What are your children doing this summer?
Did you know that The Faith Mission run kids’ camps in the UK and Ireland. Our Canadian sister mission also runs camps and events for kids and youth. For a peek at what goes on, have a look at the video our worker, Tim Condy put together a couple of years ago. This year the fun will be just as good!
At the opening of Edinburgh Convention 2005, our General Director, JOHN TOWNEND, prayed for the convention, for the nation and for us all as individuals. As the meeting was recorded, we are able to print an extract here. This is so that all our readers may have the opportunity to join those of us who identified with John’s words that night, and that together, we may continue to pray for God’s blessing on The Faith Mission, our own lives and on our needy nation. – Ed.
Thank You, Father, that we don’t come before You because of who we are or what we’ve done, but because of the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank You that He was willing to take in His own body our sin and nail it to that awful cross at Calvary. Thank You that ‘there is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus’. Lord, we are a privileged people. You did not discard us, but You loved us and have visited us with Your grace and mercy.
Father, we surrender this convention into Your hands. Thank You it is not the Faith Mission’s convention but it is Yours. It is convened because You have a work to do during these days. We pray that we would take our hands off and that You may come in Your fullness and in the freedom of Your Holy Spirit to minister to the needs that You want to touch during these days. But, Lord, most of all, come to glorify Your Name; to bring honour to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Lord, thank You that You are a great God. Nothing is impossible with You and as we think of the need in our nation, we thank You that You also see individuals here, who are crying out for You to minister to some particular need in their heart and life. Thank You Lord that You care for us as individuals as well as communities of Your people. Lord, meet with us and have Your way.■

The Faith Mission Bible College, Edinburgh.
Are you eager to learn more about God? Have you been wondering about Bible College?
The open day at The Faith Mission Bible College will give you a chance to be immersed in a community united by a conviction that Jesus Christ is the ultimate one; a group of people open to the direction of the Holy Spirit with a core emphasis on the evangelical doctrines of the Christian faith and a passion to learn, live and communicate the message of the Bible. It is a chance to sit in on lectures; meet staff and students; worship with us; and find out if The Faith Mission Bible College is where God is calling you.
