Rinse & Repeat.
Most shampoo bottles recommend doing this for the best results. When you want the best results in reaching the unreached, the best method is Train & Multiply.
At the time Willy and Vicky moved to Tacloban City, training was not anywhere on their immediate radar. God had called them to be there for the people and to share their faith in Jesus.
They quickly discovered that preparation through training was necessary as the ministry was growing at a remarkable pace.
In June of 2014, they attended training in a process called Train & Multiply (T&M). When worked properly, this method is producing much fruit. The three-day training equipped Pastors Willy and Vicky to open many new doors in Tacloban City. Instead of trying to disciple everyone, they are now able to train a team. This is similar to the way Jesus demonstrated to us, working with the twelve disciples.
In January Pastors Willy and Vicky facilitated training for 13 different people. On the one end of the spectrum, they had very highly educated individuals (a college professor, a retired regional social worker, a teacher and a retired teacher, and a couple of barangay officials).
On the other end were individuals who struggled with the learning process. What a wild range of participants. Willy and Vicky did a superb job of handling both groups well. Excitement pulsated through the room when people shared their vision maps.
Willy and Vicky are presently working with groups in seven different areas. They could have 7-8 more areas if these lay people follow through on their visions.
Train & Multiply has been instrumental in One Mission Society and their partners starting 25,565 new worshiping groups in 2014. Pastors Willy and Vicky are a true testament to what might happen if we could mobilize ordinary people to go out into the harvest fields.
