Moldova (2)

Donald J. Morrison continues his report on gospel ministry to Romanians and Russians in Moldova’s rural countryside.. As we went around the village of Baurci Moldoveni with gospel materials, it was evident that the folk there had their own problems. Some of these, sadly, they have brought upon themselves. I found that alcohol addiction is as much widespread among the poor in rural Moldova, as it is among the affluent in urban Scotland. Broken cisterns Many of them find out, to their cost, the truth of the Scripture, ‘Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise’. A...

Moldova (1)

Donald J. Morrison reports on gospel ministry to Romanians and Russians in Moldova’s rural countryside. My recent 10-day missionary visit to Moldova, in Eastern Europe, was, as always, memorable. A craving to share the gospel with as many souls as possible was my primary reason for this trip, besides helping the poor and needy. At Chişinău I was met by my kind Moldovan Christian hosts, who drove me by car on a 3-hour journey to Cahul, a city in the south-west corner of the country, bordering Romania. This was my home for the next 10 days, and from where my kind-hearted hosts provided lavish hospitality....

An evangelical church on the tropical coast of Spain

Almuñecar is a small cosmopolitan town of around 29,000 people. There are a considerable number of foreign residents who have their second home here or come often for holidays. The town is located in the heart of what is called the ‘Costa Tropical’, between Nerja, in Málaga province, and the province of Almería. There are good transport links from Málaga and Granada (45 minutes by car). The climate makes it possible to grow many tropical fruits like mangos, papayas, avocados and bananas. History Almuñecar was named by the Moors Hins-Al-Monacar, which means ‘city surrounded by mountains’. This settlement has an ancient history. It was a...

Proclamation Institute Zambia

I arrived in Ndola, Zambia, in May 2016 to be greeted by Alfred. The weather was warm and the greeting was too. We drove in his car the hour or so northwest to Kitwe, and then another half an hour further north to a remote location, where a new Bible training college had begun its first term in January that year. Alfred Nyirenda is the first principal of the Proclamation Institute Zambia (PIZ), a new college in Zambia training people in expository Bible ministry. It is particularly focused on training men for preaching ministry, but is also accepting others for a variety of ministries, such...

Jewels of the North Atlantic

Great Britain came very near to owning the Faroe Islands. King Henry VIII was twice offered the 18 small, mountainous islands located between Scotland and Iceland, as security for a loan, but both times he turned them down. By default, the Faroes archipelago became part of Denmark’s crown jewels. As far back as the 6th century, Irish monks were drawn to the isolation of the North Sea islands. Vikings were the first to settle permanently, however, and in 1035 the land became part of Norway, which was united with Denmark for almost 500 years. When the two countries separated in 1814, the Faroes became Danish....

The quiet revival in the Faroes

The Faroe Islands lie about 180 nautical miles north west of the Shetlands. Recent archaeological digs suggest long-term settlements were established there in the 4th century AD. These were probably from Celtic people — suggested by today’s place names and hand-sized, stone crosses. Around 860AD the Vikings arrived, which brought the Faroes under Norway. In 999AD the Catholic Church from Norway was introduced, but, around 1536, the Faroes along with other Nordic countries became Lutheran. In 1814 the Treaty of Kiel made the Faroes part of Denmark. Changes During the early- to mid-1800s its 1,400-year-old, agriculturally based society was giving way to a culture based...

Făclia Publishing House publishing good Christian books in Oradea, Romania

Let me tell you my story: I was born into a loving evangelical Christian family in a harshly communist country that suffered for so long under the cruel dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu. But, in our town of Oradea in Romania, we had the privilege of attending a fine gospel preaching church, Emanuel Baptist Church, and I came to know Christ as my personal Saviour when I was 15 years old. After school, I was employed as a technician in a tool factory in Oradea. Our church ran a theological course to train a new generation of preachers. It was called ‘The school of the prophets’...

Pray for Christians in Syria

The Syrian government’s use of sarin gas on civilians has seen US President Trump and Russian President Putin at loggerheads after months of seeming mutual respect between them. After Trump ordered an air strike on Syrian government military bases, seemingly carried out without prior consultation and voting agreement at the United Nations, Putin expressed ‘anger’ at the US air strike. As tension mounts between the two superpowers once again, Christians on the ground in Syria and Iraq are facing intensified attacks on all fronts. According to reports from Barnabas Fund, the fighting has now shifted to the edge of the Syrian capital Damascus, in the...
