MISSIONS WE SUPPORT at MBC
MARY LOU WUNKER
Mary Lou is our Missions Team Leader as well as being very involved in One Mission Society and World Vision and Samariton's Purse
MBC'S WORLD VISION HAITI
Mary Lou has a heart for Haiti and so do we.
MBC supports two children in Morne Pelee, Haiti, through World Vision. The community of Morne Pelee is home to more than 13,000 people, more than 40 per cent of whom are under 18. Haiti is the most underdeveloped country in the Western Hemisphere. Like many rural communities, Morne Pelee has poor access to basic social services such as a safe drinking water, electricity, sanitation, recreation centers or vocational schools. The population depends mainly on agriculture, livestock and informal work, and most families are not able to meet their basic needs. Our sponsorship enables Loudjina and Evenaud to attend school, as well as supporting various community programs.
Dave and Marg Hinds
Dave and Marg Hinds have worked actively over the years, through YWAM as Youth With a Mission, doing discipleship training in Kenya, Uganda and Guyana.
Dave and Marg are also a part of our MBC Worship Team
Shirley Hamilton is a missionary, the Founder and Director Emerita of DayStar Native Outreach (daystarnativeoutreach.com). Located on Manitoulin Island in upper Lake Huron, DayStar is headquartered on the Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory. Her work spreads to many other reserves in the Great Lakes Area, home of the Three Fires Confederacy, the tribes of the Odawa, Ojibwe and Potawatami tribes. Outreach is Shirley’s passion, working with the people, sharing the Good News of the gospel through evangelism, teaching and discipling. DayStar is known and well-accepted on many Native territories in the mid-north of Ontario. God is at work through this dynamic and pioneering ministry.
Len and Mary Reed
Len and Mary have served with TeachBeyond (www.teachbeyond.org) (formerly Janz Team Ministries) since 1997. Their calling and passion is to serve other missionaries and Christian workers who need a respite from their place of service, whether in Europe, Asia, Africa or South America. The facility for this service is called “Sanctuary” (www.reedsanctuary.org). They also are a part of the team that serves their TeachBeyond missionaries (almost 1000) through prayer, connecting and mentoring. Along with this they help in the administrative side to the TeachBeyond Global Centre in the UK. During this Covid season we have seen more and more on-line meetings and Sanctuary has been put on hold. However, the Lord continues to use our love for Him for serve even from afar.
Minden Community Food Centre
The Minden Community Food Centre (www.mindenfoodbank.org), formerly the Minden Food Bank, was established in 1993. Since then we have served our community by providing food, cooking classes, clothing, toys, books, medical equipment, school supplies and other household goods for those who are in need. It is also a hub in Haliburton County for food distribution to other area food banks.
Pregnancy Care & Family Support Centre
The Pregnancy Care and Family Support Center (www.haliburtonpregnancycentre.ca) is a Christian organization affiliated with Pregnancy Care Canada. Our Centre meets our clients’ needs by coming alongside them and offering parenting programs, pregnancy tests, options education for those facing an unexpected pregnancy, infant supplies, post-abortion support, newborn to size 6 clothing as well as sexual health and pregnancy education.
