"I am writing to give my endorsement to Leanne Goff
and Ministry In Action.I have known Leanne
for nearly twenty years, ten of which she
worked with me in our Teen Challenge Ministry.Today, I find few Christians that have a passion for the lost and a desire to see the lost come to Christ.I saw that passion in David Wilkerson, the founder of Teen
Challenge.I also saw the same passion in Nicky Cruz, a once violent gang member saved under Wilkerson's
ministry in the streets of New York who still preaches in the streets today.Leanne
is one of those "few" whose passion for souls has caused her
husband Ray to sell all they have on a number of occasions to go wherever the Lord would call them.Leanne
has led many of our Teen Challenge teams to Mexico as well as onto the streets as we worked together to see the lost saved.Since then she
has taken teams into places where few Christians would dare go, Cambodia, Cuba and China to name a few.Ministry In Action, under Leanne's leadership, deserves your prayers, involvement and your financial support.I can give no higher recommendation than she
being a woman of God and one of the most honest, caring Christians I know.Her
integrity and character are above reproach."
"Hi! I have been on two medical missions trips with Leanne
to two different countries.She's
a veteran at taking groups to the field.She
is highly motivated and energetic.She
has gone ahead to "spy out the land" and is very organized.She
takes teams with different ministry goals, so everyone has a chance to find a trip suitable for their talents and abilities.Leanne
is anointed and actively pursuing the Lord.She
will inspire you towards a deeper relationship with God.If you have a heart for missions, I would highly recommend going on a mission trip with Leanne
and Ministry In Action."
and MIA have been a tremendous blessing in my life.I've known Leanne
for a year and have taken two mission trips through MIA to Cuba.Her
deference to the pastors and churches in Cuba was exemplary.I personally was told again and again by people there, 'The teams that come with Leanne
are not like other teams.
...This event was organized and orchestrated by Leanne Goff, founder of Ministry In Action.
The fact that this event took place in a politically restricted country, made the planning and coordination of events more difficult and involved than under normal circumstances.Strategic planning, and dependence on God's favor, resulted in Leanne
bringing it all together for the glory of God.She
has a deep understanding of the culture and spiritual needs of the Cuban people and church leaders in that country.I know that my life and ministry has been enriched through this experience.
is obviously a woman of God, set apart to the nations.I also believe that she
is set apart from other teams that go on mission trips in several ways.We've experienced first hand her
servant leadership.As a team leader, no matter where she
is always giving to the nationals that we're connected with.Not only does the team minister to and push back the darkness through evangelistic ministry, but Leanne
is very much concerned with "refreshing the saints" that are within particular countries.
Another important character quality of Leanne
is that she
is a 'laid-down Lover' not just for the country, but for the team.She
does a great job of listening to the Holy Spirit for different team needs.She isn't a team leader who only 'barks orders', but really makes you feel a part of the team.She's
not the 'superstar', but allows Jesus to truly be the 'Superstar' and encourages each team member to allow Him to come out of them in their own way.
Having known Leanne
for a few years, I thought I knew what to expect when I recently went with the team to Cuba.I knew she
was a strong leader and that I could trust her
to hear from the Lord and lead.However, in the 12 days that we spent together on the Cuba trip, my appreciation and respect for Leanne
truly is a great leader, beyond just her
'leadership', I saw a broken, humble woman.One who admitted her
dependence upon the Lord for every step and every need.
The team had such a great attitude and were willing to 'roll with the punches', because our focus was on the Lord and His
love for these dear Cuban people.I believe that much of that was in direct correlation to Leanne's leadership through her
humbleness and her
focus being on the Lord and the Cubans, not on herself.Because of this, she
had earned -- not been given -- but earned, the deep appreciation and respect of the nationals.This is her
calling -- to go and to love and to serve, and then to come back and to share, and then to go and to serve and to love, and come back and share.....allowing His
heart to be spread through her
broken, laid-down life.
As the Lord opens the opportunities, we hope to go on other mission trips with Leanne
.We would highly recommend anyone go with her
on a trip.Her
leadership and experience can be trusted ... but, most of all her
heart for the Lord and her
sensitivity to the Holy Spirit can be trusted.She
truly walks confidently in His
love and that type of leadership is something that we would encourage anyone to submit to!!!!!
