Ministry partner update: ICOMB – January 2023

Introducing the global family: 

Consejo de las Congregaciones de los Hermanos Menonitas en Uruguay 

ICOMB conference & MWC national member church 

The Mennonite Brethren church in Uruguay has culminated the year with much joy. We held united worship services and began the activities of the Institute of Ministerial Formation (CEHM).  

During the year 2022, we supported the activities of the churches on their anniversaries, received new members, and performed baptisms; for this, we give glory to God. In all these instances we sought to foster unity among the members and support the leaders.  

We ended the year with gratitude to God by preparing the children, youth, and ladies camp activities to be held in January-February 2023 in Villa Maranatha. 

As a challenge for next year we see with joy and hope the culmination of the group “Timothy Project,” which is already in its third year of leadership training. The desire to open a new work in Villa Maranatha is also a reason for prayer, in view of the growth of the resort, with a stable population, and the lack of churches in the area. We ask that you remember us in prayer to achieve these goals.
