Meet this Courageous Arab Christian Missionary

Note from GapFill.org’s Founder: I first heard about our latest GapFill.org missionary from my good friend and prayer partner Vicki.  She told me of this amazing, courageous woman who had converted to Christianity.  Her story is real, personal and encouraging to all of us as we try and see God’s big picture in the events of our lives. Read about her background, God’s call and her funding needs for “A School of Hope for the Arab Children”.  Due to the sensitive nature of the area she works in, her name and location cannot be disclosed.  She is an Arab Christian now, however, was raised Muslim.  Here is her story….

My Background

My parents were devout Muslims and made sure they taught us Islamic doctrines and way of life.  My many siblings and I were made to go to Quranic School and say our five daily prayers.

We had little contact with Christians except in a government school we were privileged to attend. The death of my dad at a young age made life difficult for us. My sisters all dropped out of school at 16 to get married to men they had never seen before. The arrangement was made by my uncles according to tradition and there was nothing they could do about it. Several attempts were made to give me out in marriage too but it all failed.

God’s Call on My Life

I had two divine encounters in September 1992, which turned events around in my life.  A man in white, whom I later learned to be Jesus, appeared to me in my room at about midnight one night.  He looked straight into my eyes.  His look brought back the messages I had heard a week earlier from two Christian women. He searched out all my sins and brought them to the surface.  I felt so much guilt and shame and broke down in tears.  I rose up when I felt the burdens in my heart were lifted.  I opened my eyes but he was nowhere to be found.  A similar event occurred a few days later.  This time He spoke and said, “I am here to break the yoke upon your life.”  I have never, after this experience, thought of returning to Islam.  It was then I knew the yoke He meant was the yoke of Islam.

After my conversion, several attempts were made by my immediate family members to eliminate me. My elder brother, who later embraced Christ, confessed to poising my food and drink several times. The Lord neutralized the effect of the poisons and I grew stronger. This infuriated my brothers and they resorted to beating me mercilessly. They had left me for dead several times but the Lord kept strengthening me. The family met and decided I had brought so much shame to the family by being a Christian. Their final verdict was for me to be thrown into the lagoon. A date was set but I got wind of their plan and escaped.  The brethren in the local church were threatened and they brought me back to my family. I faced another set of persecutions which included hunger, neglect and deprivation. I had no friends and I had to face the wrath of my uncles day by day. The worst came when I refused to marry the man they had arranged for me to marry. I reported the case to the police station because I was 18 years old by then and of age where I could make decisions by myself.  My family was terribly angry and they all rejected me and vowed never to have anything to do with me again. I left them that day and found comfort in the arms of my Christian friends. I got a job in a private school as an assistant teacher. I saved some money and bought forms which gave me access to have a university education.  Shortly before my admission, my uncle became a Christian and was willing to support me all through college. A few weeks later, he was assassinated in cold blood. I went to the university without any tangible help. I had no sponsor and hardly had enough. I had no good clothes and no food to eat. I went to classes sometimes on an empty stomach. But God saw me through and I graduated six years later instead of four because I refused to give in to the seductive requests of three male lectures which earned me extra semesters.

I heard an audible voice while in college. After days of fasting and prayers, the Lord said, “I will use you to help your people.”  The “help” God spoke about was later unfolded as I sought His face.  This vision is what gave birth to my current ministry which is a faith based initiative geared towards giving hope and a future (in Christ) to the Arabs.  After college graduation I joined a theological seminary which helped to shape my current ministry.

What’s Next?School Child

GapFill has partnered with this courageous woman in “The School of Hope for Arab Children” project that has been posted to GapFill.org’s website.  At the moment, 23 Arab children between the ages of 3 to 13 years attend the school while 43 others receive educational support at another care center located off-site. Their goal in this faith-based initiative is to expose these young children to the saving power of Jesus and make them mighty arrows in the hands of the Lord. Below are items that currently need funding.

School Needs
Rent $1,650/year
2 additional teachers – 1st year $1,320
Sustainability for 2 teachers $55/month/teacher
School Supplies $500
Furniture $600
Uniforms $500
Computers / Laptop $1,000

Check out this Needed Project on GapFill.org to donate online.

This Arab Christian missionary is in place; the nursery and primary school is in place; the off-site care center is in place; and, God’s Spirit is bringing students in. GapFill is asking you to help “fill in the gap” with donations toward school needs noted above. By training the young children in the truth, GapFill believes this is one small way they can begin to give the hope in Christ to Arab children.  Many blessings and thanks for your generosity.

Gapfill.org’s Impact!

Good Afternoon GapFill Partners,

At least it is the afternoon where I live, and I am enjoying a type of calm before the storm as I write this update. (My daughter gets married in 3 weeks…Yikes!)

I cannot put into words how blessed I feel to be part of this GapFill community who all feel such a passion for Christian mission work.  I do not believe you will truly know the impact you have had this side of heaven on Christian missionaries lives, and for that I humbly thank you.  Some of that impact starts with…

Solar Panels

Solar Panels

heat needed for a widow missionary in a sensitive area of the world.

Enough money was raised to buy solar panels for this widow’s roof to supply her home with heat.  To give you an idea of the type of woman she is and how she spends the money entrusted to her from you, she told one of her fellow missionaries that she should have a quote for the solar project within the next few weeks. She mentioned many people say they can do it but really cannot.  She does not want to waste any funds until she is sure the work can be completed correctly.  But then she laughed and said, “Now we will be ready for summer”, which was kind of amusing.  But next winter she will be all the more thankful.  This type of stewardship is indicative of all of our GapFill missionaries.  Learn more >>

Preach the Word

Speaking of missionaries in sensitive areas…new for 2015 is Kevin Rodriguez – preaching the Word of God in a closed area of the world.  He will be gone one month traveling to different spots within this “closed country” preaching the Word and sharing the light of Jesus to the native people and orphans.

Northpoint Dorm

Northpoint Dorm

Another new project for 2015 is the Northpoint Bible College Repairs.  This may seem like a strange project to have on GapFill’s website but the winter in the Northeast United States was very severe this year (as in other parts of the US) and since Northpoint Bible college is the “breeding” ground for Christian missionaries it only made sense to help them in this need.  Learn more >>

Thanks again for the impact you are making this side of heaven,

Sharing Jesus with Muslim Women

Note from GapFill.org’s Founder:  So how does God call missionaries?  Many times it is one step at a time, one change at a time.  Vanessa Hernandez is one step closer after her return from Madrid, Spain and North Africa where she did an internship to get a better understanding of the Muslim community, in particular Muslim women where she believes God is calling her to minister.  Vanessa spent 6 weeks living among the Muslim people and has shared some of her thoughts.

What is Required?

“… From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.” Luke 12:48

VanessaIt’s no mystery that here in America we have been given so much. After having a great conversation with someone I look up to, I couldn’t stop thinking about this verse she shared. We live in a country in which we have been given the chance to know and follow God.  A LOT has been given to us, churches everywhere, and the choice to follow Him or…this world. The Lord requires more of me…of us for MUCH has been given. I believe He holds us up to a higher standard because of what has been given. I think back to a conversation I had with young ladies from Bangladesh and what they have not been given.  One young lady in particular can’t even admit to her father she prayed in the name of Jesus.  But she is giving Jesus all she can, and what she is able to do.  It just made me fall to my knees on just how lucky we have it.  Though all of us come from different situations we have the choice.  A good friend told me, “Christ is enough, and if He wasn’t than there would be no hope.”  So though life seems hard, Christ will always be enough.  For nothing can compare.  To the ones that know Jesus…we have a job to do.  He is expecting us to live out all we have been given.  I want to live out with NO excuses because …well…Christ is enough.

Hadijah

This lady. Such a gem. Her name is Hadijah. Miracles are happening in her home, and I’m so excited for what the Lord is doing in her life. It’s just the beginning.

 

Who can Compare?

“I am the way the truth and the light.”

Every other religion points towards the way.  They point and use prophets to try to “make a point”.  But it never actually makes sense.  In fact Muslims don’t have any guarantee of actually going to heaven.  They live their life keeping track of their good and bad deeds.

But our Jesus is the only way.  He is the only one to have said, “I am the way the truth and light.” (John 14:6).  It’s no mystery or an opinion, it”s all true.  Nothing can compare to our Jesus.  Maybe some of you know someone who can’t grasp who Jesus is yet, or might be having a hard time believing in who He is.  Share with them stories of how Jesus has healed, and set those in bondage free.  The word of God does it by itself, we simply communicate it.

For He is the way, the truth..and the light.

 

Lets pray for the Arab World

Arab Streets

Arab Streets

My next door neighbor while being in Morocco was a Mosque where prayers went off all day and was a little of a surprise at 4 am.  Should we not be concerned with the 40% that does not know right from wrong?  Should we not be praying, mobilizing, and going forth to proclaim the gospel to those that have not heard?  Are we really following the Great Commission?

There are approximately 11,500 people groups and about  6,500 are unreached.  The unreached consists of muslims, hindus, atheists, tribal/folk, etc.  They are loved in the eyes of Jesus and we must pray that He himself will reveal in their dreams.

Imagine walking through a country in which saying the name of Jesus is dangerous. Constantly hearing the call to prayer go out through the day and the feeling of complete darkness walking through the streets.  They need hope.  They need Jesus.  Lets pray for the Arab World.

Visit Vanessa’s blog as she continues to share the “lessons” that Jesus is teaching her as she prepares for mission work. Visit our “Items Needed” tab on the GapFill.org website to see if God is calling you to “fill in the gap”  for a current missionary in need.  To receive GapFill.org’s blog posts automatically via email, enter your email address in the “FOLLOW GAPFILL VIA EMAIL” box on the right-hand side of the blog and click “Follow”.

Update from the Mesem in Papua New Guinea

Note from GapFill.org’s Founder: It has been almost a year and a half since I had the privilege of being at the Mesem New Testament dedication in Papua New Guinea.  This was a twenty year work for missionaries Neil and Kathy Vanaria.  Neil was able to return to Papua New Guinea in April of 2014 to check on the Mesem to see how the churches and the Christians were doing.  I told Neil that he must have felt like the Apostle Paul checking on his churches he planted.  Neil has just returned and sent me the following update.  Thank you GapFill donors for giving toward the Preaching the Mesem New Testament project as Neil was able to use the donated monies to help the churches and Mesem Christian missionaries in need.  Here is Neil’s update.  At the time we were celebrating the arrival of the Mesem New Testament (NT) with our Mesem friends our schedules allowed us to participate in the initial celebration, however, none of us were able to participate in the celebration & distribution which took place in almost every village after we left. There are however some great reports. In Hobu village, an older woman who had worn eyeglasses from a young age was very concerned when she heard she was to get her own copy of the Mesem NT. Her eyes were pretty bad and she used eyeglasses for everything, cooking, going to the garden, walking along the trail. Her eyes were bad enough that reading was not something she could do very easily. So when she heard she was to get her own copy of the Mesem NT she became concerned that she might not ever be able to read it. So she simply asked the Lord to heal her eyes so she could read the Mesem NT when she received it. That was months before the NT arrived. And on the day she received the NT the Lord healed her eyes. Not only does she read but she no longer needs eyeglasses at all!

Neil's Jungle Selfie

Neil’s Jungle Selfie of him & some children of the Niso village after they spent about an hour together reading the Gospel of John in Mesem.

My visit to the Mesem also brought me to Niso village where we had done a comprehension check of 1, 2, 3  John & Jude back in 2008. On this visit I could see there seemed to be some significant interest in adult literacy and producing more books – especially Sunday school material. Later the village elder, Fisika,  asked me if I knew why there was so much interest in reading even though the initial celebration and distribution of the NT was more than a year ago. He then told me that after they had brought the Mesem NT in cartons from Samanzing they decided to have their thanksgiving and distribution service the next day. Fisika said that during the service when they cut the sealing tape from the cartons & opened them there was such a strong presence of God that many people could not stand up!  So now they feel like the best way to get that power is by learning to read. Many younger Mesem can read and read well. Adults have not always been interested. So I suggested to Fisika that each Sunday they read 3 or 5 verses of John together after church. Taking the time to be sure each person who comes to that Sunday reading lesson can adequately read the selected verses, then assigning those same verses as practice through the week in preparation for public reading the following Sunday. Repeat each week. It shouldn’t be long before people who had not learned before will feel comfortable reading Mesem.

Yanga Explains

Yanga Explains

I also delivered 6 copies of our current project – a New Testament cultural reader called “How the Jews Lived” to Yanga, Dick, Funkeka, Kundolo and two vernacular school teachers, Konaga & NoBruce. Their job will be to read through the book – which I had printed before leaving the US – to make spelling & other corrections. Once that is done they will mail the book to me and I will enter the final corrections into the computer. Once in final form I will email the file to the Evangelical Brotherhood Church print shop in Lae. I met with them and they said they would be happy to print out the book – about 65 pages long – for us. The print shop manager has given me the bank details so I can send payment from here and I also introduced him to Yanga & Dick who will come down from the village to proof-read the text before production begins. The Yanga Explains picture is of Yanga telling people in the village about this new book we are producing. After talking things over with Dick & Yanga we have decided to begin translating the Book of Job into Mesem. It really fits their world view of “if you do nothing bad, nothing bad happens to you”, of God’s control over our lives and of the unity of man & woman in marriage. I will spend about one day a week preparing the rough draft in Mesem and sending it along to Dick & Yanga a chapter at a time. Others are interested and have already begun translating the Psalms. Dick Hedzure is very frustrated with the contentions of adults in Samanzing but continues in his calling as a teacher of the Gospel to children and young adults in Samanzing & Mukuwe villages. Yanga Tumbe lost his younger brother earlier this year. Yanga’s brother was working far away in Alatau when he died and so communication and repatriation of the body back to the family were very time consuming. While Yanga remains very busy preaching and teaching in Mesem his real priority needs to be building a house for his family. We talked about that again.

Future Mesem Office

Future Mesem Office that Sikiong built

Funkeka Karise & husband Sikiong have dedicated a room in the house which Sikiong built of concrete brick, the room will be used to support Mesem NT activities. In addition to safely storing NTs which are yet to be distributed, Sikiong is in the process of getting bids to install solar electricity into the house. Once that is complete we will have a place to print Mesem materials and quite possibly reliable email & telephone communication. Kitiwanu Lounu has made a couple of visits out to the east Mesem to promote reading and NT distribution. He has for the last year held Bible studies, scripture reading & worship sessions under a palm-leaved roofed sun shelter he built next to his own house. People meet twice a week with Kitiwanu. Ulam Papane & Kimambi Kumbo continue to support reading the Scriptures in Mesem and will help with corrections to “How the Jews Lived” and in editing/revising of the Book of Job. While there were a lot of conversations I did not get to have, I am really encouraged to see & hear the Mesem NT is being widely used and still supported by the community. Neil and Kathy Vanaria are currently working on the translation of the Tok Pisin Study Bible while they “keep tabs” on how the Mesem are doing.  Visit the “Items Needed” tab on the GapFill.org website to see how you can continue to help the Mesem in the Preaching and Teaching of the Mesem New Testament.  To receive GapFill.org’s blog posts automatically via email, enter your email address in the “FOLLOW GAPFILL VIA EMAIL” box on the right-hand side of the blog and click “Follow”.

Update from John and Kay West – Missionaries in South Aftrica

Note from GapFill.org’s Founder: I just received Kay and John West’s newsletter and thought I would share it. What a great post on reconciliation as we head into this season of Lent.  

 And through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Colossians 1:20

ColorBlindKids

Color Blind Kids

I am writing this letter in the midst of seeming chaos. Empty and full and half-full boxes have invaded our entire house. Random piles greet me everywhere I look, and the house we’ve called home for three and a half years now is in seeming shambles as we labor to get ready to move to the country of South Africa in less than one week, while simultaneously continuing ministry here in Swaziland. In addition there are still many unanswered questions about work permits, how we’ll afford to live where the costs of living are higher, if we’ll have any problems crossing the border with our belongings, and if the leaks in the ceiling and plumbing in our new home will be fixed when we move in.

Yet we stand firm, knowing God is in charge, and we trust Him. He is a God of order, of peace, and of reconciliation. We know He has a plan!

For he himself is our peace, who has made the two one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by abolishing in his flesh the law with its commandments and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new man out of the two, thus making peace, and in this one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility.  He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. Ephesians 2:14

Reconciliation to Himself through the cross was and is His master plan, and we are so thankful for this fact that we are committed to pouring out our lives to share this good news!

Lately, though, He has also been placing on our hearts another facet of reconciliation–between people, and specifically between the diverse races and classes that make up the “Rainbow Nation” of South Africa.

JesusLove

Sharing the Love of Jesus

We are and will be smack dab in the middle of “Mandela country.” Most of you probably heard that Nelson Mandela died at the end of 2013. It was worldwide news; here, it was a MAJOR event, and a MAJOR time of grief for Swaziland and for South Africa. Whatever you think of the man, his methods, and his motives, there is no denying what he did for his country during a pivotal, violent time. His message of forgiveness and reconciliation has radically impacted the lives and hearts of South Africans and of much of the world.

Sadly, there still exists a huge gap between rich (predominantly the white South Africans) and the poor (predominantly the black South Africans), and between the association of most whites and most blacks. The CIA website explains it in this way. “The first multiracial elections in 1994 brought an end to Apartheid….South Africa since then has struggled to address Apartheid-era imbalances in decent housing, education, and healthcare.” The site provides many statistics to back this up. Just a few include 31.3% of the population below the poverty line, and an unemployment rate of 25.1%. https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/sf.html

We have personally witnessed valiant attempts by both blacks and whites to get along after decades of segregation and mistrust, but we still see a huge amount of fear from both sectors, and definite discrepancies in standards of living. Our friends from SA, both blacks and whites, fear for our safety as we whites venture into “black” neighborhoods. (A caveat here—I have never felt it necessary to distinguish between races and it appalls me to do so now, but the fact is that in SA, racism going both ways is a major issue and pretending it doesn’t exist would be foolhardy.)

Kay and John

Kay and John

We have no idea how God might use us, but we do believe He will, in His plan to reconcile His people in South Africa. We know we find great joy in speaking siSwati to the black South Africans and seeing their astonishment that white people care enough to learn their language. 🙂 We are also committed to learning a decent amount of Afrikaans, another of the 11 official languages in our new country of service and the primary language of the majority of whites there. We know we have so much else to learn as well. But we are willing vessels—stay tuned!

In the meantime, we remain committed to being “ministers of reconciliation”  by sharing the Gospel and His love wherever He leads us. We are in awe and delighted that God uses us even in the midst of the mundane and frustrating business of moving to another country.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 2 Cor. 5:17

Before sharing some of those mundane details, I want to share just one story of how God has been working recently in our lives. We had only a few days in Nelspruit, SA, our future home, to find a place to live. It was a discouraging time of many doors being figuratively and literally shut in our faces, and to be honest, we felt like giving up. But, as we shared with our gracious hosts and friends Mitch and Char, even if we couldn’t find the house we thought we needed, we knew that God had a Kingdom plan that might or might not suit our impatience and selfishly-perceived essential conditions.

We are so grateful that He doesn’t give up on us, and uses us in spite of our egocentric desires. On the last day, we met with a potential landlord named Bailey. He’s quite a character, and the house he became willing to rent to us after our interview is rather dilapidated, though roomy, and in a safe neighborhood. The interview itself progressed quickly from formal to informal, and in the course of all his coarse jokes we were told that he has cancer that progressed from his colon to his liver, and that he is afraid. We also discovered that this man has a praying wife. Bailey doesn’t quite yet seem to grasp that God’s grace and mercy are all he needs to cover a life of sin, but we believe he will. We were allowed the privilege of praying for Bailey, right there in the realtor’s office, while tears rolled down his cheeks. We know God is not finished with our intermingled stories—He has woven our lives together for His wondrous purposes. Yes, we signed the lease.

Timeline:

  • March 1–move from Swaziland to South Africa
  • April 1-4–retreat with other missionaries on our team with whom we will serve the townships, as well as with the local pastors from those areas. The purpose will be to get to know each other and everyone’s roles as we come together to share the Gospel and practical help for those in dire need.
  • May—will start “official” ministry with widows and orphans in the townships. But we all know that as we’re surrendered servants, God uses us each and every day!

Prayer Requests:

  • The work of reconciliation—to God and amongst people
  • Bailey to know the full goodness and peace of reconciliation with God through Jesus Christ.
  • Funding for a new (used) vehicle for us. Driving in rural Africa to far-flung villages is brutal on vehicles, as is transporting carloads of people, food boxes for care points, drinking water, firewood, building supplies, live chickens…
  • The fields are ripe for harvest in the South African townships—please pray for open hearts to receive God’s love as He directs us to show it.
