Christians Murdered in Turkey

A letter to the Global Church from The Protestant Church of Smyrna (Izmir, Turkey)

Dear friends,

This past week has been filled with much sorrow.

Seeing the love of Jesus – a Near Death Experience

It was a Wednesday night August 2005 when I was rushed to emergency due to chronic abdominal pain and vomiting thought to be pancreatitis. My bowel had burst, my lungs collapsed and my kidney’s failed. I was wrapped in ice due to my soaring temperature of 42 degrees Celsius and no blood pressure. My body was pumped full of fluid which caused retention and my weight soared from 65-140kg within one week. It literally ripped me apart. The pain was so excruciating that my body started shutting down. I went blind and could not speak.

The exhaustion I felt was tremendous.

Turning Defeat into Victory

Introduction: In chapter 7 we see Joshua and his men getting routed by the men of Ai because of the sin of one man Achan who coveted and kept devoted things from the previous exploits, against the specific command of God to not do so. This defeat follows a grand victory God had given the Israelites when the walls of Jericho collapsed and the entire city was destroyed and every living thing in that city was put to the sword by the Israelites.

The Lord’s Hand

As I woke up this morning, I noted an involuntary haste even as I checked the water levels in the radiator before leaving for work.The usual trafffic jam on the highway to my office was curioulsy absent.

Please pray for my admission into Harvard Business School

Dear fellow Christians:

I am currently on the waitlist at Harvard Business School, and strongly want to attend this school in the aim of earning my MBA. I come to you now asking you to pray for my admission into Harvard, and I ask you to pray for the imapact I will make on others, leading them to our Father in Christ. I ask you all to pray that my name is removed from the list, and that I am notified immediately of a seat for me at this school.


The introduction at the beginning of each chapter is not the chapter itself. You must click on the highlighted title of each chapter to bring up the entire chapter to read it. Each chapter is quite long and comprehensive.

The “danger” in preaching the truth resides only in the imagination of the person who doesn’t understand the truth.

The online book “HIS ACHIEVEMENT ARE WE” by James Coram needs no defense. It stands on its own merit.
It has helped many people.

my testimony

Because my testimony is helping so many people, I am posting it here so it will stay on your front page for awhile if that’s ok with you.

Personal Testimony of Michael Fackerell

Though very familiar with the Bible and believing myself a Christian, it wasn’t until much later that my life was truly changed by turning to Christ. Includes details of how I was filled with the Holy Spirit for the first time and what a difference that made to me. This is the first part of my story. Living with Jesus Christ means the adventure continues and something new is always happening!

John Hemans – a rocker gets unchained

My somewhat chequered career as a musician is documented here, in words and photos. The bands I played in had varying degrees of success, and through my career I guess I must have played just about every venue from Sydney to Perth (and all points in between!). There’s a story behind each of these bands, and these days they’re all like bookmarks of my life to me. In my testimony, you’ll see how my life was completely revolutionised by an encounter with God. I hope my story touches you. If you’d like to contact me, drop me a line.

Where Shall I Hide –

I want to tell you about the single most important event in my life. In doing so I will have to reveal some things of a personal
nature. I guess almost everyone has things in their personal history which they would rather were otherwise. There is no
profit in dwelling on things which have been cast into the sea of forgetfulness; they are recalled here only to provide some
necessary background.
