Central America (MNN) — In a country we can’t name for safety reasons, Christians are running out of time. Vision Beyond Borders contacts are in danger of losing one of their central distribution centers. The home they are currently renting for ministry use is being sold.

Over 100 pastors in this closed country are supported by VBB, and they receive supplies from the ministry contacts mentioned above.

“We have worked with these contacts for many years, and they are faithful servants,” VBB communicates in a recent newsletter.

“They continually sacrifice for their country; they continue to evangelize and meet the needs of pastors. They sacrifice their own safety to see God’s kingdom expanded.”

Would you please pray that VBB and these ministry partners can raise $40,000 dollars for a new location? If you’d like to help by donating, click here.

In addition, VBB reports that their contacts are running low on ministry supplies. A short-term mission team could bring needed items into the country in February. However, VBB would need to receive everything at their main office by February 12.

Here’s a list of needed items:

  • Hand tools for construction
  • Pocket folders
  • External hard drives
  • Fishing supplies (nets, nylon line, hooks, lures, etc.)
  • Projector for movies
  • Watches that are in good repair
  • Office supplies
  • Clown supplies (shoes, costume, make-up, etc.)
  • Children’s ministry supplies
  • Medical supplies
  • Wooden clothes pins
  • Sheets and pillow cases for double beds
  • Sewing supplies (fabric, thread, needles, patterns, etc.)

Call VBB at (406) 587-2321 to find out which supplies are needed most and how you can best help the ministry get what they need.

There are also two projects that need additional funding in order to reach completion. One is a construction project that would complete a bathroom for a new church. According to VBB, $600 is needed to cover all materials and labor costs. The second project involves putting the finishing touches on a church; ministry partners need approximately $1,300.
