We hope everyone made it through Black Friday and that you are enjoying your Small Business Saturday!
Today's Giving Tuesday #UNselfie was sent to us from Nan Rogers of St. James UMC in Greenville, North Carolina. This church in the North Carolina Annual Conference has been sending medical teams to serve with the the Boca Costa Medical Mission in Guatemala since 2004. They primarily serve indigenous Mayan villages in the Western part of the country. During their mission earlier this fall, they held clinics in the villages of Paquila and San Antonio, provided children’s fellowship in two Methodist Churches in Paquila and La Toma, provided women’s fellowship in Paquila, painted a rest home in Mazatenango, and spent a day giving music and fellowship for residents of the rest home.
This is a perfect example of how a mission team can draw upon the strengths of each member to provide more than just one type of service! What a blessing this team is to the Mayans in Guatemala; we look forward to hearing more from St. James as they continue their service in Central America!
