Within Reach 2023 Calendar and Prayer Guide – December


Within Reach

Are you ready to read amazing stories of what God is doing around the world?


Healthy churches are changing communities. Lives are being transformed by the Gospel. Let us continue to pray for the nations together.

As we move towards our goal of reaching 25 Million Disciples for Christ, we know that empowering existing believers is just as crucial as sharing the Gospel with those who have never heard it. Healthy churches must be filled with healthy disciples who are fully equipped to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with others.

This prayer calendar and journal highlights just a few of the people and projects that are blessed by your giving.

We hope you are touched by reading these testimonies from our ministry partners around the world.

Reaching the World for Christ, One Disciple at a Time

Darongpon Pre-Elementry School


When Darongpon Church was founded in 2012, the pastor began planting even more house churches to create a larger network of believers in the area. But his work wasn’t always going to be easy.

Partnership between Christian ministries is such an important part of spreading the Gospel. Miracles can happen when leaders put their complete trust in the Lord. When another ministry came to the area and began to pull members away from Darongpon house churches, the pastor was devastated because he had worked so hard to establish them. But this situation helped the pastor create a new strategy to bring people to Jesus: he established Darongpon Village of Hope. This facility is a large, multi-faceted Christian center housing a church, orphanage, and primary school. It ministers to parents and the local community, assuring them that Christian education will develop their children’s character with the seed of the Gospel. Plus, the school holds summer camps to teach children about Jesus, supplement their English skills, and develop knowledge in other interesting subjects. The school is also used to hold gatherings for church-related activities, such as Christmas plays, or as a training center for pastors if needed. What a blessing it is to see one facility bring so much transformation to the community.

How is the Lord guiding your next steps?

Have you thought about God’s will for your life? As we prepare to move into a new year, think about how you can ask the Lord for his guidance for your life. Allow Him to show you the way. Sometimes it can be hard to obey (just think of Jonah)! But remember that God has an incredible plan in store for you, it just requires trust and faith.
