Ka pai te mahi ō Cindy!

Seventeen years ago Cindy was asked to open a school, an English medium school in a church. This church is located in a poorer area of the city and good educational facilities were few and far between. Cindy is a very gifted teacher trainer and she saw this request as an opportunity to model what […]

"Is is Christmas today?", they asked.

I am a planner. I always have been and no doubt always will be. So it was no surprise that mid-way through November I had walked around to the local courier office to gather a parcel for Christmas. “Anna, where have you been? And what have you got?” were the calls of excitement as I […]

My kitchen is bigger than her whole house.

My kitchen is bigger than her whole house. My walls and floor gleam white and one entire corner of my lounge is well-tended, exotic jungle.   Her bed fills her entire room, save a 2-foot strip which allows space to get dressed and access the personal effects stored under the bed.  My apartment is flooded with […]

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 […]
