I'm back in town after a visit to the Middle East and England. Tired but happy.
In India and China church planting is numbered in the thousands. The Middle East is different. Although the principles of multiplication don't vary, their application does.
In the region we visited there weren't thousands of new churches but there were hundreds of new believers meeting quietly in homes. God is at work even in one of the toughest mission fields in the world. He works through ordinary people and the gospel spreads from house to house through family and friendship networks. No razamataz, no superstars, just like the book of Acts.
I wonder if we have anything to learn from God's people in the Arab world?
