MRC's ministries during 2016
Debriefs for Missionaries - During 2016 we've been involved in 3 group debriefs and 3 individual debriefs, serving a total of about 25 missionaries. We praise the Lord for the privilege of being involved with these four and a half day retreats where He always shows up and meets each person in wonderful ways. It's very encouraging and energizing for us (Linn and John) to be a part of this team.
Watch a video about what a debrief is and is not! Go to our websitewww.mrcofnc.org, then to the tab "what we do", then to the drop-down "debriefing" and click on the video, MRC debriefing (1:36 min.). We charge a fee for the personal debriefs here in the Raleigh area, but that only covers our expenses of transportation, accommodations, etc. And when we travel to north Georgia for a debrief retreat (349 miles one way), it always costs MRC money at least for travel and often some accommodations as well. We trust the Lord to continue meeting the financial needs of these debriefs.
Cars for Missionaries - MRC owns three vehicles. During this year,THIRTEEN FAMILIES used these vehicles. This is by far the most frequent request we receive. We charge a fee for the use of our cars, but during this year, MRC paid out $1,775 more in maintenance and repairs on the cars than what we received in fees, mainly because of significant repairs required by two of the cars.
Partnering with MRC - Thank you for partnering with us through your prayers and finances. As we all begin thinking about end-of-year giving, we ask you to consider MRC. WE ARE TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON GIFTS to fund these significant ministries.
It is an honor and privilege to serve these ones who have "left father and mother, sisters and brothers," and their home countries to serve the King
Serving those who serve,
John and Linn
