First UMC Missions Christian Pen Pal Ministry: How Can I Pray For You?

January 12 - January 25

Please join us! Polly McKissick Montemayor, First UMC Missions Committee Chair, invites our entire congregation to connect with an individual in the congregation of Gold Creek Agape Church in Mezcales, Nayarit, Mexico. The goal is to establish a relationship between our two churches by connecting members directly and encouraging them to pray for one another.

This would involve writing a letter of introduction to be delivered to a member of the church in Mexico. The writer introduces himself/herself with a short bio and some personal information. Writers can include photos or email addresses if they wish. Somewhere in the body of the letter, the writer asks,” How can I pray for you.”

Letters will be delivered to members of the Agape congregation, along with a translation to Spanish. Agape members will reply to the letters, and the replies will be delivered, along with an English translation, to the letter writers from FUMC. Agape members will also ask, “Como puedo orar por ti?”

If you have questions or need additional information regarding this outreach ministry, please contact Polly McKissick Montemayor at (936) 591-5586, swimsuits@yahoo.com or Pastor Karen Jones at (936) 598-2707. Please deliver your letters to the church office by Saturday, January 25, 2020, to the attention of Polly or Pastor Karen. Thank you.
