All of ABM's projects give witness to the transforming love of God – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and bear the “marks of mission”. Where possible they seek to remedy or alleviate the actual causes of need and injustice to provide sustainable change and benefits.
ABM's Executive Director, The Rev'd John Deane says, "I am often asked why we should continue to commit to overseas work when there is need here in our own backyard. My response is fairly simple. Firstly, the gospel knows no boundaries and nor should we. Secondly, it gives us a perspective on how affluent and fortunate we are and how much we have to share – both here and there! Thirdly, God calls us to mission so that we grow as well. Our Partners may not be rich but they are usually spiritually blessed and have much to share and teach us in return."
Today, as has always been the case, kind and generous acts of love and humility are carried out in our world, on a daily basis. For those of our Partners serving through the Anglican Church, the call to care for the poorest of the poor, whether in spiritual or material worth is a call to love and to justice. Often this work is hard and gruelling and even dangerous – your prayers uphold the many long hours of commitment given by our Partners to those in need. Thank you for your ongoing prayers, your trust in the work being done and your support as together we make a difference and bring hope to the lives of thousands of people.
