On Sunday evening I was blessed to be able to hear Canon Andrew White interviewed by Nicky Gumbel at Holy Trinity Brompton. Such an amazing inspiration! A man of courage, guts and awesome faith, in a dangerous place. He talks of amazing suffering, angelic visions, healings, 1000's attending Alpha.
What really struck me was his joy! Last year almost 100 people in his congregation were killed. 11 Muslims were converted to Christ and came to him to be baptised. Within 2 weeks they were dead. His church was bombed causing terrible damage. He serves God whilst battling with debilitating MS. And yet he inspired us with his determination to serve Jesus and show nothing but love. When asked what we could pray for, he did not ask for prayers of protection but that the love in his congregation would grow. Awesome!
Watch the interview and be encouraged!
