    Costa Rica Year-End Bible School 

    By Bro. David Collister

    December 2021 arrived, along with the Costa Rican Year-End Bible School. In a very rare occurrence indeed, I was in Costa Rica for the second time within six months. This came out of several circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 Pandemic. It is truly a blessing that we were able to hold this Bible School in person, as well as provide a link for those who could not be here in person. Technology truly is a blessing in these circumstances. continue reading

    Ukraine Update – March 4

    By David Pearce and Mark Sheppard

    The situation in Ukraine remains fluid and so by the time this appears it could well be out of date. We have a number of brothers and sisters in the danger zones in Ukraine. The Donetsk region was taken over by the rebels in 2014, but they were fought back by Ukraine soldiers, so that Kramatorsk, where our Sis Elena M lives, went back into Ukraine control. continue reading

    Malawi and Mozambique Update

    By CBM-UK

    Since our initial update about the effect of flooding and then Storm Ana on our brothers and sisters in Malawi, we have received an update which now puts the number of those in need of welfare aid at over 2,800 people. To put this into context for our community, the Southern Region is where 150 of the 172 Malawian Ecclesias are based (with a membership of approximately 8,000). The Malawian Area Elders have requested food aid from CBM Welfare for around a third of all our members in Malawi from 111 different ecclesias. continue reading

  • Between January 22-25, Tropical Storm Ana hit Madagascar and then tracked to Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. Tens of thousands of people have been affected across this region of Africa, including many of our brothers and sisters in Malawi who live in the south of the country. For them, this storm happened just days after severe flooding across a wide area, which had already caused many homes to collapse and had destroyed hundreds of fields of newly planted crops, affecting over 900 members of our community. continue reading

    Missionary Life in Bolivia

    By Bro. Isaiah & Sis. Rosie Tunnell

    Imagine sitting down for afternoon tea at someone’s house, and as you lift your hot drink to your lips, you glance around the room and notice a human skull staring back at you. In Bolivia, this is a very real possibility.  The animistic beliefs of the Aymara, Quechua, and other indigenous groups, contribute hugely to the culture of Bolivia. La Pachamama (Mother Earth) is worshipped as the life-giver, and spirits are said to inhabit many things, one of those being human skulls. continue reading

    “Here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?”

    By Bro. Isaiah & Sis. Rosie Tunnell

    This has been going through our minds for the last month or so, but instead: ‘there is no water!’ If we start the story back at the beginning of November, two lovely ladies, Ilda and Dalia of the ecclesia here in La Paz, had their interviews for baptism… only for us to discover shortly thereafter that there were still no pools open due to all the Coronavirus restrictions! We spent a few weeks looking at different options: bath was out… continue reading
