In the past 12 months we have been able to send people to India, Venezuela, Albania, the Jungle Camp in Calais, Northern Ireland and Eastern Ukraine. On each trip we love to share the awesome message of the love of the Father expressed through Jesus. We particularly love working with church leaders, congregations and individuals to bring healing to broken hearts. Jesus quoted Isaiah, when he said:
"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has annointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are opressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour." Luke 4: 18, 19 (ESV)
The business of Jesus is still the same today. We find the same condition everywhere we go– the refugee camp, the big city church, or the streets of North Belfast, broken lives; oppressed, captive, poor and blind. Beautiful people, damaged by the effects of their own sin and the sins of others. We find the same Holy Spirit that filled Jesus moving to reach out to touch the broken with God the Father's warm, passionate embrace. What an awesome business to be involved in!
