BMS World Mission is a Christian mission organisation, working in around 35 countries on four continents.

BMS workers and partners strive every day to make Jesus known and share the full life he brings. From legal work to surgery, food projects to education, BMS works with local partners, providing help where it is most needed, among the most marginalised and least evangelised people in the world. We do this thanks to the support of UK Christians, individuals and churches, who share our vision for a world made better through Christ's grace.

Stalham Baptist Church gives 5% of all general offerings to this cause. From time to time receive letters and even visits from the particular missionary workers that we are supporting. Below are samples of the letters received...

Annet Ttendo Miller and Damien Miller

Dear Friends,

It is our pleasure to inform you that we are planning our next home assignment in the UK, and hope to be with you next summer. It will be a particularly exciting time for the Miller family, as it will be Patience’s first visit to the UK and her first time to meet Damien’s side of the family in person.

Damien is also excited because his father is returning to the UK in May, having lived in Belize since 2010. It has been five years since they last saw each other, and Damien’s father has never met Annet and Patience.

Of course we are also eager to visit the churches that support the work God is doing through the Mozambican Christian lawyers, to meet those who have been praying for us and to talk with you about our experiences in Mozambique. In the meantime, below is an update on our activities since we last wrote to you in September.

13th – 15th April is when Thai New Year is celebrated, it is called Songkran - Water Festival. When the temperature hits 40 degrees Celsius and above, it is the perfect time for Thailand’s Songkran Water Festival, to cool down! The festival starts off on a serious note, by honouring the elders, pouring fragrant water & flowers in their hands...and then... It’s time for the largest water fight across the whole of Thailand for 3 days!

There are 543 years’ difference between the Buddhist calendar and the Gregorian calendar. With Songkran being the start of the New Year. So, 2017 in Thailand the year is 2560! ...
