Corrientes Course: "The biggest lesson that I leaned at Corrientes was the transparency in the lives of my mentors and the reflection of Jesus in each one of them.”
This is just one comment from a Latino missionary going through the Corrientes programmes (Spanish for ‘Currents’). Corrientes is a missionary training programme using the tool of individual mentoring, and many Latinos are now serving the Lord worldwide after going through the course. Pray for Corrientes students as they prepare for service overseas, that the Lord will lead them to the place where he can use them most.

New Opportunities in Greater Hardship: Many countries in the Middle East and North Africa currently find themselves trying to balance greater political and economic freedom with the pressure to monitor, restrain, and contain Islamic extremism. Alternatively, they are seeking to promote greater openness without either alienating the conservative majority or empowering religious extremists. The region continues to be in the throes of change, which brings insecurity but also offers new opportunities for ministry and justice. Pray for believers in the region who suffer in silence, cut off from family, and isolated from Christian fellowship, that God would meet with them today.

Encouragement from the Word.: We need theological and biblical education, we need to know and apply God’s revelation to us.’ That’s the constant message heard from church leaders as they teach and preach the good news in Mexico where the Protestant Church faces a critical few years. The government is about to pass a law that will require church leaders to have a BA in Theology. Few of the officially registered 55,000 pastors have any kind of theological/biblical training. Latin Link workers are part of a team developing a new school of theology to meet this need. Pray for God’s favour on those theological colleges seeking to provide the necessary training to pastors. Pray also that church leaders in Mexico would fully learn the truths of the Bible and how to apply them to people’s lives.
