All of us at Herald of Faith wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year! As we reflect on the past year, we give thanks to the Lord for watching over us, and to you for your support!.
Kathy and I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Cap-haitien, Haiti.
“I spent two weeks in Lebanon teaching future leaders of the Christian Church in the Middle East and the Muslim world”, writes Joel Mattsson-Boze, grandson of Joseph, the founder of Herald of Faith.
What an amazing year we had in 2014. God has given us a mandate to develop pastoral leaders and strengthen local churches and that is what we have been doing.
Walking onto an American Airlines jet instead of a no name prop-plane to go to Haiti was exciting, but remembering our previous trip and the short, bumpy airstrip, and the small, hot sweat of the crowded two room field office where our luggage was taken, opened and searched, while a man with a machine gun stood by, gave me a slight pit in my stomach.
Whether it is navigating a jungle river by canoe in Central America to train leaders, preaching to the believers in the high mountains of South America, teaching national pastors in war-torn Eastern Africa, or evangelizing in rural India or Pakistan – there are always adventures for those involved in the ministry of the Herald of Faith!
