ANOTHER RESULT OF THE FORUM: JILL WALLIS, MINISTRY IN BANGLADESH
One of the great pluses of the Forum
was the networking.Jill
had been involved in the ,Local Church and the Great Commission
, Issue Group
and had met one of the participants from Bangladesh.This led to an invitation to Jill
to come and minister in Bangladesh in a variety of ways.She
spoke 22 times in ten days, preaching in churches, speaking at women,s conferences, speaking to pastors, sharing the gospel with children from the slums and meeting wonderful people who are lights for Jesus in a country that is 90% Muslim.
said that one woman had saved up for a rickshaw for her
husband so he
could work and lent her
son some money to start a video stall!
Many Christians in Bangladesh are being persecuted for their faith, but are standing firm.It was encouraging that many people were coming to Christ after having a dream in which they saw Jesus with outstretched arms calling them to come to Him.Jill
asks that we would join her
in praying for the Christians of Bangladesh and for the pastors, teachers, women and children who heard of the love of Jesus through her
visit and for the on-going work of HEED.
PRAYER POINTFor an orphanage which the local Christian Church
is setting up for little girls from the ages of 4 and 12 who are found wandering the streets.There is little finance available for this vital ministry.If you would like to help, I,ll put you in touch with Jill
MY LAUSANNE MINISTRY
I continue to be greatly encouraged by the huge difference Christian women are making around the world.May we continue to be salt and light so that all that we do has the ,flavour, of Christ and that our lives will reflect Jesus who said that as the ,Light of the World, He
had come to call people out of darkness into His
marvelous light.The fact that He
calls us to transmit this light is a great privilege!
