Background & Rationale for Initiating this project.   Streetkids was started in 2012 by a member of the Freetown Ecclesia who found children on the street and felt compelled to show them the love of Jesus.

Today we completed reading in Revelation the letters to the seven ecclesias: they are quite diverse from one another, but we see them as being representative of the spirituality within different communities of believers down through all ages.

Today’s thought “Standing up for the faith” (December 20)

In this world where more people are interested in worldly matters, mostly material matters, having not much fertile ground for spiritual matters, it is not always easy for a follower of Christ to stand firm in the faith.

Today’s thought “Darker days, presents and Love for others” (December 13)

Yesterday we mentioned the difficulties that we, Christadelphians, but also the Jeshuaists and Jews may experience in Belgium and France, and how we must always respond positively to that resistance. We must, above all, avoid the negativeness towards us through our positive, loving attitude. As Christadelphians, like Jeshuaists, are real Christians, or followers of Christ… Read More Today’s thought “Darker days, presents and Love for others” (December 13)
