It was a special time of instruction, teaching, and fellowship with the Holy Spirit and the Word for over 500 ISM Cell leaders from 141 countries of the world who were present at the February 2019 edition of the ISM Online Cell Leaders' Training Program with the esteemed Director, Pastor Deola Phillips.
Some of the countries represented include: Albania, Antigua and Barbuda, Bolivia, Colombia, Cook Islands, Denmark, El-Salvador, Guyana, Haiti, Pakistan, Romania, Russia, Tokelau, Saint Lucia, Wallis and Futuna, and many more.
The glorious training program commenced with a session of prayer and thanksgiving for the impacts and exploits experienced in January. Several ISM cell leaders were also given the opportunity to share their inspiring testimonies and preparations towards the upcoming ISM regional and national conferences.
The high point of the Online training program was the supersession with the Director of ISM, Pastor Deola Phillips, where she inspired and empowered the cell leaders with the teaching - "The Fourth Man".
"Joseph means ‘The one that adds, builds, preserve, maintain and sees that the body of Christ does not diminish.' The first Joseph was trusted by God to protect life the second Joseph was trusted to secure the salvation of the world by preserving the infant Jesus. The third Joseph was entrusted with the physical body of Christ, and the fourth man is likened unto the Son of God. As ministers of the Gospel, we are the fourth man and God has entrusted us with the message of the Gospel," she said.
The Cell Leaders were literally transported to a higher level of glory and effectiveness in their life and ministry as they were also charged to work with the expectation of the coming of our Lord Jesus.

I have already set my goals right and I am set for more impact all round as I win many to Christ and establish them in ministry.
