Welcome to CMRC

June 2024 Newsletter

I returned yesterday from 2 weeks in Cuba filled with adventure.   What the Cuban people are enduring is very sad.   I can’t truly feel their suffering, but I can show them compassion that comes from my heart.

During my travels, I always get asked what snow is like.  What is it like to be outside in the winter?  I may have answered by telling them to go stand in a walk-in freezer for an hour and you may get the feeling.

April 2024 Newsletter

Two weeks before Easter, I asked Michel, our friend in Cuba, how most evangelical Cubans celebrate Easter.  I asked him about their celebrations in the church and in their homes.

March 2024 Newsletter

Over the years that I have been a missionary, Marni and I have talked about when would be a good time in our lives to retire.   We have always said that as Christians, we never really retire, however, we do stop doing the heavy work and continue to share Christ with others.

Welcome to CMRC

With practical and spiritual gifts of help, CMRC assists pastors and ministries serving in communities of poverty to fulfill their passion to reach people for Christ 

Working with local organizations in Canada and missional agencies overseas, we help churches become strong through developing an outward attitude to serve others.  We provide valuable resources to better equip churches across the globe to share the Good News and to provide for those who are unable to afford necessities. Presently we work in Peru, Guatemala, Cuba, Colombia, and the Philippines and are working to expand our reach.

Our Mission is to serve as a catalyst to help leaders mobilize Canadians and the local church overseas toward a more effective, personal involvement, in helping the world’s needy both spiritually and in practical gifts of helps.

CMRC prioritizes providing resources to help equip national church pastors and local leaders to minister. Through educational programs, donations for necessities, and pastoral assets, our global church is better able to help those in their community.

our philosophy

“If God puts something in front of you, try it!”

Have you ever heard the saying, “God opens doors!”

At CMRC we see the doors that the Lord places in front of us instead as a symbol of opportunity.  We believe that God does not necessarily open the doors for us, but instead He unlocks the ones we are meant to go through. In the world of missions, you are often called to blindly follow the call of the Lord. This means not always seeing what is on the other side. Our philosophy is based around the idea that even if a door is closed, it may be unlocked, so try it!

Learn about the Journey

Karen Elizabeth Rojas Torres 

“As a teenager, I attended camp in Colinas de Sion, a place about 4 hours from the city. I spent an awesome week meeting many people, making many friends, and of course learning about Jesus. I remember I accepted Jesus as my Savior at the camp and I decided to continue in His ways fulfilling the purpose that He has for my life. A year later, my father passed away and the time after his death was difficult for us (my mother, my sister and I) however, at every step and every day we could see the benevolence and mercy of God towards us because we never lacked food and we have made an effort to continue the path of faith.”


Helping People Around the World

“We are so happy to have been a part of CMRC used laptop program. It is very important for the ministry and as you know, in our own strength, we are not able to afford this expensive piece of equipment. God has been good, because He chooses you to help us and support us with financial resources and it has been a big blessing to my family.”

Carlos Castillo and Kirenia: Pastor in Cuba
