Who is in France and Spain ?

I am an Argentine missionary with a calling for Europe, especially France. I have already been there. I'm writing because I would like to get in touch with churches or organisations working on the France/Spain border.

Prison bars never keep Jesus out

We had a meeting in the women's prison with worship, testimonies and a talk about inner healing. Many inmates gave their lives to the Lord, three girls with babies offered them as well. We prayed for every one of them. It was a wonderful meeting.

Evangelista Jorge Salvarezza, La Plata



Mexican mission in Vienna

We are working amongst Afghan refugees and now have a church of 17 Middle East people who meet in a basement with our team from Mexico, USA, Germany, Austria and Afghanistan.

God's choice stunned us

Our School of Mission has started on Tuesdays with 23 people from all walks of life take part, from buskers to doctors. When the Lord calls people to serve Him, He does not choose as we do, and His choice is stunning. Ours church is 6 months old and we have seen the hand of God as we started off with 27 people on and now we can't accommodate everyone even with 112 seats. 

David Gianella Duran, Santa Cruz


Looking for Friends of Africa

This October I will be going to preach in missionary conferences in Portugal, England, Germany, France and Spain. I would like to get in touch with pastors interested in missions in Africa. I have some free time and could visit other churches while in Europe. We are going to Angola in May 2005 and welcome pastors, missionaries, workers and people who love Africa and missions to come with us.

Pr. Marcelo Satiro, Indaiatuba

2004 monsoon causes vast damage.

Thousands have become homeless and lost their cultivations, many have died. Three of our prayer halls which cost $1500 each were completely destroyed in Kattappana and must be rebuilt within days to continue the services. Please remember these believers who lost everything in this natural calamity that they may be strong in the Lord in the midst of this crisis.

Bomb blasts rock Iraqi churches

Bombs have gone off near four churches in the Iraqi capital and one in Mosul. At least 11 people were killed and dozens injured.  Iraq's Christians used to number 1 million but now are maybe 650,000, about 3% of population. The bombings did more than kill worshipers, they destroyed any hope among  Christians of staying off the hit list. While many Christians hated Saddam Hussein for his oppression, they were free to worship under the ousted dictator, who officially preached religious tolerance and maintained Tariq Aziz, a Christian, in a prominent role as deputy prime minister. Christians are proud their faith came to Iraq in the first century while Islam arrived in the seventh century.

Sudan for real, not on TV
Our friend and colleague George Purkweri from Uganda is going into the Sudan again, on the 28th August for a 2 week mission to Yeei and other 4 different towns where he hopes to plant churches which will become community centres for the rebuilding of lives both spiritually and materially.  He is going equipped by the friends of DCI with 40 goats to loan out, thousands of seeds, hoes, saws, and all the materials and know how to start the free Bible Schools that the beleaguered believers there have been requesting for the last year. The work seems to be great and needs a lot of prayers.  After so many years of sanitised TV images of the world’s pain and disasters the fact is that we these days we view but we don’t see, we hear but we don’t listen. Isn’t it time to ask the Lord to soften our hearts again and make our heart like His.

We are just back . .
From the UK's New Wine Bible Week which for us has been one of the best times before the Lord in living memory. One of the speakers was Michael Cassidy of African Enterprise and the very well known Jackie Pullinger who lives with the poor of Hong Kong was another speaker. In the evenings and in many of the seminars there was a continual move of the Holy Spirit to refresh and bless the 11,000 people there, many of them teens and twenties. Another 11,000 were there the week before and almost as many young people have now arrived for their own Soul Survivor camp. These celebrations - New Wine, Spring Harvest, Grapevine, Keswick and others are the high spots of what the Lord is doing in the deeply secular UK.

Reach out to the remote . .

I am a Malawian living in a remote area and I am looking men of God who will assist me in building a good church.

Faithfulness of God before my eyes

I was jobless for 18 months, having to take care of my wife and four children. No doors opened and I spent most of that time working in my church cleaning, tidying up, repairing this and that. After 18 months, God's answer arrived and I started work at the biggest supermarket chain in my country as a trainee. A year later, after agreeing with God that I would give away, apart from tithes and offerings, every single pay increase, his answer was amazing!  I am now a branch manager with a very good salary. I encourage everyone to give and to do so with happiness. God loves people who give happily, and He prospers us so that we can give to His work.

Pablo Leiva, Asunción

Why wasn't Jesus born rich ?

Why did Jesus choose to be born as a carpenter's son? Why wasn't he born rich or even just middle class?

Anne Grey


§ Dear Ann, Jesus intentionally chose to be born in a stable, homeless, helpless and vulnerable, a citizen of an oppressed nation, racially discriminated against, considered illegitimate, in the condition of the poorest of the poor. Why ? So that the poorest people of the world, who are the majority in every generation would be able to relate to His human experience, and Jesus would also be able to relate to their everyday life, hopes, fears, injustices and prayers.  Hebrews 2:17 in The Message says, " He had to enter into every detail of human life. Then, when he came before God as high priest to get rid of the people's sins, he had already experienced it all himself, all the pain, all the testing and would be able to help where help was needed." It is a beautiful story, and altogether true. There is truly no-one like Jesus.

Les Norman, the editor.

Are you in Zimbabwe ?

My wife and I want to get in contact with missionaries in Zimbabwe, if there are any left.  We would like to establish a friendship and prayer support for them and also be up to date with the latest news.  We both have a strong calling for the people in Zimbabwe and hope to go there ourselves for mission work in about 5 years.

They missed God's best . .

I cannot tell you how many have come to me in middle age, and have said, 'Dr Smith, God called me to be a missionary but I married a man who was not going, and now we have a family. We are now in middle life and it is too late. I have missed God's best and now I must take second best'. And I have had them break down and weep.'
From The Challenge of Missions' by Oswald J Smith.

The things they worship here !

We have 26,000,000 people and 200,000 evangelical churches, with around 80 converts in each. The Government says that we have  3,000 sects of which New Age has the highest growth rate. Venezuelans mostly practice a religious mixture of Roman Catholicism, Asian and African cultures and Hinduism, including witchcraft, rites and worship of precious stones, positive and negative energies, etc. Can we who believe pray and work so that Venezuela receives the true gospel of Jesus Christ.
