I’m often encouraged by our church’s reach. Even though we’re not a huge group of people, we connect with many people around the world. It was great to hear last week from Janine as she shared with us her recent visit to Simon & Alison and the boys (some of our overseas missionaries) and others living in Japan who were part of our church family here.
Over the next couple of weeks it’d be great to pray for Siobhan and Suzy Porter as they visit missionary friends in India to encourage them.
And I’m looking forward to hearing on Sunday morning from Paul & Esther, who lead our Friends of Friends missional community. They are engaged in local mission with a global reach, as they work with people who have come from many nations to this place. Some of those go back out from here across the globe. It’s great to be part of that picture as we share together in God’s work.
