Since beginning their work in Mozambique in 1996, the number of brothers and sisters in this country of 29 million is 13,000, with 404 ecclesias. This country now has more Christadelphians than any country in the world! Additionally, there are about 9,500 Sunday School members across Mozambique.
One out of every four Christadelphians live in Mozambique. 15% of all Christadelphians live in Malawi. When you read those two statements above, what thoughts come to mind? For some people this might be information that they are very familiar with, but for the majority of brethren in North America I think those two statements will be quite startling.
The gap between the tremendous preaching successes in Africa and India and the obstacles to growth we face in traditional areas is astounding. We need to rejoice in the former and overcome the latter. The Tidings will do all we can to encourage both. We’ll be eager to provide an ongoing forum for continued discussion and reporting of progress.
Maybe you, like me, think about the Truth somewhat incrementally. Over time, we have seen outreach produce a few baptisms, and ecclesial results are generally measured by the handful, not by the bushel. But this may be due to our own faulty thinking and limited experience...

I had the honor of being part of one of the two Truth Corps teams in 1975. It was a life-changing experience as it opened my mind to the importance of me and my ecclesia being actively involved in regular outreach.

Spending four years doing missionary work will change a person. The basic mantra I developed was “If you’re not changed by the experience, you’re not trying.” What I mean is that if you are the same person after doing this work (and it is indeed work), then you didn’t put in enough effort (physical, mental, spiritual).

The first Jewish converts to Christianity in Iran were those “Parthians and Medes and Elamites” who returned home to Ctesiphon, Adiabene, and other Jewish centers to break away from synagogues and found churches. There is little evidence of sustained persecution by Zoroastrians, and after 431 AD, when the Nestorian churches...

Have you ever wondered what effect you would have on someone’s life if you did missionary work? This is the story of how God used missionaries in India to affect my life and bring me into Christ’s family.

A blast of hot, odor-laden air assailed me as I stood at the top of the stairs on the Air India jumbo jet at Mumbai’s airport in April 1976. It was the first time I had left the shores of Australia, and the scenes and sounds and smells of my first 24 hours in India were amazing, an incredible contrast to the...
