Reaching Out To A City’s Orphans (The Juarez Miracle part 3)

Are you ready to be blessed? Here it comes! We just concluded five world-changing days of non-stop transformation ministry in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. I’m glad to report that the former murder capital of the world is emerging as an extraordinary transformation prototype. Last Thursday, the Avanza Sin Tranza (Thrive without Bribes in English) program was […]

Thriving Without Bribes (The Juarez Miracle part 2)

I am fascinated by the respectful way Jesus always treated sinners. No wonder He did not refute the accusation that He was a friend of sinners. The kindness that leads to repentance For instance, He told Zaccheus (a chief sinner) that he owned something that Jesus needed – a bed and a roof for the […]

MacArthur’s orders to Wainwright were very […]

Ed Silvoso: How Far Can You See?

When I was a brand-new believer, my pastor told me I should share Christ with everyone I came in touch with at all times. No exceptions. He emphasized that if I did not do it, I was responsible for their eternal demise. I believed my pastor, and I wanted to obey him, but during my […]

CHILDREN ARE THE BEST RECORDERS BUT…

Children are the best recorders but the worst computers. Everything they hear, they remember. But they don’t have the maturity to process it. One of the things I appreciate about my wife Ruth is that she set very high standards for the conversations we had when hosting guests in our home. Being into reconciliation and […]
