Pray and give to
the AIM Europe team
Recently there has been a lot of change in the Communications team. Lucy finished at the end of July, please pray for her as she studies to become a counsellor. Stephen Bazely has recently joined as our Senior Designer, as well as planning publications, Stephen will be involved in keeping our website up to date. Pray for him as he learns about AIM as well as his role.
Today AIM staff and missionaries are sharing some social time today with an away day and barbecue. Please pray for good weather for us as well as for opportunities to forge deeper relationships through seeing each other face to face, and spending quality time together.
Give thanks for those who are enquiring about serving overseas through our Netherlands office. Pray that the Dutch team would be able to forge good relationships with each person, encouraging and walking alongside them as they discern God’s call on their lives. Pray that the right assignments can be found and the necessary support raised.
Praise God with the Finance team that the new and current systems are integrating well with each other. Pray that the team will be able to use the new systems to their full potential so that they can serve our missionaries and the rest of the UK team well. Many of the team are away at different points over the summer, please pray for good rest for those on holiday.
Thank God for the France-based orientation that took place last weekend. Please pray for the four participants as they raise support and prepare to go to their assignments later this year. Pray that God would work in them and through them for his glory.
Summer is a time when many missionaries return to the UK for their Home Assignment. As part of our member care we offer each missionary a debrief. This is an opportunity to ‘unpack’ and process some of their experiences and how they’ve been impacted by them with a supportive listener. Please pray that Peter and Julie will connect well with those they’re debriefing; rejoicing with them in their progress and opportunities and offering compassionate understanding of the challenges and difficulties they’ve faced.
The AIM Netherlands office are looking ahead at how to connect with more people and churches over the coming months. Please pray for wisdom and insight for them to determine what to focus on and how to invest their time. Please pray especially for Rianne’s work as AIM’s Mission Advisor in the Netherlands.
Please pray for AIM Europe’s Mission Advisors as they prepare to represent AIM at conferences and mission events this summer and autumn. Praise God for the unity that these connections, networks and partnerships reflect, and please pray that our Mission Advisors will serve their brothers and sisters in Christ well as they talk to them about cross-cultural mission.
