OKM - About Us
Operation Kindness, which is part of our broader Military Ministry at MBC, supports our deployed service members in Afghanistan through monthly care packages and direct interaction with the WIA in local military hospitals and their visiting families. The ministry has been active for 9 years and has sent more than 90,000 lbs (45 tons!) of items in their monthly care packages to contact chaplains and deployed family members of MBC. Each box contains a bible, tracts, personal letters, and an invitation to our internet campus in addition to the snacks, toiletries, coffee, etc.
Thank you for remembering to support our service members!
