I can’t tell you how great your thoughts were on the last post, “God’s Mission Has A Church.” It is really encouraging and exciting to see your responses and the thought each of you put into your comments. In the Gospels Jesus describes the Kingdom of God as near, here already and just around the…Details
What? How often do we mix this up? This past weekend we shared a little bit more about life in the orphanage at Fedja and the proposed solution to the problems they are experiencing there. The solution, proposed by GVCM director Yves Prophete, is the planting of a church next door to the orphanage. What…Details
