Stories

God is transforming lives in mission and we would like to share these stories of transformation with you. Read about God's work in the stories from our missionaries and short term mission teams.

Do you remember this song? You may have learned it in Sunday school as I did. The church is not a building, the church is not a steeple, the church is not a resting place, the church is a people. I’ll never forget that phrase, my first picture as a young child of church. MB Mission also has a picture of church and believes that it really is the Hope of the world, the chosen vessel to share Jesus with those who have not yet heard the Good News. That’s why we have chosen to send our missionaries “to the ends of the earth” in church planting teams.

Then, suddenly, their youngest son, Silas became ill. Results from the blood work revealed all the signs of Type I diabetes.

Gai and Gaye-o first heard about the power of God when Gai was dying in the hospital with AIDS. A Christian nurse prayed for him and he immediately felt better. Because of his ill health, he had not been able to work for three years. His family often had no money for food and their poor squatter’s house left them cold and wet from the rain. But after Gai and Gaye-o gave their lives to Christ, Gai’s health improved so dramatically that he was released from the hospital. He prayed for work and God answered his prayer immediately. For the first time in three years he was able to provide for his family.

When I first met Wicki, last June, she was a distraught, frightened and angry woman! Loan sharks were calling on her everyday, threatening to hurt her if she did not pay back her debt. Deep down, our church felt as overwhelmed and afraid as she did. But, as Wicki, her son (age 12) and daughter (age 18) opened their hearts to Christ’s love and put their faith in Jesus, we began to slowly see God remove each “Goliath” she faced. A huge debt, an abusive, alcoholic husband and extreme poverty were just a few. All we could do was cry,”Have mercy on Wicki, God!” Since that time God has indeed shown us his great mercy.
