There’s already lots of excitement about the new way of supporting this year’s mission projects. To contribute towards your church’s giving campaigns the resources below are for your ministry use.

Our Conference is anxious to help further the good work of the organizations that are helping people seeking asylum, people needing legal advice around immigration issues, and the devastation in Tonga from the recent cyclone. The items that churches can donate to Tonga will be brought to Annual Conference and loaded into a shipping container that will head out to Tonga after Annual Conference. As always we are excited about the generosity of our Desert Southwest people.

Please send your church’s total donation amount with church name and district to Billie Fidlin, Director of Outreach, at  by Wednesday, June 6, so we can celebrate how God is at work across the Desert Southwest Conference! Remember, your church can use the graphics and videos below as ministry moments during worship or small groups.

The following are the recommended donation items for the Tonga shipping container:
