On March 23, 1869, eight women gathered at Tremont Methodist Episcopal Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and organized the Woman's Foreign Missionary Society, what would become United Methodist Women. Those women raised money to send a doctor, Clara Swain, and a teacher, Isabella Thoburn, to India as missionaries to serve the women of that nation.
Each United Methodist Women is asked to contribute $18.69 on March 23rd. This will be matched up to $100,000 by an outside entity. Make sure you mark this as part of the Legacy Fund and Day of Giving for it to be counted.
