“If Jesus were walking on this world today, he would be serving the Vietnamese. He wouldn’t say, ‘Change your government and I’ll serve you.’ “ – Pastor Bob Roberts Jr., Northwood Church
If that’s not a Quote-of-the-Day, I don’t know what is! Christians are often known for what they are against. It’s time the world knows what they are for. Here’s a story about a pastor and his church walking the walk.

Church evangelizing with service, not sermons
Keller congregation working to do its part in Vietnam

KELLER, Texas – An evangelical church in North Texas would seem an odd destination for a government delegation visiting the United States from communist Vietnam, where evangelism by outsiders is forbidden.
But Nguyen Van Kien, director-general of the People’s Aid Coordinating Committee of Vietnam, and others in his party spent Saturday night through Wednesday morning with members of NorthWood Church in Keller.
They went to a Texas Rangers game and the Fort Worth Stockyards, and they attended meetings. But these weren’t the real reasons they came.
“The main purpose is to convey the gratitude of our people,” Mr. Kien said.
