C2C Network, Idaho
Chris and Dianne are being deployed to the U.S.A. to come alongside our MB brothers and sisters as they work to see multiplication become a reality. To do all of this, though, they need a yield of Kingdom workers. They need to help churches identify and raise up potential church planters and leaders. They need partnerships with existing churches to further Kingdom collaboration and advancement. They need followers of Jesus, His body, the Church to partner with and support them. More than anything, though, they need us to stand alongside of them in prayer as they begin this journey and mission. Email Chris & Dianne.
Camp in a Box, Latvia
Steve & Natalija have been serving churches in Latvia since 2000 and work under the umbrella of Greater Europe Mission, www.gemission.org. Camp in a box provides churches the opportunity to have a mobile camp set up in their area so that they can use this tool to reach their community and further their disciple making efforts. The vision is for churches in Latvia, Belarus, the Ukraine and other Eastern Europe countries to work together in establishing programs that include this unique tool. Steve & Natalija have 3 boys … Samuel, Simon and Joshua. Email Steve and Natalija.

Lifestyle Ministries International, Asia
Lifestyle Ministries International, also known as LMI, is a Canadian non-profit affiliated with Partners in Development Worldwide (PIDW). LMI was founded with the express intent of going into Asia and through networking with likeminded individuals and organizations, forming partnerships that will benefit the country from within, in the ultimate hope that they learn about the love of Christ. With all the teams they have in Asia doing different areas of ministry (youth, family, law, education), they have seen many people, of all different groups, come to Christ.
1. Summer is a busy time with camps and conferences. Prayer for favor with local authorities
2. Prayer for Miller who is going back to Asia, for safety, health and protection

Youth Unlimited: Dennis Hemminger & Maureen Floris
In 2002, the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows area Youth Unlimited was started as a result of Youth Pastors and leaders realizing that they were doing good things within their buildings, but there wasn’t really any connections with their community and neighbours!
Thus Youth Unlimited began with a Skateboard Club in a local church parking lot and a High School lunch club. Currently we are connected to groups at all 6 High Schools, with our staff working in 3, assisting the schools as requested. Additionally we run a young adult leadership course and a community bicycle club and are part of a Rwanda missions exchange program called Elevation Project. One morning a week our team serves hot pancakes, sausages, and fruit to youth at our breakfast club at Garibaldi High School.
The vision is to be a vehicle through which the Church can tangibly connect with our neighbours, thus serving the youth in our communities of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. This work is outside the walls of any one church, but solely dependent on partnerships with individuals and the greater church in these communities.
Not to us, O LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness. Psalm 115:1 (Okanagan Gleaners mission verse)
For the past several years a group of MRCC people have spent a week cutting, chopping, and cleaning at the Okanagan Gleaners. The OK Gleaners is located in Oliver, BC and is situated on a rural property with a large fruit and vegetable drying operation.
The food product is then made into a dry soup mix that feeds the hungry around the world. 6.5 million servings of soup were distributed around the world in 2012. Please check out the OK Gleaners website.
Run by local volunteers, OK Gleaners welcomes groups like ours that commit to work a week at a time. Camping and kitchen facilities are available on site and families are welcome! If you would like more information, or to join us in July contact the office.
