Part of Joyce’s ministry working part time in the AGWM Africa Regional Office is training and working with our Missionary Associates; these are people who are going to Africa for a 1-2 year assignment.
We have Pre-field Orientation three times a year; March, June and October. In October’s PFO, we had 11 MA units who attended. This is our largest group of MAs so far; we are thankful for the wonderful group of short term missionaries that God is calling to help establish God’s Kingdom across Africa. Many of these MAs will come back after their assignment and apply for career missionary status.
We can not post a picture from the commissioning service because 9 of the 11 MA units are going to sensitive areas and cannot have their pictures posted on any social media sites. To do so, would endanger them, their team members and even the Christians that are living in the areas they are going.
Pray for these MAs along with all of our roughly 200 career missionary units spread across the African continent.
