Abby Penglase returned to Equador in December 2021 after a 2 year break, to resume her work, being unable to go back earlier due to pandemic travel restrictions.
She is currently preparing to relocate to live nearer to the Saraguro people in Loja Province, (who she was working with for 2 years) in southern Equador. This is where God has called her to minister to children in particular, and disciple believers, with the support of her SIM team members.

Care Outreach is a non-denominational Christian organisation with a vision to see transformed lives and communities. Their mission is to care for the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of people in rural and remote South Western Queensland. This is achieved through regular face-to-face visitation, food hampers and vouchers to spend in local towns.

Jean Claude and Joyce began working in Malawi in January 2019 with Baptist Mission Australia. In their second Term they will both keep their focus on making disciples. Joyce will train a group of Yao women to sew so they have the skills to make, repair and sell clothes. This will give them a sense of hope and empowerment.

The purpose of Outback Aerial Mission is simply to present the Christian gospel to people in the outback, and to encourage them in their personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. The area they service in Central Western Queensland covers 220,000 square kilometres – an area three times the size of Tasmania! Which is why the plane is an integral
element in this ministry.
