  • Eighty-eight Souls Lost in the Vast Pacific Ocean

    By: Niko Sopepa May 10, 2018

    The churches in the Pacific are standing beside the people of Kiribati (an island nation in the northern Pacific, south of Hawaii) in a very trying and painful moment in their maritime history. On January 18 the ferry MV Butiraoi (pronounce pushy-rah-o-ee) left the island of Nonouti (pronounce nor- nor –oush-ee) for the capital of Kiribati Tarawa. The ferry was carrying 72 adults, 13 high school students, and 10 elementary school children. None of the children survived the ordeal.

    By: Ricardo Mayol May 10, 2018

    La Red Continental Cristiana por la Paz (RECONPAZ), desde y con el Concejo Ecuménico Cristiano de Guatemala, por la Paz, inició un camino, determinó un paso y encaminó un proceso con juventudes; y éstas han encontrado y reconocido unas en las otras, y han dicho seamos red, extendamos malla, y atrapemos sueños, y tejámoslos; sueños valientes que enfrenten las pesadillas de una violencia que asesina, saquea y discrimina. Dijeron seamos reconpaz.


  • Resilience from Within

    By: Jeffrey Mensendiek May 10, 2018

    I have completed four years at Kwansei Gakuin University (KG) in Kobe. It’s a rather large institution (23,000 students) established by Methodist missionaries in 1889. I had two roles. First, I was chaplain of the Center for Religious Activities where I coordinated programs with other chaplains; events, lectures, worship services, work camps, Christmas events, newsletters, and various other programs that help to enrich the learning environment for the students, and at the same time educate about the Christian values and...Read more...

  • We are not alone

    By: Martha Mensendiek May 10, 2018

    Dear Friends,

    I want to share with you some news from the Bazaar Café in Kyoto. (The Bazaar Café is our church’s coffee house ministry.) Among the many programs we have going on at the Café, last year we started what is called “Shaba Café.”  “Shaba” refers to the “outside world” as opposed to the world inside prison.


  • Juntos en el Camino / Together on the Road

    By: Amelia Casillas May 10, 2018

    Cuando nos acercamos a los Evangelios, nos encontramos con Jesús, que nos modela nuevos estilos y formas de cuidar y acompañar a la gente y sus comunidades. Aprendemos a como él caminaba entre los necesitados, les miraba, les tocaba, les escuchaba y les trataba con dignidad, amor y actos de justicia. Es desde esta perspectiva que Ministerios Globales  ha llegado y acompañado al pueblo paraguayo. Valorando su gente, respetando su historia y costumbres, y ofreciéndole apoyo de manera integrar, sirviendo...Read more...

    By: Victor Makari May 09, 2018

    Street and tree decorations stayed up in our town until mid-February, insuring that the spirit of the Feast of the Nativity continued for Christians celebrating Christmas according to the Gregorian, Coptic and Ethiopian, Byzantine, and Armenian calendars!


  • Faith in Service

    By: Tom Liddle May 09, 2018

    It’s 4:00 AM on a Sunday morning and Pastor Rojerio is waiting for a bus in the darkness beside a dirt road.  He is on his way to the congregation where he has been assigned.  Because he is committed he’ll get on the bus sometime before 5:00 and arrive at the small congregation a couple hours later.  There, he’ll lead a simple service, following which he’ll wait for another bus to return to Lospalos, getting home by late afternoon.
