To kick the journey off, the team took a scenic and adventurous 1.5 hour ferry ride up river to a small barangay of 64 houses. They were the first westerners to visit in over a year. Lots of healings of pain, fevers and eye problems, as well as salvations took place as the team went door to door distributing rice and water filters and praying for the needs of the people.  An outdoor meeting followed with nearly every person (about 100) accepting Jesus! Steve reports of a man born hearing impaired who was totally healed (including his blurry vision) without even receiving prayer. He ran to get his mostly blind father who was also totally healed!   Read More

(Gen 18:1-14) One of the most enigmatic episodes in the life of Abraham is his encounter with three men who approach his tent. They are variously referred to as men, angels and the Lord. While much has been written about their identity, what really stands out to me in this encounter is how the Lord calls Abraham to decide if he really trusts Him.  Read More

This has been an incredibly exciting week for Impact Nations and our partner, DD, who oversees Centre Vie Orphanage in St. Marc, Haiti.  Over 6 months ago, we began working on a project to get a large shipment of food (donated by The Ontario Gleaners) from Canada to Haiti. This past week, our efforts were rewarded with the food shipment being received by DD.  This would NOT have been possible without Isaiah 58 donations which paid for the transport of the donated food.   Read More

I have been thinking about all that is going on right now in the Impact world. This morning I received pictures of the new piggery in Kalonga. The roof was completed just today. Now our Ugandan partners have doubled their capacity to raise and house pigs–-to about 70. Pigs are one of the most profitable ventures we have in Kalonga, helping to pay for food for orphans, teachers’ salaries, and starting new ventures for women-at-risk. Besides the piggery, a deep well is being dug right now. The water will be pumped up to a tank on a small tower which will provide drinking water, not only for the children at Hope and Care School, but will allow school and community gardens to be planted. This well is a huge step forward.  Read More

As we prepare to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus and His resurrection life and power in us, I am reminded of this testimony from last year’s Philippines Journey of Compassion. We were in our final barangay, giving out bags of rice and distributing water filters among the village that had been ravaged by two different typhoons. As we came to the door of one house, we could see a woman trying to come to us. She was barely moving, hobbling as she leaned heavily on the furniture. We told her not to come any farther, we would just come in ourselves. Before giving her a filter, it seemed obvious that we should pray for this poor woman. Ray asked her where she felt pain. She replied with a long list––her head, neck, back, hips, knees and feet. So Ray decided to start with her head pain. As she prayed, the woman began to smile and indicate with her hands that she felt something lifting off her. Then suddenly, she jumped up from the stool, raised her hands over her head and began to dance. I mean dance! All over the room she moved and kept saying it was all gone. We asked if she meant her head pain was gone. “No! All my pain is gone from everywhere!”  Read More
