In the fall of 2016 I joined the School of Frontier Mission. In the three-month training, what I learned the most are how a team functions with different parts coordinating together, how to learn a new language, and how to develop a ministry from scratch. During our lecture phase, we were divided into small groups to pray together, to receive God’s Word, to discuss and conclude common vision and decide on the people groups to serve, and we learned to use our different gifts to support each other as we begin a ministries. Apart from that, we also learned how to conduct “field survey”, “design leaflets” and “recruit” before setting up new ministry. I was also encouraged from these as I consider the vision “church colonization”, as I understand more how to use my own gifts to share the Gospel, as well as to enjoy the process of serving, and to see God’s heart when He walks with us.
