STORIES OF IMPACT
Dear Friends and Supporters of Strong Disciple,
I wanted to take this opportunity once again to thank you for your tremendous financial support of this vital ministry work. Thank you for making an eternal investment in God’s kingdom-work through this ministry. Thank you for your prayers and your encouragement.
Thank you for being a subscriber to my Thoughts Provoking articles. Lives are being changed through this ministry, and the impact will resound through the generations, for as it impacts fathers and marriages, those fathers in turn impact their children and their wives.
Many around the world listen to the messages available on the Strong Disciple website, and God is moving through both the articles and the audio messages to impact lives. You help make this possible.
I hope both of these true stories bless and encourage you today.
With tremendous gratitude,
Pastor Mark Darling
“I first encountered Strongdisciple.com several years ago, and found a library of topical, biblically grounded teachings in audio files that I could listen to on my daily commute to and from work. I quickly found that Pastor Mark’s sincere and intense teaching style was breaking through the many competing noises in my life. I found common sense wisdom and truth that convicted me to my core. As a young husband and father of 4 little children, my daily attitudes and actions were not adding up to what I desired for my family and for my faith. The principles I found on Strong Disciple informed and encouraged me, and were an early impetus for me to build my own spiritual disciplines in my daily life. In raising a young family, these disciplines have reshaped the health and trajectory of where we were headed.
Very recently, a friend introduced me to Mark’s ‘Thoughts Provoking’ articles, and working from the beginning from the very first articles I have found a very digestible source of insight, that I read alongside my daily Bible reading. These articles continue to help shape my attitude and outlook, and deeply impacts how I care for my family. Thoughts Provoking is an incredible booster to the ongoing attitudes and disciplines we encounter daily in the care of our families, and has been a tremendous vehicle for self-reflection as well as a great encouragement to persevere.“

“Hi Pastor Mark,
I hope you’re doing well. I’m from Honduras and my father was Danilo who passed away several years ago from Leukemia. I can’t explain the impact your messages had on my father and my entire family. Your messages changed my father in so many ways…especially how he treated my mom. My brother also made this observation about our father: I still remember my father crying many times after your messages, the change we saw in him was drastic.
They also left an impact on my life and strengthened my faith and convictions.
I had never met a pastor so real, compassionate, and vulnerable… The impact you left on my life and family will be something I’ll be forever grateful for. You’re truly a man of God and we pray that God continues to use you and the amazing work you have done in the US and abroad.”
Sincerely, JMG – from Honduras
Friends, I give all the praise, honor, and glory to Almighty God and my Savior Jesus Christ, for it is his mighty work within me that has done all of these things.
Helping you become a Strong Disciple,
Because of Jesus,
Pastor Mark Darling
