January 2017 Visit to Cape Town, South Africa

Posted February 18, 2017  by: S. R. |0 Comments

I can still remember reading the first of Mario Maneville’s reports when I returned to the role of Africa Coordinator over 18 months ago.

I arrived late Saturday night, and Sunday morning joined Bill’s church, Reconciliation... Keep Reading

Andrew Z_profileAfter December 2016, HeartCry will end support for missionary pastor Andrew Zekveld. If this statement stood alone, thoughts might tend toward the negative: ‘Why is HeartCry ending his support?
