Transformation in Villa Margarita

This is my third time in Bolivia. If you would have told me 10 years ago that I would spend my vacation time each year to visit people in need and work with the less fortunate, I'm not sure I would have believed you. But God placed Bolivia on my heart from the very first trip I made, one of the ways He did that was  through working with the women of the community.



I have been blessed to witness the progress made in the village of Villa Margarita.  My first trip, God blessed me with the opportunity to teach the women community leaders about Nutrition. God used that experience to change my heart for those in poverty and show me where there was poverty in my life as well. FH was just starting in the community and the Cascada group of women leaders were few and needed education as basic as understanding the food groups.

Three years later, my heart filled with love, grace and humility as I witnessed the same community with many more members of the Cascada group open their Nutrition Center. Though the building was awesome, it was the pride each women had in their work. The ownership, responsibility and confidence each woman had filled my heart. The women have learned and are bringing the good information to others. All the while, living and learning biblical principles. Their children are learning from their mothers and will be leaders one day too! 

I praise God that He brought me here to be a part of the opening of the nutrition center. It will be a day that will forever remain in my heart.

Announcements:

We are excited to announce that we will have an in-person worship service outside at 8:30am in the MCC parking lot! We can’t wait to see you! In addition, our Sunday live-stream (on Facebook and Instagram) will move to 10:00am for the foreseeable future for those who are not be able to join us.

We’ve chosen for our service to happen outdoors as there are still a number of requirements and protocol for indoor gatherings. So, we are not inviting you to join us indoors at this time. Instead, come for our outdoor gathering, or continue to join us online later from home.

Please read the Guidelines for Gathering to Worship Together at MCC in its entirety so that you know what to expect when you come to our outdoor service. This will help you and those around you navigate a very new situation, hopefully in a way that is as seamless as possible.  We believe that our unity will be expressed and strengthened as we serve one another in Christ this week so join us in extending grace to each other, amid our differing perspectives, and different views about how to live in this time.

“... submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.”

Eph. 5:21

“Outdo one another in showing honor.”

Rom. 12:10

“By this all men will know that you are My disciples,

if you have love for one another.”

Jn. 13:35

Please know that we are making every effort for this gathering to be in full compliance with the protocols given by authorities. No single plan for our meeting will ever be the perfect solution in any one person’s eyes.  We will all be making compromises.  But as we defer to these guidelines set up by our elders and leadership, we will be serving our fellow believers, honoring Christ as best we can, and providing for a beautiful expression of worship to happen together.

Please stay home if any of the following apply to you:

  • You are immunocompromised.
  • You are feeling ill (running a fever, coughing, or showing other signs of sickness)

Please don’t put yourself or others at risk.  Thank you for staying home and staying safe, because we love you!


As a reminder, MCC Elders and Leaders will be sharing an MCC Morning Devotions every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings at 9:00am on Facebook. We look forward to your feedback, ideas, and thoughts on these morning devotions!
