Dr. Dave and Margie Burgess

Dave is serving as an orthopedic surgeon with the Beit Cure Hospital in Blantyre, Malawi along with his wife Margie.  They are serving through SIM and EPC World Outreach.  They have been sharing the gospel with the people of Malawi, as well as meeting the people’s physical needs.  As they shared in a recent letter, “It looks as though we will be leaving Malawi on a permanent basis in March or April 2016. Although we hope to continue to come and go to the hospital to help with the work, there are many reasons why we may not be able to continue to live here full time.  http://sim.org/

Advancing Native Mission (ANM) is a US-based agency called to seek out, evaluate, and send support to indigenous mission groups throughout the world. They advocate for, encourage, and equip indigenous missionaries around the world to hasten world evangelization.  Specifically, we support the ministry of Sister Miriam, who serves God by sharing the gospel in South Asia, primarily with people on a small island community.  She carries copies of Luke and Acts and the Jesus Film, which she shows and distributes as often as she is able.  http://advancingnativemissions.com
