ANNOUNCEMENT OF A NEW POSITION
WITH TRAINING PASTORS INTERNATIONAL (TPI)

This month TPI, under the leadership of Dr. John Balmer, Jr., is pleased to report that we are beginning a new leadership position with our mission: Associate Director of Outreach and Development, and bringing on Rev. Joel Collette immediately to fill this part-time role for TPI.

This new position will enable Joel to help TPI to expand our mission to train more pastors, develop more individuals and churches to support TPI institutes and send pastoral teams to travel to Africa and Asia to help put on Pastoral Training Institutes, help send library resources to further supplement the training of pastors worldwide, and other roles to expand the overall training needs of pastors around the world, of which 95% of these pastors have little to no training to support their pastoral ministries.

Please see my comment below in the comment section in response to this post to learn more about Joel Collette’s bio.

TPI is a faith-based mission in which all positions full-time or otherwise are supported by individual donors and churches. This new part-time position is not a salaried role, but it has been approved by the TPI Board of Directors for $1500 a month, which is subject to funds raised for it. We would like to encourage anyone or any church that would like to help support this new role at TPI.

If you are interested in supporting this new role for Rev. Joel Collette, please send a FB message to Training Pastors International through Messenger. Let us know of your intent to support Joel, how much you would like to give, and how to get in touch with you.

Our host pastor for the TPI Institute in Mumias, Kenya, Stephen Kombo of Shianda Baptist Church. He tells how they implemented the training from last year and the difference it has made. Sorry if it’s a little long, my videography skills are lacking, and editing skills nonexistent.

Testimony from Pastor Gerald Odikor of Katelenyang Baptist Chuech at our Mumias, Kenya Institute. He also works for the government since almost all the churches here can’t support their pastors. He has been translating Wally Gilmer’s sessions.

We had a good first day. It’s been exciting to see pastors from last year come again and to hear their stories. Our local and national committees have done a great job.

John Preaching the Gospel at Primary School in Kenya 2018

John and Jennifer were asked to speak at the Assembly for the Mukambi Baptist Primary School in Mumias, Kenya, where 1,552 children (ages 4 to 15 years old) attended the event. John preached the gosppel message from John 14:6, and 1,120 children responded by receiving Christ as Savior for the first time. Actually, there were an additional 400 children who initially came foward at the invitation, but these 400 returned back to their seats when John asked those who had previously made a decision for Christ before today to go back to their seats, leaving 1,120 children who made first-time decisions of faith in the the gospel for salvation. We later found out from the administrator of the school that all these children did in fact receive the gospel for the first time since very few children had previously heard the gospel before this day. What a blessing from the Lord to be involved in seeing so many children receive Christ for salvation for the first time!

Gospel Invitation at Primary School in Mumias, Kenya 2018

This is the response of the children (ages 4 to 15 years old), who received the gospel message at the Assembly for the Mukambi Baptist Primary School in Mumias, Kenya when John shared the gospel message. During this invitation, 1,120 children received Christ as Savior and you can hear them praying in unison in Swahili. We were amazed at how many kids were saved at this event. Praise the Lord!

This was one of our favorite songs, which was sung at the beginning of every day of our Ntcheu, Malawi TPI Institute at the All Saints Church of the Anglican Diocese of Upper Shire. We had 149 pastors, evangelists, and ministry leaders at this last of five TPI institutes of our African Missions Trip. We also had four pastors saved and awarded 140 certificates at the end of the week here in Southern Malawi on the border of Mozambique. Praise the Lord God for what He accomplished through our team!

2017 Kitale, Kenya Pastor Evans Wabwile testimony

On the first day of the Kitale, Kenya Institute we asked for a testimony on how last year's training impacted their lives. Pastor Evans Wabwile of Redeemers Faith Ministry shares how he now gets up at 2 am every morning to study the Bible for at least 2 hours.

John's flight out of Freetown, Sierra Leone was cancelled b/c "there was no pilot." Which means he missed the connecting flight to Rwanda and doesn't have time to get to Kigali to make the six hour drive with us to Cyangugu to start the institute on time. PTL we were able to get him on an early morning flight so he should get there just in time - if he makes all of his rerouted and new flights. If not, Pastor Wally will have to carry the load, and I may have to jump in.

Here is a video testimony from Pastor Samson P.S. Queto from our TPI Kakata, Liberia Institute July 17-21, 2017. Pastor Samson has been a part of multiple TPI Institutes, and we are thankful for the Holy Spirit's work in him over these years! We are grateful to God how He is using these institutes to train and equip pastors to lead the body of Christ for the glory of His name!

We have just completed our first TPI Institute in Kakata, Liberia with 325 pastors attending it from seven other cities and the regions of Kakata itself. This week is our third one-week institute in Kakata, and the first since the Ebola Crisis decimated many people from this area. We lost three pastors and their wives here in the Kakata region to Ebola, but God got the victory here this week as demonstrated by this testimony of one of our pastors. There were 301 certificates given out last night, and all were overjoyed for the week's success. May the Lord be praised for what He will do with these pastors, who have all testified that they have never had training before in the preparation for their sermons on Sunday.

The expansion of God's Kingdom into Satan's domain/kingdom is what God's will is all about today and why we are still on planet Earth. We are told in Rev. 11:15 at the end of time that "The kingdom of the world (Satan's kingdom) has become the kingdom of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever." Therefore, it is God's purpose now that we keep expanding God's kingdom while it is still day (Jn. 9:4) by preaching the gospel and making disciples, and thus, bringing people into the kingdom of God (Mk. 1:15). As Abraham Lincoln said, “My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God's side, for God is always right.”

Please pray for John as he will preaching twice Sunday morning and once Sunday night. He has an upper respiratory infection that is not getting better, although we have been to a doctor. Hoping to get antibiotics ASAP but it is Sat evening here so it's likely he won't have them before preaching.

India demonetisation: Banks begin swapping banned notes - BBC News

We haven't experienced chaos, but our institute here in Hyderabad has been affected because it is difficult to get what we need because vendors are not accepting 500 and 1,000 notes and the cost of goods and services have gone up since we first created the budget. This the 2nd time this year national monetary issues have come into play during our Institutes.

People queue outside banks in India to exchange banned high denomination currency notes.
