Serve Ministry Supports Kassidy and Caden Strause in 2021 in their mission with Cru at Kutztown University

Greetings and congratulations for joining us in 2021! We’ve been able to hear from many of you during the holiday season about how things are going and what some of you are facing as we step forward into a new year together. For most, you’ve expressed emotions and events being all over the place from extreme highs to extreme lows. We feel that! And for those of you we have not been able to connect with recently, we can only…

Update from HUMC Missionaries, José and Audrey Banales

Dear HUMC Friends, Our wish this year is that you will see God’s blessings for you in surprising ways that you do not expect – ways that may seem ordinary, but would not have happened without God’s touch. I’ve heard it said that a coincidence is an “unexpected occurrence in which God chooses to remain anonymous.” May God continue to surprise you today! Our prayer requests will tell you what’s happening so far this year. Thanks for Praying! Please pray…

New Year’s Greetings AND UPDATES

From Jenny Groff, Campus Missionary at Yale University I hope you had a joyful Christmas! In 2021, we are praying God would strengthen you and for you to experience His deep compassion and care.Though we may not know what this new year holds, we certainly know the one who holds it. Thank you for partnering with Yale Chi Alpha this past ear! It is because of your prayers and support that we are able to love and serve Yale students.…

Update from Julie Campbell

Spring has brought us some heavy rains, although they are not as bad as last year. The rains keep us from visiting Life for Children orphans and guardians, but we do get a day off now and then when roads are too flooded for us to travel. That’s when the Lord lets us rest, or catch up on reports and emails! Because of new government restrictions, we have had to cancel fellowships and postpone crusades. Outdoor meetings cannot exceed 100…

Latest newsletter from The Wrights in NC.

Dear Friends and Family, We trust this finds you and your families well. As we draw closer to the end of 2020 (was that a sigh of relief we just heard?), we are sending our latest newsletter that includes an update on Keith’s ministry with Wycliffe’s Member Care Team this past year as well as an update on the small, Christian school where Debbi serves as the Office Manager. The main part of the newsletter is titled Change, planned and unplanned.…

Life for Children Update

Dear Friends at Hempfield UMC, Thank you so much for your generous support of $4,080 for Life for Children Ministry this past year. Even during the pandemic, we have been able to continue to provide family-based care for children, provide several homes for widows, complete the building of the school library and dormitory and provide Covid-19 protective supplies. The construction of homes for widows, student classrooms, the school library and dormitory has become even more important in the wake of…

Update From Jenny Groff

I’ve blinked – and it’s suddenly November! We’ve even had our first snow in New Haven! Through the ups and downs of this semester, I’m so proud of our team, student leaders, and interns for continuing to faithfully sacrifice for the glory of God. Jesus says that if we abide in Him, we will bear much fruit; apart from Him we can do nothing. With opportunities and ministry moments stripped down, we are learning to lean into God. It is…

Operation Christmas Child 2020

HUMC is once again encouraging you to participate in Operation Christmas Child. While there will be no lobby table set up or handouts available at HUMC this year, Samaritan’s Purse has lots of helpful information and many useful resources on its website to make it easy for you to participate in this beautiful ministry. Rather than build a shoe box, if you simply would prefer to give a donation of either $9 to cover the shipping cost or give a donation of…

Yale Students Desire Christian Community

Update from Jenny Groff, serving with Chi Alpha at Yale University as a missionary who receives financial support through HUMC August was a busy month! It has been a time of flexibility, creative planning, and thinking on our feet. Currently, some 75% of Yalies are living on campus (and quarantining in their dorm college). The rest are either taking classes at home or taking a leave of absence. It has been an adventure figuring out how to serve and reach…

Update from Keith and Debbie Wright (Wycliffe Bible Translators)

Greetings from North Carolina. We trust this finds you well Mission Network News recently ran a story, “Wycliffe USA supports missionaries during COVID-19 pandemic.” It gives a glimpse into some of the impact our missionaries have experienced with COVID-19 and how Wycliffe’s Member and Care Resources Team (MACR), the team Keith is a part of, has been these serving members over the past months. Currently, Keith is working with 3 families who returned to the US due to COVID-19. Two families from…
