This Sunday is the last in our focus on NZBMS missions. Today, we will hear from Ann Borquist as we reflect on the question, “Does God really care for these people … and for me?” Sometimes the pain of those around us – and within ourselves – makes our soul weary. Hope may fade as we ponder a bleak future. Take heart, knowing that God weeps with us and God cares deeply about what we are going through. At the same time, God desires to use us as God’s channels of hope, justice and love to those around us and in other countries.
