    29 November 2012

    "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»

  • PDF - A Tribute to our Muslim Friends - December 2012

    27 November 2012

    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»

And the bracing winter climate together with the friendliness, stimulation and generosity of the people gave me new energy, inspiration and ideas for our work over here. Everywhere I was given hospitality and empathetic hearing. Our work is essential and effective though small in the larger context. We just wish we could do more but we need another doctor who will not be easy to find either from within Bangladesh or overseas." Read more in this 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»

    1 November 2011

    One youth's dream to experience mission, coupled with a responsive youth group leader with people-resources grew into a youth group trip to Tonga. "When we wondered if we were, in fact, 'doing mission', we remembered the Archbishop of Polynesia's advise to 'just go, see, hear and be with the people'. At times, this put us outside our personal comfort zones. Fortunately we belong to a God who never leaves nor forsakes us, nor lets His little ones be put to shame. We hope the Tongans saw God in us, just as we saw Him shining through them. May the fruit of our journey continue to grow in both communities." more»
