Powerpack works in a variety of countries beyond the UK.
Four main countries we work in are: ARGENTINA | ITALY | THAILAND and MYANMAR | USA
Powerpack has been working in Argentina for many years. It all began with some personal trips to experience the revival happening there and from there God has opened many doors to help children in that nation encounter the Father in the same ways as the adults. It is has been a privilege to develop relationships with so many amazing Argentine friends, and to have the opportunity to cultivate a desire to see the revival culture and Powerpack culture blend together.

Powerpack In Argentina
We are currently working on translating some of our key resources into Spanish.
A Decade In The Fire
For the last ten years Heather and Powerpack have been transformed by the revival in Argentina. During this time there have been many Powerpack kids events, many leaders’ training sessions and Heather has spoken at many churches. The Powerpack team have built up strong relationships that bridge from the UK to Argentina. The majority of Powerpack involvement has been in Buenos Aires, La Plata and Mar de Plata with annual trips from the UK to work with the quickly growing team there.
Revival In Argentina
Argentina has experienced many powerful moves of God over the last 50 years or so. From the massive crusades held by Tommy Hicks in 1954, when it is reported that 6,000,000 people attended the meetings over 54 days and 600,000 became Christians, through the early 80’s to the present day through the ministry of Carlos Annacondia , and more recently God coming powerfully and reviving the church particularly through worship in churches like Rey de Reyes in Buenos Aires where Claudio Freidzon is the pastor and Iglesia del Puente in Quilmes which is pastored by Pedro Ibarra.

It has been exciting to work with the ‘Gesu Fonte di Aqua Viva’ network of churches both in their main base in Modena as well as some of their other churches in places such as Pesaro, Sienna and Taurisano. We have been involved in a variety of different types of ministry such as training children’s leaders, running children’s meetings, parents and family meetings.
Heather & Chris regularly visit to encourage churches and support ministries. The churches have picked up the Powerpack vision and run with it in their own way – they are like our Italian family. Many of the Powerpack songs and other resources have been translated into Italian.
THAILAND & MYANMAR
Jenny & Adrian Oliver co-ordinate Powerpack in Asia. Jenny has been involved with Powerpack since the beginning. Together with her family, she is actively involved in events and encouraging children in prayer and mission. Many revivals in the past have started with children and young people, and we believe that God is very much at work amongst children in these days. Over 200 leaders and children attended the Powerpack Children’s Ministry Conferences – “More” and “Your Kingdom Come” (raising up a Josiah generation) – this was a further opportunity to learn and experience how children can know the reality of God’s presence and the power of His Holy Spirit at work in and through their lives.

Hope for Myanmar
For the last few years Jenny Oliver, Powerpack Asia, has been partnering with a couple in Burma (Myanmar) who wish to see their children blessed. This has involved helping to provide equipment to establish self sustaining businesses, like breeding ducks and a mushroom farm alongside the development of key practical skills involving sewing and bed cover making. Powerpack and the children in Powerpack’s meetings have given financially, together with other donors, to make these projects possible.
Jenny, Heather and Mirjam (who has worked a lot with Jenny in Chiang Mai) were able to visit in January 2012 and lead a 2 day training session for children’s leaders as well as meetings for children.

Thailand & Myanmar 2015
Heather, Nick and Paul (from Argentina) are joining the Oliver family in Chiang Mai in January. This will involve training to Burma (Myanmar) along with some time working with children’s leaders in Chiang Mai.
Powerpack has been involved in ministry in the USA since 1996. This has been mainly focused on the Reno/Tahoe/Sacramento area (Nevada & California) where we have led vacation Bible School programmes, training sessions for children’s leaders and other types of children’s meetings. Heather in particular has strong links with two churches in the area – The River Christian Church in Reno and Lake Tahoe Christian Fellowship in South Lake Tahoe. During recent years Heather has built a very strong connection with Bethel Church in Redding. She has spoken at the ‘Pastoring Children in Revival’ conference and regularly at the Children’s Leaders School which is held in the autumn each year. She has also led training sessions for children’s leaders as well the children’s programme on a number of occasions at Bethel Church. As a ministry we have joined Global Legacy – a network of people across the world. Nick has recently completed the leadership development course from Bethel. Many of the Powerpack resources are available to order in the States.
