Nachrichten (News magazine)
Our 'Auftrag' magazine sheds light on topics related to mission and ecumenism, with plenty of illustrative and background material. This magazine is published by the German-language Mission Press Cooperative (Kooperation deutschsprachige Missionspresse), which includes Mission 21 and five other mission organisations in Germany and Austria. Each issue focuses on one particular topic or geographical area. The 40-page 'Auftrag' magazine is published four times each year, in German, as a printed edition for Mission 21's benefactors.
Latest issue: Auftrag 3/2020
The current issue focuses on Vanuatu, the country of the World Day of Prayer 2021, an island state that is still unspoiled thanks to its remoteness from Corona - but faces quite different challenges, such as climate change and destructive storms. The research for this focus area was completed just before the Corona-related border closure in Vanuatu and provides exciting insights.
Mission 21's international co-workers posted to partner churches and organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America report at regular intervals. Their circular letters (in German) afford personal insights into projects on the ground.
