Welcome to 2023!
Here's What's Next...

Welcome to 2023! Happy New Year! We pray that you are doing well and rejoicing that your name is written in the book of life! After Jesus’ disciples returned from their mission, they told Him about all the good things God did through them. Jesus told them to rejoice that their names were written in the book of life! (Luke 10:20)
We are rejoicing because God answered your prayers and our prayers for the end-of-year matching gift. Thank you so much for praying!

We are also rejoicing because we have almost reached our goal of 20,000 equipped pastors and church leaders. In the fall of 2020, we set the goal of 20,000 equipped pastors and church leaders, and we have now reached 19,000 equipped pastors and church leaders. We are confident in the Lord that we will surpass this goal during the first quarter of the year. Thank you for praying for this!
Next month, I am planning a trip to Western Asia, Uganda, and Liberia. We are launching the CCI ministry in Liberia through a Liberian contact here in the USA. He is organizing the Teacher Training Workshop and the God’s Financial Principles seminar with 25 pastors who will start classes there after the Teacher Training Workshop. There are 15 counties in Liberia. Please pray that we will have a representative in every county.

I would like to share with you one of our training tools, the God's Financial Principles seminar. Please enjoy this video testimony below from Henry Ventura, the National Director Philippines. He explains how the God's Financial Principles seminar teaches Christians about biblical finances.

In April, I plan to tour churches in Australia and New Zealand. Three of our national directors will be joining me for this tour. Henry Ventura (Philippines), Sitha Dourng (Cambodia), and Vijay Kumar (India) will join me for this tour. We will speak and present at churches. A Cross Before the Crown seminar is also scheduled in late April in Auckland, New Zealand. Please pray that God will empower us and stir up the hearts of His people there to make disciples of all nations!
From mid-August to mid-October, we are organizing another U.S. tour from southern Virginia to Florida with eight national directors from Asia. We look forward to seeing many of you again. Please pray for the planning and logistics. For more information, contact Amanda Boston at aboston@cciequip.org.
In November (4-12), we are planning our next Global Conference in Chiang Mai, Thailand. We would love for you to join us at this conference to see firsthand what God is doing and meet our trainers and coordinators from all over the world.

It will also be a time of celebration as we reflect on how the Lord has blessed CCI above and beyond. We set out to reach 20,000 equipped leaders by 2025, but the Lord has almost doubled our leaders in half the time.
