.##'Tearing Down Walls of Death(


MCC was born into the modern world as a response to exclusion, rejection & discrimination; its identity is
tightly interwoven with the story of the Jesus movement͙ a movement that attempted to confront the
world͛s cruelty, so similar to that which we experience today, a world in which there is no place for people
who are different & in whose view the great majority fall outside of access to rights &opportunities: the
poor, women, children, those who are ill & aliens.‘ ‘‘‘‘‘ ‘‘

‘
‘faces, situations & circumstances will change; that which has not changed is the love of Jesus
Christ that triumphs over and tears down the walls erected by oppressive power, the love of Jesus Christ who
resisted &overcame without negotiating or abdicating his liberating mission for humanity.‘
›ur Latin America ʹ impoverished, exploited &permanently colonized by economic, political &religious
powers ʹ shares the experiences of the majority of the excluded in Jesus͛ time. MCC arrived in Latin America
with its message almost 30 years ago ʹ first to Mexico, then Argentina, arriving later in Brazil & most
recently in other countries such as Nicaragua, Uruguay, Venezuela, the Caribbean, El Salvador & others‘

‘ MCC has impacted the political, social & spiritual reality for
thousands of individuals & even for nations. Proof of this is the voluntary involvement of hundreds of
leaders who in these 30 years in the name of MCC have raised their prophetic voices for social justice,
equality & non-discrimination, confronting fundamentalist &homophobic discourse through their visibility &
affirmation of their faith.

communities that embrace the Christian hope & the strength of the Gospel to help so many people in their
processes of personal liberation, opening a way for the Spirit of God that generates new life in thousands &
thousands of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgendered people & their families. The liberating presence of
the Jesus of the Gospels has been right here, walking with us in His footsteps.‘'
