Greetings in 2022! 2021 has come to a close and we give God all the glory for how He has blessed and used T2S to further the Great Commission around the world. T2S is now working in 7 West African countries and in Pakistan. At the heart of T2S is the focus on training national diciples within their local churches to be missionaries to their people. Equipping and training every disciple who desires to be obedient to our Lord's command to go, baptize and teach/train. As they go these faithful trainers are taking the Gospel to hard to reach places within their own context which always has the best results. These brothers and sisters are the best missionaries to their people. T2S is determined to train national disciples around the world to finish the task of taking the Gospel to all people and places as the Lord provides the resources. Here are just a few testimonies from the field in the trainers own words.
From Pakistan, “Thank you so much dear brother, that you believe us that we can learn this beautiful words of God, such a beautiful training, we learn much more through this training, this training make us able to teach others with confidence.”
"Keep Praying for us"
The trainers in Pakistan 2021report.

From Sierra Leone, "Brother my spirit is overwhelmed with joy each time I see how this tool is working
From Ghana, "We thank God for the Tree of Life/T2S it has blessed us all in the ministry we always thank God for Tree of Life for saving many souls here in Ghana."
For 2021 the trainers report 1,431 souls who have given their lives to Jesus, 143 baptisms, 103 additional cells group, and 27 new church plants.
The picture above is a master trainer from Niger baptizing a new believer. What the Lord is doing through these trainers around West Africa is just amazing. Niger is a very difficult place to do ministry but the Lord is using His church to multiply. Below is a year ending report sent from a trainer in Niger in his own words.
"54 baptized people, 30 Tree of Life master trainers, 34 house churches have been planted ... Now we are organizing ourselves so that I can transmit them the last modules that I have just finished. The master trainers are Pastors and Evangelists who are in the bush and I assure you, They are doing a remarkable job in the center area of our country ... Keep us in prayer so that the Lord can help us especially with the work materials and also for the organization of the last Tree of Life training with the 30 master trainers!"
Thank you all who have prayed and given to T2S to allow us to be a part of what the Lord doing among the nations.
"For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea" (Habakkuk 2:14).
As we have look back on what the Lord has done in 2021 through T2S around the world we rejoice and give thanks. We thank all those that have prayed and have given toward taking the Gospel around the world and locally. We now look forward to the new year. We ask that you continue to pray for T2S as we plan to continue to expand the work into East Africa. Evangelical leaders in Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya have asked for the training after seeing the training from one of the trainers from Sierra Leone. For those who don't know T2S for stragetic purposes have split West Africa into two sections, French speaking and Engish speaking. Through the training of master trainers both English and French speaking, we are able to send these trainers to train disciples within the Evangelical churches throughout Africa. Training local missionaries within the local church to take the Gospel throughout their community is at the heart of what we do. T2S is committed to do its part in finishing the task of the Great Commission around the world and within our own community here in the States. We are thankful for the master trainers locally that have continued to to train disciples to make diciples in their churches and outside their churches. If anyone is interested in having this training within their church please contact us and we will assist you in every way possible.
Please pray as the training in Liberia and Ghana finish up this month. Pray for safe travel and negative Covid tests. Those being trained in both counties are being very faithful and are multiplying. Please pray that this will continue.
Please pray the Lord will provide resources to take the training to Tanzania. The training will take three trips over about a year. It will take $18,000 to complete this. This amount will cover all expenses including airfares. Where the training goes the gospel goes.
Please pray for the protection for all the trainers across West Africa as they are faithful to go, baptize and teach/train disciples to make disciples.
Please pray for openess here within the local churches to begin the training to help equip those local churches to be missionaries in their communities.
Please pray for partners who will financially support this ministry monthly.
