This is Khushi's story.

Somewhere near the Southern outskirts of the huge and crowded city of Dhaka, Bangladesh, there is a tiny little school, crammed into a small apartment type building, that is trying to make a difference.   In a country of over 160 million people, a school of 350 students seems pretty insignificant, but the work that’s being done […]

What makes a leader?

This is a big topic indeed, so I will attempt to put forward some points and convictions that I have built up over the years; being led and at times having the opportunities to lead.这真是一个大话题。所以我会尝试提出我多年来建立起来的一些观点和信念;被带领,有时也有机会带领别人。 Regardless of whether it is leadership in missions or leadership in general, the challenge in this day is to be […]

Slavery: in your too hard basket?

A group of 50 young Nigerian women, promised a better life, had made it overland across the obstacle of the Sahara, run the gauntlet of exploiters waiting for them in Libya, and amazingly, made it to Italy in an overcrowded, barely seaworthy boat. Yet within days people checking on them found that all but two […]

I thought I knew what “mission” was.

When I was growing up, first in Pentecostal and then in Baptist churches in Scotland and England, I thought I knew what “mission” was. It was what missionaries did. They were special people who had responded to a call from God, directly to them, to leave behind the familiarity of home and the material benefits of […]

"We are part of something bigger than just passing exams".

From zero to 320 students since 2006; the establishment of GEMS (Golgotha Baptist English Medium School) has been quite a challenging journey. The school resides in a few rooms on top of a church in Dhaka city. Most days it is full of children—noisy, excitable and full of energy. Every space is taken up with something or […]

"We will die off one day – but the dream is for freedom to multiply and continue with locals, with people who know that place much better than us."

70 years later.

We left Dhaka at 8.30 on a cool morning. There was blue sky somewhere above the smog, and we had only 40 km to go.  The journey took over five hours. Five hours of bumps, near misses, going nowhere, sudden bursts of speed, strategic changes of direction and still more waiting. It felt like we’d never get […]

Sharing cake with the bad guy.

"The drawn curtain across our friend’s door was soon disturbed by two young men exiting her room. Kundola and I waited patiently outside. It took all I had within me not to throw the tiffin box at the boy-ish customers who, with such an air of entitlement, had nonchalantly exited her room, smoothing back their hair and holding their belt loops. Tensing my grip on the cake, I breathed deeply, wrestling with the notion of loving my enemies; a biblical concept, a Jesus-spoken command, but a really, really difficult thing to actually do. Soon enough our friend poked her head around the curtain, smiled, and called us into her room just in time for me to not have to dwell on that thought for too long. Thank God."
