The past year has been a difficult year for our United Methodist missionaries to visit churches and share stories of their ministries. They have been on the frontlines across the globe serving in about 350 plus global ministries in more than 60 countries during this time of a global pandemic. Our missionaries have stayed faithful to their call. Missionaries serve in different communities and capacities outside their communities of origin. Some serve as doctors, nurses, pastors, church planters, evangelists, etc. to make a difference in the lives of God’s people. It takes people like you and your congregation to partner in God’s global mission work through your support for our missionaries. For a full list of these missionaries visit; https://advance.umcmission.org/Projects.aspx?SearchText=Missionary#results
Are you and your congregation supporting missionaries? Opportunities are available for your church to support missionaries even in this pandemic. Global Ministries of The United Methodist Church is providing virtual #StillInMission Episodes where missionaries around the globe share their work. This is a great opportunity to be in mission with others. Have you made a commitment to support a missionary? Missionaries need your support through prayer, salary support, ministry support, and relational support. Missionaries covenant can be found on this link, https://umcmission.org/partnerships/
Do not miss on the upcoming mission events through the Global Ministries. Our missionaries have not been able to itinerate physically because of the pandemic. Thank God for technology, you can still make a difference by participating via Zoom.
