Mountain children's ministry
Mountain Children's Ministry (MCM) is an an American nonprofit organization that ministers to vulnerable children and families in rural Uganda by sharing the hope of Jesus through acts of love, generosity and encouragement.
The vision for ministry to the mountain children of rural Africa began on a visit to the Kabale district of southwest Uganda in July of 2012 by Michele Pageau and her work colleague Mpeirwe Ivan Twino (“Ivan”). They recognized the needs of these rural farm orphans and felt called by God to help these vulnerable children.
Michele Pageau and her husband, Mark, have been an active part of the Jericho family for years.
Missionaries around the world
We count it a privilege that we are fulfilling God's calling to go and make Him known in the world through our prayers and financial support for these, His servants:
Abby Coster attended Jericho Road during her time at Wheaton College and is now encountering the presence of God, equipping others for the work of God, extending the Kingdom of God, and exalting the name of God in La Paz, Mexico at Rancho El Camino.
Rancho serves children, youth, and families through recreational therapy, community development initiatives, and traditional church-type ministries. Rancho works alongside local churches and the local government to provide various types of programs for children, teens, and families throughout La Paz, but specifically those who are living in poverty on the backside of the city. Rancho works and serves to see the local body of Christ lifted up and reach its full redemptive potential. Rancho has a strong missional focus among teens in Mexico and the US and hosts intensive and holistic internship opportunities for youth from both countries. In addition, Rancho hosts short-term teams, who come to share in their way of life, work alongside already existing programs, and ultimately learn how to live lives of service and compassion for their Lord and Savior.
Lydia Wright was part of the Jericho community while attending Wheaton College, but now lives in Nairobi, Kenya, working in operations with Amani ya Juu.
Amani ya Juu is a Swahili saying which means “Peace from Above.” Amani is a social economic enterprise committed to peace and reconciliation for women from many African nations and cultures. Using beautiful African materials to create high- quality, fair trade home goods and accessories, and through belief and faith in a good God who provides a transcendent peace, together, the women of Amani heal from the past. Lydia is thrilled to be growing with the women there and in other parts of East Africa in dignity, respect for one another, and in the Lord.
