From My Block To Yours exists to love on the ChangeMakers of the world that live their everyday life poured out to others. We thoughtfully and intentionally support modern missionaries, advocates, and church planters through monthly sponsorship, thoughtful “gifts", retreats, and outreach.
The irony for many individuals called to mission work, advocacy awareness and planting revolutionary churches is that it can be very isolating. In the very season of being the tangible love of God, they are not always tangibly covered by the people around them. It’s important to care for the caretaker and love on the lovers. So, FMBTY fills that space to become their village. We are the hub for revitalizing and refreshing the energy and spirit of those called to a life of spreading the truth of Jesus and taking care of His sons and daughters in the world. God is doing bold new things in this world, so we are taking a bold new approach to the culture of the modern day disciple.
What Makes Us Different
FMBTY fills the massive void that exists in covering ChangeMakers as they carry out their God given missions. We do this through creating a multidimensional space rooted in tangible support, relationships and retreats for missionaries, church leaders, and activists.Learn More
Our ChangeMaker's Stories
In the Fall of 2013, Maria Atkinson left her home of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and set out for Haiti to begin an adventure she was quite unprepared for. Having little prior knowledge of the country, culture or language, she began her journey in Haiti working as a non-profit, missionary photographer. From the northern streets of Cap-Haitien, to the rural mountain villages of the southeast, Maria realized she longed to make a deeper investment into the lives of the Haitian people.
