A volunteer in mission team will soon be leaving Michigan for service in The Liberia Conference. They covet your prayers.
The Rev. Terry Euper is leading a Volunteer in Mission team to Liberia October 25 – November 8, 2018.
Prayers are appreciated as nine persons from The Michigan Conference leave for West Africa on October 25, 2018. The Volunteers-in-Mission team will work on projects assigned by the Liberian Annual Conference VIM Director, Dehkontee Tarr.
- building a playground at the Bishop Judith Craig Children’s Village;
- constructing a pigpen at the White Plains Agricultural Center; and
- painting rooms at the College of West Africa and Bopolu Mission.
The team will also visit Ganta Mission and will participate in the dedication of a well in the Kokoyah District in memory of the late Millicent “Billie” Rench of Owosso, Michigan.
Thanks to the former Flint Crossroads District (now East Winds) for providing the project money for its second team to Liberia. The first team went in 2005.
This 2018 team consists of members from Hale, New Life, Northville First, Owosso First, Genesee/Thetford, Sanford and Clarkston UMCs. Team members ask for prayers from the congregations across Michigan as they work in 90 degree temperatures.
The Liberia Conference is a covenant partner with The Michigan Conference.
