What do Elijah and the widow of Zarephath have to do with tribal missions? The answer might surprise you. Tomorrow I will have the opportunity to talk about it at Sunnybrook Community Church.
One of the things I intend to communicate is that God has a heart for the unreached people of the world. This was in fact the driving force behind a week of meetings that I had in Florida earlier this month. I had the opportunity to meet with Culture and Language Consultants that are working in countries all over the world who have a heart to see churches planted in remote areas. Working with unreached people groups and being able to understand their culture and communicate clearly is vitally important. As consultants who give guidance to missionaries all over the world, it was our desire to compile our resources and fine-tune our tools to be able to be more effective.
Right now in the Patpatar there is another difficulty with communication. One of the Bible teachers is quite sick and another one is away. Pray with us for them that they will recover and get back soon and that the task left to the others of communicating the truth of God’s Word will be accomplished.
For those of you in the Sioux City area without commitments to a church service tomorrow, I would like to invite you to either the 9:00 or the 10:45 service at Sunnybrook. For those who cannot make it I believe that it will be available online during those times and then later on in the week at http://sunnybrookchurch.org.
