2020 FEATURED MISSION PARTNERS

YOUNG LIFE AFRICA

There are ~16 million unreached kids in Mali, Senegal, and Sierra Leone under the age of 15

 

Young Life is introducing young people to Jesus across Africa – transforming hearts, lives, families, and communities in the process. Teens from Mali, Senegal, and Sierra Leone will experience a place of welcome, adventure, laughter, and unconditional love alongside a trusted leader at a Young Life camp where they’ll hear the entire gospel story, many for the first time.

  • A teen mom abandoned by her parents finds acceptance again

  • A street kid with a history of drug abuse finds forgiveness

  • A young girl finds freedom

  • An orphan finds love

 

Some kids have never even left their neighborhood and many will return having met their Savior, Jesus Christ!

  

You can help reach many teens with the Gospel story and provide a long-term relationship with a Christian mentor to equip them to be Christian leaders in their families and communities. Join us in this movement, changing lives forever, and impacting eternity!

CHRISTAR

Only 2% of the 70 million Deaf worldwide have been introduced to the Gospel

Effectively reaching them with the message of Christ requires mobilizing and equipping believers who can communicate this good news in their unique languages and in culturally relevant ways.

 

Only approximately a dozen believers exist among the hundreds of thousands of Persian Deaf. Your generosity will help Christar reach them by:

  • Developing a resource designed to impart a vision for reaching the least-reached Deaf among Deaf believers

  • Adding a Deaf mobilizer, who will recruit Deaf believers for ministry in least-reached Deaf communities, to its mobilization team

  • Sending two short-term teams of Deaf believers to minister among the Persian Deaf, giving them a taste of how God can use them to make Him known in this community.

 

By God’s grace, your partnership will result in long-term workers mobilized to take the gospel to the Persian Deaf and other least-reached Deaf people groups!

WANTAKIAN BIBLE TRANSLATION

Thanks to you, at the beginning of June, a group of Wantakians heard the Gospel for the first time!

In 2018, BLESS partners provided funding for the translation of the four Gospels in the first-time ever written heart-language of the Wantakian people in Papua New Guinea.    

Now it’s time to provide eternal sustainability by providing the rest of the New Testament. 

 

  • Purchase equipment needed to complete the New Testament Translation

  • Enable literacy training, Bible teaching and, discipleship
