Mission Matters

 

Rooted In Jesus - October 2015

Ian and Sue Smale, Pete Silverwood and Dee Spencer had a very busy and inspirational time in Uganda, briefly illustrated in these pictures.


Every year we have had a harvest project to raise money for a good cause. This year our project is different. We are not raising money but raising interest – interest in the missions that we support. That is why we had the Missions Marketplace last September. It is not too late to sign up to receive information, newsletters etc, for any one or more of the mission societies that you feel drawn to. This information will feed our prayers and encourage our giving.

For more information contact any of the people named above. If you would like to get on to any of the mailing lists for any of the above, please let Ian Smale know and he will be delighted to pass on your name. Behind each society named above is someone or a number of people who have gone out on a limb for God, taking risks, making sacrifices, in the great adventure that is God’s kingdom. God invites us to join them in this adventure. They need us and when we become partners with them we find, to our surprise, that we need them as well. Home groups are adopting mission interests as well and the response from home groups has been very encouraging.
