Meet Levi: A student who’s obedience to the Great Commission is leading him to the Muslim world

The first time Levi (pictured above) heard about the 10/40 Window and unreached people groups, he was shocked. While he had grown up going to church, he had never known that entire groups of people don’t have access to the gospel—and some of them were living right alongside him in Nairobi, Kenya, or even attending university with him. In church, he was never told that people who do not accept Christ will spend eternity separated from God. No one had ever shown him how he could play a role in taking the gospel to the lost. After hearing all this information for the first time from a mission mobilizer visiting his church, Levi was invited to join an Xplore study to learn more. At first, he went simply because his brothers were going, and he felt obligated. He later admitted that during the first couple weeks of Xplore, he was just going through the motions. But God used even this reluctant obedience to soften his heart. It all started during the lesson on prayer. “That’s how I will get involved,” Levi thought to himself. “I will pray for more laborers. This takes the least amount of work, and I’m still doing something.” As Levi began to pray faithfully, God began to change his heart. As he continued going through Xplore with the group, he was introduced to other practical ways to live out God’s heart for all nations.

Elizabeth also has a heart for peoples of the world who have no access to the good news of Jesus. She has always known that God had a role for her to play in reaching the unreached, but did not feel called to be a cross-cultural goer in the conventional sense. How could she get actively involved in reaching those who have not heard of Jesus? When Elizabeth heard that Weave’s BIG Story Training would be held in her city, she registered all the teachers in her school. As they learned about discipling children in God’s mission, it was obvious to Elizabeth that she had found something she was looking for. What would this look like in her context? The next school term, she added some interesting programs to the school calendar. One of these was “Nations Day” where all the kids were asked to dress in the attire of other nations. Elizabeth chose to emphasize countries with high concentrations of unreached people groups. During class, the students were taught about these countries and asked to get attire. In the process, their parents were also introduced to these countries. Elizabeth went beyond introducing the students to customs of other cultures. She also explained that some people have committed their lives to telling these nations about Jesus. She then gave the students an assignment. They were asked to write letters to people who work in or among others cultures to tell other kids about Jesus. Of course,...
