395. MissionCast – One Great Hour of Sharing

HaitiThe Missouri Conference has received from the United Methodist Committee on Relief or UMCOR many millions of dollars in the past 20 years to bring relief to survivors of floods, tornados, fires and ice storms. It is interesting to note that UMCOR the world-wide disaster response agency of our church receives no operating funds through apportionments. UMCOR is able to provide hope and relief to millions solely because of the generous donations given through special appeals and the One Great Hour of Sharing.

199. MissionCast – 134 Baptisms in Ghana – Living Word UMC

Little Bethlehem

While praying and fasting, a leadership group at Living Word United Methodist Church, felt God calling for their congregation to reach further out in mission.  With more prayer and fasting they felt God calling them to reach out to Sub-Saharan Africa.  As a part of this process of discernment the Rev. Michael McIntyre was fasting and praying suddenly “Ghana” flashed in his mind.  He did not know anything about Ghana and didn’t know where in Africa it was.  The leadership team felt God was calling them to reach out to Ghana.  The congregation contacted UMCOR about helping with pure water in Ghana.  A missionary with UMCOR said they should come and listen to the people to hear from the people what their needs were.  A trip was organized which included Senior Pastor Michael McIntyre, Associate Pastor, Rev. Gregory Philip Finfrock and Director of Multimedia Ministries, Michael Logsdon.  Several videos of their trip may be found on a special website the church created to direct attention and help for Ghana from their congregation, other congregations and other organizations and individuals in their community.   Find their new website at www.helpghananow.com.

In our MissionCast Michael shares an incredible experience where they were called upon to baptize 134 persons who responded to their preaching and to the leading of the Holy Spirit.
