The presence of the local church in a remote community is a powerful symbol of history and hope. When things fall apart, when conflicts happen, when tragedy falls the church is there.. But it’s so much more than a building. It is people, ordinary people who know they need forgiveness and grace and the ever-present power of God’s spirit in their lives. That’s what makes the church. In Fregon last week we met with three precious ladies who have taken responsibility for the local church until a new pastor comes. They faithfully serve the community and conduct Bible Studies and services to encourage the people to keep trusting in God for the future. It was such an honour to meet Mandua, Merridith and Pauline and hear of their work with the church in Fregon.
