September Update from Málaga, Spain | Martin Rizley

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

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

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

“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

Growth of the Lozi Church

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
