arrow icon. God is at Work in Unmistakable Ways 
Local Haitian children and Mike Willis, former volunteer management coordinator for the Haiti Response Plan, share smiles together.

I have just returned from almost seven months in mission in Haiti. It is a time of joyous homecoming, of sad separations, of rest and recovery, of reflection and thanksgiving. I have seen God at work in unmistakable ways. I have been blessed to participate in the miraculous and healing work of Christ. It has been amazing.

arrow icon. The Faces of Clean Water in Nicaragua 
The traditional way of collecting water in Nicaragua requires women and children to walk for miles to a stream or river to fill containers to carry home.

For untold years, women and children in Las Mesas, Nicaragua, walked two miles each way to get water. Grandmothers, mothers, and children made this trip several times a day, every day-- walking in flimsy flip-flops across sharp rocks and hard-baked soil. They were going to fetch 5- gallon buckets of water, each filled bucket weighing 40 pounds.

Carey Cooper helped open the Susanna Wesley Preschool for the children of Camanchaj. Jesus keeps showing up at our back door unannounced in the form of a 4'9" Mayan woman with no front teeth. Jesus is going by the name Isabel and has a deviously cute baby named Norma slung over his back. You wouldn't believe how loud Jesus knocks and how persistent he can be with the door. The man, will simply not go away! Let me be perfectly honest with you...Jesus is really starting to tick me off!

Introduce Sunday School kids to kids in the Ukraine by asking them to imagine what it would be like to be in the city parks of Kiev.

These are just some of the ways that teachers, parents, pastors, and kids in United Methodist churches can join in the 2010 Children's Fund for Christian Mission. This annual fund offers creative ways to capture and build on children's natural enthusiasm for learning about and caring for children in the world through mission.

Relevance X Connects Youth with Mission

Are you ever hungry during church? Regardless of whether I eat breakfast or skip it entirely before the service, I am always hungry. This is especially the case on Sundays when communion is offered. Oddly, though, on these Sundays I am never hungry after I take communion. There is something quite literally filling about the Eucharist--the Body of Christ--that sustains me.

arrow icon. Holy Week in Haiti 
Communities in Haiti find refuge under tents at a nearby basketball court.

It was Tuesday morning. Since Palm Sunday I have been experiencing Holy Week in a different way from previous years. I have been preparing for my first trip to Haiti, which is also my first trip as Deputy General Secretary nominated to lead the Mission and Evangelism Program of Global Ministries. The trip to Haiti gave me a special insight into Jesus' walk to the cross. I saw His experience of death and resurrection re- lived by the people of Haiti. I felt I was about to meet Him again in the suffering of that people.

arrow icon. How Prayer Angels Are Blessing La Gonave Island, Haiti 
Prayer Angels are symbols of promise for families who have no way to educate, feed, or provide medical care for the children of La Gonave Island, Haiti.

My husband and I have served as mission volunteers on La Gonave Island, Haiti, since 2007. Few in the United States know that La Gonave belongs to Haiti and is the most remote area of the country. Southern La Gonave is 40 miles from the Haitian mainland on the windward side--the area that gets hit by most of the hurricanes but receives little of the normal rainfall. Ground water there is deep or nonexistent, so water accessibility is a problem and food production is a challenge.

In terms of single-event viewership, it's the biggest sporting event of the year in the US. It's so big, the US government refers to it as an unofficial American holiday. It generates billions of dollars in economic activity. It's a 60-minute game that becomes a several-hours-long telecast. It's the Super Bowl.

Health-care workers at the United Methodist Hospital in the Congolese village of Tunda face new challenges every day as they work
to provide care for patients with HIV/AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis. An estimated 1.5 million Congolese live with HIV/AIDS.

Disheveled children of every age and size crowded around our vehicle as it ground to a stop in front of the United Methodist Mpasa Reference Health Center in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It was in this sprawling suburb of Kinshasa, DR Congo, that I was to assess health facilities for the Central Congo Conference. Dr. Rebecca Yohadi, the conference's Chief Medical Officer, told me that the Mpasa suburb sprang up in 1998 near a military installation as a camp for displaced persons and refugees.
