MISSIONS AND OUTREACH MINISTRIES
"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit," (Matt.28:19 HCSB)
Sam and Dawn Wills
An estimated 4 to 5.4 million people lost their lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) as a result of the wars that raged between 1997 and 2004. These wars along with government corruption have collapsed a fragile infrastructure of transportation, education, health, and the financial systems.
As the country now stabilizes as a democracy, Sam will serve as a pilot with Mission Aviation Fellowship flying the many Christian and humanitarian organizations working to conduct emergency medical evacuations, transport medicines to outlying areas, enable church workers and evangelism, as well as enable training events, learninginstitutions, community development projects, and crisis relief.
Sam, Dawn, Talia, Brady, and Charlie will be in Quebec until December, 2011 studying French, the official language of DRC.

Our desire is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ in the Czech nation. We want to do it through church planting in our region. Our church is working in Pustá Rybná and in Hradec Králové. There are only a few Christians in these places. Our desire is to see a growing and healthy Christian communities there.
During the school year we arrange conversational English classes and every summer we organize English camps for families with children and for teenagers, along with various programs throughout the year. Our church organizes 2 types of English courses – for the youth and for adults. We are glad that 80 % of all participans are people outside our church. The lessons are focused on conversation and there are also native speakers.
How you can help us:

Who is the Mbale Mission Team? The team was launched in 1995 when Shawn & Linda Tyler moved from a 13 year long ministry in Kitale, Kenya across the border to Mbale, Uganda. The team seeks to share Christ with the people of East Africa through a variety of ministries.
Who is Team Expansion?
We are so excited about the many wonderful things that are happening among our people here in Africa. One quick story, a young boy, “Rich Man,” came to our clinic in a wheelbarrow several months ago severely malnourished and close to death. Now, two months later, he is walking and his family is believing. They keep asking for more Books to give to friends and neighbors. Along with the medical clinics, we are also excited about our feeding clinics. One young Muslim woman told us that the world had been spoiled by sin but through the love of God in us we are repairing it. It is a good reminder that the sometimes-inconvenient living is a small price to pay for being incarnational.
We would like to describe several ways in which you could partner with our work here.
Sponsor a feeding program – for $40 you can feed 150 people a healthy and filling meal. For many in our program this is the best meal they will eat all week. Our program feeds the homeless, elderly, orphans and abandoned women with children. The meal consists of rice, beans, and vegetable stew and a piece of fruit. An entire small group could share this meal and use the time to pray for our people and those who will be fed, that they will come to know the Bread of Life.
Send a short-term team – Medical personnel, construction workers, people who can hold babies, anyone who would like to be a part of what God is doing here. No special skills are necessary, just a willingness to be used. Short-term trips are incredible ways to physically be the hands and feet of Jesus and catch a vision for partnering with us. We are the first to engage a people group of over 6.2 million and are developing our strategy and in the infant stages of implementation. Short-term trips are a great way to fall in love with our people.
Be a “Go-Deeper” church – Our Company has asked us to partner with local bodies personally and specifically. We will be your “worker.” We can be a face to put to “M” offerings, set Skype dates with small groups, send videos to play, email specific prayer requests, and use your church strategically in reaching the lost here.
Commit to supporting a self-funded couple – John and Cathleen H are a young couple from Florida who are called to long-term missionary work. They have been to our city and have an incredible burden for the millions of lost. John and Cathleen are self-funded will be a valuable asset to our team and we are excited that they are making sacrifices to come self-funded.
We would be thrilled if you would consider partnering with us in any of these areas.
