A mountain range lies north of Kudjip station, just across the highlands' only serviceable road.  Beyond the mountains sits a valley filled with tropical jungle and people living in one of the most remote parts of the globe.  The name of this area is the Jimi valley.Three weeks ago, Beron made the trip from her home in the Jimi to the local aid post for a routine checkup before her delivery.  An incredibly astute nurse, probably working in one of the most remote clinics in the world, palpated (touched) her abdomen and thought that Beron might have twins and they might not be in...

Clark y Connie Armstrong son misioneros que se encuentran sirviendo en Filipinas. Ellos recientemente compartieron la siguiente historia en Facebook. Hoy concurrimos a nuestra iglesia en Taytay, Rizal, en las Filipinas, y escuchamos una maravillosa historia compartida por la pastora Lucinda, quien trajo el mensaje el día de hoy. Esta iglesia fue construida hace muchos años gracias a las ofrendas de alabastro, y hoy en día cuentan con una congregación muy sólida. Hace aproximadamente un mes, ellos decidieron recibir una ofrenda de alabastro. En ese entonces (hace un mes atrás) el "Ice...

When Pastor Jeremy Johnston, of Salt Lake City Central Church of the Nazarene, began chatting with Hugh Friberg, of Nampa First Church, during the Intermountain District Assembly last year, the casual conversation led to what is developing into a major partnership between Nampa First and the four Nazarene local churches in Salt Lake City. Johnston (with family, photo left) has led Central church for the past three years in a place which has proved to be quite a challenge for the work of the Church of the Nazarene. The Intermountain District has successfully planted one church in...

Clark and Connie Armstrong are missionaries serving in the Philippines. They recently shared this story via Facebook.We attended our church today in Taytay, Rizal, in the Philippines, and heard a wonderful story from Pastora Lucinda who brought the message. This church was built years ago with Alabaster funds and now they are a strong church. So a month ago, they decided to receive an Alabaster offering. At that time -- a month ago -- the "Bucket Challenge" was in full swing across Facebook and social media, so their church creative team came up with different colored buckets at the front...

There I was, crying and kneeling before God, giving praise to Him Who still is working on me to become more than I am today.  I was on the grass in an open area where soon a church would be built in a town outside Buenos Aires, Argentina. And God had just taught me more of the lessons He knows I need. It was our first Work & Witness trip. My amazing wife, Leesa, and I joined our church, First Church of the Nazarene, Medford, Oregon, U.S. in its trip to Argentina.  We have a great group of people under the leadership of seasoned team leaders, Terry and Andrea Phillips. ...

About a month ago a man named Luis, who lived three hours away in a community named Buenos Aires, came to Santo Domingo, Ecuador, to have surgery. During his visit, Luis came into contact with the district superintendent, Santiago Bereche, and his wife. They prayed with him for his surgery and a week later he came to Santiago's church and said that he had some property where we could put a church. With the help of Jon Fischer, a missionary who serves as a Work & Witness Coordinator, Santiago, and Marcelo, the JESUS Film ministry coordinator, they decided to put up a portable chapel (photo...

My name is Yesenia Balderramo, I’m 22 years old, and a year ago I accepted Christ as my Savior and since then my life and the lives of my family members have changed.I can honestly tell you after my experience with God’s grace that blessings and curses really are generational. Growing up, I thought that immorality, throwing around insults, vanity, pride and other social family issues were normal things. I didn’t think much about it, and I had often defended and justified those kinds of actions within my family. When I encountered God (Sept 2013), I discovered that there was no university...

"The Germans are coming!" This has been the joke around our church office at Bakersfield First Church for the last several months. All summer we have prepared to receive a mission team here in California from Germany. We prayed, borrowed air mattresses and learned to say, "Willkommen" ("Welcome"). These Germans would not catch us unprepared! Still, with all our preparations I was not ready for the disorientation of being on the receiving end of short-term missions.I'm no stranger to international missions. I was 10 when my family joined our church on my very first mission trip to Mexico. I...

Ellos son el pueblo kieni, desplazados desde 1992 y declarados "olvidados" por la ONU. En 2001, el gobierno de Kenia trasladó a este grupo tribal agricultor hacia un campo de refugiados cerca del bosque de Kieni. Con el correr de los años, el pueblo perdió toda su documentación. Eventualmente, el gobierno se olvidó por completo del pueblo kieni. En parte gracias a miembros de la iglesia nazarena Eagle (águila), en Idaho (Estados Unidos), quienes decidieron sumarse a su causa, los kieni ya no se encuentran en el olvido. Y debido a la iglesia Eagle es que surgió una nueva asociación...
