“We Cannot Say Good Bye…”

….said a Nepalese leader in closing… “We Feel MTM Will Come Here Again.” The assembly of saints in worship and fellowship is such a delightful experience.  Barriers of language and culture largely fade into the background when gladsome hands warmly clasp those of fellow-believers, when their heart-felt expressions of greeting are exchanged, and their mingled…

WHY, OH WHY?

Phrases like, “we have never heard teaching like this before”, “we are learning so much”, and “saying thanks is not enough” are still ringing in my ears.  Those were the words of 2 young men, James and Silas (not real names) aged 22 and 24 years. They were 2 of the 20 faithful attendees at…
