381. MissionCast – Ubuntu Journey to Africa – United Methodist Women

HaitiA picture of Marian Gooding, from the Alton United Methodist Church, was on the back cover of the September Response magazine, the national magazine for United Methodist Women. She had been on a United Methodist Women’s Ubuntu journey to Zimbabwe. Ubuntu Journeys are unique, short-term mission service opportunities of United Methodist Women to interact with the world through mission partners. We caught up with her at the Alton United Methodist Church and asked about her experience. Marian will happily share this experience with UMW groups in Missouri.

In 2015 Ubuntu Journeys are being offered to Cambodia, Cameroon and Costa Rica. For more information go to www.unitedmethodistwomen.org/ubuntu
