Monthly Mission Focus

Midwest Mission Distribution Center, a ministry of the United Methodist Church, distributes kits around the world and around the corner for health, education, and disaster relief supplies. Since opening for ministry in 2000, they have been showing God’s Love in practical ways. Midwest Mission transforms the resources of God’s people into humanitarian relief, powered by your prayers and contributions, and connecting with local aid organizations. They are one of eight cooperating depots with UMCOR, distributing UMCOR supplies to US disasters.

While many families are still struggling to cope with a pandemic, floods, hurricanes, and more, Midwest Mission has provided humanitarian relief to children and families in Guatemala, Honduras, and America! Shipments over the past year have sent urgently needed relief supplies such as Rice meals, birthing and student kits, personal hygiene essentials, furniture, water tanks and more For more information, please visit midwestmission.org

St. Mark’s will partner again with Midwest Mission Distribution Center for a Rice Meal Food Pack. All meals go to non-profits internationally. In connecting with “Food for the Poor” response is given where the need is greatest. Last year St. Mark’s provided and packed 14,460 meals for people in Haiti!

Can you help us to reach our goal of $5000 this year for another Food Pack? Although each meal only costs $0.33, this is an increase from last year and support is needed.
