Paul and Jean Goodner work in the United States mobilizing God’s people for missions. They have been ACTION missionaries since 2010, and spent the previous decade serving in Eastern Europe. Paul also travels worldwide, teaching and training national pastors and leaders in evangelism, discipleship, and church planting.
Partnering with a ministry called Cambodian Ministries for Christ, Paul recently trained Cambodian pastors and lay workers in the Battambang and Siem Reap regions. He taught on the importance of discipleship and how to help new disciples form small cell groups that will ultimately develop into new churches. During this training he emphasized the importance of evangelizing new groups of people, training new disciples, and planting small churches.
One of the trainees from Battambang said, “This is the kind of training we need: not learning just to read what the Bible says, but learning to do what Christ commands us to do.” Paul said that, “It was very exciting to visit two of the small new churches in order to see what the Lord has accomplished in just a few years. Plans are in the works for more training in the future. Please pray that God will continue to use us in His vision for Cambodia.”
