Pakistan: Many times I am asked 'Does it work?
You hear about many people repenting and receiving Christ, do they really
go on?' In 1990 a young girl heard the Good News and we led her in the sinner's prayer. Now in her twenties she is going on
with the Lord and serving Him in church. Manawar was 12 years old,
too young for the Bible School I took but he came and took notes
every day. That was in January last year. Now he is joint leader of a
group of ten boys who every day visit homes to read the
Word, sing hymns and pray with the families.

Austria: School of Mission among Persian
They are 10-18 Christians in three Bible studies. We think it will be for
us a privilege to be a part of Lord's Plan among Persian people and we are
sure that this training can bless the Church inside and outside the
country. So we hope to send you the lessons translated in Farsi. Does
anyone have any German translations available? It will be a great help.

builders, and expertise in many other fields.

Colombia: Story from the war front
Sister N and her husband just managed to escape with the help of a
doctor from a town where they had forged a life for 10 years, forced out
by the FARC guerrillas, who had already killed several believers.
They discovered this brave sister was the one who was secretly
distributing Bibles in the area with the help of believers in Villavicencio.
God used a non-believer, a doctor, to rescue her husband who was about to
be executed. The sister N, prayed with faith and the military commander of
the region came himself and got her onto a boat towards safety. They
have lost everything, they just have the clothes they stand in and a
Bible. Will you pray for them to find a new life.

Praying for Islamic world.
had a feeling to begin to pray for the believers in Nigeria and when we did
this at church, a lady stopped the meeting and said, "while Alice
was praying in tongues the Lord showed me that we must carry on praying for
the Muslim people." When I heard this I shook because I heard the same,
and the other sister broke into tears. Then Alice who was praying said,
"As I was praying the Lords poke to me and said, 'I am going to send my
word to these people despite all the voices that assassins have silenced,
and the converted women will be the messengers of the future."
Burkina Faso: Evangelism among the Fulani.
We visited 4 villages without any any public witness to Christ before.
Although there were no public conversions, there was a very positive
response and good chats. It was great sleeping under the stars on the sand
dune after showing the Jesus film and preaching. We had 'rare' Fulani
Christians come and help us. 600 people came to the film in Gorom. The two
wives of one man gave their lives to Christ. About 200 people came to my
yard for the first ever showing of the Jesus film in Tamacheq. The new
shelter for the Fulani meetings is finished. Please continue to pray for
all the Fulani believers.

India: Mafia man became sick . .
In hospital he was diagonized as both kidneys failed. As he had no money the
doctors sent him home to die. Meanwhile someone gave him a gospel tract on
healing and he came to our village church for prayer. God started healing him
as he turned to God and this healing and change in life touched his wife and
family. He was a Hindu and his wife was muslim. He was offered high amounts of
money and benefits if he would turn from Christ. He said I will serve only
Jesus who saved my life and healed me. The Bank for the Poor board decided to
help him with £40/$60 to start a fish business. The whole family will be
baptised in January.

Uganda: Thanks DCI World Christians.
I do promise you that we shall make the best use of your gifts both with the
Gospel and through giving materials things. I hope to give our orphans some
Christmas gifts. I tell you, here there are children who are the heads of
their families, both parents are dead and there are no relatives to help them.
By God's grace we want to bridge that parental gap. Some of them are suffering
Aids as a result of getting it during birth.

Vietnam: Tourists for ten days.
We found many things were quite different from what we expected with some open
doors for certain kinds of workers, especially non-westerners. It will be
exciting to see how God puts more workers on field in Vietnam in the future.
In one word what I feel about the people there - "wounded". After
hundreds of years of war and oppression from without and within, the people
seem beaten and so needy of a Savior. Jesus is obviously the answer. We
understand that there are many Vietnamese who are finding Him every day. The
persecution we hear so much about seems more political than religious the
Christians in the north where we were seem to enjoy relative freedom but the
Christians in the central parts have a lot more trouble. It seems awfully

Yemen: Three US missionary
doctors shot dead.
A suspected Muslim extremist shot and killed three American Baptist
missionaries and seriously wounded a fourth at a Baptist hospital in Yemen
December 30th. The attacker, a Yemeni, was arrested, and security forces were
searching for a militant cell that may be targeting foreigners and secular
figures in the country. Americans have been repeatedly warned to take security
precautions in Yemen, the ancestral homeland of al-Qaida leader Osama bin
Laden, a country where central government authority is weak in tribal areas
and where Muslim militants have found refuge.

Russia: State Duma gives
preliminary approval . .
For a bill denying entry to foreign nationals or expelling them from the
Russia. This will simply make into an explicit law what some of us have been
experiencing over the last four or five years: having our visas terminated
while living in the provinces, or being expelled and blacklisted from Russia.
Pray that the bill will be "toned down" before it becomes law.
Another new layer of bureaucracy will require us to notify the local
authorities one month before intend to travel anywhere in Russia outside of
the city where we are registered.

pages of studies, news
DCI World Christians funded ?
It's one of the frequent questions we are asked because everything
is free - the news, the Bible Schools, the support, the library
and we also try to help our colleagues who run the various language pages, as
well as missionaries and projects among the poor. The answer is that the
missions family that edits these pages is funded exclusively by the gifts of
believers and has no denominational or commercial support. We would be very
grateful if you would join with us.
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.
