Wednesday is for Prayer (additions)
Thought you might be encouraged by some things I have been reading. Here’s a couple of quotes.
[All quotes from David Garrison, How Church Planting Movements: How God is Redeeming a Lost World]
- “A church planting movement transforms Cambodia’s killing fields into fields of new life with more than 60,000 new Christians and hundreds of new churches planted over the past ten years.
- “Despite government attempts to eliminate Christianity, a church planting movement in one Southeast Asian country adds more than 50,000 new believers in five years.”
- In China, church planting movements “are baptizing 30,000 people a day.” (YOU MIGHT WANT TO READ THAT AGAIN!)
God is moving all around the world. More people are coming to a saving knowledge of Christ. Pray that God might use the new work to which He is calling me to start a similar movement here in the Chicagoland area that will spread to the entire country. Wouldn’t it be great to see a real, nothing-can-stop-it, Christ-exalting, people-transforming, justice-seeking, community-changing, love-saturated church planting movement in the United States?
Pray for it.
