Sharing the Story of otLIVE
Sergey and Inna are passionate about sharing the truth of God’s Word with their community in Ukraine. They felt they couldn’t always answer their coworkers’ questions about biblical themes in a cohesive way. When their church hosted Walk Thru the Bible’s otLIVE, they jumped at the chance. Read what happens next.
Chosen in a Honduran Prison
For Walk Thru the Bible, launching a resource in a new country is like skipping a stone across a large pond. We give it as much momentum as we can, we train instructors, we equip as we can, but it’s hard to gauge how much distance is covered until the ripples start to extend outward. We never know how God will use these new resources, but we do know that He does.
Give Hope to Lenasia
God is writing a beautiful story in Lenasia, South Africa. More than 1900 children at the Holiday Bible Club in Lenasia heard the big picture story of the Old Testament through Walk Thru the Bible’s otLIVE.
Be inspired by hearing the transformation of a math teacher from West Africa and the impact he is making in the next generation.
The Impact of One
In Africa, Asia, and Latin America, more than 80 percent of pastors have never received any formal training in leadership or theology. A severe shortage of training opportunities, coupled with the exponential growth of Christianity in the Global South, has created an urgent and growing need.
In their first years of leading a church, Kathy was trying to think of ways to engage young people with the Bible when God brought Walk Thru the Bible to mind. “I attended a Walk Thru the Bible live event in my 20s and fell in love with the whole idea of learning the Bible in chronological order and getting your body involved,” she says.
Laying a New Foundation
For the first time, Walk Thru the Bible instructors had traveled to the region to train and
equip indigenous leaders. Some leaders made a journey of at least three or four days by boat to attend the training conference, according to Alejandro Colombo, Walk Thru the Bible’s regional director for South America. “One couple traveled 15 days from the Brazilian border to be here!” he marvels.
New Growth in Vietnam
After years of starts and stops, Walk Thru the Bible’s ministry in Vietnam is picking up speed again. “We’re reigniting relationships,” says Mark Schaaf, Walk Thru the Bible’s international training director. By reactivating old networks and seeking new opportunities, Mark will help lead an “intentional expansion across Southeast Asia.”
Awakening a Giant
“Walk Thru the Bible is committed to impacting the Roma community in Romania and throughout Europe by offering the most practical training tools available,” says Beni Lup, Walk Thru’s Eastern Europe regional director. “We’ve trained thousands of leaders in courses on marriage, parenting, spiritual growth, and leadership.”
