“How beautiful on the mountain are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” (Isaiah 52:7)
In the remote villages of Afghanistan, something important is happening, with your support. Engaged in mission together, the church and BMS are helping to save the lives of mothers and babies who are dying from preventable illnesses and birthing complications.
On Sunday, through our video Life’s First Cry, we met Andisha, who gave birth to 11 babies, each of which died within a few months. For more than a decade, Andisha was a mum without any children. Your support for BMS made it possible for a group of local women and men to go to her village to teach the community a BMS-supported safe-birthing course. Andisha now has two beautiful children, and says: “The workshop you made possible has made all the difference in the world.”
Your gifts to BMS enable mission in remote, difficult places where you can’t go – but they save the lives of babies in Afghanistan, and help families who have been through unimaginable pain and suffering. As good disciples, we are partnering to labour together, in the here and now, to bring the new creation Jesus announced fully to life. And to try to make sure that ‘babies don’t die here anymore’. Thank you from everyone in BMS, but especially our Afghanistan team, for your support.
