“…you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
If you draw a line from Jerusalem through the center of the Earth, you will end up in the South Pacific – literally the end of the Earth! While it was heavily “Christianized” in the past two centuries, it was heavy on behavior and light on the Holy Spirit. What remains has been mixed with old tribal beliefs and superstitions and is not the Gospel as we know it. A door has opened for the Gospel and people are responding by the thousands throughout the islands. Scores of fervent new pastors are being released into the region. And at the request of the Area Missionary for the South Pacific, Beaverton Foursquare is investing in pastoral training of these new pastors.
Pray for these new pastors; that the Gospel would go forth through them and by the power of the Holy Spirit.
