Connect Newsletter
March 2022

Dear friend,  
“See, I am doing a new thing!” God’s plan to move in and through his followers is on full display in these words from Isaiah. He desires for us to be part of his work in this world. When we align our dreams to his will, we can reach beyond our comfort zones as he invites us to step into new opportunities.  

This newsletter is filled with exciting new things. We are pleased to share our 2021 Annual Report which explores BIC stories from around the world. We report on the challenges and successes that the staff of Macha Mission Hospital experienced over the past two years. You will also find new information about our 2022 General Assembly and discover a new project to aid refugees in the Middle East.

We hope that the content of this newsletter will prompt you to ask God what new thing he wants to do in your life.
