We're excited to be partnering with people all over the world, sharing the good news of Jesus and seeing people everywhere experiencing the love of God, as the gospel goes out in word and deed.
James & Virag: Hungary
James and Virag met and married in Bath, but have returned to live in the village in Hungary that Virag is originally from. There they have moved into the community to be a Christian presence and share the good news of Jesus with the people there through their lives. They have set up a community coffee shop (the only one in the village) and Virag has started working with families from disadvantaged backgrounds in a local playgroup/drop in centre. Their heart is to make disciples as they make relationships with the poeple in the village.
Tom & Mel: Chad
Melanie and Tom began serving in Chad in January 2020. Having worked as a GP in the UK, Tom is working as a doctor in the BMS-supported Guinebor II hospital, and holds a significant role within the leadership team of the hospital. As well as looking after their children, Melanie is working to address common issues such as child malnutrition and maternal health. Mel and Tom have two daughters, Maisie and Rosa, who go to an international school in N'djamena in Chad.
Counterslip Cares Foodbank
The volunteers at Counterslip Cares food bank are seeking to share the love of God with those in food poverty by living out the call of Jesus to feed the poor and hungry. Week on week they provide food and guidance on financial issues, such as debt, for between 100-300 people.
Helen & Wit: Thailand
Wit and Helen work as church planters among the largely unreached indigenous Thai Buddhist people group. In this exciting new BMS work, Wit and Helen help to plant churches and disciple local believers alongside Thai church planters. Wit is originally from Thailand and before starting with BMS was minister at Thrapston Baptist Church while Helen is a TEFL teacher. Together they have two grown-up children.
