Wycliffe Bible Translators

1 in 5 people alive today are still waiting to get the Bible in their language. Bible translation is one of the most significant parts of world mission today. Wycliffe’s vision, in partnership with our supporters, is that everyone will have access to God’s word in the language that speaks to them best.The Bible changes lives – and so does the work of translating the Bible.

 

Watch the video below to discover how the impact of Bible translation ripples out beyond Christians and churches to touch the lives of whole communities.

Wycliffe recently wrote: Thank you so much your continued support and enthusiasm for Bible translation. I wanted to let you all know how very grateful and appreciative we are of your prayers and interest in the urgent need to translate the Bible for everybody.

If your congregation has any prayer requests at this time then we would greatly value hearing them please. During these past months, we have been meeting on Tuesday mornings to pray for all our friends and supporters and will gladly bring your requests before the Lord when we pray together.

Please do let me know if there is any way we can further support and serve you as a church? Whether that’s with video resources, a speaker for smaller groups, prayer resources etc.

Please pass on to the fellowship our Christian greetings and thank you again for your support. Psalm 119 v105 ‘Your word is a lamp to my feet’.

Ekisa – Rewriting the Story of Disability

Ekisa Ministries was founded in 2010 by two women, both named Emily.  Emily Henderson from Milton near Cambridge, UK and Emily Worral from the USA. It was after a number of volunteer trips to Uganda that they chose to start an organization to address the lack of care and services for children living with disabilities. The charity is a registered non-profit in the USA and is a registered NGO in Uganda.

Christian Heritage – Cambridge

Since 2001 Christian Heritage has been based at the Round Church (c.1130) in the centre of historic Cambridge. They exist to explore the relationship between faith and culture, and how Christianity has shaped Cambridge and Western civilisation. As a Church we prayerfully support Andrew and Helen Fellows, working with Christian Heritage. Andrew and Helen were previously workers at English L’Abri and members of our Church before moving to Cambridge.

 

Christian Heritage say that their aim is to give people the chance to reflect on the ‘big picture’ questions of life in a context which allows for robust, honest, critical, and courteous dialogue.

MERF recently wrote saying: We thank the church for your kind gift of £300 to the work, which I confirm has reached our bank account. The Lord has enabled courses to re-start at Lokichoggio, Kenya. All those attending from South Sudan have certificates declaring them free of COVID-19.There are only 4 students in each dorm. Hand sanitizers, masks, and individual drinking bottles have been supplied to all involved. Being unable to send teachers from Europe, at short notice African men have responded to the call to “come over and help us” at Loki - from the Nile Theological College in Juba, from the Griffen Theological Institute Kakuma and others being Reformed Baptist pastors in Kenya.

Mission Eurasia

Thank you for your generous gift (£300) towards Gift of Hope. Your support is a tremendous blessing to our School Without Walls (SWW) and other Next Generation leaders who are pressing forward through a new year of ministry. Please pray for these young believers who live in countries where religious persecution is all too common. For example, many pastors and churches in countries like Kazakhstan struggle amid government restrictions and crackdowns against Christian groups. And the COVID-19 pandemic has only made ministry more challenging. - Mission Eurasia Newsletter
