(May 15, 2017) GodReports’ Mark Ellis reports a great testimony
Nabil* and his family were refugees and had recently settled in a small apartment that happened to be near a Christian named Greg. Nabil found work at the lowest rung of the income ladder, as a manual labourer.
One day Nabil suffered a severe ankle injury that kept him off the job. Greg began visiting Nabil’s apartment regularly to help him rehabilitate, according to a report by Frontiers.
After months of therapy and rest, Nabil’s ankle was still so swollen that he could only take a few tentative steps across the apartment. It seemed it would take several more months before he would be pain-free and able to return to his demanding physical work.

Since mid-April, 2015, this Salvation Army Asylum Seekers Support Service chaplain has had Iranian asylum seekers coming to him asking to become Christians.
Mark Ellis recounts good news …
Read Acts 2! Peter’s first sermon came at such an exciting moment in church history, with the filling or baptism of the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost.

Pentecost was a harvest festival, when the Jewish people presented to God the firstfruits of their wheat harvest (Exodus 34:22). And there were thousands of these pilgrims in Jerusalem from all over the Mediterranean region and Asia Minor. (more…)
Missionary statesman George Forbes – often endeared as ‘the storyteller’ – shares from his compilation of amazing stories from trusted sources in the missionary world…
Missionaries regularly report about the man in white as they continue to see how God is working in the Muslim world. They are praying regularly asking God to give dreams and visions to their Muslim friends as well. (more…)
