Getting There…


From the first, “Go ye into all the world…” until today, missionaries have found a way to carry the gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations.  By foot, motorcycle, on horseback, in the air and on the sea they have travelled.


Today, I carried the message of salvation in a way as never before – for me.  You see, it rained most of Saturday night.  This meant that many of the streets were flooded and almost impassable.  The church where we ministered this morning was flooded all around the outside.  Where we parked, the water was about two inches above my ankles.  There was only one solution – take my shoes and socks off and wade water all the way to the church!  This, in itself, was not  so bad, but with flooding comes the worst of sanitary conditions because of the tremendous amount of raw sewage that is washed from all the outdoor latrines.

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!  Isa 52:7 KJV
