Not long ago the city of Medellin, Colombia was only known for it’s diabolical drug trade, under the firm grip of the Escobar’s. This vice and violence filled city of almost 4 million was rapidly decaying from within, with thousands of lives captured by addiction but ten’s of thousands of family members and society paying the price. But over the past 20 years, things have begun to change...

This another update on April 5th from the directors of Teen Challenge Japan on the aftermath of the earthquake which hit Japan on March 11th 2011:
Thank you for your prayers and financial help. We have received donations from California, Bristol (U.K.) and Phuket (Thailand). The initial shock & panic seems to have subsided after 3 weeks, but there are several aftershocks everyday in Sendai and the danger of radiation leak is still very present in Fukushima, so we need your prayers.
This is the third update from the directors of Teen Challenge Japan on the aftermath of the earthquake which hit Japan on March 11th 2011:
In Hachioji, all the food is gone from the supermarkets and petrol stations are closed. Scheduled power cuts started yesterday, and the radiation level in the air today was 20-40 times the normal. That is in Tokyo which was NOT hit by tsunami; we can't imagine how bad the situation is where the tsunami struck.
This is a second update from the directors of Teen Challenge Japan on the aftermath of the earthquake which hit Japan on March 11th 2011:
Thank you for your continual prayers for our country. It's almost midnight and I'm finding it hard to put in words what is happening, but I must do so now because there will be a systematic power cut in Tokyo from tomorrow morning.
1,600 people have been found dead and over 20,000 people are still missing, and the number is bound to increase.
This is a general update from the directors of Teen Challenge Japan on the aftermath of the earthquake which hit Japan on March 11th 2011:
First of all, Teen Challenge Centre in Okinawa was protected and all the staff and students are fine. TC Headquarters in Tokyo as well as our church in Hachioji are also O.K.
Thank you for praying for the Haiti pastors’ conference.
Many pastors, denominational leaders and superintendents talked about the conference as a divine moment and in terms of "before and after." The conference changed their lives and renewed their passion to serve the Lord together across denominational lines in Haiti.
Many have traveled far and wide from all over the country.
The preaching of the word was powerful, the worship was amazing and prayer was thunderous.
The trip to Cairo was incredibly fascinating. We can read books about it, check the Internet for a country profile, or learn its history but it’s the people and their stories that bring it to life and made a big difference.
We were all set to go as of last week until I received a message that the original venue was not available. We made a short trip and managed to find another venue, smaller than what we have hoped. Please pray that all who come will fit. We have overflow rooms. We trust that the Lord will make a way.
It's hot and humid but when it rains it can get cold.
