MONTHLY MISSION EFFORT
APRIL MISSIONS PROJECT:
The Missions Ministry Team has selected the Midwest Mission Distribution Center (MMDC) for our April project.
The MMDC, located near Chatham, Illinois, is associated with the Illinois Great Rivers Conference and is operated by the United Methodist Church as part of the UMCOR relief supply network in the United States which responds to natural disasters worldwide. MMDC is non-profit and receives 100% of its funding from private donations. The operation of this distribution center depends entirely on the generosity of individuals, churches and communities. For many church groups, it provides a ‘hands-on’ mission experience.
For example, on January 30, 17,562 pounds of supplies worth $135,000 were loaded onto a truck bound for Key West, Florida. From there, the MMDC has partnered with the U.S. military's Southern Command (“SouthCom”), and they will transport these supplies (school kits, school desks, medical supplies, bicycles and back packs) to several countries in Central America.
If you would like to help with this effort, please make out your check to Wesley UMC with MMDC on the memo line or click on the $ button at the bottom of the page. If you prefer to make a cash donation, there are blue mission offering envelopes in the pew backs. Thank you very much for your support.
