Ammai - Mother and Missionary

Posted May 3, 2018  by: Jeff S. |0 Comments

We had begun our travels early in the morning across the Indian highways. From Madurai, the journey was not particularly long, and the scenery was pleasant to the senses. Our journey was marked with rice fields, small villages, and greenery as far as the eye could see. The mountains stood in the distance, towering above the plains. It seemed as if we were chasing them, yet never drawing close enough to satisfy my curiosity. Taking a right turn down a narrowing road, we were soon “off the b... Keep Reading

God Works in Mysterious Ways

Recently, Mrs. Gangi Sara, an elderly woman and faithful member of a church hidden in the mountains of Nepal, went home to be with the Lord. She was not famous or well-known, nor was her departure noticed by anyone outside of those who personally knew her. She was one of many elderly among the villagers, yet she was not like most. She was the only believer in her family, and her devotion to the Lord and the local church she attended was obvious to all. In fact, her attendance was amazing in itse... Keep Reading

Raised Hands

Posted June 8, 2017  by: Jeff S. |0 Comments

To be honest, I’m not sure what made me ask the question. It was at the end of the scheduled question and answer session, and there was an awkward pause. It was as if the well of questions had finally run dry. Maybe it was something in answering the previous question that brought it to mind. I’m not sure. Either way, at the end of the question, around twenty hands, out of the eighty plus pastors in that humid room were raised. Some seemingly found it difficult, almost embarrassed to ... Keep Reading

Pastors' Training Conference Was Blessed

Posted June 3, 2015  by: J. T. |0 Comments

The recent training conference for pastors in South India was greatly blessed by the Lord. All of HeartCry’s training conferences are designed to help local indigenous pastors to further their understanding of Scripture, which in turn will have a massive impact on their lives and preaching. Just by watching and listening to the pastors who were in attendance, it became obvious to me that the Lord was helping to accomplish these very things. Below are a few quotes from some of the men who a... Keep Reading

Elis Pramono is a gifted evangelist and a woman of prayer. She and her ministry partner, Sari Saat, have seen the Lord bring many Muslims to faith in Jesus Christ. For her protection, her true identity and location must remain undisclosed. Afew nights ago, I was able to catch up with two HeartCry coworkers after not seeing them for about three months. As always, hearing their testimonies of how God was at work was very encouraging and challenging. One sister, Elis, has spent most of the last th... Keep Reading

For this reason, we seek to strengthen our missionaries’ understanding of the biblical Gospel and sound doctrine by conducting regular theological tra... Keep Reading

One of the great aims of the Christian life is to please God. “We make it our aim to please him,” the apostle Paul told the Corinthian church (2 Corinthians 5:9). To Timothy, he paralleled a minister of Christ to a “soldier” whose “aim is to please the one who enlisted him” (2 Timothy 2:4). In the same way, I hope you are striving by faith to “walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him” (Colossians 1:10). Likewise, I hope and pray t... Keep Reading
