March 2020 Updates
Empowered Women, Empower Women!
– Nebaj, Guatemala –
In 2014, MVC committed to building a hospital to provide quality healthcare to this remote region of Guatemala. In 2019, we sent almost 75 people to serve in Nebaj and this included individuals who assisted with the women’s sewing ministry. Thanks to Gretchen VanArragon who has been going back every year with different teams to teach sewing to more women. The legacy continues as more and more women learn this important skill through one another!
Women are taught the essentials of how to sew, to how to make a quilt, pajamas and teddy bears for their children! Speaking of children – some started to learn how to sew as well! You can see in the picture above a group of women in February who are part of the Beginners Class – and look what they made! Beautiful quilts for their families.
- Water Promises Hope!
– Nairobi, Kenya –
We are praying that 2020 will be a year for water! MVC is determined on having a well drilled in Niarobi, Kenya very soon but more funds are needed before this can be done.
The plan is simple: irrigate the five hectares of land that Vision Ministries Kenya (VMK) owns to grow crops that can provide income needed for the ministry. Through
agriculture and bottling, the hope is to bring income to better to support the
ministry that brings together and networks 50+ churches.
MVC believes that ministries in other countries need to create the means to be
less dependent on outside support. Together we can continue to work side by side and along with our ministry partners to create opportunities for long term sustainability.
Together we can create SUSTAINABILITY and give HOPE by giving the gift of water!
- A New Church as a Result of Prison Ministry!
Rodolfo is our Missionary Rep from Iquitos, Peru and aside from getting Hogar Genesis (Children’s Home) up and running, he visits the local Men’s and Women’s Prison. Visiting once a month, Rodolfo ministers to and loves on the individuals who are stuck behind bars. When teams visit Iquitos, they have the opportunity to visit the local prisons as well. Teams are able to have fellowship, sharing of testimonies and get to know the inmates.
Rodolfo has shared a story of how God’s love is truly unconditional. No matter what you have gone through, what you have done or where you have been – God loves you. Two men by the name of Charles and Luis served time in Iquitos’ local prison but that does not hinder them from seeing God’s goodness.
“God meets you where ever you are – even in prison!” – Rodolfo

Inside, are stories of present needs, the impact and stories of changed lives through the various projects. We hope that you will also feel a measure of inexpressible joy in your heart.
