Safe Haven Children's Home is the name of our first children's home in Pakistan! A property across the street from a park has been rented by our partner Azeem. As soon as it is adequately furnished and his family arrives we look forward to it being filled with street children Azeem has met on his exploratory trips in the area. We are now seeking child and home sponsors for Safe Haven as well as one-time gifts to help fund the first year of operation. Please visit Safe Haven's page to support this wonderful new program.


Praise God and thank you to all who have supported this project!

Hope Development Center in Yangon, Burma recently lost a couple sponsorships, while at the same time eight new children have come to the children's home. Please prayerfully consider if you could help sponsor HDC to help ensure the children can be well cared for.  "[W]hoever is kind to the needy honors God." (Prov. 14:31b)

Thank you to all the countless volunteers who stopped by bringing donations of supplies for this ministry, and for the countless hours of labor spent sorting and packing it all!

 

ANOTHER CONTAINER OF RELIEF SUPPLIES HAS BEEN COMPLETED!

 

It was a lot of work, but a team of VBB workers and volunteers loaded a 40' shipping container with ten tons of clothing, blankets, medicine, food, hygiene packs and other supplies on June 25. We did our best to fill in every cubic inch! The container is now its way to Amman, Jordan where our partner ministry Manara International will use it to bring hope and comfort to Syrian refugees as they share God's Word with them. 

 

Check out the Serve page for more information on how you can play a role in this ministry to refugees overseas who need to hear the Gospel.

In our previous blog post below we spoke of David, the little boy without a wheelchair. A VBB missions team delivered a wheelchair to him on June 9 at his apartment. Here is a photo of him in his new ride. The team prayed for him and his starting school soon, and also gave him the handbag in his lap. 


The team also delivered hundreds of Bibles and hundreds of pounds of clothing, communion cups, medicine, school supplies, hygiene items and more to pastors at house churches and at a pastors conference meeting deep in the hill country. Please pray the Bibles would be well used and treasured, and that a wave of repentance and revival of biblical faith would sweep the country in this closed central American nation.

David, the son of a pastor, is a four year old boy in a closed country who cannot walk. He needs a child-sized wheelchair. If anyone can provide one to our Casper office for an upcoming trip to his country it would be a real blessing!

 

Do you have time this summer to bless Christians in need of God's Word and encouragement in other countries? We still have openings for several trips this summer, as well as the rest of the year. The need is particularly urgent for one country where the door may be closing. Contact Brent at 307-333-6545 or travel@visionbeyondborders.org for more information!

 

Please pray for China, Cuba and Venezuela. In China the government continues to crack down on Christians, closing and demolishing churches, breaking up worship services and intimidating and arresting believers. Pray that they would stand strong in the faith, continue meeting together to encourage and disciple one another, and keep sharing the Gospel to their countrymen.

 

In Cuba, pray that Christians would support one another and reach out in love to their neighbors as food shortages intensify. Pray that the door would remain open to Christian ministries supplying the underground church there amid the threat of a renewed embargo against Cuba.

 

In Venezuela, pray that Bibles would continue to arrive safely in the country and be gladly received by those struggling with the collapse of their economy. Pray that a peaceful and law-abiding government would be established so that the suffering of the people would end. May Venezuelans turn to God and place their trust in Him in their time of trouble and find faith and comfort in His Word.
