Encompass World Partners has received a Vital Worship Grant from the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship (CICW) in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

The grant will fund a year-long project and is one of 31 grants totaling more than $300,000 awarded for 2014 by the CICW to churches, schools and seminaries across North America.

“We learn a tremendous amount from these programs,” said CICW director John Witvliet, “from the wisdom demonstrated in designing them and the insights gleaned from implementing and adapting them as they unfold. We look forward to sharing insights from these projects with a larger audience in our future programming over the next several years."

Leaders of the Honor-Shame project are grateful for the prayers and eager to get started.

Recent Update from Dr. Augustin Hibaile
Saturday, 12 April 2014 19:33

Dr. Hibaile sends greetings “from the unsafe part of the world”. He writes, “I have gained experience these past two weeks in humanitarian assistance to Internally Displaced People (IDP) in a camp with Humedica International from Germany. Kits of food and non food items were given to 500 families who were satisfied and thankful for the aid. The catholic Priest who manages the IDPs in their compound was pleased and has asked me if he could share some of his spiritual concerns with me. Please pray that I will have an opportunity to meet him. We have one more distribution in this camp.

There have been conflicting reports on the condition of Evangelist Clisson. At latest word (Monday, April 7), he is alive.

Missionary Beate Schlecht writes, "After we got news that Clisson passed away, Nestor called me just half an hour ago to tell me that "il est ressuscité de la mort" ( He has awakened from the dead!) So whatever that means, he is still alive! I think he went into a coma and praise God they didn´t bury him alive. Thank you for your continued prayers for Clisson and his family.

Julio and Joanne Marín have sensed the Lord’s call to go to Japan for many years. Over the last 4 years, they pursued how God wanted them to go and connected with Encompass where they were approved as appointees. As they continue to pursue the next season of training for working with Japanese, it made sense to consider partnering with Cecil O’Dell and the Encompass Japanese Ministry in greater Los Angeles.
