If someone asks him, ‘What are these wounds on your body?’ he will answer, ‘The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.’ Zech 13 v 6

Listen Up, UK Speaks

"If you are unable to work legally in a country, what other option is there but to be dependent on the goodwill and generosity of others. Now if you were one entity on your own, but we are talking here about a wife and 11 children in addition. A tremendous burden upon those supporting.

If you are a missionary one can justifiably live by faith. But in this instance we're talking about a man on the run from US authorities in relation to serious charges of sexual misconduct. I'm certain that some of us in the UK, that have already helped the Rojas family, would not have done so if presented with the facts of this blog beforehand.

Question: Is your/our faith in the people of God or in the God of the people? There is a difference.

It's not easy to put such a large family out on the street. No Christian wants to see that. So what do you do? Try and find another believer or church that can support them for a season. On the cycle goes. Moving from place to place.

A US citizen that cannot support himself in the UK needs to return to the US where he/they can legally work and provide for his own. These are not easy sentiments to express but they are I believe pretty close to the bone."
