The Winning Side

The Winning Side

By Brad Phillips Recently, I received a card from a couple who have been long-time ministry partners of PPF. Their kind note was filled with encouragement and prayers for the safety and success of our team. But what encouraged me most was how their card ended: “It’s good to know we’re on the winning side.” […]

More Dignity for Women!

More Dignity for Women!

We have been blessed with an outpouring of support for PPF’s new Dignity Drive for women. This effort, to provide our sisters living in war zones with access to safe, reusable feminine hygiene solutions, has been well received. Each kit provides a woman with a soft, hygienic solution for up to three years! On behalf […]

Nuba Borehole Update – Phase IV

Well Repair Update

Well Repair Update

We are so blessed – way beyond what we even realize. For example, when we turn on the tap in our kitchens, safe water comes out.

Now You are Light in the Lord

A Good Kind of Tired…

A Good Kind of Tired…

By Matt Chancey I’ve recently started CrossFit Training. And let me tell you, there are few better ways to feel your age! Ouch! The first few days, I was waddling like a duck everywhere. I was so sore! But I keep going back. Why? Because at the end of each session, I feel great. I […]

Err on the Side of Action

Err on the Side of Action

When people confront great challenges or needs, they’re often intimidated into silence or inaction. They justify this reaction by all sorts of good reasons: “What can I do?” “How much of an impact can I really make?” “Do I have all the information I need?” “Surely someone else better qualified should deal with this.” “I’ve […]

The Special Ops of Missions

The Special Ops of Missions

Editor’s Note:¬†Earlier this year, one of PPF’s major ministry partners asked if he could join us on a mission to the Nuba mountains. He also asked if he could bring his son, Wes, along. We asked Wes to send us his impressions about his experience. It’s encouraging to see young people like him on fire […]
