At GCLI God really inspired and challenge me to actually mobilize the existing Churches in reaching the unreach with more strategy. GCLI has also helped ‘powerboost’  my spiritual life. – Augustine Masih, National Leader, Aastha India Mission, India

The Lord opened up my eyes towards the great commission. I was charged up to Go! And I am now dedicating my life to pray for the lost, on top of discipleship for the great commission. – Stephen Kapere, Executive Director, Youth For Charity Missions International (Yofochm), Uganda
