By Paul Cooper (NZCMS Council Chairperson)
Looking back over 2015 we can appreciate God’s many blessings. The work of the NZCMS office has been excellent, effectively supporting our Mission Partners and producing first rate publications that keep us informed and active in our prayers and giving. Thank you, Steve Maina and team. A sign of the quality of our publications is that a number of parishes are using Intermission for home group studies. Please encourage groups in your parish to do the same. I also hope you’ve enjoyed the interesting and informative summary of our work in NZCMS Snapshot 2016.
Last year we launched the 2015–2020 Strategic Plan with our focus of “Enthusing, Equipping, and Engaging people for God’s global mission.” We continue to be grateful for your encouragement and support. It’s your involvement through prayer and financial giving that has strengthened NZCMS and made it possible for our Mission Partners to continue carrying out God’s work and for new endeavours to start.
This year’s AGM will see the announcement of the results of the election of a new Council. You’re invited to the AGM in Christchurch on Saturday March 19.
May God richly bless you and the work of NZCMS
Paul Cooper (NZCMS Council Chairperson).
The NZCMS AGM will be followed by a 'CMS Conversation' at 7pm, featuring a partner working in the Middle East. Come to be challenge and inspired about what God is doing in our world and how we can all get involved.
