O sing unto the Lord a new song :
Missions project for Mayotte
The team of Ecclémusica would like to share about a new project that will enable local churches to “declare God’s glory among the nations” (Psalm 96:3), one of the goals of our association.
Krim Lahsinat, a missionary on the Muslim island of Mayotte, has requested 2000 copies of our children’s Bible story CD. Several churches in Paris are already in the process of putting together a humanitarian shipment of clothes and food for his ministry. The CDs will be added to the same container, set to leave France in mid-March 2017. If you or your church would like to help sponsor these CDs as a missionary project, you can send a gift to Open Door Baptist Missions, for the fund “Kristi Colas-Bible story CDs.” Ecclémusica has spent about $2000 for the duplication of the CDs for this project.
The Lahsinat family has been serving in Mayotte for several years, having been sent by churches in Mexico and French Guyana. Last year they also joined a French missionary organization (AMEBI). Because of its geographical location (between Madagascar and the Comores Islands) and its political affiliation (a French overseas territory and therefore part of the European Union), Mayotte attracts many illegal immigrants. When the adults are forced to leave, they often abandon their children in Mayotte hoping that they will have a better life. The Lahsinats use humanitarian aid as a way of building relationships for Gospel-proclamation. Although not all of the inhabitants speak French, the Lahsinats have found Ecclémusica’s Bible story CDs to be useful in their ministry in past years.
A short video about their ministry is available at this link. On their site you can also read Krim’s fascinating testimony and read his latest prayer letter.
Please join us in praying for this missionary family and this project! May the word of the Lord “run and be glorified” (2 Thess. 3.1).
Many thanks in advance for your willingness to consider this missions project in your missions budget for 2017.
In Gospel fellowship,
