Assisting Ukrainian Refugees in Moldova

In response to the ongoing crisis in Ukraine, Mission10:14 is working with a partnering church in Moldova to assist Ukrainian refugees who have fled their homes and are now seeking shelter in a neighboring country. Although this opportunity is outside of our normal geographic focus in West Africa, we have had these connections in the Moldova region for almost 20 years. Additionally, Africans who have been in Ukraine for school and work have also been caught up in the crisis. […]

This is Why We Go

  IN THE VILLAGE OF KO (between two rivers), darkness has ruled the hearts of people throughout its history. During the rainy season the rivers and flood planes rise—making roads impassable, and virtually cutting off the village from its neighbors for months. Then, as the rains come to an end (usually by November) and the waters recede, the people begin to travel more freely and interact with their neighbors in other villages. Living in Ko is a man known as Si. […]

Net the Village

Recently, Mission10:14 carried out its latest Net the Village project in a remote village in Mali. The team arrived just before nightfall, and the project was conducted the following day. Early in the morning, the noise of a busy crowd grew as mothers with their children, children with their younger siblings, elders from the village, and young boys and girls who were eager to offer their help, all gathered for the event. As the distribution began, the village chief gave his blessings […]

Light into the Darkness

Nighttime often gives the best opportunity to meet with those who are willing to gather and hear a message from God’s word, to watch a film, or to meet for discipleship and prayer.

Making Disciples

  In His book, Disciples are Made, Not Born, Walter Henrichsen encourages Christians to live lives that are not self-focused, and to focus our lives on making disciples for Jesus. With many of us the process of making disciples might seem to be nothing more than simply fitting that activity into what we are already doing on a daily basis. However, in Mali, where believers are few and pastors are even fewer, making disciples takes a lot of intentional effort. […]

Helping Prevent Malaria

                            Over the past five years, Mission10:14 has been engaged in helping to reduce the cases of malaria with its Net the Village (NtV) project. Through the generous donations of our partners and friends, we are able to help protect lives by the gift of a treated mosquito net. Net the Village aims to combat malaria in a village by providing treated mosquito nets to families with children five years […]

God’s Patience

                          The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.—2 Peter 3:9 Resisting the pressure of her father, Mari refused to leave her husband and return to her parent’s home following her husband’s conversion to Christ. As news of his new faith spread across the village of […]

Children Make a Difference Through Net the Village

Across Sub-Saharan Africa, millions of children’s lives are at risk because of malaria. Therefore, children in Georgia and Mississippi have gotten serious about joining the fight against this deadly disease and helping save a child’s life. This Summer, when presented with the opportunity, children and their families raised enough money to place mosquito nets in the homes throughout one village for each family with children under the age of five years. Georgia During the month of June, “Miss Debbie” challenged […]

Persecution is Necessary

In relating his story, F talked about the importance of rejection and persecution in the life of a believer. As he shared his own experience, he underscored his conclusion about living as a follower of Jesus Christ: “Persecution is necessary in order to have a strong faith.” For more than 15 years after coming to Christ by faith, F had been persecuted and shunned by his family.

I Will Die On This Path

  Sitting in the village, I heard the chief say, “I will die on this path.” In my mind, I wondered, “How did he arrive at that point, where he is willing to say that he will follow Jesus until death?” Surrounding us were 15 other men from the village—all Muslim. The chief’s declaration was not to be considered lightly. He had taken the risk and told all who were present that he was a follower of Jesus Christ. A […]
