arrow icon. Global Ministries Reflection and Prayer on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 
Artwork, letters, and other articles were placed at 9/11 memorial sites in New York City.

This coming Saturday will mark 10 years of the September 11, 2001 attacks. The reactions that followed this event radically changed our world and the context of Mission. As we take time together to reflect and pray we are mindful of other instances of violence, including the recent shootings in Norway and all the places and people in the world who suffer violence in this very hour.

arrow icon. Gaza: Life Blockaded 
Fatima Al-Dalo, a 62-year old breast cancer patient, prays in her bed in the oncology ward of the Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City.

Gaza is like a prison in many ways, surrounded by high walls on three sides. Gun towers oversee the free-fire stretch of scorched earth and rubble, warning anyone--including farmers who once tilled the land--against getting close. On the fourth side, the west, the Mediterranean inexorably draws the eye to the horizon; but it, too, is forbidden.

Near the end of the 20th century, a decade of planning, summits, and conferences involving member governments of the United Nations culminated in the UN Millennium Document. This document, adopted by UN member nations at the 2000 Millennium Summit, serves as a multinational commitment to reduce extreme poverty around the world.

arrow icon. Hope Is Here in Haiti 
Women in northern Haiti are part of a farming co-op that provides them with a sense of solidarity.

If you ask those who have worked in Haiti about the country's character, you'll probably get an answer close to the one that Melissa Crutchfield, of the United Methodist Committee on Relief, recently gave me. "Haiti," she said, "is a country where endurance, strength, and faith are in great supply. Haitians are resilient, tough, and they have a fighting spirit."

The students on the team were part of an assembly line for the construction of two more bathrooms at the Petit Goave Guesthouse.

When I was a freshman in high school, I attended a summer camp at which noted preacher Louie Giglio spoke. He was preaching about the Great Commission, and the words he spoke have resonated in my heart since I heard them. "Go," he proclaimed, "unless you are called to stay."
