Saving Lives

Coming in on platform 1 in Prague always touches me.

Sir Nicholas Winton organized the rescue of 669 Czech children in 1939, most of them Jewish, from Czechoslovakia on the eve of the Second World War. They left from this train station, making their way to Britain where he found homes for them, thus saving their lives.

As we made our way through Prague towards our destination, I thought about how we share a likeness of heart with him.

We too long to see Czech young people saved. Spiritually.

As well as Slovak, Polish, Estonian and Croatian young people; not to mention teenagers from all the other countries here in Central and Eastern Europe where we are working to share the Gospel, and raise up a new generation that loves, follows and serves Jesus.

Thankfully Dave was well enough to come to Prague today in order to share that vision at the European Great Commission Collaboration, a group dedicated to encouraging European Christians to fulfill the Great Commission through supporting outreach, discipleship, community and church developments.

Together with some of the finest Christian leaders in Europe, we are praying for a great movement of God across this region, that will bring about spiritual transformation into the lives of people here.

It is such a privilege to be serving in ministry here in Europe at this time! We believe the harvest is white and ready, and are praying that millions of lives will be saved through Jesus Christ in our lifetime.

May the collaboration between ministries and donors have GREAT impact on this region of the world for the sake of the Gospel.
