Bible Handbooks reach students:

Theology students receive encouragement:
After carrying a consignment of Bible Handbooks to Burundi on a recent mission trip, team members donated the books to the Anglican Bible College students in Matana. The books were given to Mission International by Signpost International after they were found to be surplus to their requirements. The books are a very valuable resource to students who will emerge as ministers in the Anglican church and will help them to provide a service to the church in Burundi.

Mission International, over recent years has provided Bibles for needy church pastors and leaders and is keen to develop this side of the ministry in areas where the written word is scarce.

A real 'Showstopper'!

Holiday Bible Club raises funds for Hope Centre Burundi!
Members of a Westhill church in Aberdeenshire have raised a total of £102 for the Hope Centre as a result of running a cafe with the club. This is a real encouragement to all of us and show initiative as the group used the opportunity to share what they have with the poor, what better idea for a Bible Club?The hard workers stop for a photo as they use their time skills and initiative to be a blessing to those who are in difficult circumstances.Cafe patrons enjoy the experience in the full knowledge that their support will in turn make a difference in the developing world. Well done everybody!

Team members support Hope Centre project:

Young Mission Team members make a difference by their commitment:

The three Girls sort through bag loads of gifts carried for the children of the Hope centre and others.

Three of the latest Burundi team, now returned from their trip, have made substantial contributions to the support of the Hope Centre project and to the children supported there. Alison, Amy and Rheagan, three school girls who were part of the team, had raised a considerable amount of support before heading out on the trip to Africa. The three used the funds they had raised in some really significant ways. Firstly they were able to sponsor three of the Hope Centre kids for a year, then they started a goat project by funding the purchase of the first three goats as well as leaving funds to purchase cement for the continuation of the building programme.

Here the girls get involved in team activities presenting stories songs and dramas to the children, ably assisted by their Kirundi translator Berry.

If you would like to be part of a team then have a look at the teams update page link and the teams application form on the right hand column of this page.
