Sunday Recap for September 1, 2019:
The Water and the Blood

Mission Highlight: Thank you, George, for sharing with us an update on Louisa's work with the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. The Rohingya are a Muslim people living for centuries in Buddhist Myanmar. They are denied citizenship and there have been waves of mass exodus over decades of persecution. 

It's been a month since Louisa left her home in Philadelphia, and adjusting to new cultures and a new language has been challenging emotionally and spiritually. Also during this time, she unexpectedly lost a friend. As she grieves the passing of her friend from far away and tries to get acclimated to her new environment, we can pray for her in the following ways:

"Pray against spiritual attacks. I still feel waves of sadness and grief for my friend and those who mourn his absence. Pray that these don't lead to depression or panic attacks. I hope to start seeing a counsellor next week.

Pray for my relationship with my Rohingya language teacher and her family. Pray for our friendship to grow. Pray that we would both have clear communication, discernment and patience in the language learning process. 

Pray for our local church as we decide how to proceed in serving a new Rohingya community. Pray for wisdom and unity as we consider partners and strategies. Pray that we would be good stewards in Christ's Kingdom work."
Link to this Week's Sermon: “The Water and the Blood" (Exodus 12-15)

“The essence of sin is we human beings substituting ourselves for God, while the essence of salvation is God substituting himself for us. We put ourselves where only God deserves to be; God puts himself where we deserve to be.” (John Stott, Cross of Christ)

 Main Idea: God is always bringing forth new life.
