Slavery must no longer be ignored!

Isn’t it about time that we started to pay more attention to where our clothing is made, who produces our food, why there is a glut of sex slaves and why they are getting younger? Who is profiting from the estimated $US32 billion annually, that an estimated 27 million actual slaves generate; and who…

Tibet’s well-sold lie

The sky burial site was a disturbing scene. The sweet smell of rotting flesh filled the man’s nostrils, stimulating his salivary glands so that he felt sick yet hungry at the same time. Around a group of flat stones, he could see bloodied hatchets lying on the ground amidst torn clothes and human bones…

Stretched to the limit, but giving God all the glory!

I have to admit that when I first signed up to do Weymouth beach mission, it wasn’t all about serving God and sharing the gospel. I did want to do those things but there were other reasons too! My brother-in-law and sister had been encouraging me to come for some time and I was…

Being a missionary mum

Three years ago my husband and I moved abroad. He had been called to serve as a missionary and pastor a small European church. The day before our boxes were sent off I was surprised to learn that our third child was on the way. Our daughters were just 2 1/2 and 8 months…

Romania – an unfinished mission

Romania? In Eastern Europe somewhere: Ceausescu and Communism; Securitate and informers; poverty, notably orphanages with tormented, sometimes deranged, children that the Romanian state wished to hide; and lorry-loads of aid, old clothes and used equipment, from good Christian people.
