Bogotá, Colombia - Where can you find testimonies from church leaders in the Global South, perspectives on current events from global Anabaptist church leaders, and keep up with the latest resources and events in the Mennonite World Conference community? In MWC Info, a monthly newsletter that points to news and stories on our website.

Subscribers around the world receive Info free in MWC’s official three languages – and soon more. If you’ve appreciated these stories, please consider including MWC Communications in your year-end giving. Here are a few of the ways your donation makes a difference:

  1. Stories from the global church help us to grow. When we discover the global Anabaptist family through Mennonite World Conference Communications, we become part of something larger than us. The maturity and energy of other congregations instructs and inspires us to remain faithful in following Jesus in our context. We move past an attitude of “we know better,” into one of working together and learning from each other.
  2. We can better support each other in our global family. When we pray for each other, we help bear each other’s burdens. With the MWC Prayer Network, and prayers in Info and on Facebook, we better know how to pray for brothers and sisters around the world.
  3. We hear from people from each continent: “My spiritual journey,” a testimony of the first woman ordained to the Brethren in Christ Church in southern Africa; “We need each other” a report on Northeast Asian regional representative Kyong Jung Kim’s visit with Japanese churches; “My Cry is Heard” World Fellowship Sunday worship resources prepared by our European churches; “The road to peace after the plebiscite in Colombia,” reflections on the role of churches in Colombia’s long awaited peace process by Latin American (Andean) regional representative and peacebuilding professional Pablo Stucky.
  4. You, and brothers and sisters around the world, can access all of our content and resources for free! We offer stories, resources, and the Courier magazine for free to Anabaptists, churches and church leaders around the world in English, Spanish and French. In 2016 we have begun to work on having some content also available in German, Hindi, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. We are only able to provide this free resource due to the generosity of donors and supporters.

Consider donating to sustain this important work of virtually gathering the global family.
