Dr. Miranda Mission Report : Uganda October 6-18, 2008

It's a balmy Sunday afternoon here in Uganda. We have just had one of our almost daily afternoon thunder showers, which explains the lush growth and tropical flowers that abound everywhere. The sun is out again and a light breeze blowing, birds singing (including the "plantain eater" whose "song" in our E. Africa bird book is described as "calls with loud, querulous and nasal notes which build up into a maniacal laughter." And that is a truly apt description! Read More »

Sermon June 15, 2008 : The task of being a father

Let’s give a hand to Claudio Yeme, a good friend of mine. You know, we’re going to have a little bilingual dynamic here, and I don’t know who’s translating this morning and I praise the Lord for you, and I thank you but you know what, just because I’m doing an experiment here, I’m going to be translating my brother from up here. So, you know, I want to introduce more of an English dynamic just to see what the Lord does as we’re revamping our English ministry and so on and so forth, so this morning I would like to translate as an experiment here and we’re having kind of this bilingual dynamic today, so thank you whoever you are there translating this morning.  Read More »

Dr. Neil T. Anderson Boston Conference May 2-3, 2008 : Discipleship Counseling (9 Videos)

From Dr. Neil Anderson's invitation to the conference: "Many pastors are overwhelmed by the problems besetting their people, and some feel they are not adequately equipped to deal with them. In addition, most pastors don't want or can't handle one more activity on their plate. Freedom in Christ Ministries is fully aware of the problems that pastors are facing. In addition, there aren’t enough pastors and counselors in this country to help more than five percent of the population if that is all they did. We have to equip the lay person to do the work of ministry or it is not going to get done. Discipleship Counseling is a ministry that can be accomplished by well trained lay people. Several exploratory studies and research dissertations are clearly showing the positive results of Discipleship Counseling and the encouragers in the studies were all lay people. Read More »

Sermon April 20, 2008 : Are you a warrior in God's army?

Paul, come forward. Welcome this morning. God bless you. What a blessing it is to be here today. I want you to turn to the person next to you and say ‘I’m a part of a great church’. Do you believe that this morning? Now, I want you to say that ‘I am a great church’. And I’m hoping to be able to trace for that thinking, that mindset this morning, because there are way too many Christians that go to a great church and so Sunday is the greatest day of the week.  Read More »
