In 2009 MCC joined Food for the Hungry (FH) 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.
"You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
The C2C initiative pairs churches and communities to end all aspects of spiritual and physical hunger. Our goal is to build relationships which result in “mutual transformation;” impacting both the church and the community.
We partner 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 Casa. FH graduated this community and in March 2015 MCC began working with Villa Margarita.
MCC is continually exploring new opportunities for transformation in Bolivia including the establishment of a sustainable, profit business (through our Business as Mission program); creating jobs and serving as a platform for the gospel.
