Ministries Making a Difference

National Bible Bee, Medical Teams International, Springboard Home, Mission Eurasia

The National Bible Bee launches its 8-week summer study June 7. The inductive study will cover the topic of “Witness,” and encourages Bible reading, study, memorization, and community. Registration ends May 31 and is open to students ages 5 to 18. Participants will also have the opportunity to qualify for the National Bible Bee Competition, where the top 120 students in each age division can compete for more than $100,000 in prize money. The national competition takes place in November in Covington, Kentucky.  

Medical Teams International is partnering with World Vision and Airlink to ship medical supplies to hospitals and clinics in Ethiopia’s Tigray region, where an estimated million Ethiopians have been displaced due to violence and conflict since November 2020. The shipments will include seven pallets of syringes, sterile table covers, gowns, and surgical packs, according to MTI. The humanitarian crisis in Ethiopia has left hospitals without critical supplies despite an increase in patients needing medical attention. 

Springboard Home, an addiction recovery program in Tucson, Arizona, provides counseling and care for teen girls seeking healing from addiction and trauma. The 3- to 5-month residential program includes Bible study, counseling, and life skills training. The program also includes training and workshops for parents, including communication, conflict management, and group counseling sessions. Springboard Home is part of the Assemblies of God Adult & Teen Challenge ministry. 

Mission Eurasia is preparing to host another year of summer Bible camps for students with little access to the gospel. This year’s camps will be a hybrid of in-person and online and may include up to 18,000 students. Participants include orphans, children from remote, unreached regions of Siberia, refugee children from Ukraine and Armenia, and those from Muslim regions. Each child will receive a Bible, and will be invited to connect with small Bible groups and local churches.
