This month Scrap of Faith these is all about reaching out to others or evangelising. When presented with the theme this month, God immediately brought these couple of verses of scripture to my mind.
I decided to use the verse in Mark 16:15 as the title of my layout.

“Go into all the World and Preach the good news to all creation”
Mark 16:15

As a young person I remember a quest speaker at church one night speaking on evangelising and how Acts 1 v 8 is as relevant to us today as it was to the early church. He pointed out that our responsibility to evangelise was world wide, and broke down this scripture so that it applies to our situation and location today. This really challenged us as a couple and has played a huge part in our lives as we have prayed about the different ministries in which we have felt the Lord has led us to be involved.

“But you will receive power when the HOLY SPIRIT comes on you: and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the Earth”
Acts 1: 8.

I would love to challenge you all to apply this verse of scripture to your lives and look at the areas in which you are reaching out to others with the good news of the Gospel of Jesus. My layout represents some of the ministries of reaching out with the Gospel of Jesus, that we have been or that we are involved with at the moment. Our reaching out needed to be amongst the people in our own town. – Rockhampton = Jerusalem I have used a photo of the girls I meet with monthly to scrapbook with. It needs to be in our State, Queensland = Judea, and for this I have used a photo of the Scripture Union logo, as over the years we have been heavily involved in SU camping and chaplaincy ministries. For our country Australia = Samaria, I have used the logo of Scrap of Faith, as I see this as a ministry which touches the lives of lots of woman in this wonderful country in which we live, and our witness also need to reach out globally (world) and I have used the Compassion logo to represent the sponsor children we support overseas. This is a relatively cheap layout to reproduce as I have not used any patterned paper at all. You could use it instead of paint if you so desire.
