I have had the opportunity to host visitors from, and to personally visit Scripture Union projects in, various places around the world including Ukraine, Lativa, Singapore, Israel and Tajikistan.

It is really exciting to hear first hand stories of how God is working through dedicated staff and volunteers who share his kingdom love with children, young people and families in so many countries through teaching his word in their own languages and contexts.

I've had the privilege of being in a room full of people worshiping God in three different languages simultaneously, as well as having had the opportunity to build long-lasting friendships with fellow believers around the world. This includes celebrating together in the good times & standing together in tougher times. Please remember to pray for those who lead and/ or attend SU projects in countries where they do not have the same freedom as we have.
