International (MNN) — AMG
International is celebrating 65 years of ministry this year. With international growth in 55 countries,
AMG's Paul Jenks says they're focusing their evangelistic vision on the Muslim
"Right now we're investigating opportunities to do newspaper
evangelism. We hope also to expand our childcare ministry. We currently have sponsorships through
strategic partnerships. St. Luke's Hospital is in the process of being
expanded, more than doubling the floor space of that hospital."
A Gospel ad placed in secular newspapers and
magazines is a method that AMG has used for more than 50 years to spread the
truths of the Bible. It is effective
because it enters homes of Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, and others who might
never have an opportunity to talk to a Christian and might even avoid any
Christian that crossed their paths.
Children under the care of AMG
receive a hot, nutritious meal and a snack each day. The health condition of
each child is monitored carefully, and vitamins are given to provide additional
nutrients. The kids also have access to education and tutoring.
Child-care center staff encourage children to take advantage of every opportunity they have to learn new skills. Kids are given new clothes and shoes
periodically, but more importantly, they are given a clear presentation of
the Gospel with the hope that each child will become a Christian and reach
his or her world for Christ.
Hospital in Thessalonica, Greece, has earned the reputation of being one
of the best hospitals in Eastern Europe and in
the Balkan region. That reputation has brought about an urgent need for
expansion. The team treats the patient as a whole
person – providing medical care for the body and ministering the Good News
for the soul’s wellbeing.
Fast ministry growth can be heady
and distracting at times, but Jenks says that AMG works to meet people at
the point of their need. "We will continue to stay focused on the Word of
God. AMG is a mission that does outreach.
We want the continued focus to be that God's Word will be
proclaimed in all that we do and that we will see fruit for His
kingdom." Click here if you want
