Following the recent massacre in Garissa I was in touch with Edward Buria, based in Meru, who leads an apostolic sphere within the Newfrontiers family.

I am sure the situation in Iraq is concerning us all and we feel ‘What can I do?’ Here is an opportunity to read a personal story. It was sent to me recently by a friend from those on the ground and will tell you one way in which you can help. The help is not a Newfrontiers initiative as such, […]

I have had a number of enquiries, due to my contacts over the years, asking for advice concerning giving to the situation in the Philippines at this time of rebuilding following the typhoon.

I am taking the liberty of passing on the details of an email I have received from Rob Williams who leads the Finance Team in the Fulham Office. He and I travelled to Kenya in January.
