    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.

    Japan - Below the Surface

    by Timothy Marcy

    When you think of Japan, what immediately comes to mind? Mount Fuji? Sushi? Toyota? Sony? You may be aware that the Japanese are by and large well-educated, hard-working and financially prosperous. Their scientists are world-class and their technology cutting edge. You may even know that, since the Second World War, Japan has been one of the safest and most peace-loving nations in the world. The crime rate is low.1 Individuals and communities are, as a rule, clean, neat and orderly.

    Dentists with a Gospel Heart

    by Paul and Beth Brind

    Tanzania has been greatly impacted by the gospel since the beginning of the modern missionary movement more than 200 years ago. As faithful servants of God proclaimed the good news, many people in this vast country believed and became followers of Jesus. Dr David Livingstone, the pioneer missionary, travelled throughout the country in the 1860s. On his travels he visited Mwanza, a large town on the southern shore of Lake Victoria. Almost 150 years later Mwanza became our home, as we followed God’s call to serve and build His Kingdom in this part of Tanzania.

    Transitioning in Clermont-Ferrand

    by Bob Souza

    The beginnings of the work in Clermont-Ferrand (Clermont) can be traced back to the early decades of the 20th century. The open-air and tent work of René Zinder, a Swiss evangelist, was used by God to bring together the nucleus of believers who would form the local church. The church remained small but maintained its witness through what we would call the ‘ghetto years’, that long period in the 20th century when evangelical Christians in France were marginalised and looked upon with suspicion by the general population.
