He's got the whole world...
"All over the world this gospel is bearing fruit" wrote Paul, a couple of thousand years ago.
Yesterday a colleague and I met with a pastor from Sierra Leone. He was in the UK for the BWA congress, and is hanging around looking to build partnerships. He has a great vision for church planting in the villages, complete with starting primary schools. He told of the impact of the war, the preference for the cities for many Christian groups and pastors, and of what God is doing.
On reflection it was all quite inspiring, and yet I'm not sure what we can offer in many ways (the Association has financial pressures of its own).
Still always good to hear about on the ground mission, whatever the context, and be reminded that "the church is bigger than you think".
