LPU Press Room | October 4, 2021

Global Vision week kicked off with an amazing chapel led by guest speaker Yaseer Handall, the FMI representative of missions for the Hispanic District. Yaseer emphasized that God not only wants to open doors of opportunity for His people, but He also wants to walk through those doors with them. Students then explored international ministry opportunities at our Global Impact Fair. Some of the partners and opportunities represented were Foursquare Missions International, Foursquare Disaster Relief, Foursquare Missions Press, One & All Mexico Trips, Surfing the Nations, and the 2022 Global Life teams. Students were able to sign up with these organizations to partner with what God is doing around the globe.

The second day of Global Vision Week began with another fantastic chapel session. WAM students teamed up to bring the student body Spirit-filled worship in six different languages. It was an amazing demonstration of how powerful heaven will, people from all nations praising God together.

Aaron Hunter, FMI Global Associate Director for the Americas region, brought the message that morning, emphasizing that God is opening doors that we aren’t expecting. Our job is to put prayer first and embrace the uncomfortable because sometimes God uses that pain to show us the open doors. Aaron then spent time eating and sharing with students at lunch in the Café.

Wednesday night, we had our Zoom panel with Danielle Aguilar, Natalie Werking, and Jonathan Hall. Over 70 students joined the call to learn how each person’s organization is helping build and steward God’s kingdom.

Throughout the week, ten missions-minded professionals guest-lectured in classes within our various departments. We closed out the week with a dynamic evening of worship and intercession for the nations. Global Vision Week 2021 was a powerful reminder of the Open Doors that God is creating amid the world’s chaos.
