April 2021 Mission
BACKPACKS FOR LIBERIA
In this past year and a half, it’s seemed that nothing has remained the same. We have had increased need in our own community, and we have tried hard to meet it. But one thing does remain the same for us as United Methodists.
Our founder, John Wesley, famously said, “The world is my parish.” This remains true for us today.
Our schools in Liberia continue to serve young people in this African country who would not have such opportunities without our help. Our conference mission is again asking for supplies for these schools.
Because it’s difficult to shop for rulers, pens, pencils, compass/protractor sets, pencil sharpeners, erasers, chalk, Bibles, and the backpacks in which to place them, we have done this in quantities sufficient to fill 50 backpacks. With shipping, this would cost about $25 per backpack. If you can buy one, or contribute in any amount in May, just mark your offering for “Liberia backpacks.” It will be much appreciated.
