Pray for Church Planting

egyptchristians2

Children pray at their church after arsonists burned it.

PATON-John-G.Pray for the work of patient and enduring church planting worldwide.

“Plant down your forces in the heart of one tribe or race, where the same language is spoken. Work solidly from that center, building up with patient teaching and life-long care a Church that will endure. . . Rush not from land to land, from people to people, in a breathless and fruitless mission. Kindle not your lights so far apart, amid the millions and wastes of Heathendom, that every lamp may be extinguished without any of the others knowing, and so leave the blackness of their night blacker than ever. The consecrated common sense that builds for eternity will receive the fullest approval of God in time.” – John Patton

That is what we pray and hope to do… from Manila (as center) to the Middle East!

Watch Mark Dever’s “Endurance Needed: Strength for a Slow Reformation and the Dangerous Allure of Speed”:

About Glem Melo

I am a believer and follower of Christ, happily married, and have 3 wonderful kids. I am the founder and CEO of Open Eyes Mission, under the care of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) Chicago Metro Presbytery, pastoral intern at Faith Church in Dyer, Indiana, and studying Master of Divinity at Mid-America Reformed Seminary. The Bible teaches that God is real, man is sinful, hell is real, and Jesus is our only hope of salvation. I believe these truths with all of my heart, and I hope to help others learn of them as well. "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16) May God give you grace and peace.
