Cambodia Anglicans Chart a New Path

Space is tight in the Phnom Penh chapel where Cambodian Anglican Christians have gathered to worship on a Sunday morning.  “If you can’t find a seat, just stand for a few minutes and seats will open up when the children go to their Sunday school,” advises Pastor Jesse Blaine, a Khmer-speaking American who leads the congregation...

World Mission Sunday Resources All in One Place

When I was 11 years old, my dad took me to a missions event at our local church where I heard stories and saw photos of the adventures of one of our supported missionaries based in Africa. It was my first cross-cultural exposure and it planted a seed in my heart that has been growing ever since. Four decades later some of my dearest friends are from four other continents! Suffice it to say that that one “world mission event” at a small local church changed the very course of my life by broadening...

Letter from the Archbishop: World Mission Sunday

This year World Mission Sunday is February 4th, the fifth Sunday after the Epiphany.

Healing and Restoration in Northern Uganda

In 2005, Humanitarian Aid Relief Trust (HART) received a desperate request by a young Ugandan from the Acholi Tribe for help as his community had suffered frequent attacks by the Lord’s Resistant Army (LRA).  Northern Uganda suffered 20 years of terrorism and persecution from 1987 to mid-2008, in which countless civilians were massacred, 2 million people were displaced, homes were destroyed and at least 25,000 young people were abducted and...

The Fruit of 'Yes!'

We call it the 'Oh-No!' principle... that moment just after the Spirit stirs you with a genuine call of God... that moment when your flesh kicks in and pulls back on the reins. Moses had an 'Oh-No!' moment at the burning bush. Gideon had one when God called him into battle for his people. Most of the prophets initially responded to their own calls with an 'Oh-No!'. Peter had an 'Oh-No!' reaction when he heard Jesus describe the suffering that awaited him in Jerusalem...

Fire and Faithfulness: The Anglican Church in Brazil

Fire, passion, creativity, expansion, faithfulness, youthful zeal. These are some of the words that describe what I experienced during my time with the Anglican Church in Brazil, where with much excitement and anticipation, we began the preparations for the Caminemos Juntos: Americas conference which will be held there in October of this year. The diocese of Recife (recently renamed the Anglican Church in Brazil-Diocese of Recife) has planted 35 congregations in the last twelve years and is...

Networking: The Future of Missions

In the launching of our redesigned website, we took care to make sure that the story of our history was preserved and presented with accuracy and honor. As we thought about our 43 years of helping Anglicans live as mission-minded Christians, we began to see three distinct eras of our ministry’s life. The first era was, of course, led by our founders Rev. Walter and Louise Hannum...
