161. MissionCast – The Mozambique-Missouri Bridge

Mozambique Initiative

There is an important bridge that connects the congregations of the United Methodist churches in Missouri with the congregations of the United Methodist churches in Mozambique.   I doubt that there is a more active United Methodist bridge between continents anywhere in the world than this one that we in Missouri have built and support with our covenants and donations.  The bridge is traveled many times a week as Carol Kreamer, our Mozambique Coordinator, in Pacific, Missouri turns on her computer to talk to Ezekiel Nhantumbo, our Mozambique Initiative Representative, in Maputo, Mozambique.  Listen in on what happens through this MissionCast and then find a way for the church group you are a member of (choir, Sunday School Class, youth group, etc.) and your whole congregation to keep this bridge strong and active. 

 

Send your donations to the Missouri Conference Office clearly labeling them as “Conference Advance Special, Mozambique Coordinator” or contact Carol Kreamer for information about entering a covenant relationship with either Ezekiel or Carol or both.  Phone: 636-271-4455 or Email: cpkreamer@hughes.net

For more information go to the Mozambique Initiative website www.moumethodist.org/mi or the support pages where you can actually make a commitment online – www.moumethodist.org/mi/missionary and www.moumethodist.org/mi/support.

147. MissionCast – Giving Online Is Quick And Easy

Giving Online MissionCast #147 is a special Christmas MissionCast that shows step by step just how easy it is to give online to a United Methodist General Advance Mission Project.  Your local church, district and conference will receive credit for your gift.  And you can even make your donation as an alternative Christmas gift.  Or you can give your gift in honor or in memory  of someone you love and respect.  Pick from a variety of gift cards and messages and before you have time to print one out you will receive a donation receipt for tax purposes from the General Board of Global Ministries.

Donations can be made to all kinds of projects and organizations in Missouri, across the nation and around the world through the Advance.  Donations can also be made for the support of any of our United Methodist Missionaries through this channel of giving.  A few examples of ministries that can be supported through the Advance that we are familiar with in Missouri are PET, Kingdom House, Spofford Home, Heifer International, Habitat for Humanity, Bread For the World, UMCOR and many many more.
