Sunday Extra – August 27th, 2023
The Road to Perseverance
Good morning, Sunday Extra listener! Today, Rhett Wilson, Sr., delivers our message. Rhett leads our communication efforts at Leighton Ford Ministries, and he has also served for many years in pastoral leadership. In this message he teaches through Ecclesiastes 11:1-6 as he shares “5 Signposts on the Road of Perseverance.” Many times in life, the more value something has, the more perseverance it takes to get it. We hope you will be encouraged today to “plant your seed in the morning” (Eccl. 11:6 NLT).
Praying for Eurasia
In the recent edition of e-news from The Lausanne Movement, Michael du Toit writes about how to pray alongside God’s work in Eurasia. He shares . . .
“Most of Eurasia once formed part of the communist Soviet Union, and each of the countries have long and challenging histories of economic, social, and religious hardship which extend into the present reality. Less than 0.01 percent of the 292 million people who live in this region are evangelical Christians.
Ministry within the Eurasia region is both complex and dangerous, but God is at work here in special ways. In May 2023 nearly 100 evangelical leaders from countries across the region met together in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, for a regional gathering hosted by the Lausanne Movement, as part of the Lausanne 4 journey.”
