Ryan and I spoke again tonight and we found ourselves in a room filled with many people who have been “holding the rope” for me for many years. And now they’re holding the rope for us. We look forward to continued relationships with many people who are on the other end, holding us up as we move towards Australia. Thank you to everyone who is in this category! We appreciate you.What do I mean by holding the rope? Read the account below about William Carey, a missionary to India in the late 1700s and early 1800s.
After hearing an account of the spiritual needs of India, the secretary of the meeting remarked: “There is a gold mine in India, but it seems almost as deep as the center of the earth. Who will venture to explore it?” “I will venture to go down,” said William Carey, “but remember that you must hold the ropes.”
