China’s Revival

In 1949 there had been, at most, one million Protestant believers in China. Fifty years later, in 1999, there were estimated to be around 90 million. This was mainly due to the phenomenal growth of illegal, 'underground' house churches that, by then, numbered 80 million.

Heroic faith

Heroic faith ‘A little thing is a little thing, but faithfulness in little things is a great thing.’‘All God’s giants have been weak men, who did great things for God because theyreckoned on his being with them.’‘China is not to be won for Christ by quiet, ease-loving men and women.’‘God’s work done in God’s way will never lack God’s supplies.’‘I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God: first, it is impossible,then it is difficult, then it is done.’‘I have never passed a more anxious or trying month in my life, but I never felt Godso present with me.’‘It needs...

The heart-rending story of ‘Annie’

The heart-rending story of ‘Annie’ http://www.ccmmanila.org/ Not her real name, but the story is true as told to Virgie Biala, the CCM social worker responsible for following up ‘Annie’s’ case. ‘I do not know anything about my mother. My father told me that she left when I was still a baby. I lived in a small room with my father and brother.     One day, after playing, I went home, but found that my father and brother had left. I asked our neighbours, but they could not tell me where my father and brother went.     ‘I waited and waited for them to come home...

Salt and light

World Mission Salt and light What do you think or feel when you hear the word ‘Muslim’? God has called you and I to be salt and light to them as well (Matthew 5:13-15). I think, if God had told me at first to go to a Muslim country and learn a related language, it would have been a massive struggle and learning the new language would be like facing a mountain that could not be climbed.    At school I struggled and never got the hang of English grammar, and I scored 0 on foreign languages. Even though I heard the gospel when I was...

Gospel work among the Datooga

Gospel work among the Datooga In 1998 a church adopted the Datooga people group in Tanzania and covenanted to pray for them. Today, the Datooga are coming to know who Christ is and how he can change their lives.    ‘It was some experience to sit under the trees with the villagers and hear them talk of their openness to the gospel and to see the changes brought to the village as the result of the gospel coming to them’.    These were the words of a church group after a recent visit to the Datooga in Tanzania. Why did they go? Because in 1998 they had...

An open door in Tanzania

An open door in Tanzania I left for Tanzania on 15 February 2011 and returned to UK on 11 March. It takes three days to travel to and from Mbeya, so that left me 19 full days for ministry. During those days, the Lord opened the door for me to preach eight times on the radio and 25 times in churches, and spend six whole days at Utungule Bible College. There was also opportunity to lead morning devotions at two other Bible colleges.    Another part of my work was distributing books to pastors and Bible college lecturers and students. Banner of Truth, Evangelical Press and...

The serving school

The serving school ‘Haven of Peace Academy —  leadership, stewardship and service’ reads the logo of this international school in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania, which educates 350 students from over 30 countries.    The school provides Year 1-13 education which culminates in IGCSEs and A levels, allowing students to fit back into schools, colleges or universities in their home countries.    All the teachers at HOPAC are committed Christians (from 10 nationalities), many sent by mission agencies such as AIM.     There are waiting lists for every class, as parents from other faith backgrounds (and none) recognise the excellent quality of education on offer.
