Last year EDGE Ministries had the privilege of going to Uganda for 2 1/2 months. While there I saw God do amazing things in the lives of the people we ministered to. People responded to Gods call to Salvation, God healed many who were sick and set free those who were oppressed.. In simple terms, it was amazing!
But God also started another work. An unseen work. It was the work of stripping away from my life those things that were hindering Gods move. You may know what I’m talking about. Those mindsets that we tend to develop that define what effective ministry is. Those mindsets that focus on what we can do for the people, the things we should accomplish in order to have a “successful” ministry... Those habits we allow ourselves to be trapped in that lead us back into a negative, selfish, self defeating attitude when God doesn’t move the way we think he should. When its easier to simply quit than press on. You know what I’m talking about, don’t you?
But here’s the revealing truth God has been showing me every since my return from Uganda last August... THE PURPOSE... It’s NOT about the programs, the outreaches or the humanitarian projects... Rather it’s ALL about Jesus and His great commission to reach the lost for HIS kingdom. It’s about hearing God’s voice and then moving forward in obedience, even when everything seems to be going in the wrong direction. It’s about carrying out Gods plan God’s way and fulfilling God’s purpose. And, in the process of it all, learning to both enjoy as well as learn from the walk it takes to get there.
God has call EDGE Outreach to a ministry in which evangelism and missions is a vital part. To go and reach the lost not only in the U.S. but in other countries as well. Last year it was Uganda and with Gods direction and provision EDGE will return for full time ministry in Uganda soon.
But God has also opened another exciting door! God has made a way for EDGE Outreach Ministries to go the Alaskan Bush! God has opened the door for EDGE Ministries to partner with Next Level Revival Ministries in a joint effort that will allow us to minister to the INUIT INDIANS of Dillingham, Alaska.
EDGE, in partnership with NLR Ministries, will be heading to the Alaskan bush from June 14, 2013 to June 24, 2013 for 2 weeks of Ministry, Teaching and Revival!
During our time in Alaska, EDGE and NLR Ministries will be holding Adult and Youth Revival services. During the day we will be conducting Ministry Leadership Training designed to better equip those God has called into ministry. There is also a possibility that we will be able to travel to other isolated villages in the Southwest Alaska area bringing Gods Word as well as offering limited medical services.
This is a very exciting time for us at EDGE Outreach Ministries and we are looking forward to seeing what God will do, both in our own lives as well as in the lives of those God allows us to minister to.
