Being Practitioners in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Ends of the Earth

Being missionaries, it is easy to say we're doing enough in our overseas work in Ireland and Poland, but God says we are to make disciples as we go, where we are at, baptizing and teaching them to obey.

May God continue to give the increase as we seek to advance His Kingdom.
