arrow icon. Oregon Youth Decide to B1 
Since 1990, CEREIMI has opened its doors to children, offering shelter, protection, and a place to be reminded of who they are, and where they know they belong.

Tell eight youth and three adult volunteers that they will skip food for 24 hours and you can imagine the responses! But once these members of Madras United Methodist Church in Madras, Oregon put their minds to it, there was very little complaining. The B1 campaign raises awareness of issues of poverty locally and globally.

Anna, House Mother at Instituto Agricola Kusayapu, Methodist Extension to Andean Youth (EMANA). Through the ministry of missionary Becky Harrell and EMANA, children like Anna discover and freely share that God's love has no beginning and no end.

Harrell, now a missionary, came to realize that many persons who want to see only beauty and eat only delicacies have "holes" within that go unfilled. She says, "During my years in Chile, I have witnessed a filling of the 'hole' among many members of Volunteers in Mission (VIM) teams or individuals who have ventured to live and work with those living in poverty."
