Short-term awareness trips in HONG KONG and MAINLAND CHINA.
Encouragement Teams are designed to bring about greater awareness of the needs of people in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Simple tasks such as painting or cleaning are often a new experience for some. Two or three days, usually at weekends, are spent learning how to serve and share God's love with needy people, showing them God's love in a practical way.
MMM has been serving those who are living in "Leper Colonies" (Leprosy Villages) in China. Currently, we run a few trips each year. Join us to experience the blessing of serving.
Coming up! Please ring MMM office at 2605 4813 for details.

We loved to use colorful balloons to brighten up the village.
Therefore, many balloons were used in the drama we did.
Get to know more about leprosy, see what these people said:
"We have drugs for people with diseases like leprosy" "But these drugs do not treat the main problem, the disease of being unwanted. That's what my sisters hope to provide."
- Mother Teresa
"We are treating a person not a disease. Learning to love the individual. People are created in the image of God. You would not think a leprosy village is the place you would learn about the infinite worth of human beings. But God sent his son to die for each one here in this place."
- Dr Paul Brand
