An Encouraging Word...
I would like to make a shameless plug for you to join us for worship this Sunday morning. I think you will find the service encouraging and inspirational. This is the week that the Africa Team will fill you in on what we will be doing in Sierra Leone. The team has been preparing all summer for this trip which is now only a little more than two weeks away. Of course, some may wonder why the church and the group of seven people on the A-Team are pouring so much time, money and effort into a ten day trip to Sierra Leone.
I suppose there are many ways to answer this question, but let me say two things. First, while the A-Team’s visit to Sierra Leone will be short, it will support the ministry of Michael Turay which will hopefully continue for years to come. Second, if we hope to make a difference, we should expect to sweat a little. The week before he died, Donald McGavran, one of the key leaders at the U.S. Center for World Missions, spoke to the importance of perseverance for the cause of Christ. “Nothing easy is ever worthwhile, nothing worthwhile is ever easy.”
Come hear from the A-Team this Sunday. Celebrate what God has already done and what He may yet choose to do through our hard work and our prayers.
