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...

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...

They are the Kieni People, displaced since 1992, and called “forgotten”  by the UN. In 2001, the Kenyan government moved this tribal agricultural people into a refugee camp next to the Kieni forest. Over the years, it lost all their paperwork and documentation. Eventually, the government forgot all about the Kieni people. In part, because members of the Eagle Church of the Nazarene, Idaho, decided to take up their cause, the Kieni people are forgotten no more. And because of Eagle church, a new partnership was born last year between a nonprofit organization called Expansion...

El Dr. Jim Radcliffe (izquierda en la foto), un cirujano misionero en el Hospital Nazareno de Kudjip, Papúa Nueva Guinea, comenzó a darse cuenta este año que sus niveles de energía se encontraban más bajos que de costumbre. Los días de mucho trabajo lo agotaban como nunca antes. Y un día, mientras que caminaba cuesta arriba en un cerro, sintió que se quedaba sin aliento. Jim se hizo observar por un colega y descubrió que su corazón se había agrandado debido a una deficiencia cardíaca congestiva. Su médico temía que él ya hubiera tenido un ataque cardíaco. Jim y su esposa, Kathy, ya...

Dr. Jim Radcliffe (left in photo), a missionary surgeon at the Nazarene hospital in Kudjip, Papua New Guinea, started noticing earlier this year that his energy levels were lower than usual. Busy work days completely wore him out. And one day, while walking up a hill, he became very short of breath. Jim sought a check-up from a fellow doctor and discovered that his heart was enlarged from congestive heart failure. His physician worried he may have already had a heart attack. Jim and his wife, Kathy, were already scheduled to return to the States to accompany a group of missionary...
