Seaside

Cole Elbridge* developed a highly effective church planting strategy in the wake of a tsunami in South Asia. On one of the rare nights Elbridge stayed in a hotel—to shower and charge his phone—a man knocked on his door. “God is sending me,” the man announced. Elbridge had just developed the first lesson of his church-planting strategy. He taught it to the man, who was a fisherman from a community that was devastated by the tsunami. Elbridge told him God had called him to be a fisher of men. The fisherman used the lesson he learned to minister in communities. *Name changed for security (IMB photo)

Goat farming

When he first came to the mission field, Cole Elbridge* served as an agriculturalist in Sub-Saharan Africa. A national partner invited Elbridge to start a Bible study. Initially, Elbridge hesitated, as his primary focus had been on agriculture and he didn’t feel confident enough to lead a Bible study. Shortly after the Bible study started, 21 people committed their lives to Christ. Elbridge was surprised. The people said they saw him living out his faith day to day in their community and they wanted to follow the God he followed. After the unexpected death of a local girl who was not a Christian, Elbridge and other believers realized the urgency of sharing the gospel because time is never a guarantee. *Name changed for security (IMB photo)
