Sometimes, we just don’t get it.

In the history of God dealing with his people, we have evidence of God’s people being willing to suffer because they fail to respond to his pleas and direction. The revival that takes place under Samuel is such a time. In a time of national defeat, spiritual decline, and communal wandering, the children of Israel finally came to a place of brokenness before God. But, it didn’t come easy.

According to the testimony of Scripture, it took the children of Israel some twenty years to get their hearts in sync with the Spirit of God.

A worldwide diaspora has brought ethnic and cultural groups from all over the world into America's cities. Believers in these immigrant enclaves are committed to bringing the Good News of the Gospel to the people of their home countries.

Many translations of "Fight the Good Fight of Faith" have come about because of this. Consider the translation projects listed here, which were made possible by diaspora Christian leaders living in our country. Pray with us that God will use these resources and these connections to train Christian leaders around the world.
