This week I was blessed to be able to chat with Erin Kerber (LCA International Mission) together with Pastor Roelof and Lauren about our Myanmar Partnership in the Gospel.
A big thank you to all those who recently donated towards our appeal where we have sought to help provide some assistance to the effect of both Covid-19 and the ongoing government crisis the people find themselves in.
This meeting was a wonderful reminder of the wonderful partnership that we have with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Myanmar, but also how it is a partnership in the true sense of the word.
And that is because we are equal partners in the gospel. As we continue to seek to pray for each other, learn from each other and share from each other (even though we might like to do this personally – we can also do this virtually), we are encouraging each other to be the local expression of the church within the context of global partnership.
Because each of us are seeking to know Christ and making Christ known in the communities, cities and districts where we work, and through our partnership we help each other to share the Gospel in the places where God has called us.
Thank you for the part that you play, not only in God’s mission, but also within our partnership as you individually pray, learn, give and grow from our sisters and brothers in Christ, but also be reminded that they are praying, learning from, giving to and growing from you as well.
It really gives a global expression to what Paul means when he talks about the church being ‘one body, many parts’.
God’s richest blessings continue to be with this wonderful Gospel partnership into the future,
