Earlier today officials in Haiti announced the death toll to be more than 230,000 people–a number which is expected to rise in the weeks ahead.

The incredible number of shattered families have led many to look for ways to reach out to the growing numbers of orphans in that country. I recently spoke with Doug Phillips, President of Vision Forum Ministries, who with a small team traveled to Haiti to participate in rescue efforts at a number of orphanages destroyed in the quake.

If you liked to watch Doug’s reports from the field, they are available through his Vimeo channel.

20 years ago Matthias Media began in Australia, deciding to focus only on publishing ministry resources to assist the church in gospel growth. Traditional business models might suggest diversification and wider market appeal would be more successful, but this publishing company has grown into a multinational group that is having a huge impact on the church worldwide.

Guests include:

Tony Payne, Publishing Director of Matthias Media
Rev. Phillips Jensen, Dean of Sydney, Sr. Minister at the St. Andrews Cathedral, Director of Ministry Training and Development for the Diocese of Sydney, Australia

Earlier this week was the annual observance of World AIDS Day. In recent years a lot of attention has been given to dealing with the wide-spread problem of HIV/AIDS in Africa—primarily focusing on prevention, medical advancements and education. While these programs have been successful in lowering the number of cases, they often fall short of dealing with the broad scope of the problem.

This feature reports on what Wycliffe International is doing to reach out to those suffering with HIV/AIDS and how they minister to the whole person in the process.

Guests include:

Robin Rempel, Uganda Literacy and Scripture Use Coordinator, Wycliffe
Lydia Teera, Uganda Missionary for Wycliffe International
Timothy Bandirana, Coordinator of the Bwisi Translation and Literacy Team for Wycliffe

The resource Konde’s Story is available online.

Over the last month, many stations across the Moody Network have been involved in a fund-raising campaign with Wycliffe Bible Translators.  The Last Languages Campaign seeks to introduce the Word of God into the remaining 2400 languages of the world.

Once a translation has been completed there are many ministry partners who come along side Wycliffe to see these translations get into the hearts and minds of a community.  One such ministry partner, Faith Comes By Hearing.  Morgan Jackson is the ministry’s Director.
