HUGE Announcement!

It's a simple law, among several others.  It's a law of the harvest.

We always reap in a different season than we sow.

Next Generation Ministries has been a registered not for profit organization for ten years.  It is a charitable ministry committed to empowering, equipping, encouraging, and releasing the next generation.

Over the past decade, NGM has been privileged to work with dozens of young men and women ... believing in them, encouraging them, and calling them up to the potential seen in them.  Some have been under the influence of NGM for just days or weeks.  Still others for several years.  Some began their spiritual journey with us.  Others came along well on their way to their God given destiny.

Today, Next Generation Ministries is ecstatic to announce it is sending out it's very first full time missionary.

Living Large

I admit that I am a "glory" junkie.

Everyone wants to be a part of something bigger than themselves.  They want to participate in something that is of greater significance than just the confines of their own personal life.

As evidence I suggest the recently concluded 2017 World Series of baseball between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Houston Astros. Hundreds of thousands of people polarized toward one team or the other and got crazy in cheering for that team to be the best baseball team of 2017.  Personally, I'm disappointed that the Chicago Cubs were not in the Series, but take consolation in the fact that the Cubs won the Series last year and made baseball history richer for it.

The fact is that the Creator crafted human beings to live for something transcendent ... a state of being beyond and outside of the ordinary range of human experience.

Transformation

Unbelievably, the 2017 One Step Course has completed its first three weeks.

This is the second year for Next Generation Ministries to host a group of international young men and women in the 12 week, residential, intercultural, mentoring course.

The initial effort last Fall yielded results that exceeded any expectations.  Lives were changed in ways that provided foundations for building successful futures.  After all, One Step is just one step.  But the course intends for it to be such a significant step that beneficial harvesting from it will go on for years and years.

Because the course takes place in the Uganda, the Pearl of Africa, those who enroll are mostly from Uganda and Congo.  However, recruiting is also done from other nations, primarily America.  As a fledgling newborn, One Step and NGM depends on their friends and supporters to help recruit students.

This year, four students had to be turned away on the first day of intake.  Space is limited to 20 beds.  It's time to get next year's students to seriously consider enrolling.

Here is what one of last year's graduates says about her experience last year.


Adrine is just one of many enrolled last year who could recount significant changes God made in their life over the 12 week period of living together with the directors of Next Generation Ministries.

One of the passions the Hunters have embedded in their hearts is to do all they can to increase the options of the next generation of Africans in the nation of Uganda.  So many young adults, their age, in America have the resources to pay airfare and tuition for this mentoring course.  Few Africans have this option.

If you are reading this, would you prayerfully consider making a donation to the One Step Scholarship Fund?  Every bed is fill this year and we want to be selective of whose applications are accepted in 2018.

Please send your donation to NGM - One Step Scholarship, 29940 South Dhooghe Rd, Colton, OR 97017.  Be a part of increasing the options for some of the next students who will be given the skills to live life successfully and make a difference in the world.

Loving the One

A young friend of mine had her first book published and released on Amazon last week.  More about that at the end of this blog.  The following sentences were extracted from page 104:
🙶... if we don't love the single person God has put in front of us, we don't truly love.  Love is lived out with the real people whom God has sovereignly placed in our lives. Love becomes real by embracing the one.🙷
Why does this mean so much to me?  Because I work with an organization in Uganda whose mission is Changing Uganda One Person At A Time.

C.S. Lewis wrote:
🙶It is easier to be enthusiastic about Humanity with a capital H than it is to love individual men and women, especially those who are uninteresting, exasperating, depraved, or otherwise unattractive.  Loving everybody in general may be an excuse for loving nobody in particular.🙷
This is a  story about loving that one.
