Today we had two missionary organisations with us. In the morning Keith Andrews shared something of the work of Release International who are helping the persecuted church around the world.
It is never pleasant hearing of people suffering for simply following Jesus. We have it so easy here in the UK. Yes, times are changing, but we are hardly being persecuted. We should be thankful for the privileges and blessings we enjoy and pray/support those who are suffering.
In the evening we had Roger from FrontiersNI sharing with us an encouraging message of what the Lord is doing in the Muslim world. Yet there are people groups who have never heard of Jesus. We were encouraged to consider to earnestly pray for one group, which as a church, we hope to do.
Good day all round.
