B Y   D A V I D    M c Q U E L HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL   But for us at the World Missions Centre, Abidjan, it is an even bigger day. Today is the 5 th anniversary of the launch of the World Missions Africa Blog.   When we launched on January 1, 2017, we had only on our hearts a message to share about the love of God through our Lord Jesus Christ and on our minds anxiety and questions if anyone at all will read the message we blog.   Here was our first blog post published on January 3, 2017: “Welcome to our blog. World Missions, Africa is making every effort to bring the love of Christ to all humanity. Primarily, we focus on  Africa  now in our physical activities. But with the online community, our efforts extends to the ends of the earth. Jesus died for all humanity. Every race, every ethnic group, every people, male or female, bound or free, the gospel of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ is free to all. Jesus said, "Go into all the world and preach the go

 TODAY marks 7 years since the blog World Missions Africa was created. We are convinced God wants us to lift our focus beyond Africa to the harvest of the nations. Therefore, in the spirit of this obedience, this blog will no longer be called World Missions Africa, but Evangelism, Discipleship and Missions a.k.a. EDM Blog. Thank you all our tens of thousands of visitors. We are glad that the blog blesses your life. The Team. 


B Y D A V I D M c Q U E L These three life necessities cannot be acquired through wealth or riches: hope, peace, and joy. Our world today knows more heartache than good news. The number of people whose hearts are broken daily is not even reflected in the number of suicides, because it far outweighs it. Among lovers, family and relatives, colleagues, teammates, or business partners, the stories and experiences of heartbreaks cannot be documented. That is because there will be no library enough to contain its volumes. Betrayal has become a norm rather than an exception. Parents betray children and children betray parents. The intimacy among couples, largely, is cosmetic and just for a show. Our media and relation tabloids are washed with detestable and jaw-dropping stories of harm and anguish that the heart finds disturbing. We have the political scene become more clueless than ever before. Men and women in politics are offering no hope in sight. In fact, they are telling us more broadly


  B Y    D A V I D     M C Q U E L Hello Everyone!   It has been a long while. The year 2022 has finally passed. And we are still here. God is to be glorified. We absolutely give God thanks.   I tried to review the year, looking backwards at my pleasure and displeasure with the year. I also did try to see where I failed, underperformed or missed the mark both set by God or by my heart. I always like to do an honest self-appraisal. I bear in mind that either lavishing praises on myself or ignoring things that should be fixed are not to my advantage. Transparency may hurt but I stand to gain first before someone else.   Here are a few things that I came to a conclusion on: 1.       I need to make certain necessary adjustments or changes or repositioning either on my character, my commitment, my determination or my effort. This is non-negotiable. I cannot continue to do things the way I did and expect a different result. I am impressed by European football. If there is s


I'll never forget Easter 1946. I was 14, my little sister Ocy 12, and my older sister Darlene 16. We lived at home with our mother, and the four of us knew what it was like to do without many things. My dad had died five years before, leaving Mom with seven school kids to raise and no money. By 1946, my older sisters were married, and my brothers had left home. A month before Easter, the pastor of our church announced that a special Easter offering would be taken to help a poor family. He asked everyone to save and give sacrificially. When we got home, we talked about what we could do. We decided to buy 50 pounds of potatoes and live on them for a month. This would allow us to save $20 of our grocery money for the offering. Then we thought that if we kept our electric lights turned out as much as possible and didn't listen to the radio, we'd save money on that month's electric bill. Darlene got as many house and yard cleaning jobs as possible, and both of us baby sat fo


  B  Y   D  A  V  I  D   M c  Q  U  E  L Depositphotos Blog That we live in dangerous times is no revelation. However, how we navigate through it must be by revelation. We should live happy lives, glorifying God and successfully preparing our kids to face the world ahead of them successfully also. Among the many realities of today are:   The War Against Conventional Truth Truth is being replaced with feelings on a massive scale like never seen before. What we were thought while growing up as moral, biblical or civil truth is now bastardize and replaced with the lefts version of truth which is relative truth. Truth basic on emotions and sentimentalism. For a long time, promiscuity and sexual perversity was know to be immoral by all of society even those who didn’t go to church. Today, it is what you feel good that is truth.   The War Against Biblical Values It is fashionable now to dismiss any biblical view. In fact, Islamic values, Buddhist or atheist are more readily a

She plunged into the world headlong. She was not going to deprive herself anything fun.   She has had enough deprivations in life, she thought. Their parents were extremely principled and unbending conservatives who believed in nothing but hard work and success.   As the girls grew, their lives were basically planned and their goals for their future were right between the eye’s day and night addictively. As a child the routine were pretty simple: school, home then church. As she grew up, sports were lightly added and house chores.   She heard hilarious stories from classmates. Most of it was strange but lot of it projected as fun. Hanging around folks for so long and hearing the same things for long gets registered in your memory. I didn’t know then.   To me, all was meaningless jab. All
