Then the missionaries left


Ever felt that you were working and working on something and then one day everything simply stops and you know it was much ado about nothing. Perhaps a book you were writing, investing time into a project, trying to establish an NGO. Nothing will come from it. It was a waste of time. Maybe the fillowing story will encourage you as it encouraged me.

I visited a country where Christian missionaries were forced to leave more than forty years ago and are still not allowed. When the missionaries left, a few struggling young leaders were in place. The government and the culture were highly anti-Christian. Many of these leaders gave up. But one young man committed himself to making a difference. In the forty-plus years since he was left on his own, he and his team have started more than three thousand churches, mostly underground. (David Watson).
