Whether it is sickness, stage of life, or disaster that quarantines you to your home, isolation can be devastating. We are communal people made in the image of a communal God, but isolation can also be a gift. How do you spiritually grow and even thrive in isolation? How do you learn to spiritually self-feed?
This is great start and we hope to see more opportunities together to introduce people to the heart and way of Jesus.
Pray we can see an new level of access for Zúme in Spanish speaking countries. Cómo seguir a Jesús

The is is the year of finishing translations of Zúme! The language team just finished the German translation. This is another top internet language.
One of the major languages of the world, German is a native language to almost 100 million people worldwide and the most widely spoken native language in the European Union. German is the third most commonly spoken foreign language in the EU after English and French, making it the second biggest language in the EU in terms of overall speakers. German is also the second most widely taught foreign language in the EU after English at primary school level (but third after English and French at lower secondary level), the fourth most widely taught non-English language in the United States. Amazing!
Check out the incredible progress of the translation teams in the goal of translating the Zúme Training course into 40+ languages.
We have had our pwa mobile app quietly in beta for a while, but have now moved it to a new server and fixed many, many bugs. If you are using the mobile app for offline training, please get the new version by going to https://app.zume.training
The language team launched Zúme Training in Japanese. Japanese is spoken by about 128 million people, mostly in Japan. Japan through its media, animation and technology is a major world trendsetter and thought leader, as well as a giant cultural influence through Asia.
Japan remains one of the top unreached people groups in the world.
We have the first version of a larger communication and mobilization and prayer strategy for public viewing. The Last 100 Hours of Zume live map attempts to surface prayer points happening in the Zume community in real time.
The greater ambition with this project is to create a subscriber prayer system, so that not only can prayer warriors subscribe to pray for countries or parts of countries with real time activity lists.
Imagine leaning into prayer for Laos and seeing a live feed of spiritual activity by real people in Laos! A prayer warrior could pray forward encouragement, protection, and blessing on specific people in specific places.
We have obfuscated actual names and pulled back specific location accuracy so as to not violate personal identity, but we believe it is enough detail so that prayer efforts can lean into covering the movement of God in places with enough real time knowledge to be specific in movement bringing prayer.

It seems like every week our language teams are launching new languages. We are so thankful! We just launched Gujarati!
Gujarati has 55 million speaker worldwide and has its roots in western India.
Pray with us that God would make the connections to believers who could use the Zúme Training in their own language.
Celebrating Zúme Community leaders who published a new 98 day YouVersion plan for the commands of Christ.
Our lives should be characterized by what Jesus commanded and as His followers we should be getting others to love (and thus obey) Him as well. This is not optional or for extra credit. It is the very essence of what it means to be His follower. “…teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you…” This is what Kingdom Living is all about.
