Psalm 1, 1 John 5: 9-13, John 17: 6-19

Jessica and Daniel preaching.
Intro: Our gospel reading finds Jesus and the disciples in the upper room the evening of his arrest. He is giving the final instructions to his disciples. I'm picking out just one sentence for our focus today: Jesus said, “As you have sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.” The disciples, and by extension we, are sent into the world to bring the good news and love of Jesus to others. We do that locally in our missions but a few of us are called to go across the sea, to say, Africa. This morning we welcome back Jessica Hasslen Steyn whom we've heard before and she is joined by her husband of 6-9 months Daniel to talk about bringing the love of Christ into the world beyond our borders.
