Thought of the Week

I have just returned from India where I visited Ashwood hospital. It was set up by Australian Church of Christ missionaries nearly 100 years ago. I was profoundly impacted by the trip and in particular the work of an Indian couple, Dr. Philemon & Shalini Pawar. The sacrifices they make daily for the gospel really struck me. They served the poor, loved the widows and orphans and even worked amongst people with HIV.

They have devoted their whole lives to this work and the rapport they have within the community was mind blowing. Jesus said “Whatever you did for the least of these you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40). How can you practically show the love of Christ to those in need this week?
