Then Jesus went from village to village, teaching the people. And he called his twelve disciples together and began sending them out two by two, giving them authority to cast out evil spirits (Mark 6:6-7).
A quick minute at an internet cafe in Nkwanta.
We arrived here yesterday evening, after one night in Accra and two in Amedzofe. It was an all-day drive in a jam-packed van of us, Seth’s Ghanaian team and all of our stuff, down red-dirt highway.
This morning we were up before 8 am to have breakfast at 8:30. Then we set out with Seth, a group of students at the GEMI school (Ghana Evangelical Mission Institute), and some of the pastors he mentors. It’s a cross-cultural missions experience for all of us working together. Some of us went with Pastor Benjamin (the leader of the church here in Nkwanta) to work on the construction of a church building. Asher and girls went to the vocational school to hang out with some women and kids. And a couple of us will go out doing door-to-door evangelism with translators.
Comfort zones? Who needs ’em. We’re being sent out like Jesus sent out his disciples, and still does.
Doug shared a word for us this morning from Jeremiah 31:
I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love.
With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself (verse 3).
A good word for the day.
Thanks for your prayers. Don’t stop.
