Dear Church Family,
In January, our family joined the team mission trip to Orphanage Emmanuel and our hearts were changed forever! We could feel God’s love and see His presence in every corner and could hear God calling our family to serve at the orphanage in a much greater way.
As a single parent household, our family has experienced many trials, but we’ve always had a community behind us to remind us that God is good all the time and that there is hope for a better life! First UMC of Union County has been a large part of that community for many years! We believe God can use our story - with your help - to build His family by offering support, love, and encouragement to His children at Emmanuel.
Our family will be serving at Emmanuel from June 16 - August 19 with a possibility of returning in the fall, and we’d love for you to join us! We are looking for prayer partners within our church family that will commit to praying for our family every day during this mission. By joining us in prayer, you play an integral role on our mission team! We know that with God, all things are possible, and that the communication lines need to remain open for us to know His will and to stay strong. Please email Kathy Cook at firstname.lastname@example.org to join!
If you’d like to donate funds to our family, you can write a check to the church, just be sure to write “Honduras Mission Team” in the memo line so that the office knows it is for a special fund.
In His Love,
April, Zoey, Zayden, and Micah Southern
1 Thessalonians 5:16-17 Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing.
