Date 08th June 2014  by Bevan Burnes - Elder  Bible passage Genesis 13:5-18

The life story of Abraham and his family is one that fascinates me greatly. He was an old man near the end of his life, yet in his ‘retirement’, God called him to go on a journey to ‘somewhere he knew not’. Amongst millions of heathen people, God chose Abram, not because of who and

The Messenger’s Mission
