Is it all worthwhile?

I have found myself in the last week or two asking myself several times, is this all worthwhile? I know the Kingdom is invisible. I know we, more often than not, don't see the fruit of our labors. But still, I wonder, is it all worthwhile? The precariousness of our life in the ME, the financial uncertainties, the apparently unstoppable progress of Islam both in the West and the ME...it's hard to see any purpose in what we are doing here. Sometimes.

Hang in there! You will reap a reward in the Resurrection!
Don't despair.

3 Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4 Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land.
5 Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
6 Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall have their fill.
7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8 Blessed are the clean of heart: for they shall see God.
9 Blesses are the peacemakers: for they shall be called children of God.
10 Blessed are they that suffer persecution for justice'' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake:
12 Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you.

Well, sitting before my computer it would be easy to say : "Abu, goes on, it's the good fight".
( Whereas I of course think it is.)

What could I say? I really don't know. But I just read an article and it made me think of what you do : what happen when a part of a pagan country turn toward the Lord Jesus? Please read this : http://chiesa.espresso.repubblica.it/articolo/1340393?eng=y

I can just say anything more : thanks for what you do . I keep you and yours in my prayers.

abu,

There are many of us out here who gain insight, understanding, and encouragement from what you do. You have no idea who is working with you even though you don't know their names.

And I can truly say I know I wasn't worth it, but God saved me nonetheless.
