  • Churches attacked in Egypt

    15 August 2013

    As I write these words, our St. Saviour's Anglican Church in Suez is under heavy attack from those who support former President Mursi. They are throwing stones and Molotov cocktails at the church and have destroyed the car of Rev. Ehab Ayoub, the priest-in-charge of St. Saviour's Church. I am also aware that there are attacks on other Orthodox churches in Menyia and Suhag in Upper Egypt (see photo), as well as a Catholic church in Suez. Some police stations are also under attack in different parts of Egypt. Please pray and ask others to pray for this inflammable situation in Egypt. more»

    The road outside our gate is just horrible. It was wrecked by trucks and then the authorities dug it up for sealing but the budget ran out and so it was just left. With the coming of the rains it became a whole series of muddy pools. Our enterprising staff dug it up a bit more to make a high path on one side so that pedestrians, cyclists and motorbikes can get past without going through the mud – provided they don't veer off the high path. link»

  • Request for guitars and/or guitar strings

    18 March 2013

    Music and singing is at the very heart of Christians, especially those in the Pacific. And so when I go to Samoa next month I will take a guitar and lots of spare strings. I like to leave both strings and guitar with a local church. Does anyone if they have a guitar hiding in the cupboard or under the bed unused? If so, would you kindly donate it to Anglican Missions so I can take it over there? Do you have lots of guitar strings which you have accumulated over the years? I would love to take them as well. These gifts are so so appreciated by the local church musicians. I thank you in anticipation! - Mike (PS I need them by April 2nd) more»

    "Egypt is like a patient recovering from a surgery. The body is still struggling to survive. We will have to wait and see what happens. Right now there is no clear vision or road map for the future. The Muslim Brotherhood spoke about a big project called “Revival” but no one knows this project, what are the implications, the goals, the aims, etc… It is very cloudy at the moment. But, however, we should say, that we have hope because we are in the hands of the Lord and He is in charge and He is in control." link»

  • Creative signwriting – a peek at life through signs and billboards

    26 September 2012

    “After the rather “heavy” content of the previous blog post, it is time to lighten up a bit and share with you some amusing signs I have come across since coming to Cambodia. Most of them feature some rather “creative” English, shown here for your amusement, with no intention of being derogoratory. I probably frequently use equally “creative” Khmer and the locals are very patient and long-suffering with me! So, please fasten your seat belt, ensure your cellphone is turned off or in flight mode, your seat is upright and your tray table is stowed, – and prepare to take off – to Phnom Penh, Battambang and Siem Reap…. for a unique look at aspects of Khmer life portrayed through interesting signs I have seen while out and about in these places.” link»

  • September 2013 Appeal for Anglican Missions

    25 September 2013

    The challenges our church has faced over the last year has resulted in a large shortfall in money received vs. money pledged to our partners overseas. Although the giving is down, the Anglican Missions Board made a promise to our partners, and so has made a commitment, in faith, to meet our pledged support to them in 2013. But unless we can raise an extra $60,000 by the end of the year, we will need to reduce our commitment to each of our partners by between 5 to 10 percent next year. That's a lot of mission that can't happen any more. Can you help us to continue overseas mission by donating today? link»
