Church Planting in St Petersburg

Church planting can seem very romantic. The call to forsake everything and start over sounds like something every follower of Christ should do and thoroughly enjoy it.

Dave & Hanna Henson moved their family to Tver in Russia a year ago and this July are moving to St Petersburg for another year of language & culture, before they start to plant a church there.

They are currently in the UK however all there earthly possessions (apart from a computer & photographs) are in a steel lockup garage in St Petersburgh. All their possessions in garage #257.

I find the photo strangely inspiring. Much of the Henson's earthly treasure is in that garage, and yet by definition as Christians, nothing that garage could ever contain could compete for the reward they will receive.
