Feeding Back from Fiji

During BELT’s first Asia-Pacific gathering in July, participants representing 16 nations worshipped, celebrated, and strategized in the land of “Bula” (blessing). It was there BELT’s new international eldership team was blessed and commissioned, comprising of Mark Evans (Asia), Dow Saunders (East Africa), Hinrich Kraenzlin (Pacific), and Daniel Holmberg (Latin America). Already functioning apostolically, these key, seasoned leaders represent the four major regions BELT is currently serving in. The word for the gathering was “Surge” (Isaiah 51:15-16), referring to a great sudden and powerful forward or upward movement. In prayer came the image of the blowhole, where jets of water abruptly erupt when the conditions are right (high tide, rough storm at sea). So, likewise, there was a sense that God’s timely surge was coming to erupt new initiatives and fresh multiplication. BELT has been in a season of calmness – seminars have continued to run, new faces have joined our ranks, truth has been transforming lives – but we are sensing God’s surge mounting. We are seeing lightning in the distance. We believe God is wanting to birth fresh vision, new expressions, and new teams and leaders to take BELT to the next level. And as the storm stirs, and the surge rises, this ministry will move again, powerfully and abruptly. It might look messy. Our faith will be stretched and grown.  But this ministry will move in the midst of the storm. Is God calling you to the storm?
