Rica: Let’s pray for Coto Brus
Poverty, alcoholism, drug addiction, rape and domestic violence are soaring.
Only God can do something, through His humbled people.
Elìas J. Villalobos, Chief Financial
Officer, Coto Brus
USA: I am a full-time evangelist.
With my wife, Carmen we have made short trips to Europe a land
for which we share a mission burden. Help us pray for our future
projects, England and Italy in particular. Would you like to exchange any
ideas about this?

Our goal . .
Is to go to the ends of the Earth and proclaim the message from the
Highest to those who have never heard about Jesus.
Rolando Mendoza, El Tigre.
East: How we can share the message of the cross?
It is not an easy challenge, but it can be
done. One point is clear: since September 11, all doors to open dialogue
have been shut; each party is trying to show the other that the other
side is wrong but none is willing to learn from each other. The Islamic
people are fully against anything with even a Western taint and, sadly,
the Gospel is tarred with the same brush. Though, I still think that the
Arab-speaking Christians living in the Middle East are the best prepared to
build bridges between both communities and between the East and the West.
They share the same world vision and culture than the Arabs, and have been
greatly influenced by the Islam. The Christians of the Arab world could
eventually be heard in the West as they are deemed to be neutrals in this
withdrawn for security reasons.
Dominican Republic: Requesting help of men and
With the vision of Jesus when He said to his Father that he wanted us to be
like one, as they are. I yearn for seeing that the colours and names of
different congregations do not act as dividing walls within the holy people
Pastor Antonio Aquino Mariñez, Santo Domingo.
Northern Uganda: Still getting
worst peace wise.
The rebels last week killed 28 people nearby and cut their heads and legs put
them in a big black pot and started cooking them but the government troops
intervened. Such is the state that we are in. It is in the New Vision
newspaper 28/10/2002 you can check it through the internet.

Mexico: Looking to Australia

California: Mission to Quito,
We will be working with the Inaquito Evangelical Church, taking up pastoral
responsibilities for the children’s ministry. We will also set up some
projects to reach out Ecuador’s children and to support other South American
countries. If God tells you to join us in this great effort and task, please

poorest household in town. Now, the mission is working in the well-off areas
Miguel Palomino, Presbyterian pastor.
India: Deep concern to start Bible School
I have started a small ministry called 'Evangelists for Christ'. Your free lessons will be of great help to me as God given resource for my ministry.
H.M.D Rathnakumar, Bangalore.
Mexico: Always thinking about Africa
Let me tell you that my heart pumps harder and harder for Africa every day. I
request your prayers so that I can get there soon and spread the word of God.
I would be obliged if you could send me any information.
Yazmin Aguilar, Puebla.
Uganda: Serious malaria has put
I am under heavy malarial treatment and now as I write I am a
bit ok. My thanks to all who are helping us both by prayers
Pastor George Purkweri, Lira.
East: God has honoured His promises once again.
He has rescued one of His children from the pit as he was on the verge
of disaster. One of the pioneers in the Islamic world had been brutally
beaten and had also a severe TB case: doctors had said he would
not live for over a month. A leader visited him where he was dwelling (on
the roof of an old building) and apart from leaving some food, money and
clothes, he could do little else. That same evening some thugs robbed him;
he was only left with the clothes he had on. The leader tried to get him an
asylum seeker permit from the UN but this takes time. Anyway, God had
something better for him: miraculously, he has been admitted to hospital for
a month until he gets over. He has recovered almost completely; he is
thinking about his life and getting ready for the future. He will not be
able to return to his own country –his life would be at high risk-, but he
is not complaining about it. I admire his integrity: I have not grown up to
the extent of being ready to leave it all and totally and unreservedly
depend on God.

If you have been called by God to serve Him in Belgium, it’s because there
is plenty to do. Write to me.

We need missions people for short term trips around the rain forest with us. We need people who could help with medical assistance, education and
spiritual assistance. It will be a blessing. We request your prayers.
Diego Castro, Macas.

God has enable me to achieve many thing for His Glory with very small funds,
it really has been a miracle. God has moved mightily in special way, people
have confessed they weren't following Jesus with all their heart but have now
made a strong commitment to do so.
Pastor Edilson, from Brazil and Scotland.
USA: If you need revival . .
We are graced of God to minister the healing power of Christ with his
unconditional love. If your people need to be encouraged, if you hunger for
God, it could be the Lord would use us to bring that visitation! After many
years of working with Branham, Coe, AA Allen, Cerulo, Osteen we have fought
the good fight of faith and received anointing to release to others.
Evangelists Buford and Judy Dowell, Scottsdale, AZ.
India: Tamil Nadu bans conversion.
We have two missionaries working in this state and most of our believers are
Hindu converts. More and more people are coming to the Lord. Recently 144
Hindus and a pastor were reconverted to Hinduism by force at Chattisghat
State. We have two missionary families working in that state and they face lot
of threat and persecution.
Pastor Daniel and Sister Lily, Trichur.
Kenya: Rural areas need the word
more than ever.
People are physically hungry and spiritually hungry too. Prayers are needed
for breakthrough and men to go out there and take the good news.
Jimmy Wakaimba, Eldoret.
UK: Some races are won . . .
Some races are won by the tortoise not the hare, maybe this why Paul said “I
do not account myself to have laid hold”. By the Lord’s grace I will be a
tortoise, vigilant for today’s little contribution to arriving at the
resurrection, calling on Him, feeding on Him in the word with prayer, being in
my spirit even and especially in the little things, giving thanks.
Tony Attwood, Carshalton.
‘Doulos’ has been in our port for 15 days.
We, in Libreville
have been extremely blessed
spiritually thanks to the abundance of books which have been sent to us. Books
written by Christians on ‘the challenge of HIV Aids’, ‘Creative
Evangelism’, ‘Great leaders of tomorrow’, ‘Seminars for the Sunday
School Teacher’. So many gifts that Christians have brought to our nation.
To God be the Glory!
Ivory Coast: Government and
There is a feeling of patriotism: the firms, the Civil Servants, the Churches
and even the people - all bring their financial support to the government in
'an effort for peace'. People don't want to talk about 'an effort for war'.
The refugees from the cities under siege are now in their thousands - women
and children fearing for their lives - because rebels will kill anybody - were
forced to walk miles to reach the Capital. Help for these people is coming
from all directions. The churches are standing in front of God's face and with
peace in our heart.
Pastor Tim, Abijian.
Peru: we have started an agency for missions.
We hope all brothers and churches with the call to work in Piura, Northern
Peru, contact us.

A Filipino in Taizé
Since I was in Taizé two years ago, how much has the climate among the young
people been affected by the situation in the Middle East? I still remember the
beautiful moments with the Palestinian youth in Taizé. One of them was a
Muslim girl who even went inside the Church of Reconciliation and prayed with
us. Her close friends are all Christians. I had always presumed that
Palestinians were fanatics. But it was in those simple, honest, warm moments
with them that my prejudice against them vanished. I am amazed at their deep
faith in God, amidst the uncertainty that surrounds them every day. Back here
in Mindanao, we celebrated the anniversary of the killing of our Father Rufus
with a fellowship meal with Muslim people that lasted all afternoon.

France: New mood of moral rectitude ?
France's reputation as the capital of libertinism is at risk after a complete
ban on pornography being shown on television was proposed. Leading members
from the government have called for centuries of self-indulgence to be rolled
back in favour of a new moral rectitude, enraging campaigners for freedom of
speech, pro-abortion groups and gay and lesbian associations. "There are
1,000 hours of pornography on our screens every year," said Philippe de
Villiers, a conservative deputy. "That has an obvious influence on a

Hawaii: Indigenous Peoples
People from many nations gathered to share their culture, very exciting, there
were some wild Korean drummers here so I feel quite at home with music and
dancing from many different nations, a wonderful celebration of God's colours.
