Mark Eshun (Central Region, Ghana)
Jesus said, “It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” - John 16:7 (KJV)
In the last moments Jesus spent with his disciples, he warned them about the persecutions ahead of them if they were to follow him. Jesus did not share this warning to discourage and frighten them but to build their faith and help them understand the journey ahead.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
