Tonight I ate dinner with John Bouquet who is also teaching at Word of Life this week. Because his church is located in an area with many Amish people, they support a ministry called Mission to Amish People. John said there are 60-70 former Amish who have come to Christ and now attend the church he pastors. Joe Keim who heads up the ministry was raised Amish and ultimately left the community when he came to Christ. He is now a deacon in the church John pastors. John said, “Ray, the website will blow you away.” And it did. They send 6400 Bible lessons out to Amish families every month. The stories are quite incredible of how God has opened the door to share the good news of God’s free grace with many Amish, especially the young people. This is the sort of niche ministry most of us never know about.
