Kenyan missionary Pastor Steve Njenga brings the sermon today from Nehemiah 1:1-11. Nehemiah's example shows us that making a difference in Christian missions requires us to turn to God in prayer and surrender our lives to be used of God. In order to be transformed and strengthened to serve God and others, Christians need: to receive the right information; to be touched by the needs of others; to respond to the needs; and to not listen to discouragers. To accomplish His purposes, God uses ordinary, humble people who first come to Him in prayer.
February is Missions Month at BVBC. Our focus this month is on the vital role of intercessory prayer in the work of missions through the local and global church. Each week in February, we will study a missional prayer and have a dedicated time of prayer in the service using that week's prayer as a guide.
