Pray Ye Therefore

Yesterday morning, Eric Lantrip and I had the opportunity to meet and discuss the ministry here in Austria. We talked about goals, strategy and things of that nature. It was a valuable time to reevaluate what we are doing, as well as to look to the future. One of our goals is to establish a national network of conservative (theologically) churches in Austria. In order for this to happen, though, we need more workers. At an approximate ratio of 1,364,115.2 Austrians to each full-time adult BBFI worker, we are significantly outnumbered. "Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest" (Matthew 9:38). If you look at that verse of Scripture in its context you will notice that the same people that Jesus asked to pray became the very answer to the prayer. There are many who read this blog regularly as well as those who only stop by occasionally. Either way, if you are reading this you obviously have some kind of interest in our lives and/or the ministry here. Have you ever considered joining in Austria. It would save you the trouble of having to check up on us through the web. Plus, we could really use the help. Please pray for more workers here. And who knows, maybe you are the answer to that prayer. There is no greater work than serving the Lord. Have a great day!
