The UMC In Mission to the World
submitted by Bonnie Hyatt
Let me introduce you to the New York Annual Conference Missionaries around the world.
Click here to see more information.
From the website: “Missionaries in the field are the Lord’s feet on the ground, in places we are not. They serve as agents of God's transformation. They do not go and fix problems on behalf of others. Instead, they go to be in ministry with the local community. They go to learn, listen and serve as witnesses of God's transforming grace and power.”
Please say a prayer for their safety, health and strength.
