KENYA: A sect turns to Jesus!

For years they had followed a man who claimed to be the messiah. Recently he had become ill, and then to everyone’s shock, he died. For […]

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 […]

HIGHLIGHTS 2017: Part 2 – The local church and gangs in Brazil

A forgotten island …

As we fly into Bluefields, Nicaragua – we are greeted by a thunderstorm ….. low clouds and gusting winds.  I find myself hugged in my seat in the small Caravan watching the pilot lining himself up with the runway.

Bluefields is connected with the presence on the Nicaraguan Caribbean coast of many pirates, subjects of powers at the time […]

Leave the 99 …

Matthew 18:12 – “What do you think?  If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray and gets lost, will he not leave the 99 on the mountain and go in search of the one that is lost?”

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.
