Joining God’s bigger story of redeeming the world He loves.
I’m setting you up as a light for the nations so that my salvation becomes global!
-Isaiah 49:6b (MSG)
In 2015, God began to get our attention about becoming more intentional about global mission – to go beyond the periodic offerings or causes that came to our attention and commit to a long-term partnership. He led us to a region in Central Asia where Multiply (formerly MB Mission) is sowing seeds of God’s good news.
– A region where less than 1% of 76 million people identify themselves as followers of Jesus.
– A region filled with beauty, diversity, resilience and much potential.
Though we cannot mention our partners by name, this young family we support moved into the region a few years ago and are beginning to see the fruit of their prayers and discipleship – encouraging and training church leaders, building relationships with locals, blessing their neighbours and living out the gospel as a family.
FAQ – HOW CAN YOU PARTNER?
#1 – GIVE FINANCIALLY
Prayerfully consider donating an amount toward this ongoing project Multiply is catalyzing in Central Asia. We’re committed to a long-term partnership through prayer, relationship, and finances to encourage and witness this story of discipleship and mission unfold.
Our goal is to raise at least $6,000 by June 30, 2019
Anything beyond our goal funds will help our partners with practical on ministry needs.
#2 – HYGIENE KITS
Central Asia and the surrounding region are scattered with pockets of people displaced by war, terrorism or disaster. We’re asking every Westsider to donate at least 1 hygiene kit that MCC will distribute on the ground locally.
Each kit requires 1 adult-sized toothbrush, 1 large soap bar, 1 set of nail clippers, 1 hand towel.
Our goal is to collect at least 200 kits by June 30, 2019.
Bring them to Connections or KidsQuest at any of our gatherings in June or schedule a time to bring them to our office during the week
