In 1843 the Primitive Methodist Conference established a General Missionary Committee to oversee the work of both home and overseas missionaries. Regulations concerning missionaries were agreed the following year but in the first instance any initiative lay with the circuits rather than the Connexion. It was not until January 1870 that missionaries were sent abroad by the Primitive Methodist Missionary Society, when the Revs. R. W. Burnett and Henry Roe, together with their wives, set sail for the island of Fernando Po. The Jubilee of the commencement of this work was celebrated by the Primitive Methodist Church in 1920, this medallion reflecting the Jubilee of the earlier formation of the General Missionary Committee. In 1892 a Missionary Jubilee effort was launched, the eventual outcome of which was the raising of just over £50,000 ...
Gordon B. Hinckley and Ormond S. Coulan during their missionary service in England, ca. 1933. Unlike American Protestant organizations, the Latter-day Saint Church did not consider evangelism as optional. Courtesy of Church History Library. Missionary training. Although most of the early luminaries of the Protestant foreign missionary enterprise were graduates of prestigious New England divinity schools and universities such as Yale, Princeton, and Williams, the majority of missionaries during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century had studied at lesser-known denominational colleges and Bible schools. Many were the product of the Student Volunteer Movement or like-minded groups eager to evangelize the world in this generation. Mission agencies continually received candidates from church-affiliated institutions of higher learning. By the early twentieth century, between 87 and 95 percent of Protestant missionaries received formal missionary training and religious education at these ...
Samaj Weekly)- Rakesh Sinha, RSS thinker and M.P. in a recently given interview to Dainki Jagran (Mid July 2021) demanded that time has come to launch the campaign Isai Missionary Bharat Chhodo (Christian missionaries leave India). As per him the missionaries are ruining Adivasi culture and are doing conversion work taking advantage of the provisions of freedom of religion. Earlier (May 22, 2018) in a tweet he had stated Do we need Missionaries? They constitute threat on our spiritual democracy. Niyogi Commission report (1956) exposed their real face but Nehruvians preserved them as essential vestige of colonialism. Either Quit India or form Indian Church vouching non proselytization.. Most of the accusations against missionaries are not only baseless and lack understanding of Christianity in India. Contrary to his assertion, missionaries are not a part of colonial legacy. Indian Christianity is very old and it begins in A.D. 52 with St Thomas coming to Malabar Coast and setting up the ...
On April 6 through 8, many members of the Cabrini family gathered at the University of Notre Dame for the conference Too Small a World: Catholic Sisters as Global Missionaries. With over 20 Missionary Sisters and lay collaborators in attendance, the spirit of Mother Cabrini, already woven through the theme, was alive throughout the sessions.. The program was held in honor of the centenary of Mother Cabrinis death. The study of missionary sisters embraces Cabrinis boundless ambition as well as the practical and cultural constraints that shaped the outcomes of her and others journeys. An international group of scholars gathered to investigate the transnational work and shifting identities of Catholic sisters as global missionaries, asking how the study of these border-crossing women, organized into multinational structures, can help all historians enter into the global history of Catholicism. The presentations and conversations kept alive the history while also ensuring we focused on the ...
The Xaverian Missionary Sisters (of Mary) were established in Parma, Italy, in 1945. The seeds of this foundation can be found in the prophetic insights of Saint Conforti. In the Xaverian Congregation I would like to start a Community of Sisters, for I consider it of great importance. (Conforti, in 1927). Celestine Healy Bottego, born in Glendale, Ohio on Dec. 20, 1895, and lived in Butte, Montana until her 14th birthday, expressed her consent to collaborate with Fr. James Spagnolo to start the community of sisters, in 1944 in Italy.. The missionary sisters draw inspiration from Mary, in the mystery of the Visitation and hold her to be the model of their interior spirit. Like Mary, they travel the world, that all people will know the love of God.. Fr. Spagnolo and Mother Bottego wished their community to be missionary. Today, the Missionaries of Mary - Xaverian Sisters - are present in Italy, Brazil, Mexico, United States, Sierra Leone, Cameroon, Chad, Congo, Japan, and Thailand. They are ...

Though un-learning our purpose, we now understand that our purpose is not to teach and baptize but to invite others come unto Christ. We now understand that this purpose entails far more than teaching and baptizing- it includes every act of service, every righteous example, every kind word, every sincere prayer for another, and every expression of faith.. Through un-learning our stewardship, we now understand that missionary work is a forever process and not limited in focus to non-members- we fulfill our missionary purpose anytime we help anyone draw closer to the Savior. We now understand that missionary work, Temple work, retention, or family instruction are all the same great work!. Through un-learning the definition of success, we now understand that we should not make our personal success contingent on how others use their agency. We now understand that success in missionary work is not the number of lessons taught or souls baptized- its in the effort itself.. Perhaps like Abinadi, we ...
I just attended a meeting where Dr. Carl Boonstra is the member of the church hosting the meeting. It was announced that Dr. Boonstra is donating his library, and all the pastors attending the meeting could take have as many of his books as they wanted. Because my husband and I are traveling in a motorhome, and he knows I love books…he instructed me that I could have one book. I went to the area, and I searched and searched for that perfect one book. I made my choice…and when I began reading it…I realized that I picked up a real jewel. The book is an old book entitled, Who Cares About the Missionary.. The following story is one of the stories that I just read. Although this is a sad missionary story…its an example of many churches today.. A young missionary went off to the Far East to minister. His home church supported him financially and promised to pray for him. He had kept them informed of his activities through letters and tapes, but unknown to the missionary, only the chairman of ...

The flight from Atlanta to Manchester, England was very long, but I sat next to Elder Griffiths, who is in my same mission, and we had some good talks the whole way when we werent sleeping. There were actually several missionaries on that flight, as opposed to the five I flew into Atlanta with from Vegas. I didnt get a good count, but there had to have been about 25 of us just coming from Atlanta to Manchester, including about 5 sisters. I am only aware that one of the sisters is in my mission. I am forgetting her name, but she is from Bullhead City and flew in with us from Vegas. I have met about six or seven guys going to Leeds in total. They are taking all the northern England missions this week, so only missionaries going to Scotland/Ireland, Leeds, Manchester and... something else (Birmingham?) report today. The missionaries who reported three weeks ago are already out of here as of Wednesday, so I missed seeing my friends Elders Tingey and Polo, both serving in London. I wont have any ...
Through that time in the 1970s his faith held and grew; he was a missionary during the worst times, an instrument to usher in the Kingdom to a war torn people .. Missionary Yohannes graduated from the largest Lutheran seminary in Africa, in Tanzania. He spread the good news of Jesus throughout Africa as a missionary broadcasting over the radio in Nairobi, Kenya, and through mercy work. He began a ministry among immigrants arriving in Kenya fleeing war and famine, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked. An instrument to usher in the Kingdom of God. Zerit was hallowing Gods name as he made Gods kingdom real in that place and time. The African Christians hallowed the name of God when they developed programs to aid victims of HIV, hunger and poverty: the churchs role as a servant of the people made lasting impressions in Tanzania and in Eritrea. Then, A door opened for Zerit and his family to go to Canada, where he began ministry to African immigrants in Toronto. He also attended Concordia ...

Thinking back, it seems to me that missionaries of my fathers generation had a particularly clear view of the world. They saw it in the raw, in black and white, and full of all the social dilemmas and physical disasters among peoples to whom they ministered and with whom they dwelt so long and intimately. They could not help observe at close hand the local tyranny and corruption that our government often embraces or ignores in those countries. William Hughlett, Methodist medical missionary to the Congo, was an example of that generation who came often to our home and impressed me deeply. Recognizing the social origins of Western diseases, he observed their absence under lifestyles of the natives compared to those of American and European colonials. For example, he told me on a visit to Tulane when I was a medical student that he had seen not a single case among natives, during more than 20 years missionary practice in Africa, of appendicitis, tonsillitis, or heart attack. It was he who first ...

The fireside last night was so inspiring. There was a panel of ward members who had either been referrals themselves or who had provided referrals that became members of their ward. I was soooo touched by their stories and was given so much courage to keep working hard as a missionary, and then to be more like them when I go home and keep doing missionary work for the rest of my life! It was really special because He Jiemei (who just got baptized a month ago) and her daughter were on the panel, so I got to hear all the inside stories of how they felt throughout the conversion process. I just cant believe the Lords work in each of their lives to prepare them, and then to send us Sisters to this ward just at the right time! I love them both so much, and theyre both so faithful! Another one of my favorite parts was hearing Zhuang Jiemeis testimony. Shes what we call the Sister Missionaries Best Friend because she is willing to go with us to teach whenever we need someone, and she loves to ...

From 1937 until 1997, Covenant World Missions efforts in Africa meant working in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In 1997, civil war resulted in the evacuation of all Covenant missionaries. Evacuations due to civil war or unrest occurred in 1960, 1964, 1991, and 1997. In 2000, as peace returned to the area, Covenant missionaries started to make visits. After this time of visits, several missionaries lived there for extended periods, working with CEUM ministries, Paul Carlson Partnership project management, and mission trips. Between 2006 and the summer of 2010, there was no resident missionary presence, but missionaries met regularly with CEUM leaders and partnership continued with the Covenant Church of Congo. Since 2010, the CEUM has resident Covenant missionaries to work alongside the CEUMs gifted church leadership.. ...
International travel always comes with a degree of risk, but mission trips can require additional preparation for hazards unique to humanitarian work, such as exposure to stress-causing ethical challenges and limited availability of food, water, lodging, transportation, or medical care. Here are five reasons to consider missionary medical insurance for your mission trip abroad: 1. Mission travel often leads volunteers to developing countries where there is increased risk of illness. Individuals who travel to a less developed country for up to 90 days have a 60% - 70% chance of illness. Theyre also at higher risk of diseases due to contaminated food and water. 2. Missionaries may face increased risk of accidents, injuries, and death. Certain types of mission work can require long hours in adverse conditions, which can result in injury. Additionally, the risk of vehicle-related accidents and injuries is higher in developing countries with poorly maintained vehicles and infrastructure.. 3. ...
I thought I would post one of Juliannes most recent entries from her online journal. I appreciate her honesty, and thought it was a great read as we get to look inside the life of a missionary. Lets continue to pray for Julianne as she serves the Lord at Calvary Chapel Entebbe, Uganda.. Not the Least Sign of a Feather. Posted on December 1, 2014. I have been reading the biography of Amy Carmichael by Elisabeth Elliot, A Chance to Die. Her life is such a testimony of real life before the Lord. She saw things clearly as they were. She saw herself as she was and she never tried to soften the truth. At the beginning of her mission work, she served in Japan. And through that year she realized something very clearly.. She was finding at firsthand that missionaries are not set apart from the rest of the human race, not purer, nobler, higher. Wings are an illusive fancy. Some may possess them, but they are not very visible, and as for me, there isnt the least sign of a feather. Dont imagine that ...

The description of Gods calling Paul and Barnabas to become missionaries provides important principles for discerning a missionary call.
I entered the MTC today with lots of advice from my mom and dad at what my dad called My Last Meal. Olive Garden soup and salad. Yum, Yum! As I was set apart last night, President Monroe gave me a beautiful blessing. I had vowed there would be no tears but as we drove in with all the missionaries waving... well.... sometimes the tears get the best of you. It was a beautiful sunny day. So as my favorite Little Men would put it. Hi Ho, Hi Ho, Its off to Missionary Work I Go. My official name now-Sister Anderson ...
Well, seeing my companion desperately trying to stay awake reminded me of Christs invitation, Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. That sight really made me turn to my Savior today. Even as a missionary, we are CONSISTENTLY relying on Jesus Christ for constant support and strength. Seeing my companion in his desperate fight to remain faithful this morning, made me think of how many people out there are also desperately trying to keep the faith and fight the good fight as Paul would have put it. This world we live in is a CRAZY place... We as missionaries dont watch tv or keep up with the news, but even just BEING around other people, we hear bits and pieces of what is going on in the world. This place we live in seems to be getting worse and worse... Changing constantly for the worse. But one thing that doesnt change, is our Savior Jesus Christ. He is ALWAYS inviting us to repent, and come unto Him, so He can heal ALL our wounds and strengthen ...
Woodberry already had historical proof that missionaries had educated women and the poor, promoted widespread printing, led nationalist movements that empowered ordinary citizens, and fueled other key elements of democracy. Now the statistics were backing it up: Missionaries werent just part of the picture. They were central to it.. The results were so strong, they made me nervous, says Woodberry. I expected an effect, but I had not expected it to be that large or powerful. I thought, I better make sure this is real. I better be very careful.. Determined to be his own greatest skeptic, Woodberry started measuring alternative theories using a technique called two-stage least-squares instrumental variable analysis. With any statistical work, he knew, it was easy to mistake correlation for causation. There is a link, for example, between eating oatmeal and getting cancer. But that doesnt mean that if you eat too many Quaker Oats, youre doomed. It turns out that elderly people, who have a ...

Dear Brother Bishops, It is a great joy for me to meet this evening with you, the pastors of the Catholic Church in Benin. I thank the President of the Episcopal Conference of Benin, Archbishop Antoine Ganyé, for the fraternal words of greeting which he offered in your name. With you, I am happy to give thanks to the Lord for the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of the beginning of the evangelization of your country. To be exact, it was on the 18th of April 1861 that the first missionaries of the Society of the African Missions disembarked at Ouidah, thus beginning a new page in the proclamation of the Gospel in West Africa. To all the missionaries, bishops, priests, men and women religious, and lay people who have come from their own homeland or whose origins are in this country, who have laboured since that time and up to our own day, the Church is particularly grateful. They have generously given their lives, at times in a heroic manner, so that the love of God may be proclaimed to all. ...

My companion said something this week that made me laugh. We got in a car accident, (we were getting stuff out of the back seat when a lady just backed into us) and luckily no one was hurt. We were talking about how the Lord really protects his missionaries, and she goes, yeah missionaries survive hurricanes, earthquakes, car crashes, and all sorts of natural disasters. We are like cockroaches! Haha it made us both laugh really hard. But it also made me really think. We are so lucky, well I am so lucky, to be able to see the Lords hand in my life and all the tender mercies He has given me. And while on my mission I have been able to notice them a lot more. The Lord truly loves, protects, and blesses us ...

This article proposes an economic/political interpretation of two missionary Diaries of White Fathers drafted in Rwanda in the first decade of the last century. The events recorded in these documents aid the reader in understanding how the missions were, in that period, centers of power that interacted with the local environment in a manner which was relatively independent of a colonial administration that was still weak. As a result, while the missionaries learned and incorporated certain Rw...

Two missionary groups have ordered the evacuation of their non-essential personnel from the West African country of Liberia after a doctor and a missionary contracted the Ebola virus last week.
The seroprevalence and incidence of hepatitis A, B, C, and E virus infection were determined among North American missionaries (n = 328) serving in various geographic locations between 1967 and 1984. The mean age of subjects at entry into the study was 39.7 years (range 5-73 years); 65% were female: 89% had lived outside the United States before the study began. Seventy-eight percent of subjects served in sub-Saharan Africa during the study. At initial evaluation, 50.9% of the subjects had antibodies to hepatitis A virus (total anti-HAV), 8.5% to hepatitis B virus core antigen (total anti-HBc), 0.6% to hepatitis C virus (total anti-HCV by second- generation immunoblot assay), and 0% to hepatitis E virus (IgG anti-HEV). After an average period of service of 7.3 years (2,396 person-years total), 5.8% of the missionaries seroconverted to anti-HAV, 5.5% to anti-HBc, 0.6% to anti-HCV, and 0% to anti-HEV. This study indicates a relatively low risk of hepatitis C and E virus infection among ...

We finally made it to our destination! Early Tuesday morning we boarded two small Cessna airplanes for the last leg of our journey from Nairobi to the mission hospital we will be working at for the next month. The flight took us over the beautiful Rift Valley of Kenya. I (Paul) didnt see much of the scenery because I had my eyes closed the whole way! I do not like small planes! Our pilots (Matt and Jay) are men who have dedicated their lives to help fly missionaries in and out of remote locations, deliver food and aid, evacuate injured patients, etc… What an important (and often overlooked) role in advancing Gods Kingdom. We are thankful to the African Inland Mission air ministry. We enjoy a smooth landing (laugh)on a dirt strip (after we chased the animals away)!. Dr. Russ (a long term missionary surgeon and friend) met us at the air strip and drove us 35 minutes to the missionary compound-a 300 bed hospital with 5 busy operating rooms serving a large portion of western Kenya. Once we were ...
WM missionary, born at St. George s, Grenada, of mixed African, Caribbean and Scottish ancestry. His father was a Scottish sea captain and he was sent for six years to a boarding school in Glasgow. Back in Grenada, he entered on a commercial career and became actively involved in the local Wesleyan society. Encouraged by William Moister, in 1842 he was accepted as a candidate by the WM Missionary Society and served for two years in the Caribbean before accompanying Thomas Birch Freeman to West Africa to begin a long and successful ministry on the Gold Coast and the Ashanti Mission. He married a Ghanaian wife, a member of the Fante Akam royal family. In 1872 he was appointed District Chairman and General Suprintendent of the Mission, but died on 11 October 1873, debilitated by fever.

In 1882 he came to England to train as a missionary, but ...

For those of you who keep asking what a menu might look like... We tried this restaurant one day. It doesnt look like a place to eat from the outside but is quite cozy inside. We enjoyed the Italian music that was playing in the background. It is called the Caribbean Fusion Restaurant. (one of Elder Gundersons favorite places to eat.) Notice the Escoveitched Fish on the menu. Escoveitch---comes from escabeche, Spanish for pickled. All the food on the menu was very spicy. I was very glad for the assistants, who finished off my hot rice...wasnt hot for them but was for me. Leones are 4000 to $1.00. For instance, the Whole Jerk Fish cost $5 or Le 20,000 ...
Shortly after assuming the helm at Ashland Health Center, Anderson arranged a meeting with two physician faculty members from the Wichita-based Via Christi Family Medicine Residency to get advice about the hospitals most pressing need: How to recruit physicians to a town of 900 residents that is an hours drive to the closest Walmart.. They told Anderson to look for physicians who are committed to international medical missions. Physicians who are willing to practice medicine in a mud hut in Africa dont put a lot of value on having a nearby Nordstroms or fancy restaurants; they are motivated by the opportunity to serve. To recruit mission-driven physicians, Ashland Health Center needed to offer a good quality of life in rural America and significant time off-up to eight weeks a year-that clinicians could use to work in a developing country.. The two faculty physicians then challenged Anderson to prove that he was committed to mission-focused health care by going to Africa himself. Just ...
On Tuesday, last week as Catholics shuffled around the small Fr. Simeon Lourdel memorial church at the remote landing site of Kigungu to pay tribute to these fathers of Catholicism in Uganda, you could see there was a lot to celebrate the missionaries for. The forefathers mean a lot to Catholicism in Uganda.. Much as a heavy downpour earlier on threatened to ruin the occasion, none of the faithful wanted to be derailed. They kept on, trekking to the venue, singing, and praising the two forefathers of Catholicism in Uganda. They couldnt stutter in the celebrations of such a remarkable day, not for anything.. The Archbishop of Kampala, Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga, who led the prayers, said: Without the missionaries we wouldnt have Christianity in Uganda; we wouldnt have the Uganda Martyrs. They are our forefathers ...

TRAVESTY is an anthropologists personal story of working with foreign aid agencies and discovering that fraud, greed, corruption, apathy, and political agendas permeate the industry. It is a story of failed agricultural, health and credit projects; violent struggles for control over foreign aid; corrupt orphanage owners, pastors, and missionaries; the nepotistic manipulation of research funds; economically counterproductive food aid distribution programs that undermine the Haitian agricultural economy; disastrous social engineering by foreign governments, international financial and development organizations--such as the World Bank and USAID-- and the multinational corporate charities that have sprung up in their service, CARE International, Catholic Relief Services, World Vision, and the dozens of other massive charities that have programs spread across the globe, moving in response not only to disasters and need, but political agendas and economic opportunity.

The chronological Bible lessons are continuing among the Gadang people in the Philippines, three times a week! They have covered the stories from Creation to Moses over the past month and a half and this week have been covering the lesson on the Law.. Please continue to pray for open eyes and hearts. They have a handful of regular attendees who have not missed many lessons and are tracking right along with them - paying close attention, taking photos of the power point slides with smartphones and reading the passages of Scripture together out loud as one person reads into the microphone.. It is encouraging for the missionary team to see them attending and to hear them interacting with what they hear. Please continue to pray for the Lord to work in their hearts and for their salvation.. Pray for others who have attended once or twice or not at all - that they would be impacted by those who hear and talk about it and by the children who are bringing the news about each lesson back to their ...
After the meeting, President asked if we would mind waiting for a bit. There was a young man that he needed to talk to, and it should only take a short while. The young man was C.D. and he was trying to make a decision about baptism. The short while became a long while, so Sister Ford took us out to find some dinner. She said, with her lovely English accent, Follow me-I know a short-cut. I decided I had come to Albania to follow her, and follow her I did! She disappeared into a narrow space between the buildings. It was dark outside by then, and super dark in the narrow passageway that she was leading me through. She was laughing, and we laughed too. Fearless, she is. We came out on the main street in just a minute, and we caught up to the other couple missionaries who were out getting a bite to eat also. We were introduced to the crepe-a basic food group in Albania. My favorite is white chocolate with bananas and cookie crumbs, but well talk about that later. We struck up a conversation with ...

I am so excited to be a part of this collab! As you all know Haiti is close to our heart as a family. The latest updates that I have received from the Orphanage in Jeremie is that there may be some damage to the main houses foundation. The missionaries were set to leave at the beginning of Feb. but now will not be able to as the airpoerts and travel in general in Haiti is a mess. The orphanage is making it but food prices have more than doubled, food is scarce, and diesel fuel which runs their well pump has run out. We also received some very sad news.When the truck was sent to Port au Prince to try to collect the students at University there, it was learned that one of the students, Nadine, died in the earthquake. 3 of the other students were collected along with 67 other children who were originally from the Jeremie area who lost their parents in the earthquake. This brings the number of children in the orphanage to 125! A very difficult task when there are little resources to care for them ...

Karen was referring to the surgeons, nurses, and anesthesiologists from North America who volunteer with Samaritans Purse, donating their time and talents for 10 days. Though the time is short and their days are long, this is a medical mission each team member makes room for in their busy schedules.. Dr. Jim Wade, who recently retired from his practice in Abingdon, Virginia, was brought in three years ago as a consultant to help Samaritans Purse design the cleft lip surgery program. Hes made it a priority to come back every year.. Its always good to come back, its the most rewarding surgery Ive ever done, he said. This opens the door for ministry. Patients are willing to hear the message because what we have done for them adds credibility to what we are sharing.. Joining Dr. Wade was Dr. Thomas Boeve, an ear, nose, and throat surgeon. After serving as a full-time missionary for two years at Kijabe Hospital in Kenya, Dr. Boeve recently returned to the United States where he practices in ...

The first European visitors to Namibia were the Portuguese. Initially the coast of Namibia was largely ignored. Further exploratory voyages occurred during the 1600s, but these were based out of Dutch colonies in the Cape. The first white explorer to travel overland from the Cape across the Orange River to Namibia was a Dutch elephant hunter in 1750.. He was swiftly followed by a progression of traders, hunters and missionaries. The Cape colony government then decided to put the ports of Angra Pequena (the present day Luderitz) and Walvis Bay under their protection as they perceived a threat from British, American and French colonisers and obviously saw the value of these ports. The ubiquitous missions began to spring up around 1805 with stations established in Windhoek, Rehoboth and Keetmanshoop towards the middle of the century.. It was around this time that Britain began to take an interest in the more lucrative areas of Namibia and in 1867 the country annexed the guano islands off the ...

NEW ORLEANS, La., Oct 09, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) - The influence of Saint Frances Cabrini, the first American citizen Saint, and her Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart has been felt in New Orleans since 1892, when Mother Cabrini first arrived to help Italian immigrants. However, her work encompassed people from all sections and backgrounds of the city. Besides the daily work of helping the unfortunate, Saint Cabrini established two orphanages, the larger of which became Cabrini High School in 1959.. Mother Cabrinis commitment to helping all people in need was unrelenting. She founded 67 missions on three continents in 37 short years which included orphanages, schools and hospitals. Cabrini High School stands today as a testament to her vision: to educate the minds and hearts of the students. The schools award-winning college preparatory curriculum and staff encourages students of diverse races, creeds, nationalities, and socio-economic backgrounds to discover their God-given talents ...
The history of the Methodist Church of Togo goes back to British Methodist missionary work which began in the area in 1843. It is the first Christian church established in what is now Togo. The MCT defines its mission as bringing the human being to accept the Creator, respect the creation and discern in the other the image of the Lord Jesus Christ; to contribute to building a more just and humane society according to the example of the ministry of Christ; to safeguard the resources of the world recognizing the interdependence of peoples, societies and nations. The vision of the church is that of a more human world won for Jesus Christ, in peace and united in solidarity. The Methodist Church of Togo confesses one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit as witnessed in the historical creeds of the church and in the fundamental principles of the Reformation. The doctrines of the evangelical faith adhered to by the Methodist Church are based on the revelation as contained in the holy scriptures which are ...

The New Caledonian languages branched off from the other Oceanic languages after Melanesian people settled in New Caledonia around 3000 bc. The languages evolved under mostly isolated conditions until there was contact with Europeans in the late 18th century which created regular contact form the subsequent trading, migration and eventual colonization. Protestant and Roman Catholic missionaries arrived in New Caledonia in the 1840s and began efforts at conversion; most notably for the north province was Marist mission was set up just north of Pouebo, in Balade. The French took colonial possession of most of New Caledonia in 1853 and imposed forced labor, limitations on travel, and curfews which lead to Melanesian revolts that were a frequent occurrence until 1917. By 1860 the French had established their authority over the southern part of the mainland and implemented policies that significantly destabilized and altered the lives of Melanesians, including: the confiscation and dispossession of ...
Soon after their Khazar mission, came the invitation of the Moravian Prince Rostislav, who sought missionaries able to preach in the Slavonic vernacular (peoples) language, and thereby check German influence in Moravia - the Moravians wished a teacher who could instruct them and conduct Divine service in the Slavonic tongue. On account of their acquaintance with that language, Cyril and Methodius were chosen for their work. In preparation for it Cyril invented a new alphabet and, with the help of Methodius, translated the Gospels and the necessary liturgical books into that new South Slavonic language. They went to Moravia in 863, and laboured over the translations for four and a half years. The immediate success aroused the hostility of the German rulers and ecclesiastics. Cyril died in Rome, 4 Feb., 869. Methodius went to Constantinople and with the assistance of several priests he completed the translation of the Bible and ecclesiastical books into Slavonic. The enemies of Methodius did not ...
Tucson was probably first visited by Paleo-Indians, known to have been in southern Arizona about 12,000 years ago. Recent archaeological excavations near the Santa Cruz River have located a village site dating from 2100 BC.[10] The floodplain of the Santa Cruz River was extensively farmed during the Early Agricultural Period, circa 1200 BC to AD 150. These people constructed irrigation canals and grew corn, beans, and other crops while gathering wild plants and hunting. The Early Ceramic period occupation of Tucson saw the first extensive use of pottery vessels for cooking and storage. The groups designated as the Hohokam lived in the area from AD 600 to 1450 and are known for their vast irrigation canal systems and their red-on-brown pottery.[11][12]. Jesuit missionary Eusebio Francisco Kino visited the Santa Cruz River valley in 1692, and founded the Mission San Xavier del Bac in 1700 about 7 mi (11 km) upstream from the site of the settlement of Tucson. A separate Convento settlement was ...
Yeah, when I went to Japan for the first time as a missionary I felt like I didnt prepare myself well in terms of financial support, prayer support and this is what I learned is so important.

This missionary impulse helps account for Hamels particular devotion to Blessed Charles de Foucauld-the aristocratic army officer and explorer who, after a dissipated life, had a profound conversion, became a priest, and lived among the Tuareg people in southern Algeria. Foucauld was shot dead by Muslim bandits in 1916. Later in life, Hamel spoke often of the beheading in 1996, most likely by the Groupe Islamique Armé, of the Cistercian monks of Tibhirine in Algeria who were immortalized by the 2010 film Of Gods and Men.. That he might meet a similar fate didnt apparently cross Hamels mind. Yet he was deeply conscious of the power of evil and peoples capacity to inflict suffering on each other. Like most young Frenchmen in the 1950s, Hamel spent time as an army conscript in French Algeria. There he witnessed the sheer savagery of the Algerian War on more than one occasion. It left a deep impression on Hamel, especially after he narrowly missed being gunned down by Algerian ...
The history of Christianity in Korea is generally considered to start in the 17th century - much later than Confucianism or Buddhism - yet today, there are more believers of the Christian faith than any other organized religion in Korea. The history of the introduction of Christianity to Korea is unique in that it was initiated by Korean scholars who took an academic interest in Christianity as a teaching of Western civilization, rather than by Christian missionaries proselytizing in Korea. After the Qing invasions (1636-7), Joseon bureaucrats who had been sent to Qing China began to take interest in Western civilization and started to import and academically study Catholic literature from China. Though at first they were critical of the teachings, some Joseon scholars began to believe in the faith and established local Christian organizations. The Joseon king and government initially took a lenient stance on the religion because Jesuit teachings, which were introduced to Korea at that time, ...

The call echoed around the country: every village heard the news, and like soldiers in battle heeded the call to arm once again, she said.. In her report, which is published by Misean Cara, she describes how the schools are open and children line up every day to wash their hands, and have their temperatures taken before entering the classroom.. There is still a bucket of chlorine/water in every door in every classroom.. The Missionary Sisters of the Holy Rosary have been working with 380 families shattered by Ebola.. Most families have taken in orphans, often the children of their own siblings or relatives.. Thanks to funding from Ireland each family has received money to send the orphaned children, and their own to school.. By making it available to all the children in the caretakers home no child is left out due to a lack of support. This gesture has brought a sense of normality back into their lives, wrote Sr Bridget Lacey.. She gives the example of a young couple, Fatu and George, who ...
When Ecuador seceded from the Gran Colombia, Peru decided not to follow the treaty of Guayaquil of 1829 or the protocoled agreements made. Peru contested Ecuadors claims with the newly discovered Real Cedula of 1802, by which Peru claims the King of Spain had transferred these lands from the Viceroyalty of New Granada to the Viceroyalty of Peru. During colonial times this was to halt the ever-expanding Portuguese settlements into Spanish domains, which were left vacant and in disorder after the expulsion of Jesuit missionaries from their bases along the Amazon Basin. Ecuador countered by labeling the Cedula of 1802 an ecclesiastical instrument, which had nothing to do with political borders. Peru began its de facto occupation of disputed Amazonian territories, after it signed a secret 1851 peace treaty in favor of Brazil. This treaty disregarded Spanish rights that were confirmed during colonial times by a Spanish-Portuguese treaty over the Amazon regarding territories held by illegal ...

The Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labradors English School District (NLESD, which controls all but six schools in the province) has formally brought an end to the Operation Christmas Child (OCC) shoebox appeal operating in its schools, citing concerns over the homophobia and extreme religious views in Samaritans Purse, the charity which runs the scheme. Humanists UK, which for many years has drawn parents attention to issues around religious proselytising through OCC, has welcomed the news.. In October, Humanists UK urged its members to write to schools about the appeal, pointing out that many parents and teachers dont know that OCC uses families charitable donations as a missionary tool for converting people to Christianity. Humanists UK also promotes a list of ethical alternatives to the OCC scheme for parents and teachers who still want to engage children in charitable giving around the holiday season.. District trustees for NLESD voted at a public meeting in late November to ...

This is Litchi chinensis, 荔枝, the lychee, sometimes called a lychee nut although its not nut-like at all. Its more like a muscadine (tough skin, sweet juiciness) with a big seed in the middle. Its one of the best things in life.. As Im sure it was in the 1600s, when Michel Boym, a Polish Jesuit missionary, was studying them for his exhaustive work on Chinese botany. He also authored the first two dictionaries translating Chinese into European languages - Latin and French.. If you cant find them fresh, try em frozen or canned. Theyre great. The, uh, fruits, not the languages. This image is from the Biodiversity Heritage Library, via Scientific Illustration.. ...
Grace and Martins Wedding. In Tanzania the wedding process is both different and the same from the customs I know. The difference is the grooms family hosts the wedding. The same is that there is a ceremony and a celebration.. In the short time that I have been in Dar es Salaam I have discovered that many religions are active - very active. It would appear that missionaries from many religions have had an impact in the last couple of centuries on Tanzania. Some of the most prevalent are Islam, Christianity: (Catholic, Lutheran, Jehovah Witness, Protestant,) Judaism and many more. In addition, the indigenous tribal customs are very active. The Send Off comes from the tribal history. This wedding ceremony and celebration was a combination of many traditions.. It began with the religious ceremony at 2 pm. Martin, Grace and Todo are members of the Jehovah Witnesses. The religious ceremony took place in a very modern beautifully designed church on a large Jehovah Witnesses campus in Dar es Salaam. ...
My name is Clement Matorwmasen. Together with my wife I have co-founded Green Gold Social Enterprise. Since childhood I have always been a social and environmental activist and I was a youth leader in many activist groups. As a child I grew up in difficult circumstances when my parents abandoned me and I grew up at the homes of different foreign missionaries. As a teenager I re-established the contact with my family members and my tribe and I learned I was high up in the royal family lineage. I now have very strong ties to my tribe and I want to make a difference in not only their lives, but that of all Ghanaians. When I reconnected with my family, I was already running several not-for-profit projects trying to improve the living conditions in several poor communities, like organising finances for a community boreholes to improve access to clean drinking water. I was doing this alongside my teaching job as an IT-specialist at a tertiary institution. In 2007 my boss and mentor introduced me to ...
British explorer Samuel BAKER established the colony of Equatoria in 1870, in the name of the Ottoman Khedive of Egypt who claimed the territory. Headquartered in Gondokoro (near modern day Juba), Equatoria in theory composed most of what is now South Sudan. After being cut off from colonial administration during the Mahdist War from 1885-1898, Equatoria was made a state under the Anglo-Egyptian condominium in 1899. It was largely left to itself over the following decades, but Christian missionaries converted much of the population and facilitated the spread of English, rather than Arabic. Equatoria was ruled by British colonial administrators separately from what is now Sudan until the two colonies were combined at the 1947 Juba Conference, as part of British plans to prepare the region for independence. When Sudan gained its independence in 1956, it was with the understanding that the southerners would be able to participate fully in the political system. When the Arab Khartoum government ...
