Foreign Facilities

When the gospel takes root in a new area, the new congregation soon needs a place to gather for service activities and fellowship. The establishment of a regular meeting location creates a sense of stability, commitment, and home. The meeting place also provides a constant visible sign of the congregation’s presence to both believers and unbelievers.   

Our experience has shown us that congregations need assistance with funding, building planning, and construction management. The MW3 Facilities Committee works with believers in foreign mission fields to identify service facility needs and find workable and affordable solutions to those needs. Each of the MW3 organizations makes an annual contribution to a foreign facilities fund that is used to pay for approved facility projects. The LLC raises money for its annual contribution to the fund by special donations. Every donation, small or large, is welcome.

This web page includes descriptions and photos of pending, in-progress, and completed facility projects. Please take a look. We hope that you will consider supporting the work of the gospel with a contribution to this fund. Every donation, small and large, will help us provide places of worship for our brothers and sisters in foreign lands.  If you would like to make a contribution click on the "donate" tab above.

To make a donation for the benefit of these project, click "Make a Donation" and select "Foreign Mission Special Project Fund" from the drop-down menu. Thank you for your donation!

Busumbala, Gambia

May 11, 2021

The newly constructed church in Busumbala, Gambia is the believers first church in Gambia, and is an important step in helping them to organize and develop a sense of identity. The project began somewhat unexpectedly in late April due to the Covid pandemic. During the initial period, many Gambians were not able to work at their normal jobs but could work on this project. Thus, there was a great deal of volunteer labor, allowing costs to be kept down. The project is now completed. Dedication services were held January 8–10, 2021.
