Resourcing churches for world mission
Global Connections is a growing network of over 300 UK churches and agencies with a passion for mission. Drawing on this wealth of experience, together we seek to inspire churches to be engaged in mission both in the UK and overseas. Whatever you are looking for - inspiring articles, good practice guidelines, prayer information - you will find a wealth of material and links to others.
From Practical to Spiritual: After the destructive years of the civil war in the Central African Republic infrastructure is worse than ever. In order for Bible translation work to move forwards some mundane needs have to be met. We need city power to charge up computer batteries; the back-up generator at the office to work; for training of translators despite the limitations and for no deaths or major illnesses. Please cover these in prayer as we seek to get the word out to those in the Central African Republic.

Impoverished Peru: Over a quarter of the population in the highlands of Peru face poverty, chronic malnutrition and diminishing crop yields due to climate change. Pray for the church, which is also affected by these issues, to be and share the ‘good news’ in the face of these challenges. Pray for the numerous rural Quechua churches, that the diverse biblical training initiatives in the region can prosper, that new leaders can be effectively discipled, that churches can move out from legalism and be renewed by the Spirit.

Friendship Without Vision: Please pray for people living with sight loss across the UK, particularly those who feel alone, left out, or no longer able to take part in things they used to enjoy. Pray that the network of support for people in these situations will continue to grow wider and stronger, reaching more and more people. Often what people need most is companionship, friendship and adequate provision of tools that will enable them to participate fully in all areas of life. Pray that through such friendships and partnerships people will discover Christian faith and lead fulfilling Christian lives.

Flying for Fun in Ecuador: A new Kodiak aircraft is flying for fun in Ecuador! Perfectly adapted for jungle flying the aircraft recently transported 200 children supported by Compassion to a camp. ‘It was so much fun to fly the kids in the Kodiak for the first time’ writes Pilot Chad Irwin who made several trips back and forth. ‘In some cases it was the first time, we had even landed in their community!’ Give thanks that our aircraft can bring fun and encouragement as well as hope and healing to remote communities! Pray for the young lives touched by youth camps in Ecuador and other countries. That each and every child would come to know Christ as their Saviour and grow in their faith.
