Looking for an architect.
We have a bamboo church and a building project, but we need
plans and design. It would be very expensive for us to contract an architect
here. Can anyone help help us with its design? We would save a
lot of money.

Take this opportunity to bless: You simply say this personalised
"The Lords Prayer" for a person who know." Our Father, who
are in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, your Kingdom come, your will be done,
on Earth as it is in Heaven. Give him this day, his daily bread
and forgive him his trespasses and help him to forgive those who
trespass against him. Lead him not into temptation but deliver him from
evil. For yours is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
Amen." Do it right now.

Look among the nations – be
In Hab 1:5 God instructs us to look among the nations, because
amongst them his handiwork is seen. In the nations His purpose may be
witnessed and amongst the nations His purpose is being fulfilled. The
nations are the tapestry upon which God's story is being woven and written to this day.

Stories from an expedition to China
This is a strong and growing sect in China who believe the Jesus has
already come again as a woman called "Lightning". These
people operate in a subtle way, often infiltrating underground groups,
posing as born-again believers to invite people to meetings.
Often people are drugged and brainwashing techniques are used. They
especially target leaders. Recently they fooled 30 of the leaders of one
large movement to go to their meetings and they were imprisoned and
drugged. Thanks to the Lord's intervention all have now been
released but they have suffered a lot and some do not want to continue in
ministry. Another leader went along to a Lightning meeting but felt
uncomfortable and left. She did drink some tea and slept so long
that she wonders if that was drugged.

Stories from an expedition to China
The sleepless night enabled us to pray. Lying there I seemed to be
"visited" by a procession of animals, not flesh and blood, but to do with whatever spiritual powers
had a hold on that place. One animal returned more often than the others,
a monkey with an almost human face, dressed in human clothes. A week later a conversation with a young lady
turned to Taoism and she said
that the major power was a monkey who wore clothes!

Both villages are nearby. The cause is the death of a young man by

other, and now they are ready to kill to revenge this death and old wounds
as well. Please pray!

Peace is fundamental to
the transformation to our communities.
The peace that my country needs, and indeed many other troubled nations of
the world is the God kind of peace. The God kind of peace pursues harmony,
complementy activity and relationships at the interpersonal, ethnic, and
even global levels. I am involved in initiatives to promote dialogue, peace
and reconciliation in my nation. I dream of an institute that will
train church leaders in Africa in conflict transformation skills. Please
pray that God may bring along people of a similar passion to make the dream

We struggle with the

But the Bible tells us that those who believe on Lord Jesus Christ and are
cleansed with His Blood all are one caste, Christians. Most
villages follows castism and in the towns castes only help their caste

service in Belfast widely celebrated
Members of different Protestant churches in
Belfast were invited to a Catholic church for a cross-denominational
service. The Presbyterian minister gave the sermon and something unusual took
place. There was applause from everyone.
Under the title of "Keep Hope Alive", he spoke on reconciliation
after years of violence and deeply-rooted hatred and about
the hope, faith and vision that the Gospel brings.

Extreme drought in Southern Africa . . .
Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and
Zimbabwe are all suffering. We know that for these poor people, the future is very bleak.
The issue is not just drought, but a combination of civil wars,
economic mismanagement, the HIV/Aids, self-serving politics and even
pure greed. Yet God is concerned about starving people. They
need to be given necessary food and care now and the Water of Life for their eternal destiny. The issue as always is who will go ? Who will

Reaching out to destitutes and beggars in Senegal
We witness to them and pray for them because Jesus died for the destitutes the
same way He died on the Cross for the people in the palace. In Senegal the
nobles only want to identify with prosperity preachers with big suits. We need
supporters to help us reach the less privileged on the streets.

Jurgen Moltmann writes in, "The Church
in the Power of the Spirit"
Reading the Bible with the eyes of the poor and hungry is a different thing
from reading it with a full belly. If it is read in the light of the
experiences and hopes of the oppressed, then the Bible's revolutionary
themes - of promises being fulfilled, of exodus and liberation, of
resurrection and new life, of the abundant life through the Spirit of God
coming to all who by faith will believe and receive, then these themes come

Scams from Nigeria, be forewarned and
These many scams are aimed at Christians with very convincing Christian
words to draw in the naive or just-plain-hopeful believer. You may be so
'savvy' that you wouldn't be taken in at all, then again you might. Or a
friend might ask your advice. Many have lost thousands of
pounds. Take note of this website: http://www.crimes-of-persuasion.com/Nigerian/lostwills.htm
