“With God all things are possible” = Mission: Possible!
Mission:Possible serves to Reach Out with Helping Hands to enlarge our territory as the Living Tree in our Community, in the Valley, in our Native Land, and throughout the World.
Our Mission Team currently offers monthly support to four global ministries:
|MCC’s API seeks to cultivate and nourish relationships with people of Asian/Pacific Islands descent: building vibrant, liberating, spiritual communities that are supportive of gender and sexual minorities.|
While most LGBT people enjoy relative freedom in North America, Europe, and Australia/New Zealand, queer people literally have to live in fear that their lives would be in danger just by stepping outside the door. Islamic Fundamentalists frequently send “enforcers” to keep sexual minorities in the closet, or worst yet, “eliminate” them completely. It is not uncommon for a lesbian to be raped by the enforcers or for a gay man to be beaten and tortured. Consequently, gay men and lesbian women cannot assemble, even for worhsip, without being in fear for their lives. In spite of this fact, Rev. Elder Ken Martin and the API have been able to meet with a group of more than 100 LGBT Christians in Pakistan. There is a continuing momentum and desire to see a church in Pakistan and, in addition, MCC is partnering up with CARE Pakistan to offer training for women to become self-sufficient in a safe environment.
