SUDAN: A forgotten land … (Part 1)

‘Where is the money?” Salva Kiir, the president of South Sudan, asks his deputy, Riek Machar.

“I bought guns,” Machar says.

“Where are the guns?” Kiir insists.

“I will show you,” Machar’s reply is sarcastic.

Kiir is vexed. “I will remove you.”

A Hunger like never before

You have to fly into Nampula as a roadtrip could easily take you more than 3 days from the capital city of Mozambique, Maputo.  Three Harvesters trainers do exactly that.  We never reach a high altitude throughout the trip which gives you a glorious view of Mozambique.  The scenery quickly changes as hill after hill […]

From murderer to Church Planter

As we walk the street of Trulala, Tucumán, Argentina I have an eary feeling that if it wasn’t for Daniel guiding us that we would perhaps not leave the  tiny village alive.  Aggressive young men stared us down on the dirty streets as we are on our way to a newly planted church in the […]

HIGHLIGHTS 2017: Part 3 – Don’t cry for me Argentina

Through Harvesters we have planted churches in the most unexpected, beautiful, dangerous, demanding and forgotten places on the continent.   Without compromise we have started all these churches through evangelism and discipleship ….. and a lot of relationship.  Most people often ask me:  “So just how do you plant churches in the 21st century.  Don’t we […]

Brazil is the largest country in both South America and Latin America with just over 210 Million people.  I find myself in Sao Paulo – a city of 17 million people.  It is the largest country to have Portuguese as an official language and the only one in the Americas.  Although the predominant religion consist […]

Church in a Bus Stop

Some time ago while training church planters in Rwanda – a curious pastor caught my attention.  He spoke English well as he cornered me.  “What if we are unable to plant small churches?  What if I found converts but due to their work-schedule it is impossible for them to come to church.  They work at […]

When a Hindu calls on Jesus!

INDIA – 1,3 billion people. 330 Million ‘gods’. The Hindu influence on Indian life is easy recognizable as I disembark the local Indian airline in a warm tropical Visikapatnam with the more than 850 million Hindu’s across India.
