Again, if the internet holds, I’ll live blog this session, so apologies for spelling mistakes etc.

After a video, David Yoo from Korea introduced the session on Discerning the will of Christ for 21st century world evangelisation by leading us in prayer.

We then watched a powerful video reminding us of the many people around the world who need to hear the gospel, and how we each, personally, can do something to help share the Bible, especially the Oral Story, with the hundreds of millions of people who need to know a Christian.

Paul Eshleman is starting the session picking up from John Piper’s session on Wednesday and the need to pick up both the challenge of suffering now, and suffering in eternity – we can’t afford to choose one over the other.  He starts by sharing a story of a young lad from Iran who was miraculously healed from burns in a fire, and later watching the Jesus DVD says that it was Jesus who rescued him – fantastic testimony!

In terms of world evangelisation today we need to ask where is the church not present and what are we going to do about it?  It is absolutely wrong that there are areas of the world that haven’t been reached, we represent 5 million churches, 12 million Christian workers.  An American leader talked about sending people to Latin America, Paul challenged him on why when they’re growing so fast, he said they were invited, Paul said the most neglected people don’t know who to invite – we need to focus on that.  Tim Keller reminded us that many of these people are in cities, it’s not just a small villages with huts.

Seven key elements of the Great Commission:

  1. Scriptures
  2. Engaging the unreached people groups
  3. Evangelism
  4. Oral Learners
  5. Church planting & presence
  6. Prayer & unity
  7. Compassion ministries

Assumptions in this:

  1. Evangelism is not enough, disciple-making is what it’s about
  2. Concentrating on where the church is not
  3. Every part of the world is called to go to every part of the world. No country is exempt from sending and no country is exempt from receiving.
  4. We believe that living out our faith is an absolute imperative. Our message is hollow if our lives do not back up the words we speak.
  5. Loving one another and working together should be the standard of the Church. God has given each person and organization unique gifts and callings. We should honor those callings. But all of us can give some percentage of our time and resources to work together on the priorities of the whole Body of Christ.

86% of Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus don’t know a believer – that’s our fault.


Scripture translation should be our number 1 priority.  Out of 8,000 languages only 448 have the whole bible, another 1185 have the New Testament, 843 groups have a portion of Scripture.  There are 2252 languages that have not one verse of scripture and no-one is planning on going to them.
