We actively support the following indviduals & organisations:
Drs Ronnie and Margaret Sim serve with Wycliffe Bible Translators teaching African students the intricacies of Bible Translation at the Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology. The aim of this work is to equip Africans to translate God’s Word into their own particular language.
They have recently introduced a PhD programme which will enable Africans to teach Africans how to undertake Bible translation.
While supporting all the work and missionaries of the Baptist Missionary Society World Mission, we are linked with two missionaries in particular - Sarah McArthur and Laura-Lee Lovering. Both Sarah and Laura-Lee work in Peru in the Amazon rain forest. Sarah is involved in plant propagation, showing what food plants can be grown in the area and in youth work.
Laura-Lee is helping to develop an Integral Mission Training Centre for pastors and church leaders from the jungle communities of the region. She also works on other community initiatives such as bio-sand water filters, eco-stoves and chicken-rearing. Although Peru's economy is growing there is great inequality in the distribution of wealth with millions still living in extreme poverty.
We remember the girls in our prayers as they strive to make life a bit easier for those living the rain forest area while bringing the Good News of a God who made "everything good" for them.
Tearfund are Christians committed to following Jesus where the need is greatest. They have a calling from God to serve those living in poverty, regardless of race, gender, nationality or religious belief. The gospel has the power to transform lives and heal communities, and they see this truth in their work every day.
Tearfund works through local churches, because they're Jesus’ body on earth, ready to care for the whole person - and the whole community - inside and out.
Africa Inland Mission is a Christian mission sending agency with a heart for Africa’s peoples. They have our roots in a small band of faithful men and women who, in 1895, ventured inland to reach Africans untouched by the gospel.
Their vision set the course for Africa Inland Mission for over 120 years, as a community called and sent to live and minister among Africa’s least reached peoples. This call still remains.
Catherine Grier is serving God amongst an unreached people group in Chad teaching English to adults.
