Pastor killed in
By subversive militants of the
Colombian Guerrilla FARC.
Pastor Abel Ruiz of the United Pentecostal Church died after being shot several
times while performing his duties in the congregation. In the very same place, a couple
of weeks ago, another pastor was also killed by the same group. I hope that this news will bring
the prayers of the believers on behalf of the Colombian pastors. May God bring good out of

And the feast of martyrs to remember how our
fathers paid with their blood and life for their faith. I have started a

youth in my local church. Please pray for this study.

All is functioning very well and the scheme is progressing.
So far we have 50 widows who meet every week and bring 500 shillings which
is accumulating and is lent among us. We want you to come and train other
groups in Aduku. They visited our projects and were so impressed that they
want to open their own Bank for the Poor
scheme. We need much prayers for peace since the rebels are disturbing our
security so much. They are abducting and killing our young children of
5-12 years old. Some of them they take into their army against our
children's will and rights.

I was born in Manchester and traveled the world. I first
noticed sheer poverty while on a trip to India, that trip changed my life.
My cousin and I had wonderful life style and a very profitable bussiness
in UK. We could almost buy anything and travel anywhere. During the 5 week
trip to India the sight of poor children touched our hearts so much and
greatly affected our lives. We went back to the UK and gave our company to
our employees then we sold our homes and decided to do some volunteer
work. We are both trained Nurses. We presently take care of several
hundred HIV/AIDS patients throughout the Chiang Mai province of Thailand
and have a case list of 650 orphans. We help with poor peoples funerals
and have 10 projects in total. When we first came to Chiang Mai in 1992 we
went through poverty like we had never experienced before. The first six
months was sheer hell and many times we did not even have enough money to
buy food. Then Jesus spoke to us . .

Mi name is Sergio, I am five years old…
I was born in Chile with a defective heart missing important
valves. The doctors were
surprised that I was born. I
have had seven operations and the doctors do not think that I will live
much longer, but the prayers and fasting of my church and family members
have reached the throne of grace, and as result of His answer I am still
on my feet. It is my dream to
become a pastor.
