I call upon You, Lord, God of Abraham and God of Isaac and God of Jacob and Israel, You who are the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the God who, through the abundance of your mercy, was well-pleased towards us so that we may know You, who made heaven and earth, who rules over all, You who are the one and the true God, above whom there is no other God; You who, by our Lord Jesus Christ gave us the gift of the Holy Spirit, give to every one who reads this writing to know You, that You alone are God, to be strengthened in You, and to avoid every heretical and godless and impious teaching.

St Irenaeus of Lyons, Against the Heresies 3:6:4

Please Visit the New Sister Site, The Flight of the Doves!

Ronda and Gehrig Dove
Gehrig and Ronda Dove
Please hop over and visit our new site devoted to Gehrig and Ronda Dove's dedication to the missio Dei in Nigeria!  You'll find news, pictures, and any updates in their service to the beautiful widows and orphans across Africa, especially Nigeria.

The psalmist said, "Father of the fatherless and protector of widows is God in his holy habitation" (68:5).  The Dove's labors with the Rafiki Foundation is absolute evidence of this verse.  God in Christ through the Spirit is indeed present with his people in the holy habitation, his Church.  As you'll read in the Dove's most recent update, they have already been blessed to witness God growing his new creational temple, the Church, through the changed heart of a woman, committing herself to following the risen Lord Jesus this week!

So, please pay The Flight of the Doves a visit, as you prayerfully consider how you can join the missio Dei with them by your prayers and support!
