Pastor's Message - Chris Kibble

Ken Taylor from New Orleans writes ‘A friend of mine serves as a missionary in a restricted access country. For many years the government of this country has taught the people that there is no God. My friend had the opportunity to interact on a regular basis with a nonbeliever of that country who is a highly educated professional.

After developing a friendship with the professional, my friend had the opportunity to share the gospel story with him. My friend was taken aback by the man's response: "What you have told me cannot be true. If it were true, it is such good news that someone would have told this to me before."’ Interesting comment!
