World Christmas Parties
This year we are holding three parties.
The first is in India, where our friend and colleague
Pastor Daniel who is holding the Party in a colony of
abandoned lepers, men, women and children. " There will
be 375 people and we taking food and clothes. There
will a worship team coming with us to sing and lead
the worship. I will deliver the message and pray for
the sick. I am taking 10 Bible students with me to taste
it. When we went to see their situation we saw that
most of them had lost their body parts and were too
pathetic to see. The smell of human flesh made us vomit
and we could not stay longer."
The next party is in Chaing Mai, Thailand where our
friend Gareth Lavell will be celebrating the coming
of Jesus with 200 or more people in a Shan slum.
The Shan are a very neglected, unwanted minority tribe.
Gareth is also going in to the local children's cancer
ward where little ones and their parents spend months
hoping for the best. Our friend George Purkweri in the
war zone of north Uganda will be bringing at lest 300
orphans, widows, AIDS and war victims, blind, disabled
and paralysed people together to hear the meaning of
Christmas, to give them hope, a good meal, music and
celebration with the offer of long term care from the
As a family we choose to celebrate with the poor instead
of spending our money on parties and presents at home,
especially at this time of year when people in the West
spend millions of pounds on unwanted gifts and fill
their diaries with every kind of party. Let Jesus be
the reason for the season and Christmas be an opportunity
to put Isaiah 58,5-9 into action. Why not do the same
for the poor people where you live or Sponsor A Party with us in the developing world ?

Testing times for the Pygmy work
Certain jealous villagers have been persecuting
the Pygmy brothers, ill-treating and beating them viciously.
Benjamin, who leads the work, reported this to the police
who imprisoned those involved. This, however, caused
an uproar in the village. We lost a Pygmy brother to
a serious form of leprosy but we were able to bring
the others suffering from the disease to Bangui, where
they received the treatment. We have begun a work caring
for 15 orphans and are setting up a poultry project
to support it. We have almost completed the foundations
of the Mission Training Polytechnic, and are awaiting
the start of the dry season to start putting up the

Memories that live with us forever
|In my country,
during the Pinochet regime, over 35,000 people were tortured;
the latest government has just received sworn statements
from survivors. As I believe in Jesus I am sure He could
never approve such practices, so I wanted to let you know
about this. No one should suffer such atrocities and many
of those who did now believe in the Lord.

In massacres God saved and called
I am now studying at Nairobi Evangelical
Graduate School of Theology and my goal is to reach
14 ethnic groups in the north-east of my country who
do not have the Gospel. I am greatly challenged to be
involved in the Great Commission. My country, the DRC
is in serious economical, political, social crisis after
the terrible ethnic conflict. I was a victim but God
protected me although many of my brothers and sisters
were savagely slaughtered. But in the midst of such
crisis, God wants me to serve him. Please pray for me.
I am married and have three children.

Church and homes burned down
"I may face some troubles on the coming
days, and may be arrested as the police are not satisfied
about the escape of a girl from a forced conversion
to Islam 3 years ago back to Christianity and our church.
I expect a visit from the police and they may search
my office and computer. The police eyes are focused
upon me, my friends and our activities and they may
arrest us at any time. There was another clash between
Muslims and Christians in Beni-Suif and 11 Christians
"Last night, the Muslims in Mankateen,
our village in El Minia south of Cairo, attacked the
new church in a movement called "El Gehad" (Jihad).
After the 7pm "El Esha Prayer" they came to our new
church building carrying gasoline and succeeded in burning
the church down and then they burned a pharmacy of a
Christian doctor and burned another believer's car.
Then they turned to Christians' houses near the church
to destroy and burn everything. We are not sure at the
moment of how many victims there are." Name withdrawn

§ The writer of these two e-mails
is a young Christian leader who is our close colleague
in the Arabic speaking world. We have not heard from
him since last week. You may wish to politely write
to the Egyptian Embassy
in your country to protest
this violence which goes unattended by the police.

Unreached peoples in Rome
I distribute evangelistic literature and
small croissants to Bangladeshis and other foreigners
who eke out a living selling merchandise in the metro
station. There are quite a few Wolof speakers from Senegal
and Arabic speakers from North Africa. I have booklets
in Arabic and a few tapes in Wolof.

Miracles bring many to faith
|Despite the Communist
authorities' best efforts, hundreds of people in Laos
are turning to Jesus, many of them after they have witnessed
a healing in Jesus' name. The Government is doing its
best to intimidate Christians with jail and severe punishment
to prevent the Gospel spreading further. Church buildings
were closed, but many brave Christians continue to meet
in them. The indigenous missionaries have authority over
demons and many miracles open the people's hearts for
God. The churches in Laos are growing faster than they
have done for many years, and even the most determined
government cannot stop that.

Bob & Cheryl Hosken,
A village called “There is no god”
missionaries in Sierra Leone looking for places unreached
by the Gospel discovered a village called “There is no
god.” The name spoke of such hopelessness that they immediately
made plans to take the Gospel to this Islamic, occult
and juju stronghold. The village chiefs and elders have
given the missionaries permission and they started off
by taking care of physical needs. The missionaries are
determined to see the village change its name.

Money for Nothing ?
to ever reply to unsolicited e-mails particularly from West
Africa and the Middle East, although they could be from anywhere
these days, that offer you large amounts of money for you
or your church or mission. They are all well known frauds.
respond to official looking e-mails from your bank, credit
card or any bank asking you to confirm account details - it
is 'phishing' - the e-mail is not from your bank, it is a
clever hi-tech scam.
reply to unsolicited e-mails that tell you have won a European
Lottery - you have not.
ever reply to unsolicited e-mails asking for your help, your
address or your name and bank account to help people from
overseas to obtain visas to your country. Many
Christians and Pastors have lost significant amounts of money
already, please be wise and do not allow yourself to fall
into the hands of international gangs of criminals.
"I have been receiving this type of e-mails offering millions
of dollars but I could understand by the Holy Spirit that
those letters are false. My friend sent $3000 four months
back and still he did not receive any information from them.
His total family is suffering now."
"I have been conned out of US $3700. I wanted to minister
in the US. It was a con. I organized to raise the money they
asked for, sacrificed for it, fasted for it, borrowed from
friends but now I am lamenting, crying, frustrated and confused.
Help me in prayer, I have no reward."
"I had an e-mail from Nigeria telling me
they will send $50,000,000 to help poor people. I replied
and I got a phone call to come to Amsterdam Airport to clear
the sending and to pay the administration fees. I told them
that I don't have the money so without one further word they
put the phone down."
"We have lost $300 which was for a person to attend a Pastors
Conference in USA. We are not able to afford but we did this
to introduce our ministry. But they deceived us. We have learnt
a great lesson."
"These criminals are devils in human clothing. I have been
cheated, robbed of $26,000 and placed into a financial pit because
of these frauds and spam criminals from Africa, offering great
donations to my work here in our country. They use theological
terms and Christian phases in order to capture their prey,
mostly innocent Christians. They mask themselves as Christians
and offers large sum of money but are really emptying and
drying your pocket and bank account."
