Allen's Support Letter Feb 2021
Dear Friends and supporters. Please find attached our recent letter. Life here has been more hectic than ever before, if that is possible.
A quick update with the letter... Last night I had even more new people connect from some of the more remote parts of NW Argentina. The seminary has become a major challenge since virtual connections are erasing the lines between resident seminaries and extension seminaries. We're having to adapt as we go, but in our culture, people are accustomed to leaving things to the last minute and then showing up physically.
Thanks again for everything - His and yours - Rod and Jackie

ALSO - Prayer Requests....as she begins teaching a Youth Discipleship Training Program for 10 months
Please pray for good preparation time - limited distractions so I can soak up all the time I need to prepare for each program.
Pray for me to remember the stories well and be able to speak so that the youth can clearly understand.
Pray for the youth, that they will come with a thirst and desire to know and love God more.
Pray against any distractions that Satan will try and use to attack this training time.
Praise God for the opportunity to share God's Word and to encourage youth to grow in their walk with the Lord.

Peters Prayer Needs Feb 2021
Doug and I wanted to share how God has opened the door for World Impact to be in collaboration with Trauma Healing Institute (THI: https://traumahealinginstitute.org/about) and Quest Movement ministry (https://www.questmovement.org/about) in the commitment to heal the wounds of trauma in our communities. We are responding to a long overdue health service that recognizes that trauma has and does affect every part of a person as well as a collective group (mind, body and spirit). And for this reason, we are humbled to walk alongside our urban leaders and churches to help serve our communities with this much needed resource.
We are having our first virtual Generational Trauma Healing Groups (Quest Movement) in the west region on Mondays and Thursdays starting on February 8th from 6pm to 9pm and desire to have your prayer support. The facilitators will be led by Karin, Sia, Deborah, and Cynthia. And we just found out today that we are at full capacity! So humbled!
We are believing God is going to move in mighty ways during these healing group and will open more doors for churches to receive God’s fruitful gift of healing for wounded hearts!
If you have any questions or need more history of how we came this trauma healing need, please don’t hesitate to connect with us. We would love to share more.

Transforming Souls Together,
Doug and Cynthia Peters
P.S. I’ve attached a prayer guide to this email.

Block's Prayer Letter/Update January 2021
Latest from the Block's. A short introductory note here - then read their January 2021 Prayer Letter and Update via the downloaded attachment.
Dear Saints,
In 2021 it will be exceedingly difficult to stay focused on Jesus. Health, earthly riches, safety . . . much of what we have now . . . will be significantly threatened or even reduced. But Jesus Himself will still be fully ours: "My Jesus! I love Thee! I know thou art mine!"
And so we are eagerly spending TIME . . . taking Jesus' advice (in Lk.21) to get still, and wait on Him in private prayer.
Saints. Don't wait. Use these weeks in January already (and then use this whole winter!) to: STRENGTHEN yourselves!
. . . by spending TIME with Jesus in private prayer. . . so that you'll BE ABLE to persevere / BE ABLE to get through these last days with your own life of loyalty and loving obedience to Jesus still intact at the end of it all. If you draw near to Him, then He will draw near to you! If you humble yourself in private prayer then engaging with Him will give you the strength / "grace" that you and those around you are going to need.

Please read our 2021 WINTER prayer letter attached. We are in absolute need of God's action in response to your prayers.
Thank you so very very much for every mention of us to the Lord when you pray!
Much love, David & Sherry Block
p.s. Please forgive us for failing to respond to recent correspondence from supporting churches. We were unusually overwhelmed with intense, ministry, family and local situations in December. Thank you so much for your patience. We never want to take your decades-long devotion in prayer for us . . . for granted. "We owe you!" We are indebted.

Charity Cadieux - An Unexpected Journey
What can I even write?! To begin with, it has been an unexpected journey to get to Ghana. It has been hard, confusing, exciting, scary, frustrating and filled with laughter and tears. I have never cried so much in airports in my life and for so many varying reasons. One thing I have learned – face masks are good at hiding the tears (unless there are so many that the bottom becomes soggy 🙂)

It's Thanksgiving weekend and I have so much to be thankful for. I was hoping that I would have a small story of how I got back to Ghana, but instead I feel like I could write a book. I will write more in the coming days but today I wanted to give you the best news. I MADE IT, I MADE IT!!!!! My weary feet have smacked down on Ghana soil in the midst of a storm and I am so very grateful. What a special weekend to celebrate as I have so much to be thankful for. So many people have prayed and encouraged, helped and supported me to get here. God is so gracious and faithful as He went with me each step of the way. I felt His love so tangibly in the people who helped me in each part of my journey. Thank you God for bringing me back home and for each and every one along the way. My heart is full, I am profoundly grateful! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!

Just wanted to let you know about one of our students Manuel and Marta.

Enjoy and blessings on you. Please continue to pray with us for classes to start up in January.

Allen's Update - September 2020 Prayer Letter
Dear Friends and Supporters:
Life has been very challenging here recently, especially in September.
A quick update from the last 24 hours. Salta is going back to a phase 1 quarantine (we've now gone over 190 days with one form or another of isolation). That means only the bare minimum amount of travel except in emergency cases. This time the extension is for 3 weeks instead of 2. A new ministry has opened up. I have six families who are contacting me almost daily in regards to their own COVID infections. The government follow-up system is mostly bureaucratic paperwork to accumulate data. I'm the go-between for checking in that they aren't getting worse and answering questions such as "is the rash on my knees due to COVID".

Pray for the doctors I work with, especially the heads of private hospitals. Due to some mis-management by the government, their hospitals could go broke since they were not allowed to treat patients for months and then overnight were forced to take on hundreds of patients who supposedly have health care, but who's providers are usually six to nine months behind in paying the hospitals. In the medical world in Argentina, the majority of what is needed for COVID emergencies is imported and a private hospital can't just go out and buy several dozen ICU respiratory machines. The machines are priced in dollars and that's another story. At present, there are five different exchange rates for the dollar ranging from 73 to 150 pesos to the dollar with the higher amount being what a hospital would have to pay to import machines, if they could get them through customs which are currently shut down due to the virus....

Thanks again for all of your prayers and financial support - His and yours - Rod and Jackie Allen

Covid-19 - Thoughts from a Missionary
In what ways do “Current Covid Social Distancing Living”(CSDL) and “Missionary Daily Living”(MDL) look similar?
Written by a Missionary Friend. Thought this might be an encouraging read during this pandemic time – and maybe bring an appreciation for where we are and lead us to pray and think of our missionaries who face this every day.

Charity Cadieux -April 2020
Hi Church Family,

I hope that you are all doing well. I have been on my home assignment here in Canada for 8 months out of a 9 month term which will probably (and sadly) be extended due to the COVID crisis. These last weeks have been completely different than the plans I made. One thing that has been so evident to me is that the church is the body of Christ. I miss the meeting together here in Canada and in Ghana because the church is the people of God, not a building. In Ghana, not all villages have their own building, some meet in a house, under a tree or in a classroom. Does this diminish the beauty of the body of Christ? Not at all because it is about the people that have gathered, its about the relationship and love we have for each other and for our neighbours, it is a place that we can gather together in unity and worship the most amazing and wonderful God. We hear God’s word given and are challenged and encouraged to grow in our faith and love of Jesus. We go forth into the week with this beautiful gift of the Body. The virus may have ‘seemed’ to steal this from us…yet I am hearing how God is giving new opportunities to the church around the world to reach out in creative ways. It is exciting to see how God will use us in this particularly difficult and unfamiliar season of life. I have taken it for granted and mourn the loss of something that may not be possible for some time. But I am also seeing the beauty of what God is and will do with unifying the body of Christ and mobilizing the church for His kingdom work. I am praying for SCC, for churches in Canada, in Ghana and around the world as we navigate this new world and continue to build God’s kingdom.

Here is a little clip of a church that meets in a classroom in a village called Sakalu. It's one of the places that I love to be - praising Jesus together with these precious people. Please pray that God would strengthen their faith and love for Him and that they would be unified and committed to loving their community. Copy and paste the link:

Allen, April 2020
Dear Friends, Supporters, Churches, et. al. (I'm never quite sure what that means but it's fun to write)...

Here is a quick update from the quarantine in Argentina. The nice thing is, we live on a spacious property so we don't feel shut in. Besides the letter I'm attaching, we have some more news for your prayers. Some of you may remember us talking about two ladies who were very sick when we left Argentina for home assignment in January 2019. Eva died a year ago this month. I was in contact with Emilda several times in the past 10 days. She was finally sent to Buenos Aires where she was diagnosed with stomach cancer. Due to the change of governments and the Corona Virus, she missed two months of chemotherapy since the hospital here in Salta didn't have any medication since all funding has been channeled into virus control.

After conversing with her son, I was able to make contacts with a network of pharmacies and we were able to get her the medication she needed. It took a week to arrive and last Monday she came to Salta to have her labwork. She called Monday night to let me know she needed more medication for the chemo on Tuesday morning. Getting to the main pharmacy in town involves going through seven police checks, but the medications were in and we were able to get it to her about 10 PM Monday. Tuesday she had her chemo and returned to her home town, a four hour drive from Salta. She is down from 32 kilos to 25 kilos of weight, but has responded well to the chemotherapy when she can get it. She's due to be back in Salta in 3 weeks for a check up and then they'll determine if they can section her stomach to get rid of the cancer. This has been a rough two years for her and her family.

Thanks again for praying and helping support our part in God's ministry in Argentina - Rod and Jackie
