Building a Bridge
How do you build a bridge? One piece of steel at a time. How do you build relationship and community? That takes time too, but MCC's Shine volunteers are doing just that by being present and showing God's love to students and teachers every time they show up! Click here to read how Shine volunteers are making a difference for A. Montoya staff and students every time they walk through the school doors! Contact Ashley Procter to get involved!
God Transforming Lives through Gideon’s International
We’ve all heard stories about how God’s word, God’s love and God’s compassion can literally transform lives. This year, 173 Gideon and Auxillary members from New Mexico and Arizona attended the Southwest Association Convention in Albuquerque and got to see and hear first-hand how two men, William Fay (at right) and Leroy Cannday, were changed by God's word!

Prayer for Outreach Ministries
Please pray for AMFA

AMFA brings clean water and the word of God
to indigenous communities in the jungles of Peru.
  • Pray for God's leading in the communities served by AMFA and that  hearts would be open to the Word of God.
  • Pray for our search for an indigenous pastor to support who would minister to unreached communities in Peru.
  • Pray for Jorge, and his safety, as he works in the jungle. He has been struggling with abdominal pain for quite some time;pray that he would have a diagnosis.
  • Pray for Angela as she ministers to her ailing parents, which keeps her from her Peruvian ministry, and home, for an extended period of time.
