Theological and Scientific Education in Universities
Theological and Scientific Education in Universities: Discussions about science and religion are dominated by scholars working in elite Western universities and seminaries. Their work has greatly enhanced the quality and richness of these dialogues but does not benefit from the diverse experiences and perspectives of scientists in the Majority World. IFES has just launched the Logos and Cosmos Initiative to equip roughly 80 ‘catalysts’ from Latin America and Francophone Africa to plan and run projects drawing together theological and scientific perspectives. Pray for the applicants, the team supporting them and that this programme would have a long-term impact on individuals, movements, the university, church and society.  (IFES - April 2021)

Reaching Jewish people in Brazil: International Mission to Jewish People reaches out to Jewish people around the world to share the Good News. Brazil has one of the largest Jewish communities in the world with an estimated population of at least 120,000 Jewish people. Rio de Janeiro alone is currently home to an estimated 35,000 Jewish people. To reach out to them, we have appointed Sergio Danon, a highly experienced missionary to share the gospel with the Jewish people in Rio de Janeiro and beyond. Please pray for all the Jewish people that Sergio is meeting, asking that many will come to faith as they hear about the Good News of Jesus. (International Mission to Jewish People - April 2021)
Venezuela
Refugees returning to Venezuela: VIVA’s partner network of churches in Venezuela is forming a response to support former refugee families who are returning to the country during the pandemic but finding it extremely hard. Pray for churches as they work together to train families about planning and running micro-businesses, so they become economically self-sustainable. Additionally, children and young people are being empowered in peer protection and self-care, and protected against malnutrition, in a sustainable way. Pray for protection for the millions of Venezuelan people who are caught up in the desperate situations of migration, quarantine shelters and attempts at reintegration.  (Viva - April 2021)
Colombia
Student Ministry in Colombia: The uncertainty over restrictions, closures and curfews make student ministry challenging. Please pray for UCU Colombia staff who are mentoring students across the country, training them to lead Bible studies, disciple younger students and share their faith with course mates in person and online.   (IFES - April 2021)
