As the discussions over the future of Syria continue in Switzerland, I came across this blog post from Mark Meynell which he put up on 18th January. It recounts the experiences of a Christian pastor and his congregation in Aleppo. It is a very challenging account of what it means to be living as a Christian on the front line of the Syrian conflict.
Why Svědek ?
This is a blog from Simon and Dorit Marshall who are working with European Christian Mission International. You can learn more about us on the ‘About’ page.
Svědek [svyedek] is Czech for ‘witness’ and we chose this name for our prayer and news letter when we moved to Prague in 2009. When we left there we decided that it was a name which still reflected what it is that we are and do – witness to Jesus. As he said to his disciples, “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8
The blog contains bits and pieces from our time at Tilsley College , and that Simon decides to post related to ECMI and the books he is reading. It is also where you can read our latest newsletters.
Information about Simon’s schedule and links to recordings of previous sermons are available on the other pages on this blog.
