Ukrainian Team

, ,

Here is the fourth and final clip from the Experience Ukraine DVD project. This gives a brief snapshot of just a few of the Ukrainian people we’ve partnered with there.

Please pray for the continued growth of these special leaders with the Ukrainian church. Many of these stories are of young, first-generation Christians. They quickly find themselves in roles that require God’s wisdom and direction daily. They have a challenge, and an opportunity. When you realise that most of these stories intrinsically tied to DBI, its role for leadership development becomes even more significant in Ukraine.

Mobilization Ukraine

Here is the next installment of the Experience Ukraine project. This was put together with Craig here at Home Office, interspersed with footage taken in Ukraine.

A DVD of this video will be sent to each EFCC congregation in Canada. Look for it very soon!

Esperanza Viva (Living Hope)

Ross and Mary in Ecuador passed along this little update that concerns their teenage daughter. For the last number of years she’s had a heart for the children in Ecuador, and has been involved in raising money to buy and donate Bibles to them. Others are catching this vision too! Recently money was raised by children in a US 5th grade class through a bake sale. The relationship between that class and the Quichua children they are helping has been fostered by sharing pictures of the Ecuadorian children with their new Bibles.

What an amazing insight into how God’s love works even in those so young! May the Lord bless the relationships that have been started in this.

Teaching Overseas

Do you enjoy teaching? Interested in going overseas?

There is an increasing demand for teachers & staff for international schools. We know of two that need help! Black Forest Academy in Germany is looking for faculty, cooks, residence assistants, and dorm parents. And, Grace International School in Thailand needs Math, Science, and Music teachers for elementary, middle, and high school. If you’d like to find out more, visit our website.

Youth Missions

, ,

Every summer, for many years now, the EFCCM has sent a Youth Team to minister in Hermosillo, Mexico. It’s been an incredible way for the youth in our Free churches to experience life cross-culturally, “live and in person”. It’s also been a great way to give help to the long-term missionaries on the field for projects like construction and children’s ministry.

Unfortunately, we’ve had to cancel the trip for this summer. But, never fear, youth-focused short-term trips are something that the EFCCM Mobilization Department is hoping to do more of. If you are a youth, or know any youth that would be interested in experiencing missions first-hand, email lisab@efccm.org to be added to our mailing list. A short-term mission trip could be the beginning of a beautiful career for you!
