Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.Tuesday 12 July 2011

  17. 17. February 19, 1812, young Adoniram Judson, and his bride of seven days, Ann Haseltine Judson, set sail for India...The Judsons were rejected entrance into India to preach the Gospel to the Hindus by the East India Company and after many trying times, frustrations, fears, and failures, they finally found an open door in Rangoon, Burma.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  18. 18. There was not one known Christian in that land of millions. And there were no friends in that robber-infested, idolatry-infected, iniquity-filled land. A baby was born to alleviate the loneliness of the young couple, but it was to be only for a temporary time. Eight months later, Roger William Judson was buried under a great mango tree. The melancholy "tum-tum" of the death drum for the thousands claimed by cholera, and the firing cannons and beating on houses with clubs to ward off demons, tormented the sensitive, spiritual souls of that missionary couple, too.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  19. 19. And there were no converts. It was to be six, long, soul-crushing, heart- breaking years before the date of the first decision for Christ. Then, on June 27, 1819, Judson baptized the first Burman believer, Moung Nau. Judson jotted in his journal: "Oh, may it prove to be the beginning of a series of baptisms in the Burman empire which shall continue in uninterrupted success to the end of the age." Converts were added slowly — a second, then three, then six, and on to eighteen.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  20. 20. But opposition came, also. Finally Judson was imprisoned as a British spy — an imprisonment of twenty-one months. Judson was condemned to die, but in answer to prayers to God and the incessant pleadings of his wife to officials (one of the most emotional-packed, soul-stirring stories in evangelism), Judsons life was spared and finally British intervention freed him from imprisonment.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  21. 21. Adoniram Judson served 37 years in Myanmar with just 8,000 converts. William Carey labored for 7 years before his first convert in India. Robert Morrison worked for 25 years in China with less than a dozen converts.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  22. 22. be strong - be resolute Dictionary: Admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering ...you are both staunch and steadfast, but the emphasis here is on character and a firm adherence to your own goals and purposes rather than to those of others.Tuesday 12 July 2011
  23. 23. “One day George Mueller began praying for five of his friends. After many months, one of them came to the Lord. Ten years later, two others were converted. It took 25 years before the fourth man was saved. Mueller persevered in prayer until his death for the fifth friend, and throughout those 52 years he never gave up hoping that he would accept Christ! His faith was rewarded, for soon after Mueller’s funeral the last one was saved.”Tuesday 12 July 2011
  24. 24. "God does nothing except in response to believing prayer." John Wesley “There is a mighty lot of difference between saying prayers and praying.” John G. LakeTuesday 12 July 2011
