Looks a bit impersonal doesn’t it? Not one to stand out in the crowd! But that’s my identity; that’s who I am this Sunday; number 10 591. Isn’t it great to know that we are more than just a number; that we are known personally and loved for who we are. That we are unique to our heavenly Father.
I am Number 10 591 in the virtual Great North Run on Sunday and I will wear my number with pride. But many are just numbers in a prison system or on a list carefully monitored by surveillance authorities. Their number is an identity for mistreatment. They have dared to think differently; to have and live out faith.
10 591 did their final training session today; times getting better but feet not great. I’m hoping and praying by 9:30 Sunday they will improve.
Finally, a big thank you to each and everyone who has given so far. I’ve been able to thank those who have left their names but to those who have donated anonymously, a huge THANKS! I do appreciate it. You know who you are and so does God. Persecuted Christians will be very grateful for your kindness. May you too be blessed.
