NEWS: Updates From Around the Globe

With more than 80 member ministries worldwide, sometimes it’s challenging to stay up-to-date with the latest developments at our projects. So we are always happy to receive an e-mail or communication letting us know how things are going. Here are some recent news items.

Amazon Lifesavers Ministry, Brazil – Pray for Brad Mills, project coordinator at Amazon Lifesavers. He has been recovering from dengue fever, and was just diagnosed with typhoid fever as well.

Country Life Prague, Czech Republic – Developed a new design for its lifestyle magazine, which has been distributed throughout the Czech Republic and Slovakia since 1995. In 2010, more than three hundred guests attended the Newstart Health Weeks organized around the country. The medical missionary school initiated and organized an intensive LIGHT program last summer, and another one is planned for this year. The ministry is also working as partners in a study for diabetics organized by one of Prague’s best medical facilities (hospitals).
