A New Dawn – Weekly Inspiring Image

papua new guinea

A new year has dawned. Good morning from the islands of Papua New Guinea. We have another year of travelling, fishing, hoping, sowing and harvesting ahead of us. Another round of seasons cold and warm, wet and dry – of celebrating, mourning, praying and rejoicing – each perfect in its own time. Each year we get a little closer to seeing our vision fulfilled; to see individuals, communities and nations transformed through God’s love and word expressed in their languages and cultures. Each of us has something unique to contribute to this great mission of God. We were made for it. This year let us remember: We are all in this together.

    Thanks … it is good to be reminded that it’s for God’s pleasure that we’re different and can offer something unique to Him.
