Change Then. Change Now.
The Bible is full of people who experienced transformation upon meeting Jesus.
Through Him, the blind gained their sight, the paralysed got up and walked. He even called people back from the dead.
Jesus’ miracles are not limited to the pages of the Bible, though. He is transforming lives today and inviting people like Nigel, Catea, Ahmet, Samuel as well as you and me to be a part of His plan to reach the nations.
There are billions of people who don’t yet know Christ’s love, but that, too, can change through Jesus. He is using His followers around the world to touch people’s lives by offering them the hope, love, joy and peace only found in Him.
Be a part of the change.

Serving amidst suffering
When his country in South Asia was hit particularly hard by the second wave of the coronavirus, Samuel* and other Jesus followers started reaching out to people in their community, offering prayer and, in some cases, food relief packages. "The Lord blessed that," he said. "We saw new fellowships forming. In all of our lives, we have never shared the gospel with so many people."
An amazing spiritual journey
Ahmet* grew up in a small Turkish village. From a young age, he remembers pondering the purpose of life and having a spirit that “was always like a restless boat without an anchor.” Years later, while living in South Africa, Ahmet met Jesus followers for the first time and asked them to take him to church.
Sent back home to love the unloved
A small church in Moldova recently started delivering warm meals to elderly people in the community. Driven by another member of the church, Catea is the one who delivers the food to ten people five days a week. Initially, the recipients were sceptical – wondering if the meals were really free and how long they would last. But having Catea visit reliably each week has built up trust and started relationships.
From chains to hope
Though Nigel, from South Africa, stopped going to church at a young age, his family never stopped reminding him that he needed Jesus. "They didn't just speak the gospel to me, but they lived it out for me. They had peace, joy and love," Nigel said. Years later, Nigel’s brother helped lead him back to God and, from that moment on, Nigel was a changed man.
