The professional, loving, and serving staff of MRN has not only guided and catalyzed our ministry, but has shaped our lives both spiritually and professionally. They prepared us for our international mission through mentoring, advising, praying, and asking the right questions that we needed to answer before we launched to our mission field. They have also worked - and continue working - with our sending church and family to provide missionary care support and services so that we could be best cared for as we are away from our country and family. MRN's own experience on the mission field enables them to provide excellent professional support to missionaries and their sending communities, but they are also friends and family to us as we co-labor for Christ. Without MRN, we could not possibly be as effective and as prepared for the mission that God has called us to do.
Over the years, MRN has been a tremendous support to our family and our work, training us and caring for us along the way! Prayerful, wise, experienced, and motivated by God's heart for the nations.
The Missionary Care Workshop conducted by MRN helped me realize that being a missionary is every Christian’s responsibility. You don't have to go to another country for mission work. It provided me awareness of how to support missionaries. The real-life stories from those who have been on the field were impactful.
MRN was very helpful in preparing our young missionary couple for their departure. I was impressed with their expertise. It was very helpful to equip all of the participants in the sessions they led including our missionary couple, their families, and our mission team members. MRN has been a great partner with the Hillcrest church Missions Team.
By attending the IMPRINT, I discovered tangible tools and ideas in how to better share my faith with those around me. I left having a much clearer sense of how to be more intentional throughout my daily routines and that going out and sharing the Gospel doesn't have to be this big, overwhelming task that we sometimes make it to be.
We left the IMPRINT hungry to see movement in the places God calls us to be. Imprint led us on a journey of discovery and equipped us to fulfill the call to make disciples in all nations.
By going through IMPRINT training and assessment, I have grown as a disciple of Christ and have worked through what I believe and why, what my role is in expanding God's Kingdom, and how that fits into the larger story that God has been writing since creation. I am learning what it means to join in a greater story that is saturated with prayer, how we can identify inside leaders and people of peace in our communities, how to develop leaders when we find them, how that can lead to rapid multiplication of disciples, and how the actions we take today can lead to wholistic cultural and societal transformation.
MRN has been an immense blessing and a direct answer to prayer. They have mentored, guided, and facilitated growth in our faith and our understanding of our role as disciple makers in our host country. Their missionary care team does an excellent job at educating and preparing churches and families for how to effectively care for their missionaries abroad as well as Stateside. We are grateful to God for our partnership with MRN and the blessings that have and will continue to come because of it!
