Winter Missions Breakfast

Our MCCF 2020 Missions Breakfast was held on January 25

at the Rochester Academy of Medicine.

We had a standing room only attendance of nearly 60 with four inspiring testimonial presentations from around the globe. Fellowship lasted until noon!

Before introducing our speakers, Dr. Heather Ma announced the start of a local CMDA chapter of Women Physicians in Christ, a monthly evening when women physicians in the Greater Rochester area are invited to share a time of prayer and mutual support. Click here for more info.
