World Missions Projects 2015-2016 – Touching the World
Our vision for world missions is to reach every continent of the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. There are 17 projects in which we are or will be involved.
This month, we will be focusing on the following projects:
Project #6: There are very few full-time Christian workers in Slovenia. Sergeja Slankovic is doing a good work in evangelism and discipleship, particularly of teenagers and young adult women. She has a need of $500 per month to be fully supported. Any amount will help contribute to this need. ANM Sponsorship Code is 335 SEF.
Project #8: Mission Bethel Ministries (MBM) operates a “Bible Schools on Wheels.” These Bible Schools go to the villages twice a year for fourteen days at a time for intensive training. Equipment is needed for these schools. Projectors cost $800. Generators are $1,450. Portable sound systems cost $700. ANM Project code is 528 MBM.
Project #17: Asia Harvest (based in New Zealand) is a faithful ministry partner of ANM. One important element of its work is care for the persecuted through its “Living Martyrs Fund.” In 2014 alone, 343 pastors and evangelists, primarily in China, North Korea and Vietnam, who are unable to work due to persecution or imprisonment, were helped. $35.00/month will help one living martyr. ANM Ministry code is 900 ASH.
