Bruce & Carol Ingram
ACTION International

We thank the Lord for ACC and your partnership with us in Christ’s work worldwide.

Thank you for your prayers for Carol’s shoulder replacement surgery on January 23. The surgery went as planned. Now her shoulder recovery is making good progress as we trust God for complete healing.

80% of rural pastors internationally have no Bible School training. Bruce screens and then mentors international church leaders with Bible lessons. He also recruits,­­­­ trains and places North American teacher/mentors with an international church leader to train and then provides ongoing support and coaching.

Disciple Making Movements

We are learning about Disciple Making Movements (DMM). We have been a part of two such movements within ACTION. One was in India after the persecution in Odisha state. It began with two pastors and one church of 100 people. There are now over 20,000 believers with 16 Bible schools with outreach ministries into 12 unreached people groups. The most recent has been in Malawi, Africa. What started with Bruce and a national leader, now after three years, has multiplied to 750 mentor groups.

We have observed some common foundations for DMM:

  1. Recognition that the work is God’s and must be soaked in prayer of faith (John 15:7-8).
  2. The centrality of Christ and the gospel of salvation from sin and eternal life (Romans 1:16-17).
  3. Bible discussion with obedience of faith (Matthew 28:18-20).
  4. Transformed hearts sharing the love of God with others to the glory of Christ (John 15:12-13).
  5. Peer support, reporting/accountability of life and ministry (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12; Luke 10:17ff).
  6. Multiplication of disciples is the priority; not addition. Sharing our testimony and what is learned from God’s word with others (Acts 1:8, 2 Timothy 2:2).
  7. Outpouring of the Holy Spirit. The Biblical foundations are like the sails of a sailboat waiting for the wind of the Spirit (Acts 2:17, Zechariah 4:6).

Pray For:

  1. Complete recovery for Carol’s shoulder.
  2. Village Bible Schools to start in Malawi in March.
  3. National leaders and North American mentors for more DMM
