Prayer for Mission

An introduction to some of the mission organisations we regularly pray for at Ashbourne Baptist Church.

GBM logo Grace Baptist Mission

Grace Baptist Mission (GBM) is church-based, helping Grace Baptist churches to support and care for their missionaries through local churches in Europe, Latin America, Africa and Asia. Their English and French Bible-teaching radio programmes are broadcast worldwide over Christian radio stations. Their literature ministry supplies local churches in the developing world. GBM missionaries plant new churches and help national Christians to plant and grow indigenous churches across the world. They evangelise the Amazon river peoples, the deaf in Austria, the homeless in Manila, and Asian women in Britain. Where GBM is involved in compassion ministries, they aim to make the gospel bring change to every aspect of people's lives. GBM is also involved in training leaders, in formal theological seminaries and in local-church courses.

Vuyiroli — Homes for the Elderly logo Vuyiroli (Light of Life) - Homes for the Elderly

Vuyiroli is a non-profit evangelistic Christian organization restoring dignity and hope in the lives of the dying and destitute poor. Rescuing India's abandoned elderly destitute from the streets of Chennai, Vuyiroli provides a home, food, medical care and a community - regardless of caste, creed, religion, or language. Vuyiroli shows elders abandoned by their families love and affection, helping them to live out their remaining years with dignity, companionship, and happiness. Residents are regularly encouraged to seek the Lord. Some have become Christians as a result and read their Bibles and pray daily.

Gideons UK logo Gideons International

Gideons International is a non-denominational association. They distribute Bibles worldwide, without charge, in hotels, hospitals, prisons, schools, colleges and universities, care homes and medical centres, and to the police, armed forces, ambulance and fire services. As they give people their own personal copy of God’s Word, Gideons also encourage individuals to meet God for themselves through the words of Scripture.

OMF logo Overseas Missionary Fellowship

OMF is an evangelistic mission, in fellowship with local churches in many countries, which shares the good news of Jesus Christ in all its fullness with East Asia's peoples to the glory of God. Through God's grace, OMF aims to see an indigenous, biblical church movement in each people group of East Asia, evangelising their own people and reaching out in mission to other peoples. OMF cares for the uncared for in teeming mega-cities, in remote villages and among tribal peoples in Asia - and in other countries, including the UK.

Living Waters Europe logo Living Waters Europe

Living Waters Europe exists to inspire in every Christian a God-glorifying passion to fulfill the Great Commission - and to equip Christians for evangelism through a variety of training opportunities and unusal, effective and biblical evangelism resources. Training courses for local churches and individuals are available face-to-face, online, on TV or through training videos, books and other media. Living Waters tracts are varied (they include evangelistic films) and are known as 'icebreakers' because they make it so easy to start conversations, even with strangers.
