Guyana Jubilee Bible School 2022

By Bro. David Andrews, fulltime Missionary in Guyana

Easter week-end Friday 15-April to Mon 18-April 2022, will mark the 50th Bible School being held in Guyana. The first was held in April 1969, at the Eccles Hall under the tutorship of Bros. Norman Mills and Stuart Cowlishaw, who were both from the UK. At this time, Bro. Colishaw was a lecturer at the University at the West Indies in Trinidad. I was then just an 18 year-old from the Bartica Ecclesia up the Essequibo River, migrating to Georgetown to take up a job at the Ministry of Finance. continue reading

    A Pan (Latin) American Bible School

    By Bro. Jim & Sis. Jean Hunter

    After another year of frustration and confinement. By the end of 2021, travel and hygienic restrictions were being eased in Latin America, so in El Salvador, plans were made for a second consecutive Bible school under the shadow of the Covid pandemic, praying that God would allow the project to go ahead and bless it to His honour and glory, and for the spiritual benefit of all who could attend.  There were 83 in attendance, more than we had dared hope for. Our God was gracious and gave us this time together around His word. continue reading

    Ukraine Update – 12 March

    By CBM-UK

    In the past week, much work has been going on behind the scenes to support brothers and sisters in Ukraine and those seeking to flee as refugees. First of all, we need to acknowledge that many of our elderly members spread across Ukraine do not wish to leave their homes, or may be unable to due to age and infirmity. The upheaval it would cause and the danger they would face whilst travelling is such that a number have opted to stay where they are, even in cities that are under Russian constant bombardment. Our ability to communicate with these members is in some cases very limited, since many do not use modern communications methods that we are used to.  continue reading

    Costa Rica Year-End Bible School 

    By Bro. David Collister

    December 2021 arrived, along with the Costa Rican Year-End Bible School. In a very rare occurrence indeed, I was in Costa Rica for the second time within six months. This came out of several circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 Pandemic. It is truly a blessing that we were able to hold this Bible School in person, as well as provide a link for those who could not be here in person. Technology truly is a blessing in these circumstances. continue reading

  • The CBM-UK is asking the brotherhood to join them in prayer for our brothers and sisters in the Ukraine. We understand a few brothers and sisters have made it over the border into either Poland, Romania or Lithuania, however most of our brothers and sisters are hunkered down in the homes or basements still in the Ukraine. continue reading

    Ukraine Update – March 4

    By David Pearce and Mark Sheppard

    The situation in Ukraine remains fluid and so by the time this appears it could well be out of date. We have a number of brothers and sisters in the danger zones in Ukraine. The Donetsk region was taken over by the rebels in 2014, but they were fought back by Ukraine soldiers, so that Kramatorsk, where our Sis Elena M lives, went back into Ukraine control. continue reading

    By CBM-UK

    This is the latest news as of 11am, Saturday 26 February. Our CBM Linkman and others involved in the work in that part of the world are in regular contact with several of our brothers and sisters in Ukraine. Some of our brothers and sisters are frightened and need our prayers. We will update the brotherhood as news emerges. We have a number of brothers and sisters in the danger zones in Ukraine. continue reading

    Malawi and Mozambique Update

    By CBM-UK

    Since our initial update about the effect of flooding and then Storm Ana on our brothers and sisters in Malawi, we have received an update which now puts the number of those in need of welfare aid at over 2,800 people. To put this into context for our community, the Southern Region is where 150 of the 172 Malawian Ecclesias are based (with a membership of approximately 8,000). The Malawian Area Elders have requested food aid from CBM Welfare for around a third of all our members in Malawi from 111 different ecclesias. continue reading

  • Between January 22-25, Tropical Storm Ana hit Madagascar and then tracked to Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. Tens of thousands of people have been affected across this region of Africa, including many of our brothers and sisters in Malawi who live in the south of the country. For them, this storm happened just days after severe flooding across a wide area, which had already caused many homes to collapse and had destroyed hundreds of fields of newly planted crops, affecting over 900 members of our community. continue reading
