“One day a man who had a partial paralysis in half his body arrived at the place where fellowship is made. He had heard from the Way Ambassadors and asked for help in receiving healing. We immediately prayed for him, and at that moment his face, eyes, and hands regained their mobility.”
“Through the program, I learned to serve others with the simplicity of the Word. I was even able to minister the Word to my family from a distance.”
“A young woman who had been diagnosed with a severe deviation in the spine, and had been told by doctors that she needed an urgent operation, believed and received total healing. By understanding the Word, she declared, ‘I am healthy because of what Jesus Christ accomplished for me, and when I did the examinations, the doctors confirmed what I believed’.”
“As an ambassador, I understood that I was indeed the representative of the Lord Jesus Christ to do the works he did. I remember a young footballer who was about to go to training and who refuted any offer to hear the Word, but then was totally transformed when I directed our conversation to II Timothy 2:5 in the Bible, which defines some characteristics of an athlete. His attitude changed immediately, and he wanted to discover even more. In the end, I helped him get born again.”
“Today I am experiencing personal spiritual growth. The faces that radiated from listening to the spoken Word was one of my motivations. I gained confidence, and I was able to understand more of the impact of the Word of God on people’s lives. I learned to open conversations in order to witness the truth, and the results were the destruction of the adversary’s works in people’s lives.”
“It may seem like our culture is trending away from God, that moving the Word is impossible at times, but this program gave us great hope and vision for the Word moving in this generation. When we believe to help people with God’s Word, He will make it happen.”
The Ambassadors of the Way Outreach Program provides a framework for personal spiritual growth in the broader context of a team that consists of other Word-centered men, women, and young people. The framework includes quality time in the Word each day, time in prayer each day, fellowship with like-minded, believing team members on a daily basis, speaking God’s Word in the local community, and building home-based fellowships by inviting all who show an interest.
I Believed God to Witness
The highlight of my tenure was when I was at work one day and believed to witness to someone who wanted to grow with God and take the Power for Abundant Living Today class. A young man came into the store and asked for my help finding an item. After I helped him, I started to walk away but knew God wanted me to witness to him. I built up the courage to say, “Do you want to know God?” He was shocked and said, “I prayed this morning to find a place where I can worship God and grow with others who are on fire for God.” I tried to hold my excitement as I gave him all the details about fellowship and the class that we were running next week. He came to fellowship the next day and signed up for the class later that week. He has now taken the class twice and looks forward to continuing his journey with God and the fellowship as he strives to be in the Advanced Class in 2024.
The Adventure of a Lifetime with God
God has helped me grow in my understanding of God’s Word. I have especially enjoyed being a part of the Foundational Classes that we ran. Every time I took the class, it was like seeing it with fresh eyes. I have greater believing than I ever had before. I have enjoyed getting up early and starting my day off with God. Every day goes smoother that way! I am more of a blessing to all those around me, and speak the Word with more boldness! God wants everyone to know about Him! As a team, we have lived God’s love and helped each other grow through the program. This has been the adventure of a lifetime with God and this team. I’m grateful for having the time of my life in service to God. I have grown from video gaming to wanting to rescue people from darkness to God’s loving arms.
Speaking Boldly Is Now a Lifestyle for Me
God worked in me to overcome my shyness and witnessing to strangers. I used to be very shy. I would not talk to strangers. As a Way Ambassador, I saw how God worked in me (Philippians 2:13) to open up and talk to strangers when out witnessing. It took me some time and practice to get my witnessing technique to evolve. With the help of my teammates and believers from the Branch, I have grown in this area. I pray to boldly speak to people while I am out witnessing (Ephesians 6:19,20) that I may open my mouth boldly and speak the mystery of the gospel (the good news of the Mystery). Speaking boldly is now a lifestyle for me. Before, I was anxious to speak to strangers. Now I have overcome my fear. I speak to people about God and His Word easily. When I am out witnessing to people, I know God helps me know who to talk to and what to say, because He works in me. I am now comfortable speaking to strangers. As a result three people I witnessed to came to fellowship. One person, who a teammate and I witnessed to, came to fellowship and took the class. The Way Ambassador program was a successful program for me. I overcame my fear of speaking to strangers. My witnessing technique is getting better and better each day. I am growing as a Way Ambassador.
