NSD Mission Training Center will be providing a spiritual training as a basis for mission to pastors and lay persons inside the NSD territory.
The spiritual training includes prayer, meditation and researching the Bible truth. For this spiritual training, people need an experience of wilderness. They need a personal sanctuary such as private prayer room to meet God personally just like Jesus did.
NSD leaders are praying for this. The ultimate goal of this training Center is to preach the gospel with the power of the Holy Spirit not only inside the NSD territory but unto the ends of the earth. Please pray for this ministry.
