This summer has brought opportunities to connect with CWC’s partners all around the world. In June, several of us had the privilege of traveling to Sierra Leone. There we were able to connect with World Hope International (WHI) and The Wesleyan Church (TWC) of Sierra Leone. It provided us an opportunity to see the legacy of TWC in West Africa, begin a dialogue with our partner village in Maken, and get an idea of what is needed to restore the Wesleyan Conference Center to make it a viable ministry of the church. It was a joy to see those who traveled to Sierra Leone develop a passion about what God is doing there.
A few weeks following that trip, 60 plus people from CWC and IWU traveled to a closed country in East Asia to serve in summer learning camps. Global missions is becoming increasingly difficult, but God is using creating innovative platforms like education so that the Gospel can be proclaimed in places here, near and far, and in hard places. Several church attenders came back from that trip transformed, and willing to engage with God in His desire to see all people come to know Christ.
If two international trips weren’t enough, a handful of our members headed south of the border to serve alongside Senda de Vida (SDV) in Mexico City and San Juan de los Lagos. One of the highlights of this trip was traveling seven hours with individuals from our partner church to San Juan de los Lagos to visit one of SDV’s most recent church plants. There, individuals from SDV and CWC hosted a dental clinic as a means to be salt and light to the residents of the small city. Over 25 families were served in the dental clinic, many of which are a part of the small fellowship there.
In the coming days, would you pray for Pastor Jose and his family who are planting a church in San Juan de los Lagos? Would you pray for WHI, the village of Maken, and the leadership of TWC in Sierra Leone? Would you also pray for what God is doing in East Asia by asking Him to continue His favor on the program that is being led there through the platform of education?
If you are interested in participating in one of CWC’s global trips, please contact Pastor Beau at firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay tuned for more information on these trips. We are hoping to take teams to visit with our partners next summer.
