It’s not an uncommon perception that missionaries no longer need to be sent from here (the United Kingdom) to there (the rest of the world). Eddie Arthur explores some of the questions and myths that surround this perception.

Latest prayer points

Ethiopia
September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 30 - Ethiopia - Life in Abundance: Ethiopia is going through a time of transition with prevailing economic and socio-political challenges. A recent peaceful election has been undertaken yet there has been political disruption with social unrest in parts of the country. Pray for continued peace and stability through inclusive national dialogue and concerted reconciliation measures. Thousands of people have been displaced in Northern Ethiopia exacerbating the growing number of Ethiopian refugees suffering in different countries and in refugee centres. Pray that the Lord’s eyes are on those in need and that he would work and provide in unimaginable ways among the poor and vulnerable in Ethiopia. (Life In Abundance International - September 2021)
September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 29 - Middle East - IFES
September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 29 - Middle East - IFES: An IFES movement recently hosted “Study Parties” during the exams, with quiet slots for studies and fellowship over meals and breaks. Praise God that “Many students expressed how the events both encouraged them to study, but also encouraged them as believers. Rather than feeling like God was waiting on the other side of the exam period (or that they would get back to God on the other side of the period), they found that God and their fellow believers were right there with them, even in the stressful exam period.” (IFES - September 2021)
Greece
September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 28 - Greece - ECMI: Wildfires are raging in Greece forcing thousands to evacuate in one of its worst heatwaves in decades. Let us pray for those affected, and for the ECM workers and ministries there.
Sri Lanka
September - October 2021 World Prayer News - 27 - Sri Lanka - IFES: FOCUS Sri Lanka have found that online meetings have increased language divides in their Christian student groups, with shorter meetings and not having a neighbour to provide whispered translation making groups much more monolingual. Pray that ways would be found to overcome this and other barriers to allow students from different backgrounds to worship and learn together in Christian unity. (IFES - September 2021)
