Go to All Nations!
That’s what Jesus said to his disciples in Matthew 28 (read it here).
Now, fristly, apologies for the long gap since the last “weekly” song! The transition back to the home culture always takes a long time and I also find it totally zaps my creativity for a while. Not to worry – a new song is here!
