The season of Lent provides an opportunity to journey again into the wilderness in expectation of encountering God. ABM is pleased to release 5 new videos which share experiences of God’s mission from around the world. We invite you to reflect upon these video stories in your own personal devotions, in a study group or as part of worship or a larger gathering.

A DVD, together with four new posters and any envelopes that have been requested, were mailed to parishes and schools at the end of January.

To request extra copies of any of the material please contact ABM.
