Kingdom Greetings to each of you. MRM International had a successful 2023 Mission Trip to Malawi South Africa. The team visited several villages as well as the village hit hardest by Cyclone Freddy earlier this year. We were able through the grace of God and generous contributions to meet several needs across the region. From paying the balance on land for the building of a new church due to the original church being destroyed to funding the relocation of a local pastor who lost his home, to sowing a generous seed into a family that lost their home to distributing large bags of food to a multitude of community residents in the hard-hit village just to name a few.
During one of our Crusade/Evangelist services, during the call to discipleship 178 people came and gave their life to Jesus Christ. What a blessing for the body of Christ. At the close out worship service on our last day in country, we dedicated 3 baby’s to Christ.
As we move forward with our current ministry objectives for 2023, many wonderful things have been accomplished with the help of God and your support. During the year the World Outreach Worship Center (W.O.W.) continued to grow. There continue to be some outreach and evangelism challenges post-COVID-19. Yet MRM International has been able to reach the masses with an MRM Outreach packet with valuable information that is being 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. The MRM feeding program continues to bless many individuals and families each month. See the MRM Ministry schedule for days of Food pick up as well as gleaning from the MRM Lending closet.
MRM continues to give out items from the lending closet to several needy families. Through partners and contributors across the United States MRM is once again able to provide coats, gloves, underclothes, and many other needed items during the winter season to local residents for their children.
In 2022 MRM partnered with Fayetteville State University in providing care packets to their student center lending store. This partnership is being extended by having future meetings with the student body upon their return for the new semester in August.
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.We are currently taking applications for the 2023-2024 classes. For more information click on the NCTS tab on the menu bar at the of the page.
The foreign mission of MRM continues to support it’s now more than 35 churches in Liberia West Africa with new churches in Monrovia under the leadership of Ambassador Noah Jasay Senior Pastor of Grace Baptist Church, as well as growing to 22 churches planted in Malawi Africa under the leadership of Ambassador Patrick Macendesa Senior Pastor of the Ebenezer Baptist Church.
MRM shipped several boxes of supplies to both West Africa and Malawi so far in 2023 with scheduled shipments remaining. MRM is looking to sponsor more students and orphan children that will be 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 pastors, 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. We look forward to establishing an MRM Bible Institute in South Africa in the Malawi region in the near future.
There is still a need to purchase communion trays for the churches in Liberia and Malawi. Please sow into this project. The cost is approximately $60 for each communion tray.
We are encouraged because of God’s grace and look forward to a more blessed and productive ministry in the year ahead. If you would like to be a part of the MRM International team. Contact us to see where your gift can be best utilized.
Peace & Blessings
