Tirana, Dhaka, Lima and Bromley, just four of the places the latest BMS Engage magazine takes you to

19 May 2020

Issue 47 of Engage, the BMS World Mission magazine is quite an eye-opener. Yes there are four words on the cover and admittedly much of page 4 is given over to the launch of a “Christian response to a global pandemic” appeal but apart from that neither Coronavirus nor Covid-19 get a mention. 

Instead, amongst other features we find a story about about The Big Read, a challenge set by one London church to read the entire New Testament in a single weekend. We meet Esther Sarker an inspirational teacher providing pre-school learning in Bangladesh. We read a letter from physiotherapist Rexhina Uzuni who helps rebuild the broken lives of earthquake victims and who is based in a BMS supported community centre in Albania. And when we do finally reach the back cover we are met with a stern warning in bold black capitals that coming soon is a new BMS video featuring Operation CHAD that will “inspire your church.” 

If you want a break from the daily grind of lockdown charts and stats and instead want to read something positive look no further than ENGAGE. 

Engage and its accompanying Prayer Guide are both available free of charge either through the post or online here. To read Issue 47 or to sign up for future editions simply follow the link.
