If you need some encouragement, as I have, for your own heart and for your country.... have a listen here, remember the praise-worthy sovereign God we serve and too, see these ambassadors of their generation. Lord do your work in our hearts and in our land!
And if you want just a taste of what many in not-my-country, but my-home-land live, their daily reality... watch just the first 4 minutes of this video. We pray, with some of the words that finish the pages of Scripture... Even So Come, Lord Jesus!
