Be transformed by the renewal of your mind. Romans 12:2

BOOK

Pastor Victor Seraya, Wayne & Janet Gassman

 
 

“I am prompted to write a quick email to thank you for spending a few minutes with me on Friday at Mission Connexion…I have been reading your book. The Lord Jesus has had me on a journey over the last several years to give up the ‘idols’ in my life and have a more intimate, abiding relationship with Him. Your book helped me realize the signs, (impatience, frustration at small inconveniences, etc.) were indicators that the biggest idol in my life was my self-centeredness. I have confessed this to the Lord and am confident He will continue to dismantle the ‘idol factory’ in my heart.”

Resolving Your Soul Struggle was birthed out of Janet’s speaking engagements. Attendees began asking: “Do you have a book? We need one.” Initially Janet intended to create about a 20 page booklet to be distributed at her meetings. However, as she began to write, a still, small voice kept whispering: “This isn’t enough. They need more.” This began a ten year process of going deeper and including additional tools and helps for each of the twelve struggles.

AFRICA
As the manuscript neared publication, Pastor Victor Seraya, a friend and Congo citizen – having escaped during persecution and currently pastor of New Season Church established for the African community – asked to read the manuscript. After completion, he sat across her at a table and looked directly at her and said: “Janet, this is what Africa needs! Will you come to Africa and teach this?” Her answer was immediately “Yes!”

Janet had the privilege of traveling to Africa in both 2018 and 2019. Teaching leaders how to care for their people and walk them through the struggles of daily life in an environment of poverty brought a new perspective and insights to her teaching. It also altered the way in which she now looks at her world.
