Overwhelming

After almost a three-hour journey, we finally arrived at our spot for the day. We were welcomed by smiling faces and a boisterous song. Greetings were exchanged and names given as the doctors set up their area. For the first time in a very long time, if ever, medical treatment was available in the village. The peo…

Persistence Beats Resistance

Written by Rosalyne Field, Mocimboa da Praia Base

Our God is the God of open doors and making the impossible possible! We have a phrase in Christian circles: “Closed Nations”, or “Hard Ground”. I don’t think God uses those terms. He might use “Unreached”, signifying that none of His children has gone there yet to reach them with the Powerful Gospel…

On the steps of out school

Over the years we have done our best to help get them off the streets, back living with family or friends, and then back into school. To date we have rescued upwards of 350 child…

When we arrived in Conakry

Written by Sia, Conakry: Village of Hope Base

When we arrived in Conakry we were appalled to see the large number of homeless children living on the streets trying to find a way to feed themselves and a safe place to sleep. Most were dirty, malnourished and abused, and many used drugs in an effort to try and escape the daily struggle they faced just to stay a…

Written by Rachel Jane Wallace, Mahajanga, Madagascar Base

When we first met Dokylahy we were shocked to see bone sticking out of his leg, as well as his continually weeping. It had been like this a long time- the family had been unable to find/pay for medical help. Experts had even talked about maybe having to amputate Dokylahy’s leg. We prayed for the family and reall…

It Takes A Lot of Mamas!

Written by Carolyn Figlioli, South Sudan Base

Yesterday was one of my best days! I have had so many and this just adds to the many. Our mamas work and live with our children 24/7, never leaving the compound for time away. They live with us and work is always at the door as many of them have their own children here besides ours. They work without complaint…

Family Update June 2017

Written by Lauren Hassell, Abilene Base

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you say the word missionary? Most people think of someone going to a faraway country, such as India. This is not a misconception, but sometimes we overlook the country, state, city, or block that we live in as a mission field. The mission, as Jesus stated in Mat…

Up and in the open door

Written by Regina Jones, Savannah Base

POSITION AND PERSPECTIVE They are everything. Knowing that we must GO IN before we COME OUT to minister is the essence of our lives and then of course our ministry.

Baptisms

Written by Rosalyne Field, Mocimboa da Praia Base

One of my favourite things to do is baptize new believers! We have literally baptized hundreds of new believers in the last couple of years, and it is such a joyful time.

Coming Home, The Zeal of The Lord

Written by Carolyn Figlioli, South Sudan Base

I have been “home” in Uganda for almost two weeks now and I tell you, it is medicine to my soul. Although I very much enjoyed my time in Holland and in America, my heart ever yearned for what I have been called and activated to do, living among the people of South Sudan and now Uganda, immersing myself in the…
