Pressure Mounts On
Charismatic Minsk Congregation

The authorities are close to obtaining sufficient grounds under Belarusian law, but against international law, to close down the charismatic New Life Church in Minsk. An official warning against using a cowshed the 600-strong church owns for services was given to the church two days after the authorities fined the church administrator, Vasily Yurevich, 150 times the monthly minimum wage for organising an "illegal" service at the cowshed. Following a second warning, the authorities could move to close down the church. The church has been refused permission both to rent alternative premises and to convert the cowshed into a church. Two other charismatic Full Gospel congregations have also been refused the re-registration the 2002 Belarusian religion law required religious organisations to apply for.

Fruit from a lifetime following Jesus
Dear Les, Last week we were busy drilling wells, promoting 37 adult literacy centres and had a meeting with the women in Tangaye on the micro project loans. God has done exciting things in the past year. Our local church is growing numerically and spiritually to became a discipleship and a missionary church having 5 services on Sunday in four locations that gather about 800 people. We now have 6 schools with 650 children, a discipleship school, 40 literacy centres, leaders seminars, children camp, health programme, food production to support families, clean water supply and the proclamation of the good news of Jesus Christ through radio and television. Exciting testimonies come from the leadership development, discipleship and literacy centres that empower people with skills to get out of poverty and draw them near to God. We are also a training ground for exchange visits by western Christians who gain unique privileges if they accept the challenge.
Pastor Philippe Ouedraogo, AEAD, Ouagadougou.
§ We first met Philippe in 1984 and if we have helped him and his vision the truth is that we have received 100 times more in return from the example his faith, vision and dedication in one of the world's poorest countries. In 1984 a letter took 6 weeks to get to Burkina and it was another six weeks to get the reply. Today, our daughter chats to Philippe's daughter by instant e-mail.  Maybe they will take over from us one of these days ?

Dominican Republic
Can I tell you about my faith journey?

I lived 20 years in Venezuela, 2 of which as a pastor in rural communities. Then, I stayed over 15 years with 2 tribes in the border with Colombia. I was sent to prison, deported and accused of being a spy. Later, I went back to the Warao people, in the Deltana rainforest where a young girl who had died 5 hours earlier came back to life after we prayed for her, and thousands of natives have come to the feet of Jesus. Nowadays, native pastors pray for the dead and the sick, and God delivers. I am currently in the Dominican Republic, where the Lord has sent me to train local and Haitian pastors so that they can reach out the window 10/40 and beyond. We need your prayers, visits, and help.

Four web sites for Arab peoples

Radio Altareeq is Internet Christian Radio; God is Love tries to show God's love to all people, especially to Muslims; Arabic Family help immigrant Muslims and Arabs by teaching them English, and Arabs For Christ has Christian versus Islam debates. We are working with Arab peoples and encourage Western Christians to become involved with us. We give our supporters a free ListServe mailing list hosting system or a 50 mb website with domain, emails, and Christian design.

Dear Les and the DCI family, thank you so much for the money you sent to buy bedspreads for the Lepers. Last Saturday we did the first worship and Bible services for them and 35 women attended the service but it became too dark to do the service for the men. Next Saturday we will have a service for the men, Pastor Johnson and one of his associates will go. Please uphold them in your prayers. We also had a wonderful convention with an overflowing crowd every day, 200 people committed their lives to the Lord  and 25 people obeyed the Lord in water baptism. In India baptism is very important. It is at this time they declare their faith in Jesus to their community and family and cut off themselves from all other religious practice.  We had a 21 days fasting and prayer service for the city in the Bus Station which resulted in the conversion of hundreds drug addicts and prostitutes. We had 12 baptisms at Trivandrum where our missionary had planted a church 6 months ago. Today we have 58 members and hundreds of seekers. We were also blessed to minister in one of the holy pilgrim centres of Hindus  and 175 people came for prayer, committing their lives to the Lord.  We were able to send 50 native missionaries for church planting to Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra and Telungana. Thank you so much for being with us and helping us to reach India for Jesus.
Pastor Daniel, Kerala.
§  Pastor Daniel is a man of high integrity who has served the Lord for over 25 years.  His vision and the energy he puts into it never ceases to amaze us. If you want to invest safely in India, here is a good man that we know personally. Psalm 139, 8 says, "If I make my bed in the depths, you are there." and that is our confidence every time we find people living in new depths of human misery, knowing that Jesus the Son of God is there and waiing for someone to work through.

Gospel for Asia Tsunami Video Update
It has been one month since the tsunami, and for many in the West, it is now a distant memory.  The news media has moved on to other topics.  But I have just returned from Sri Lanka and India, and for the children there who lost their parents to the killer waves, this event will haunt them for the rest of their lives. Click here for a short video We are committed to be there for these children as long as God gives us this privilege.  Already, we are responsible for some 10,000 boys and girls who have no one else to turn to.  And we are taking this privilege seriously, providing water, food, clothing, shelter, medical care, and the nurturing and counselling these traumatized children require.  But even more important, we are letting them know that their heavenly Father will never abandon them, and that through His people, His love will surround them all the days of their lives. Thank you for remembering these children in your prayers. They need your support now as never before.
K.P. Yohannan, President, Gospel for Asia
Put me in touch please . .
Thanks very much for the good work you are doing. I am sister Rebecca, saved and filled with the Holy Spirit, reaching the unreached in Kenya. So I kindly request you to put me in touch with Christians.

Please help us with anything you have
We are dealing with orphans, widows, the aged lame and the like.  We want to ask people to help us with anything they have like second hand clothes, medicine, money for us to buy food for the needy and the like.  We are meeting and reaching people who are hopeless and we give them hope.  We also teach people about this killer disease HIV/AIDS.  We want to build simple houses for those who have no shelter.  Some of them are not in schools, they are street kids. So we want to keep them.
Mrs N. Katumbi, Good Samaritan Ministries.

§ You know I get the feeling that everybody wants GOD to do SOMETHING but the truth is that it is God who wants EVERYBODY to do something. The result is this terrible impasse which abandons the lost, the last and least of the world to their misery and hopelessness.  But if you are willing to let God do something for someone through you, I promise you that heaven will come down and both you and the man, woman, boy or girl that you touch will go on your way filled with a happiness who will not find anywhere else in the world.

Malawi School of Mission
Dear Les, We just closed the first term of the School of Mission in December and 24 students successfully participated to the end. We shall be opening for the second term in March. We are meeting so many challenges that we need your prayers. Most of the students are coming from far, and have to stay in a rented house which is expensive but what impresses me is their zeal to learn the word of God. I am being helped by a missionary who has been sent by EAPTC Nairobi
Pastor Steven Chisale

§ Dear Steven, we feel so privileged to be able to help Malawi, God bless you and all the students, let me know if we can do anything else to help.


Who has a TV they don't want ?
Brother Les, you know that we are full-time workers currently working with the ethnic group of Chinantecos, in Palantla, Oaxaca. We want to set up a Christian family support centre for them as alcoholism and drug additions are rife. Do you know of any organisation which could help us by donating a TV set and a video recorder so that we can show Christian films dealing with these problems?
Miguel Angel Lopez Guillen and Carmen Santiago de Lopez

§ Hello Miguel: Unfortunately I do not know any organisations that might help you but if I were you, I wish I did. If I were you I would go and see some local businessmen and tell them about your project and would invite them to invest some of their profits in this vision which will bring a lot of benefits for their customers. I would not buy a brand new TV, because someone you try to help would likely go and steal it in the first week - this has happened to us more than once. I would ask those same businessmen or the general public to give you their old TV's and VHR's. There is always someone who has just bought the latest model and has got last year's model in the garage. In my experience if we will pray, God opens the way to get many things and not by going to the shops. That is how we here get most of our clothes and furniture. See how you get on, let me know.
Les Norman.

Paying a price for the call of God
I am working with many churches, helping them prepare their leaders through your On-line Bible School, which pastors in Sierra Sur, Oaxaca, consider to be excellent as it is free of charge. Mostly they are working men with no Bible training. I am teaching them free and I am trying to bear all the costs by working as a waiter.
Ramon Esteban Contreraz Pacheco, San Jose del Pacífico

§ Ramón, it is a privilege for us to serve you with our resources. We encourage you to keep on pressing on with the vision, and the passion and the commitment that the Lord has given you. What you do is very important. We admire you and understand the financial sacrifice you are making for these men. God bless you. We did the same back in the 80's when we started, and it hurt and some days it still does.

Please set up a Bank for the Poor in Mozambique

I have learnt about the Bank for the Poor on the Internet and want to say that Mozambique needs a great deal of help in order to reduce the absolute poverty.  Will you set up a Bank for the Poor here ?

2005 and still they never heard the name of Christ

Let me please tell you something about the field I am committed to. I am committed to peoples who had no habit of shaking hands at meeting each other, who thought that no-one else exists in the world except themselves, who dare not taking a photo with a camera, who live a simple life in bamboo houses, who never heard about computer or any technology that is common all over the world. These people have no idea of God or how to pray, who had no plans for human development and who are so spiritually blind that they never heard of the name of Christ and never have seen any Christian missionary. They are badly forgotten by some of the Christians of their nation.They are perishing and crying out to us that we by God's grace would try and send believers who would lead them to the eternal life which is in Christ Jesus. I speak about this to our shame because God has irrevocably commanded us to go preach the Gospel of Christ and we have got no choice. Moreover, their blood will be required at our hands when Christ returns. May you please be in hurry to come see me or find me someone who would help us send a native missionary. I have been asked by four committed believers if I could help them to go reach the forgotten animists in the villages as requested by the animists.

Micro-loans for the poor

Hello Les, you are doing most important yet neglected part of Christian services in the world, that is with micro-loans for the poor. Our nation is the second poorest in the world and is in need of a micro-loan service for believers who are extremely poor so they can feed their family. They desperately needs this program and we need information and assistance in this regard.

§ Pastor Reuben please take a good and careful look at this page and then write to me again.  We will see what we can do.

Choose your life's priorities

Even now you can restructure your life's priorities by choosing a life of intentional simplicity and investing your time and resources in the kingdom of heaven. We can choose to invest in eternity. Or we can spend nearly everything, 97% of our time and resources, on the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of wealth, and the lust for more things. American Christians only give 3% to the Lord, the other 97% they spend on themselves. Then when it's all spent and this life is over, they can't take a penny with them. But you can choose "intentional simplicity" and direct your time and resources into caring for "the poor, the maimed, the lame and the blind" as Jesus did, and as He taught His disciples to do. Will you consider the discipline of discipleship? Will you invest for eternity? The choice is yours!

Tsunami theology - What's yours ?

Due to world events, some mission organisations have been at full stretch since the beginning of the year while others have suffered from the redirection of funds away from their very needy causes. I also wonder if they'll be a further backlash to the huge financial response that the tsunami sparked - what is often called `donor fatigue'. The tsunami disaster have had unprecedented media coverage and the world made a response of the heart to support fellow human beings in need across the globe. But what about our response of the mind? How has seeing and experiencing this disaster affected our view of God and how He works in our world? Few people seem to have tackled this hot potato, so we're encouraging people to think about these implications by joining in a debate that is being hosted by Redcliffe College. There are several papers written by prominent theologians and mission leaders and there is the chance for you to participate and add your comments.

Keep Your Eyes on the Road

Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23. Think back to your childhood to a time when you were lost. There was nothing like that feeling of panic. But who had the worst pain? You or your parent ? A four year old has no concept of all that can happen. Multiply that by a trillion and that's how God feels. If you were to look deep inside the heart of God, you would see that He longs for nothing more than to see His children come to know Him. The heartbeat of God is souls. The underlying motive behind everything He does is to find His lost children and bring them back home to Him. When you look at the people you encounter on a regular basis, really look at them next time through the eyes of God, and feel the pain that He feels because they are lost. If you don't, they will slip right past you. Catch the vision of seeing people the way Jesus sees them.

Planting our first church in Peru

Throwing down the
gauntlet to middle-class Christianity

Pastor and author Erwin McManus is the 'cultural architect' of Mosaic, one of the USA's most innovative and creative churches. People from over 60 nations, many of them artists, attend the church in Los Angeles. In February McManus will publish his most controversial book to date, titled "The Barbarian Way" (Thomas Nelson Publishers). His aim is to present the Gospel in a completely new and brutally honest manner, contradicting social trends and throwing down the gauntlet against middle-class Christianity. "I want to destroy this terrible cliché which says that the safest place in the world is the centre of God's will. We Americans have created an egocentric culture, making God our servant. Everything we want to read is how we can become even more blessed! That has got to change," he says.

Numbers greatly increased beyond measure
We are praising the Lord for his faithfulness. It has been 3 years since we started School for AIDS orphaned children and this year the numbers greatly increased beyond measure.We are looking for Christian teachers, financial and material partners to help us educate these children who are orphans. The school is called Tasha Academy, Tasha means Give Thanks.
Pastor Claud Zimba, Lusaka
§ You can't think about Africa any more without meeting the devastation, fear, suffering and abandonment caused by AIDS and the denial of cheap treatment. What can we do ? We here, you there, or together ? Hundreds of Bible pages reveal God's heart for the poor and Jesus invites us follow Him to where they are. Anyone of us could easily lift the misery from one or two African widows and orphans and give them a hope and future. See what you can do.

The last word for today . . .
"When a poor person dies of hunger, it has not happened because God did not take care of him or her.  It has happened because neither you nor I wanted to give that person what he or she needed.  We have refused to be instruments of love in the hands of God to give the poor a piece of bread, to offer them a dress with which to ward off the cold.  It has happened because we did not recognise Christ when, once more, he appeared under the guise of pain, or identified with a man numb from the cold, or dying of hunger, or when he came in a lonely human being, or as a lost child in search of a home."
Mother Teresa of Calcutta, quoting Matthew 25.
