Thought for the day
The journey & the messenger
As we read in Acts 8, a man made the journey from Ethiopia to Jerusalem.
On his way back with scripture in his hands, God sent him a messenger.
That was nearly 2000 years ago. He probably came from a territory that includes modern Eritrea.
Today, many people are making the journey from Eritrea to Libya, crossing the Mediterranean in unsafe vessels and trekking across Europe and some arrive in the UK. I met a young woman who had made that journey.
She had lost a brother on the way. She was very anxious about family left behind and the dangers they lived with. She was a Christian.
Many others who make the journey are Muslims, also seeking safety, peace and a new life.
The Eritrean church in the UK is growing. Pray that all Eritreans arriving here will sooner or later have scriptures in their hands and be met by messengers sent by God.
