Passing the Torch: Kids in Missions

Man telling Bible stories to crowd of captivated children

“Am I going to have to wait until I’m an old man to teach people about the Lord?” our nine year old son blurted out in frustration. Earlier, Caleb had overheard my wife and I discussing who would run her weekly bible class in the village during her absence… and he felt like it should be him. After all, I had just prayed with him the night before about God using him to minister to others. This was his opportunity…

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. Now that they were well past childbearing years, it is very likely that they had stopped praying and had accepted the fact that they would die childless…

Fifty-Seven Come to Christ in Myanmar

Smiling burmese children

Pastor James and his teams testify that 57 people came to Christ and that they were able to feed 78 children in three different locations. They also noted that the Agape Children’s Home now has four residents. They hope to soon reach 10 as support allows. They distributed 50 New Testaments to new Christians. More Bibles are needed for only $2.15 each.

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!

Japanese Practice

Busy train station in Japan

“Maybe while reading this book, I will change my way of thinking,” said my contact with whom I’d been sharing the Gospel. We were reading through a book about God together for Japanese practice. I could tell that she was really drawn to the book, but I did not expect this kind of comment. Later that night, I met another contact who was teaching some students English. While the kids played…

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…

How Santa Got A Full Belly (It’s Not What You Think)

Little African girl

We spent our day in the interior finishing our home visits. We drove and drove and drove some more! We walked and walked and walked until we thought we were going to pass out! We realized we should have brought protein snacks with us and more water because of the distance and the hot African sun…

No Turning Back

You could have heard a pin drop after Sergio made the announcement. Some of the party guests appeared frozen with drinks raised half way to their gaping mouths, a few wept… but no one spoke. They were familiar faces to Sergio, family members and long time friends all gathered together to celebrate his high school graduation, yet he had felt uneasy about how they would respond to his words. Now we were all staring at him…

The Deaf Hear

It was cold. We were above the Arctic Circle in Siberia holding evangelistic services. The Iron Curtain had fallen, and the Russian people were hungry to hear the good news of salvation. The night before we had preached to almost seven hundred people, and many had responded to the message. It was my privilege that morning to have been asked to speak at a deaf and mute colony of about twenty people. Knowing my words would be translated into Russian and then converted into sign language…

Letter from the mission field of Walter Fleming

By Walter Fleming, WIM Founder For the past six years, my “mission field” has been in my home office, writing and editing books and sermons. At first, I thought in terms of numbers—numbers of books written, printed, translated and numbers… Read More
