As November and the season of Thanksgiving begin, we want to say thank you for your support throughout the year. This month's edition of The Mustard Seed magazine brings you some special stories from around the world.


Though we are living in times of uncertainty, we can still rest in our Father and God, the One who is our Provider. The article The Wealth Behind Giving by Matt Mattos, the executive director of WNI, affirms that we can rest in God and let the Holy Spirit align our vision with His.


We've almost reached the end of the year! We want to invite you to pause and take note of the things you are thankful for. As you read in My Personal Experience with Thankfulness in Times of Crisis by Marina Sordi Bryant, be inspired and reflect on how an attitude of gratefulness has impacted you this year!


World Nations International is constantly engaged in fighting hunger and poverty through sustainable agriculture and community development projects in vulnerable communities worldwide. Read about one of these amazing projects that will start very soon in Mozambique in the article A Dream Called Mphatso by Luiz Sinzker.


Can you imagine what it would be like for a young couple and their two-year-old child to leave everything behind to fulfill God's call for their lives? In the piece Giving Up to Grow Up, you can read a brief and powerful story of one family's faith and obedience to serve in a country in Asia through WNI.


As the lockdown in Brazil continues, children living in slum areas still don’t have access to educational, recreational, or social activities. Read Bags of Hope by Leandro Silva, who is working with his team in Northeast Brazil to reach out to these kids in a very creative way. You too can be part of this important work.


Also in this edition, we want to give you a glimpse into the life of one of our Indonesian seminary students. You can read about her time at the Mission Training Center and Theological Seminary in Indonesia in the article Meet our Students.


Finally, we want to thank you for partnering with us in what God is doing around the world!


Sincerely,


The World Nations International team
