“And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.” -Matthew 24:14
What is Open Heart Evangelical Ministry OHEM?
OHEM is the missions ministry of Machias Christian Fellowship. This ministry began specifically to reach out to migrant workers who visit downeast Maine each year. Hispanics, Haitians, and Native Americans travel to Maine each year for blueberry season (summer), and wreath season (winter). By the grace of God, men and women from all over the world have been reached in Maine with the good news of Jesus Christ. We are determined to continue reaching foreigners and locals in downeast Maine with the only news that can turn a heart of stone into a heart of flesh. (Ezekiel 36:26)
In 2017, OHEM began gospel outreach on foreign soil with a mission trip to Eldoret, Kenya. There we had the privilege of serving alongside Pastor Josh Lawrence and Calvary Chapel Eldoret. In 2019, we would reach out to India to share the word of God and bring His light into the darkness of the sex trafficking industry.
And recently at MCF, we have sent out our first missionary to the country of Nepal. We pray with great hope that God will continue to send teams from MCF across the world to share the glorious love of Jesus.
