It started just five years ago. A handful of Latvian women gathered in Riga for a first-ever Entrust women’s ministry training. Each year since, multiplying numbers of women from across the country and at least three denominations have joined or come back for more. Now led by a Latvian woman, with two of our four core courses translated into Latvian, this autumn’s training will be done almost entirely in Latvian, with only one course conducted in English. The plan is to do everything in Latvian next year. Praise God for this growth, for women being transformed as they study God’s word together, for women gaining skills and sharing those skills further and further into their spheres of influence. Ask God to work mightily in each woman’s heart this year, Oct. 17-20 and 25-27.
If you have a heart for mentoring and desire to serve the body of Christ internationally, you might be the person to serve as Entrust’s director of pastor-to-pastor mentoring. In this role, you would match pastors in the West with isolated pastors serving local churches in under-resourced areas of the world. Look into it! We’d love to dialogue with you.
NOTE: THIS POSITION RAISES OWN SUPPORT.

Partnering together to deepen the African church by Dr. John Jusu
Churches in African were long described as “a mile wide and an inch deep.” African Christians sought to develop leadership training to counteract that problem. They sought and received help from organizations who did not simply import ideas, but who worked as true partners. The result is More than a Mile Deep.

Adventures in partnership: from Jesus, Jews and Gentiles to the contemporary church by Dr. David Goodman
We need all the cooperation we can muster to fulfill the Great Commission. Our lives, history and the Bible are replete with examples of disparate people overcoming obstacles to work together toward a common cause.
If you’ve ever felt like you can’t lead a small group because you don’t know enough about the Bible or the topic at hand, here’s some great news. You don’t have to know it all! Facilitated learning, which we at Entrust love and practice, frees us all to be co-learners with our groups. Which is exactly what Ryan Higginbottom says in this fantastic article. Check it out and take heart!
