Looking for an architect.
We have a bamboo church and a building project, but we need plans and design. It would be very expensive for us to contract an architect here. Can anyone help help us with its design? We would save a lot of money.
Nixon Torres,Guayaquil, Ecuador.

From a French church in Quebec 
I am looking into the possibility of opening a school of ministry.  Has your material been translated into French and if not would you give us the permission to translate the material? (Yes, the studies in French are on the way, translated in Burkina Faso, among the Pygmies of Central Africa and in England. Editor.)
Dale Peck, St-Romuald, Canada

During the next 60 seconds, stop whatever you are doing . . 
Take this opportunity to bless: You simply say this personalised "The Lords Prayer" for a person who know." Our Father, who are in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name, your Kingdom come, your will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.  Give him this day, his daily bread and forgive him his trespasses and help him to forgive those who trespass against him. Lead him not into temptation but deliver him from evil. For yours is the Kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.  Amen."  Do it right now.
From an idea sent in by Rev. Gareth Lavell, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

Look among the nations – be astonished! 
In Hab 1:5 God instructs us to look among the nations, because amongst them his handiwork is seen. In the nations His purpose may be witnessed and amongst the nations His purpose is being fulfilled. The nations are the tapestry upon which God's story is being woven and written to this day.
John Clements, Nottingham, England.

Looking for information about work and missions in Australia.

Stories from an expedition to China
This is a strong and growing sect in China who believe the Jesus has already come again as a woman called "Lightning".  These people operate in a subtle way, often infiltrating underground groups, posing as born-again believers to invite people to meetings.  Often people are drugged and brainwashing techniques are used.  They especially target leaders. Recently they fooled 30 of the leaders of one large movement to go to their meetings and they were imprisoned and drugged.  Thanks to the Lord's intervention all have now been released but they have suffered a lot and some do not want to continue in ministry.  Another leader went along to a Lightning meeting but felt uncomfortable and left.  She did drink some tea and slept so long that she wonders if that was drugged.

We will be translating everyday during the Barcelona evangelistic campaign of Carlos Anacondia.  If you are near and have a deaf friend please bring him and give the Lord the opportunity to talk to them. We are also translating for the Gospel Choir concert in Madrid, 29-30th. The music and choreography will be vivid and testimonies too.
Dámaris and Pili Gómez Peñuelas, Comunicación 7, Spain

About to start the Course for World Christians in Thailand.
Hopefully very soon our group will be up and running. I have read through courses 1 to 10 and I want you to know that I feel truly blessed and fortunate to have come across your course. I know that Christ directed me to find it.
Rev. Gareth Lavell, Chiang Mai, Thailand.

E-mail me about the world today . . .
Looking at it from a perspective of God eyes.  I am doing a course on World Perspectives, it is just great.  There's a saying with great power comes great responsibility, I believe it's up to us to ensure that the nations be reached.

Bradley Kissen, Cape Town.

Stories from an expedition to China
The sleepless night enabled us to pray.  Lying there I seemed to be "visited" by a procession of animals, not flesh and blood, but to do with whatever spiritual powers had a hold on that place. One animal returned more often than the others, a monkey with an almost human face, dressed in human clothes.  A week later a conversation with a young lady turned to Taoism and she said that the major power was a monkey who wore clothes!

Two Yanomami villages are about to go to war.
Both villages are nearby. The cause is the death of a young man by snakebite.  This is said to be witchcraft by one village against the other, and now they are ready to kill to revenge this death and old wounds as well. Please pray!
Musme Apostol, Missionary with the Yanomami, Venezuela Amazon.

Peace is fundamental to the transformation to our communities.
The peace that my country needs, and indeed many other troubled nations of the world is the God kind of peace. The God kind of peace pursues harmony, complementy activity and relationships at the interpersonal, ethnic, and even global levels. I am involved in initiatives to promote dialogue, peace and reconciliation in my nation. I dream of an institute that will train church leaders in Africa in conflict transformation skills. Please pray that God may bring along people of a similar passion to make the dream a reality.

Five day unprecedented international Greek conference.

We struggle with the caste system  . . .
But the Bible tells us that those who believe on Lord Jesus Christ and are cleansed with His Blood all are one caste, Christians.  Most villages follows castism and in the towns castes only help their caste brethren, and  deceive the Holy Spirit. Please pray for Hindus to hear the Gospel. We are preaching the crucified Christ whenever occasion comes. We need your Prayers. In Andhra Pradesh there are many groups of Christians. We are belong to Christian Brethren.

Cross-denominational service in Belfast widely celebrated
Members of different Protestant churches in Belfast were invited to a Catholic church for a cross-denominational service. The Presbyterian minister gave the sermon and something unusual took place. There was applause from everyone. Under the title of "Keep Hope Alive", he spoke on reconciliation after years of violence and deeply-rooted hatred and about the hope, faith and vision that the Gospel brings. Northern Ireland has heard many people reciting the Gospel for years but sometimes they sounded empty and barren. We need people to live the words like this servant of God!
José Luis Iparraguirre D’Elia, Belfast, Northern Ireland.

In Pakistan every congregation has problems.
Many have received threats against property and people. Recently many died in a storm and many homes collapsed in the storm.

Ask the Lord to give Moroccans dreams and visions.
In many places throughout the centuries, the Lord has acted sovereignly to reveal himself to Muslims.  He often works through dreams and visions that later result in salvation when Christians shed light on unanswered questions.  Ask the Lord to call laborers to bring in a growing harvest of souls in Morocco .
Arise Shine Morocco.

We reached 13 different people groups in Burkina.
The Mossis, Birifores, Lobis, Dioula, Guans, Bissas, Dagaries, Bobos, Bolon, Senoufo, Lèle, Fulanis and Gouroussis. One new believer is Etienne who was a renowned witch doctor, many feared him. He was like a demon and a strong warrior. It was a big surprise when he left his old life and decided for Jesus. When God healed a possessed women 9 of her family accepted the Lord.
Pastor Philippe Ouedraogo, AEAD, Burkina Faso.

Extreme drought in Southern Africa . . .
Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia and Zimbabwe are all suffering. We know that for these poor people, the future is very bleak. The issue is not just drought, but a combination of civil wars, economic mismanagement, the HIV/Aids, self-serving politics  and even pure greed. Yet God is concerned about starving people. They need to be given necessary food and care now and the Water of Life for  their eternal destiny. The issue as always is who will go ? Who will be Jesus to them ? Who will become His hands, feet and heart to them?
Dr. Kevin Dyson, New Covenant University, USA.

Reaching out to destitutes and beggars in Senegal 
We witness to them and pray for them because Jesus died for the destitutes the same way He died on the Cross for the people in the palace. In Senegal the nobles only want to identify with prosperity preachers with big suits. We need supporters to help us reach the less privileged on the streets.
Rasaki Solomon Erhenede, Clap House Int'l, Dakar, Senegal

Jurgen Moltmann writes in, "The Church in the Power of the Spirit"
Reading the Bible with the eyes of the poor and hungry is a different thing from reading it with a full belly. If it is read in the light of the experiences and hopes of the oppressed, then the  Bible's revolutionary themes - of promises being fulfilled, of exodus and liberation, of resurrection and new life, of the abundant life through the Spirit of God coming to all who by faith will believe and receive, then these themes come alive!
Sent in by Dr. Kevin Dyson, New Covenant University, USA.

Scams from Nigeria, be forewarned and forearmed.
These many scams are aimed at Christians with very convincing Christian words to draw in the naive or just-plain-hopeful believer. You may be so 'savvy' that you wouldn't be taken in at all, then again you might. Or a friend might ask your advice. Many have lost thousands of pounds. Take note of this website:
