June 2019 Updates
We Want YOU To Be More Involved!
MVC is excited to announce that we are changing our donor software! Please be patient with us as we are currently in the transition of doing so.
What’s great about our new platform KINDFUL?
You can now create your own profile and manage them! In other words, you will have access to a real-time database that tracks all your donations. This allows for more engagement as we now have the capacity to create crowdfunding pages. This will be extremely helpful for teams and individuals who go to serve! Another great thing is that this platform allows us to send e-receipts, saving administrative costs and of course, the planet!
Please contact the office if you have any questions about using Kindful.
An Update From the Blackburns in Puerto Maldonado, Peru!
“Our home exists to share the love and knowledge of Christ with all those that enter, we are blessed that God allows us to care for those He entrusts to us. Ultimately we want these children to be reunited with their families or adoptive families.” Click HERE to view their most recent newsletter!
We are hoping to open Tat’s Place very soon as the Blackburns have been working hard on making this dream come to life! Below are some pictures of what Tat’s Place will look like:
“With love, and a sincere sense of gratitude for your partnership in the gospel, hugs and love from Peru!”

Thank You For Supporting Our Pastors!
We would like to Thank You, our wonderful donors, as we were able to provide Pastors in Africa and the Caribbean with food. Please continue to pray for those who have been called to serve but lack in finances due to educational and poverty issues. As several pastors live on less than $8 USD a month, it is the children of the pastoral couple who suffer the most.
If you would like to help ease the financial stress for Pastors so that they can focus on their ministries and communities:

Want to Be Part of the Legacy of Hope for Kenya?
We are currently in the process for a plan regarding the maintenance; future agricultural initiatives; and local commitment for a well! We are presently targeting a Maasai Community as their closest access to water is a 45 minute walk. With that said, there are incredibly unhealthy levels of natural fluoride in most water sources in Kenya which require additional costs. The good news is that the community has raised $1,000 USD for a well! The estimated cost for the well is $20,000 USD.
Since we are SO passionate about starting this well project in Kenya, we are giving a FREE Hardcover copy of David L. Night’s book ‘Downstream from Eden: The Amazing Gift of Water for a Thirsty World’. As a profound, reflective and interesting writer, Night celebrates water in a less-than-perfect world. This book is said to add a unique voice to the discussion of water with insights from the Bible, science, history and literature on issues of social justice, the environment and personal spirituality.
The first 28 people who donate $250 or more will receive a FREE copy of this book!
