Adiedo Opens its Doors to the Gospel

Preaching to residents of Adiedo village
From the village headmen, the area chief, the inspector of police, the district commandant of police,  to the District Commissioner, the highest official representing the provincial administration, the message is the same:  "Thank you for bringing the Good News of Jesus Christ to our community!"

The young rejoice
The last four days we have held leadership conferences that targetted church and community leaders as well as toured various development projects that our ministry partners sponsor.  The work that SWIM's partner, Spring of Hope International, has done in the community has openned the hearts and minds of the residents of this quiet village. 

Hundreds respond to follow Christ
Today we kick off the two-day evangelistic festival.  I am eager to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  For it is the power of God to salvation.  The festival will feature local choirs, testimonies, a guest artist from Tanzania, Anastacia Mukabwa, and me preaching Christ. 

Hundreds listen to the gospel
Pray for a mighty outpouring of the Spirit of God for the salvation of thousands.  Already, 61 people have come to Christ through the leadership conference.  We can't wait to see the fullness of what Christ will do as we preach the Gospel.

No Room in the Inn...21st Century Version

It is the Christmas season 2009.  Like Joseph and Mary 2000 years ago, a young couple are on the virge of the birth of their first baby boy.  Although they are doing everything to prepare for the big day, it still catches them by surprise.  Instead of the regular 40 weeks, the baby is arriving six weeks early. Because they are not expecting it this early, their bags are not packed nor is the nursery fully furnished.  Safe for an early morning warning in a dream to the father to prepare to be in a delivery room and with assurance (from the Lord) that it would be o.k, the day started off as any other day. At 6:00 AM, the couple prays together for about 40 minutes in their home in Victoria.  They take showers.  At about 7:30 AM, the husband goes to work briefly from his home office while the wife prepares something for their breakfast together. Within a couple hours they will have a routine prenatal doctor's appointment.  Later in the evening the wife's sister and her two beau

The Other Frontline in the Battle for Souls- By Suzanne Wanyonyi

I've learned quite a bit while Sammy's been away in India. Other wives have told me over the years, that when their husbands are gone for ministry for extended periods of time, the enemy tries to attack during the husband's absence by causing the garage door to break, or the toilets to break or the hot water heater to go out. So, from the very beginning of our marriage I anticipated those things and shared my concern about them with Sammy. He understood. We've always had a plan in case something breaks around the house while he's away. Well, none of those things have ever happened. Other things have happened.  During this latest mission, while nearly 80,000 people were being won to Christ, the attack came in a way I wasn't expecting: The kids. There were more than a few nights where I had about 2 hours of sleep because the kids kept waking up. With Malaika it's not so uncommon, but Junior has slept from 8-8 for as long as I can remember. He'

RECESSION-PROOFING I- Expect Rightly

There is such a thing as having right expectations. There is also such a thing as having wrong expectations. Healthy living in this failing economic environment requires us to expect rightly. What we expect regarding the world economy hurts or redeems the quality of our lives in the face of current economic crisis. Jesus tells us in Matthew 6:19 about what is and isn't right expectation as far us our world economies are concerned. He warns us to expect a sudden collapse or meltdown of our earthly securities and investments. He warns us that moth and rust are sure to nibble away on our lives' savings. We are seeing the spectacular fulfillment of these warnings in our time as huge Wall-Street conglomerates collapse overnight. They are taking with them thousands of dollars of investors' money and workers' jobs. Isn't this the rust and moth that Jesus is talking about? No matter how gigantic a worldly system might be, it will ultimately collapse. It is natural for it to
