29 May 2014–Last week I received the most amazing gift on my birthday. I was told that the newest princess to join us at Michael’s Children’s Village (MCV) (lets call her “Princess P”) tested HIV NEGATIVE!!! Gloriously, this is the third time God has wondrously healed HIV at MCV. So today I wanted to take a little walk back in time and reflect on each precious miracle. We begin with “Baby J”. The day he was born at a local gove…

Written by Kristen West, Central Mozambique Base

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…

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…
