This is our last day in Sucre. During our time here we've had the opportunity to reflect on experiences and seeing God work all week! The time spent with FH, the children and the families has truly been a blessing to each of us.
We have learned so much about others and so much about ourselves. We are blessed to come to Sucre and encourage the families and children to accept God in their lives and to learn new skills to end the cycle of poverty.
We have prayed with those who are vulnerable. We have strengthened existing relationships and developed new ones.
The FH staff has had such an important impact on the lives here and I have seen such progress from 2 years ago. FH has made a positive impact on Villa Margarita. We have been blessed to see examples of positive transformation within the community.
To learn more about this amazing ministry and opportunities for you to be a part of it, come to MCC's Sunday service, April 9th for a mission trip wrap-up! Mission team members will talk about their experiences, show pictures of the trip and discuss how you can get involved!

Starting Thursday, January 17th, Sara Ghormley and Elizabeth Allan will lead discussions as we prayerfully work through Ed Welch's book, "Shame Interrupted". We begin at 6:30 and end at 8, and will meet for 16 weeks. Cost is $16 per person, but scholarships are available. Please contact Elizabeth and let her know so she can order a book for you.
Would you like to learn how to respond to conflict Biblically? Pastor Frank Malizzo, Elizabeth Allan and Spencer Brown are hosting a Peacemaking as Evangelism Workshop at MCC on January 25th-26th. The class will highlight Biblical tools that can be used for work, in the community, in the home and as a tool for evangelism. “Conflict presents unique opportunities to serve other people, we can demonstrate the love of Christ and give witness to the gospel even to people who are attacking us.” Ken Sande.
