Welcome to the Jim Harries' Mission
The good news of Jesus Christ, is that those who believe in him "shall not perish but have everlasting life". The shedding of the blood of Christ on the cross is forgiveness of sins for all those who believe in him.
That amazing news dominates my life. It is news that is hard to take on board. Forgiveness is one of the hardest things to believe in. It is easy to doubt that we have been truly forgiven. Christ said "Come to me, you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (In the Bible, the Gospel about Jesus that was written by Matthew, Chapter 11 verse 28).
That fantastic news changed the world, and continues to challenge me deeply and continually. Surely that is news that I cannot keep to myself? Wouldn't that be selfish? Good news needs to be spread. (See the Luo Language Bible.)
That's the motivation behind my work in Africa, and the motivation behind this web site.
I hope you enjoy exploring the site.
