No hope of living after
crash until we prayed . . .
One young man here had been coma for
10 days after a traffic accident. His doctors opened his upper skull
and then gave him little chance to live but after we prayed specially
for him, God healed him and he can go on with his plans for marriage.
Our people in Papua New Guinea are very busy running tent services to
attend to hundreds of people. A Buddhist woman came to one of our
students after a bad dream but that dream led her to Christ and brought
tears to her face as she felt God becoming so real and near. Ever since
we asked God to make this year as the year of revival He never left us
jobless. Every week we go preaching and teaching in different churches
and places, and it’s wonderful to see every hearts turn to
God and be renewed.

and whole right before your eyes.

School gives 250 more students, says preach freely.
The total of students that are
listening to the good news weekly is now almost 700. I never thought
that it would happen in my life. Can you imagine these boys coming from
the streets and crime to Jesus and discipleship and them back to the
streets as evangelists?

Good morning, I am God . . .
Today I will be handling all your
problems. Please remember that I do not need your help. If life happens
to deliver a situation that you cannot handle do not attempt to resolve
it. Kindly place it in the 'Something for God to do' box. All
situations will be handled in my time, not yours. Once the matter is
placed into my box do not hold on to it worrying about it. Instead
focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now. If
it is a situation you think you are capable of handling please consult
me first to make sure it is a proper solution. Remember I neither
slumber nor sleep, so there is no need for you to lose any. Rest in
peace and remember I am only a prayer away.
Four new Schools of Mission launch in Monrovia.
Two new churches started from the last DCI School, 9 women are also in
business. It is very much encouraging seeing how serious most of our
new students are. The Lord is working. Thanks a million for your great
efforts and tireless prayer support.
Taliban say close churches, convert back or be bomb targets
Several believers from Charsadda,
near Afghanistan have fled and others are living in fear. The police
have deployed only two men at the churches as the provincial government
is controlled by pro-Taliban parties. Christians, Hindus, Sikhs and
other minorities make up about 3% of Pakistan's 170 million peoples and
most live peacefully alongside the Muslim majority, although the
minority groups are targeted repeatedly in attacks blamed on extremists.

Celebration for the Nations
Wales, UK 28th July to 4th August 2007
A unique and remarkable gathering of
worshippers in Wales from the nations touched by the 1904 Welsh
Revival, to reopen the wells dug by our forefathers, and find new ones
for our time. Author J. Edwin Orr said in 1975, "The 1904 Welsh Revival
affected the whole Evangelical cause in India, Korea and China, renewed
revival in Japan and South Africa, and sent waves of awakening over
Africa, Latin America and the South Seas." Let's unblock the wells our
fathers have dug! Let's sing to the new wells of divine intention for
our generation. If you are carrying revival in your heart, and long for
that overflow to the nations, come and join us.

Do you have many homeless people in England?
Where do they stay? How old are
they? We have a lot here in Russia, most of them are alcoholics but I
know Jesus loves them also.
§ Hi Nadja, I am sorry to say that we do have a lot of
homeless people in England. Lots of them are alcoholics or drug
addicts, others have mental health problems and some have just come out
of prison and with nowhere to go so they end up back in bad company.
The church we belong to goes out every week to spend a while with them
on the streets trying to make them feel like valuable human beings
again. We take food and hot drinks as well as leaflets, health or
housing advice, New Testaments and an invitation to church if they
would like it. Some come and find faith in Christ and a new family.
From my experience if any of these men and women will set their heart
to follow the Lord and his ways, and set their minds to find a new
life, then by the help of God they will make a new start because the
gospel is sufficient to make even the most fallen man into a new
creation. I was in a very bad way myself some 30 years ago but since I
decided to follow Jesus I have never looked back or fallen away.
Free School of Mission succeeds in Sudan
My wife and I are located in Juba, Southern Sudan where we are
establishing the ministry. In Nimule, Sudan I trained 21 Sudanese by
the grace of God through the School of Mission some of whom are now
ordained pastors and others have opened churches. Amazing results.

Opportunities to bless India's people
Our partner in India, Pastor Daniel in Kerala has asked me about a
couple of projects. We have worked together for years and he is good
man of integrity and genuine faith, with missions, churches, dozens of
orphanages, Banking for the Poor, training schools, leper ministry and
so on spreading all over India at some personal cost to many of his
Daniel's website here Daniel has just asked me if we would
sponsor 25 bicycles at £40/$75 each for 25 rural missionaries
who have aleady proven themselves by planting new churches, walking
everywhere. He also needs 25 sewing machines for poor ladies he has
trained in tailoring. One sewing machine costs £40 or $75 and
in the right hands will drive poverty from the family from the first
day. Daniel also needs a extra children's sponsors at £15/$20
a month because he never stops taking in children who are abandoned by
their poor parents, often just left outside the door. He says that
people can commit themselves to help the children for one year, two
years or five years at a time, or more but each sponsor is free to move
away at any time. £15 per month covers all food, education,
medical checks and housing. Daniel and his staff are English-speaking
and good communicators.

professionals return to Burkina Faso
We have already done two medical-surgical campaigns there which solved
numerous serious health problems and improved the lives of hundreds of
people. On the last visit we were also able to dig a deep well and work
on purification and distribution of this essential means of life. In
July for about team will return to start negotiations for a second well
which will link to a fish farm project which we will be studying. We
will also start the construction of a new dispensary for health care
and be looking at sorting out some financial support for a local
Christian doctorwho will continue to attend for children without charge. In
December we are going to give me to make preparations for a medical
mission there in July 2008 including surgery and the development of
treatment for local sicknesses which produce blindness and infections.

50, Vigo, Galicia-España
§ Thanks for the question, I have no doubt that the
micro-enterprise concept will work in Vigo which is a lovely city I
know well, but a fairly substantial start-up capital would be needed
because here in Europe it would be impossible to launch a Bank for the
Poor with the $1000 or €750 that we invest in
developing world nations to get an initial 10 poor people started.
Hunger, misery and demons in the jungle
There is a place called El Mastil
where the people live on manioc and nothing else. There is misery,
poverty and even worse they have idols everywhere. We have been to
houses with gaping holes in their roofs caused by stones dropped by
invisible hands. We take the word of God to the people along with
material help. We want to teach them how to cultivate their land to
grow some proper food. Please pray for us to have the means and the
strength to continue.

Pastor fined 20 months wages in Belarus
Ten state officials raided the
Pentecost service of John the Baptist Pentecostal Church in Minsk on 27
May. Pastor Antoni Bokun was arrested and fined 20 times the minimum
monthly wage today for holding an unsanctioned mass meeting. has
learnt. The church has state registration but has been refused
permission to rent premises for public worship, so has to meet in a
private home. Pastor Bokun told the court he had broken the law only
because it went against the law of God. Fellow church member Jaroslaw
Lukasik, a Polish citizen married to a Belarusian faces deportation.
Athough he did not preach at the service, he faces accusations of
conducting unauthorised religious activity as a foreign citizen.

And unexpected smile in Picapiedras, Peru
A couple of months ago we told you about a Mrs Dina, . the lady who
lives in a wooden and cardboard shack and who has a daughter with a bad
mouth and lip birth defect. We prayed and you prayed, the Lord moved
and this week a little girl has had an operation. We have just seen and
she met us with an enormous smile. Her mother is a very poor lady who
nevertheless never asked the anything. She cannot read or write and the
only way she ever hears the word of God is when someone reads the Bible
to her. Me, there is still something to be done here. Her house. The
shack that she has is just one tiny room with her bed in it and a large
cardboard box which serves as a table. The walls are made from bits of
old wooden boxes and the wind blows through. The roof is made from bits
of plastic and when it rains you get wet but this is where I have
shared the gospel for almost a year now. My dream is that the words of
faith that she has received will become a solid reality for her and her
daughter, and that somehow we will be able to build a better house for
her. That isn't too much to ask is it?
Our taxi-driver friend in Lima, Peru
§ We have just said to Juan that if he wants to work on plans
to improve this house then we will do something to work with him in the
project. So here we are then, one more opportunity for all friends in
DCI to join with us and together we can make a difference for one poor
family in Peru.
Turn to face God so he can wipe away your sins,
pour out showers of blessing to
and send you the Messiah he prepared for you, namely, Jesus.

The Last Word for Today . .
Go away for yourself, for your own reasons,
from your country and from your kinfolk . . . .
Make up your mind separately from your clan. They are going to stay -
you go! They are going to settle down, their religious drive has
evaporated. Not so with you Abram. You emigrate. Keep travelling.
Go away to establish your own lifestyle in dependence upon Almighty
God. And I will make you into a great nation, I will bless you. I will
make your name great, You will be a blessing and I will bless those who
bless you and I will curse those who curse you. And all peoples on
earth will be blessed through you.
12.1, as translated by scholar David Newington
§ I just found a paper with this verse written on it from way
back in the 70's and 80's when David Newingtom would pass by the church
we went to in those days. I remember how these words gripped my soul
and would not let me go till I said Yes. I have no regrets, and I am
still travelling. Why not come with me in the same call . .
