New Life, New Identity


17-B-BannerNewLifeThirteen Three sponsors Bible college students who live in restricted countries. Our desire is to see the Gospel spread in these areas. Therefore, it is vital to invest in the next generation of leaders whom God is equipping to be His instruments for this purpose.

Agus is one such student. He has decided to go to Bible college to become better equipped to evangelise with the Gospel. Agus’ background is not typical of most Bible college students: he grew up in a broken, abusive, Muslim home and, as a teenager, got involved in the drug scene as a way to escape. Agus’ conversion, just like all conversions, is a miracle and is featured in our next newsletter. Subscribe {link} to find out how God transformed Agus’ life.

Now that Agus is a Christian, he desperately wants to see other Muslims convert to Christianity. He frequently evangelises them. Because of this, Agus is verbally abused and at times even beaten.

Agus wants to grow in his knowledge of Christianity and better equip himself to be an effective evangelist.

Join us in praying for Agus. Ask the Lord to grant him many opportunities to speak the Gospel and pray he will continue to grow in faith and love for the Lord.

Elijah, a Student Pastor’s Escape.

Elijah, a Student Pastor’s Escape.



‘Elijah’ (not his real name), a graduate student from a Bible college in the Philippines, recounts a recent time when, as a student pastor, he helped his village escape from Islamic extremists.

Elijah is about twenty years old and his work is vital for the Gospel to spread in Southern Mindanao, that is in an area that is being terrorised by Islamic radicals. As a student pastor, Elijah’s days are very different to the life of a student pastor in Australia. Elijah doesn’t have a senior minister to guide and support him as he learns about the ministry. Elijah’s church did not have a pastor at all, which is why Elijah was sent there. He was trained and sent to be a pastor in an area that had no pastors due to persecution. Pastors are threatened and killed and many have had to leave for safety. Elijah’s life is at risk every day. He is willing to die for Christ so that more people can find out about Jesus.

Thirteen Three invests in the next generation of pastors because they are needed now to spread the Gospel. It is only God’s life-changing message that can bring an end to this violence and, most importantly, save them from their own destruction.
