Some of our team were on the way up to Townsville and were reminded (and encouraged) that mission starts before we get there. Cam writes,
We were waiting at Sydney Airport this morning at our gate ready to board our plane, when an older couple asked us whether we were off to Townsville for the Moore College Mission, having seen Luke holding a Moore College bag. They then proceeded to let us know that they had been praying for us and the other mission teams. How encouraging!
People have gone before us in prayer and those in Townsville have gone before us in mission as they have preached Jesus well before we even got on planes. Yet, God has gone before us all, sending his son so that we might have good news to tell people about. He has also gone before us in Townsville, preparing people to hear the gospel and put their trust in Jesus.
Praise God for the good news we have to preach, and thank him for those faithful saints who have been praying for us and the other teams.
