Kingdom Greetings to each of you. As we move forward with our current ministry objectives for 2021, many wonderful things has been accomplished with the help of God and your support. During the year the World Outreach Worship Center (W.O.W.) continues to grow. With the CORONAVIRUS and the spread of COVID-19 in 2020 through 2021, outreach and evangelism were met with some challenges. Yet MRM International were still able to reach the masses with an MRM Outreach packet with valuable information were given across the community pertaining to salvation, how to unite with the ministry as well as ways for the community to continue to be blessed through the ministry .
MRM continued to give out items from the lending closet to several needy families. Through partners and contributors across the United States MRM was once again able to provide coats, gloves, underclothes and many other needed items during the winter season to local residents for their children.
MRM provided over 15 Families with gift cards for Thanksgiving meals and more than 10 families with Christmas food boxes. The Food pantry continues to give out Food boxes to the community once a month.
MRM is the site location for NCTS@Cumberland. A satellite seminary of the North Carolina Theological Seminary headquartered in Clinton, NC under the leadership of the Founder/President Dr. Varnie N. Fullwood. NCTS@Cumberlnd graduate 14 students in 2020 as well as 16 graduates in 2021.
The foreign mission of MRM continues to support its 35 churches in Liberia West Africa and have gain a new partner in Malawi South Africa. The Ebenezer Baptist Church. Plans are scheduled to hold a conference in South Africa with the Ambassadors and MRM Mission Team from the United States as well as the MRM Ambassador and Team from West Africa in a combined conference. All depending on the status of COVID cases abroad and CDC recommendations.
MRM shipped four separate shipments of supplies to both West Africa and South Africa. The ministry continues to support the Grace Baptist quarterly feeding program for the blind, widows and elderly, this program also gives out hygiene items. MRM in 2021 sponsored over 18 orphan children enrolled in the Eliza Davis Baptist Memorial school in Sinoe County Liberia.
The MRM Bible Institute in Sinoe County, Liberia is still teaching and training pastor, equipping them for the planting and growing church ministry. The institute focus on training pastors in areas such as evangelism, church planting, growing church finances, discipleship and growing ministry.
Through the grace of God and sponsors MRM was able to purchase a vehicle for the local ministry team in Liberia for mission, outreach and for transporting shipments sent in country from the US from Liberia to Sinoe county and to the affiliated churches.
MRM has launched its virtual global teaching workshops with facilitators from the MRM Educational Team connecting virtually with the ministry teams in Africa. The focus is to assist in the training efforts to broaden the global impact of reaching the masses with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
None of this could have been made possible without the support of our gracious contributors. Your contributions large or small has made the difference. The Board of Directors, our Vice President Beverly Rowden and I are grateful to God for all of our partners and contributor.
