We believe we are all one in Jesus, and so we support the mission of our brothers and sisters around the world.
This Month’s Person to Pray for:
Please pray for Azaria Spencer, our CMS mission partner working with young people in Guatemala. She has been asked to be the head coordinator of Centro Opp, a new centre in Guatemala City that houses the Casa Alexis Protection Home and the Mentoring Centre. She asks for prayer for the mentoring centre, for the development of new programmes and activities, and for the creation of a committee of young people to help her develop the discipleship programme.
The youth project at St. Mark’s, Ngagara that we supported last year on Burundi Sunday is well underway with 95 children and young people between the ages of 5 and 23 yrs. engaged in a range of musical activities.
St. Mark’s, Gahosha
St. Mark’s, Gahosha has celebrated the official opening of the Vicarage, meeting room and another building by the Bishop of Makamba Diocese. In his speech the Vicar of St. Mark’s, Rev. Hermes Gatoto thanked us for our support with these projects and invited us to share in the parish’s 20th anniversary celebrations next year.
The Anglican Church of Burundi
St Mark’s partnership with Burundi started in the 1970’s with a commitment to pray for the Church and the country.
We continue that link today in various ways but particularly through our support of two parishes, St. Mark’s, Ngagara and St. Mark’s, Gahosha.
St. Mark’s, Gahosha in Makamba
St. Mark’s, Ngagara in Bujumbura
Annually we have Burundi Sunday when we connect with one of those parishes and support a project of their choosing.
