How you can help our mission at the end of 2021

For this month, my appeal is really more of a reminder.

Funding

Last month, I shared a document that had a few, priority needs in our ministry for funding. I would just like to call your attention once again to the first two items on that list, namely the Basque project and also the Kent Burchyett Missions Scholarship Fund. We have rather urgent and substantial financial needs in these two areas. Please, prayerfully consider giving and/or passing along these needs to others. Again, here is the updated version of the PDF List.

Major financial needs for Linguæ Christi’s mission

I have been hinting for a few months now that we have some really strategic and even essential areas of need, when it comes to funding. The cold, hard fact of the matter is that sometimes the only difference between unreached people groups having access to the Gospel in their languages or not is dependent on just one thing in earthly terms: money. Because we operate on-field with more of a missional, organic model, there often are not that many financial needs related to the day-to-day work of evangelism and Church planting. However, the greater financial need is for those issues, which are “behind the scenes” so to speak, but are essential in enabling and developing the day-to-day work of mission on the field among these often remote language groups in Europe.

Kent Burchyett Missions Scholarship Fund

Last month we also received some very sad news. Our good friend and former mission colleague, Kent Burchyett, passed away from complications of COVID-19. Kent served with us in Wales for three years in the early 2000s. His love of the Welsh people and their language was well-known, and he never lost his ability to speak Welsh fluently. While serving in pastoral ministry in the USA, he continued to pursue his love and calling for world missions through his involvement in mission projects in Wales, China, Czech Republic, and other areas.

Business: Virtual Student Projects with Linguæ Christi

Napoleon Bonaparte is rumoured to have said, “an army marches on its belly.” He recognised that a great number of resources—both material and human, and often “behind-the-scenes”—were necessary for success. We at Linguæ Christi feel similarly about the work of mission that God has given to us. We recognise readily that it requires a lot of practicalities (resources, people, processes, systems) to enable a long-term missionary to sit in a cafe in Northern Italy, sharing the Gospel for the first time in fluent Ladin with his or her new friend. Whether we’re speaking of resources, like funds and materials; or people, who perform practical tasks and ministries; or processes and organisations—it all comes together as the means through which God leads and enables His calling and mission to all the people groups of the world.

Director’s Update — April 2021

Atgyfododd Crist!!! – Christ is Risen!!!

I hope that this month’s update finds you all well! For those of us using the calendar of the Western Christian tradition, we have enjoyed the wonderful celebration of the Lord Jesus’ glorious and triumphant resurrection this month. Our brothers and sisters of the Eastern Christian tradition get their turn to celebrate on 2 May. Accordingly, you might just receive the paschal greeting two months in a row.
