399. Missouri UMC in Guatemala

CampingThe sixth mission team from Missouri United Methodist Church, in Columbia has returned and we met Caryl and Jim Bryan in their home to learn about that they have been doing. As you can see their dog, Jasper, was an attentive listener.
The Missouri United Methodist teams have been working in the very poor villages of San Juan La Laguna, San Pablo and Palestina located along Lake Atitan. Each team has had a medical and construction component. For further information you may contact Caryl Bryan or Melissa Clarke who have organized the teams. The Missouri UMC number is 573-443-3111.

372. MissionCast – Hope Swings (Palmyra UMC & Mt. Olivet UMC)

HaitiThe Palmyra and Mt. Olivet United Methodist Churches recently built swing sets for families with children in Washington, Illinois. Last November a devastating tornado ripped through the town. While houses were rebuilt rapidly play equipment for children were not. So three churches in Illinois started the “Hope Swings” project with the goal of building 100 swing sets in 42 days. This MissionCast tells about Missouri’s participation in “Hope Swings.”
