Marvellous, excellent and historical . .
So said the chairman of the Disabled
in Lira and " This was the most real Christmas party which I have ever
been to", said a Member of Parliament. We had over 450 men, women and
children who are beggars, blind, lame, paralysed, orphaned, with AIDS, and
we had as guests of honour the blind lepers who brought the presence
of our Lord Jesus who was born for such a people, the hopeless and downcast
people in the community. All the radio stations made us the main news land
the news papers are publishing what happened. The name of the Lord has been
lifted in Lira more than before. It was much more better than holding the
biggest crusade in Lira.

December - 4,650 in 5 villages hear Gospel.
We showed the Jesus Film and 280
accepted Jesus as Lord and Saviour. These are largely Muslim and animist
remote villages where literacy is very low. A church is under
construction in Keleguem and will have adult literacy programs. We hope to
open 21 literacy centres providing education and the Gospel for 30 people
each over 40 days using Biblical teaching material.

A new day for pastors
The presidents of Amic and Unicea

Church stolen at Christmas
On 23 December the new owners of a
Methodist church in Moscow violently and with the use of force evicted
Pastor Kim-Jun-Kyu, his family including two young children, and other
church officials without even giving them time to dress before throwing them
onto the cold street at 7am. Church members contacted the police, who sealed
the building so the church held a Christmas service on the street, and will
be holding another street service this Sunday. The violence was accompanied
by nationalistic expressions and crude insults towards Protestants, and a
leader has called for a special night of prayer.

Total confidence in uncertainty . .
Today, I look at the future with
uncertainty towards the unknown, but with total confidence that God's
presence in my life and ministry is more real than ever. Today, more than
ever, I pray that the Glory of God may fall upon Spain and transform
my people. May they know in a real way the great miracle of a new life in
Christ. I am strengthened by the truth that God is drawing His people to
Christ and that He has a clear purpose and destiny for my life. Today I
commit myself to give even up to my last breath to raise the banner of
Christ in all the nations for there is no more valuable thing than
surrendering our lives for Him who gave His for us.

He is a refugee from Iraq and his
face lit up when he saw the Bible on line. This is a Ukrainian speaking area

Humour forgotten in Christian ministry?
Leslie Flynn's classic book first
published in 1960 shows the therapeutic role of humour in mental and
physical and is highly relevant. Not many understand the biblical
mandate to use humour and fail to see the humour that is embedded into the
vast majority of the books of the Bible. This is tragic, because humour is a
way of smuggling truth past people's defences into their hearts. This book

Jesus in The Passion film . .
Jim Caviezel, a devout Catholic who
plays the role of Jesus in the film, is convinced that it was the Holy
Spirit who led him to play the role. "It is important for me to portray
Jesus' character as God intends," he says. "Mel Gibson shows the
violence of the events so realistically that some will not be able to look,
and will leave, believe me. But many will stay, and will gradually realise
the whole truth." "In a world in which pretty much everyone is at
each others' throats, this film has a good and very up-to-date message, one
of faith, hope, love and forgiveness which will touch people very
profoundly, and change them. "I believe that there is no better message
than the one contained in this film," says Mel Gibson.
