Latin America News: The coronavirus has arrived

Just over a week ago, Latin America confirmed its first case of the coronavirus in Brazil from a man who had traveled to the Lombardy region of northern Italy. Since then, Mexico, Ecuador, Dominican Republic, Guadeloupe, Argentine, and Chile also confirmed cases of the virus. The arrival of COVID-19 in Latin America is especially worrisome for vulnerable Venezuela, whose millions live in abject poverty and with a severely lacking healthcare system.  The virus has sparked an exorbitant price increase and demand for disinfecting products and masks.

One in Three Venezuelans Face Hunger

By: Courtney Mathos A nationwide study done in Venezuela shows that one-third of the population is facing food insecurity, living mostly off of tubers (a root plant) and beans. This is not because food cannot be found, but because people cannot afford it. Because of this, people have reported reducing the amount of quality food they eat, decreasing meal portions, receiving food as payment for work, and selling family assets to pay for food. The result of the study shows just how bad the economic, social, and political state of the country is getting. While people are unable to pay...

Prayer Leader Stabbed at London Mosque

A 70 year old leader at a central London mosque was stabbed by one of the men attending prayers. Fortunately, doctors are sure that the injuries sustained by the victim are not life-threatening, and the police have the other man in custody.  At a time like this, we ask how something like this could happen. Why would anyone go into a religious place and stab someone? It simply boils down to this: religion alone cannot bring peace to someone’s soul. This violence and hatred flow out of sin and degradation and only knowing Jesus Christ in salvation can change that....

Asia News: India Now the 5th Largest Economy

By Missionary to India Jeff Brown According to IMF’s October World Economic Outlook, India is now the fifth-largest economy in the world. In the past year, it has jumped over both France and the United Kingdom in total GDP (Gross Domestic Product.)  While this is an impressive accomplishment for a country that many people would still consider to be a third world country, India’s GDP per capita is USD 2,170. To put that in perspective, the US is USD 62,794. India’s economy is growing, but it doesn’t mean the average Indian person is necessarily rich. In fact, according to CNBC, India has...

Misconceptions Christians portray about Muslims

Misconceptions Christians Portray about Muslims Many times Christians have misconceptions about Muslims. My question to you is when you first hear the word Muslim what comes to mind? Those thoughts would be your conceptions and ideas about Muslims, but today I would like to clear up common misconceptions about Islam and Muslims. All Muslims are terrorists— This is a very common misconception. The truth is not all Muslims are terrorists. Actually very few would be considered a terrorist. They are a minority that take the spotlight and so people end up assuming all Muslims are terrorists. I have many Muslim...

The Harvest Is Plenteous

When I was younger, I can remember that one of the funnest things that we did as a family, was plant a garden. I know, only a country boy would say something like, but it was really a fun time with my family. We actually had competitions to see who could have the best garden and who would have the best results. We would start early, preparing the ground and then plant the seeds in rows for each vegetable. As the small plants would grow, I would remove the weeds that if not taken out, could hinder the growth of...

Why Europe?

In Mark 16:15, Jesus told His disciples to, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Every place in the world and every person in the world needs to hear the gospel message. That includes the continent of Europe. This past January, Sam Quinn, Micah Rastelli, and I taught a session called “Why Europe?” Here are some of the reasons we put together for why young people should consider giving their lives to help share the gospel in Europe. 1. Because Europe is the 3rd most populous continent in the world with about 750 million...

Latin America News: “I have no interest in going there with a Bible in hand.”

By: Courtney Mathos As South America’s largest country, Brazil has 305 different tribes, with nearly 100 having no contact with the outside world. President Jair Bolsonaro appointed former New Tribes missionary, Ricardo Lopes Dias, to protect these isolated tribes, amid concerns about the future of these indigenous communities. Many people believe that these tribes are under attack from the President, who has stated that having land set aside for indigenous tribes restricts Brazil’s economic growth. The current tug-of-war is centered on the potential economic gain that can be won from claiming and developing tribal land versus the cultural preservation of...

Your Reasonable Service

-Missionary Tracy Paver “Your reasonable service.” I stared at those three words in my Bible, overcome by their meaning. I was at a missions camp in the mountains of Tennessee. I had just graduated from nursing school the month before and figured this camp would be a welcome hiatus before I dove back into the world of nursing, NCLEX-RN exam preparation, and job interviews. But after the first camp service, I knew this wasn’t going to be the low-stakes, relaxing camp I’d imagined. A missionary preached on Romans 12:1 and challenged us to surrender to missions, to serve Jesus with...

“What Are You Going to DO About That?”

-Missionary Robert Becker When I surrendered to missions, Latin America was not on my radar at all. I had my own plans, actually, but in 2017, my wife and I took a missions trip to Peru with our pastor. While there, he showed us around the ministry in Arequipa, Peru. The Lord started speaking to me about considering South America, but I still told Him that I had my own plans about where I wanted to go.  In January 2018, my wife and I were given the opportunity to spend six months in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with missionary Patrick Henry....

There really is life after death

Herbert Kane well summarized: The Bible clearly teaches that there are two destinies open to man. One involves everlasting happiness in the presence of God and the holy angels (Lk 15:10; Rev 22:3–5; 1 Thess 4:17), the other involves everlasting misery in the company of the devil and his angels (Mt 25:41). The New Testament speaks of two gates—one strait and the other wide; two ways—one broad and the other narrow; two destinies—one life and the other destruction (Mt 7:13–14). In the day of judgment the sheep will be separated from the goats (Mt 25:31–46), and the wheat from the...

Souls of Honduras

I was saved by faith alone and not by any work or merit. Christ did all the work for me. Soon after that, I told my pastor I wanted to be a missionary; but after my parent’s divorce, I lost interest in serving God. However, when I was 15, I surrendered my life to do whatever God called me to do. I graduated from Pensacola Christian College with a...

Asia News: Coronavirus Causing Economies to Struggle

Japan, Germany, and other economies predict tough times ahead because of the coronavirus according to an article by the Wall Street Journal. Because of over half the population of China currently under some sort of quarantine to help control the coronavirus, Chinese companies are not able to produce components needed by major companies such as Nissan, Apple, and many others. This in turn will cause a slow down in production and sells which will impact the entire economy.  Also, many Asian countries gather much revenue from Chinese tourists. With all the travel bans in place because of the coronavirus, these...

Awake to Righteousness

-Missionary Lauren Grant “Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame,” (1 Corinthians 15:34).Although I grew up in a Christian family and was saved at a young age, it was many years later that I first became exposed to missions.
