In our Articles of Incorporation, it states TIL’s purpose:
The purpose of Truth in Love shall be to educate and train the Body of Christ to make and multiply disciples of Jesus Christ within their own respective communities and cultures for the glory of God.
The word “cultures” is purposely in that statement as I wanted people to know that one of the primary desires of our hearts at TIL is to be an international ministry that equips pastors and lay persons in other countries. Today, by the grace of God, we may have our second opportunity to travel to a foreign country to fulfill the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20 below) and our TIL “great commission” as given in the purpose statement above. Please pray that the Lord’s will be done in this situation and for the necessary finances to be supplied for us to do this important work. If the Lord wants us to do it, I am very confident He will supply the finances – and He may be calling you to be a vessel to help us in this endeavor!
Matt. 28:18-20: “And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – The Holy Bible : English standard version. 2001 (electronic ed.) . Good News Publishers: Wheaton.
