From one generation to another

Editor of awmlink

Today’s generation is following in the footsteps of pioneers like Lilias Trotter

If God needs weakness, He has it. We’re on a fool’s errand but our Master uses the foolish things of this world to shame the wise.
Lilias Trotter, pioneer to North Africa

This year, the story of Lilias is coming to life on screen. I was privileged to see the final version of the visually stunning documentary ahead of its release later in 2015. More impressive than Miss Trotter’s beautiful artwork is her dedication to Christ and His Kingdom.

Our recent Saltmine tour (featuring the quote above) stirred many churches towards cross-cultural mission. We pray that this cinema showing of Many Beautiful Things* will challenge even more audiences.

The psalmist states, ‘One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.’ Psalm 145:4 (ESV). You’ll read in the latest awmlink magazine how today’s generation is following in the footsteps of Lilias Trotter and making Christ known among the nations.
