http://feeds.feedburner.com/missioncast    Sadly, video viewing on the internet while becoming very popular, pretty much requires a high speed internet connection.  At home I only have a dial-up connection and it maybe that dial-up is all you have as well.  If you are willing to wait 5-10 mins for the download you can still view the low resolution version of MissionCast.

10. School Kits

School KitsThere is currently a great need for school kts.  In this MissionCast Rev. Joyce Holley, our Missouri Conference clergyperson appointed to serve with Church World Service, shares information about this need, tells about the items that go into a school kit and demonstrates putting a school kit together.  Once the kits are assempled they need to be placed in a sturdy card board box and then taped and label as “school kits.”  The school kit is one of two kits that will be received at Annual Conference this year.  The other kit is the “reading and writing pack” for use by children in Missouri.
