I’ve wondered for a long time why I couldn’t pray the way I wanted to. Other people would spend hours praying and be consistent about it too. What was wrong with me? Then I realized something – my biggest roadblock in talking to God was that He seemed distant – as if His voice was coming from some far away place. I often sang “come, Jesus come,” at church, assuming that unless I expressly asked Him to come He wouldn’t be there with me. When you think someone is far away, it’s hard to believe they know or care about you.
How do you grow a new church project that reaches nonbelievers in the West? Through prayer and creativity! Two All Nations missionaries, originally from Europe themselves, have been working with a team and faithfully cultivating a project in Exeter, England, designed to reach out to people who don’t want to be involved in regular church.
