Proclaim the Lord’s greatness with me.
Let us exalt His name together.

Psalm 34:3 CSB

Praise God for His faithfulness and His work around the world! Here are some highlights of how God has been at work through Avant. Thank you for your partnership that makes this ministry possible!
9,000 Audio Bibles for the Tanzanian People

We reached our goal of purchasing 9,000 audio Bibles this year! As these Bibles are being distributed, people are hearing the Gospel for the first time in their mother tongue and coming to faith in Christ. One man who received a Bible said, “I have heard the truth in the Bible, and I believe in Jesus Christ!” Our workers in Tanzania report that there are 217 new believers and 4 new church plants as a direct result of the Bible distribution. Praise God!

Please pray with us for the ongoing distribution of Bibles. These Bibles are going to difficult areas where Satan’s dominion is strong. Pray for safety for those distributing the Bibles. Pray for good follow up and discipleship with new believers. Pray that these new church plants would be established in the Word and grow in their love for Christ. Pray that God’s Word will continue to spread in Tanzania, and that His name will be glorified.

“I have never had a Bible and I cannot read. I was dependent on someone to read to me and there are few that I know that read. Now I have my own Bible that I can hear the Word with my family and children. Thank you so much!”

New Churches Planted

In 2021 we celebrated new churches in Poland, Western Asia and East Timor. Praise God for drawing people to Himself, and for growing His Church all over the world!

Please pray for each of these churches, that God would continue to unify believers in Christ and that they would be a beautiful testimony of Christ's love to the world.

Solar Panels for Brazil Harvest Radio

Praise God the solar panels have been purchased and the land has been cleared and leveled for instillation. Once the panels are in use, they will significantly cut costs for Harvest Radio and ensure that the people of Brazil receive uninterrupted biblical teaching.

As our team has worked with an engineer and other local workers on this project, they've had opportunities to witness to them. Please pray with us that God will work in their hearts and that He will open more opportunities to share the good news with them.

New Appointees from the Global South

Since our first Spanish missionary training in December of 2020, 17 long and short-term missionaries from Latin America have been appointed to serve in 6 different countries. As they continue to receive training and raise full-time support, this project will provide for some of their one-time startup costs to help them get to the field sooner. Thank you for being a part of sending missionaries to the least reached.

Please pray for our new members who are working hard to raise their support. Many have found it to be a slow and difficult process post pandemic. Pray that God would encourage them in this journey and provide for their needs.

New Missionaries Appointed

16 individuals completed our training in 2021 and were appointed as missionaries. In a year where travel and in person gatherings were difficult, we are praising God for working to make this possible.

Please pray with us that the Lord will raise up more workers to go.

Waterwheels in Central Asia

Thanks to your generosity, we have funds to install three new waterwheels in different villages! The waterwheels are helping meet peoples’ physical needs and are also opening doors for spiritual conversations.

A waterwheel was newly installed in a village, bringing much needed water to the community. After it was installed, our workers sat down to eat with some of the recipients of the waterwheel. They were eager to have spiritual conversations, so they asked one of the men, "how are you preparing for eternity?" The man was taken back by the questions and responded, "we can't take anything with us so how can we prepare?" Our worker clarified, explaining that we can prepare ourselves spiritually for eternity. Seeing that the man was listening and not opposed to the conversation, our worker took the opportunity to tell him how Jesus says we can prepare for eternity and shared with him a simple Gospel message.

Pray for this man, that he will hunger to know God and that we will have more opportunities to share the Gospel with him. Please pray for our team as they install more waterwheels and interact with people who have never heard of Jesus.

Growth at Comunicando Vida in Spain

Comunicando Vida, a ministry in Spain that holds workshops and provides counseling for people in need of emotional and spiritual healing, has seen incredible growth and success! In the context of the pandemic, and with the help of the internet, Comunicando Vida expanded their capacity for ministry, holding more conferences and workshops than they ever did prior to this year.

Two new staff members have been added to the Comunicando Vida team, and there are a growing number of volunteers who desire to serve in this ministry. A workshop was recently held to organize and train volunteers for this outreach. Over 60 people attended. Comunicando Vida is rapidly growing to help people find healing and hope in Jesus Christ.

New Building for Mani del Maestro

Mani del Maestro, in Genoa Italy, serves hurting residents who are struggling with unemployment, substance abuse, and prostitution. This ministry seeks to meet people's physical needs while also sharing the message of Christ love and forgiveness.

This past year, God blessed us with a new building, and it is incredible to think that just one year ago we were only beginning to launch this project. We encountered public office closures due to Covid, supply shortages, and significant price increases related to the building renovations. Despite these obstacles, we finalized the building purchase, obtained necessary work permits, completed renovations and since late November, all regular activities for both the church and Mani del Maestro are being held at the new facility. 

This is significant because one of the primary reasons for a new building was the need for a larger space. Capacity limitations, due to the pandemic, meant that only half the church could meet at one time. Mani del Maestro’s weekly grocery distribution was also hindered since the number of volunteers present meant that only three clients could enter the building at a time, leaving everyone else outside in the cold. The new building has brought much relief, tripling the maximum capacity.

Praise God for his faithfulness and provision, even in the midst of a difficult season. Pray for the Mani del Maestro team as they continue ministering to needy families in Genova. Three men recently placed their faith in Jesus and are considering taking next steps in baptism. We pray they are the first of many to use the baptismal in the new building!  

Progress on the CuriosiTEA Garden in Senegal

We are excited to be finishing the final details at the tea garden and we praise God that CuriosiTEA opened this Spring! The tea garden will be an inviting place for relationship building, purposeful conversations about life and faith, and discipleship.

Our worker on the ground in Dakar says, “We are super encouraged to see the progress of physical change on our property.  Considering the culture in which we live, it really is amazing to see all the work that has happened in just three months.  We’ve also been encouraged by the positive feedback we have received regarding this idea of ministry here in Dakar."

Please pray with us for perseverance and favor in obtaining final legal documents and permits for the property. Pray for the final details and equipment needed to serve people at CuriosiTEA. Pray that CuriosiTEA will be a place where the name of Jesus is boldly proclaimed, and that people who visit come to know Christ as their Savior. 

These are only a few of the highlights and stories of what God did in and through the people and ministries of Avant worldwide. See more stories of God's great global impact, or explore our stories on Facebook or Instagram.
