Grace Extends in Govan

No two persons are the same. Every person is the same. Read this brief update about how grace is extending in Govan, Scotland.

Q: “How do you minister to people whose lives are so desperate and transient?”

A: “You mean you don’t?”

Ministering in one of the country’s most broken areas is challenging. But life without Christ is desperate and transient anywhere. If it is affluent and comfortable as well, that’s just a smokescreen. Wealth and social stability only mask the underlying spiritual problem that people have: they are alienated from God and facing judgment.

So, pray for Grace Baptist Church Govan, led by Dan Funke, with his wife, Monet. Pray that their Sunday service and Thursday drop-in would be well attended by those who are broken. Be it drugs, alcohol, relationship hurt, abuse, poverty or seeking asylum, Jesus is the real answer.

Life moves fast in Govan. People come and go. Pray that the gospel would come savingly into the lives of those who are passing-by. It is encouraging that Govan’s first convert was from Islam. May God encourage them that there is no condition so hopeless that Christ cannot save people from it.

Pray that nominal attenders at Govan would be stirred into life. Even as Dan’s progress is evident to all, pray that God will attend the preaching of the gospel with saving power and add to His church those who are being saved.

“For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.” 2 Corinthians 4:15
