2017 ANNUAL REPORT
WHERE JESUS IS NOT KNOWN
Global Fellowship is dedicated to taking the Gospel to places where the population is less than 2% Christian.
LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT What a year! God is always at work, and He is always good, but sometimes He really lights the burners. 2017 was one of those years.God used Global Fellowship in so many places and in so many ways that we are truly amazed and grateful for the opportunity to be a part of His work. It is so humbling to get regular messages from our field leaders telling us that God has opened doors, or that a family is on the verge of faith, or that they have just baptized 100 people. From our leader in Mexico, I receive regular updates telling me that 10 or 20 or 30 people have come to the Lord in places where the Gospel is not known. From Bangladesh, we received news that 200 people had been baptized in one day! We are a ministry of relationships; with God, our missionaries, our staff, and our donors. We pray that God will continue to show us grace and favor in these growing and fruitful relationships. Please pray for us as we seek the places where Jesusâ€™ name is not known so that we can go and proclaim His name. For His Glory, Don Oates President
