In May, Joe was supposed to be visiting partners in India to carry out leadership and discipleship training in a number of locations. Obviously, due to the current restrictions, this was not possible. However we were able to provide a teaching series which our partners distributed to students and leaders. Some of the feedback was so beautiful and encouraging:

'Your video talks have been so very very helpful. We are always so refreshed and renewed by sharing from you my brother. Continue to send the messages, we are so blessed! May the Lord use you powerfully for the people around the world. Love you and pray for all of you at Links.'

'Thank you so much for the powerful messages! In Our Country as well as many other nations, because of the Coronavirus, churches temporarily can not gather in their buildings. This is forcing church people to meet in homes, which is how the New Testament church began. Families are spending time together. Discipleship groups are being formed. Unbelievers are being introduced to Jesus in the home. People have time to pray, read the Word, and do good to those who are in need - this is a good thing. Blessings unlimited! Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. (Ephesians 6:11)'

Joe was also able to lead training for Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Lima in Peru via Zoom over a week period. The subject was the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the Five-Fold Ministry. Joe writes:
'My friends in YWAM asked me to cover three 3-hour slots and, to be honest, I really wasn’t sure how we were going to do teaching and impartation on the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but it was amazing how God just took over as we saw people released in words of knowledge and powerful healings of both physical and deep emotional scars. Others were activated for the first time in the prophetic and, when we prayed for the baptism in the Holy Spirit and the gift of speaking in tongues, all heaven broke loose for the next couple of hours! Praise God that there is no distance in the Spirit, and God is most certainly not on lockdown!'

We are so grateful to God that we are still able to join with amazing heroes on the frontlines around the world, confronting poverty, creating potential and connecting people!
