One of the things that constantly amazes me about travelling is the prevalence of the church.
It might not be the dominant faith in every nation; indeed, the majority of people may not express a faith at all in some countries, but I have never visited a country where the life of Jesus hasn’t impacted it in some way. I’ve seen churches on the snowy mountains of Whistler, Canada, theatres in New York, basic constructs on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya, barns in France and today, Estonia. Today we also visited ‘the Living Cafe’, a Christian cafe that played Jesus Culture in the background while we ate cake and drank hot chocolate. I loved it!
I love even more that lives are still being transformed today in the farthest reaches of the globe. I love that on a sightseeing holiday with friends (incidentally, friends that I met through the church), there is constant evidence of the impact of Jesus wherever we go. It’s so exciting! I pray that the gospel continues to transform the earth forever more!
