We support several missionary families around the world and send teams each year to build relationships and share the Good News of Jesus Christ. We provide opportunities for our members to participate in church-based community development projects such as medical and clean water initiatives.
We are growing in community with the Sewasewe Genet Compound. It is home to 180 orphan children, 135 people with mental illness, 25 elders and 85 volunteers. We are working on a long-term plan for bringing clean, safe, and sustainable water by building multiple wells. Our other purposes are to implement humanitarian principles that will engage directly and target the need for food and to provide over-the-counter medications.
Republic of Georgia
We have been working in partnership with the Tbilisi Sea School in Tbilisi, Georgia, which serves internally displaced persons who lost their homes because of military conflict. We continue building relationships with the teachers, students and families of the Tbilisi Sea School by providing English lessons for the students and working on various construction projects.
We make regular mission trips to Chimbote, Peru to assist with building a school, holding Bible schools, and experiencing the presence of God with the people of Chimbote. Our college students visit in the Spring, and MFUMC hosts a medical mission in the Fall.
We help with construction projects, teaching, and daily chores at La Senda Children’s Home, which serves 150 local children through education and spiritual development.
We help with a ministry to senior adults and engage in cultural exchange through cooking, Bible study, worship, and exploring the beautiful surroundings and history of Prague. Our focus continues to be relationship-building, visiting Methodist churches, meeting church members, and working in partnership on community development projects, worship, and Bible study.
Mission team members are given the opportunity to visit a part of our nation often overlooked, a Native American reservation where you may be asked to paint a wall, cook a meal, or help conduct Vacation Bible School.
Mission Team Prayer Partners
Every mission team member has a prayer partner to offer support, encouragement, and daily prayer for the trip and the mission.
As a prayer partner, you would:
- Pray for the mission team member each day,
- Write 3 cards of encouragement that the mission team member will be given on the trip, and
- Come forward with the mission team member when the team is commissioned in worship.
