MISSIONS UPDATE – GOD’S Care in word and deed
Our missions directors at World Challenge have a lot of territory to cover. The Lord continues to open doors for us to meet needs in more communities around the world. This means our directors are rarely able to spend extended time in one place. They get just a brief taste of the joy and blessings that occur in poor communities now benefiting from clean water, improved hygiene and better farming practices.
A recent trip taken by Keith and Maureen Holloway was different. They spent three months in Cambodia, traveling over bumpy roads to remote villages where ten pastors supported by World Challenge minister faithfully. These pastors received training through our Community Ministry, learning not just the Bible and theology but God’s concern for the whole person. This includes spiritual and physical health practices as well as social and economic impact — all vital areas touching a villager’s life.
PARTNERING TO GIVE HOPE
From his recent trip to Thailand, Ashley Wilkerson shares with us a testimony from one of World Challenge’s ministry partners:
"I just want to say a huge thank you for the latest support from World Challenge. Your support is always an amazing blessing, but this one in particular got us through an especially tight spot. Because of this, we are able to feed and provide for all of our 1,000+ orphans for the first three months of 2014 – something we would not have been able to do without your support. So I want you to know that World Challenge is literally keeping hungry refugee orphans in Thailand and Burma fed! THANK YOU!"
