Way Ambassadors Grow!

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.
