You have helped to strengthen and resource men and women who provide pastoral oversight, leadership and vision to a network of churches across Nepal. Your sacrifice and kind-heartedness are helping to build relational and missional bridges in the Czech Republic that will reach a predominantly secular and post-Christian population with the gospel. Thank you so very much!

I’ve just returned from a ten-day visit to Egypt. I was invited by my friend, Yani Mafdy, to teach at the Tyrannus Missionary School outside of Cairo.

In two weeks time I will be traveling to Hindustan Bible Institute (HBI) in Chennai, India. Recently Chennai underwent record rainfalls resulting in massive flooding across this populated urban area, and the Bible Institute was no exception! Despite these challenges, our friends at HBI are insisting we come to teach and train eager young men and women preparing for ministry.

I remember the day well—July 20, 1969. As a fourteen-year old my eyes were glued to a flickering black and white television set.
