Someone Had to Die – Paul Washer

A video from the original Reformation Nation started by The Pilgrim. It is a worthy reminder for us as we contemplate the upcoming weekend.

Your Only Hope – Christ Alone!

Dr. Steve Lawson produces an amazing impromptu message on the gospel. Truly, this is the only Biblical gospel that can and must be preached in the world today for there is NO HOPE in anyone or anything else. Flee to Christ while there is yet time!

Thanksgiving Perspectives

This Thanksgiving Day, we are providing a post written by the Pilgrim from Thanksgiving 2009. So much has happened and changed in the world in the last 4 years, but there are also many things that have not. This is a reminder we should have in front of us every year. ********* As we in […]

Still Carrying the Torch in Liberia

I thought I would share a very encouraging letter I received from one of the men whom I was able to train over the six months we spent in the jungles of Liberia, West Africa.

Super Bongese – Radio to the Jungles

Praying friends and supporters of the work in Liberia, I wanted to give you a brief update on what is happening with the work in the jungles of West Africa. The Lord continues to bless the two mission works we were able to start as does the third church plant that was started by the […]

The Re-Evangelization of Rome??

The world undergoes change every single day. Some changes are for good, but many prove to be detrimental at best. This last week has produced many noteworthy events. 1. Cyprus has decided that every person who has a bank account should forfeit amounts up to almost 10% of what you own. This has transpired because […]

Passing the Baton – The Jungle Missionary

Dear DefCon Friends, First, thank you ever so much for your prayers and all the letters of encouragement we have received in light of our revised plans due to my on-going health issues. This has been a very hard trial, and although it is not yet over, we continue to trust our Sovereign Lord that […]

How to stagnate the church: A dictator’s manual.

Dear atheistic, communistic dictator: Having trouble with that dastardly underground church spreading like wild fire? No matter how much you seize, imprison, torture, and execute those Christians, the church still keeps flourishing? Christians getting in the way of your nation’s “progressive” progress? Looking for a way to stamp out the spread of Christianity in your […]

Letter from a Recent West African Convert

Dear Friends, I would like to share a very special letter that I received this past Sunday.

His entire family, with the exception of one brother, all remain Mus1ims at this time. Because […]

Conrad Mbewe: “Africa’s rural areas are in desperate need of the true gospel.”

An excerpt from Conrad Mbewe’s article, Africa’s rural areas are in desperate need of the true gospel. “What struck me the most, however, was that while in Lusaka we are falling over each other to plant more and more Reformed Baptist churches, our trip in rural Zambia showed an almost complete absence of any evangelical witness, […]

Forsake everything and preach Christ to the Arabic world.

Two Life-Changers!

Each week that passes more than one million people will go out into eternity. The majority will go to their graves unsung and will not be missed by any but their family and closest friends. With these statistics we have a constant reminder of Hebrews 9:27, “And as it is appointed unto men once to […]

Execution – The Punishment for Faith in Christ

Well, the Muslims are at it again. Once again, they prove to the world that they are NOT the peace-loving people they claim to be. Their arrogance and hatred of Israel and Christians is shown clearly in recent news. Our government is wrong for allowing the Iranian president to come to this country to use […]

Starbucks at the Expense of Gospel Outreach?

As our family continues down the road, I never cease to be amazed at those who tell us, “Oh, I could never do what you are doing!” Or, they may comment, “Lord bless you, but that type of work is definitely not for me!” Similar phrases normally revolve around the lack of amenities that are […]

Reaching the Remote!

This last Saturday was a major blessing for our family as we had the privilege of meeting a brother and sister in Christ who live in Western Colorado. We met first at a restaurant and then were invited to their home where they unveiled to us a series of devices that will allow us to […]

The Three Most Dangerous Words …

It’s a girl. Of course, history is full of such reports. But it’s easy to push history from one’s mind. How horrible – and that mother who killed 8 girls. May God have mercy. We must remember – with all the feminists attacks against Christianity – the religion of the One True God is the […]

Quotes (903)

We may have more wealth in these days, better education, greater comfort in traveling and in our surroundings even as missionaries, but have we the spirit of urgency, the deep, inward convictions that moved those who went before us; have we the same passion of love, personal love for the Lord Jesus Christ? If these […]

Are they inferior or equal?

During the brief months since we returned from our mission trip to Liberia, West Africa, we have been blessed with the places we have visited and the people we have met. Each church has been more than generous even though we have never asked for a single penny in any of them, and the bulk […]
