Global Missions

A potluck was enjoyed by 15 on Friday April 18th at the Church. Global Missions Director Jeff Bleijerveld  gave a talk on all the missions the United Brethern church is involved in. A few things that I remember are that in Thailand little kids are sent down from the mountains to make money because they are no longer needed to pick tea. There they are unfamiliar with city life and are soon used as prostitutes. We are trying to establish a safe place for them to go and live. Our hospital in Sierra Leon was vandalized in a revolution. Jeff went to visit and found the grounds keeper/maintance man doing surgery. He had some knowledge from watching previous surgeons work. Sierra Leon has been our mission field for over 150 years. We no longer send missionaries there as they are standing on their own. Global missions would like to get a Dr. there.. In Macuau the population is 10,000 people per square kilometer.You have to go in as a teacher. You can't bring up religion but if they ask you can answer or direct them to another person of their ethnicity. In India we have a school that is made up of children all with the aids virus. Please remember our missions in your prayers.
