PLMC is made up of dedicated women, men and/or families who :
- have been called to follow Jesus through a commitment in another
culture and/or country where they will create solidarity links and
where they will help make the Kingdom of God more visible;
- are sent elsewhere by their local Church to live an ecclesial
experience and thus help to build bridges between the two Christian
communities to which they belong;
- are invited, when they return to their own culture/country, to keep
their commitment by sharing their experience.
The challenge :
" Go therefore and make disciples of all nations ". Matthew 18:19
"It is not possible to take on the role of volunteers only on the wings of
enthusiasm. This service calls for the spirit of poverty, the ability to work
without ostentation, discreet and cordial friendship, sacrifice, listening,
sensitivity to cultural and spiritual values, discernment and the witness of
a truly Christian life… John Paul II
" You have redeemed us, O Lord, in your blood
out of every tribe and tongue and people and nations. " Rev 5: 9-10
