The Rock, a World Outreach Center
Dr. Berin here, missionary at large from the Rock to many nations around the world. Many years ago there was a small Bible study group in Minneapolis that gathered weekly, as time progressed, they began taking an offering for world missions. With the funds they raised, they began supporting work among the “garbage kids” in the Philippines. These kids literally live on the edges of a garbage dump in Manila, and their daily food comes from the trucks that deliver garbage each day to the site. The missionary working in that area was providing food, clothing, shelter, and education for these children.
Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. — Mark 16:18
Our Mexico Missions team from our youth and young adults ministries are back with new life changing experiences of what God did in them and through them.
They were able to dedicate 5 full days of serving and loving the people of Ensenada, making the name of Jesus known!
There’s a lot things that take place in the streets of our city; drive-by shootings, violence, drugs, gangs, homelessness….we are too familiar with it all.
But there’s a wind of change blowing through our streets, and I don’t know about you, but I want to be a part of it.
“I had no idea this was happening every week in the streets!” We’re the words of the Young Adult next to me with her jaw dropped last Saturday. Our Young Adults Ministry “Shift” decided to join The Rock Churches weekly outreach called “Rock in the Streets”. They go to locations all over the city, last week we arrived in an area near 21st street. As soon as we arrived we began unloading and within minutes we transformed this empty space in front of the complex into what felt like a block party! We had music bumping, we were handing out snow cones and popcorn, we helped set up a food distribution area where they could receive bags of groceries, a clothing center where they could pick out nice clean clothes, and areas for adults, teens, and children to hear an encouraging message about Jesus.
“…And then He told them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.’” Mark 16:15
A group of twenty-one went out for nine days into Peru to be the hands and feet, and to demonstrate to the people the love Jesus has for them. Those nine short days were jam-packed with work for the Kingdom!
