The West Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church supports a wide variety of mission partners, both local and global, in advancing our common mission to 'make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.' Each month, we will join together in praying for our brothers and sisters doing mission and ministry around the world.
For over 20 years, West Ohio has been sending medical teams to Mexico. Each year, six different teams partner with Manos Juntas, a licensed Methodist healthcare ministry. The clinic is mobile, with each team serving patients in 2-3 different locations. One of those locations is a migrant camp where people who have been deported and those hoping to enter the U.S. stay. Our teams bring not only physical healing but also healing of the soul and spirit. In addition, a children’s home called Casa de la Esperanza (House of Hope) opened in 2018 to care for children ages 6-12 who are without parental care due to abandonment or mistreatment. At House of Hope, they receive schooling, counseling and medical care, along with spiritual formation.
This month, please pray for:
- Week 1: The relationship between Manos Juntas Medical Clinic, the Oriental Conference of the Methodist Church, and The West Ohio Conference of The United Methodist Church.
- Week 2: The families in the migrant camp searching for a safe place to stay, where their lives can be rebuilt.
- Week 3: Volunteers in Mission (VIM) teams from West Ohio that continue to offer support and training.
- Week 4: The children and staff of Casa de la Esperanza, that they may experience hope and healing.
Never doubt that your prayers make a difference!
