MDE September Newsletter

God at work in Central Asia

Our MDE member writes: "On Saturday, I hosted six young men from our orphan mentor program that had recently taken part in youth camp. The amazing part was that at camp all of them had made decisions for Christ! They were very open to talking about it both one-on-one and in the group.

During their time in my apartment, I was in the kitchen preparing food and when I came out, I saw two of the young men reading page after page of the Good Book they found in my living room. Such spiritual hunger!

They have since returned to their home not able to take the Good Book with them. Some of them have one year before graduation, others have two more years to go. Only one from this group graduated this year."
  • Please pray for these young men who made decisions. Because they are currently housed in a state facility, they are not allowed to have a copy of the Good Book. We all will need wisdom and creativity in their development.
  • There are more orphanages open to us mentoring their orphans. We seek to partner in this work with other like-minded organizations. Pray for wisdom and understanding of how to work together to grow this strategic opportunity.                    
  • We are still looking for regular funding for our Foster Parent Club and its coordinator. Please pray for the Lord to supply this need. Click here to donate.

Reading the Good Book

Through our community development organization, we have been able to provide life-skills seminars and both recreational and educational activities for orphans during summer and winter school breaks. 

Sponsor MDE: 2016 Marathon

Another year, another race. Specifically, a half marathon in Grand Rapids, MI. We would love to have you support our fearless leader, Mark Canada, as he runs 13.1 miles on October 23rd.

Prayer is appreciated, but we are hoping for sponsors. Your donation will be used to serve believers who are working in the marketplaces of unreached communities, making disciples and planting churches around the world.

Mark's goal is to raise over $3,000. Cheer him on by sponsoring him here.
