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.

The heat of the day follows me as we travel through the over congested city of Andhra Pradesh. […]

Why Giants don’t scare me anymore!

Why Giants Don’t Scare Me Anymore

Giants always seem unbeatable at first. Goliath stood in the way of victory for Israel, but was felled by faith. For a first century Christian, as fellow believers were used as torches to light up Nero’s garden parties, the Roman Empire must have looked unassailable. However, within a few centuries […]

Why not a plant a church at the Bus Stop?

I have visited Rwanda on several occasions.  It started to be a place of reconciliation for me.  The country taught me much.  Its sad history turned out to save my heart in many ways.  The people are gentle – kind – compassionate.

Running through burning Mozambique

We arrive late afternoon at an important depot for Bibles deep in into the bush of Mozambique’s central province.    The dirt road is difficult to travel on.  The area is classified by the local village as a hot spot in the recent violence that flared up early 2016 between Frelimo forces of the government […]

All in a days work – and a miracle! – Part 2

Kisumu, Kenya:  I’m getting use to Kisumu and its weather.  Hot and humid as most of the places I go to these days.  I’ve heard that our 20 pastors in training will be waiting for us at 06:00 am!  I woke before any chicken could announce the new day.  After a quick breakfast Herbie and I […]

A Bible worth US$24 000!

Imagine the reaction in the household of an average Christian family if a friend were to burst in exclaiming, “I found a Bible! I found a Bible!” They would likely view him as somewhat peculiar or somehow disturbed. “I’ve got a whole bookshelf full of Bibles! So what, if you’ve found one?” would not be […]

About time

WOW …. it has been much too long since I have shared life stories through cyberspace.  I was awakened early this morning by a mail from Budleigh, United Kingdom inquiring why I have been so awfully quiet the last few months. (So this post is specially for you Barbara Rainford!)  The last few months were […]
