Over the last 37 years, Milton Keynes Christian, through our partnership with LightForce International, has had the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in the world.As a church, we are totally committed to bringing good news to the poor and practical help to those in need in other parts of the world. It’s almost 40 years since LightForce International and Milton Keynes Christian Centre began. We’ve been on the move, both in Milton Keynes and around the world, trying to make a difference in people’s lives - and succeeding.
Around the world there are huge needs and LightForce, with your help, is seeking to address needs in Uganda and in India. Your contributions over the last year have made a difference in many people’s lives. We can’t change everybody’s life, but we can change the lives of some. We value not only your financial contributions but your encouragement and your prayer support. And we ask that throughout the coming year, you would continue to give and pray as you have been doing and if possible, help us make an even greater impact. With your help we’re looking forward this coming year to continuing to make an impact in lives.
MISSIONS WORKER SUPPORT - £15,000 We would like to ask you to support Beth Henderson who is working as part of LightForce. Beth provides excellent UK support for the activities of LightForce as well as developing the support base of the charity. With her background in education she also is key to the ongoing development and training of our staff and teachers in the nursery and school in Lira, Uganda.
UGANDA - £38,000 In Uganda, we are working hard to educate children and give them a hope and a future. Children from the age of three are sponsored to go to our schools - through nursery, primary, and then the option to go to secondary school, or university, or to go onto vocational training. For those raised in poverty, having the chance to get an education, changes their entire future and gives them the prospect of work in the future.
INDIA - £16,000 LightForce is on the move. In India we are working with the Gospel Mission, ‘Home of Faith’ and working in some of the most impenetrable areas of India, where there’s huge opposition to the / Gospel. We are passionate about sharing the love of Jesus, through practical help and support, with those who need to hear the Good News. We are supporting tuition projects where children get further teaching in the addition to traditional schooling, which in some areas is of poor quality. We are training Bible School students, who go to work in such areas - often at great personal risk to their lives. We are also supporting children’s homes, where children are looked after, receive education, medical treatment and are prepared to live their lives independently, with a hope and a future.
