Gary Roosma, from OMF, begins his two part series on “Witnessing for Him” with an in-depth biography on Jean-Marc, author of one of the four gospels, and his missions in the known world of the time.
Most points about Jean-Marc are based upon traditions and historical assumptions, but Jean-Marc’s influence to the African churches develop the strong foundations and importance of the Gospel for the believers of the area.
Gary draws out a few final points to encourage believers and those who plan to go on missions:
1) Failure is not final
2) The gospel is worth dying
3) The call and the passion to go comes from God
