Core Training in Atlanta

Wednesday, 27 August 2014 14:43

CORE Training is in full gear here at Encompass. The group has been learning many things about the ministry, vision, and history of Encompass World Partners. We've enjoyed digging into scripture to understand God's plan of salvation for The Nations and how deeply He cares for each people group. Being in Atlanta, we've been able to sample some of the great food from many different places around the world. Check out this picture of our group eating at the Chinatown Food Court!

International Identity Initiative

Tuesday, 29 July 2014 21:03

The Charis International Identity Initiative Global Task Force is meeting this week in Atlanta. Wow, what a mouthful, and what does it mean? They are a group of leaders representing the global Grace Brethren movement (Charis) and are attempting to forge a document which will be acceptable to all groups involved which answers the question, "What, exactly, is a Grace Brethren and what do Grace Brethren believe?"


God works in such wonderful ways to encourage His children! We were blessed to meet these great girls who are from the Central African Republic who are here with their youth group from Virginia! The Momentum offering was taken for the people in their country and one young lady said, "It makes me feel proud." Please continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in CAR.

Four Typhoons to hit Philippines

Wednesday, 23 July 2014 14:56

Ted Ruiz, Encompass staff in the Philippines, writes that during their ten days in the States two typhoons have struck the Philippines.

“The 1st, Rasmussen/Glenda (Category 4), struck on July 16 and caused extensive damage in Metro Manila and especially in Bicol. The damage was mostly due to strong winds. There was little flooding. Almost 100 have died so far. To our knowledge, none of our believers have been hurt. The 2nd, Matmo/Henry, just a few days later, caused some flooding in Bicol and in the north, and then veered away. Two more typhoons are forecast to hit the Philippines within the next few days."
