Our MEM team in Bolivia is asking for financial help with the medical expenses for a family whose baby had severe health issues when it was born. Extended family, the Villa Nueva Church and other friends have stepped in to help, but about $7,000 in expenses still remain unpaid, and this poor family has no means to cover those costs. If you would like to help you can send a cheque made out to EMMC and marked Bolivia Relief Fund to the EMMC office, or click on “Give, Gather, Go” and select your preferred way to donate to the Bolivia Relief Fund. For more information on this situation please contact EMMC Missions Facilitator Abe Giesbrecht at 204-324-3019. Thank-you for your help.

"You are recording these sessions right?", "All these workshops are great, but I can't make it to each one, are they going to be available?". Many of you asked, and we made sure we could deliver. The event was very well attended. Our main speaker Pastor Mark Clark gave us powerful messages from God's word. Pastor Kenny Warkentin shared openly and honestly with us about how to love the broken people around us. Workshop presenters were well prepared and engaging on a variety of topics, giving our people resources and inspiration. We also had the opportunity to honor our past with a Sold Out Celebration Dinner. We celebrated our 80 year history, and some of the people who were instrumental in EMMC ministry.
Videos of the main sessions, workshops, and church responses are on the website follow this LINK
