Travelling overseas on short and long term mission has always been a part of Soul Survivor Watford Church. Soul Missions exists to inspire, equip and release those called to other countries whilst also informing those ‘at home’ of prayer, financial and practical needs.
Barney in South Africa
“After graduating from Harvest School 29 with Iris Global in Autumn 2018, God has taught me so much about what laying my life down for Him really means, and has been preparing me for the next steps into life as a full-time overseas missionary.
I'll be heading back to South Africa in September 2019, where I'll be living for the next two years. I'll be based at a huge family home, where 30 previously orphaned children live, along with a dozen or so full-time. There are weekly opportunities for teaching, outreach & discipleship in neighbouring townships, etc.”
What Can I Pray For?
That God will use Barneys life and take it as an offering
That he will speak to Barney about his next steps after the school
For boldness and courage to obey God wherever he ends up
That Barney obtain a two-year VISA from his appointment in late May
That Barney’s heart and mind will stay focused on His plans through this time of preparation
That the hearts of all those we'll be ministering to around Lanseria, SA will be prepared to meet with Jesus
Kate in Guatemala
Since early 2015, Kate Moreno has been serving in Guatemala as a social worker at Oasis – a specialist ministry for girls who have suffered sexual abuse. Within the ministry there is:
A residential home for girls aged 5-17 who have been sexually abused.
A specialist house for child mothers and their babies, and girls who are pregnant.
A transition programme for girls aged 18+.
A family reunification programme.
A foster family programme.
The focus of the Oasis ministry is justice, reconciliation and restauration of the family.
Guatemala is still battling the legacy of a civil war which raged from 1960-1996. There is an extremely high incidence of murder and violent crime; Guatemala is the 9th most dangerous country in the world. Violence against women and children is entrenched into society and there is much intra-familial sexual abuse, which largely goes unreported.
What can I pray for?
Justice , peace, restauration and transformation for the whole of Guatemala.
Protection for Kate as she travels around Guatemala, visiting families and gong to court.
Wisdom for Kate as she implements new policies and procedures in Oasis and shares them with other homes and ministries to improve social work practice across the nation.
Good physical, emotional and spiritual health for Kate as she works with severely traumatised children and complex families every day.
