Who is the first apostle in the Bible? While it seems that we first find apostles in the gospel accounts when Jesus selected his twelve, actually none of these are first.

The writer of Hebrews tells us to "fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest." (Heb 3:1) Jesus is our first apostle. Jesus is selected as an apostle by His Father in Heaven, and sent to earth as God's representation, as God's ambassador, as God himself.

The outback of Australia is one of the most remote parts of the planet, and also one of the least populated. Over the years a number of ministries have endeavored to reach out to people living in the interior.

Last week Lloyd Gill has returned from Komasi in Ghana where he has visited and ministered for Dr Ben and his congregation. Dr Ben and his wife are among the finest of believers and have served the Lord tirelessly in the vineyard given them.

Ten years ago Lloyd was with Dr Ben but due to other circumstances has not been able to go back, even though he was able to visit many other African nations. Yet God has re-opened a door, and we believe great good will flow because of that. The best part is seeing what Christ is doing, and will do through Dr Ben.
