On Sunday, October 31st we took time to have a special service of prayer for the persecuted church.  Maria, Betty, Doug and Rein read us a series of scriptures. Jared Vander Muelen was our guest speaker, from Open Doors Canada.  We learned about the work of Open Doors, supporting and encouraging our brothers and sisters across the world who live under oppression and persecution.  Prayer is the best thing we can do, and so we spent some time praying for the countries of Afganistan, India, Algeria, and Cuba. The service was ended with a song of hope, that Jesus really is the hope for all nations.
