Director’s Update — October 2020

The last couple of months I’ve greeted you from unusual circumstances. In August, I was actually on the road, and in September I was in a 14-day precautionary quarantine. Now, I am writing peacefully from my home in Talysarn, which at first glance shouldn’t seem odd, except for the fact that I was supposed to be in another country (Estonia) with the ministry today. I’ll say more about that in the update. Regardless of my location and circumstances, I extend warm greetings to you all for this month’s bulletin.

Summer 2021 Projects now available

Many of you know that for many years, we have had a programme during the summer months for believers during their university student years. We’ve had literally hundreds of people to come and serve with us through these types of projects over the years. Personally, it has been a joy and honour to work with so many incredible students over the years.

Director’s Update — September 2020

Last month I greeted you under unusual circumstances (I was in London travelling at the time), and I will continue that trend in this month’s letter. I can greet you most heartily from my home in Talysarn, North Wales, where I have been in a precautionary 14-day self-isolating quarantine, after having return from the travels I mentioned last month. This was required by new UK government requirements for people, who had been in a few specific countries in the 14 days prior to entry into the UK. As it happened, I was in two such countries before my return, which is the reason for my quarantine.

Sprachspielen: Indigenous

In this month’s Sprachspielen, I’d like for us to look at a word that you have undoubtedly seen us use with great regularity. It is the word “indigenous.” Another word that we often use in a similar way is “autochthonous,” a borrowing from Greek, which is generally less familiar to English speakers, but actually fairly commonly used in Romance languages such as Spanish, Italian, French and Romanian. But for the moment, I’d like to focus on the more familiar word “indigenous.”

Join our Explorer programme

The Explorer projects are ideal for recent college/university/seminary graduates, who are at a transition point in their lives, and willing to give some time to missions, before the next stage in their careers or further studies. These are projects, which are for 7-24 months, though the majority of which are about 12 months in duration. The primary focus for all of these assignments is to be a part of a local team, where the “Explorer” would use his or her passion to make Jesus known to those who do not yet know Him personally.
