This November we hosted a team come from Toronto, Canada! Christian Centre Church spent two days with us. They did an amazing job helping clear out three alleys in Pingree Park and cleaned the entire Mack Avenue Community Church building. They all had such servant hearts and were awesome to be around. What I am most excited about is that Christian Centre wants to partner with us in some capacity in the new year as well. Pastors Olu & Trevor from Christian Centre Church are very passionate about continuing this relationship. I have shared this Pastor Leon and have discussed a possible trip to Toronto to visit the church and their community in the hope of strengthening our bond and encouraging each other in the faith.
We have also been building a relationship with Cornerstone University in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Matt Wallace who teaches at Cornerstone and is associated with Friendship Sports International is friends with Pastor Eric and Sarah Russ. Matt and his family really believe in what MACC Development and Mack Ave Community Church are doing here in Detroit. He has made it his mission to get Cornerstone Students out off their comfort zones and show them what we are doing here as well. Matt Wallace, his family, and students from Cornerstone University have been making day trips here once a month since the Spring. He is hoping to build momentum so that perhaps during Spring Break or Summer of 2019, Cornerstone will send a group of interested students to Detroit for a week-long missions trip.
If you are interested in schedule a day, weekend or week-long trip with MACC Development simple send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
