Love God & Love Neighbor

Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,

In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.

FUMC Edna has supported Missionary Guillermo “Willie” Berman in 2020 and we are grateful.  As the Rio Texas Conference Secretary of Global Ministries I would like to invite you to Willie’s Virtual Itineration, or church visit, October 22, 2020 for 1 hour from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm Central time on Zoom.

Attached is the event flyer.  Please note you do need to Register for the event and include as many in your congregation as you wish.  As there are 4 missionaries itinerating at the same time, when you Register select Willie’s name, then the day of the event you and your church will be taken to a Zoom Breakout Room and hear Willie’s presentation and chat with him and you will have time to ask questions as well.  We do hope you will make it on October 22nd at 7 p.m. Central time.

Join us as we explore the transforming work of missionaries serving around the world.

You will have the opportunity to meet in a small group to hear a presentation from a single missionary during the call. Find out more about these missionaries below, or at www.umcmission.org
