We were thrilled to welcome Steve Oliver and Stephan Pereira (from Mumbai but currently living in UK) to Jubilee Church Hull. It was a significant visit as we have only been part of the Regions Beyond for less than a year.
We gathered on a Saturday to hear the stories of the beginning of our church family in Clarens and the vision for the future. A photo of the church in North India praying for our church and city moved us deeply. Faith rose and tears flowed as our eyes were lifted to see Jesus lifted up the nations with a particular passion to join with the poorest on Mission.
As many were prophesied over hearts were reawakened and a passion for God’s purposes increased. Steve preaching on Sunday giving an opportunity for questions. He time spent with different people over meals and through this our church got a stronger understanding of our mission in partnership increased.
Hull people often call themselves a forgotten city. Our heads were lifted knowing we have been handpicked by God and that He wants to use Hull people to help shape our movement. The foundation that was laid over the weekend will mean more people will be mobilized to reach our city and the nations. We look forward to all that God will do through us and what He will teach us from all our friends in Regions Beyond across the world.
