Maastricht Spring 2017
It is so great to see nature awake in this wonderful season of spring.
We see many flowers that were hidden during the winter, grow and form great fields of beautiful colours. Everything seems to come alive again, like a revival.
As one of our children, Ruby, was playing in a field just outside Maastricht in the countryside, this season reminded us of God's great plans, as we are planting a church in Maastricht. Plans that are often hidden from humans eyes, will now be revealed to us.
In Ephesians 3 Paul tells us about "God's mysterious plan" revealed by His Spirit to our generation.
And this is God’s plan: 'Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the riches inherited by God’s children. Both are part of the same body, and both enjoy the promise of blessings because they belong to Christ Jesus. By God’s grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News'.
The reason we are planting in Maastricht is that we see a church full of redeemed, Spirit Filled, Word based, worshipping, praying passionate disciples of Jesus; being salt and light in their homes, neighborhoods, communities in Maastricht and beyond.
The city of Maastricht is open to receive the Good News of Jesus Christ; let's go and bring it to the people.
Please pray with us
- That the Good News of Jesus Christ will spread throughout Maastricht. That like spring, where things were hidden for a while, now would be revealed to us. Pray for a powerful breakthrough of the Gospel, that many will be saved and know Jesus as their Saviour.
- Pray for the development of a team filled with courageous and bold people who will have a great love for the city and the euroregion. Also for protection and provision for the ones that are moving and/or joining us.
- Pray for us and our kids. We are still waiting for the right house. We know God is going to provide it to us soon, but please pray with us for patience and steadfastness.
