involved in a global partnership is an exciting aspect of
ministry for MPPC, and participating on a short-term team
truly captures the joy and impact of that partnership for
our members. Living in a new culture, learning about our global
partnerships, and sharing in hands-on work and ministry with
an MPPC team changes lives for those who participate. Recently
MPPC has begun a relationship through Christ for the City
with CECRISDEFA, a Christian orphanage and school in Nicaragua.
This international fellowship has grown through financial
support and the involvement of short-term teams.
year our hope as a team is to continue building up this partnership
through serving the school of CECRISDEFA and the surrounding
community with willing hands and warm servants' hearts.
the day we will be doing construction on the school's laundry
facilities and classrooms. We will also dedicate much of our
time to the children of the school by showing them Christ's
love through games, crafts and Bible story skits.
the evenings we will spend time in the community, attend an
evening church service and be together as a team. Since we
will be staying in two of the school dormitories, our involvement
with CECRISDEFA will be a full-time experience.
hope is that God will open our eyes to a world very different
from our own and teach us more about relying on Him for our
every need. Our prayer is that we will be used by God to continue
the work that has already been started at CECRISDEFA and will
return changed-stronger in faith and wiser in our knowledge
