Winter edition of Free magazine out now!

December 18, 2015

In the December 2015/January 2016 issue of Free:

A RIDICULOUSLY GOOD LIFE!

NICK VUJICIC wondered why he’d been born with no limbs. Didn’t God care about him? What purpose could his life possible have? But God had a special reason for making Nick the way He did. CHRIS NICOLSON tells his story and reviews Stand Strong: You Can Overcome Bullying, Nick’s book on bullying for teens.

MEET THE A.I.M. M.K.s

DANIEL WILSON and MEGAN HAZARD are both MKs − ‘missionary kids’ − living in Kijabe in Kenya. On a recent trip to Africa, RUTH BOX met up with them to chat about their lives, and the things they love best about life in Kenya.

HOMESICK? WHO, ME?

Leaving home can bring challenges that you just didn’t see coming! ML STONE reports on buses, and other unlikely things that might cause problems when you move out for the first time.

THE MOST IMPORTANT THING

JENNY PEGG draws on her own experiences to talk about the one thing that’s vital in any life-time relationship: a relationship with God.

KEEP IT REAL!

Free has some practical suggestions to help you think more deeply about how you should approach Christmas 2015.

WHEN PARENTS SPLIT

PAULA WHITE has no easy answers to the problems caused by parents separating, but she does know the best place to go for help when you’re caught up in a situation that you have no control over.

FOOTBALL SHORTS

TV pundit Alan Hansen once said: ‘You don’t win anything with kids’, and lived to regret his words. In the latest round of Football Shorts, DAVID GRAY considers the benefits of starting young − and he’s not talking about football!

RESCUED!

There was a reason God brought the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt, and there’s a reason God wants to set you free from sin. In the fifth part of our Bible study on Exodus, DAN PATERSON explains what it is.

THERE’S MORE!

You’ll also find photos from the 2015 Big Free Rally and this year’s two football camps; a favourite Bible verse from Jenny Pegg; and Open Door’s 2016 plan to raise awareness of what it’s like to ‘live like a refugee’.
