South Africa

By | Africa, Countries | No Comments

South Africa is a multi-ethnic nation and has diverse cultures and languages. Eleven official languages are recognized in the constitution. Two of these languages are of European origin: English and Afrikaans, a language which originated mainly from Dutch. South Africa boasts the fifth highest per capita income in Africa yet 25% of the population is unemployed and lives on less than $1.25 a day.

South Africa Evangelistic Mission has approximately 125 churches. Under the leadership of David & Donna Haag, this group has churches scattered all over South Africa. In 2011, Tyrone Paul was named Chairman for SAEM. He is a very passionate and capable leader for this group of churches. I’m privileged to help provide council and advice to this group. Great Kingdom impact is certain from this fellowship.

Egypt

By | Africa, Countries | No Comments
[dropcap]E[/dropcap]gypt has one of the longest histories of any modern state, having been continuously inhabited since the 10th millennium BC. Its monuments, such as the Giza pyramid complex and its Great Sphinx, were constructed by its ancient civilization, which was one of the most advanced of its time. Its ancient ruins, such as those of Memphis, Thebes, Karnak, and the Valley of the Kings outside Luxor, are a significant focus of archaeological study and popular interest. Egypt’s rich cultural legacy, as well as the attraction of its Red Sea Riviera, has made tourism a vital part of the economy, employing about 12% of the country’s workforce. Less than 1.5% of the population claims to be Evangelical.

My first trip to Egypt was in 2008. I was privileged to return in 2012. Wow! What a Biblically historic nation! And, it certainly is on Biblical radar in the days we’re living in!

The Assemblies of God host annual conferences, with up to 20+ denominations represented. Until or unless you are able to be in such an environment, where the freedom to worship, pray and learn God’s Word is so sacred, there are no words to describe the value of such a gathering. Please join me in prayer for our brothers and sisters in this nation.

Taiwan

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]aiwan is a state in East Asia. Originally based in mainland China, the Republic of China now governs the island of Taiwan. Only 2.6% of the population claim to be Christian.

I have fond memories of this trip. It was here that for the first time I ate sushi, octopus, squid and other such foods. It was actually pretty good. Our hosts were incredible, very giving and kind people. The power of God was so strong in the meetings making a deep impact among these tenderhearted believers.

India

By | Asia, Countries | No Comments

The seventh largest country in the world and the most populous democracy with over 1.2 billion people. Boasting the tenth largest economy India still has major socio-economic problems. It is estimated that 42% of the population lives below the international poverty line, less than $1.25 a day. Half of the children in India are underweight and nearly half of the children under three years of age suffer from malnutrition.

There is an extreme need for Biblical training among ministry leaders in India. We are actively pursuing printing Dale Yerton’s book, “Foundation Truths” into the Telugu language.
