Welcome to the September 1st,

From the heart of the Middle East . .
Two of our new convert friends have disappeared and we do not know what
happened, that is very discouraging. Besides, one of the main leaders for
the movement that we have in the Arab world has come under death threats.
The fanatical of his country arrested someone else with the same name but
released him after realizing the error. I have been frantically trying to
make arrangements to help him to move out, but there is nothing I can do to
speed up the bureaucracy. We were supposed to go to Kurdistan but once in
Syria the authorities completely refused to let us in. Please pray for us,
the Lord knows our names.

From the Sahel - the edge of
the Sahara . .
Two young guys have recently given their lives to Christ, and have started
coming to our Fulani meetings, and a third has said he wants to too. Two
others are preparing for baptism. Please pray for them all. After 2 weeks
without rain, I went out to the bush to visit S and stayed the night. Then
the rain poured down, leaving me with a couple of lakes to wade through and
a waterlogged motorbike stuck 5 miles from home but please keep praying for
more rain! J heads a project to help orphans, but it has not yet been able
to start due to lack of finance to help the children with food, schooling,
clothing etc. Please pray that the Lord leads. I'm still Learning: This
week, after talking with a muslim I tried to close with the blessing
"May God protect us from Satan's schemes." Unfortunately, I said
"May God protect us from Satan's trousers." Amen to that.

508 Indian children in our Children's
home in India.
The latest little girl was found abandoned in her locked home as few days
ago. The children are currently housed in five locations. Our website has
photos and more news. Every time I see how much we are able to achieve with
so relatively little, I rejoice! We have transformed 500 lives, and many
more are being blessed through the work as well.

Converted to Christ nine years ago
This can only be the work of the Holy Spirit because I was
actively engaged in politics and did not have any spiritual interest.
I believed in God, but did not invest time in Him. No one preached
the Gospel to me or invited me to church.
But God in His mercy came to meet me, and showed me how empty was my
life without Him, so I surrendered completely to Him. He led me to to some
evangelical churches and to believers that discipled me.
Since the moment of my conversion I felt called to become a

Different nationalities visit
Egyptians and Koreans included all made a visit for mission training
purposes, discreet evangelism and to encourage believers. “(They) need to
know that Christ is for this country and the people,” said one young man.
“We are praying that the State would recognise the church here.” That
prayer is gaining force and faith in the country in question, and I believe
that there will soon be some expression of a church that is legal! It is a
joy to see part of the national church filled with vision and passion. They
are still so small, but are finding courage and inspiration from the Holy
Spirit. Believers often struggle when it comes to building unity and trust
among themselves. For example, a family of believers we know who play a
leading role in a group meeting in a major town have suffered greatly with
divorce. Some of this was because the daughters had turned to Christ and
their husbands had divorced them.

God healed many and set free hundreds .
Last Saturday I went to a village called Chettukuzhy, which is a hilly place
where there are a lot of Cardamom and Tea plantations. The missionary there
was in 21 days fasting for God’s dealing in the village. Six hours non-stop driving through the hilly rough roads has made us weary and sick. With
no time to rest I went to preach the word. Three hours ministry has resulted
in forming a church with 120 people. God healed many and set free hundreds
from demon-possession. These people are ready to be baptized and worship the

Summer 2002 in Taizé
The young adults taking part in the meetings in Taizé are more numerous
than ever this summer. The last week in July they numbered 4800. One group
was from Japan, another from Timor Loro Sae ; as well as young people from
all the continents who have come for several weeks or several months. Young
people come from the East of Europe, Central Europe and from ever further
East. Five buses make the journey from Romania to Taizé every week. There
are also groups who make the journey by bus from Russia.

I am a member of a church in Cameroon.
What makes news from this end is that some men who were pretending to be men
of God as pastors, were dismissed. Their dismissals came because they were
interested in earthly things like the church funds and preaching what is not
the Holy Bible.

News about the lady who was selling her
son for 30.000 shillings.
She came with that baby now walking and they want to stay in Lira. So I am
trying to settle them here and the others who came with her. Security in
Northern Uganda is getting worse every day. We are receiving death news and
people running to Lira town for safety every day. In the centre of Lira town
we are still safe but all round the city people are sleeping in the bush
every night in fear of the rebels. The rebels when they arrest people they
either kill them or burn them alive. Bodies are brought to Lira every day
for burial. So thanks to all DCI
WorldChristians people for your help both financially and through
prayers for us.

Indonesian Christians Left Defenseless
Before Jihad Attackers
Please pray for Christians of Central Sulawesi Island in Indonesia who are
again being attacked by jihad terrorists. In most cases the security forces
do nothing to protect the local Christians. The village of Sepe was burned
by an advancing mob dressed in black ninja outfits with automatic weapons.
Earlier Christian men were attacked, shot at and hacked at with machetes
while they were going to or from their gardens or riding along on their
bicycles. There seems to be no safety for individuals or for villages. The
Eklesia Church in Poso was burned down a few hours ago, the second time in
just over six months that these events have taken place.

Becoming fashionable to focus upon Europe as
a mission field?
Some say it is now the dark(est) continent. A recent survey apparently rated
UK as the second most godless nation in the world. Personally, I have to
wonder what criteria were used in such a survey, when I compare the UK with
nations, especially Islamic and Communist, in which the open persecution of
minorities, in which barbarous and torturous practice - by government
agencies - are acceptable and, above all, freedom of conscience is denied.
None of this is true in the UK.

Our church grew in the middle of a war
The church was born 8 years ago, our doctrine is sound, and we stand for the
gospel in the middle of the war that is lashing our nation. We use the
vision of the `12 tribes and in 7 years we have opened churches in 7
towns. This for us is a miracle of the Lord, as we have grown from 12

What is Operation Transit ?
Operation Transit puts Christian materials in native languages into the
hands of hundreds of thousands of North Africans as they pass through
European ports on their way to and from their nations. The ministry is
busiest during the summer months when much of these materials end up in
Morocco where they are read, viewed, or listened to and often shared within
the families and personal networks of those who receive them.

I highly recommend www.seedsowers.com
They have some of the most amazing books I have ever read including one you
can download or request free called 'Revolution'. This book records the
first 17 years of Church life from Pentecost and I guarantee that it will change your life.
Its free, it's a full
length quality book and it centres round a deeper experience of our Lord
