Look at the nations and watch – and be utterly amazed. For I am going to do something in your days that you would not believe, even if you are told. Habakkuk 1:5
The original context of this verse is the rising of world power, Babylon. In our days there is a power on the rise, youth power. Youth is reshaping the world and history according to what they believe.
Praise the Lord, that the 4/14 Window is also capturing the potential power of youth in the church. The Second Mountain was launched. If in the First Mountain, the thrust is to raise awareness of leaders on the strategic importance of reaching children for Christ. In the Second Mountain is to mobilize youth as partners in mission through discipleship making movement of their next generation. The vision is that there will be no single child grows up without a nurturer, someone who walks along-side him/her as disciple maker.
The launching of the Second Mountain was officiated in the Leadership Retreat on April 19-20 and the first step to climb the Mountain was taken through the implementation of the first Asia Pacific Youth Congress. This is what God is doing in our days, raising youth power around the world with a passion to disciple their next generation, thus fulfilled Matthew 28:18-20.
