Northern Ireland: Chinese lady accepts Jesus
Lily attended a meeting for asylum seekers which was packed with Chinese people. Soma the leader and a Hindi priest wanted Lily to talk especially with a Chinese lady through a translator. The Chinese lady is totally on her own, doesn't speak the language, and has cancer. Soma told Lily: 'I know you can pray for her'. Lily explained about our broken relationship with God, and how to restore it and the lady accepted Jesus in her life praying in Chinese, repeating the translation. It was the first time Lily has led anyone to the Lord in Ireland, and it was in English translated to Chinese! The lady told Lily she wanted Lily to visit her, and that the language barrier will be no hurdle at all, because she could understand many of Lily's words before they were translated! What a testimony of spiritual discernment!

Jose Luis Iparraguirre D'Elia, Belfast.


Thailand: Always in need of volunteers . .
Please lift up our work in prayer for all our mission needs and requirements to be met by the Lord. Charity work requires many blessings especially in a developing country like Thailand. We are trying to help so many who are sick and dying from HIV and AIDS and the poor orphaned children. Please ask people who are interested to contact me for full details or to be volunteers with us.

Gareth Lavell, Chiang Mai


Argentina: After my door to door evangelisation . .
Your studies
are excellent for further discipleship. Thank you.

Bangladesh: Signs of hope from Taizé people
An Australian visitor to Bangladesh describes how the Taizé brothers are trying to respond to the challenges of living a Christian presence within am Islamic culture. "They have schools, boarding houses and community centres and they sustain themselves with busy hands, providing hope for hundreds of locals burdened by poverty and injustice who see their three times a day prayers and visible work, and refer to them as "true believers"

Soul Winning Quote of the Month
If sinners will be damned, at least let them leap to hell over our bodies. And if they will perish, let them perish with our arms about their knees, imploring them to stay. If hell must be filled, at least let it be filled in the teeth of our exertions, and let not one go there unwarned or unprayed for. (Charles Haddon Spurgeon)

Middle East: Some good news at last. .
Many people are having dreams which lead them to accept Jesus. It is true that many others are being attacked but they show the courage of true servants of God. Last night, we talked with a young man who had been stabbed; he is out of danger and has no resentment although his face will always carry the marks of his aggressors. In another country, a high dignitary accepted Jesus and is committed to starting a new ministry. There are almost 1,000 believers, all waiting anxiously for Baptism in another very closed country. Well, closed to us, not to the Gospel. In short, some good news amidst political chaos.  Each time my husband travels he is followed and this has been going on for months. Please, pray for him.

Central Africa: Speaking at Pygmy Conference
2-8th June.  The Pygmies are despised as sub-human by many Africans and they are on the bottom of the pile as far as any help goes. Nation-en-Marche started a work among them 3 years ago.  Over 100 have found the Lord.  I have been asked me to challenge them with God's missionary heart.  They are the best ones to reach their own tribes, which spread across several borders. I don't think I have ever felt so inadequate about going anywhere as I do about this.  I know that the Lord is encouraging me, yet I am very aware that I have almost no understanding of the Pygmy culture or the kind of trials and persecutions that they have been through.  Physically I 5 ft 11 inches tall. I am terrified of snakes and we will be living in the middle of the jungle with the possibility of rebel troops and creepy crawlies!   I do feel a peace that certainly passes my understanding, so I go forward on that. 
Gail Dixon, Nations, Llanelli, Wales-UK.

Fiji Islands: NCTC training school project very well

The other day we where given a 4X4, needs fixing up but will be a great help. Then totally out of the blue God provided a mechanic to come and train one of our boys how to fix it up, as well as brush cutters, and chainsaws and outboard motors.  Amazing and he works free for us, but we will give him something for it.

Morocco: Jesus film on satellite TV

Argentina: How many missionaries are there in China?
Ricardo Trejo, Mar del Plata.

§ Pedro, to begin with there is no better place to look than the Operation World book by Patrick Johnstone which has all the Christian data for every country in the world. Les & Pilar, editors.

Pakistan: I have 55 pastors and 95 churches
Pakistan is not a Christian country and here Christians have many problems. So I request please pray for our churches and our pastors and my family. 
Bishop Yousef Barkat, Karachi

UK: Ghana Mission - thanks to all who prayed
We led two conventions with about 450 people from churches in Accra and the West. This was followed by church planting in Asanta where 80 turned to Christ and 12 were baptized. We praise God for His goodness, protection and blessing.
Dave Watts, Dudley


Spain: Mission trip in Brazil
The churches in Brazil are indeed alive although there is a lack of biblical teaching and depth in the Word of God. There is power, but members seem to be sheep without a shepherd. It is hard for me as I am a pastor, but I know God has wonderful purposes for this country and God will work through the lives of the leaders to establish a stronger church in Christ.

Josep Rossello - Friends of God, Alicante



§ To everyone who writes to ask for funds:

Thank you for your e-mails but I am sorry that we cannot publish requests for funds on our news pages, simply because if we put one here, then we will have to allow another hundred, and that would change the nature of the page and witness altogether. On top of that trying to raise funds through the Internet is almost impossible as everyone has heard of the 1001 scams and frauds that people have fallen for, so people do not respond. I know it is difficult for you all, and for many others too, including ourselves but as we pray and trust the Lord will show us His way forward.  He said to Paul, "My gracious favour is all that you need" and once we truly believe that, the promise is ours. Maybe our Money Forum page will help you ?

India: Begining among terminally ill children
As directed by the Lord I have resigned my job with a Christian organisation after 20 years service to begin a work among poor children, youth and women with a commitment to bring the love of Jesus though unworthy I am. Please pray for me and for the work that God will help me find the means.

Chile: I have a call to go to India
I need to improve my English. Do you have any contacts to study English in England -if possible, where it is not very expensive?
Sandra Paola Martinez Arellano

Papua, Indonesia: Mother tongue translators seminar

USA: I am a soul winner
The Good News of Jesus Christ so burns within me that I cannot refrain. Fear won't stop me.  Apathy won't stop me.  Lukewarm Christians won't stop me. No demon in hell will stop me from spreading the gospel. I will never lose the passion for souls that God has placed within me. I am a fisher of men, because I follow Jesus. Evangelism is at the top of my priority list. I will not get stuck inside the four church walls, but will go where my light shines the brightest.  I will lead my generation out of the darkness. When I am rejected, I kick the dust off my feet and go to the next unsaved person. I will not get discouraged and quit, but will win the lost until Jesus comes. I will never forget what my life was like without Him. I am a soul winner.

Argentina: I am about to finish my medical studies.
I long for going out as a missionary as soon as I get the degree. Meanwhile, I would like to pray for missionaries, so please write to me and I will intercede for you.

Fiji Islands: We have the most awesome students

So hungry for God, real nation shakers and I can see them going into the South Pacific doing just that. For years I had had this vision of sending young people through out the South Pacific in sailing boats. There is so much religion in the islands, but little relationship with God. But God is going to change that very soon. Feel it is coming, it is the time for the South Pacific, great things are happening here. We have 10 day students and 6 are boys who live in, and 3 practical students. We have just started the first of our students bungalows. God sure has brought us such a long way since I first started. DCI people were such an encouragement to me when I was starting out, thank you so much for all you did and the time you took to help us.

§ The Adventure of the Month
In the eventful weeks of travelling in China . .

I began to understand Chen and found appreciation for him growing by the day.  Chen’s grandfather had been in high places, specialising in the classics.  His father had been in government and so a ready target for the Red Guards.  He saw his parents led away and killed, his house and belongings confiscated.  In fear for their own lives, relatives refused friendship to this nine-year old.  Hidden deep Christian faith caused an Asian Chinese from far away to befriend him.  This man walked from village to village, repairing pots, pans and buckets for small amounts of money.  With nowhere else to go, Chen joined him on his travels, learned his skill and slowly embraced his faith. Later, for three years, Chen lived alone in a cave . . . twice Chen was imprisoned for his faith . . For those few short weeks as I began to grow to know this very extraordinary man, I realised that I had begun to know Jesus in a different light also.  The thought did cross my mind that at times when the presence of the Lord was very close, perhaps He wore the heavy disguise of a Chinese missionary called Chen.

How is DCI World Christians funded ? 
Who Are We ?


It's one of the frequent questions we are asked because everything here is free - the news, the Bible Schools, the e-mail support, the library and we also try to help our colleagues who run the various language pages, and support missionaries and projects among the poor. The answer is that the family that edits these pages full-time is funded exclusively by the gifts of believers and has no denomination or commercial support. We would be very grateful if you would join our circle of supporters.

Pay Pal or this page will make it possible. Thank you, as every gift whether small or large in $, Ł, Euros or Yen will help us a lot.
