All I Want for Christmas...
In today’s culture, as we think of Christmas most people think of gift giving. We often ask our friends and loved ones, “What do you want for Christmas?” This year I would like us to think about the most important things we want. Hope, Peace, and Joy.

The Monthly Mission Focus
Mission Trip to Bolivia
In the month of June we finished the granny square quilt, had a potluck dinner and evening program with Jenny Wolheter and her family, explored options for our UMC Mission team going to Bolivia, raised money for Feed My Starving Children and Clean Water Ministry, we also saw pictures of the new motorcycle that UMC financed in May and Paavo gave an update Clean Water Ministry. Darlene and Kandy crocheted 300 granny squares using remnants of
yarn. Some of the yarn came from the Knit Wits. Dar and Kandy also had lots of small balls of yarn to use up. The quilt will be on display soon. Jenny Wolheter is the Bolivia missionary that rescued the 2017 UMC Mission team when Bryan and Molly Canny had to return to the states for Bryan’s dad’s funeral. Jenny stayed in Santa Cruz while the 2017 UMC Mission team was in Santa Cruz. Her home in Bolivia however is Cochabamba.
The next UMC mission trip is February 15-25 2020. We will have the opportunity to serve in both Santa Cruz and
Cochabamba. Information for this trip is in the narthex at church. June 30 UMC is helping with the bounce houses at the carnival during Water Ski Days for this effort UMC will receive $1200. We will use $600 for Feed My Starving Children Mobile Pack and the other $600 will go to repair the well in Jarbuken Liberia. The well has been used so much that some of the parts wore out. This money will pay for the repairs and help the well diggers dig a deeper well. We need help from you. We have to find a way to get filters to Liberia. If you have any ideas please share them with us. One more thing, join the Heart Linked sewing group on Wednesdays at 6:30 at church. We sew toys and clothes for Liberia. Come when you can and leave when you need to.
