This was a special time spent to gather over a meal as this family shared with me how God was calling them to leave their jobs and serve Him in the Northern part of Serbia. The young man in the front is called Stefan, he is so on fire for the Lord and serving Him full time. He is getting married in May to a lovely Christian called Daniela.

These two girls take turns working in the laundry, Saeedeh is from Germany comes to help as often as she can, India is a refugee and loves the Lord so she has no problem in helping out. They do 100 loads of washing a day. All the team I spoke with enjoy what they are doing and to see smiles on the refugees faces makes it all worth while. My time at the camp was far too short so will be returning again in July. They need more volunteers. If you feel you would love to spend two to three weeks helping out, please contact me and I will put you in touch with the right people for all the details.

Serbia Report 1

My return to Bristol a few days ago from Serbia was very hard after a very emotional trip and I could not say goodbye without a tear running down my face. Daniel and Katka, (photo above) meeting them for the first time after 54 years was just out of this world. Daniel had a stroke two years ago and I thought he was going to have a heart attack there and then, he was so excited, needless to say we spent special time together. God preserved them through those difficult days.

Erdevik - Northern Serbia

This trip has been so emotional, meeting up with people for the first time since I was here in the Sixties, many risked their lives and their families to hide me. In some cases I have been so drained before even speaking. Erdevik is where the camp site is, this year they will be holding two weeks of camp. Please pray for workers to help in this task. Many give up their holidays and after one week they do really need a break. - Tony (the text in the photo is 'God is Love')

Austria - 1st Feb 2020

Gerhard Neu, Stefan Hoefler and myself.

This was a great time of fellowship walking in the hills of Austria with the sun shining upon us, sharing what God has been doing in different parts of the world and also in our lives. It soon became apparent we all had areas in our lives which needed Prayer. Fellowship continued over lunch and then it was time to say goodbye, we all felt spiritually stronger and very blessed spending this time together.

Stefan works with O A C - Open air Campaigners on the streets of Austria with sketch boards, Gerhard (in the middle) has a full time job but also helps in the church. Please pray for them.
Great fellowship, great prayer time and great fun - Tony.

Enns, Austria

It was a privilege and a blessing to be involved in the service as Christoph, Nina, Tobias, Aaron, Elise and Elia were sent out with the Blessings of the church who also prayed God’s Blessing upon them, both are leaving good jobs here in Austria to go and serve the Lord in Honduras, Latin America. Christoph will be flying planes for Missionary Air Group and Nina is a doctor. Please pray for them as they take this big step away from security of a home and jobs. Also pray for the children as they adjust to a different way of life. I hope to have a short video up on the web site which will give more information. Thank you - Tony

Poole Dorset & London

Last week I spent three wonderful days in Poole, Dorset with Solomon and his wife Rachel. We were able to take two nice long walks along the seafront giving us time to discuss further projects for India and also the dialects they want to translate the Missing Peace booklet into. We hear many stories coming out of India about how the Christians are being treated but, amidst all this the Christians are alive and want to share His love with others. It was also a special time which we used for prayer and fellowship, we haven’t done this for a very long time. Left Saturday morning for London….


Trinity Tabernacle, Bristol

Last Sunday, I had the joy and privilege of sharing in the service at Trinity Tabernacle, Bristol. Please pray for the Pastor there, his name is Andy Paget and his wife Gale. They are doing a great work there, besides all their commitments to the church and a number of organisations, he also spends time in the Middle East serving Our Lord.


It’s been a wonderful time over the Christmas period to spend time with the family, more so as my son and family flew in from Australia, the grand children enjoyed all being together. Now we are in the New Year and looking forward to greater things in 2020. My prayer is for you all that where ever you are and what ever you are doing for Our Lord that you will all be greatly Blessed, I too, am looking for greater things to happen in the Balkans, we have a Wonderful Lord and prayers are being answered.

Christmas Message

Stacks Image 4228
As we draw near to Christmas, my prayer is that you will all have a Very Happy Christmas with Family and Friends. His Name shall be called JESUS for He shall save the people from their sins, today, 1000’s of people around the world are still coming to know Him as their Saviour, every day we hear of people being saved.

We all know that this is a time of PEACE and remembering OUR SAVIOURS BIRTH, however, let us take time out to remember and pray for those who are going through difficult times. Those suffering illness, bereavement, caring for love ones or being on their own, my two brothers are also going through difficult family situations. Also, please remember our Brothers and Sisters who are going through persecution for Our Saviour, wherever they are, that they may know His Peace and Comfort this Christmas.

My prayers are for you all as we draw near to the end of 2019, I thank God for everyone of you and your prayer support, for 2020 my prayer is that we may all have a closer walk with Him and look to Him for greater things.

Firstly, I would like to say a great thank you to Avonmouth Evangelical Church for arranging this, Andrew and Matthew Steele led the music and Philip Steele gave a talk on the family starting off with a box of Family Circle biscuits and then bringing the different characters into in and then close with the birth of Jesus.

Hot News from Austria

O A C (Open Air Campaigners)

Stefan Hofler writes: - recently a young lady walked into a meeting where Stefan was preaching and afterwards wanted to speak with Stefan. 3 years ago she stopped at a open air meeting in Linz (Austria) she was so encouraged at what she heard and talked with one on the team members for some time. Shortly afterwards, she recommitted her life to follow Jesus. Today, she is married with a child and active in a Bible Believing Church. O A C have a very full programme as they lead up to Christmas – please pray for them.

There is so much to give Thanks and Praise to God, only in eternity will we see the results of our all our prayers and labours for Him. Thank you again for your prayers – God Bless - Tony

I've just received news that the first dialect- Marathi is now ready for printing and 10,000 copies will roll off the presses soon for use in Northern India, of course we welcome it to be used anywhere. 15,000 copies of the Hindi version will soon arrive here in the UK. Talks are now under way to start work on the PUNJABI language.

Hungary – We were praying that this would have been printed ready for the New Year but some translations are more difficult than others, however, we are now aiming for Easter, please pray to this end.

God Bless – Brother Tony
