Join me - church
planting without a penny . .
Here is a good book in English and
other languages that you download free or get for almost free - Pioneer
Evangelism from Thomas Wade Akins E-mail. Website
about church planting through home churches, a perfect strategy if like
me you have no money. I started a church without a penny, about a month
ago in a poor area with plenty of drugs, sexual abuse, crime,
witchcraft and voodoo. We are using people's homes and garages to meet
in. I am training the people to become church leaders and to disciple

This week our
partner in India
has opened a sewing machine bank. . .
with 20 machines which will be paid
for from the family earnings. Pastor Daniel also gave paraffin lamps to
rural pastors which means they can hold meetings after dark, he gave
Bibles to children and this month he will be giving out cycles to
mission pastors so they can reach more remote villages with the gospel.

14-year-old boy was almost dead . .
People brought him but his body was
cold and his limbs were curled. Villagers were preparing for his
funeral, when the missionary was invited to pray for him. The
missionary introduced Jesus as the one who can raise the dead and give
hope to the family. He prayed for Lakidas and the Lord who raises the
dead raised Lakidas from death. Now he is a living witness of the
resurrection power of Jesus.

impressed by a hunger and thirst for God's word
I know that this is the true meaning
of revival, when you see people with a genuine love for their Master
and His word. This Saturday the School of Mission will double and our
Banking for the Poor is about to help 5 girl students from very poor
families to run a study club for kids so that they may have income to
help their parents.
church for the poor has gained two witchdoctors . . .
They have denounced Satan's
activities when they became refugees and had to live by begging for
food and basic needs. We also have lame and crippled people, street
children, widows, the deaf and orphans. People like these have
collected their used clothes to be sent to other desperate people after
the floods hit Uganda. With the goats that were bought for us by a
young man in DCI Spain we selected refugee widows with two or more
orphans and each got one big female goat which will begin to lift them
out of poverty.

wants to tell the world about Burma . . .
I hope you know about
discriminations, persecutions and even sometimes tortures faced by
Christians in my country of Burma. As Christians, we have to take
action on this but in a peaceful, non-violent way. I have done the
research and written a book which if it could be distributed widely
concern for Christians and other minority groups will grow and people
could help us by pressing their governments to take more actions
against the military regime. I understand that without a penny, only a
very Good Samaritan could print and publish for us. But I promise, the
book is unique . .

§ Pascal, there is no formal procedure
to register with us. It will be enough to tell us all about
yourself first of all and then your School and its goals and projects.
Also tell us a little about your students and how and when you meet,
and what you are doing with the studies. A photo and a
confirmation that you have read the Leader's Manual and are broadly
following the advice in it adapted to your people and culture will be
always be welcome.

I had a sickness called
espondiloaltritis zero negative which attacked all my joints and was
destroying them causing me terrible pain and swelling. My kidneys got
infected as well so the doctor gave me a massive doses of steroids
which will work but have their after effects. Finally after I asked
everyone I knew to pray for me I began to recover but please keep
praying for me till I get over this completely.

DCI Schools of Mission growing in
In Mtwara Pastor Charles has
mobilised several pastors in order to cope with the big number of
students. In Dodoma Pastor Jackson told me that the numbers are
increasing and he is planning another class. His students truly enjoy
the lessons and they are practising what they are being taught so his
congregation is also increasing. Seymon Mwarabu has also started a
mission school in Manyoni.

seems that there is no more hope . . or is there?
Some portions of the church are
threatened by the so called prosperity doctrine and the drive for
titles like Bishops and Archbishops and the building of cathedrals. The
locusts have devastated the continent’s economy, and the
unwelcome consequences extend to every aspect of commercial, religious,
and national life. It seems there is no more hope; even the mighty men
of God have decided to migrate to the West, claiming the Lord gave them
a new vision of evangelizing Europe and America. I believe there are
still some seven thousand, as in the days of Elijah, who have refused
to bow to the prince of this world. We have those who go to the
West looking for knowledge, finances and resources; we have
some few groups who believe there is no need of going to the West; that
we should use the little we have to evangelize our continent. Where do
I fit in? I suggest, we merge the two groups and find a middle way.

Editor wanted for these news pages
The job involves choosing around 24
items of news from many incoming submissions in various languages, then
editing them in English to the smallest size possible without losing
the meaning. It is then a case of assembling the page and
sending it to our team of translators around the world who then return
the news in their own language ready for making into the next web page,
which is done in Indonesia. I have been doing this job for about six
years now with the great satisfaction of seeing people across the world
begin to work together in different ways, but it time for a new face
and a new style and a new vision. No-one in the DCI movement receives a
salary, not even me as the founder and director but we do take care of
each other as the Lord provides. You would need to be very familiar
with the atmosphere of our pages, who we are and what we are called to
do, and equally important what we do not do. If you would would like to
talk to me any more about this please e-mail me in English.

Christianity without Christ in many churches
People like concerts and the
"blessing preachers" who put prophecies before God's Word but there is
no compassion, character changing or zeal for God. So here we are with
what God has called us to do, bringing people to see His love, love His
word and be His imitators. Next week we open another School of Mission
for 15 more young people.

you help us please?

we can send to an orphanage in Zimbabwe please ? If you are in the UK

could use for bit of space and thinking time please let us know.
