The Story for All Seasons:

A Missionary Journey to London

Dear friends,

I had the great privilege in February of embarking on a missionary journey through London with a few other Word on Fire staff members and Fellows from the Word on Fire Institute. I am so pleased to be able to share these videos with you, which take a look back at the various sights, lectures, and programs of that journey. I hope these videos give you a sense of both the deep history and spiritual vitality that I experienced during my time there.

It was a pleasure to take in all that London has to offer and to meet so many enthusiastic supporters of our mission from “across the pond,” including members of the Institute. I’m grateful to all those who organized and participated in these events, and I’m hopeful that Word on Fire’s evangelical work will continue to bear good fruit in the Church throughout England.

May God bless you,
