Youth Groups & The 2020 Mission Project: Water for the Navajo

by | May 29, 2020 | Mission Project, Billie's Blog, Conference Newsletter, Mission Opportunities

Recently Rev. Jen Lambert from Red Mountain UMC shared some exciting news about her youth group that I wanted to share with you. How great are the hearts of our young people! 

Jen shared:

 Summer usually means a new rhythm for our youth: a reprieve from schoolwork, vacations, and for those who choose, a missions trip. The summer of 2020 has impacted the world in such a way that it seems a mission trip will be unlikely for the youth of Red Mountain UMC(RMUMC). Throughout the past 12 months, the youth have worked to raise funds for their annual mission trip. With the guidance of their Youth Leader, Brooke Payne, RMUMC Youth voted to support the missions project for Annual Conference with some of the funds they raised. They look forward to future opportunities to support the ministries on the Navajo Nation.  

 Perhaps your youth group would like to join in! For more information & various articles on this year’s mission project click on the following link: https://dscumc.org/annual-conference/mission-project/

Your donation will support emergency relief aid needed so desperately during the pandemic. Please send your donation to the Conference office no later than June 10th.

 

Note: Our Conference is honored to be working with the Navajo COVID-19 Command Center, Window Rock, in the distribution of water humanitarian aide regarding all Conference donations for the Navajo Nation. Questions? Please contact Billie Fidlin at bfidlin@dscumc.org
