The table is ready for you.

Come, Come.  The table is ready,  Prepared just for you.  I say มา มา (come)   Sticky rice, som dtam and chicken.  All your favourites,   Because I know you.  I created you. I love you.    So leave your rice fields.  Do not stop at the temples,  Or pause before the monks.  Come young and old.   Bring your family and friends.  Come out of the heat,  Find shelter and peace in my name.  I am the God of all.   Come, […]

For the bad kids, the blacklisted, and burdensome.

“You are invited!” He said. The punctured reply – “No thanks, I have better offers.”           The housing market is ripe                     and I’ve got to get ahead.           Business is unceasing                    and the ambitious never […]

"I sense God is asking us to get out of the way!"

Much has been preached, spoken, and written of the Great Commission in Matthew 28. “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit…” This principle is further underscored by another ‘great commissioning’ of Jesus’ followers in Acts 1. “… you will […]

Te Āhuru Wairua

We live in an age where, to paraphrase The Teacher, “…of making many leadership books, there is no end” (Ecclesiastes 12:12). In the Christian world, as in the commercial world, leadership is a much sought-after art. There is no doubt that the world needs more great leaders. We have too many bad leaders. Every leadership […]

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 […]

A conversation with Joel & Lizzie.

"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."
