Greetings from sunny Los Angeles! The 2018 Global Leadership Conference (GLC) is fast approaching and we will be able to hear first-hand about the many miracles happening around the world such as the planting of the New Delhi International Christian Church!
The New Delhi Mission Team was led by
the valiant Raja & Debs Rajan!
At the South Asia Missions Conference in Chennai, India, on Sunday, April 22nd, the New Delhi Mission Team was formally sent out by prayer and the Holy Spirit! Then on Friday, April 27th, the 38 members of the mission team boarded a train that traveled 28 hours from Chennai to New Delhi! They arrived on Saturday at the Delhi Train Station and were enthusiastically greeted by the 18 disciples in the New Delhi Remnant Group! The next day on Sunday, God blessed them with 205 in attendance!
The New Delhi Mission Team was sent out at the
2018 South Asia Missions Conference
and was nicknamed the Spartans!
On June 2nd and 3rd at the Inaugural Service Weekend, God blessed them with 10 baptisms, 3 restorations and an attendance of 223! So since the New Delhi Mission Team landed just 36 days ago, God has added to their number 52 additions – 20 baptisms, 14 restorations and 18 place memberships from the Delhi Remnant Group! Now the New Delhi International Christian Church numbers 89 sold-out disciples! And to God be all the glory!
Debs Rajan and Brandyn Speckman - best of
friends - are both speaking at the GLC
Church Builders Workshop!
The thrilling theme for the 2018 GLC is EMPOWERED! So many Scriptures on God's power come to mind: "The Kingdom of God [has] come with power." (Mark 9:1) "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8) "I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order [to experience]… His incomparably great power for us who believe!" (Ephesians 1:18-19)
As of the end of May, 11 of the 22 on the Columbus
Mission Team, were from the City of Angels
Church including their dynamic leaders -
Coltin & Mandee Rohn!
However, on June 2nd, Joey Gregory asked
Karen Maciel to be his girlfriend! Praise
God, because now there are 23 on
the Columbus Mission Team!

highlight of the GLC!
Kip & Elena McKean are so excited that over
2,100 disciples from around the world
have committed to come to the
2018 GLC in LA!
As at every GLC, I am reminded of Jesus' words to the Apostles after the 70 had returned with joy, "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it." (Luke 10:23-24) In essence, Jesus was saying to the 12, "It is happening... The evangelization of the nations in this generation!" Prayerfully, after the GLC, we too can have a similar vision of "It is happening... again!" And to God be all the glory!
We are family... by God's amazing grace,
