We desire to be a people that Love God, Love people, and Make HIM known. Through missions and everything that is done here we desire to proclaim Jesus and Him alone because He is the only One that can turn this world right side up. 

 

    No, You're Not Leaving!

    Posted by Shaun Greeson on Monday, September 17, 2018 @ 4:26 PM

    It has been an interesting few days here in North Carolina. Hurricane Florence has dumped 40 inches of rain in places along our East Coast and around 6 to 8 inches here in Burlington, NC. My executive pastor and I were supposed to leave for Bangladesh, Nepal, and India on September 13, but because of the weather all flights were cancelled. Needless to say, we are still here in North Carolina. I know that God is in control and I know that we will eventually get to meet our partners on the other side of the world soon!

     

    We are currently partnered with Everest Base Camp Outreach, which is a Seminary Bible College in the Nepal, and they have classes that begin in October. Please pray for them as they begin their new year preparing pastors to share the gospel. We also work with a children’s home in Nepal (I am unable to disclose the name) but there are over 25 children in the home that are hearing the gospel and carrying Jesus to the schools they go to. Pray for them as they have a major need for a well to be dug on their property to help with water issues. In India we are partnered with 2 children’s homes, with a total of 35 children, that are hearing the good news of the gospel and carrying it to their families and into their schools.  We are also personally involved with one pastor that is planting churches and preaching the good news across India. When we get to go to India in January we will be able to sit down and talk with the President of an Evangelical Association that has a goal of planting over 100,000 churches in India. Wow! What a goal for the Kingdom! 

     

    Pray for us as we continue to pray and plan for the new trip and as we continue to encourage our partners. They were excited to get to put faces with names, as were we. It is disheartening to have to cancel, but God has a plan and He is in control.

    Anna, Back from France

    Posted by Shaun Greeson on Monday, September 17, 2018 @ 3:20 PM

    For those of you that do not know Anna Briggs, she is a member at The Lamb’s chapel, and we helped her get to France for a mission trip. Having worked with her on a mission trip before, I can say that she is one of the hardest workers I know. Her work is not just for work sake, it is for the Kingdom. She loves Jesus and she loves stepping out of her comfort zone and doing things that help her grow in her faith in Jesus Christ. Stepping out in faith is exactly what she did this past month as she went to France on a mission trip and had the opportunity to share her faith through street evangelism, singing, playing the piano, sharing her testimony and ministering in churches. She had many opportunities to work with children to share how God was working in her life and also hear from a pastor and his wife wisdom about living out your faith. In the world we now live, many would think, why France? France has become a nation that was more Christian in the 90’s than now. Because of the influx of anti-Christian ideologies and political shifts, much like the United States, France is now at an all-time low in those that believe there is a God and at an all-time high  in those that say there is no God or claim to be not religious at all. So for Anna, France was an open door to share her faith. With Catholicism making up most of the Christians in France, there was also great opportunity to share about the grace of Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God” This is truly the message of the gospel and Anna had a great time sharing. Please pray for Anna as she is now home and looking forward to what God has in store for her next.

    Mr. Frank's House

    Posted by Shaun Greeson on Monday, September 17, 2018 @ 3:18 PM

    The pictures above may be offensive... but before you take offense take a moment to read and find out the story behind the dirtiness. Mr. Frank lives in a suburb of Charlotte. There were 13 students and 2 adults working on this site this past week as The Lamb’s Chapel  served with Mission Serve. Mr. Frank was dirty and really did not care much for our students being in his house. You see Mr. Frank was a hoarder and did not have a working bathroom which made for unsanitary conditions and a really, really dirty house. On the inside, Mr. Frank was lonely. He was broken and embarrassed. I had to explain to the students what they were about to see because no one, and I mean no one, had ever seen anything like Mr. Frank’s house. What amazed me is that the conditions really did not matter to the students, they loved on Mr. Frank just as if they had known him all their lives. They cleaned his kitchen, they cleaned his bedroom, they took trash upon trash upon trash to the dumpster, they helped work on a bathroom that really should have been condemned. By the middle of the week Mr. Frank’s heart was broken that these students had come from all over the United States to unite together to help him. My wife heard him say “Time flies when you are busy.” What Mr. Frank was saying is that he was lonely and the students being in his home and around him made time just go by so fast. These students from all walks of life and from different states were truly the hands and feet of Jesus this week. They loved their neighbor as their self this week (Mark 12:31). They did it to the least of these this week (Matthew 25:40). I know that as you look at these pictures your mind may immediately go to how can someone live like this? I can promise you that my mind did the same thing. The second thought that ran through my mind was my sin was that dirty and Jesus Christ washed me white as snow and Jesus didn't mind giving His all for me. As dirty and unsanitary as Mr. Frank’s house was, my heart was dirtier. I am so thankful for the opportunity to serve and for the way these student’s hearts have been changed. As you look at the pictures don’t forget that there are people in your backyard and your city that need to be loved and need someone to care. I pray as you see these pictures you are not offended, but that the pictures are a motivation for you to ask God what is next for you and how you can get involved in what God is doing to help others!

     

    Pictures Worth A Thousand Words

    Posted by Shaun Greeson on Monday, September 17, 2018 @ 3:16 PM

    If you take a look around our Airport Campus you will notice a little bit of color on the walls. It's not a fresh coat of paint that is adding color, but pictures... photographs. These pictures are not just any pictures, they are pictures from around the world of different areas and from organizations that we support through missions here at The Lamb's Chapel. Our goal is to Love God, Love people, and Make Him Known. Whether it is through Samaritan's Purse, With Open Eyes, Life Outreach, or in the countries of Costa Rica, Honduras, the Dominican Republic, or even right here at home, we are making Jesus Famous. When you walk around campus and see a picture of young children reading The Greatest Journey (from Samaritan's Purse) or find yourself looking at a photo of a beautiful bridge in Costa Rica that was literally built to carry the gospel, you can rest assured that the gospel is going out to the nations. I also hope that as you walk by these pictures that you take a moment and pray for those that are working diligently to share the gospel in the most remote parts of the world. What a great opportunity we have to pray for those we do not know and we may never meet until we see them in heaven! Prayer is the greatest asset when it comes to missions. Prayer activated faith to start the church in Acts and prayer opened the prison doors for Peter to walk out in Acts 5. Prayer is what it takes to progress in the battle of carrying Jesus to all the world. Join me in prayer as you walk around campus and see the places and people that we are working with to bring everyone to the only one who can offer any hope at all…Jesus. 

     

    Healing In Jesus Name

    Posted by Shaun Greeson on Monday, September 17, 2018 @ 3:14 PM

    There is excitement in the air! One of the most fascinating opportunities we are involved with as a church is in Honduras. Jesus healed and He shared, and we at The Lamb’s Chapel have a responsibility to do the same according to God’s Word - in our circles and around the world. In Honduras we have the opportunity to heal and to share our faith as we partner with a medical clinic in Siguatepeque. There are many clinics in Honduras that are privately owned and funded by private partners - many of these partners are churches and faith-based organizations. In many of these clinics there is either no or minimal cost to the patient. The Lambs Chapel supports the clinic in Siguatepeque and everyone who comes as a patient receives medicine and treatment for only $5. This clinic is not at all the “typical” medical clinic that we are used to seeing in the United States. This clinic has one doctor. This clinic has one bed. This clinic has one ultrasound unit and it is hand-held. It has shelves stocked with medicine and supplies and it is running out of space. They are out of room, however we are working to build them a new clinic to give them the space to grow and to meet needs like never before. The Lamb’s Chapel is a part of the healing hands of Jesus Christ as we aid in building this new clinic and offer support for years to come. This new clinic will allow for Honduran’s to get the treatment they deserve and to hear the good news of Jesus in the process. Additionally, I forgot to mention that the Doctor is also the wife of a pastor that we support! God is doing amazing things in and through them. Please continue to pray for them and the building process. The clinic is supposed to be finished in a few weeks. Check back to see the clinic finished and in operation.

    Places to Go, People to See

    Posted by Shaun Greeson on Tuesday, July 10, 2018 @ 9:18 AM

    There are many places that I have dreamed of going - India and Nepal are two of those places. Over the past several months India, Nepal, and areas surrounding these countries have begun to burden my heart. This burden has not been brought on by mudslides, earthquakes, or any other natural disaster, although they have had their share of troubling times. This burden was created by looking at photos of children’s homes and faces of individuals that we as a church support. The Lord has caused a love to grow in my heart for each of these individuals I have never met before, encouraging me to pray for them daily . The ministry in India and Nepal is so great. According to those we support, God is breaking chains, knocking down walls, and changing lives like never before. It brings my heart so much excitement to see how the Holy Spirit is moving individuals who were once serving many gods to turn to the One True God. I have been moved by photos of people praying freely to the Lord with their hands raised up to Him and encouraged by the videos of them singing praises. Although I cannot share many of the pictures, I do have a few that will prick your heart. As you look at these photos remember you do not have to know who or what you are praying for, for God already understands your heart and your prayer. God knows what the needs are in India and Nepal. He knows the specific needs of those that we support and Scripture says Jesus will pray on your behalf according to Romans 8:26-27. “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans.And he who searches our hearts and knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.” All I ask you to do is allow the Spirit of God to speak to your heart and pray for these that you have never met. I also ask that you be in prayerful intersession for Phil, Patt, Melinda, and I as we plan to go to India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. On this trip we are going to be able to put faces with the names we have been supporting and praying for. Thank you in advance for your prayers for the trip and for the ministries going on in places unknown to most people. Thank you for allowing God to use your heart and your prayers to affect change all over the world.

    Prayer Points to Prepare Your Heart

    Posted by Shaun Greeson on Thursday, May 31, 2018 @ 2:45 PM

    What a great opportunity we all have as believers to pray. Prayer is the greatest tool we have as believers. Prayer creates and facilitates an atmosphere of success. That is why within the area of missions we need prayer warriors. Without prayer missions would cease to exist.

    At The Lamb’s Chapel we are all about prayer and making prayer a priority when it comes to everything we do. In missions there are many prayer points. Please take a moment and follow the links below to see how you can pray for the the nations.

    Prayer Cast

    Joshua Project

    Open Doors

     

    Pray with us Psalm 90:17 "Let the favor of the Lord be upon us, and establish the works of our hands, yes establish the works of our hands."

    Mission Moment May 2018

    Posted by Shaun Greeson on Thursday, May 24, 2018 @ 2:49 PM

    With Open Eyes is a ministry that we partner with in a magnificent way for God's glory. It is the heart of With Open Eyes to see the gospel proclaimed in every nation. I just want to take a moment and share with you some of the great things that we are able to do through With Open Eyes. There are many unreached people groups throughout Africa and Asia and With Open Eyes have been working hard to share the Good News to as many unreached groups as possible this year already. 

    Since January 1, 2018 despite the government in Rwanda shutting down more than 700 churches, the church grew by 15,707 new believers. There were also 4 new churches planted.

    According to the last update received from With Open Eyes, 2,246 new believers were added to the church in Kenya and Sudan and in Rhino an refuge camp, there were 4 new church plants established. There is a total of 37,503 people that have made decisions to follow Christ and 10 new churches started across 14 countries. 

    With Open Eyes does all of this through equipping pastors with bicycles, motorcycles, and modes of transportation so that the pastors can get to where they need to go with the Gospel. In the areas where With Open Eyes works there is a lot of danger. It is not uncommon for pastors to be arrested and even beaten for what they are teaching. 

    One way you can help is to become a prayer warrior for With Open Eyes mobile messengers.

    Prayer Points: 

    1. Pray for the gospel to be accelerated through the mobile messengers. 

    2. Pray for those that become new believers to grow in their faith and stand strong in the face of the adversary. 

    With Open Eyes is just one great organization we partner with. Check back with us or browse through our site to see how you can become involved in what we are doing across the world.
