OUAGADOUGOU, Burkina Faso (BP) — The old chief’s thick glasses do more to magnify the filmy cataracts covering his eyes than aid his vision.

Missionary doctor in Uganda shares life in face of death

KAMPALA, Uganda (BP)–Moaning, horrible enough to stand a dog’s hair on end, erupts from the ward at the end of the hallway. White jacket shimmering in the dimly lit corridor, missionary doctor Larry Pepper heads toward the mournful sound. He pushes open the medical ward’s double doors.

Missionary brings light into bombing survivors’ darkness

NAIROBI, Kenya (BP)–Her white cane rattles as she swishes it side-to-side in front of her, searching for dips and rocks in the dirt road.

God cheats waiting vultures, rescues girl from certain death

CONAKRY, Guinea (BP)–Flies swarm around sweaty bodies as people walk up the rocky incline to the village market. People laugh and talk as they climb.

His faith overcomes fear of evil spirits in Zambia

LUSAKA, Zambia (BP)–“Evil spirits killed your children,” the witch doctor told a distraught Hastings Chipango. “But bring me 80,000 Kwancha and I’ll protect your family and you can have more children.” Children are a precious commodity in Zambia, so when two out of his three offspring died, Chipango was convinced he hadn’t done enough to […]
