On New Years Eve and next day, four churches in Central
Sulawesi were bombed two where I regularly preach. In the Ekklesia Church at
7 minutes to midnight, the church was near full, gathered around the altar,
kneeling, praying, when the bomb exploded. Pastor Moniaga said, “It is a
miracle that no-one in our church was killed. As the bomb exploded I saw people
being lifted up into the air. But no-one left the church. We just called on the
Lord and thanked Him for His deliverance.”
Thanks to everyone who prayed for Roberto, 9 years old.
The latest tests show no remaining cancer cells, the tumour appears to be dead
and there are no cells in his blood. Let's keep praying as the surgeon
has yet to close the brain membrane and the meningitis has to clear. Glory
We devote our lives to the poorest and most disadvantaged.
We are giving education to children to avoid child labour and developing
economic condition of rural women. Our aim is to empower the powerless and to
create self-reliant village communities, which are capable of solving their
day-to-day problems. Kindly try to support our programme. If you are interested
write to me and I will send you photos and details.
Can I ask you to pray for all kidnapped believers,
including my husband José who was taken 7 months ago. For me this is very
painful. Pray that he and all others will come home safe and the families will
know God's strength.

My church is very interested in missions. At the
moment we are working with Latin people in the USA and praying for Russia
because we have a vision for these peoples. We will be glad to receive any
information or contacts in either of these two countries.
Know anyone travelling soon to Tanzania,
Nigeria, Angola, Latvia, Guinea, Hyderabad, Hungary, N Thailand, Slovenia, or
Romania? Know anyone working on Negros or Panay Island, Philippines? Anyone want
a full time, 1/2 pay teaching job in Turkey? Know anyone who'd like two
profs come out and teach in Asia. Want to cooperate on an internet video mailing campaign?
Want to sponsor Afghan and Kurdish scripture tapes. Know
anyone who'd like to join outreaches to Algeria, Afghanistan or Iran?
I am personally very interested in the short-term missions
either in church planting or working as a pastor, training leaders or doing
consultancy in social work or with young people. I am the pastor of a
small congregation and I would like to contact Christian organisations who can
help mission groups who are working outside of their country.
Our new site concentrates on giving real spiritual
insights to all prophecy issues. Forty-five studies are
available free for republishing. Hundreds of pastors have visited.
We want to greet everyone through this page and say thank
you for the news and the Bible school studies. I am from Peru and live in
Cerro de Pasco which is about 12,000 feet above sea level. It is a
blessing for us to follow the studies, we only ask for your support in prayer.
small team to China comrpised three of us were born Welsh and an Eritrean,
himself a prison survivor of a Communist regime and now developing his own
Eritrean mission. Two of us are past our mid-sixties. We had joined forces with
our permanent China team, who focus almost entirely on developing the growing
Chinese missionary movement, which though underground, is probably the world's
largest. There is much missionary training taking place in some provinces of
China today, one underground leader and colleague has twenty centres under his
control. Another will open in the south in January. Some operate as commercial
interests, others, hidden far into the countryside, choose to live deprived of
heat and most basic necessities. China will one day enjoy freedom and field the
largest mission force that the world has ever seen!
The true art of memory is
the art of attention.
I am so happy to have found this page. Make the Lord
bless you and continue to bless you. Grace and peace to everyone.
was all I anticipated. I saw 150 young monks debating a lecture, all in their
first 16 years of training. I thought, "Multiply this by the 2700
monasteries of Tibet !" I have never seen anything like this in the
Christian world and I am left with a prayer, "O God, can you do this, for
the sake of your kingdom?" A move into Tibet is feasible, but like
David advancing on Jerusalem, he did not contemplate it until all Israel
had joined with him. He looked over his vast armies then again at the city, and
in spite of his military might said, "If anyone will take this city, it
will be by the water shaft" i.e., one at a time." I think that
this will be true of Tibet.
I am in charge of the missions committee and we are trying
to teach our members how important it is for those who remain in
church to be involved in doing 3 things for missions. To pray, to give
and to send more missionaries to more places - whether they belong to our church or not, the important thing is to support
We are a Ministry of faith, vision, and
compassion and we support and train leaders in Latin America. We
travel and pay our own expenses. We join with and put ouselves under
the local leaders o further the work with them. If anyone is
interested, please write.
One good friend of mine - Fatmah, a Kurd has just
received leave to remain in the UK. Other refugees are not so lucky and many
feel the pressure of waiting maybe 6-8 years for a decision I spend
some time with a family from Iran and they are very concerned as they have a 3 year old son and are seeking a better life for
him. Please pray for families and individuals such as these.
Two weeks ago my daughter and her family left for
Barcelona in Spain to support a church there. The Lord called them 6 years
ago. My own plans are to go and join them because a long time ago the Lord
spoke to the about working with the disabled people in Spain. I know it is
a difficult place and I ask for your prayers.
We are planting a French church in Ottawa
and have started the School of Missions course with 12 new
disciples. Two ladies were so excited to see that
they could connect to the Lord's vision, word and anointing. If your hear
that the fire of the Lord is burning in many French people's hearts in Ottawa,
take time to praise. If you need our French text, let us know and we will send
My sister wants to be a missionary. What can I do
with her, because she is only just ten years old?
Tens of thousands of a new rap version of the
Bible written in the style
of popular French street poetry have been sold in Canada. La Nouvelle Translation
has sold 140,000 copies in
France as well.
One cool judgment is worth
Two days ago we arrived here in Orihuela, Spain and now we are looking for other believers and a church to go to because
we do not know anybody here. If you can help us please write. Thanks.
I'm a member of Orthodox
Church and for me every mass is an exciting spiritual adventure for me. I'm really satisfied
and it only became possible in
last few years. Christmas was amazing there. My
mother is a professional translator and can work for you
in Russian. Pray for me to make right decisions in ministry
and work. Our latest plans are trips with our charismatic friends to distant villages to evangelize
locals and visit orphans.
We are looking for two missionaries under 30 years old to
teach children. We will pay their fees at the
Christian University and they will live in the same centre as the abandoned
children. We can pay 150
dollars a month and expenses but they have to pay 50 % of
their travel and be willing to study. After three years
they can go home or stay, which ever they wish.
I attended a wonderful consultation by the World Evangelical Alliance on working
with refugees at all stages of the 'highway' from refugee-generating
countries, through countries such as Greece to refugee-receiving
countries such as the UK. I'm involved with a voluntary group seeking to help
asylum seekers and refugees. It's a secular group, but many Christians are
Do you remember Robert, 9 years ? Last
year we asked you to pray for him because he has cancer.
After treatment the doctors hoped to operate and find a dead tumour but the surgeon said the tumour was
enormous and now the child has gone down with meningitis. This is all very sad
and his mum is distraught. A few lines of encouragement will be welcome
and so will your prayers.
Never meet trouble half
We arrived at a time of unrest in Central African Republic,
and we often heard gunshots. Other realities here include witchcraft and the
increasing hold of Islam and poverty. Schools and hospitals are closed more than
open. Disease and idleness lead to apathy and dullness but Anatole Banga and
many other men of God are standing firm in their faith and in prayer for this
nation and for it to be a blessing to other nations. Nights of prayer are
common, and there is a tremendous love of worshipping the Lord.
In Colombia we have a 50 year civil war and rural
people are the greatest victims of the violence,
poverty and hunger. More than 90% of them know nothing
about Jesus. Most of the big churches work in the cities but we are called
to the country. Please help us in prayer, we need a car, bibles and
materials for evangelism and education. We want to open feeding centres
for poor children and though we are a small church with help us we can move forward.
On Friday 18 Jan I fly out to a conflictive part of Asia for a month and then on to India for
conferences in Mumbai and in Assam, then into Bangladesh for a two weeks
visiting Schools of Evangelism. Then its Bible College and
students in Orissa for a month, two weeks in Balasore and 10 days in the south.
I would really appreciate your prayers.
I look forward to news from the mission field. I
have been called to go to Equatorial Guinea.
Dr George Carey is to retire as Archbishop of
Canterbury later this year. Dr Carey, the leader of an estimated 70 million
Anglicans worldwide says his retirement will be on October 31.
We have been called to open a ministry for
missions to let people know about real needs and teach them that when we put our own needs before the others we cannot be blessed because
of our selfishness, but if we focus on the needs of other people, God
takes care of ours.
Please send us some bibles and tracts in French
and English for our evangelism. We are in a Muslim country and it is somehow
difficult for them to believe the truth.

Name withdrawn for security reasons
Unknown gunmen gunned down Michael Stachofsky Friday night at his home in Mbale. According to police, the killers attacked at 3 a.m. after cutting through fence and windows. They stormed the American’s bedroom and ordered him to give them money. They struggled with Michael and then shot him at point-blank range. The attackers never took anything. Stachofsky’s wife, Patti-Sue, survived after she sprayed the attackers with red pepper. Police would have responded to the attack had it not been for the lack of their one vehicle.
