November is when the GRN Executive Committee meet. This committee is made up of the Regional Coordinators of our 5 global regions; Sally Hogg (Europe), Colin Stott (The Americas), Barnabas Shrestha (Asia) Jacques Nignan (Africa) and me (representing Oceania), and Doug Armstrong (ExCom Secretary).
For the third year in a row, we are planning to meet in Kathmandu, Nepal. For the last two years, we have had to change our plans because of instability in that country. We are praying that we will not have to do this at the last minute again this year!
The challenge of providing leadership and support for such a multicultural organisation, in the rapidly changing context of our world, is huge! As leaders, we need to listen to the voice of our colleagues in ministry, the voice of the church, the needs of the world and, most importantly, the voice of God. Please pray with us that God would give us his wisdom as we respond to the challenges and problems we face and look to the future.
Pray that God would lead us so that we might continue to be the means of many people groups hearing and responding to God's word, who would not otherwise hear it.
