“Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings. And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. To him be the power for ever and ever. Amen.”
1 Peter 5:7–11 (NIV)
Our world is becoming more complex as the ease of travel finds people of various cultures merging into others. Native language and cultural sensitivities can aid in reaching these people. We also find the continued needs of those who are sick and hurting or perhaps in the Armed forces and feeling very much alone.
Appeal: Our offering today is for the World Budget and two ministries of special emphasis are the Chaplaincy and Multilingual ministries. Both of these ministries strive to restore those who are lonely, hurting and distressed. There is an additional challenge when there is a language barrier so the work of multilingual ministries is to provide the Three Angels Messages in a language format that will reach people in their native tongue.
