"If God calls you to be a missionary, don't stoop to be a king." —Amy Carmichael
We are looking for a couple who would be able to serve in the area of Childcare for two upcoming events, May 22-26. During Camp Week (22-24) it would be the children of ABT member and staff families. During EXPLORE ABT (25-26) it would be children of any families attending. We're expecting around 25 children at each event.
This couple would be working with children 6 years and older. We want to see engaging and educational things being done with the children, so if you are creative and adventurous in this area, contact us!
Brothers in Colombia are once again heading toward the jungles. An unexpected invitation came to visit a limited-access people group. However, the area has traditionally been notorious for guerrilla activity, so the travelers may need to adjust their plans along the way. Pray for wisdom, protection, and strategic contact for the advance of the Gospel of the Kingdom.
The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. James 5:16

Do unreached people groups seem far away? Does helping with Bible translation seem out of your reach?
At EXPLORE ABT you will get a taste of how languages work and how to learn them. Hear a Bible translator's stories. Debate the concept of indigenous churches. And have your vision for the nations refreshed!
Lord willing, this event will take place Friday and Saturday, May 25-26. Please pray about joining us those 2 days. We would be honored to have you.
NOTE - Registration ends May 1st.

"True evangelical faith cannot lie dormant. It clothes the naked, it comforts the sorrowful, it shelters the destitute, it serves those that harm it, it binds up that which is wounded, it seeks those who are lost, it becomes all things to all people." —Menno Simons
The next 2 days ABT will be presenting at Charity Missions Conference. This includes both a booth and a Breakout Session, given on Friday and Saturday at 3:00 pm. If you are at this event please stop by our booth—we would love to connect with you.
Below is the description of our Breakout Session:
Our website introduces ABT’s vision and purpose—what ABT is. To further clarify ABT’s function, let’s now look at what ABT is not.
A guiding principle for ABT is that we are neither the Church nor a church. We are committed to remaining a parachurch organization. The “para” in parachurch indicates “alongside” or “beside.” ABT serves the church’s mission by working alongside local churches who are willing to send their members into the field.
