We recognize that to win others to Christ, one must first gain trust through genuine relationships. To do that, you you live with them. This means you move into the neighborhood, you enroll in their schools, learn their language, and become their friends so that you may directly be a light among them, showing Christs love for them. Some would call this “friendship evangelism”.
We believe that it is not military might, nor diplomatic influence, nor economic initiatives that are the keys to victory. Rockets, jets, or settlements can gain no territory. Rather, victory came riding on the colt of a donkey, and they did not recognize Him.
For these reasons, The Ridge is supporting the Ethington family missionaries, who will be leaving July 22, not just for a trip, but to live. They will integrate into a people, a community, a nation that knows not the Savior. We cannot disclose where they will be going for safety purposes but we celebrate what God intends to do through this courageous family that is trusting all to Jesus.
To God be the glory
