It’s the third Saturday of January 2015 and I pull into the French Quarter Apartment community and what meets my ears makes me smile…even laugh a little.  What I hear is laughter, squeals, and boys yelling “throw it to me!” When I round the corner I see a football game, kickball, jump rope, sidewalk artists at work and bubbles rising into the air. This is Mobile First Church of the Nazarene's Saturday to reach out to the French Quarter apartments near our church in Mobile, Alabama. The French Quarter Apartments is a Section 8 housing complex where many live on fixed incomes and sometimes...

In the north of Myanmar, about 22 driving hours away from Yangon (Rangoon), the gate city Kalemyo opens the way to the Chin Tribe, truly a birthplace of Burmese Christianity.  Because Kalemyo is close to this tribe, it has become a city of mega churches of various denominations.  On one particular day, as I travelled the ridge that leads to Kalemyo, God led me to Nine Mile Church.Around 10 people, including small children, gather to pray and worship as part of NMC. They meet in the house of Rinpuii, who is one of the members of the church.  While they do not yet have a church...

My little slips of paper were huddled together, folded and shivering for a turn to reveal their message.  Outside that warm cabin up on Bulgaria’s Vitosha mountain, there was a sunny crispness to the air and the satisfying crunch of iced snow. It was the sort of winter new that leads you to believe that there is hope for this broken world.Those slips of paper? They were holy revelation – a declaration of truth.We were 10 friends meeting together to plan for a new year of ministry in the Sofia Church. While the world seemed to hold its January breath outside,...

El 31 de diciembre, Jim y Kathy Radcliffe, así como su hija Lydia, regresaron de su asignación en los Estados Unidos al hospital nazareno en Kudjip, Papúa Nueva Guinea (PNG). La familia Radcliffe partió este año de PNG rumbo a su asignación temporal antes de lo esperado, como resultado de la salud del Dr. Jim. Luego de regresar a los Estados Unidos, ellos se enteraron de que una de las válvulas del corazón de Jim tenía un defecto, así como una aorta agrandada que requería de cirugía. Durante su preparación para la cirugía, se le encontró un tumor en su glándula adrenal. Cuando...

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...
