New Year 2011

It is at this time of year that our minds turn to the future and to what God wants of us as the New Year unfolds.   It is true to say that God has been good to us in 2010 and we can be sure that His grace and favour is promised in the new year too.
Part of our service to the Lord is to pray.   It is often the most difficult area of a Christian's life, making time to pray, knowing what to pray about and identifying God's will and purpose for our lives.   We can be sure that if we pray God will speak to us and will guide us for the future.
As the new year opens and as 2011 progresses we would appreciate your prayers for the work in which we are involved.

  • Evangelism - Our mission teams make every effort to share the Good News about Jesus wherever they go.  The environment is not always easy to cope with but the commitment is there to allow often un-reached people groups to know of the great love of Jesus.
  • Discipleship - Jesus calls us to be disciples and to make disciples.   This call is so necessary in the developing world where resources for pastors and church leaders are so limited.   Please pray that we can help resource in terms of teaching as well as in terms of literature to give local pastors the necessary materials to serve and teach in their churches.
  • Projects - Supporting the poor through small, medium and large projects is key to our purpose as we obey God's call to the world.   The funding required to provide a small income generating project or a large dwelling, medical, training or educational resource is so necessary to bring infrastructure and also hope to communities in great need.  Please pray that God makes a way for us to provide what is necessary in support of poor and needy communities around the world.
Please let us know if you are praying for us.   If you would like a representative of Mission International to come to speak about our work in your locality we would be delighted to discuss this with you.
