Bearing the cross… across New Zealand

It's always exciting to see stories that highlight God's work in regular newspapers. This week included a story about a 27 year old man who is going to be carrying a cross the length of New Zealand for the fourth time. The article also reminded me that this is a year where people from all walks of life are remembering our Kiwi Christian heritage.

The article states: "This is his longest trip - a 2500km journey - and this one has even more significance. It will end on Christmas Day in Northland's Oihi Bay, where he will be among 5000 to 6000 people gathered to mark 200 years since missionary Samuel Marsden preached New Zealand's first sermon on the beach there. ... The former Youth With A Mission missionary has travelled the world, including mission trips up the Amazon River to build a church in South America, to Pakistan and deep into the backcountry villages of Morocco."

Isn't it amazing to see the Gospel-bicentenary along with mission work mentioned in a regular newspaper?! To read the full story click here.
