Mission – Alternative advent calendar

How can someone call on the one they have not believed in? How can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? For over a year, 10 global Christian mission organisations have been working together under the #HowWillTheyHear campaign, which seeks to respond to Paul’s questions in Romans 10:14 by proclaiming Christ amongst refugee and migrant communities. The second 10:14 prayer initiative began this October. It committed to God the mission work of reaching refugees with the light and hope of Jesus. Thousands of Christians around the world committed to praying for...

Mission – Bible camp defies statistics

Twenty-seven young people mostly from one-parent families chose to follow the Lord Jesus at a Bible camp in Peru. Arriving with a back-pack full of expectations and enthusiasm, 66 youths in total between 12 and 16 years old attended the camp in Comas, a deprived area of Lima, the capital of the South American country. The camp organisers Siloam Christian Ministries said a heartening 41 per cent of those who attended are looking to the future with hope after the camp, the theme of which was ‘Our Eternal Father’ and which held special meaning for the underprivileged youths who attended. Most were from one-parent or...

SASRA, the Soldiers’ and Airmen’s Scripture Readers Association, has been organising 100 days of prayer leading up to Remembrance Day. According to the SASRA website the organisation is ‘hoping that about 600 will participate across the six SASRA “regions”, 100 or so in each region.

Mission – Kosovo

A trip to a barber where he had been once before, gave OM evangelist ‘Peter’ (name changed to protect his identity), the opportunity for friendship and gospel conversation in Kosovo. There were several men in the shop, friends of the owner, just sitting around talking and having coffee. When his haircut was finished, the men invited him to sit with them for a bit. They were talking about politics and Peter asked them if they believed there is hope for Kosovo. They doubted that there is, unless the country could get younger, educated politicians who are not corrupt. Peter responded by explaining to them what...

Mission – Sheffield Pregnancy Centre

The Sheffield Pregnancy Advice Centre (PAC) is preparing to apply for the government approval, which is given by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).  If CQC approval is granted, the centre can advertise free ultrasound scans, and the whole operation can then move up ‘several notches’ on every front. A reason to give thanks is that a lady called Paulina has made contact with the centre to help. Paulina is training as a diagnostic sonographer at a university and she is a committed Christian and committed to Reformed doctrine. She and another lady, Maria, are set to begin the application for the CQC. Another reason to...

Mission – Mission in Ukraine

‘I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night comes, when no man can work’ (John 9:4). God had reminded me several times of this Scripture before I went to Ukraine for a missions trip from 5 March to 15 April. Jesus had limited time to do the work when he was in the world. During the trip, I also felt the urgency of doing God’s work, as we also have limited time. Limitations might be due to changes in the environment or the shortness of human life. Ukraine has many orphans. One of Operation Mobilisation’s (OM’s) ministries...

Mission – New app to help Africa’s pastors

African Pastors Fellowship (APF) has launched a mobile phone app in East Africa. The eVitabu app puts a mobile library of theological resources into the hands of rural pastors for the first time.

It is estimated that more than three million churches in the developing world are led by people with little or no qualifications for that responsibility. In Africa, it is reckoned that as many as 90 per cent of pastors have never received even...
