How the Lord dealt with us beautifully . . 
First my husband renounced the priesthood and we joined our lives. Two years later we joined the Anglican church and we ministered in Costa Rica for 2 years before we went to the Dominican Republic for 3 years. There we met the Lord and as a result the sick were healed, the demon possessed freed and visible changes took place in our denomination that caused a revival.
Guisella, Houston, USA

Javier Solana says . .
Mid East peace proposals have run out and that all new proposals are only the recycling of old ideas. My husband is developing a theology of peace to be shared with high officials in the Middle East. We need "prayer warriors" to support our ministry, and any material or suggestions regarding this issue
Gaby Phillips, Cyprus

 God has the power. . .
To strengthen every weak and poor situation. Power that we all can receive into our inner man through the Spirit. Always point the poor and needy to Christ, who alone has the resources to meet such overwhelming needs.
Tony Attwood, England.

Love and prayers for you from wild, wild east
We don't have Easter in Russia until the 5th of May - so may God bless this Easter for you.
Eugene Philimonov, Saratov, Russia.

We divide life into "Monastery" and "Mission"
Although we seem hi-tech and 21 Century what we are really trying to do at the heart of things is to get back to the mission model of the first 1000 years of Christianity which was very effective in the evangelisation of barbaric England of the year 500. In "Monastery" you have prayer, worship, hospitality and provision. In "Mission" you have people spreading the gospel and caring for the poor. Some people fit very well into the Monastery side of things. Others are always raring to do something in "Mission" - but they need the Monastery side for stability and resource, equally just to have "Monastery" without Mission makes little sense by itself. One day we would like a spacious house in Europe where people can come and meet and work together. One day !
Les Norman, The DCI Community in England.

From exile in Colombia . .
Upon being threatened we had to flee leaving behind our church and material possessions.  We also had to renounce the assignment in church as regional director for Comibam in Medellin. We need your earnest prayers in our behalf.
Rolando Rincon, Colombia.

Training leaders in Kiev for two years.
At first we used other material but now with your material in Russian we would like to use that in a formal way. The School is limited to 12 students to ensure good mentoring, we only train people who are in leadership position already but cannot attend one of the formal Bible Schools.
Pieter Dirk Steyn, Kiev, Ukraine.

A message to everyone...
Please do not forget to support missions, you will be abundantly blessed.
Hector Diaz Doto, Venezuela

Light and Hope district - only in name.
Despite it's name, in this precarious neighbor- hood  in the highest point of the city, the houses are built out of cardboard, scrap and plastic. Its inhabitants are simple people, the majority are children. We have a small room where we conduct worship and hold classes in the open air. 
Pastor Manuel Max Gonzalez, Durango, México.

The Jesus film is getting around 15 villages
The report this month show 549 new converts. Jesus is doing His work.
Pasteur Philippe Ouedraogo, Burkina Faso.

We love mission work .
I belong to a small church where there are many young people with the call to mission. I ask your prayers for them and also for our pastor who has been invited to work in Spain.
Javier Delgado, Bucaramanga, Colombia

There were problems in Bangladesh . . .
But in Orissa we have known the Lord's help and presence. We have been extremely busy travelling 14 hours a day then taking gatherings in the hill country among tribals and new believers. Very interesting and encouraging as was the graduation of 26 Bible students.
David White from the UK visiting Asia

Many of our children in church suffer. .
because at home they are ill treated by their fathers, stepfathers and older siblings. Some fathers punish their children for attending church but they keep coming. There are happy to come to our mission station and they enjoy singing praises to the Lord. We truly need educational materials for them.
Max Gonzalez Frayre, Durango, México.

I prayer a lot for the Korean Christians.
I also love my country and I want all Filipinos to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior.
Robert Valerio, Filipiino misionary to Korea.

Worsening crisis in Argentina, eye-witness -
The prices have risen dramatically but there is no work.  En Buenos Aires many people of all ages now have to live in the streets, families sleep in the city squares. You can see people eating from the rubbish and taking it home for the family.  Crowds are marching in protest while the banks are on holiday or have no cash to give out, you can't even withdraw your own savings. The news disturbs us and it distresses me that all the big names in ministry are nowhere to be found. We can't see any shelters open, no soup kitchens, the old are left with no help and no food, what has happened to the offerings ? It hurts to see luxury in church while outside . . . Anyway, if people will pray with us we will see the hand of God working in this sad time for my country.
One typical e-mail, author well known to us, Argentina

I know I am called to missions . .
I am actively seeking direction, training and provision to carry out God's plan for my life. Please pray for me.
Darryl Sit, Ontario, Canada.

Thank you all for your prayers for Maria Lino.
Today Sunday at 1am Maria went into the arms of our heavenly Father. I wanted to report her exact words after she came round at the hospital. She said, "When the lightning hit our home, I had an excruciating pain in my chest and legs. My husband just turned to ashes and my little daughter was in flames and screaming, "Help me mum." Immediately after this, our hut crumbled and collapsed on me.  At that very moment I saw the Lord in great splendor. I was happy to see Him. It was then when He told me that it was not my time yet, that I needed to come back because there was still work for me to do." From the short while that Maria was  conscious, she only shared the love of Jesus with all her relatives that came. As result, many of them accepted Jesus as their Saviour and Lord. Today we received a request from her family and neighbours to organize a Bible Study group in their homes.
Pastor Patricio Bustamante, Tacna-Perú

We have won a great victory in Jesus.
After endless hours of prayer and fasting, three young Nepalese men (followers of Sai Baba) were granted student visas allowing them to attend a Christian educational institution in the USA. It will take lots of time to describe what they had to go through for this miracle to happen, I would like just to mention that the visa arrived three hour before the departure time of their plane to come to work in Cyprus. Now they know that Jesus is real.
Gaby Phillips, with the DCI Community, Cyprus

I am the treasurer at Uganda Bank for the Poor
With all my heart I do recommend the vision God gave to support the poor Christians with a little capital to up lift them. I am monitoring 5 members and I have seen a great benefit and a big change. One member who was given 20.000 shillings for 2 months has now paid back the original 20.000 shillings and is left with 25.000 shillings for his business. He can now afford to earn a living as a Christian. A small scheme like this brings such big change in the lives of people who have no hope.
Okwir Richard, Bar Ogole Church, Lira, Uganda.

Turmoil in Venezuela.
There has been an increase of violence and anxiety due to the uncertainty of the future. In spite of this, the work has not been stopped, here in Margarita we still work. The Lord is touching the lives of people with countless problems by giving them His peace which cannot be explained.
Hamilton Tovar Porlamar- Venezuela

Help us to protect the less fortunate ones.
We are part of a Catholic ministry which supports young people in prison or drug addicted.  We are also a pro-life ministry. Since 1973 when abortion became legal in the USA, 38 million innocent and unprotected children have been killed.
Jose L. Lopez, Boston-USA
