Share This Post

The editor-in-chief of World Magazine, Marvin Olasky, always is on the lookout for examples of Christians bringing restoration, healing and blessings to their broken communities using local resources and steadfast faith in God. He again has chosen to feature DNA partners in Africa in World Magazine.

World mag cover_Page_1In 2012, the magazine presented DNA affiliate Chris Ampadu as the only non-American nominee for the Hope Award for Effective Compassion and, in the latest issue, seed projects facilitated in Uganda by DNA affiliate Transforming Nations Alliance were highlighted:

“Seed projects demonstrate to Ugandans that God can use meager local resources to bless a community. The projects demonstrate that Ugandans don’t have to wait for outsiders to come and fix problems, and that God cares about the physical well-being of His children, not just the spiritual” (p. 38).

One Pastor’s Story: Overcoming Challenges Inside and Outside the Church with Blaine Braden

In a day and age when our churches are undergoing increasing pressure from culture to sit down and be quiet, how do pastors balance clear biblical preaching while also connecting its principles to our current cultural climate? We have all seen pastors who lean too heavily on engaging in the culture at the expense of the Scripture, or those who purely preach the Word without ever connecting it to the congregation’s lives. Pastor Blaine Braden from Eastmont Church in Oregon shares his thoughts on staying grounded and relevant as the church in a post-Christian culture.

Healing the Poverty Mindset pt. Two with Tim & Terry Andrews

Imagine working tirelessly year after year to bring development to a community that vacillates between feast and famine, where some people struggle with chronic malnourishment. Still, no amount of money, planning, or technology ever seems to help the community change. Even after working with people for decades, they still have yet to embrace better crop selection and storage methods, and the middleman seems to take whatever profit could exist. Until you begin to see reality from an entirely different perspective. Once you share it with these communities, change begins to happen rapidly. Learn about this change firsthand from Tim Andrews as he shares his 30 years of experience working in the African relief and development world.
