And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Matthew 9:35-36
From these verses we see three components for the LDI ministry.
We desire to provide the necessary practical and Scriptural education for daily faith and practice to ministry leaders and all believers through published materials, classes, online courses and through the traditional conversational teaching approach found in Anatolia (today’s Turkey) culture.
We desire to equip the body of Christ in God's kingdom for daily service and worship in ways that fit their local context for respectful dialogue.
Acts 2 reminds us:
“They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. ...
And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.”
By sharing our lives and experience we encourage and walk with those in the body of Christ who are having difficulties with their applicatio of their faith in their local contexts.
