“…when the Holy Spirit comes upon you,
you will be filled with power,
and you will be witnesses for me in Jerusalem,
in all of Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth…”
2010 is a landmark year for Couples for Christ Singapore (CFC SG) as it started to broaden its horizon by embarking on INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS. Since its inception in 1987, its focus was primarily on renewing and building strong Christian marriages and families within the different parishes of Singapore. Thus, in response to the global CFC community’s directions, it finally launched its CFC regional mission center and started sending short-term mission volunteers (MVs) within the Asia Pacific region.
COUPLES FOR CHRIST SINGAPORE MISSION READY TEAMS (MRTs)
CFC Singapore for some time had been supporting Timor Leste financially together with other Mission Areas but it has been the only way we were supporting International Mission. However responding to the call of CFC International Office to expand support to the International Missions, the Community conducted a “Mission Volunteer” workshop which was well attended. Thus was born CFC Singapore Mission Ready Teams (MRT’s).
At the moment there are eight MRTs supporting the territories which are categorized as follows:
- NORTH ASIA
- BLOG Team (supports China Mission)
- SOUTH ASIA
- SOUTHEAST ASIA
- DAMASCUS (supports the CFC community in Batam, Indonesia)
- SALT TEAM (supports Myanmar)
- JRMG (supports Phuket in Thailand)
