In 2009 MCC joined Food for the Hungry as a Community to Community (C2C) partner in Sucre, Bolivia. We send mission teams annually and are currently working with our second Sucre "community" in Villa Margarita.
The C2C initiative pairs churches and communities working together to end all aspects of spiritual and physical hunger. The goal is to build relationships which result in “mutual transformation;” transforming both the church and the community to experience God's intention in all aspects of our lives.
MCC participates with Food for the Hungry by sponsoring children in the community, funding specific projects, and sending short-term teams to Bolivia. Our first community partner was in Horno Ckasa. FH graduated this community and in March 2015 MCC began working with Villa Margarita.
MCC is actively exploring other opportunities for transformation in Bolivia including the establishment of a sustainable, profit business (A Business as Mission or BAM business); creating jobs and serving as a platform for the gospel.
- Pray for local FH workers in Bolivia, short-term mission teams, and the children our church members sponsor.
- Sponsor a child living in Villa Margarita. Sponsorships are approximately $37/month.
- Participate in a short-term mission trip. Trips are 8-10 days long and occur in the late spring. Trips cost approximately $3,000 per perso, which includes airfare, hotel, daily transportation, and food.
