Video: This Is Us

If you can’t see the video above, you can find it here (it’s a one minute introduction to us and to what we do). This post is more than a year old. It is quite possible that any links to other websites, pictures or media content will no longer be valid. Things change on the web […]

A Dog’s Tale

I’m due to fly out to join Sue tomorrow morning. This is the first time that I’ve had the opportunity to go to Madagascar, so I’m really excited. But the last few days have been a little stressful.A couple of weeks ago, Bassam had a small operation to remove a growth on her leg which […]

What Price Our Foundation Stories?

Dynamic, independent, driven Christians can be a huge pain in the neck. They want to do things their own way, they don’t fit in with established traditions or structures and they make everyone else feel very uncomfortable. On the other hand, they can see solutions to things that other people hadn’t even realised were problems and can achieve things that your normal, everyday people just miss.

Almost But Not Quite

Albert Mohler has written an interesting article about mission in the twenty-first century, which manages to ignore the most important aspects of the modern mission movement.

A Few Personal Thoughts

  This is the monthly note that I wrote to Wycliffe Bible Translators staff around the world this month: By the time you read this, Sue should be in Madagascar and I’ll be at home with the dog. I always enjoy the first few days of Sue’s trips. I quite enjoy my own company and it’s […]
