MIKE DUFFY

Amsterdam, The Netherlands - Serving with Christar (www.christar.org)

 

 

Mike became a Christian in 1976, the second day of College at Truman State University. After college he went on to Dallas Seminary and earned a Masters in Theology in 1988. He became a Fireman/Paramedic in Dallas from 1989-1993.

 

In 1994 Mike went to Holland with Christar as a missionary to reach Hindustani immigrants.

 

The people we work with were originally from India. However when slavery was abolished, Holland got people from India, Indonesia and China to work in the sugar cane fields located in Dutch Guiana. In 1975 Dutch Guiana became independent and became Surinam. At that time people could choose to stay in Surinam or come to Holland as citizens. About half of the population came to Holland and they have continued to come since that time.

 

We started having meetings on Sundays in 1996 with some people who came to Christ. We have grown through the years slowly, but spiritually we have several people that are mature well grounded believers. We did not have men for the longest time but we now have a men's group of 5 including two missionaries. One of the men is very mature and another one has been growing and leads the music in our services on Sundays. 80% of the people we work with are Hindu and 20% of the population is Muslim.

 

We used to meet in our homes but in the last few years we have rented a room in a Baptist church. Our main strategy is making contacts and friendships with Hindustanies and telling them about Christ. A major factor in this is the people in our church reaching out to their families and friends. They have started doing that which has greatly increased our witness as a church.

De Ontmoeting

 

As I mentioned last month, Sherwin and Henk will be preaching while I am gone, as well as a student from Tyndale seminary. I am encouraged with this step in our church planting process. This is the first time that the church has not had a missionary leading it since it began. This, of course, is our goal. As they say, “the goal is to work ourselves out of a job.” I am so grateful to Sherwin and Henk for their willingness to take on the responsibilities for five months.

 

In Christ,

Mike Duffy
