Seeing from within an Oppressive Society
by Gusztinné Tulipán Mária
Gusztinné Tulipán Mária was born to Christian parents in Hungary at a time in that country’s history when Christ followers were being persecuted under Communist rule. By the 1990’s, the culture had begun to change in monumental ways. Maria was an eyewitness to great events. As she reflects on her years serving as an ordained elder in the Church of the Nazarene, Mária says this about her homeland: “I do like the complexity of the ugly and the good together…and discovering the touch of God’s hand through it all.”
2. Living Side by Side
Serving the People of Cactus, Texas
by Jenni Monteblanco
Cactus, Texas, is a community of 4,000 people and 40 languages. Many Cactus residents are refugees who have fled war, persecution, or natural disasters. Others are immigrants, documented and undocumented. Most are grappling with a new culture, a new language, and what life in America means for them. In the midst of this beautiful diversity, Cactus Nazarene Ministry Center exists to extend the love of God to the people of this small community in tangible and life-changing ways.
Reaching the Unreached of Ethiopia
by Howie Shute
The Mursi people of Ethiopia are a community of nomads who were unreached with the gospel message as of the late 20th century. God called missionary Howie Shute to change that. Howie and others prayed together that God would remove barriers so that the good news of Jesus would be proclaimed and received by the Mursi. Read about the incredible God-ordained partnerships that brought people from around the globe to work through the Church of the Nazarene to reach out to Ethopia’s Mursi.
A Library for the World
by Tammy Condon
A shared passion to resource pastors and leaders around the world. A global collaborative team from a broad range of disciplines. Cutting-edge technology. God’s provision. Together, these elements culminated in a story of innovation that is bridging the gap between those with abundant resources and those with few. The Wesleyan-Holiness Digital Library delivers content in a variety of languages and formats to remote locations across the globe. Committing to the development of this one-of-a-kind library required strategic leadership, bold initiative, and the hand of God.
