Thank You for your gift to Christian Reformed World Missions.  God calls us and our joyful response is to go and make disciples for Him.  Through His Spirit your gift has changed lives in:

West Africa ~ Missionaries recently helped organize a spiritual conference for members of a local church.  Participants recommitted themselves to prayer and Bible study and gave testimonies of what the Lord did in their lives.

Central America ~ CRWM missionaries have hosted several volunteer teams from North America and are hosting many more this summer.  Together, they are exploring what God is doing in this part of the world and learning new ways to partner with Him in that work.

Asia ~ Hannah, a student of a CRWM missionary, has had several health problems throughout her time at the seminary.  Now she has found a practical way to address her health using an action plan that she developed with the missionary.

Your financial support and prayers are greatly appreciated.  Thank you from World Missions
