Teams Training Day - this weekend!

30th May '09 - Teams training Day:

Please pray for those who will be attending the Teams training Day to be held near Edinburgh on Saturday 30th May.

The 15 member team will get together to learn about their trip and how to deal with some of the issues they are likely to encounter. The team ranges in age from 16 years old to those in their 70s. The team will be involved in primarily evangelism and support to the church, children's ministry and project work.

Please pray that all of the travel arrangements work out for the trip and that as we go god will really bless us as we obey and serve Him.

Carrs return to the UK!

Return to Blighty!

Please pray for Charles & Val Carr and their family as they return to the UK. The family have spent 10 months in Burundi serving at the Mission International project The Hope Centre. Charles & Val have done a wonderful job planning, building and managing the project from the ground up, they have seen every brick made and laid and have also helped with the fundraising and raising the profile of the project and that of Mission International.

Mission International is so grateful for the selfless way in which this family has gone and served in a strange country and culture. Please pray for them as they begin their new life in Lancaster in England.

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.
