Sharif A: Ministry with Refugees

Posted March 3, 2014  by: Marc Glass |0 Comments

A wonderful and distinctive thing which happened this month was that our prayers were answered, and the church is now opened daily. With the presence of the pastor and me helping in the service, we now have a daily morning prayer time in the church to serve the region, to spiritually pursue the new believers, and to respond to anyone who is in need for a help or an advice. This way, we can easily access the church and be with people to pray together. In this month, I had a meeting in the o... Keep Reading

Posted February 17, 2014  by: Marc Glass |0 Comments

It is my hope that this update finds you growing and prospering in the grace of the Lord Jesus. Please continue praying for our missionaries in the Middle East. We are now working with ten men and three churches in seven countries throughout the region. It is my prayer that the Lord would open more doors for HeartCry to impact the indigenous church in the Middle East. In the last few months, HeartCry has taken on the support of two church planters in undisclosed countries: Boutros B. and Sharif... Keep Reading

Day 3: "Wives, Honor Your Husbands" in Egypt

Posted January 31, 2014  by: Marc Glass |0 Comments

After the teaching sessions were over yesterday, we had the privilege of taking Samuel, Samira, and their three children out to dinner. Over the last few years, I have grown to appreciate, love, and respect this family more and more as I have grown to know them better. I spoke with Samira, asking her about the teaching from the conference and the ways in which she has benefitted from it. With tear-filled eyes in as good of English as she could find, she expressed to me her gratitude that we've ... Keep Reading

Day 2: "Husbands Love Your Wives" in Egypt

Posted January 30, 2014  by: Marc Glass |0 Comments

As I mentioned yesterday: marriage, family, and gender issues are increasingly confused throughout the world; the confusion is not just a western issue. In cultures like Egypt, where the majority religion is Islam, the proper treatment of women is a major issue. Like many places, many women are verbally and physically abused and often sexually exploited. Sadly, such atrocities are hidden behind a veil of secrecy and many women have no viable option for escaping the abuse that plagues them. In s... Keep Reading

Middle East Report: Trophies of Grace

Posted September 6, 2013  by: Marc Glass |0 Comments

As I look back over the last few years of working closely with church planters and evangelists in the Middle East, my mind is continually directed to God’s promises in Scripture which He will bring to pass concerning His people. Some of the things that I have seen and heard will forever be etched in my mind: meeting with small house fellowships where conversion to Christ is illegal ... seeing thriving groups of persecuted Christians ... eating with Christians that look impoverished by Western standards, yet gladly serve you their best. In all of these situations, these Christians’ hearts and lives contain a wealth of joy that is painfully absent in the materialism of the West. They are trophies of grace and demonstrations of God’s enduring help to all who hope in Him and call upon His name.... Keep Reading
