Mission and discipleship: news from the Mathetes Trust

“Again, truly I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven.”
We are immensely grateful to those of you who support our work through prayer, to those of you who roll up your sleeves and climb into your cars to help us share the gospel with others, and to those of you who give of your personal resources to help us fulfil our vision of making disciples in the local church. All these things have made a big difference in recent months.

Missions in the UK

This month we are helping with two parish missions in Purley on Thames and Breaston in Derbyshire – please continue to pray for Roger and the team as they strive to share the gospel with all they meet, and let us know if you would like to receive prayer updates.

Fianarantsoa 0817 (97)

A Rooted in Jesus team returned recently from the Dioceses of Fianarantsoa and Toliara in Madagascar, where they led conferences for Sunday School teachers training to use Rooted in Jesus Junior. The team was led by Canon Jacob Robert of the Diocese of Mara, Tanzania, and we have posted a report on the Rooted in Jesus blog, which you can read here. The report includes an interview with Revd Jean Flobert, Vicar General of the Diocese of Fianarantsoa, and a remarkable performance by the Fort Dauphin children’s choir in Toliara. It was humbling to be working with such dynamic and committed people in one of the poorest countries of the world, and to have the privilege of offering them the first training and the first resource material to help them in their work of discipling children.

Pray with us

Every three months we issue a prayer diary, covering these and many other things. The next one runs from October to December, and includes prayer requests for churches using our discipleship materials, for those planning missions, for those whose leaders meet in our EQUIP groups, and for dioceses planning Rooted in Jesus conferences. In October and November we will be sending teams to the dioceses of Mityana, Soroti and Karamoja in Uganda, and we covet your prayers! The new prayer diary can be downloaded HERE.
