When Dr. Stanley visited Patagonia in South America several years ago, he had the opportunity of a lifetime to hop on a plane and go to Antarctica. The tiny church pictured here, named Holy Trinity, is one of only eight churches on our southernmost continent. It’s a reminder that there’s no place the Lord cannot go. Psalm 139:7 says, “Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?” As King David acknowledged, God’s love reaches to the ends of the earth.
Building the church pictured above was a labor of love and spiritual devotion for those responsible—transporting the supplies, overseeing construction in the harsh Antarctic conditions. But for them, it was worth it to establish a house of worship as a place to experience God’s presence together with His people. And now, standing there against subzero winds, it serves as a reminder that the Lord’s praise covers all the earth (Ps. 48:10). God is able to reach every heart, no matter how far from home we travel.
