Indonesian children watching monsoon

Recently one Sunday night, I received an urgent Skype call from “Ruth,” our fel­low mis­sion­ary in Indonesia. Her house was in dan­ger of flood­ing yet again as a mon­soon storm was rag­ing out­side. She had no one to help her and she was in charge of a num­ber of young chil­dren. Immediately, a verse that had been on my mind through­out the day came out in the form of this prayer…

God Has Heard Your Prayer!

Zechariah was a Jewish priest. He and his wife Elizabeth want­ed to have chil­dren, but Elizabeth was bar­ren. They had prayed for many years, but their prayers were not answered.

Tumor Disappeared

Bolivian cancer patients

For sev­er­al years, Piedra Viva’s women have made bi-month­ly vis­its to a local shel­ter for low-income can­cer patients, bring­ing them fresh pro­duce, dry goods and a word of encour­age­ment from Scripture. This year Ana Vargas has spear­head­ed our efforts, and has been bring­ing sev­er­al of the women to church on Sundays. One such woman, Rina, came for­ward for prayer and God touched her. She shared that at her last check-up the doc­tors told her that her tumor had com­plete­ly dis­ap­peared. Praise God!

Veteran Missionary David Garcia: Mayans, Miracles, and Mount Sinai

David Garcia is no ordi­nary man. Actually, he is ordi­nary, but his tenac­ity and per­se­ver­ance make him extra­or­di­nary. I have seen him con­front and over­come much adver­si­ty in the course of his min­istry. I first met David in 1983 at King’s Way Missionary Institute in McAllen, Texas. He was already…

Mortgage Burned!

When God per­forms mir­a­cles, we like to cel­e­brate them prop­er­ly. This sum­mer, that cel­e­bra­tion includ­ed play­ing with fire. WIM began con­struc­tion on our cur­rent head­quar­ters in 2003, but fin­ish­ing it required tak­ing out a loan in 2004. Only… Read More
