South African Pastors Visit!

Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the Lord’s people. Philemon 1:7

Six pastors from South Africa spent the past week in Greece viewing the
Biblical sites, interacting with local Greek pastors and experiencing the
various aspects of the work.

They were staggered by the need and the effectiveness of the work of Hellenic Ministry (HM) in Greece. They have all promised to return and bring teams with them for the New Testament distribution next summer. This heralds the start of new partnerships for HM in South Africa.

They were particularly impressed by the effective work being done via the
Love Meals and the discipleship groups amongst the refugees. They were also
moved by the plight of Evangelical pastors striving to communicate the
evangelical gospel in a society where Evangelicals are regarded as
"heretics" and are often ostracized by the rest of the community.

We would like to encourage other Christian leaders and pastors from around
the world to come to Greece and see the work that is being accomplished by
Hellenic Ministries. Greece has never had a revival or a reformation -
maybe it is God's time for Greece!
