    Songs of Hope! | Noel Kenny

    Songs of Hope! | Noel Kenny

    In 1979, heroin invaded Kenny’s community in Dublin, and the singing stopped. He counted 440 funerals. But he and his wife Sharon were radically changed at the very same moment, and slowly but steadily fresh songs of hope are being sung again, be they by gangsters, drug-dealers, children and more. It’s a stunning account of decades of faithfulness on the same patch, with the ripple effect spreading throughout Dublin and to the nations.

    Wheelchair Warrior! | Linda Bridges

    Wheelchair Warrior! | Linda Bridges

    Rape, suicide, freemasonry, demon-possession, paralysis, and more… Sometimes it’s hard to believe what people can have gone through. And yet despite all the knocks, Linda’s story is one of radiant hope and vibrant joy, as she takes to the streets of Southampton in her wheelchair to love folks who have fallen through the cracks. I was left shaking my head in wonder and astonishment at her resilience and God’s grace once I reluctantly brought the interview to an end. What a story!

    Filthy Rich! | Manoj Raithatha

    Filthy Rich! | Manoj Raithatha

    At one stage, Manoj Raithatha had a huge portfolio with contracts signed on £330million of property - but he wasn’t satisfied, and he had become heartless and ruthless in equal measure. Then came the crash of 2008, plus the life of his son threatened, and his world imploded. And so began his journey to redemption… It’s a great story!
    Manoj’s story is told in his book ‘Filthy Rich: How the Property Crash Saved my Life’ which you can buy via Instant Apostle

    Living Love in Living Hell | Dave Eubank

    Living Love in Living Hell | Dave Eubank

    Former US Army Special Forces officer Dave Eubank tells of multiple near-death experiences as he risks life and limb across a number of nations - training teams to resist the military dictatorship in Myanmar, fighting against ISIS in Mosul, and also providing emergency relief and intervention in other desperately grim hotspots around the globe. He spends most of his time in Myanmar, having founded the Free Burma Rangers two decades ago as a humanitarian service movement for oppressed ethnic minorities. He gives all glory to God, and what a story it is!
    The Free Burma Rangers film on Amazon Prime is worth downloading, it had me in tears multiple times.
    Check out freeburmarangers.org to find out more and get involved.
