Jackie Pullinger at Missions Fest 2010

I just finished listening to Jackie Pullinger at the plenary session this morning. Her theme was on persevering in ministry even if it looks like there are no results. Or if your fruit quickly turns back to its old life. What is important is that we do the will of the Father, regardless of whether it appears we are accomplishing anything or not. She ended with a time of prayer for those who have been missionaries and given up, those who have tried to serve the poor and been rebuked or had their houses misused in return, and for those who have seen loved fruit turn their back on Christ. It was quite moving judging by the number of people who went forward. I can’t help but reflect on the difference between this message and Will Graham’s reflections yesterday on his grandfather’s successful ministry. Both are well known 20th century workers but the results and focus have been very different. Billy Graham focussed on bringing millions to the prayer of salvation, whereas Jackie Pullinger has focussed on raising up her spiritual children to live as Christ. Both are needed if we are to be the Church.

  1. I love Jackie and her ministry!!! If I had the money, I would ask her to come to the states and I would take her to different ministrys that I know so that she could bring her love, knowledge, truth, and anointing of the LORD!!
    May the Lord Bless and keep her and cause His light to shine in her more and more until HE appears!!
