As you read the opportunities in this publication, you may well be asking yourself, “Will it be worth it?” But let’s ask the question from another angle. Let’s start with the cross of Christ and ask of that, what is that worth?

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

United Kingdom
Prayer for our Conference: The New Normal: Blended Discipleship...: Prayer would be appreciated as we hold this conference, in person and by Zoom. One of the seminar speakers will now not be able to attend but will present by Zoom. Please pray that it would all come together well, be a worthwhile day and that all would stay safe and well.
Laos
Punoi people of Laos: The Punoi inhabit parts of north-central Laos around Phongsali. They practice an ethnic religion, which is often a blend of animism and ancestor worship. Laos is one of the poorest countries in Southeast Asia and there is a great need for healthcare; pray that the Lord will provide workers to meet the area’s needs. The northern provinces were severely affected by the Vietnam War in the 1970s: US planes bombed the region and left a legacy of landmines and cluster bombs in the area where the Punoi live. Pray for a bomb removal project to reach this part of Laos.
Cambodia
Hakka Chinese in Cambodia: Pray for the Hakka Chinese people group in Cambodia. They have their own distinct culture, and number around 600. They have access to the Bible, so pray that many will read it and meet Jesus. Pray, too, that the Lord will send workers who will speak his truth into this culture, so that the unreached Hakka in Cambodia will come to know him.
Myanmar
Students in Myanmar: There are more than 55,000 university students in Myanmar but no-one is sharing the gospel with them. The active outreach of the 1990s has stopped. Groups of believers meet together but do not reach out to non-believers. Please pray that God will break through in that situation.
