SPEAKING TRUTH IN LOVE
In March, LCM missionary Turgay Yusuf spoke to an audience of 40 Muslim guests about ‘The Beauties of Christianity’.
THE POWER OF WORDS
“Language can be a huge barrier, but also a bridge to sharing the gospel,” says East London-based missionary Alice Cooper.
Last year, we told you about a group of church members raising the spirits of estate residents by performing songs during the first lockdown.
AWAKENING TO JESUS
IT’S LIGHT NOW AND BEFORE IT WAS DARK. IT’S AS IF MY EYES HAVE OPENED. I HAD BEEN ASLEEP FOR MANY YEARS AND I’VE FINALLY WOKEN UP.
CAREFUL STEPS TOWARDS LIFE WITH JESUS
One of the first times our missionary met Helen*, she was in the midst of a mental health crisis and threatening to take her own life.
PAST CHILDHOOD TRAUMA, NOW OPENING UP TO JESUS
Five years ago, an older, disabled man called Joe* arrived at
our centre in Dagenham and quietly sat in the background.
SERVING THE HOMELESS COMMUNITY IN A CRISIS
When lockdown was announced back at the end of March,
our day centre for homeless people had to dramatically change
– and fast.
ABUSED AND VULNERABLE, BUT GROWING IN CHRIST
James* had a difficult relationship with church. He was
diagnosed with autism and schizophrenia and after going to a
church for many years, in his 20s he became involved in a cult
where he had negative and damaging experiences.
But our missionary Shane knew none of this when he first
met James, and starting running Bible studies with him and
his friends. As trust grew between the group, James’ story
emerged, and in time Shane invited him to church.
TURNING TO CHRIST IN THE PANDEMIC
Five years ago, missionary Olly met a young medical student,
Anna*, while he was doing street evangelism at a Hounslow
book table. He walked with her along the high street and told
Anna about Jesus.
THE MUSLIM WOMEN JOURNEYING TOWARDS JESUS
Samira*, a young Pakistani mum-of-three, used to creep in
the side entrance to our centre in East London and send a text
to our worker when she was safely in the office.
