6 months ago I was just stepping off a plane returning from Malta. A small group of young adults came from all over the world to seek the Lord together on a tiny island in the middl of the mediterrainian ocean.
I had the immense privilege of teaching through 1&2 Corinthians and the Pastoral Epistles (1&2 Timothy and Titus.) I would say it's impossible to study these books without highlighting Paul's heart for missions. A heart that was proactive in seeking areas of opportunity. A heart willing to go out and reach the lost. A heart willing to sacrifice self in the service of others.
Fastforward to today and I am blessed to see one of the students is emulating that heart. Hannah Stover is stepping out in faith and moving to Kosovo to serve the church there. This girl is one of the students who actually taught me a lot. She constantly had eyes for the needy and broken and would spark up conversations with strangers and tell them about God's love for them. She would remind us all of the refugee Crisis which God had placed as a burden on her heart. She is an outward focused person and is stepping out, much like Paul, and moving to an unknown land to share the gospel with others.
Please pray for her! The sacrifice of leaving friends and loved ones, of leaving routine and home is a very big one. You can find out more through her blog which she will be updating regularly. You can find it here to keep in the loop with her travels and ministry and to find links to support her financially.
I am SO proud of Hannah and this new season of her life. Pray for her and the people of Kosovo!
For God to continue opening doors of ministry opportunity for us. For our strength, focus and dependence on the Holy Spirit.
For God’s wisdom as we share God’s message. That He will use His word to energise our church to wake up and live out their calling to share the good news of the Gospel.
For God to communicate His Truth in such a way that people are drawn into His Word. That our Church and the people of Kings Lynn will be renewed and their lives transformed as they go deeper into God’s Word and draw near to Him in worship.
For God’s clear guidance as we seek the mind of Christ for our ministry in Kings Lynn. As we assess the work to which He has called us, and the best way to accomplish it. For God’s protection and provision during these unsettled times; for His boldness to seize opportunities to give people Jesus; for His power to change lives.
For the Lord to speak to the hearts of those He would have partner with us to support the mission of this ministry and those serving here.
For the Wind of the Spirit to blow through all that we do, so that God continues to enable and use us for His glory. For God’s supernatural protection over us, as we daily seek to live and serve Him…until the soon return of our Lord Jesus.
We Thank our God upon every remembrance of you and your prayers are deeply appreciated!!
