At the ends of the earth, Gospel grows


Duviara, Vanuatu — From this remote village on the island of Ambae in the South Pacific, Christians made their way along a narrow trail to a stream and pool in the middle of a rainforest. There, they baptized new believers into Christ.

Randy and Sharon English, missionaries who live in American Samoa and conduct gospel campaigns across Polynesia, recently visited Ambae, part of the nation of Vanuatu, to teach and preach in the village and encourage members of Churches of Christ there. Two church members from the U.S., John Willingham and David Banks, accompanied them and assisted in the work.

“It is here that people still do things the simple way, taking life and all its joys and challenges one day at a time,” the couple wrote in a recent report. “It is here that hard work is known, and the principle of seed-sowing is trusted without exception. It is here that God’s Word has taken root and is growing.”

As the Gospel spreads, “indigenous, self-supporting congregations of the Churches of Christ are being planted, grown and prepared to take the Gospel to others in their nation,” the Englishes reported, “according to the only pattern that we have for New Testament Christianity — God’s powerful Word.” Check out more stories from around the world by clicking HERE.
