burned with a fiery zeal for God’s glory) was bringing snacks for his brothers, the “real” warriors. Yet God used David with nothing more than a small stone and a sling to topple the formidable giant who threatened both the people and the honor of God.

Over those three days, a powerful truth began to slowly grip Xavier: if God could use a barren woman and shepherd boy, surely he could use him in spite of his own weakness and discouragements.

God turned Xavier’s heavy burden into a strengthened calling to advance God’s kingdom in a fallen world.

This is why we immerse students in books of the Bible…so pastors experience transformation directly from God’s Word, and so that that transformation propels them to teach and equip others.

Thank you for partnering with us so that God’s glory is displayed in men like Xavier!

With gratitude for you,

Craig Parro

President

PS: While Xavier’s group just graduated the TNT program, our work in Portoviejo, Ecuador is taking off, with two groups already launched and another launching in April. Please, give this month so that our work in Ecuador develops into a Movement of God’s Word in this strategic Latin American country!
