DRC Radio & TV

After we had our first national TV broadcast it became very clear that the number of people who wanted to hear our testimonies and learn the Word was too much to handle with one-on-one visits. So we organized a seminar that was going to be on the topic of faith and we were going to share some testimonies of how Jesus did incredible miracles through witnessing and through being faithful to just listen to His voice. There were about 300 people who attended that seminar. Towards the end we asked that every person who wanted to get a personal prayer would

Workshops for Architects

We met a group that works together in a company for Architecture/Engineering. The director of the company is the director and professor at the Architect University. We met them on our first visit to Addis and kept in touch. This time around, they asked us to have workshops with them in the office to teach them how to personally hear from the Lord, and how to witness, and use their company as a tool to reach others. Over the month we were there, many of them had started to hear from the Lord and were witnessing to their family,

Real Diamonds

Photo: Sharon and Priya in Lubango - Angola after giving a class at a local school. We got a ride with someone who works for a diamond company here, we started talking about the stones and Jesus told us to say, "The real diamonds of this country are the people, and what you invest in their lives lasts forever!" We talked with him about Heaven and the things that last forever, and he prayed with us to ask Jesus to come into his heart. When we met him again he told us about how he had

Teaching at High School

We went to the south of Angola for one week to visit a family Sharon had known from the last trip. He had organized for us to go to the high school where he teaches "Bible knowledge" and gave us his teaching slot. For the whole time we were in Lubango, we went to the school everyday, and talked with 3-4 classes daily. One of the classes that they asked us to talk with was a group of "troubled" students. Many of these students, because of the war, had to start school late, and most of them

Who will teach me?

As soon as we arrived we started the daily radio broadcasts and television shows. We talked about lots of different topics, and usually the questions that would come up from people--since it was live--were able to engender new topics and that really related to and benefited the situation of the Congolese people at the time. I got a few SMSs from one girl in particular. We would get a lot of SMSs daily, but this one girl kept SMSing us again and again. So finally I arranged to meet her at the radio station after the show. When

Anger Management

When we started organizing the seminar, Jesus told us to ask the younger brother of our host and some of his friends to participate by doing a little action skit to make the seminar more lively. I had met a few of his friends. Two of them were Christians and they also wanted to learn how they could share their faith with others around them. But one in particular was always very distant in the beginning and he didn't really want to talk to us. One day he came up to me and he said, "Look, I'd like to

Let them through!

We arrived midday in Lubumbashi after a 14hr flight. We arrived a bit earlier than the scheduled arrival time so our friend was not there yet to pick us up. We had to go through customs on our own which usually is a very complicated ordeal as in the DRC they have special legal representatives in the airport that need to take your paperwork through to ensure you don’t get hassled. We prayed as we presented our papers and they asked us a few questions sternly like what we were doing here and what address were we staying

A simple prayer

We were sitting on the steps in Mandela Square, Johannesburg, one evening checking email online when I noticed a Chinese-looking young man sitting on the bottom of the steps. Seeing as I didn’t have much to do, as my friend was on the computer, I walked over and sat down by him and we started chatting. He had been living in South Africa for quite some time already & was just waiting for his girlfriend. He didn’t believe in God, and didn’t think there was any afterlife either. Just before he got up to leave, I asked him

Police hear His Voice

While waiting for a few of our team to come a group of about five or six policemen guarding a building approached us and started asking, “Who are you? What are you doing?” We told them that we were missionaries and we came here to tell people about how much Jesus loved them and how they could have a personal connection with Him. We gave them some literature and they started reading them intently. One of the youngest policemen walked up to me and said, “Look, I know Jesus and I love Him, but I don’t know if He

Being Faithful

Upon arrival in Kigali, while waiting for our luggage, we struck up a conversation with a woman. After talking for a couple of minutes about our work, etc., she said goodbye and wished us a nice stay in Rwanda. Just as she started to walk away I heard Jesus say, “Pray for her!” I ran up to her and asked if I could say a small prayer for her. She was shocked but thankful and asked why I had done that. I asked her if she knew whether she was going to Heaven after this life, and she told us she

Flashflood Angola

It was our first day out in Angola, we had won lots of souls and were getting to know the city. As the day ended we noticed the clouds gathering and an ominous rumble. The Lord told Miguel and I to immediately get out of there. We asked how, and He said, “Hitch a lift!” So we stuck out our thumbs, and as soon as we had done so, a big car pulled up for us. The man inside the car motioned for us to step in quick because it was about to rain, and offered to drive us

General Onboard

While we were in Congo we also had a lot of miraculous protection, because there was a lot of discord between the army and the people. We were staying 150km outside of Lubumbashi, the main town in that area of eastern Congo. One day when we were on our way into Lubumbashi, the army was raiding one of the villages and putting everything to the ground, burning the huts and everyone was out on the street. The people were very angry. There were crowds and the first people they usually target in those kinds of situations were foreigners.

Congo Businessman

There were also a lot of young people who were very motivated by the things that we were sharing on television. One man in particular, a young businessman, came to meet me after one of the broadcasts and said, “You know, I usually never watch my television while I’m in my office. But for some reason I felt prompted to turn the television on, and there was your broadcast. One of the quotes that you shared, it really hit home in my heart and mind and I knew that I just needed to close up my office and come and
