Teams summer 2010

Please pray for 2010 summer Mission Teams:

During July and August of 2010 there are proposed teams to Burundi, Kenya and India, then a further school team in October 2010. Please pray with us that God allows us to achieve great things as a result of these teams. Many of those who participate have little experience of a Christian team of any kind and so we would ask that you would pray for God to touch and challenge all concerned.

Please also pray that our teams are filled up and that those who are seeking support to fund their trip will be suitably provided for.

Mission Team - Burundi 2009!

Pray for the Burundi Team:
A team of 15 people will head out to Burundi on 14th July to support our partners in Burundi Rema Ministries. The team comprises a dentist, a doctor and three further medics, young people and older people and will be involved in medical/dental practice as well as evangelism, youth and children's work and training for church leaders.

Please pray for:
  • Safe Travel from Scotland via Amsterdam, Nairobi to Bujumbura and within Burundi for the period of 2-3 weeks.
  • The many who will come for medical/dental treatment that the practitioners will have the energy to treat those who come and the wisdom to know how to proceed in difficult circumstances.
  • Those team members who have not been to Africa before that they are not too seriously affected by culture shock.
  • The many who will come to hear the Gospel that they may decide to follow Jesus and that their lives will be dramatically changed.
  • Those who give testimony, perform songs and drama and who preach will find God's inspiration to share appropriate material.
  • That the Rema team (MI Partners) will benefit and be blessed by the team experience too.
  • A positive and safe experience for everyone involved.

Carrs return to the UK!

Return to Blighty!

Pray for Christians in Pakistan:

Churches burned and Christians murdered in Pakistan:
News recently received by Mission International from contacts in Pakistan relate stories of Muslims meeting out cruel abuses on Christians and churches in the Punjab region. Under reporting by local press agencies and the fact that Government agencies have largely ignored the plight of the Christians and the crimes of those carrying out the abuses is further evidence that Pakistan is in a crisis.The recent reports received claim that churches have been burned down and many Christians have been killed, in particular young men, although some reports detail rape and murder of young women.

Mission International intends to send financial support to Pakistan to help purchase basics like food, clothing and shelter for those whose homes and churches have been sacked. If you are able to help by supporting this endeavour please donate by clicking here or donate to 'Pakistan Appeal' via PayPal at the top right of this page.
