George Purkweri in Uganda says I am now training 66 young girls rescued from the streets in a big sewing and knitting project to empower the poor and change their behaviour before they catch AIDS. Six girls decided to follow Christ on the second day and the town leaders said this is real church. Thanks to Lizzie Norman at the DCI Fund for seeing this vision very fast when I told her the story. See the photos.

Lizzie Norman
says walking through strong winds at minus 19 degrees makes you very nauseous, weak, light headed, aching and it is hard to breathe, something like the worst flu you've ever had only 150 times worse. There is no possibility of stopping to rest because you freeze, your water is solid, if you eat anything you vomit, and if you blow your nose you nose bleeds. Reaching the top of Mount Kilimanjaro after days of climbing is an amazing feeling, and knowing that you have made a difference to Tanzanian children's lives by raising £2,200 makes it even better. Read the full report and see the first photos.

John Clements of Eternal Purpose Institute in Wales passed on this very lovely blessing from Jerusalem to celebrate the Jewish New Year: "May the coming year bring good resolution to all your difficulties, conflicts and pain. May all those whom you love return your love in beautiful ways. May your parents, children, grandchildren, and friends be blessed with health, happiness, and good fortune. May your dreams for yourself come to fruition in good ways. May your fears be unfounded, may every plague, every unkindness, every crime, every act of selfishness or cruelty fly over your door posts. May you give love, and receive love, may God look upon your deeds as good deeds. May you decide not to act upon any endeavour that arises from jealousy, fear, prejudice, or low self esteem. May this year be the beginning of your best years, and the best years for the land and people of Israel, our beloved."  Why not pray this over someone and pass it on to them.

This is probably what John Wesley meant when he said, "Do all the good you can by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”

Can we ask you to pray for us for just one minute before you leave this page. Because we are spread all over the world we can't have a prayer meeting but if thousands of readers would stop for a moment to pray for these people and their projects for the lost, the last and the least, we think that the mountains that get in the way can be moved.

Henri Nouwen says that when we enter into solitude to be alone with God, we quickly discover that without the many distractions of our daily lives that fill our silence, we feel anxious and tense. When nobody speaks to us, calls on us, or needs our help, we start feeling like nobodies. Then we begin wondering whether we are useful, valuable, or significant at all. Our tendency is to leave this fearful solitude quickly and get busy again. Click for some answers

Thanks for reminding me of the words of John the Baptist who said, "He must increase, but I must decrease." Who among us can compare with John's hidden life in the wilderness, but in fact, God used this "nobody" to prepare the way for Jesus and his salvation and glory.

Mah Malachie from Ivory Coast says my School of Mission students come very far and now cannot even find pennies to copy the lessons so I have stopped to look for a little money. After the war everything is so expensive, rents, water and electricity. We will start again soon.

Comment: Les Norman, DCI England

Mah, poverty is deepening all over the developing world but keep your eyes on Jesus, ask Him for wisdom and for creative, new, different ways of keeping going with or without money and He will show you a way such as creating jobs. People can make notes by hand instead of buying copies for example. It is possible to run a free School of Mission in the open air at no cost if necessary but I understand about transport and food. The life of faith through prayer is one lesson that all of us, students and leaders alike have to learn. Stay in touch, we will not leave you alone.

Ranledis Perez en Camaguey, Cuba says that the behaviour of the 60 to 100 young baseball players who have decided to follow Jesus is not the best.  Some are delinquents, others are alcoholics, robbers and ex-convicts just like Nicky Cruz and the Cross and Switchblade gangs of New York but the respect they give to God, to his word and to me is astonishing. Click to see the DCI sponsored baseball tournament.

Comment: Les Norman, England

I can easily visualize your young people because in the 80's Pilar and I spent years with Remar after Miguel Diez came to faith and began preaching to street people in Spain which had a plague of drugs and crime. Hundreds quickly decided to follow Jesus and we ate, slept and travelled with these wild people who were like lambs and listened to Bible teaching for hours. Some became outstanding leaders but sadly many later died of AIDS. Today Miguel cares for 30,000 poor people in 56 nations.

DCI has never been a fund-raising organisation nor do we make appeals, send out magazines or ask for offerings, rather we are a gathering point for people who feel called to giving for the benefit of the last, the lost and the least of the world. As Pastor Oswald Smith famously said in the 1930's, "If you can't go yourself, then for God's sake, send someone else."


Les Norman is a journalist, writer and a fund manager with the DCI Trust, serving the lost, the last and the least of the world. Since 1977 he has been following the call of Christ. He is married to Pilar and they have three grown up children.
