Nepal 2019 Trip Final Letter
I have been back from Nepal for 2 weeks and have been reflecting on my time there. One theme of my teaching over the past 35+ years has been "multiplicative ministry." Multiplicative ministry is that training aspect of Jesus' ministry, when he is focused on reproduction of his own ministry in his disciples, calling them to go and do likewise. One key passage for this strategy is Mark 3:7-19, where you see Jesus teach the many, call together a selected group (those whom he desired), appoint the 12 as apostles, and rename the 3, his innermost group. I reflected on this because, during my time in Nepal, I had times of influence that seemed multiplicative and satisfying in inverse proportion to the size of the group to which I was ministering:
