Dear Mission Partners, It’s hard to believe the first full day of our Gospel Crusade here in Douala, Cameroon has already come to an end. I only arrived at 2:30 this morning and was already preaching in the Fire Conference by 7:00 am. Then our open air, evening meeting started just a few hours later. […]
Daniel Kolenda and Eric Gilmour discuss how to overcome distractions that divert our attention in prayer – especially in the difficult times – when the pressures of life compete for our attention. “The soul was made to do everything while looking at Jesus.” ~ Eric Gilmour To follow Eric Gilmour Visit: www.Sonship-International.org www.Facebook.com/sonshipINTL To follow […]
Emmanuel was a thug. Almost daily he would steal and then and sell those items to support his growing drug habit. He told us of the time that he met a woman in a taxi, and decided he would rob her. With a knife hidden by his massive forearm, he left the taxi, crept up behind her, and threw her up against the wall. Seeing the knife was enough for the terrified woman to surrender her purse and valuables to him.
Martin Smith, Heidi Baker and Todd White share about the revelation of the Father’s heart, and the radical love of God demonstrated through Jesus Christ. “Something we need, and our generation needs, is the revelation that God is for us and not against us.” ~ Martin Smith “Every single human being is created in the image […]
This week, Daniel and Eric discuss how a person can experience God in prayer right now and the reason that so many have difficulty in this area.

She surrendered her life to Christ has been a changed woman ever since. That was more than 15-years ago. Today she is married with children of her own. She is still free and is still following Jesus. Her life is a testimony to the power of the Gospel. This is Isha’s story.

Cagular replied, “King, I would serve you the rest of my days”. We would tend to see Cagular’s pledge of allegiance and service to Cyrus as nothing more than a reasonable and expected obligation in exchange for the Kings merciful pardon. Cagular also recognized that because he was saved, he was compelled to serve.
