A year ago nothing; now a church

Friday, June 10th, 2011

At least seven Christians are still in prison with no news about their case. As they suffer, the church continues to grow. Recently about ten or so Iranians were baptised in a town where a year ago there was no church. Now there is a small and thriving fellowship.

As with so much church growth in recent years, it began with fairly young believers sensing a call to a place and being ready to be sent. Some might have said they were too young in the faith; that they needed more training; more experience. But the answer is – look at what happened. It is a sincere heart and the authority of the Gospel that has the last word. Sure, there are steep learning curves, but that curve is going somewhere.

Pray for:

• Grace for those in prison
• Courage for church planters
• Protection of new believers
