Missionaries

Wakefield Baptist Church – Mission Partners

WBC partners with several mission activities elsewhere in the world.  Some through the Baptist Missionary Society and some through other organisations.  These are people who are members at WBC who have been called to spread God’s word and take their special skills into other countries.

A regular prayer group will soon be established focussing on the work of our missionaries.  Dates and times of these will follow shortly, but the first meeting is Sunday 29th October at WBC at 6.30pm.  Everyone is welcome to join this prayer group.

Mark & Andrea Hotchkin – in Bardai, Chad

Mark and Andrea are working in Bardai which is in the Northern deserts of Chad.  There is an existing hospital which is very under-used and Mark and Andrea are going to expand the work that is undertaken there to help the local villagers with their health issues.  Mark is a surgeon and Andrea is an Obstetrician.  They already have years of experience establishing and running a hospital on the outskirts of Chad’s capital N’Djamena.

Prayer needs for Mark and Andrea:

  • For them to do well learning the local language;
  • For them to be accepted amongst the locals;
  • For the locals to start going to the Bardai hospital instead of travelling 12 hours across borders;
  • For the expansion of services in the hospital to go well;
  • For them to be well physically and spiritually to continue God’s work.

Donations can be made for their work through Wakefield Baptist Church or through the Baptist Missionary Society – http://www.bmsworldmission.org/

Tim and Hannah Flatman – Brazil and South Sudan

Tim and Hannah are working with the marginalised communities in both Brazil and South Sudan.  They are supported by Latin Link (https://www.latinlink.org.uk/)

They share God’s love with the people by working along side them and a local Pastor and his wife, Ivaldo and Giselda.

Tim and Hannah have had their lovely baby Rita and have now gone back to Brazil.  Prayers for Tim and Hannah:-

  • For them to continue their work in Brazil and South Sudan with the added addition of baby Rita;
  • For Tim, Hannah and baby Rita to remain well to do God’s work;
  • For them to know God’s will for all the work they do, so as to be utilised well;
  • For them to continue to have a good ‘rest day’ each week;
  • Pray for their families back home who will obviously miss them, and in particular miss those early months and years of Rita, as she progresses.

Funding for their work can be donated through Wakefield Baptist Church or through Latin Link.
