A one paragraph CV

As you know, Crossroad’s vision is God’s Word in today’s world. God’s children must be helped to use his Word at life’s crossroads. We don’t discuss themes, but walk verse by verse through the Bible. Sometimes, when Paul is direct and calls a spade a spade, we have to deal with that too, even if […]

When hardship comes knocking

Let’s start with a few difficult questions: How much pain are you prepared to suffer for your faith? How much are you prepared to be tortured for your faith? Will you die for your faith? Are you prepared to see your children, your loved ones, die for your faith? I’m hesitant to attempt to answer […]

Hold on in hard times

A while ago, a friend of mine asked me to pray with him for wisdom. The work they do is very hard to find and they needed to land a big contract to survive. He asked for wisdom, so that they could enter the correct figure in each block of the tender. They calculated everything […]

God will never abandon you

We’re on a depression awareness tour in Namibia. As a tourist, one sees the country differently. You hear the concerns about the country’s economy and can actually identify with that, because the levels of anxiety are quite high in our country. We don’t know exactly what the future holds for the country. But again and […]

Believing differently is also fine
