Angola is a beautiful country with amazing people. Vibrant, growing …..but the latest policies by government to restrict churches changed everything. We found some of our pastors jailed by planting new churches. What is behind all of this? We have planted nearly 1 000 churches by the time I left Angola […]
Sharing a few highlights just as the COVID-19 pandemic hit the world. To truly do successful missions you have to …. have to …. have to ….. LOVE THE INDIGENOUS. For the next few months I will share some of these amazing moments which we undertook through Harvesters!
Imagine burying your Messiah… No, I am not referring to Joseph of Aramanthea. George* was heartbroken. He and all the churches in his denomination had suffered a tremendous loss. 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 […]
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.

The movie HOTEL RWANDA was Hollywood’s version of what happened in Rwanda during the genocide. Although they tried to tell a horrific story …. the real truth is far more shocking in cruel. A book saw the light a year ago …… Their story is a bit closer to the truth and look at […]
I seem to keep on saying it constantly ……. ‘time is flying’! The last three months seemed to have disappeared somewhere. I struggle to keep track through the distances travelled and even the wonderful people that crossed our paths the last few months. After extensive training programs we received 50 amazing transformational agents from […]
Journeys are wonderful things! They are always filled with the prospect of experiencing the unexpected. A journey for me means a lot of things. As a wise ‘someone’ once said: “Business before pleasure unless pleasure is your business!” My work and business are pure pleasure.
WHAT MAKES US TICK – as we work!
To be at […]
Jesus loves his church. He died for it, prays for it, lives for it and is going to return for it – for AFRICA too.
