From a team leader: A high ranking official issued a warning which was passed on to us by a third party. That’s the way they work. The officials want us to know we are being watched in regards to our faith. They know what goes on in our classes, what friendships we form with students…

A “brother” from the other side of the Island—he’s actually the only “brother” over there—came over to my house to talk. I poured two glasses of cold water, served two large pieces of chocolate cake and we began to talk. Hospitality is important to islanders, cake is important to me, it’s a good fit! He…

Five months ago a man asked a team member if he could read a local-language Bible—a rare request. He was loaned a copy and a spot was arranged where he could hide it quickly if needed. Even though he is not a Christian, he would likely be persecuted for even having the Bible. A couple…

A Team Leader: “My tears will fall on her and she will be burned by them in hell.” The Tall One, our friend in Moonscape, had heard only a few hours before that her beloved mother had died in a distant city. She arrived at our house, weeping and mourning. We mourned with her. Now…

Live Dead team leader: I spoke today by phone with the house church pastor Adham. He said the government security services continue to harass him and disrupt his life. He told me, “They tell me I can only talk about Jesus with Christians. But The God tells me to share the gospel and that means…

Forgotten Islands Team leader: “He’s got the whole world in his hands, he’s got the whole wide world in his hands…” One week ago I stood outside a medical clinic singing this to my 14 month-old son. My wife and I just went for an ultrasound because my wife was 10 weeks pregnant. The ultrasound…

A team leader: Sometimes it is not the work that is so tiring as much as it is the effort it takes to communicate with those around us. These past few weeks have made us aware of the need to weigh everything we say or do. We are always aware that what we say or…

From a team member in the Swahili Coast: Our school has begun having English club once a month. During this time, we invite all of our students to come watch or listen to an inspirational lecture.
