Dispelling the dark . . . Posted about ago

Even during a pandemic, our "Light" can shine for Jesus! Thank you for being that light and helping to keep that light spreading throughout the world with your donations and prayers! Hundreds of families have received food supply kits, medicine refills along with much needed prayer and the Gospel! Our national partners and their families have continued ministry with our support and encouragement from here!

Thank you!


As a child in north central Nigeria, I have vivid memories of going to the Night Market in our small town of Keffi. There was no electricity, only small twinkling lights at each vendor’s small table. Some vendors had lanterns, others used homemade small lanterns from Peak Evaporated Milk cans pictured here.

It is only a little over 2 inches tall. We put kerosene in it along with a wick, lit it with a stick from an ever-burning fire and there was light! Not a lot of light but enough to “turn off the dark".

It has a crudely made handle and wick holder, but it did its job: shining light to dispel the darkness! Those little twinkling lights broke through what seemed like total darkness in the market.

This little lantern has been mine since the late 1950s …yep! It has been sitting in a cabinet for many years. I pulled it out a few weeks ago as a reminder that while some may believe we are in the darkest times, our job is not to complain about the darkness.

Our job is to be a little twinkling light to dispel the darkness. Jesus made it very clear: Be a light guiding people to Him!
