Monthly Mission Focus – Midwest Mission

Midwest Mission, 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, Midwest Mission has been showing God’s Love in practical ways. They transform the resources of God’s people into humanitarian relief, powered by your prayers and contributions, and connecting with local aid organizations.

While many families are still struggling to cope with Covid-19 and many hurricanes, MMDC has provided humanitarian relief to children and families in Guatemala, Honduras and America! Shipments over the past year have sent 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 fall Rice Meals which St. Mark’s helped pack and provide, sent food for over 27,000 people in Guatemala!
