The Growth of God's Word

hc88-150x263The mission appears impossible. No, I’m not referring to a small team of secret agents toppling rogue dictators, but rather a paltry group of believers commissioned to proclaim the gospel to the remotest parts of the earth and to make disciples from all people groups! Honestly, the mission which Christ gave to his disciples was impossible&m... Keep Reading

Lord Hears the Petitions of His People!

Posted December 9, 2016  by: Samuel B. |0 Comments

Brothers and Sisters in Christ: on March 4, 2015, an update was given on the Asia blog entitled, “One Baptism Observed and Another Hindered.” (It was printed in Issue 82 of the HeartCry Magazine). It spoke of a young man (who we called “Daniel”) who had been attending the church for the past two years, showed great evidence of faith, and was scheduled to be baptized. However, his family, displeased with his actions, prevented the baptism from taking place. Our request for... Keep Reading

Training Pastors in a Closed Country

Posted December 9, 2016  by: Josh C. |0 Comments

Earlier this year Lucas A. became the first HeartCry-supported missionary in the Greater Middle East region (Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Iran, and Afghanistan) after he was forced to leave his home country and ministry behind in 2015. He currently trains pastors and church leaders who still live there. His ministry consists of translating biblical resources into his native tongue, corresponding regularly with church leaders, and organizing training conferences for pastors. He and his w...

HeartCry began supporting five new missionaries this year who are working with Middle East Student Fellowship† (MESF), a university student ministry in an undisclosed country in the Middle East. MESF was launched shortly after September 11, 2001. They are active on about twenty campuses across the country, sharing the gospel with students from diverse religious and cultural backgrounds. Their aim is to establish indigenous fellowships of students on the campuses, supported and led by an ... Keep Reading

Summer Update from the Netherlands

Posted December 9, 2016  by: Jacques Brunt |0 Comments

We are grateful and happy to be able to once again report of the work that we have been doing over the past few months. The mere fact that the Lord is willing to use weak people in His divine hands is astonishing to us. I am reminded of the words of the Apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 1:21: “For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.” Our family st...

September Update from Málaga, Spain | Martin Rizley

Posted December 9, 2016  by: Martin Rizley |0 Comments

In looking back over our first year in Spain, I am thankful for the advances that we have been able to make in establishing our home and initiating our work here. I am also excited about plans for the coming year. Here are a list of motives for thanksgiving and prayer: In a space of less than a year, the Lord has sustained us through two major moves, each of which involved an incredible amount of mental and physical labor as well as countless hours of paperwork. The whole process of establishin... Keep Reading

At the beginning of 2016, HeartCry began supporting Eduardo Aricari in his church-planting efforts in the city of Huaycan, located about an hour outside of Lima. In addition to pastoring, Eduardo also trains pastors and church leaders with a local seminary in various regions of Peru. A young man that I have been discipling, named Yoel has had to travel to the mountains for his studies. The Lord put it on his heart to share what he had been learning with the people in the high regions of Huancav... Keep Reading

Esteban is one of the pastors of Family of Grace Church in Rosario, Argentina, which he and Nicolás Serrano began planting five years ago. This month we have had some new people visit our church meetings on Sundays. The most interesting case is the father of a young member of our church, who started regularly attending the church services a few weeks ago. It is interesting because this man has always been hostile to the gospel. Nonetheless, according the testimony that his son gave about... Keep Reading

Dario Sara is pastoring a congregation in the district of Villa el Salvador, Lima. The following report is an example of the increasing crime rate in Peru. Please continue to pray for the safety of the missionaries and their churches. This month, we survived an attempted robbery just as we had finished one of our services. Some brothers and sisters had already left, while others were enjoying a time of fellowship. The children were running around the door of the church building when we saw two ... Keep Reading

Jose Luis is the co-pastor of “Jesús es la Puerta” (Jesus is the Door) Baptist Church in Mallaritos, just outside of Sullana. He also helps teach and lead the Bible Academy for pastors in the mountains of northern Peru. God is leading us in the preaching of HIs gospel and in the work of making disciples in Mallaritos and in Las Palmeras. We are organizing house visits in order to continue with the work of discipleship here in Mallaritos, and we are also going out every Saturd... Keep Reading

Russia Restricts Religious Freedom and Missionary Activities

Posted December 9, 2016  by: Holden Barry |0 Comments

On July 6th, Russian president Vladimir Putin signed a law restricting a wide range of missionary activity. This directly and significantly impacts all of the pastors and missionaries that HeartCry partners with throughout Eurasia. For this reason, we have disabled the portion of our website where their information was listed. We appreciate your patience as we seek to protect their identities. We are now in the process of rebuilding the Eurasia content of the website and will seek to continue to... Keep Reading

Theological Training Done Well in Zambia

Posted December 9, 2016  by: S. R. |0 Comments

“Would HeartCry consider helping fund another ministerial college in Zambia?” This was the question posed to me by Pastor Conrad Mbewe during my January visit to Zambia. We were already partnering with Lusaka Ministerial College in their training of low-income pastors in the capital city and rural Lozi pastors in Western Province. Now Pastor Conrad was asking us to consider an additional partnership with Copperbelt Ministerial College in Ndola. Of course, HeartCry’s financial ... Keep Reading

Exploring New Territory

Posted December 9, 2016  by: S. R. |0 Comments

In July of this year, I made my first visit to the African country of Mozambique. This trip was initiated by an invitation from Dr. Charles Woodrow, a missionary doctor who has ministered in Mozambique for 26 years. The grace and wisdom of God at work in Dr. Woodrow is wonderful to behold, and his approach to medical missions is refreshingly biblical. During his years as a practicing surgeon in a government hospital, Dr. Woodrow shared the gospel with thousands of patients. Many of these patient... Keep Reading

Growth of the Lozi Church

Posted December 9, 2016  by: S. R. |0 Comments

In February 2016, Senanga Baptist Church celebrated their third anniversary. Senanga is Kabwata Baptist Church’s first church-plant among the Lozi people in the remote region of Western Province, Zambia. This is the region where my brother and I, with our families, ministered from 2009 to 2011. During those three years as cross-cultural missionaries, we saw very little fruit. In contrast, HeartCry’s first indigenous Lozi missionary, Poniso Kuyumbana, is seeing an average of 75-100 pe... Keep Reading

Autonomy!

Posted December 9, 2016  by: S. R. |0 Comments

After 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? What has he done?” Actually, in this case, ending support for Andrew is one of the most positive and encouraging steps we can take––it is cause for great rejoicing in our faithful God! You see, HeartCry’s intention never is to support a missionary indefinitely. In order for ... Keep Reading

War Zone D

Posted December 9, 2016  by: J. T. |0 Comments

War Zone D was the location of fierce battles in the Vietnam War and an area where Christians, along with anti-communist forces, were exiled by the North Vietnamese Army (NVA) following the Paris Peace Accords in 1973. War Zone D was also targeted by the herbicidal war program (Agent Orange) that defoliated leaves, killed the root systems of most plants, and destroyed the agricultural productivity of the lush region. Following the war, all that remained of War Zone D was barren land, exiles of t... Keep Reading

Ganges

It is an assault on the senses. As we walk down the narrow streets littered with trash and discarded food, the air is filled with the aroma of burnt corn, mixed with the waste of free-roaming cows. Every turn provides both a familiar smell and an unrecognized odor. Temples, idols, and creatures that appear to belong in a Hollywood horror film stand guard at the head of every street, their shadows growing longer with the setting of the sun. Each of these weather-beaten idols is decorated with fre... Keep Reading
