  • Italy - A Neapolitan Perspective

    Italy - A Neapolitan Perspective

    by Rod Jones, with contributions from Luca Illiano and Alec Catchpole

    Italians are largely mistrustful of their politicians who seem to lurch from one political crisis to another, perpetually locked in a struggle over a mix of ideological values and vested interests.

  • Argentina - Evangelising through Education

    Argentina - Evangelising through Education

    by Benito Bongarra

    It all started 83 years ago, in a neighbourhood far from the centre of Buenos Aires. My father José Bongarrá, then a 17-year-old boy, began to spread the word of God in the vicinity of Villa Real; he started preaching in a 2 m² seed depository, which had been lent to him. The following week he had to look for larger premises. The work started growing: initially he rented a room and then had to build a new meeting place. In 1940, an autonomous Brethren Assembly was established. In 1945, José dedicated himself to working on the monthly Christian magazine, Pregonero Christiano (Christian Announcer) and then, in 1947, to a radio programme, Christian Meditations - all by His grace alone.

    God in the Recycling Business

    by Rebecca Atallah

    The teenage boy standing at our door was so dirty I could hardly make out his features. He wore clothes I wouldn’t even have used as rags. The large, decrepit-looking basket slung over his shoulder was almost full of rubbish; its weight had already caused him to be stoop-shouldered.

    FEUER Network

    by Giovanni Donato

    In Italian we have a saying, ‘l’unione fa la forza’, which means ‘there’s strength in numbers’. This saying is definitely true when it comes to the public proclamation of the gospel. I work in Italy as a staff worker with Gruppi Biblici Universitari (GBU), the Italian Christian Union movement, which is part of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students (IFES). My responsibility within the GBU involves evangelism in a university setting.
