So I felt like I needed to share this.  It seems that God is totally behind this,  because last week I was given an oppurtunity to attend a church plant/discipleship training.  This training totally blew my mind it was much needed to take on this journey.  The concepts that I took away from this training are going to be so useful to me in Honduras.  The concept that we have to kill the virus was the biggest, it is that we must focus on what Jesus taught and that was find people where they are love on them see if peace rest on that person and begin to disciple them.  We must rethink the term church, instead of a building we create and bring people to we should model Christ example and be the church.  This is no new concept it is the church in Acts, and the Generate training is modeling that same concept in way that we as the a body should be multiplying Ex. 12 to 72 to 500 sound familiar it should it was the way Jesus taught the disciples to go out.  At the start of the first session they asked us to remove our wallets and phones then set them at the table leave them then go to the door.  At the door they informed us that we were not there for a training, we had been setup by church and family.  Outside was a bus and we were going to be loaded on it and taken out into Knoxville, we would be paired up and we must go out.  Just like in the Bible we were to seek people of peace for all of our needs food, housing, ect.  Obviously this did not take place but how many of us would have been prepared to just step out on faith and seek the people of peace in a strange place.  Regardless if we were comfortable or better yet if the original 12 were, they did it and the result was multiplucation.  Something to note all returned unharmed and the group grew to 72.  In this process I have not even stepped out on faith like that, and in our culture it seems so crazy to just walk in faith, but in regards to fruit produced and quality of life I dont think you could compare the to at the end of the day.  Please keep posted I am under one month to go and it is becoming very real.
