In January 2017, I had the privilege of visiting our missionary, Bill Issa, and his family in Kampala, Uganda.

This was my first visit to Uganda, and I would have to rate it fairly high among the African countries I have visited in terms of friendliness and development. I arrived late Saturday night, and Sunday morning joined Bill’s church, Reconciliation... Keep Reading

  I can still remember reading the first of Mario Maneville’s reports when I returned to the role of Africa Coordinator over 18 months ago. As I read accounts of his church’s ministry to gangs, drug dealers, and prostitutes in the Cape region, I thought, “I want to see this for myself!” A year and a half later, that desire was finally fulfilled. After visiting our missionary pastor Bill Issa in Uganda, my next stop was Cape Town, South Africa. When many people think... Keep Reading
