Loving the world on your doorstep

A short term mission in Leeds led by James Price

Leeds talk in mosqueThis summer a World Outreach team have been crossing culture barriers in a bid to learn more about God’s heart for the nations.

As part of a week-long mission & discipleship week, 14 people gathered in a predominantly Pakistani community in northern England to learn about cross-cultural mission. The week included cultural and Biblical training, climaxing with the team running a family fun day in partnership with the local city-wide kids club.

James Price, the World Outreach Mission Mobiliser who organised the week, commented: “The mission week was a fantastic opportunity for people to develop their understanding of God’s heart for the nations. You don’t have to go overseas to reach the nations – the ends of the earth are here in Europe, living on our doorsteps.”

Nathanialsaid: “Its helpful having the information about the different cultures, why they might be here and what issues we need to be aware of when sharing our faith. It has been a really useful experience, learning lessons for life.”Crossing Cultures course

Spending time in another culture can be really challenging, but equally rewarding. Stepping out of your comfort zones allows God to stretch you and enlarge your vision for the nations.
