2) doing as He commanded, "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:19-20)."
We became international when Pastor Ravi Pahadiya in Rajasthan, India, joined the City of God Villages organization and is working toward establishing a City of God Villages near Jaipur. We have since added pastors in Cameroon, Kenya, Liberia and Mozambique.
The Need defined
There is a second significant impediment. Time. Daily travel occupies much of one's time, going to and from work, shopping for the family, taking children to and from school and other activities, all take up much time. Maintaining the landscaping around one's home can be a weekly drain on available time.
The third impediment is Circumstance. Many lack the support of extended family members because they live at a distance from one another. The resouces to do the work of the Lord may not be available through the community in which they find themselves. How can one reach out to many with the gospel when living in a community unsupportive of such a purpose?
City of God Villages is planning to assemble and develop such a village community addressing these needs near Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. See Page 3 for an update on our progress.
