Hopefully, many of you are now familiar with CMF's Global Track? It's currently a group of 25 students or newly qualified health care professionals who wish to explore how God might call them to serve him in global health and mission. The Track is made up of seminars in London, webinars, an international trip, taking part in the Developing Health Course (12-24 July), and having a mentor walking alongside them on their journey of exploration and learning.
One participant recently wrote: ''In the past, my view of God tended to be restricted to what he was doing in my life or the lives of those around me. On the Global Track, I learnt about the history of global mission - 'the West to the rest'. But mission today is more 'everyone to everywhere'. This has helped me to really understand the Lord has been establishing his worldwide kingdom since the beginning, and he will continue doing so into eternity. He is at work, and he invites us to join Him.'Among the first cohort of 24 in 2017-2018, two are currently working overseas, six have been abroad on an elective, six are actively planning to work overseas, three are undertaking further studies related to global health and mission, and two are actively engaged in global health work from within the UK.
Let's thank God for all that He is doing in and through the lives of our members. 'Attentive to God'
CMF Global is arranging a retreat 18 to 19 July at the London School of Theology. This is for those engaged in global health and mission who want to take time out to spend time with God. To get away from the busy schedules of clinics, overseas life, visits in the UK for mission agencies, or seeing family and friends. Why not take two days to come away and seek God in a led retreat with others who understand your working environment? There will be a chance to rest, read, pray, talk and worship. Do book through the website (cmf.li/39Z1Gm8), or pass to colleagues or mission partners who may be interested.
