In May I had the privelege of visiting Peru, our team there and the various national workers whom we support (Support Partner Workers - SPW). One particularly joyful occasion was visiting El Puente Baptist Church's mission projects in Cusco:

When the church missioner left a couple of years ago, Pastor Amilcar, the SPW who followed on from Scott Williamson, asked permission to use the grant to resource volunteer missionaries instead of employing another SPW missioner.

This creativity has resulted in children's clubs in three different neighbourhoods, in addition to the social project which already was running in the main church building. These children's club are...

If you’ve seen this picture of Guinea before, I apologise – I loved taking it and never tire of looking at it. The majesty, beauty and serenity of the enormous tree overlooking the valley seem to be a metaphor for Africa, and for many things missionary.

The photograph is actually from 2015, but last month I was in the same place, at a retreat for the team which our BMS workers are part of with the Swiss organisation SAM. Being there was a reminder of what a privilege it is to share in the lives of our personnel...

Time for some encouragement from Peru.

Life at headquarters lends one to a lax attitude towards blogging and prayer letter writing. I can't believe it was September the last time I wrote a blog!

Mark is busy with his role at BMS headquarters, leading BMS teams in Latin America (Peru, Paraguay, Brazil) and Africa (Guinea, Uganda, Mozambique, Zimbabwe). A particularly exciting development is at the Nauta mission training centre (in Peru), where local young people are learning about stewardship of God’s creation through Bible studies, and planting an experimental agroforestry area in the centre’s grounds (see pic).

Alongside that, there are plans to extend the centre...

Gulu , in the north of Uganda, is a new place for me, and here I, Mark, am sitting with Genesis and Benon, in the pleasant morning heat waiting for others of our Gulu mission team to arrive for team devotions. Genesis and Benon are BMS International Mission Workers, faithful co-workers who serve with BMS in their own country. Benon is our team leader and is based in Kampala. Genesis is an agricultural worker, training families from sixteen villages in sustainable agriculture. The training also brings in devotional times for the...
