New and creative ways to start mission churches

Mission Team Plantings: Because we have not been able to send full mission teams, different regions of the Singapore church have adopted certain key cities in Malaysia. Every few months, Christians from Singapore and Malaysia take leave and go to their adopted city and evangelise, hold services and do bible studies with those who are open. One such city is Kuching, in East Malaysia. So far, the Christians have flown there 5- 6 times over the past 18 months. They even had their regional leaders retreat there so that more people could help evangelise the city.

Church Growing in Muslim Mombasa, Kenya

Notes from Nairobi, Kenya

Steve Mukenya reports that before you lose hope on a given day, then think about Ken from Nairobi.  He studied the Bible for 5 years and was recently baptized into Christ. Amen.  He also reports that the church has been having regional Women's Days recently and that many women have been baptized.  Pray for the many women who are currently studying the Bible as a result.
