Mission Opportunities - How Can You Help?

 
Christian Students Scholarship Fund

With unemployment in the West Bank averaging around 30% and a dangerously declining Christian population, it is imperative that the churches pull together to help the remaining Christians.  When I asked Palestinian families what fellow Christians could do help, the answer was always the same.  They pleaded, "Help us educate our children."  They know that without a proper education their children cannot possibly succeed in today's world and due to the desperate conditions too many families can no longer afford even basic tuition.  This fund which was originally set up to help the Christian children of Beit Sahour has now expanded to help Christians in other villages - including Bethlehem, Beit Jala, Taybeh, and Zababdeh.   If you would like to help a Christian child in need please use the donate button below to donate via PayPal or send your tax deductable checks to First United Methodist Church 566 South Haywood St.  Waynesville, NC 28786.

The Elderly Care Center, Beit Sahour

   

This wonderful project helps elderly

people from Beit Sahour and the

surrounding villages with social

interaction, a hot meal and various

activities.  There is no monetary help

for the elderly in Palestine and the

responsibility and care of elderly

parents puts an even greater

strain on families.  The Center helps

relieve some of this stress and

provides a wonderful caring

environment for the elderly. 

For more information on any of these mission projects  please contact us.  Remember that 100% of your mission dollars go directly to the mission of your choice.
