From the Projects Coordinator

Dear Partners, 

As we anticipate May Mission Month and all that God is doing now and going to do during and following May, I wanted to share a short update on our Projects. Above, you will see areas of team needs, including some exciting projects that need support. 

We are in full swing updating all the details online, so please keep an eye on the website or get in touch with me if you have questions about specific projects or teams. Project targets and balances have been updated. 

While Australia emerges to a ‘new normal’ with covid, some of our teams continue to face limitations so the rollout and availability for new projects is still limited. We are excited to see more opportunities open as the year progresses and we have a couple of new projects in the pipeline. I look forward to sharing information about these with you as soon as possible.

If your church is planning on partnering with a particular project, then would you consider letting us know? Pledges help us plan and support sustainable funding for our teams and their projects. Your pledge is non-binding, but does give us an indication of whether a particular project needs more funding or not.

Please feel free to contact me (Alison) on info@baptistmissionaustralia.org. Thank you to those that have already been in touch, it’s been wonderful reconnecting with you!

I am so grateful for your ongoing partnership, your care for each team, intercultural worker and person they live among. Your advocacy and partnership inspires and encourages me. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

In Christ,
Alison, Projects Coordinator
