My wife and I went went to the Island of Malta situated in the Mediterranean,near Italy,we enjoyed our holiday it was sunny .Their second language is English,and they drive on the left hand side of the road.Malta was a British colony,before that the French ruled, of course they have their own language,and culture. It was on Malta that the apostle Paul was shipwrecked,and the Maltese have named a bay after him,to commemorate that event on a small island the Maltese have erected a statue of the apostle Paul. I could see this statue as I sailed past it our way to the island of Goza,I thought of this wonderful man Paul,of his dramatic and totally unexpected conversion,of his phenomenal missionary activity,of his sufferings for Christ,of his writings to which we are so indebted.I would sum it up with three headings,/The challenge that he brings us,/The courage he showed,/
the compassion and love he manifested.
Dear God we thank you for your servant Paul and all you enabled him to do,and we pray for the people of Malta, that you would visit them with your salvation,in Jesus name Amen
