Are you in Canada ?
| I am coming to Canada and want to find
a church there. Where can I get some email addresses?

way is to get a list is go
to Google and type in <Churches + Canada> or

Mexican missionary in Vienna
|We are working amongst Afghan refugees
and our church meets in a basement. We have 17 Middle
East people and our team is from Mexico, USA, Germany,
Austria and Afghanistan. This is what Jesus has done for
Cesar Sotomayor, Mexico
Looking for Friends of Africa in Europe
|This October, I will be ministering in
missions conferences in Portugal, England, Germany, France
and Spain. I would like to get in touch with pastors interested
in missions in Africa to exchange some information. I
have some free space in my diary so I could visit more
churches in Europe. We are organising a missionary impact
in Angola by May 2005. Our desire is to take pastors,
missionaries, workers and people who love missions and,

|That our God is good and great in all the
earth. Nothing escapes His providence and I am reassured.
Not one leaf of a tree falls to the earth without His
will. In these troubled times, His word is a lamp to our
feet and an inestimable treasure.
Jesus Loaiza, Nice.
of Heaven on Earth
|I was playing the keyboard
during our meeting when the person next to me was
touched by the Holy Spirit and began to laugh. My
minister said to me "you are also about to
be touched " and while still playing, I also
began laughing under the anointing. Then I fell
forward and my head bumped the keyboard and this
is where a miracle took place. Sounds of harps came
from the keyboard and we saw blue lights that sparkled.
My minister said "Dominique, what are you doing?"
thinking that the music came from me. But it does
not even exist in the keyboard and there are no
blue lights. The Lord allowed us to hear the pure
music of heaven, it was magnificent!
Hungry for God's word in Hungary !
|We are very happy as we could take part
in an evangelisation campaign in the town of Tatabanya.
Those were six days of hard work and long but the response
from the people was amazing. Many heard the word of God
and many still took a decision for Christ.
Viktor and Miriam Nemet, Velence
600,000 villages waiting for gospel
|This means even if we train 1,000 missionaries
a year and send them into these villages it will take
600 years to evangelize India. If we train 10,000 and
send them it will take 60 years. So my burden and vision
is to train more nationals in church based Bible schools
for two to three years and send them into the mission
fields. If we won't harvest the Muslims or the communists
will and we will be accountable for their blood. I am
looking for partners to work with me in this project.
I am just back from South Kerala after opening our latest
Bible school for 12 full time residential students.
Pastor Daniel Varghese Kizhakkevila,
Focused on rural unreached.
|Our aim is to take the
message of Christ to the unreached lost and plant
churches. We are also trying to bring together all
the independent pastors and evangelists who are
struggling in the remote villages to train and support
them in building their churches.

| We are translating to
know more about our Lord Saviour Jesus Christ.

Dear Rev. Babu, God bless
you but wait a minute, because you can get all of
our 85 School of Mission discipleship studies already
translated into a Telegu book from Pastor Sammy
John at Narsapur. They are also available in Hindi
from Nagpur or direct from our website.
Possessed man freed by Jesus
| Last night we went to a man who was strongly
possessed by many demons as he had been practicing magic
for a long time. Here in Indonesia we have many shamans,
witches and dukuns who attract and enchant a lot of people.
In the name of Jesus, the greatest name, we burned all
the amulets he had and as we did my wife could see spirits
coming out in the form of snake, scorpions and an old
man with a typical hat. Those spirits attacked him as
they went and we saw him crawling like a snake, saying
magic words, moving his hands and struggling with his
stomach and head. It took 2 hours to free him and lead
him to Christ. We praise the Lord for being such a great
Deliverer for this family, and for putting their names
in the Book of Life. What happened involved several spiritual
gifts, visions, discerning of spirits, words of wisdom
and more which indeed still exist and are given by the
Holy Spirit. You are not cessationists are you ?
Yoppi Margianto, Biblical
§ No Yoppi, we too just want more and more of Father,
Son and Holy Spirit. Here in the UK many of the churches
that teach that the gifts ceased in the first century
here in the UK are declining in numbers, while the churches
that allow the Holy Spirit to have freedom to honour Jesus
and minister His love and power to the people are growing.

Mexican missionary in Japan
|Please pray for us as Japan needs more
workers willing to sow the seeds of life in this country.
There is too much to do. Japan needs God.
Karina Keiko Shiyama Avalos,
We recently produced the first graduates in our school
in southern Sudan, a troubled part of the world. Edward
Kamau was one of our third course graduates here in Nairobi.
Last year he was sent to Sudan as a missionary and he
is presently involved in planting churches and training
institutes in the remote places of the south. He is our
pride in the Lord. The school has already grown to be
famous in the Nimule. The candidates are already rushing
in for the September course but we have a waiting list.
We praise the Lord for raising men and women of God through
us even in a desolate place like Sudan.
Paul Lee, Korean missionary
§ Paul, I am deeply impressed
with all of your work and the way the Lord is moving in
and through you, your prayer, your faith and your sacrifice.
I don't know of anyone who has done more with our materials
than you have in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Sudan,
Burkina Faso and China. Through you my own dreams, hopes
and callings are coming to pass. The news about what you
have done for the poor people of the Sudan has touched
my heart. My friend George Purkweri of Lira, Northern
Uganda has left today for another part of south-west Sudan
carrying seeds, goats, tools, saws and Bible School materials
to bring spiritual and material renewal to a four villages
which have been left helpless and hopeless by the civil
wars. Our love and prayers,
Les and Pilar.
Call me - I'll come !
|I graduated from the Bible Institute two
years ago and feel the Lord calling me to serve Him on
the mission field in Central America. I am an electronics
and mechanical engineer and have studied agriculture and
building. I have been a missionary in Chihuahua for two
years and I currently teach at a Bible School.

Prayers and tears is the price
|Our call is to the uneducated, spiritually
hunger folks God gives us. There are many unreached animist
villages around us and our urgent need is to raise spiritual
leaders of integrity. Too many of our so-called ministers
here are heavy smokers, drunkards, some are drug-traders,
some alcoholics, only handling the Lords work as
a business that brings riches. They have no passion for
outreach to animist villages unless there are finances
involved. My fear is to see that this harvest field left
without labourers, I recall what my father spoke to me
from his death bad saying, "Your field is worth your
prayers and tears." The kind of help we will always
need is prayer and your presence to give Bible teaching
for sinners and saints.
Philip, Myanmar, Asia.
Abducted by Maoists
|Our Nepali missionary Besh's life is in
danger as radical insurgency group Maoists forcibly abducted
him a week ago for their purposes. As of today, he is
still being held. Our GFA Nepal field leaders do not know
his condition or his whereabouts; all they know is that
his life remains in grave danger. They have prayerfully
sent another missionary to search for Besh. More than
200 people have been abducted by the Maoists and killed
without mercy. Some 9,000 lives have been claimed since
the insurgency began in 1996. Missionaries are even more
at risk as they travel to share the Good News. Latest
news on Besh is at http://www.gfa.org/urgent
President - Gospel for Asia
Whose flag are you flying ?
Over 1,000 people gathered for four days to be challenged
about worship, fellowship and witness at the Presbyterian
Conference that sets out the strategy for the church in
Ireland. Ken Newall, the Moderator said he would like
to see churches with no national flags because first and
foremost we are Christians, ambassadors of the Kingdom
of God rather than of a nation. If you really want flags
outside your building, let them be like those five star
hotels which have flags from all the nations flying over
their entrance doors.

Tell me about Russia please
|Since I was 8, God called me to pray for
Russia and now I am preparing to go there in 2007. I would
like to receive some information about Dagestan y Chechnya.
If anyone in Asunción, Paraguay, could recommend
a teacher of Russian to me, I would be very obliged.

surgeon shaken by Peru
| Today was very hard medical missionary
work, we finished a health campaign in Quirihuac after
treating over 700 people many of whom welcomed Christ
as their Saviour. Many of my patients, after getting the
diagnosis and treatment for their diseases, seemed very
open to the Gospel and asked to receive the Lord Jesus
into their lives. I prayed with young people and adults,
men or women on countless occasions, each one confessing
their sins and asking for Jesus to come into their lives.
I have never felt what I am experiencing here in Peru
in the middle of absolute poverty, disease, delinquency,
drug abuse, robberies and crime, these people surrender
their lives to Christ and leave with a special radiance
worshipping the Lord with joy and happiness.

Aids patient meets Jesus
I brought one of our Thai AIDS patients to Christ's feet
last night whilst on a home visit. Jesus did it all in
full view of a large Buddha statue, paintings and other
demonic items that were in her home. This lady, 30, was
a strong Buddhist all her life. Jesus led me to her and
gave me the opportunity to speak with her and Jesus did
the rest. The lady is terminally ill with full AIDS. There
was five strong Buddhists in the room so am hoping that
they will also give their lives to Christ. My wife Aree
and I also prayed for her healing by laying on of hands.
We have great hope that Jesus will heal her, her name
is Khun Orn.
Gareth and Aree Lavell, Chaing
|The Lord showed us that a Christian lady
was sick and close to he death so we prayed all night
long for healing. During the last school year this sister
had paid the school fees for all our children and we reminded
the Lord of this. We could not go to pray for her because
her husband is in the military and we can't get in to
the barracks, but next day she was brought us almost dying.
After the prayer and the laying on of our hands, she instantly
was healed. It was just like the Dorcas story in Acts.
Jesus is always the same, to Him be the glory.

|For me the Great Commission is Tunisia.
I work in education and would like to go to Tunisia as
a working teacher or, as they say, a tent maker.
Héctor Salinas, Paraguay
| Assamadou the little boy I adopted from
birth speaks some French now, he lives with a pastor.
We are doing a little fund raising towards an ox, a cart,
a plough for his grandfather. His village is extremely
poor. AEAD, your DCI partner in Burkina have a programme
to train a farmer to care for the animal and teach him
how to prepare the land prior to sowing seeds.
Marie-Therese Lannuzel, Croydon.
§ Our friend Marie-Therese first went to Burkina
Faso a few years ago following in our footsteps. No-one
can ever say that a lady alone, in her middle years, can't
make a big difference in a poor country. Marie-Therese
has done more than many a church and we can't admire her
enough. God bless you Marie !
Les and Pilar, the editors.
The man is a success who has lived well, laughed often,
and loved much; who has gained the respect of intelligent
men and the love of children; who has filled his niche
and accomplished his task; who leaves the world better
than when he came into it, whether by an improved poppy,
a perfect poem or a rescued soul; who never lacked appreciation
of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked
for the best in others and gave the best he had.
