The Wardrobe is located in Hayti, Missouri, and serves the surrounding communities with inexpensive clothing and when possible and for people who need it free food boxes.Â It is a ministry of the Office of Creative Ministries and the Hayti United Methodist Church, with support from area United Methodist Churches.Â Currently Stephen and Faye Rhodes, members of the Hayti United Methodist Church, coordinate the ministry and give voluntarily of their time and energy to keep the important ministry well oiled.Â Churches, families and individuals wishing to help make a Christian difference in the area may send contributions through the Office of Creative Ministries, 3009 David Drive, Columbia, MOÂ 65202 / 573-474-7155.Â It takes about $1,000 a month to purchase extra items for the food boxes.Â We invite you to pray about supporting this food ministry for a month by sending $1,000 or by sending $30 for a food box.Â In addition to financial resources the ministry needs two or three volunteers in mission teams to complete work on a brand new building that will help expand the ministry.Â For more information about this project you may contact Jeff Baker, at the Office of Creative Ministries.Â (email@example.com)

Volunteers in Mission is a grass roots mission movement where churches send volunteers to the mission field for a week or two of service.Â Morning Star United Methodist Church in O’Fallon, Missouri has been sending volunteers in mission teams to Guatemala.Â MissionCast was at Morning Star and interviewed a few of their recent volunteers during the break between their two worship services on Sunday morning.Â

Here is a letter that Emilee (pictured) wrote to her teacher upon return from the mission trip that she talks about in the MissionCast.
Dear Mr. Bearden,
The two best things I did over spring break was realizing how much God can do through one person, because when I was in Guatemala at the feeding center the founder of the feeding center (Sarita) had pretty much changed all the kids there. When the center started none of the kids would even make eye-contact with you, much less play with you. The other way I realized how much God can do was that God is helping Sarita keep all of the kids at the school and center alive through Sarita, the teachers, and the cooks. My other favorite part of spring break was getting to do Vacation Bible School at all of the feeding centers and that was one of the best parts of spring break because I love to see kids have fun. We did a Bible point and when someone said the point all of the kids had to yell “VIVA!” It was just really cool to see them smiling and having fun learning about God and Jesus! I hope you had a great spring break!Sincerely,

Life for most of the street children in the slums of Mumbai, India, defies description.Â Slumdog, is the descriptive word used in the movie that has swept the Golden Globes, the Screen Actorâ€™s Guild Awards and is nominated for 10 Academy Awards.Â The movie gives us a glimpse into life of street children in those slums.Â It is next to impossible to view the movie without wanting to reach out to them.Â The Methodist Church in Mumbai, India is doing just that and so can you.You can support the slum ministry of the Methodist Bombay Regional Conference by giving to any of the following three General Advance Specials of the United Methodist Church.
