2012 Teams - please pray!

Mission International is sending three teams during the summer of 2012.

  1. Burundi/Rwanda
  2. Haiti
  3. Ghana
All of our teams will be travelling to serve alongside Mission International partners in what will be difficult circumstances.   

The Burundi team are predominantly a Mission Medics team, Hugh Henderson (MI director) will also be involved in church leadership training in Burundi and as the Mission Medics element of the team return home he will continue on to spend time with partners in Cyangugu in Rwanda.

Our base location in Haiti is in the city of Ouanaminthe, where teams will serve amongst an urban poor community developing ministry amongst some of Haiti's poorest people.

The village of Zuarungu (Near Bolgatanga) in the NE sector of Ghana.   The work we have been doing there with our partners is to help develop a new health centre and a school.

Pray for us!

Mission International needs prayer all the time.   We are working in areas where we face, along with those we support who are personally going through it in the developing world, many difficulties.   These may seem insignificant at times for those of us who live in the relative security of the west, however they do take their toll.

One big challenge we face happens on an almost daily basis.   Almost every day we receive requests from someone in the world who is asking for help.   They may ask for some support in providing a water well for their community, or they may ask for a Bible or other study materials.   They may ask for a team to go and help them share God's Word in their communities.  Whatever it is they ask for our biggest challenge is to let them down gently as we say "no, I'm sorry we just don't have the funding, the resources or the personnel to help at the moment".

Of course there are many to whom we say yes!   Our supporters and donors work hard and give well to help us to say yes more times than ever before, however when the 'no answer' is the only one available then it causes us great sadness.

Please pray that God provides us with funding, personnel and resources in such a way that we can extend what we are doing so well in the places we already work, to other new projects around the world.

Thank you for praying for us

Pastor Tom Opiyo - Pakistan Trip

Pastor Tom Opiyo has been invited to go to Pakistan to share the Good News there.   This trip is a wonderful opportunity for him, however it is not without danger.   In recent days the minister who is responsible for minority groups within Pakistan and a Christian was shot dead in his car near his home.

Please pray for pastor Tom as he makes this trip and for the many Pakistani Christians who are now facing a very uncertain future.

Items for prayer:

Please pray for us!
All of us at Mission International are grateful for those who pray for us on a regular basis.   We agree that our ministry  and service would not be successful if you were not praying for us.

News & Announcements:
We post items on the News & Announcements page on a regular basis and so if you need to be kept up to date with regard to prayer, this would be a good place to begin.

The recruitment, training and deployment of mission teams is a central part of the work that we do.   Please pray for quality hard-working team members to apply and pray for those to whom we minister, that God would meet with them and prepare them for His service.   Please also for our safety as we travel and minister in often difficult circumstances.

Contact us:
If you would like to let us know you are praying regularly or would like to ask a question on the work in which we are involved, please contact us on mail@mission-international.org
