Kentucky Methodist Making a Difference in the World
June 26, 2015
In the next month, Kentucky United Methodist will be traveling all over the world seeking to make disciples who transform their world. Beginning Thursday, June 25th, nineteen youth and adults are headed to region of San Estabin in Honduras. Members of this team come from six different districts from Owensboro to Maysville and everywhere in between. They are joining with another UM group from South Carolina to help locals lead a VBS for 130+ Pech children. The team will also assist the Pech Indians in building chimneys, latrines, walls, and pouring concrete floors. You can pray for this team by participating in the prayer calendar that is provided. Next year’s trip is scheduled for June 25th-July2.
Eleven people from six different churches in the KY conference, First UMC in Peoria, IL and a Catholic church from the Covington area leave on July 9th for Thailand. This group will visit three local churches and the Blessing Homes in Pattaya and Isan. The team will help finish the newly acquired second building to the Pattaya Blessing Home which will expand the sanctuary and provide an apartment for the missionary family who is coming to serve. Building relationships is one of the primary purposes for this trip as well. You will find their prayer calendar here so you can uphold this team in your prayers.
