JULY MISSION FOCUS
WEC International in Burundi
This month we are focusing on the McGoldrick family. Stephen and Catherine McGoldrick have worked with WEC International in Burundi since 2015. They have adopted two boys since being in Burundi, Jacques and Asher, who are now both 4 years old.
What is the McGoldricks' ministry?
Stephen is pioneering the work of Acts13 in Burundi, East Africa and Congo. Stephen works alongside his Burundian colleague called Aloys, leading the Acts13 work. They liaise with, train and mentor church leaders, individuals and groups who feel called into cross-cultural mission. Since early 2019, they have built up a team of mobilisers across Kenya, Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi.
In early 2020 they had hoped to run training in Uvira, across the border in Congo, but the spread of Covid-19 meant it was not possible. Now, all land borders are closed and so additional trainings planned in Kenya, Rwanda, and Uganda are postponed for the immediate future.
Catherine plays a supporting role in the ministry, but she is still involved with training and coaching leaders of a local, Burundian NGO, New Generation, working to develop Christian leadership amongst young people. Since Covid-19 numbers started to rise in Burundi however, she has been at home, homeschooling Jacques and Asher.
For time and creativity in the coming weeks to generate training materials for the mobilisers in Rwanda and Kenya.
For wisdom regarding timing a trip by bus to Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda, later this year.
Stephen and Aloys are mentoring two Burundian couples who feel called to join a mission team reaching unreached peoples in East Africa. Please pray as they work with the couples and with their church in training, and raising awareness and building capacity in the church in their role as a sending church.
For wisdom and contacts with the appropriate people in the UK as Stephen and Catherine work on the boys' adoption being recognised there.
