AIM Netherlands are taking part in the ‘No Choice’ campaign, designed to raise awareness of unreached people groups among churches in the Netherlands. Please pray that God will use this multi-organisation campaign to stir Christians in the Netherlands to a passion for cross-cultural mission.
Pray for more local and foreign Christian workers, church planters and children’s workers to serve God’s kingdom in Madagascar. Many current missionaries plan to return to their home countries in the next two years. Join us in praying for many more to come and sustain the ministry.
Barry and Heather Mann have been working remotely from the UK since before the Covid-19 pandemic. While working remotely they have been able to take on other roles besides those they have with Growing Nations and as Unit Leaders for AIM in Lesotho, such as Heather’s involvement in overseeing finances for AIM Southern Region and Barry’s work in helping AIM to roll out a new Crisis and Security Policy for the whole organisation. Praise God for these opportunities to serve and please pray that God will provide the finances they need to raise in order to continue serving with AIM and Growing Nations.

Give thanks for Global Link Afrika in Uganda, and for Sam and his colleagues promoting the cause of mission and serving the church as the church sends missionaries into cross-cultural ministry. Pray they would increase awareness and excite more Ugandans about the roles they can play in sharing the gospel.
Please pray for Annette* as she prepares to join her team in East Africa in May.

Happy Easter! Praise God that ‘In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.’ (1 Peter 1:3b-4)
Praise God that Rift Valley Academy (RVA) successfully sent its students home at the end of term last weekend with only 12 hours’ notice of a new lockdown in Kenya. Please pray that the students will enjoy spending the holidays with their families; and pray for wisdom for the staff at RVA as they plan for the rest of the school year. Please also pray for Kenya as the country experiences a third wave of Covid-19 infection alongside a current shortage of oxygen tanks and intensive care beds in hospitals.
This Good Friday, give thanks that Jesus’ death on the cross has given us peace with God and each other (Ephesians 2:13-16). Pray that God will reveal to you afresh how great his grace and forgiveness are, and pray that as missionaries share this news of peace, people will respond by putting their trust in Jesus.
Please continue to pray for the conflict in northern Mozambique and an end to the violence and cruelty being suffered by its people. The Mozambican government has recently invited the USA to support its own forces involved in the conflict. Please pray that this will have a positive effect on the situation, and that all forces involved in trying to end the conflict will act for the good of Mozambicans who have already suffered so much.
