Pray for the work of patient and enduring church planting worldwide.
“Plant down your forces in the heart of one tribe or race, where the same language is spoken. Work solidly from that center, building up with patient teaching and life-long care a Church that will endure. . . Rush not from land to land, from people to people, in a breathless and fruitless mission. Kindle not your lights so far apart, amid the millions and wastes of Heathendom, that every lamp may be extinguished without any of the others knowing, and so leave the blackness of their night blacker than ever. The consecrated common sense that builds for eternity will receive the fullest approval of God in time.” – John Patton
That is what we pray and hope to do… from Manila (as center) to the Middle East!
