Fiji Islands: Hurricane Ami greatly affected the economy.
Once again, it gave God a chance to show His great power in providing for the
construction of our Centre. We have just been granted a licence to catch fish and sell fish. We asked the Fijian King of our area
and it was granted to us free of charge, the normal cost is $1000 if you are not
part of the clan. God provided a very cheap outboard motor to run the boat as
well. Come and join our work teams.
Marion Male, Labasa.
Reaching the unreached people in Spain.
I will be glad to have information on the regions of Spain
which do not have local indigenous churches and groups who do not have
the Scripture in their local language.
in Spain, do contact Argelio but be
kind to him, Spain still needs plenty of help if not quite in the way
that Argelio thinks. We are going
there this weekend. Les and
Pilar, the editors.

Congregation of refugees from terrorism.
There are 35 of us in a very precarious condition, some orphans, some
widows. We do not have our
own building or access to basic services so we use an abandoned house as our meeting place.
Is anyone who might be interested to assist us in any way ?
UK: Who do you know from Poland ?
A web evangelism team in Poland have some integrated
websites with very effective strategies and many ideas which could be adapted for other languages and
countries. Take a look at:
Tony Whittaker, SOON Ministries, Repton.
Looking for missionaries in Kenya.
Africa: We had a taste and didn't like it !
of sight of the TV news there has been a violent regime change and Patassé
has now gone. We are waiting for a new government. We
are searching for God's direction and try to pray so that He will give us
the solutions. The rebuilding of the nation will take a long time due to
all the damage and there was also a lot of sabotage. Christians have tasted what it was like to be under
the dominion of Middle East religion. A few days were enough to understand this terrible
reality. Will this wake the church up to take an increased interest in the
mission to Arabic peoples ?
Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Sudan, Uganda - we are hearing Anatole's
message time and time again from different people as Middle Eastern
religion spreads its wings while many Christian churches still
languish in lukewarm prayer and the seeking of personal prosperity. In
CAR they didn't like the dish that the Lord allowed them to taste.
Will you let it come your way ? Les and Pilar, the editors.

We need to correct the first draft of the translation and we are also
working on "The Word for Today" in Catalan. This will be the
first Daily Devotional in Catalan language. There are possibilities to
translate the Alpha Course into Catalan as well for the churches in the
East of Spain. I am going to Brazil in May, for a Mission trip and I will
be sharing about the School of Missions there and how we can use it to
train future missionaries and church workers.
Josep Rossello, Friends of God, Valencia.
§ In April we are
going to meet with Josep in Valencia. He is very passionate about Spain's
Catalan people and if you feel the same way, why not write and encourage
him. Les and Pilar.
India: Report from Andhra
This is one of the least evangelized states in India. People are least
educated, literacy is 20%. People are so receptive to the gospel and ready
for a change. 60 people responded in each village under a tree with
gasoline lamps and no microphones. My heart was really touched by the
condition of the people. Many women were women possessed and got
delivered. When people see the power of God in healing and deliverance
they are ready to throw away their idols and witchcraft things. Coveting
your prayers and support to find $50 a month to support our full time
Pastor D, Kerala.
Haiti: Serving the genuinely poor.
One of our brothers was in Haiti and
wrote, "Some years ago, several young adults decided to put money
aside to prepare a meal once a week for the poor in their part of Port au Prince. A young Haitian working in Florida contributes what is
lacking. Every Sunday, very poor people, some elderly, gather to wait for
the meal served by the young people. This is not merely a distribution of
food. You can feel that a relationship of respect has grown up between the
poor and those who are serving them. At the end of the meal there are big
smiles all round. The old people’s faces are particularly moving.
Everybody knows they can count on this weekly rendezvous. When was their
last meal? Nobody knows.
The Taizé Community, France.
§ The pure goodness
and humility of the Taizé people never ceases to amaze me, it is no wonder
that tens of thousands of European young people go and camp around their
church every summer to hear the gospel. If you are ever
in France - go.
Les and Pilar, the editors.
Great need of trained leaders.
Especially in the rural areas so we have started seminars to train them
and we use your material. May
God strengthen you so that you continue to be a blessing to
Ponce, San Salvador.
§ Thanks José,
it has always been our vision to equip those
brothers who do not have the means to attend to the Bible Institute, and
today we do it through the internet, which is a marvellous vehicle.

Singapore: God will work miracles in
your life . .
And in your work if you will only be obedient to what He wants to be done
in your ministry and give Him all the praise for God inhabits the praise
of men. It may look stupid to you but God will use the foolish
to shame the wise. In our trips to India three women began to walk and a
pastor's seven-month baby with pneumonia was healed. Jesus healed 2000
years ago and still heals today!
Rev. Jeanne Lee, Singapore.
Nepal: Praying to have orphanage in Nepal.
Because due to natural disaster, flood, landslide, many children became
orphan. So I have compassion on them. At the moment I can bear the
expenses for one kid from my earnings.
Now if a poor man in Nepal can do that, can't we all - and change the
world one child at a time?

Church “Jesus The Life”.
This is a missionary congregation located in a shanty "Favela do
Caju", in the city of Rio de Janeiro. Violence, destroyed homes,
alcohol, drugs are only few of the many obstacles we face. We have in our congregation dozens of young people willing to carry
forward the great commission, but they need training. We
want to equip them to be workers well acquainted
with the Scriptures.

DCI World Christians funded ?
Are We ?
It's one of the frequent questions we are asked because everything
here is free - the news, the Bible Schools, the e-mail support, the library
and we also try to help our colleagues who run the various language pages, and
support missionaries and projects among the poor. The answer is that the family that edits these pages
full-time is funded exclusively by the gifts of
believers and has no denomination or commercial support. We would be very
grateful if you would join our circle of supporters.
Pay Pal or this
page will make it possible. Thank you, as every gift whether small
or large in $, £, Euros or Yen will help us a lot.
