News in Brief

A New Team Member

Voluntary Representatives are valued members of the SGA family.

With their local knowledge and sincere dedication,
they can help extend and strengthen the partnerships SGA enjoys with local Christians and churches. It is therefore encouraging to be able to welcome a new member to the team.

John Little is married to Tracy and is a member and deacon at Reeth Evangelical Congregational Church in the Yorkshire Dales.

He has been a UCCF staff-worker, an RE teacher and a prison chaplain. As well as his role with SGA, he serves part-time as a Free Church Prison Chaplain and a Prison Ministry Associate with Daylight Christian Prison Trust.

Please pray for John and Tracy as they build relationships and report on the work of God in Eastern Europe, Central Asia & Far East Russia.

Project70 reaches Uzbekistan

The following concerns a brother serving in the faith-restricted country of Uzbekistan, Central Asia, supported through SGA’s 70th Anniversary Project.

He is married with four young children and is pastor of a house church in his community. The church group consists of indigenous people, Uzbeks and Tajiks, traditionally viewed as Muslim.

The government does not allow such indigenous Christian groups, so the church is ‘unregistered’. This brother writes:

It is not safe for us to have a big building and gather there. We have small home groups in three locations. Our vision is to start more home groups in each region of our big country.

Pray for him. He has been asked to be the Co-ordinator of Christian house churches in his country.
