Faith – Communion Set In Advance

food for thought header 2
In the Life of Robert and Mary Moffat, edited by their son, we are reminded that for ten years the early mission in Bechuanaland was carried on without encouragement for the faithful workers. No convert was made. The directors at home began to question the wisdom of continuing the mission. A friend from England sent word to Mrs. Moffat asking what gift she should send out to her. And the brave woman wrote back, “Send a communion service; I’m sure it will be needed.”

At last the breath of the Lord moved on the heart of the Bechuanas. A little group of six were united into the first Christian church, and that communion service from England, singularly delayed, reached Kuruman just one day before the appointed time for the first administration of the Lord’s Supper.
