As you can imagine, in this strange new world, coffee mornings in church, bake sales and the usual fundraising activities have been hard to come by in the last three months. But we are encouraged that there are still donations coming in towards our Mobilising for Mission project.
We might not be allowed out to socialise, but there are plenty of good fundraising ideas going on from our own houses. Have you tried a Zoom quiz yet? Or Kahoot? Anyone who has tried to buy flour recently will know that there is a resurgence in baking; the great British coffee morning has gone virtual! If you haven’t already tried any of these, could this be a chance to socialise virtually while raising some funds for the Project?
Online Donations (New!)
With our new online donation form, it is now easier than ever to donate to the Mobilising for Mission project. Alternatively, you can send donations to Mairi Macdonald (Donations Secretary) by post or directly to our WfM account – all the information can be found here. Every penny is greatly appreciated!
This year, we are supporting Donald and Rosangela Fraser, working with WEC in the Netherlands, the Free Church Camps (which we look forward to seeing back in 2021), World on our Doorstep in Govanhill and Operacion San Andres in Peru. Please remember to pray for all who are involved in working with these organisations as they seek to serve the Lord in the new ways we are all having to adapt to.
The extended fundraising deadline for the Mobilising for Mission project is September, when we look forward to launching the next project. Normally, this would happen at the biennial Women’s Conference, but sadly this has been postponed.
Pray, Support & Encourage
Perhaps it is more important now than ever to remember, support and pray for mission going on throughout the world. Some may have noticed during lockdown that the ‘ancient’ art of letter-writing is seeing something of a comeback. Maybe use some of your spare time to write a letter or a card – or even just an email – to someone working in mission? Children can get involved too, and might enjoy writing to a missionary kid! We all benefit from encouragement.
Thank you, as ever, for supporting the work of Women for Mission. Please remember to like of follow us on Facebook and share any encouragements you may have there.
