International MFI Update on Vision Giving

Thank you to the almost 100 churches and leaders who joined together this last October to pledge towards the vision fund for work around the world. Because of these pledges $110,000 was committed to serving leaders and churches in other parts of the world.  While we reach out and bless many pastors and leaders throughout the world, our goal is for our International Networks and Affiliates to become either partly or fully self-supporting so that we can continue to expand our influence into other nations around the world. We are happy to be able to report on some of the following areas of the world where that has been achieved.

Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe is emerging as a really solid MFI Affiliate, largely due to the way we birthed this Affiliate the last 2 1/2 years using the personnel from our MFI ALT, leadership already on the ground in the locale, and local MFI churches adopting a country where we are trying to establish an Affiliate. Ken Haskins is a native born Zimbabwean going back to when Zimbabwe was called Rhodesia. Ken already had many connections to pastors in MFI so a relationship was already established.

Two of those relationships were with Doug Sherman and Jeff Ecklund who had already been ministering in Zimbabwe before we attempted to start an MFI Affiliate. Using Ken Haskin's influence already in the country and Doug and Jeff willing to take on this project, we have taken pastors in Zimbabwe from different streams through a three year training track in a very short period of time. In the last 2 1/2 years, Doug has been over there three times and Jeff twice in order to get these pastors through these tracks.

Thank you to Grace Harvest Church and House of the Lord for sending your teams and serving to build MFI Zimbabwe.

Nigeria

Last month, Pastor Casmir Ihegworo and his team hosted the Nigerian MFI Conference in Owerri, Nigeria. Pastors Steve Stells and Mike Hennigan traveled to Nigeria to take part in and speak at the conference. The theme of the conference was CONNECTED in keeping with the 2015 A2 Conference in North America.

The conference was a powerful, encouraging and challenging time for the 200 pastors who came together. These pastors endure great hardships, and their resolve to build the Kingdom of God is an inspiration to all of us.

Pastor Casmir wishes to express his gratitude to all of MFI for your generosity in sowing resources into the country of Nigeria and he is looking forward to equipping many more pastors and leaders in the years ahead. Thank you!

Our Purpose

The purpose of the annual vision offering is to provide practical assistance to church leaders in many parts of the world. This includes provision of ministry resources, financial and ministry assistance for Affiliate and Network conferences, partial scholarships for international leaders to the Annual MFI conference, international travel assistance for apostolic leaders, and the staffing of an international director. While our monthly dues establish a budget which provides staff for the entire network, a web-site with resources and communication tools, regional leadership conferences throughout North America and facilitates an international conference that fosters a nearly three-decade history of relationships, it does not allow for significant influence in other nations.

Our churches rally together in October to pledge and contribute towards the strategic influence and expansion of MFI beyond North America. We are privileged to be a part of a network of churches that are having Kingdom impact throughout the world in over 45 countries. The report above is just a small sampling of what is being accomplished through the MFI Vision fund.

If you or your church would like to join with us in the 2016 vision giving opportunity, you can still partner with the many other churches and leaders who are already involved. Simply contact the MFI office and let a team member know that you’d like to make a difference too!
